Around Azeroth: Pork and beans

"This mob says it's 'Embodied Despair,'" writes submitter Gimmlette. "Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A) says that's not the embodiment of despair. We heard that, due to a virus affecting pigs, bacon prices were expected to soar another 15 to 20 percent. The average cost of a pound of bacon in the US is over $5.00. Now that's despair. The guild mascot, Mr. Wiggles, probably doesn't have anything to worry about. Given all the places we've taken him, his bacon might be, well, certainly not applewood-smoked. And besides, who could do anything to such a sweet face? Even if it's kind of creepy that he just stands there watching."

Around Azeroth: Ain't too proud to beg

"The weekly clear of the trash before Sha in Siege of Orgrimmar results in lots of mobs stacked up and burned," writes submitter Wumper of Carpe Jugulum on Saurfang (US-A). "We're not sure, but we are guessing that the Sha of Pride may have a crush on one of our healers. He left us a O-Hearts message with his little adds. Any suggestions on how we let him down gently?"

Around Azeroth: Abandon all hope ye who enter here

Submitter Auntie Ed of Off the Air on Madoran (US-H) isn't afraid of the "swirly skull of doom" that haunts the entrance to heroic dungeons. But when his (her? its?) staff caught the angle just right, giving the skull one floating, off-center eye, he felt a bit of a chill. Now if only there was a warlock around to summon an Eye of Kilrogg, then we could finally give Heroic Skull back his sight! Ha ha, just kidding. No one actually remembers that Eye of Kilrogg exists.

Around Azeroth: Orange is the new Stylish Black Shirt

"According to the patch notes from April 1, 'For safety, all hunters must now wear bright orange vests at all times,'" writes submitter Gimlette. "Absolutely. Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A) decided we'd better follow the patch notes. We started forming up for Tortos and we made sure our hunters had their safety vests."

Around Azeroth: Greyscale

It's pretty fitting that a discipline priest can find balance in the light and the dark, isn't it? Submitter Sarieen of Ronae Before on Argent Dawn (EU-H) will commit to neither the shadow nor the holy paths, but instead navigates the spaces in between. Or maybe she's just super into shielding and smiting things. Someone's got to be the healer, right?

Around Azeroth: Next season on Game of Thrones!

Let me tell you a story, adventurer. This is the tale of an age long past, when the pandaren were forced to worship the larger, levitating pandaren. Someone was carrying around a red ball. There was also the ghost of a dead saurok, and a statue of a dragon, I guess. And ... all the larger pandaren were doing the YMCA dance? None of this makes any sense! Assistant Lorewalker Martin! This story is incredibly long and confusing. When will you have the next tale prepared? Six years, you say? Adventurer, do you still have that blackjack you used on those Lazy Peons so many years ago? I have a new quest for you. (Thanks to Qaeto of Trollbane [US-A] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: The player versus the patch

"And so it came down to this," writes submitter Solánge of The One Fellowship on Moon Guard (US-A). "Her companions lay dead in the puddles of black ooze around the room. The hulking creature that had been Crafty the Ambitious bellowed as it bore down on her, it's body dripping in the dark essence of an Old God. Solánge threw her axe aside. Something more was needed. She reached back and drew out Sulfuras. And then Blizzard released the 6.0 patch notes with their paladin nerfs, which promptly danced on her freshly maimed corpse."

Around Azeroth: She's a modern woman

In a world full of people wearing robes, cloaks, horned cowls, and anything and everything covered in spikes, it's surprising to see someone dressed like an actual human being. Assuming that one counts the Real Housewives of Anywhere as human beings. I admire her bold choice in sunglasses, but even Kim Kardashian wouldn't hire two camels to accompany her everywhere she goes. And going barefoot is only appropriate on the beach. Or if you're me, who only owns a pair of steel-toed work boots and sandals, and thus got married wearing no shoes at all. (Thanks to submitter Yseora of Fights Like a Girl on Blackwater Raiders [US-A] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: Tea and sympathy

Submitter Nounours of GrandGalacticInquisitor on Llane (US-A) recently welcomed her old friend Regors back to the game. And what better way to welcome someone back to their virtual wonderland? We've got the blond-haired innocent maiden, the dark and feral Mad Hatter, various psychotropic mushrooms and caterpillars, and one lone virmin that looks like he's waiting for someone to drop a biscuit so he can devour it.

Around Azeroth: Your creepy uncle

The standards for child adoption in Azeroth are still disturbingly low, I see. Submitter Randomlock of Randomnoobs and Friends on Tichondrius (US-H) somehow managed to obtain guardianship of this Argent Gruntling, which he thoughtfully named I Farm Gold. Rather than put I Farm Gold in any sort of school or apprenticeship, Randomlock has decided that the best education is for the child to sit in front of the auction house while he shows off his own unique transmog set, consisting of a horned helmet, a legendary cape, and a loincloth. Appropriate!
