The Treasure Goblin comes with the Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Collector‘s or Digital Edition but I must admit, the datamined version was kind of creepy looking. It was always impossible to get a good look at them in-game but here they look almost cute. I had a chance to collect mine from the in-game mail earlier along with the following letter:
From the writings of Abd Al-Hazir:
“Some devious little goblins have been
robbing our merchants! When pursued,
they simply open portals and disappear
with a most aggravating chuckle. The
peasantry seem to believe that the
Goblins serve a great demon lord
known as Greed and furthermore, that
their portals lead to Greed’s domain! A
ludicrous notion, truly.”
Watch your coin purse, adventurer.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from his abilities or animations but when you summon him, you can hear gold jingling. He will also throw handfuls of gold every now and then (which can’t be picked up) and got a real kick out of his death animation. It’s just what you’d expect if you’ve killed one in D3 (as seen towards the end of the video).
As usual, you can see all his abilities (Coin Toss, Wild Magic, Dodge, Magic Sword, Sear Magic and Portal) over my usual circuit of tamers in Pandaria. I forgot to change one of my teams during the Flowing battle but it still worked out – the result of not levelling any pets for several weeks, I guess.
Having both Wild Magic and Dodge seems pretty OP (especially during that one fight) but if you don’t mind his constant cackle, he’s a pretty fun pet to have around.
Just remember to keep an eye on your coin purse.
