From chat:

2 e Lockbox
He is like a Lockbox that takes 2 BoH energy & Real World Time & spits out *any* currency, consumable and Gem as a prize (so all classes can use his Loot). Sometimes he spits out Level 2 Mobs, other times XP, other times Squire Valor, other times Exlixirs & T5 Gems

Christmas/ Winter Holiday Star
Anyone note people keep getting star shaped gems that improve there health for Winter Holidays / New Year (Tier 5 Health is Star Shaped)?

Route & Time Zone Progression
timing is random to give everyone in the world a chance, but he seems to have a set route. As the days progress, Forest stop will rotate through 24 hours of the day.

is there a minimum encounter rate for the goblin? others have killed it 5 times with 30 energy and i dont even know what he looks like after spending 50. there should be a minimum encounter rate. its pretty frustrating to see others with holiday hats while i havent even seen the goblin yet.

He appears to be just like Alchemist Lock box using 2 BoH energy instead of 5000 Silver Coin. Instead winning Knight Valor, you win a 800 XP monster with every currency, gem and potion in game. Instead of winning 500 Silver Coin, you win Level 4 Mobs in the Forest.

To clarify: spending gold shields on him is like buying Silver Coin with Real World Money, playing Alchemist Lockbox, and trying to get Knight Valor (or Captians Valor in v1.5) something i actually did before my Guild unlocked Cursed Keep. The Metaphor ends there because several super people posted their Alchemist Lockbox results to the forum. I realized from their results I would have to spend $250 USD for the Tier 11 (Tier 12 in v1.5) gear I wanted. I stopped buying Silver Coin and just played Lockbox a couple of times a day.

Impressive bunch of information. Truly. But I find it vain for me actually, as since it's very first appearance, I managed to beat the heck out of him with mere consecutive toxic blade and piercing strike spam without any problem. I'm sure, lower might characters, may find this very wide infobomb useful tho.

Some people do not like the Holiday Goblin of Doom. If you do not like getting squire valor from alchemist lockbox, you will not like HGoD. He is gambling using BoH Energy (or Gold Shields to buy energy).

If you have all Tier 3 Gems, you will probably not improve you character though HGoD.

But he is load of fun if you *like* Silver and Alchemist Lockbox.

His loot is aimed at the same people who use Alchemist Lockbox, with the exception of his Hat. Which is not really good for combat, it is just fun to wear.

Chat excerpt:

War Mage that surprises goblin ("waiting" & still no "Bah" buff), Deep Freeze + Major/ Minor Frost Rune + Icy Grasp (if time) + Frozen Shard (if icy grasp in time) slows him down.

Ice Lance works nice since "Bah" is resist status enchant not 100% resist knock back enchant.
