Around Azeroth: Midnight blue

"File this under our guild motto, "Hold my drink and watch this," writes submitter Gimmlette. "Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A) ran Siege of Orgrimmar, first wing, to give a few boosted 90's the chance to get gear. After Norushen, one of the tanks, BigBearButt, suggested he run into the next room and use his battle horn. What could possibly go wrong with this idea? Or, as Peter Venkman says, 'I love this plan! I'm excited to be a part of it!' We only wiped out half of the raid the first time. A couple more blasts and we had 98% of the room. There were a couple that stubbornly resisted the call. Rounding them all up created a really cool pattern, almost like Picasso's blue period."

Around Azeroth: Too cool for Westfall

Are giant, square '80s sunglasses the new Azerothian trend? I hope not. Some things don't ever need to be revived. "With the new model updates, I noticed the mercenaries by Mortwake's Tower are looking just too dang cool for their own good," writes submitter Revy of Moon Guard (US-?). "Only they would be able to pull off a look this good."

Around Azeroth: First in, last out

We get more of these every expansion. Submitter Mementh of Earthen Ring (US-H) wanted to be the first one to welcome the Iron Horde to Azeroth, so she camped out at the Dark Portal Monday night, just waiting for the green mist to turn into red. Instead of greeting her in a civilized fashion, they chose to run her through with spears for being part of the traitorous, fake Horde. And she'd cooked them a nice dinner and everything!

Around Azeroth: I read it in the daily mail

"Everyone knows about the poor mail service in Azeroth, what with wages and benefits being reduced and mail carriers on a work-to-rule campaign," writes today's submitter. "Sestertaa, my faithful banking alt on Thunderlord (US-A), therefore didn't have high expectations the other day that her anticipated package had arrived. Much to her surprise, however, some poor sap was in a much worse state from the long wait for his mail to be delivered. Sestertaa is now seriously considering using AAMS (Anytime Anywhere Messenger Service) next time she sends that special package."

Around Azeroth: Are we the baddies?

The gnolls of Azeroth can't wait until Warlords of Draenor is released. Then, finally, maybe Valexion of United and Honored on Blade's Edge (US-A) will stop massacring them for fun. They tried to show Valexion the horrors of his actions by letting their corpses lie in the sun instead of dissolving into nothingness, but he just ignored them and group-looted their bodies. November 13 can't come fast enough.

Around Azeroth: Physical graffiti

"My troll rogue was exploring Shadowmoon Valley in the beta when she came across some odd-looking graffiti on Anguish Fortress," writes beta tester Shaded. "The design on the lower right looked suspiciously like a bird's-eye view of Ghostcrawler holding his infamous nerfbat. That idea scared her even more than the Iron Horde, and she immediately hearthed back to her garrison where she may still be curled up under the command table, sucking her thumb."

Around Azeroth: The short side of nothing

"When you take a lot of screenshots, as I do, you don't always get around to labeling them right away," writes submitter Gimmlette of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "This is a case in point. I have no idea why I was taking a screenshot here. Krasarang Wilds. How nice. Turtle in the distance and boulders, lots and lots of rocks. Maybe it's part of my ongoing 'places I have died' series. When your deaths are over 9200, there are a lot of photos in that album." Since you can't remember, Gimmlette, I'm going to assume that you took this picture for a 'beaches it is uncomfortable to lie on' tourist brochure.

Around Azeroth, Beta Edition: I'll wipe that smirk off my face

Beta tester Croy of ELEMENTS on Sylvanas (EU-A) was messing around with the barbershop options for his draenei premade to try to prepare for the release of Warlords of Draenor. But his test premade was so busy mugging for the camera that Croy wasn't able to do a good facial comparison. Croy was so angry at his character, he auto-ran the draenei off a cliff the first chance he got.

Around Azeroth: Blast off!

After months of being summoned from his peaceful afterlife to sail his prized pirate ship, only to be sunk and killed again within minutes, Dread Captain Genest has finally snapped. This time, when the Dread Ship Vazuvius tilted and prepared to sink into the depths of the sea, Captain Genest activated the rocket boosters that he's spent months commissioning from a team of undead gnomish engineers and flew off into space. See you on Draenor, Captain! (Thanks to submitter Wsooishwooi for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: Pretty as a prayerbook

"I was on my way to the Shrine of the Seven Stars from The Lion's Redoubt, and came across this stunning waterfall near the Pools of Purity," writes submitter Valora of Moonglade (EU-A). "I'm thinking about returning with a prospector's pan in my backpack. There definitely appears to be gold dust in that waterfall!" If my experience as a child at multiple gold mine tourist traps is anything to go by, you'll end up spending ten gold for about one gold worth of dust and an empty vial.

Around Azeroth: The time is now to bring peace to the world

"My guild just hosted our 9th Annual Armistice Day Ball, a cross-faction open RP event where we commemorate the Battle of Mt. Hyjal," writes submitter Derscha Kettlebomb of AAMS Alliance Branch on Cenarion Circle (US-A). "This year, we were very pleased to have our new friends from Sisters of Elune celebrate with us, too. We decided to host it out in Seradane this year for a bit of nostalgia before Warlords of Draenor hits; the very first ball I attended when I was aguild newbie was held at the portal in Duskwood. Pictured here is a screenshot from our big fireworks finale."

Around Azeroth: Is this burning an eternal flame?

"It appears not all Druids of the Flame perished after the sortie we led into the Firelands and the subsequent death of Fandral Staghelm and Ragnaros," writes submitter Wendishe of Decoden on Aszune (EU-H). "Three of them paid a visit to the Shrine of Two Moons eariler in the autumn. Since they didn't start setting fire to things right away they were tolerated, much like goblins (who, after all, have a tendency to blow things up - even when they are on your side.) They didn't say much, just watched the goings-on in the shrine for a bit and then departed."

Around Azeroth: G-g-g-ghost cow!

"While awaiting an audience with Garrosh Hellscream about excavation projects in the Vale and how we proud members of the Shado-Pan will not stand for the desecration of our sacred lands, I encountered something quite peculiar," writes submitter Shenwei of Revolution on Wyrmrest Accord (US-H). "Being a shaman, I am attuned rather well to both the elemental and spiritual planes, and if you look closely at this image of Garrosh giving an up-and-coming adventurer their next assignment, there is a ghostly tauren speaking to him in the background. Is this the beloved former chieftain Cairne Bloodhoof attempting to be an adviser from beyond the grave, or is it someone deciding to play a prank on the Warchief?"

Around Azeroth: Some like it hot and some sweat when the heat is on

Frequent submitter Arugadh of The Brotherhood of Iron on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A) has taken another hit for the team and returned to Gallywix's Pleasure Palace for some screenshots. She doesn't want to be there, she'd rather be pulling weeds on her farm for the four hundredth consecutive day, but duty calls. This time, she's visited his private sauna, which always makes me think of the Simpsons episode where someone tries to kill Homer by locking him in a steam room. Also, is that hookah wrapped around that entire end table?

Around Azeroth: How little we know

"I can be rather obtuse when it comes to seeing things in the game," writes submitter Gimmlette of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "Something that everyone knows is there can be completely missed by me. I was heading over to Karazhan to do my weekly fail run (Seriously Attumen. Just give me the mount and I'll stop killing you once a week.) and I saw something in the tower. Flying in for a closer look, I was astonished to see these gryphons and another portal.

Has this always been here? I wouldn't be surprised if it has. There's so much to look at in the game, but I've been coming to Karazhan every week for over six months and this is the first time I've noticed this. I did not see a wind rider, but the Horde could use this flight path, too. It reminds me of Blackrock Mountain where the entry to Blackwing Descent is on the terrace where the final battle with Nefarian occurs in Blackwing Lair.

Still, we got all excited earlier in the year when it was noted the cobwebs had been removed from Karazhan. Could this be a precursor of something coming? If you want to check it out for yourself, it's about a quarter of the way down the tower from the top. There's not enough room in the space for a stone or a lot of people entering the portal."
