Gilgoblins or gilblins are a race of aquatic gnomes that live in the waters of Azeroth. They appear in the "World of Warcraft" series.


The adaptation to the gilgoblin to survive in aquatic regions has apparently drained their high brain functions, similar to their relatives. Instead, their actions are constantly involving or made entirely out of greed. This leads to them stealing things. Hobart Grapplehammer is the goblin individual to thank for possibly creating the gilgoblins.

The gilgoblin live in large clams, which they decorate with their treasures they find or steal. Items included in decoration are cannons and cannonballs and other unique items.

Their is no exact leader in gilgoblin society. King Gurboggle self-proclaimed himself as king of at least Gurboggle's Ledge.
