Aug 24th 2010 8:56AM This one isn't quite a prank, as the guy who did it was just a clueless player, but I used to raid with a particularly bad hunter. So bad we never trusted him to misdirect if another hunter was around. First time we had a 25 man raid where he was invited but no other hunters were online, he was told to misdirect the main tank and pull sartharion.
The next thing we knew, vent was collapsing laughing as a hunter performed the ancient art of Melee Misdirection.
Aug 24th 2010 8:20AM Warlock summon portals can be opened right at the edge of a cliff. A flight form druid can then begin a summon while in flight form, and someone at the edge can assist it. Places this work include the edge of the naxx platform, anywhere near ulduar or icecrown citadel.
When they first gave us the new ritual of summoning, the summoning channel bubble would spawn in front, instead of on top of the player. This meant you could summon someone into the cages found around naxxramas. Mages can blink out - other than that, it's hearthstone time. Doing this to goldseller accounts (back when they used to have a monopoly on eternal fire) and summoning them into the cages in necropolises floating over zul'drak was fairly amusing.
Oh, and you can still do the death-summon thing off the violet citadel in dalaran.
Aug 12th 2010 1:29AM Talenting to play like a TF2 spy? Not very balanced. A talent called "FYI I am a spy"? We need one. Druids get Om Nom Nom, rogues need a talented pop culture reference to balance the energy-using classes again.
Aug 4th 2010 8:39AM Get a Super Simian Sphere trinket (RNG, as it's a BoP drop from 80 instance mobs) which transforms you into a white ape in a antimagic zone looking purple bubble.
That's cool, but you can:
1) Use it, then use an iron boot flask. Bubbledwarf. Because the iron dwarf is a scaled up dwarf model, the bubble scales up with you. I've yet to test it with dartol's rod.
2) Use it in druid flight forms and fly around anywhere as an ape
3) For non-druids, go to dalaran and use underbelly elixirs (Yes! Some people don't know THEY exist either) until you get the wasp transformation, then use your simian sphere. You're now a flying ape in a bubble, in dalaran. It works in the sewers, krasus landing, and for alliance, the tower with emblem vendors. You can fly from the sewer exit to the tower window before you get dismounted. I assume it'd work if you could get over the well, too, or any other place people can sit on flying mounts around dalaran.
I've also recently picked up the Ectoplasmic Distiller. It's an item from the D1 upgrade quests, and it drops a large alchemical-looking device with a pulsing blue aura the size of most AOEs. It's a 1 minute cooldown, 5 minute duration item. As long as you have goblin rocket fuels, you can keep dropping them every minute. It gets a lot of WTFs.
Finally, I have a circle of flame from blackrock depths. Being able to pull off a flaming Evocation is quite fun.
