Gregg 'Groggy' Herring is the founder of the Deep Sea Fishing hub. He has several nicknames, such as tamer of the snores (formerly tamer of the shores), Gregg the Bald (formerly Greg the Bold), 'Port'-master (formerly Portsmaster) and Herring the Hungover (formerly Herring the Heroic).

He once fell in love with a Siren who did not return his feelings, seeing him only as a friend. She gifted him a ring, but in a rage, Gregg threw it into the sea. The siren then left and they never saw each other again.

Gregg turned to alcohol in his depression, regretting his actions and wanting the ring back more than anything. The player later finds the ring while fishing at the Deep Sea Fishing Hub and returns it to Gregg, who is overjoyed. The player hopes that Gregg can drink less now, but he responds by saying that he is already too deep in his alcoholism, although he states that he will now drink to happy times instead of sad times.

Returning Gregg's ring completes the My Precious! achievement.

He can be found on the east platform up in a crow's nest just west of the Fish Flingers Fisherman next to the D&D icon D&D map icon.png. Click on 'Bang Ladder' to the south in order to talk to him.

  • patch 12 March 2018 (Update):
    • A 'Bang' option has been added to the ladders near the NPC Greg 'Groggy' Herring in the Deep Sea Fishing hub so that players can interact with him in Java.
      • Prior to this, player using Java were unable to hand in his ring, preventing them from completing the achievement.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • He drunkenly quotes O Captain! My Captain!, an 1865 poem by Walt Whitman.
  • He sometimes drunkenly yells SEAGULLS! Shtop it now!, a reference to a bad lip reading Star Wars song by the same name.
