Breakfast Topic: What item would you design for WoW?

Flintlocke's Woodchucker
This Breakfast Topic has been brought to you by Seed, the AOL guest writer program that brings your words to WoW Insider's pages.

You have to wonder what a fun job it must be to be the person in charge of creating items in WoW. I mean, for example, you have the new engineering item Flintlocke's Woodchucker as a great example of this. Basically, it's an addon to any bow or gun that shoots "rabid critters" at the target.

I can just imagine the meetings where this was pitched. Comments like "Well, what would it be like to add in a mechanism that would launch rabid animals on top of normal bullets?" must have gotten a laugh around the conference table, but you know coders had fun with programming it. And the fun for this item went all the way to the patch notes, where they stated DHETA had protested, so now the Woodchucker only launches chickens. I was a bit disappointed when they changed that piece. I would have loved to shoot rabid squirrels at my targets, or maybe killer bunnies!

What would you create if you had the ability? Would you make a new gun, mace, or axe to run into battle with? Or would you go with something a bit more cosmetic or lighthearted? What are some of the mechanics you would use? What kind of flavor text would you use?
