Thank you for including my guide (stories in publication order).

To be clear, Cannibal made a guide of the stories in chronological timeline order, my guide I made but in the order the stories were published.

I only point this out because I worked very hard to make my guide and I did it by myself.

Edit: Here is a link to Cannibal’s guide, as it should be added as well.

I read the Time Is Money Cataclysm goblin guide a long time ago and I honestly feel it’s not worth including in the list.

It’s very outdated, and it honestly reads more like a “leaks from the new expansion” (Cataclysm) list than a guide to an extent.

Your organization skills and all the work that went into this speaks to my soul.

You are incredible, Feyawen! Thank you so much for putting all this together!!! I’ll add it to the welcome to WrA post when I update it tomorrow!

@Keelhaul Thank you for your feedback. “Time is Money: A guide to Goblins in Cataclysm” (circa 2010) is unquestionably dated, and has been marked :scroll: archived. You may notice this trend with some other guides as well, since not all articles or guides are maintained over the years. It is one of the few guides I located and was able to salvage from the wreckage of the Old Forums, and I had hoped to keep as many of those around for posterity as I can.

When guides become so dated that current lore far exceeds the lore of the old guides, I will add a :scroll: beside the title to indicate that it’s part of the Compendium for archival purposes.

When guides become obsolete, either because the player who wrote it is no longer active in the community or the game, or simply due to neglect, it will be marked with the :reminder_ribbon:.

In the event you find a more extensive and updated guide for Goblin Roleplay, I will be more than happy to add that to the list as well. :smiley:

Yeah… I noticed that too. :frowning:

This guide is likely lost forever, but it was one of my favorites.

https://eu.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/5723623840

I recall it had some inaccuracies, but was still rather inspiring for me with the number of ideas it presented.
