Around Azeroth: Loves me like a rock

Ah, crap. My bad, guys. I honestly thought I'd clicked off the Odd Polished Stone buff before the boss fight. Okay, we can salvage this. Does anyone have an empty plot in their garrison and really want a souvenir of this victory? I figure we can get a couple of warriors to chip away at this thing like a pinata until we can reach our loot. It should only take a couple of months. Oh, come on, a /gkick? That's a little excessive. Everybody makes mistakes. (Thanks to submitter Corvinna of alea iacta est dignitas on Earthen Ring (US-H) for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: Peace on Draenor and good will towards birds

Submitter Aibelle of BloodOath on Ravencrest (US-A) noticed that her Pepe was getting lonely in her garrison. Also, she was becoming a little tired of constantly cleaning bird mess out of her hairdo. So she was rather pleased when she built her new stables and noticed Sky'reen had taken up residence. Now Pepe has another avian friend, and Aibelle can explore coiffure options beyond "basic night elf ponytail."

Around Azeroth: And that's why you don't play around in a lumber mill

"Apparently Phylarch the Evergreen didn't have to be worried about 'inhumane' wood processing techniques," writes today's anonymous submitter. "Why, humans can safely sit on top of a circular saw with no ill effects! Trees, on the other hand ..." I think I saw a video about someone who tried this on the first day of middle school shop class. It didn't end well for that kid.

Around Azeroth: Visit Ye Olde Orgimmar

"So I was doing my daily quest to get my Stolen Present in hopes I would get this year's version of the dagger," writes submitter Magoi of Clan Plaid on Staghelm (US-H). "Being a rogue in need of a main hand upgrade has been my motivation. No luck yet. However I did get a Scroll of Storytelling and thought I would try to take a old-timey photo of Orgrimmar. Turns out it looks like something my character's grandfather might have taken many, many years ago. Hope you enjoy and happy holidays to everyone there!"

Around Azeroth: Decorating with dragons

Today's submitter writes, "Professor Excaliblur from Magtheridon (EU-A) loves to mess with arcane forces -- shape shifting, matter entanglement and such -- and often lets the brainstorming blow his mind. Some call him insane. He says he's an artist. So why not make a time-frozen dragon do a very odd limbo dance move trying to eat a wreath ribbon? He quickly found a suitable dragon by rummaging through the portal space. (Unbelievable what stuff mages are dumping there.)"

Around Azeroth: Because I'm tacky

"Because you can find garrison resources most anywhere, I spend a lot of time poking around in all the buildings," writes submitter Gimmlette of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "(Yes, I know about the maps you can get, but that kind of takes the fun out of 'Oooh. What's in here?') I was questing in Pinchwhistle Point and ran up into the main building. To quote George Takei, 'Oh myyyy.' Complete with door beads, I'm not sure if this is an homage to the 1960s or just bad taste. It does need the addition of a lava lamp and mirror tile to be complete, but this makes me thankful for dwarven decorating tastes."

Around Azeroth: Stray cat blues

"So if you were smart enough to have chosen the Smuggler's Inn for your outpost in Spires of Arak, one of the things that you can buy from Honest Jim is a little toy that turns you into a growling, hissing, supposedly-civilized kitty cat, WoD-style," writes submitter Arugadh of The Brotherhood of Iron on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "However, the toy doesn't exactly play nice in the litter box with the other toys, as I found out when I used it while having my Blazing Wings activated. So now I've got fire shooting out from my head and giving me a severe case of heartburn. Which is normal for a dwarf paladin, I admit, but not like this!"

Around Azeroth: A stellar performance

"The priest spell Ascension, which comes from a rare drop named Codex of Ascension in Ashran, is the most fun I've had with my priest in a while," writes submitter Chelley of Nurfed on Tichondrius (US-H). "It allows you to fly, which, makes for some pretty sweet escapes ... and views. Side note: I think I spotted a nice spot to hide these ten thousand broken bones filling up my bags."

Around Azeroth: One bloomin' blossom

"We realize you posted a photo of the core hound mounts already, but how about a circle of core hounds?" asks submitted Gimmlette. "Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A) took a bunch of guildies into Molten Core and got them mounts. They all went to my garrison afterward to pick them up and decided the fountain needed a steam bath. (Thanks for nothing, Blizzard, for moving the outhouses outside the walls. Grumble.) There's been a lot of complaining about how you can't fly in Draenor but, personally, I don't mind it, except when I want to stand on top of my fountain to get a circle of guild members on core hounds."

Around Azeroth: Nice work if you can get it

"I was trying to decide what to demolish to make way for my new Dwarven Bunker," writes submitter Marconin of Convert to Raid Mobus on Aerie Peak (US-A). "Stables or the Barracks? I'd apparently been mulling it over for too long because Mr. Alexston looks to either be asleep or quite cross with me. I've only been discussing it aloud for a few hours. Decisions like this can't be rushed, after all!"
