Around Azeroth: A harvest of corpses

"This John Doe died a while back when I was still raiding normal Siege of Orgrimmar," writes submitter Shadanah of The Wolves of War on Hyjal (US-H). "I came home to find this skeleton on my farm. The dog on the farm is harmless, and Yoon had moved to the marketplace by then, so I can only assume they dismounted in midflight ... or were treacherously pushed from their mount." Sounds like a mystery for the Azerothian Hardy Boys!

Around Azeroth: Be it ever so humble

Submitter Arugadh of The Brotherhood of Iron on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A) knows the way to my heart, and it's through screenshots of interior decorating. "While trying out the worgen race and starting area for the first time (yeah, I'm slow that way), the wonderful attention-to-detail of the whole Gilneas area kept catching my eye," she writes. "I mean, my little worgen hunter got all melancholy about having to force a little old grandmother to leave her home. And while your eye and attention is drawn to the monster fish above the hearth and wondering how a sweet little old lady managed to wrangle such a huge monster, you might miss the little rubber duckie floating the trough in the corner. And the map of the whole starting area hanging above it. And the fact that one of the bottles on the hearth is from the speed barge in Thousand Needles, suggesting the dear little old granny isn't as sweet or mild as one wants to think."

Around Azeroth: Turn up the Eagles, the neighbors are listening

I never got to see one of those infamous '70s rock laser light shows before I got a job that required drug testing, but I'm guessing this screenshot is a pretty good approximation. "So I was taking a few of my fellow guild mates on a guided tour/mount run through Tempest Keep when we ran into Kael'thelas," writes submitter Lindrine of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "He took exception to my tour guide ambitions and proceeded to follow me around the room in a haze of pink and purple glowy power."

Around Azeroth: Little luxuries

"For all the complaining and griping and moaning that those goblins and gnomes do on the speed barge in Thousand Needles, their racing operation getting blown to smithereens doesn't seem to have affected their class of living much," writes submitter Arugadh of The Brotherhood of Iron on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "I mean, even as the barge was getting attacked by pirates, this goblin put on a show of cowering in the corner as the flames raged outside. But he still had a nice, hot, comfortable bath drawn, complete with pillows and herbal soaps."

Around Azeroth: A delightful distraction

Aaaah, look at the adorable pugs, all dressed up and out on a date! See how she nuzzles his neck with her soft jiggly-wiggly velvet face! Surely there could be nothing sinister in such a display, could there? Of course not. That feeling of a rogue behind you about to steal your gold before sliding a knife between your ribs is just a paranoid delusion. Just keep looking at the puppies and no one has to get hurt ... more than necessary, that is. (Thanks to submitters Zendara and Scourgehoof of Assume the Position on Zul'jin [US-H] for the screenshot!)

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?
