"While goblins and hobgoblins are slightly below average among the basic foot soldier units, they are quite numerous. They attack with spiked maces."
Goblins are a unit associated with the Barbarian plains faction of Enroth, serving as the faction's first tier unit in the video game Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Restoration of Erathia and its expansion packs, Heroes of Might and Magic III: Armageddon's Blade and Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Shadow of Death. They can be recruited in Stronghold towns from the Goblin Barracks, which requires a Fort as a prerequisite. Like other tier one units, Goblins lack special abilities and are good for one thing and one thing only -- bashing opponents, dealing a decent amount of damage and possessing an average speed. They later can be sold to the Freelancer's Guild for some resources.
Goblins can eventually be upgraded into Hobgoblins and their numbers can be increased by 8 per week with the construction of the Mess Hall. They are also directly related to the higher-tiered Wolf Rider and Wolf Raider, though they act as a separate unit.
