The Treasure Goblin was added as part of the Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Collector‘s or Digital Edition. I had a chance to collect mine from the in-game mail earlier along with the following letter:
From the writings of Abd Al-Hazir:
“Some devious little goblins have been
robbing our merchants! When pursued,
they simply open portals and disappear
with a most aggravating chuckle. The
peasantry seem to believe that the
Goblins serve a great demon lord
known as Greed and furthermore, that
their portals lead to Greed’s domain! A
ludicrous notion, truly.”
Watch your coin purse, adventurer.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from his abilities or animations but when you summon him, you can hear gold jingling. He will also throw handfuls of gold every now and then (which can’t be picked up) and got a real kick out of his death animation. It’s just what you’d expect if you’ve killed one in D3 (as seen towards the end of the video).
As usual, you can see all his abilities (Coin Toss, Wild Magic, Dodge, Magic Sword, Sear Magic and Portal) over my usual circuit of tamers in Pandaria. I forgot to change one of my teams during the Flowing battle but it still worked out – the result of not levelling any pets for several weeks, I guess.
Having both Wild Magic and Dodge seems pretty OP (especially during that one fight) but if you don’t mind his constant cackle, he’s a pretty fun pet to have around.
Just remember, keep and eye on your coin purse.
Originally, this was supposed to be a WTT post but it turned out to be more of a wish list – but not just any wish list, just look at what’s included.
I understand some are more doable than others but that’s why it’s my rather large wish list.
I just missed out on this by a hair so last week’s Shared Topic comes to us from Noahdear:
Winter Veil is around the corner and it’s time to sit upon Greatfather Winter’s lap and answer the important question, “What do you want for Winter Veil?” Is it that expensive grand expedition yak? a nice transmog custom outfit? or a Red Ryder carbine-action, two hundred shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock?
What is on your Winter Veil wishlist?
Funnily enough, I had started this post a few days ago as I wanted to see how my list differed from my previous one written earlier in the year. I’m happy to report that I can mark one of those off my list. :)
There have always been a number of items I’d love to have in-game, although some are more possible than others. A few I’ve even written about like the NPC of my character but in more of a Lara Croft type feel than an Indiana Jones or Tyrande one. Completing my Val’anyr will be one of those things that require time, patience and a lot of luck.
A few pets also rank high on that list with the Collector’s Edition companion pets from vanilla and BC. But the Ethereal Soul-Trader, Lil’ Tarecgosa and Tyrael’s Hilt have all been on that wish list as well. The Onyx Panther will be made one day (most likely at the end of the expansion).
However, I couldn’t finish this list without adding the three spirit pets I’ve been religiously trying to collect each day. If only I listened to my own recommendation and picked the Thundering pet as my reward that first day. Each time I fail, the drive to beat him becomes even stronger so I’ve been known to stay there for a while on some days. If only the amount of attempts (in consecutive battle moves) gave us a higher chance of getting the pet from the reward bag. I’ve had so many long battles with him that I would surely have the pet by now.
Although the Darkmoon Eye will have to wait until next month, I’m comforted by the fact that Jeremy’s team is a lot easier to defeat. Lastly, the remaining ones from the classic raids seem the most doable right now – if not for their elusive drops.
Hmm, I sensing a theme here… I may have a pet fetish. (Like you didn’t know that already…)
No matter, here’s to marking as many of these off my list.
