    Patch 8.3 PTR - Goblin Heritage Armor Preview
    The Goblin heritage armor quest chain is also available for testing on the PTR! Any level 120 Goblin that is exalted with the Bilgewater Cartel can start the quest from Izzy at the Orgrimmar Embassy.

    • The quest chain starts with "Old Friends, New Opportunities." Izzy says Sassy Hardwrench sent her to find you as she is putting the gang back together for a big job. She states that Sassy has arranged a ride to Kezan for you and to meet her at Hardwrench Hideaway in Stranglethorn Vale for the details.
    • Sassy greets you on arrival and gives you the quest "A Special Delivery." She wants you to deliver a package to Hobart Grapplehammer in Crapopolis (which seems to be the new town built upon the MOTHERLODE). She has a ride waiting for you at the docks, but cautions you to mind your manners as Gallywix has purchased the whole town.
    • Upon arriving you find Gallywix talking to Hobart. He heard that Hobart was working on something new and that he owns the rights to anything invented in perpetuity. Hobart says that contract is null and void because Gallywix forged his signature. Gallywix calls it a wild and unprovable accusation, and states once more that everything in Crapopolis belongs to him. He then takes his leave.
    • You give the package to Hobart and receive the quest "A Simple Experiment." Hobart says with the delivered parts he can now begin testing his invention, the X-52 Personnel Armor. He knows Gallywix will be up to no good now that he knows about this potentially indestructible armor, and asks you for help with the tests.
    • You begin by testing the armor against sub-zero temperatures. Hobart considers it a success even though the wearer has no vital signs because the armor is still intact. Next is thermal stress, to which another test subject is killed. The boots are unharmed though, so Hobart thinks he's making progress. The third subject is surrounded by explosives, and flees before the test goes off.
    • You then receive the quest "Shopping for Parts" and are tasked with getting parts from Crank Greasefuse. He will give you the parts if you can collect enough debts for the quest "Debt Collection!" After collecting debts via killing or intimidation, you receive the thermoplugs and return to Hobart via the quest "I've Got What You Need."
    • Hobart gives the quest "Blunt Force Testing" and says that since his lab assistants are gone or dead, you get to be the one to wear the prototype for the next set of tests! You put the armor on and are given an extra action button that will protect you from explosives and removes damage over time effects on a 10 second cooldown. This needs to be used to fight the Mechanized Lab Assistant, who uses fire bombs and other abilities to try and kill you. Upon killing the robot and surviving, you return to a pleased Hobart, who gives you the followup quest "Fun with Landmines."
    • Your final test is to use the armor to traverse a minefield that has a refreshing coconut beverage in the center as a reward. Upon reaching it you return to Hobart throwing wrenches at Gallywix to keep him at bay while the cartel leader demands he hand over the armor. Hobart has you defeat 8 hired goons for the quest "Let's Rumble." With the goons defeated, you tell Gallywix to leave, and he runs off claiming that this isn't over.
    • Hobart wants to find a buyer for the armor before Gallywix returns, and gives you the quest "Buyers Wanted" to return to Sassy to get the list of interested buyers.
    • Sassy gives the quest "The VIP List" in which she asks you to hand out invitations to the private auction. The first one is Noggenfogger in Gadgetzan, then Pozzik at Fizzle and Pozzik's Speedbarge, and Gazlowe in Ratchet.
    • When you return to Sassy, she gives the quest "Beat the Crapopolis Outta Him!" and says there is trouble. Gallywix took over Crapopolis with his goons and are holding Hobart hostage! You then must complete the Crapopolis scenario.
    • Upon returning to Crapopolis, all three buyers are there. You then have to work your way through the city and defeat Dax Blitzbaster, who is holding Hobart hostage. After rescuing him, you loot the X-52 armor as Hobart says he added a turbo function that increases the armor's power. You are then tasked with using it to defeat Gallywix who awaits you in a giant mech!
    • Upon defeating him, he is trapped inside his mech and your armor's power is depleted. With the buyers no longer interested you are given the armor as a reward for the quest "A Fitting Reward."
    • This completes the chain and gives you the Heritage of Kezan, which has both a visor down and up version!

    Crapopolis is the headquarters of BFA.

    Wish Blizzard put as much effort into these sets as they put in helping China suppress dissent.

    So just to make sure I understand it correctly.

    Some no name goblin decides it's a good idea to risk life of the Hero of Azeroth with countless accomplishments etc etc, in some dumb experiment. You could just find some more no name goblins, but no! Let's risk the life of that hero who's basically our saviour! So worth it!

    And then... you tell Gallywix, your leader, to... go away. Then you just fight him.

    I would hope that this quest isnt canon, but then Worgen quest is pretty good lore, so I guess this one is canon too. Which is a huge lorefuck really.

    That goblin should be killed for the pure stupidity he represents, and the goblin player should be banished from the Horde for going against his leader.

    Yeah, I know what kind of race goblins are. Still, you should design the quests within the universe bondaries. This one is just in conflict with general rules of the universe.

    Crapopolis is a fitting name, cause this whole quest chain is crap. They wanted to go for "funny", but they ended up with "absurdly stupid".

    It’s rather unlikely that the chosen of Azeroth is a goblin so you proabbly are some no name goblin lore wise.

    Not really, NPCs goblins are from multiple cartels.
    And technically gallywix shouldn’t be the goblin leader anyway cause he was about to lose his place as a trade prince at the start of the player goblin storyline, the goblin player character ended up beating the crap out of him and killing his lieutenants.
    Gallywix is only the leader due to thrall naming him the leader for repentance reasons. And let’s be honest gallywix is just in charge cause he keeps cheating people out of their payment.

    Also the player character risks their life’s for lesser things, hell we risked our lives for poop quests

    How so? Any source supporting the theory that we change the character we're playing for specific quests? Because if there isnt any, then its a fact that you, who fought argus, old gods and have a gift from the titan herself, are doing this chain.

    In Worgen quest, you specifically are asked to assist Graymane's daughter because you have strong ties to him from all previous world-saving experiences. He wouldnt ask a random worgen for that.

    He wasnt overthrown since then, meaning the goblins AND the other Horde leaders accepted him as an official leader.
    And "poop quests" do not compare. Fighting enemies on your way is one thing, it depends on your abilities, and as the hero you have them. Getting into a suit that can just explode and kill you, or can just stop working against all this fancy stuff you had to test, is just ridiculous, especially after seeing the two previous subjects die.

    These new sets don't seem up to the same level of polish that the other hertige armour was at. This in is better than the worgan one which looks like the leather 5 man set with a top hat. But still I had hoped and expected more from the concept of goblins :/

    We know from chronicles and the illidan book that our characters don’t do every quest and raid we do lore wise. Some of the hero’s who fight illidan die which means they are rotated out of the lore for future fights. We also know that raid kills are broken up by faction so while you might be able to go into naxx as horde you never actually did lore wise.

    You might be able to kill Argus and do the quest in game but that doesn’t mean your doing both in the lore as were just taking the place of X adventure lore wise not actually doing every thing.

    Anyone else think this heritage armor is dumb and a waste of time when they could be spending time on other things?

  11. #11
    Really phoned in these heritage sets.

  12. #12
    Both of these heritage sets coming in 8.3 are easily the worst out of all of them. Hopefully they're not yet complete.

    What else should they spend the time on? The quest team and armour team would be making quest and armour either way.

    It’s just as likely a goblin would be Azeroth’s savior over a blood elf, void elf, undead or worgen

    I’d say blood elf would be the most likely out of those 5. But if there is only one real heart of Azeroth it seems likely it’s a human orc dwarf or cow that has it, Mabye an night elf or a troll but they seem like likely.

    If you've done the goblin starting zone and paid attention to the quest text, you'd know the no name goblin is the one who invented alot of the wierd technology used during the initial questing as a goblin, and kaja'cola. Besides no ones likes Gallywix, the only reason he is the leader of the bilgewater cartel was because he happened to be the only one with a boat to flee Kezan and thus he became the single richest goblin by virtue of everyone else handing over their belongings to be "rescued" by him.
    If Kezan hadn't exploded Gallywix would've been a nobody since the player character was about to oust him as the leader of the Bilgewater Cartel.

    What would be a "lorefuck" would be if everyone was totally chill with Gallywix continuing to fuck them over.

    That's exactly what I thought lol. They're obviously very rushed, because they're devoid of all of the big visual features that the other sets have had (including lots of jiggle physics). They look fine and everything, just incredibly underwhelming when compared to the other heritage armors. The Worgen set in particular straight up just looks like cloth leveling gear or something.

    Gotta be honest I really expected a cloak much like the Tauren set but with rockets versus totems.

    What happened in Cata was loooong ago and your status as a character changed pretty dramatically since then. If he's that smart then he should know better than to risk the life of such an important figure within the horde.

    Disliking your leader doesnt warrant disobedience. If Gallywix is so disliked he should have been overthrown long ago, but he wasnt.

    This quest chain is a lorefuck and goes against the rules set within the universe by the writers themselves.
