As much as I love the goblin starting area, I never really bought the story of how they came to join the Horde. Such a crafty, cunning race of people, and they decide their allegiance by joining up with the first group they run into? You'd expect them to at least make the Alliance and the Horde bid for their services. They might have considered it for a while. Submitter Malveragene of Windrunner (US-H) was questing in Icecrown when he saw that the Alliance gunship, from the right angle, strongly resembled a goblin. I guess Garrosh pays better.
