WoW Cataclysm - Bilgewater Cartel Reputation Guide


The Bilgewater Cartel is a powerful goblin trading company based on the Isle of Kezan. In the World of Warcraft expansion *Cataclysm*, these cunning goblin traders have sworn allegiance to the Horde, making them a faction that players can gain reputation with. While Trade Prince Gallywix is the nominal leader of the Bilgewater Cartel, he does not make an appearance in *Cataclysm*. Instead, the faction is effectively led by Boss Mida.

Players can engage in a variety of quests to increase their reputation with the Bilgewater Cartel. Achieving a high enough reputation with this faction will grant players access to unique rewards, including some stylish trike mounts that showcase the goblins' flair for engineering and speed. These mounts are a popular choice among players looking to add some goblin ingenuity to their collection.


Gaining exalted reputation with the Bilgewater Cartel offers several unique benefits, most notably the ability to purchase two exclusive mounts. These mounts are available to non-goblin characters, adding a touch of goblin engineering prowess to any player's collection.

1. Goblin Trike Key: This mount is a goblin-designed trike, embodying the ingenuity and mechanical skills of the goblins. It's a stylish and speedy vehicle that allows players to traverse the lands with flair.

2. Goblin Turbo-Trike Key: An upgraded version of the standard trike, the Goblin Turbo-Trike is faster and features a more intricate design. This mount is perfect for players who appreciate both performance and aesthetics in their in-game transportation.
