Following Deathwing's destruction of Kezan, the surviving goblins of the Bilgewater Cartel flee on Jastor Gallywix's Yacht. They wash up on the Lost Isles after being attacked unprovoked by an Alliance battleship. The player, Sassy Hardwrench, and Jastor Gallywix lead the survivors once on shore. The orc ship, Draka's Fury was shipwrecked as well. Losing their "cargo" to the Alliance, Aggra, the acting captain of the shipwrecked crew of the Draka's Fury, sends the goblins to recover the cargo, who is none other than Thrall himself. After humbling the greedy Gallywix and killing his cronies to ensure his cooperation, the goblins accompany Thrall back to Kalimdor, where the goblins begin constructing their new home in Azshara and swear allegiance to the Horde.
A race of intelligent monkeys mines Kaja'mite somewhere on the Isles. Some of the monkeys seem to be enslaved by mysterious pygmies.
The wildlife of the Lost Isles seem somewhat prehistoric, because of the fact that never-seen species of raptors, dinosaurs and dodo-like creatures will inhabit these long-forgotten lands. The raptors and dinosaurs seem to have unique new models, shown on Blizzard-made concept art. The Isles are covered with exotic forests, bamboo and a new species of palm trees.
