Around Azeroth: Shut the door, have a seat

"It would seem with the merging of the Alliance, Horde, and neutral auction houses, coupled with all the new items to be sold with the release of Warlords of Draenor, that Auctioneer Hesse (of Stormwind's Dwarven District auction house) is getting a little tired with his increased workload -- so much so that's he's sitting down," writes submitter Enishi of Darkwind on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "This is likely the first time the worgen has taken a seat since starting work here during the Cataclysm. He was still doing his job, but no word if any of his managers have approved the action. Watchful eyes are looking to see if this behavior catches on with the other forever-standing vendors, craftsmen, guards, and others in the city."

Around Azeroth: Like the deserts miss the rain

Submitter Pantheor of Maximum Pwnage on Earthen Ring (US-H) is experiencing some early-onset nostalgia. Upon seeing a takeout container full of his favorite Pandarian noodles in Warspear, he was suddenly struck by a longing to visit the lands of the recent past, if only for dinner. But he couldn't wait for his hearthstone to come of of cooldown. He needed it now. The sight of a haughty blood elf paladin scarfing up someone's discarded takeout like a stray dog significantly raised the morale of everyone else in the area.

Around Azeroth: Lost in the fog

"Here we see the rare and exotic Red Flying Cloud eating hay in the stables," writes submitter Webskull of Knights of Deaths Solace on Darkspear (US-A). "Very few are seen actually eating at this time of day. We shouldn't try to mount it; it may become provoked." Yeah, you wouldn't want to upset that mount. It might just turn into a liquid or, God forbid, a solid. Just think of how ridiculous you'd look riding around on something that isn't a weightless cloud of vapor!

Around Azeroth: This might be easier than we thought

"Fedjeen, worgen-at-large on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A), is pleased to report that the Iron Horde doesn't stand a chance," writes today's submitter. "Fed managed to stealth right up next to their warchief, who never even noticed he was there. And Ner'zhul can't even figure out which end of his staff is which. Nah, we got nothing to worry about." Is Ner'zhul picking his nose with his staff? That looks seriously unpleasant.

Around Azeroth: I want my hat back

"My hat is gone," Nat Pagle complained. "I want it back." After asking several residents of varying stupidity about the location of his hat, he eventually went up to submitter Gwenevere of Shadow Stalkers on Trollbane (US-A). "What does it look like?" she asked. "It is brown and scaly and ..." he replied, pausing for a moment as realization dawned. "I HAVE SEEN MY HAT. You. You stole my hat." Violence ensued. When Gwenevere finished her corpse run, she found Nat happily wearing her Hightfish Cap and murmuring "I love my hat."

Around Azeroth: If you believe they put a man on the moon

Or a moon on the man, because it looks like submitter Thundarius of Nagrand (US-A) is about to be crushed by the Pale Lady. "I have seen the moon in Shadowmoon many times (editor's note: thus the name, I assume), but I could not explain what was happening here. I had to sit and think for a while. Is it an eclipse? Is is some sort of lunar event? Will we ever set foot on the moon? What lives on the moon? What sort of loot do they drop?" If the latest Borderlands has taught me anything, the answer is laser weapons!

Around Azeroth: The simple joy of tormenting cats

"Who's a good kitteh?" asks submitter Riyahnasheed of The Evil League of Evil on Zul'jin (US-A). "You're a good kitteh! While finishing up quest lines in Spires of Arak, I found a quest that proves Blizzard has its share of cat aficionados. The Strange Crystal Shard is one of the most entertaining items I have had dropped in my bags. The only thing missing was a saberon butt-wiggle as she got ready to pounce on my impromptu laser pointer."

Around Azeroth: And that goes for your mother, too!

"Okay, this is actually in Gorgorond, between High Pass and East Watch," writes today's submitter. "I was cruising on Ttuul, my shammy, and saw these two brutes hammering it out with no one making any real progress and thought they deserved some attention. They are Sor the Eradicator and Beremus the Overgrowth, level 92 elites. There's gotta be a story there I haven't encountered yet."

Around Azeroth: The NIOSH report is forthcoming

"Keegan Firebeard did not think things through while stabling my mounts in the garrison," writes submitter Amrasillias of BiS on Eonar (EU-A). "Ten out of ten firemen would not recommend putting a Flameward Hippogryph next to a single stack of hay, let alone two stacks of hay. Long story short: I had to rebuild my garrison. Firebeard is fired, of course." (For the 99% of you who don't read the NIOSH fire fatality reports, you're welcome to check them out here.)

Around Azeroth: Silence knows, can't drown a heart

"I discovered some hidden resources in the lake at my garrison," writes submitter Rann of Earthen Ring (US-A). "As I swam back up, I was struck by how beautiful the night is in Shadowmoon Valley. Enjoy!" I suppose this is the upside to having a garrison that isn't permanently frozen over. You can go diving for resources and stare blankly at the night sky without worrying about hypothermia setting in within five minutes.
