Gogh
Gogh in combat alongside his storm atronach summon

Gogh is a goblin hunter from Cyrodiil and an apparent champion of Hircine who has been sentenced to death for discovering the truth about his tribe's new leader, the supposed Blue God, posing as an aspect of Malacath through the use of blue dye. He can be found inside Gromm's Pass where he is battling for his life in a fighting pit. If the Blue God is slain and Gogh is freed from the pit, Gogh can be recruited as a follower.

His appearance can be altered through dialogue, and he wields the Spear of Bitter Mercy, a Daedric artifact which summons a storm atronach. The spear cannot be taken from him, and is only usable if equipped via console commands. The armor options available are: no armor; leather or iron armor; and/or no helmet, a helmet of leather or iron, or a skull mask. These options can vary Gogh's damage resist statistic from 14 with no armor to 35 with iron armor and the skull mask. The latter option represents only a 3% reduction in actual damage suffered; this is not significant given that he is essential.

Gogh cannot be ordered to stay at one of your houses. Instead, he will return to the throne area within Gromm's Pass when he leaves your service as a follower.

Dialogue[edit]

You can ask Gogh various questions, but will be unable to understand him as he will only respond with snorting and grunts.

When you first meet him:

Are you all right?
Did you kill all these goblins?
I take it you realized that orc wasn't a god.
Wait, why am I talking to a goblin?
Do you think you'd want to follow me?
You can handle yourself in a fight. I could use someone like you.
You seem friendly, but so does a bear until it's chewing your face off.
I've always wanted a goblin for a friend. What do you say?
All right then, let's go.

After recruiting him:

I want to talk about your spear.
Where did you find it?
Can I try it out?
Does it have any special abilities?
Does your spear have a name?
I don't understand.
This is a waste of time.
I'm not sure why I expected an actual answer.
That's interesting. Well, good talk.
I wonder if they teach goblin at the Bard's College.

If you asked if you could try out the spear, you can respond with:

I'm guessing that's a "No."

Asking to trade things will prompt him to give you a a Skull or Troll Skull, but you cannot give him anything. How you choose to respond to the gift is up to you.

Notes[edit]

  • Gogh functions similarly to the Riekling Warrior follower. Like Rieklings, dogs, and Steadfast Dwarven automatons, he takes up the pet slot as a helper in combat.
  • He is the only goblin that uses a weapon.
  • If Gogh is brought home to your family, your children will sometimes ask if he's your pet and comment on how scary he is.
