    Goblin Drink

    I am somewhat skeptical of Goblin Drink being the pop item for Goblin Wolfman. Some of these reasons have been discussed but my primary reason is that it doesn't seem to fit with the other NM's that are forced popped that came in the June-August 2005 update.

    A list of the Pop items used to pop NM's from this update.

    Found (from ???):
    Shield Bug

    Dropped:
    Air Tank
    Clustered tar
    Fomor Codex
    Fresh Blood

    Crafted:
    Slice of Carp

    Items:
    San d'Orian carrot
    Distilled water
    Sleepshroom
    Danceshroom
    Woozyshroom
    Honey
    Pamamas

    Crafted (requiring significant skill):
    Antlion Trap
    Shrimp Lantern
    Adamantoise Soup
    Premium Bag

    For the regular NM's it's important to not that either the pop item is unique to this CoP update, or its a simple item that is easy to obtain -- including the slice of carp.

    For the NM's that require specially crafted pop items, they require significant crafting skills and some effort is required to obtain the ingredients. When these items are used, they generate a special message signifying that the NM has popped. The following are taken out of the dialogue files for their corresponding zone. The regular NM's do not have this kind of dialogue.

    PREMIUM BAG
    DialogTableEntry 00309 You gently place the ≺Marker: 7F8101≻≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Item
    Parameter 0≻ on the ground.
    Suddenly, you hear the clanging sound of armor approaching.
    It looks like someone is interested in the ≺Marker: 7F8101≻≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Item Parameter
    0≻...≺Marker: 7F3100≻

    SHRIMP LANTERN
    DialogTableEntry 00628 The ≺Marker: 7F8101≻≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Item Parameter 0≻
    begins skimming quietly across the surface of the water.
    ...What's this!?
    An enormous creature is chasing after it from below!!!≺Marker: 7F3100≻

    ANTLION TRAP
    DialogTableEntry 00294 You set the ≺Marker: 7F8101≻≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Item
    Parameter 0≻. The acidic smell of antlion wafts through the air.
    Suddenly, a sharp clang rings through the air! You have caught something!≺Marker: 7F3100≻

    ADAMANTOISE SOUP
    DialogTableEntry 00792 You set ≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Marker: 7F8103≻≺Item Parameter 0≻
    on the ground. The smell becomes almost unbearable.
    Suddenly, a huge creature approaches and starts sniffing around!≺Marker: 7F3100≻


    There is no dialogue for Goblin Wolfman which follows this pattern. The dialogue is in line with a simple forced pop. We should expect that the item is a simple and mundane item which simply hasn't been considered yet.

    It has been mentioned that time parameters may or may not be significant. Other forced pop NM's which are time sensitive indicate that they are time sensitive by some means or another. It is possible that the NM is time sensitive and the scrawled writing is always visible.

    The fact he is called Goblin Wolfman may suggest he may follow the pattern of a werewolf. The other Goblins, Moblins, and Bugbears in the zone have titles that follow this "man" tradition but don't seem to indicate their job. The .dat file for the mobs in the zone do not indicate he has a pet so we can be sure he isn't a BST, DRG, or SMN (Pre-ToAU so definately not PUP). Perhaps everyone should make an effort to retry items during a full moon to ensure that this possibility is eliminated or confirmed.

    Lately I have been working with ideas which might go with the "Scrawled Writing" or "Me Thirsty" clues. Why is he thirsty? Is it because he can't drink? Is it because he has no access to drink? Is it because he ate salty food? What might help him drink? Maybe he wants to be thirsty. Perhaps its a clue he will come out when he is given a reason to be thirsty. Perhaps giving him something to make him thirsty will make him angry enough to show up. Whatever it is I believe it needs to be a simple item that anyone has reasonable access too. Perhaps he wants a bretzel (I haven't tried that one yet but is bought cheaply from NPCs in 2nd+ place Bastok).

    EDIT1: I actually intended for this to be placed in the Parade Gorget: Revisited thread. I was tired and clicked new topic instead of post reply.

    EDIT2: I posted a copy of this where I meant to put it. Please lock.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?
