Booty Bay

Updated for Patch 8.0.1

Booty Bay is one of the four goblin towns of the Steamwheedle Cartel. It is located on the west coast of The Cape of Stranglethorn, near the south end of the zone.

Facts

0/1000 Exalted is required for Insane in the Membrane and 100 Exalted Reputations. Keeping the reputation is not required for credit for Insane in the Membrane, but is required for 100 Exalted Reputations.

Overview

Booty Bay provides a significant number of quests which decrease your reputation with Bloodsail Buccaneers. People who may eventually want to get the Loremaster achievement should complete these quests prior to starting Insane in the Membrane. Pirate grinding is available, even pirates which don’t decrease Bloodsail reputation, though the pirates are fairly widely spaced apart and the grinding is generally better elsewhere.

Hated – Neutral

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

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 have no issues reaching this quest giver as it is far away from the nearest Booty Bay Bruiser.

The nearest place to purchase [wow item=2604] is from Cowardly Crosby who is in the Bloodsail camp at the southern tip of Wild Shore, Cape of Stranglethorn.

Neutral – Exalted

Many quests which grant direct Booty Bay reputation also reduce your reputation with Bloodsail Buccaneers. For this reason, you may wish to complete these quests before starting that grind if you intend to keep your Bloodsail Buccaneers reputation afterward. This includes the three OOX quest lines culminating in [wow quest=3721], which all should be completed prior to beginning a Bloodsail Buccaneers grind.

The exception are the Brashtide Invasion quests, none of which decrease Bloodsail Buccaneers reputation. This means it is safe for people wanting to obtain Bloodsail Exalted to grind reputation in the Brashtide Invasion event; however, you must get out of the phase in order to have Bruisers to kill to continue your grind to exalted. This means that if you grind here, you will ultimately end up grinding Booty Bay reputation twice. For this reason, while you can get partway to Bloodsail Exalted during this event, it’s not a good idea. People who only want to maintain Honored, or who don’t care about maintaining Bloodsail reputation, can grind the Brashtide Invasion event with no problem.

In addition to these quests, you can collect spillover reputation by doing quests for the other goblin towns, in addition to the quests which grant equal reputation with all four towns.

Arathi Highlands Quests

Pirate Grind

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

Northern Stranglethorn

These mobs can be found at Venture Co. Base Camp and at a mine just south of Fort Livingston. Killing Venture Co. mobs grants Booty Bay reputation through 11999/12000 Honored and spillover reputation with the other goblin towns through Exalted. Killing these mobs does not decrease your Bloodsail Buccaneers reputation.

Name Level Reputation Respawn Time
Foreman Cozzle 28 5 5-8 minutes
Venture Co. Foreman 29 5 5-8 minutes
Venture Co. Geologist 29 5 5-8 minutes
Venture Co. Lumberjack 29 5 5-8 minutes

Venture Co. Workboss 29 5 5-8 minutes

Cape of Stranglethorn

Verifonix can be found just west of the main road, just north of the Gurubashi Arena entrance.

Killing this Venture Co. mob grants Booty Bay reputation through 11999/12000 Honored and spillover reputation with the other goblin towns through Exalted. Killing this mob does not decrease your Bloodsail Buccaneers reputation.

Name Level Reputation Respawn Time
Verifonix 34 Rare 5 24-36 hours

Venture Bay, Grizzly Hills

Killing Venture Co. Evacuees grants Booty Bay reputation through 11999/12000 Honored and spillover reputation with the other goblin towns through Exalted. Killing these mobs does not decrease your Bloodsail Buccaneers reputation.

I do not recommend grinding here due to the relatively high level and the very low number of the mobs.

Name Level Reputation Respawn Time
Venture Co. Evacuee 73 5 5-8 minutes
