Gobber is a hobgoblin first found in Bilgewater Port. He is somewhat of an anomaly among hobgoblins. He has an almost meek personality (at one point cowering from a fight), high intelligence (for a hobgoblin), friendliness, and banking skills. Gobber is very loyal to the player's character and was the only hobgoblin on the Lost Isles to side against Trade Prince Gallywix. According to Garrosh the hobgoblin has an unpleasant odor. His red skin color is somewhat unique too as most hobgoblins have a purple or whitish pallor.
He first appears among the players friends in the quest "Rolling with my Homies." He is also stranded on the Lost Isles with the player and acts as the bank on the Lost Isles.
After Gallywix was subdued and the goblins started their move to Azshara, Gobber was found wandering around in Orgrimmar. When the player meets Garrosh to give him a message, the new Warchief asks them to take Gobber along with you as seems to recognize you.
As a Racial
After talking to Garrosh Hellscream the player can summon Gobber whenever they like and access their bank through him.
