Janeiro's Point is a small island just outside Booty Bay, upon which a giant statue of an unknown goblin with outstretched arms was built as a beacon to all travelers, welcoming ships to Booty Bay.
In Cataclysm, Janeiro's Point for the most part has taken little damage. The giant statue, however, is damaged; its left arm has been destroyed, allowing entry by flying mount into the statue. Inside is a small alcove filled with unlootable treasure and chests, however it does contain a quest reward after completing .
After the Fourth War, Mathias Shaw and Flynn Fairwind visited the inside of the statue, mentioning it as hollow and the interior no longer filled with treasures, but with prisoners, animals, squatters, illicit substances, rotting corpses, fleeing couples and, once, even a tarnished crown.
- The statue and its name is obviously a reference to the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, a symbol of the city and of the nation of Brazil.
During the alpha the statue was that of a human, rather than goblin.
