Moved from Talk:Gilblin

So... are these Gilgoblins? Or was the term gilgoblin replaced with Gilblin? Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 04:07, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

According to the Gilgoblin page Gilblins are "a group of gilgoblins". I think they're a subset of Gilgoblins based mostly in the Kelp Forest. Korval (talk) 05:13, July 18, 2010 (UTC)
That was added after you created the Gilblin article... so I'm a little hesitated on believing everything I read on new articles. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 19:57, July 18, 2010 (UTC)
Well it's your call. Whatever you side to do with the information is fine by me. Korval (talk) 21:09, July 18, 2010 (UTC)


does anyone know what zone these goblins will be? Oh and is it possible to make a gilgoblin model (goblin reskin) Hallowseve15 (talk) 00:48, November 5, 2009 (UTC)

Cataclysm isn't even in alpha yet; we don't know anything about where they will appear. I think I can safely say though that the chance of getting a gilgoblin skin for player characters is pretty much zero. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 00:51, November 5, 2009 (UTC)


They seem to bear a manner akin to murlocs. The picture shows one holding a spear, they're aquatic in nature as well. Maybe they'll be like broken ones are to draenei? Bob Namataki (talk) 18:50, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

My guess is that they're the precursor race. Goblins lack any link to Titan origins, and they originated from the isle of Kezan, which means they could be evolved to live on land. Not to mention goblins prefer to live along coastlines or anywhere close to large bodies of water, namely oceans. Also, going along with the murloc similarities, Murlocs were said to have predated the Titan's arrival, meaning they were a natural Azerothian species. Could be the same for goblins, or in this case Gilgoblins. IconSmall FelbloodElf Male.gifWarlock Vae Victis 22:30, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

Race name

Bringing this back up... I'm starting to think gilblins is the new term being used for gilgoblins ... Other quests might have not been more convincing since often times quest descriptions say to kill certain creatures, which most often is the exact name of the mobs. But in the quest B [81] Hostile Waters, where the mobs are named Muckskin Scroungers, the completion text (least for the Horde) calls them gilblins. While the Alliance one calls them gill goblins.

What does the Hobbart grapplehammer calls them? after all he was their creator.--Ashbear160 (talk) 03:56, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
I'll have to recheck his quotes... I stayed around for like 5mins taking a screenshot of all of them... he has a lot. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 02:16, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
Alrighty then, he does call them gilgoblins. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 02:32, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
Then i think that's the name we should use--Ashbear160 (talk) 02:40, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
However, this horrible excuse for a strategy guide calls them "Gilblins". I should go look for that book and try to confirm it.--SWM2448 02:54, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
The information on that guide is also largely outdated, maybe it should be best to leave it at Gilgoblins, and add a "or Gilblins" at the beggining--Ashbear160 (talk) 03:06, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
It can stay where it is for now, until we get more clear answers... however, it's clear that both terms are for the same creature. So I merged the articles. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 03:52, 20 February 2011 (UTC)


Due to this recent change I'll have to point out that every quest involving these guys, no matter their "faction", they're being called gilblins. The term is being used as a racial term (along with, but rarely gilgoblin) not a group term. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 02:59, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Their creator calls them gilgoblins so i would prefer if we go with that, since in the RL the creator/finder tends to give the name to the things they find/create--Ashbear160 (talk) 03:24, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Right, that's why I haven't moved the page. But I don't want to see gilblin turned back into a faction article. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 03:34, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm not the one who did that...--Ashbear160 (talk) 03:39, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
I know... never said you did. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 03:50, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Kay--Ashbear160 (talk) 03:51, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
I think that may be just their nickname, after all, the creator names them gilgoblins, and there's gilgoblins named gilgoblins down at Throne of the Tides.--Lon-ami (talk) 12:04, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
