Pygmy is the presumed main language of the pygmies.

There was once a great leader of the pygmies whose name translates as "Dark Tan Helmet".[1] The titan symbols covering the Ornate Tablet Fragments are noted to be far too elaborate for pygmy scrawl.[2]

Untranslated words or phrases


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

The pygmy language may or may not be related to the goblin language, given that goblins and pygmies are said to share an unknown common ancestor.

Translation speculation

  • "Gobin" = "Goblin"
Aside from the obvious similarities of the two words (the pygmy word only lacking a single "l"), Yngwie says GOBIN!!! when aggroed by goblin players, and many of the phrases he yell out seem to be orders to kill, capture and/or sacrifice the captured inhabitants of the Town-In-A-Box.
