Unrivaled among engineering-created explosive devices, this is an enhanced version of the  [Goblin Sapper Charge]. It follows the goblin principle of "maximum destructive ability, minimum self-preservation" seen in the side effects of other Goblin Engineering items.


This item is created with Goblin Engineering (425); taught by trainers.

Materials required:

  • Does 200 damage to buildings and walls that can be damaged in Wintergrasp.
  • Note that it does not damage "everyone nearby", just enemies, and the wielder. This suggests strategies involving multiple Goblin Engineers, albeit at 5 minute intervals.
  • Given the signature icon of a Mushroom cloud, the name is almost certainly a reference to the term "Global Thermonuclear war". Another possible reference could be the thermal detonators of Star Wars.
  • These bombs played an important part in the Goon Squad's Wintergrasp Speedrun.
