It came from the Blog Occupy Orgrimmar snapshots
Last Friday, It came from the Blog participated in Occupy Orgrimmar, protesting Garrosh's treatment of the trolls. It was a peaceful protest. After all, we're all still patriots. For the Horde! But we did our part to support the troll community.

All of the trolls met in Sen'jin Village. Then we marched to Razor Hill and onward to Orgrimmar. We went straight to Grommash Hold and sat in Garrosh's chambers for a while. Protesta, my troll, made a speech showing solidarity with our fellow trolls.

It came from the Blog: Midsummer Flamefest 2013 snapshots

It came from the Blog Midsummer Flamefest 2013 snapshots DNP
Last month, It came from the Blog held its annual Flamefest, celebrating the Midsummer Fire Festival. Each year, we pick a continent and flame it. This year, we set the Eastern Kingdoms on fire.

First, we met in Brill, where the statue of the Dark Lady presides over all doings there. Then we went to the ruins of Lordaeron and took the portal to Silvermoon City. We rode through town, out the front gate and over to the fire outside Falconwing Square. After that, we headed to Tranquillien in the Ghostlands to honor the flame there.

We took the flightpath back to the city, ran to the portal, returned to the ruins and then headed to Silverpine Forest. Once there, we traveled to the Sepulcher where we again honored the flame and spun around in circles. Then off to Tarren Mill we went, passing inconspicuous bears as we went.

It came from the Blog: Running of the Orphans 2013 snapshots

It came from the Blog Running of the Orphans 2013 snapshots
Last week, the It came from the Blog family of guilds held its annual Running of the Orphans. As the name suggests, we ran our orphans around, completing the Orgrimmar Children's Week quests.

After we picked up our orphans from the matron, we took the zeppelin from Orgrimmar to Tirisfal Glades. We ran (no mounts, no ports, no summons) to have an audience with Lady Sylvanas in the Undercity. Then we ran back to the zeppelin, making the return trip to Org. Next, since some players did not have the flightpath to Thunder Bluff, we took the zeppelin there (AKA the Love Zeppelin) and ran out to Red Rocks to honor the fallen chieftain. We ran back to town and then took the flightpath right back to Orgrimmar.

It's Children's Week, so it must mean it's time for It came from the Blog's annual Running of the Orphans. As the event name says, we get orphans and we run around with them while completing our orphan quests.
  • When: Friday, May 3 at 10:30 p.m. EDT (7:30 p.m. PDT, 8:30 p.m. server time)

You have to be at least level 10, because you can't get an orphan otherwise. We also will not be forming a raid since we need to complete quests. We will have an event chat set up as usual, however.

The pet you get for completing the quest is bind on account and tradeable, so don't let your not being Horde or Zangarmarsh not being your main server stop you from joining us.

Hope to see you there!

The two things we usually have in our events are drinking and death. You'll need some cash for buying digital drinks, but I'll buy you some, should you run short.

Mounts are not required as much of the travel will be by mage portals. You will need to be level 10 to join the raid group, however.

We will not be holding cross-realm events for the foreseeable future, so you need to be on Zangarmarsh and you need to be Horde. But keeping a character in our guild means you can always join in our monthly events.

We look forward to seeing you at Bar Crawl 2013!

It came from the Blog Join us for Bar Crawl 2013
It's time for this month's It came from the Blog event and we're going to be virtually drinking. Again. This time the excuse is so that we can hit some famous and not-so-famous bars around Azeroth.

We'll begin our journey with Barkeep Morag in Orgrimmar. Here are the details:

  • Where: Meet at the inn in the Valley of Strength, Orgrimmar on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H)
  • Who: Any character level 10 or above
  • How: Just ask any It came from the Blog member if you are not already in our family of guilds.
  • What: Virtual booze, travel, more virtual booze, probably no death -- this time
You should be at least level 10, so that you can join a raid group. You also should have some money for drinking, but I can provide libations for those who are short on cash.

So join us for Bar Crawl 2013! And if you normally play Alliance please create a Horde character and join us anyway. You'll be able to see some places that are new to you and have some fun as well.

Noblegarden 2013 has begun

noblegarden and tauren
This is a friendly neighborhood reminder from your local WoW Insider team that Noblegarden 2013 is underway. In fact it began yesterday, March 31st, and will run through the week until April 6th. This year looks to be pretty much the same as the last and there are no new updates to speak of, so if you've done it before, there's probably not a lot of incentive to do it again. However, a number of Noblegarden achievements are necessary for What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been, so if you're still working on your Violet Protodrake, don't miss out! In addition, battle pet collectors might be interested in the Spring Rabbit, if you haven't gotten it yet.

For those of you who are working on Nobelgarden achievements or items, WoW Insider's got you covered with our OverAchiever guide. Check it out, and happy spring!

Reminder: It came from the Blog's scavenger hunt is tomorrow

Reminder It came from the Blog's scavenger hunt is tomorrow
It came from the Blog is having another scavenger hunt and you're all invited.
  • When: Tomorrow, March 30 at noon EDT (9 a.m. PDT, 10 a.m. server time)
  • Where: Meet at the fountain in the Court of the Sun in Silvermoon City on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H)
  • Who: Any Horde player, but you'll have a better chance of winning if you have a mount
  • How: Just ask Tizzi or any It came from the Blog member if you aren't already in our family of guilds
There will be 10 winners. The prize for each winner will be a choice of battle pets, some donated by guildies and some extras from my collection. All you have to do is complete the scavenger hunt and show the items in a trade window to me (Tizzi). The hunt will take place in a non-flying area, so only those with ground mounts will be at an advantage.

You will need 25g (which will be provided to those that are new to the server and poor) and 37 spaces in your bags. (The list is a bit longer than usual to make it more challenging.) The items will be listed in /say at the event time, so that punctual players have an advantage. I will then repeat the list 15 minutes later in event chat.

So come have some fun and maybe win a valuable battle pet. And remember, since battle pets are account-wide, you don't have to have your main on Zangarmarsh or even in the Horde in order to enjoy them.

Please join us on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H) in It came from the Blog. All guild ranks can invite, so /whisper Tizzi or any online member. You are all welcome as long as you play by our simple rules -- basically, don't be a funsucker! Visit the guild FAQ for more details.

The OverAchiever: Guide to Noblegarden 2013

Every Thursday, The Overachiever shows you how to work toward those sweet achievement points. This week, bunnies take over the world.

Time to get sick on candy again, folks! That seems to be a running theme with WoW holidays.

Noblegarden will run this year from Monday, April 1 until Monday, April 8. As always, check your server's in-game calendar for the exact start and stop times. If you've never done Noblegarden before, or only done its pre-2009 version, be aware that Noble Gardener (the holiday's meta) is part of the year-long What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been achievement.

Last year, the Swift Springstrider was added to holiday vendors at the fairly steep cost of 500 Noblegarden chocolate. This year, we haven't seen anything new datamined, but Noblegarden did hit the patch 5.2 PTR in mid-February, so you never know.

It came from the Blog Join us for a scavenger hunt
I have quite a few battle pets burning a hole in my pocket, so it's time for another scavenger hunt.
  • When: Saturday, March 30 at noon EDT (9 a.m. PDT, 10 a.m. server time)
  • Where: Meet the fountain in the Court of the Sun in Silvermoon City on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H)
  • Who: Any horde player
  • How: Just ask Tizzi or any member of It came from the Blog for an invite
Some of the companions have been donated by guildies and others are extras I have from holidays. The great thing about battle pets is that everyone who joins us will still be able to use their prizes on their home servers.

The contest will be held in zones that don't allow flying, but you'll have a better chance of winning if you have a mount. That having been said, I have many pets to give away, so there will be many winners.

The hunt list will be provided in /say when the event begins, so that only those who are punctual will be able to see it. It will be given again 15 minutes later in event chat.

These hunts are always fun so please join us!

Reminder: It came from the Blog's Love-in is tomorrow

Reminder It came from the Blog's Lovein is tomorrow
This is a call to action! It came from the Blog is staging a peaceful protest tomorrow. We want booze sold in the Undercity, and we want it now! We'll be starting at the top, and then moving our protest from there.

Because love is in the air, our form of protest will be a Love-in. So it will not only be peaceful, it will be groovy.
  • When: Tomorrow, Saturday, Feb. 16 at Noon EST (9 a.m. PST, 10 a.m. server time)
  • Where: Meet in front of Grommash Hold in Orgrimmar on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H)
  • Who: Any Horde player level 10 or above
  • How: Ask Tizzi or any It came from the Blog member for an invite, if you aren't already in our family of guilds
If you are joining us (and all are welcome), please wear something alluring, bring something alcoholic and behave something groovy, man.

Alliance are encouraged to protest with us! Just roll a Horde character (10 or above) and show us how it's done. After all, your dwarves would never allow a dry city in your faction. Or wait, does the Exodar sell libations? They're so full of light and boringness there -- which is why it should be a disco.

Anyway, join us for peace, love and virtual drinking tomorrow!
