Gallywix?

Hero and Skin Suggestions
I think we need at least 1 more goblin in HotS. It would be cool to have the leader of the Horde goblins and the Bilgewater Cartel alongside the Boss of Ratchet.
We certainly need more goblins, I'm just not sure how Gallywix would be a good option. Don't get me wrong, he is a very fun character but I don't have any idea of how could he battle lol
Goblins have mainly 4 archetypes: the tinker (took by Gazlowe), the merchant (Gallywix), the Pirate (Baron Revilgaz) and the Alchemist (WC3). There is also Rheastrasza, a red dragon that used to take goblinic form before Deathwing killed her, but I don't see her coming.
The merchant archetype would probably be one of that strange heroes only HoTS can have but I can't think of anything actually funny to be done with it, can you?? Would love to read your ideas about him :)

Either him or Hobart Grapplehammer but Gallywix would probably be a tank because of the spider mech he rides on in WoW. I am still pondering on his abilities but I think one of his Heroic's should be:
1) Mecha-Chicken Blast: Throw a Giant Mecha-Chicken at an area on the battleground, dealing 500 damage and stunning enemies.
That is all I got.
What do you think?

You forgot Sapper Goblins, they have alot differences to Tinkers. In my opinion, we would be good with 3 more goblins. Gallywix - Focused on Economy, maybe some exp gain increase, something special sounds good for him. Sapper - I would make this one female goblin because there is no other way of getting one, and having diversity is not bad. And finally Alchemist- Just wc3 type of deal that is support/specialist/multiclass.
Gallywix isn't really a fighter. Sure he does occasionally fight because World of Warcraft is a game about fighting, but for the most part he'd rather sit and count his gold while others risk their necks.

We do need another goblin, and we are still missing the WC3 goblin alchemist. But there aren't many prevalent goblin alchemists so when they do come they will likely be an OC.

I laughed really hard but it makes total sense when we talk about WC goblins in game like HoTS.

In fact, I forgot. But with the addition of Mercenaries Sappers and with Gazlowe, I doubt we'd get them. The Tinker is somewhere between the sapper and the Shredder, I think they'll have gazlowe to kinda fill their roles due amount of possible heroes :(

female goblin because there is no other way of getting one
when speculating heroes that's always a concern I have. It seems the only notable female goblin are Boss Mida and Rhea. While the first would share the role with Gallywix the second is not appealing enough. All I can expect is a chromie skin or something like that :(
Gallywix would be cool. I imagine him being a specialist. Specializing in hiring merc camps, overwhelming the enemy team with them.

I personally think that Mayor Noggenfogger would be the goblin alchemist if we ever get one. I mean, he's the boss of gadgetzan, an alchemist, and had a fairly large role in the rogue order hall campaign. That's pretty much on par with Gazlowe in terms of importance with the only thing Gaz having over him being his friendship with Thrall.

Edit: I actually made a hero concept for Noggenfogger a really long time ago. Here's a link to it.

The main idea is that he heals people, but he charges them for it and uses the money he gains off healing as a resource. Thought it fit well with the capitalism and money grubbing that goes with goblins.

When making this thread, I was going to say that he could be a specialist as well as a tank but I was not sure how at the time. So now, all I have is this:

Trait: The Smell of Dat Cash: !Quest: Gain 1 Bribe every time a friendly minion dies. !Reward: Gain 80 stacks of Bribe. Or:

Trait: Unlimited Profit: Every time a friendly minion dies, gain Moolah. Moolah heals nearby allies and Gallywix for 10% of their maximum health. Gallywix and Co. are healed by money!

Anyway, that's all I got.
I would be glad to get some ideas from you guys as well.
I think Gallywix would be specialist. He would be the best hero to camps. He would have bribe on E, on W some bomb on Q something like a Tychus's E and on one of his ults maybe one for 4 minutes he could birbe boss. What do you think?
