Baron Revilgaz is a level 60 quest giver located in Booty Bay, in the contested territory of Stranglethorn Vale. He is the de facto ruler of Booty Bay, and from his balcony atop the Salty Sailor Tavern, he has an overview of the entire Blackwater Cove, and is able to observe strangers and visitors of his town. His most trusted advisor is Fleet Master Seahorn, with whom he often shares company. He asks for help from Archmage Ansirem Runeweaver in Dalaran while researching the Stone of Tides. The Baron also sends a new fuel regulator to aid the Goblins at the Mirage Raceway.

The goblin is mounted on top of a large, steampowered contraption that resembles a metal suit with whirling buzzsaws in place of hands. He wears extremely gaudy clothes, adorned with all manner of jewelry. As the contraption’s engine runs, it makes the goblin bounce up and down, seemingly out of control, causing his jewelry to rattle and clink in ridiculous fashion. Extremely cautious in battle, Baron Revilgaz prefers to fight only when he holds a clear advantage. Unafraid to flee when a situation favors his enemies, Revilgaz’s first priority is always to preserve his own life. His shredder suit is custom-built to provide enough armor and weaponry to allow him to fight toe-to-toe with heavily armored warriors, although he will avoid doing so if at all possible.
When engaged in combat, Revilgaz’s first action is always to call for his bodyguards — a trio of disguised Blackwater Raiders who usually lurk nearby. Fully aware of the dangers of fighting spellcasters, Revilgaz then tries to hurl bombs at any obvious wizards and sorcerers before engaging other targets in melee combat. If possible, he maneuvers his shredder to the sides of his enemies and attempts to flank them, taking full advantage of his ability to deliver sneak attacks. If overmatched, he ejects from his shredder and flees on foot, only stopping to fight with his enchanted short sword as a last resort.
He starts the following quests:
