An overview of K3.

K3

[40.6, 85.6]

is a neutral goblin base camp located on the southern base of Storm Peaks on the continent of Northrend. The goblins are out to loot the titan machines in the peaks but are having problems with the local wildlife.

Just to the west is Ricket's Folly, where Neutral Dim Flathoof wanders the wreckage.

K3 is also the location for "Honest" Max - an NPC who will give away a free flying mount, to players that are level 77 and have not purchased Cold Weather Flying:

Be careful when attacking enemy players in K3. The Bruisers will attack you as they do in other goblin settlements, however, unlike in Gadgetzan or Booty Bay, the Bruisers are not attackable themselves.

Inspiration

K3 may be inspired by the mountains in Karakoram mountain which includes mountains originally named K1 to K5. K2 is the second-highest mountain on Earth after Mount Everest.

Also a possible reference to "K-3" a mining planet in the movie "Serenity" created by Joss Whedon.

Another likely reference is to the K3 mountain range from the Donkey Kong game series.

Many of the goblin defenses are reminiscent of the game Team Fortress 2 by Valve. These include sentry guns, demolition bombs, sappers (although in this case they are people and not devices), and teleporters.
