Gadgetzan

Updated for Patch 7.0.3

Gadgetzan is one of the four goblin towns of the Steamwheedle Cartel. It is located on the east coast of Tanaris, just south of Thousand Needles.

Facts

0/1000 Exalted is required for Insane in the Membrane and 70 Exalted Reputations. Keeping the reputation is not required for credit for Insane in the Membrane, but is required for 70 Exalted Reputations.

Overview

Gadgetzan provides the best opportunity to grind pirates, providing direct reputation gains just one point short of Exalted. Most of your reputation gains for all four goblin towns will be obtained here.

Hated – Neutral

To reach Neutral you can either grind pirates as discussed below, or use the repeatable cloth turn-in quest.

I recommend doing this turn-in last after the other three towns due to the high reputation gains obtained via pirate grinding (20999/21000 Revered, one point short of Exalted). My recommended sequence for cloth turn-ins is: Everlook, Ratchet, Booty Bay, Gadgetzan. Of course, this is subject to the availability of cloth on your realm.

Low level players should approach carefully, as the nearest Gadgetzan Bruiser may be just outside aggro range while standing here. Depending on your level and exact position, you may pull the guard.

The nearest place to purchase Strong Flux for Alliance players is Caz Twosprocket in Theramore (if Theramore is in ruins, talk to Zidormi at the end of the bridge just west of Theramore to visit Theramore before its destruction) and for Horde players is Chase Everseek at Dawnrise Expedition, Tanaris. You can also purchase Strong Flux from Jeeves.

Pirate Grind

In addition to these mobs, you can also kill pirates for the other goblin towns and collect spillover reputation for Gadgetzan.

Eastmoon Ruins, Tanaris

Killing Wastewander pirates grants Gadgetzan reputation through 5999/6000 Friendly and spillover reputation with the other goblin towns through Exalted.

I do not recommend grinding here due to the low reputation cap, the low number of mobs and their relatively slow respawn rate, especially compared to nearby Lost Rigger Cove.

Name Level Reputation Respawn Time
Caliph Scorpidsting 48 Rare 15
Wastewander Darkcaster 47 5 5-8 minutes
Wastewander Survivalist 47 5 5-8 minutes
Wastewander Tracker 47 5 5-8 minutes

Lost Rigger Cove and Southbreak Shore, Tanaris

When you go to Lost Rigger Cove, you’ll see Alliance gnomes and Horde goblins battling the pirates at what used to be the pirates’ stronghold here. Pass through the battle and head south along a short path until you reach a second encampment with two docked ships at the beach. This is where you will want to grind. These mobs have a very fast respawn time and you will never have to move very far to find a group to kill.

Killing Andre Firebeard grants Gadgetzan reputation through 11999/12000 Honored and spillover reputation with the other goblin towns through Exalted.

Name Level Reputation Respawn Time
Andre Firebeard 47 Rare 25

Killing most Southsea pirates grants Gadgetzan reputation through 20999/21000 Revered and spillover reputation with the other goblin towns through Exalted.

You will spend much or even most of your Steamwheedle Cartel grind in this area due to the high reputation cap.

Name Level Reputation Respawn Time
Burning Southsea Pirate 45 5 Spawned via event
Southsea Musketeer 46 5 5-8 minutes
Southsea Pirate 45 5 5-8 minutes
Southsea Strongarm 46 5 5-8 minutes
Southsea Swabbie 46 5 5-8 minutes
Southsea Swashbuckler 45 5 5-8 minutes
Southsea Taskmaster 46 5 5-8 minutes
