Protected by mountains on three sides, Lost Rigger Cove is the hideout of the Southsea Pirates on the coast of Tanaris. Agents of the Steamwheedle Cartel constantly attempt to disrupt the pirates' shipbuilding operations here. Killing Southsea Pirates will earn reputation with Gadgetzan.
The area is loaded with humanoids, bearing human male, human female, male goblin, male and female trolls, and male gnoll models. Outside, there are camps and random mobs scattered about, easy enough for single pulls. But nearing the dock, there are houses with mobs packed tightly together. Consider bringing a friend or being heavily specialized in your pet to handle multiple mobs and possibly adds.
