Gibblewilt’s location may have changed over the years but he’s just as creepy looking as ever, but then again he is a leper gnome. Levelling my (x = inset no. here) alt, I took this pic back in 2007. He used to be found under an air tower, but I’ve read that he’s also appeared behind his house (wherever that was). These days you’ll find him in the Toxic Airfield.

Seems this guy is also multi-lingual. Just check out his full dialogue:

[Gnomish] Um Giz modan Rune ti algos goten va giz
[Common] Noth lo ras nevrenrothas bur wirsh lithtos ash va o nagan Ti bor veld hir ras melka hir
[Gnomish] Zah frend we gizber bur va angor gal
[Orcish] No’ku ha ZIL’NOK revash re’ka ogar L ogg Zil’nok.
[Dwarvish] Eft golganar kealsag Gefunon kost ganrokh ok mos
[Gnomish] Dimligar Dimligar we zah mergud
[Gnomish Binary] 1 110 1101 110110 10 110 11001 1010 1001100

and some of the translations:

[Gnomish] “Hi! You there! Does it smell green to you?”
[Common] “Hand me the wizzlesproket, you dwarf-brained son of a human! No, not that one, the other one!
[Orcish] “There is NOTHING random about what I say! Nothing!”
[Dwarvish] “The darkness beneath Tirisfal will consume us all…”
[Gnomish Binary] “I was head editor of the Tinker Town Tattler!”

He used to drop the [Foreman Vest] and [Foreman Pants]. After a countless number of kills (since Cata) I have yet to see either *shakes fist. He does drop a 6-slot bag (in about four colours) most consistently and on rare occasions cloth. People have said the GMs they spoke to still say this guy drops the vest but I’m not so sure; as all the low level rares are guaranteed to drop 6-slotters to aid levelling.

  1. Leper gnomes *shiver*

    Dude is clearly confused about his race. He can’t even decide on a language to speak D:

  2. I know some rare-loot has been removed with the area level changes of a lot of old world zones, since there is about a handful or rare mobs that have had their level changed to match the zone’s target level (e.g. the Chromatic Sword, a level 41 sword on a now-level 31 mob – I’ve issued multiple tickets although no GM has been able to confirm if it has been removed).
    However, it’s been said on the forums by blue posters that if an item’s level doesn’t match the mob’s level, it’s probably not on the loot table anymore. I can’t say for sure if this is the case with the Foreman vest since it’s only a difference of two levels between item and rare, but I do hope the devs will find a way to bring back these items.
