Around Azeroth: Remembrance of things past

"I started playing WoW at the end of vanilla, when Burning Crusade was three months from arriving," writes submitter Gimmlette of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "It was a while before I got to experience Molten Core, and when I did, my guild and I didn't need 40 people with specifically assigned roles. There are still memories, though, of getting punted by Baron Geddon and needing to get people high enough rep to have Aqua Quintessence to put out the runes. (I worked hard to get mine. It's something I still have and won't ever delete.) I caught this shot of all the sparkles around Garr as the LFR group we were in worked to contain the adds and down both them and him. For all the complaints about running this in LFR mode, it's been a fun walk down memory lane."

Around Azeroth: We drink alone, with nobody else

"So after finally recruiting Fargo Flintlocke to my garrison, I've taken to having him patrol with me as I run around doing all the daily duties that a good commander does -- y'know, try to influence him by example, that sort of thing," writes submitter Arugadh of The Brotherhood of Iron on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "But yesterday, he wasn't out in the open hanging around the Pleasure-bot as he usually is. I found him in the Inn, sitting at a feast-loaded table with one of the lumberjacks and Admiral Taylor. Admiral Taylor looked decidedly miffed at being there. Which leads me to wonder if Flintlocke was at Taylor's Garrison before it got run over ... and what the true circumstances of Taylor's demise are. Knowing Dave Fargo, there's a story there that'll be the source of a hysterical cutscene at some point as yet unrevealed."

Around Azeroth: Something to talk about

"In scenic Elodor, before the Altar of Sha'tar, both neutral groups and Alliance organizations convene to plan the downfall of the Iron Horde and the safekeeping of Draenor," writes submitter Ironholde of The Dwarven Vanguard on Moon Guard (US–A). "Ironically, few draenei seemed interested in participating. No wonder they were obliterated in our timeline."

Around Azeroth: Give me that old time religion

"While I may not be a young tater tot of a gnome anymore, I still like visiting Greatfather Winter," writes submitter Perki of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "Especially for an old timey-wimey photo op!" Greatfather Winter has the same look on his face that mall Santas do when they have stoned teenagers trying to sit in their laps. Maybe the energy spikes from the legendary cape are hurting him?

Around Azeroth: I knew we forgot something

"These socks are so cool!" exclaimed guildmistress Gimmlette of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A), upon receiving her present from Greatfather Winter. "We need a guild photo with our socks. Meet me in Ironforge by the tree in the Explorer's Hall. Wear your sweater and your socks."

Five minutes later, Gimmlette deeply regretted not including pants in that order. But they went ahead and entertained bystanders anyway.

Around Azeroth: What's mine is mine

"Having a good day, collecting garrison resources," writes submitter Tomez of Whisperwind (US-A). "Having a good day, collecting herbs. Having a good day, collecting ore -- oh my God. Huh. How did this happen? What the heck did the miners do to my level 3 mine? This is not what was in the blueprint!" Sneaky little thieves, those miners. It''s those damn Molly Maguires again! Someone call in the Pinkertons. We'll have your mine back in a jiffy, boyo.

Around Azeroth: Peace on Draenor and good will towards birds

Submitter Aibelle of BloodOath on Ravencrest (US-A) noticed that her Pepe was getting lonely in her garrison. Also, she was becoming a little tired of constantly cleaning bird mess out of her hairdo. So she was rather pleased when she built her new stables and noticed Sky'reen had taken up residence. Now Pepe has another avian friend, and Aibelle can explore coiffure options beyond "basic night elf ponytail."

Around Azeroth: And that's why you don't play around in a lumber mill

"Apparently Phylarch the Evergreen didn't have to be worried about 'inhumane' wood processing techniques," writes today's anonymous submitter. "Why, humans can safely sit on top of a circular saw with no ill effects! Trees, on the other hand ..." I think I saw a video about someone who tried this on the first day of middle school shop class. It didn't end well for that kid.

Around Azeroth: Visit Ye Olde Orgimmar

"So I was doing my daily quest to get my Stolen Present in hopes I would get this year's version of the dagger," writes submitter Magoi of Clan Plaid on Staghelm (US-H). "Being a rogue in need of a main hand upgrade has been my motivation. No luck yet. However I did get a Scroll of Storytelling and thought I would try to take a old-timey photo of Orgrimmar. Turns out it looks like something my character's grandfather might have taken many, many years ago. Hope you enjoy and happy holidays to everyone there!"

Around Azeroth: Decorating with dragons

Today's submitter writes, "Professor Excaliblur from Magtheridon (EU-A) loves to mess with arcane forces -- shape shifting, matter entanglement and such -- and often lets the brainstorming blow his mind. Some call him insane. He says he's an artist. So why not make a time-frozen dragon do a very odd limbo dance move trying to eat a wreath ribbon? He quickly found a suitable dragon by rummaging through the portal space. (Unbelievable what stuff mages are dumping there.)"

Around Azeroth: Because I'm tacky

"Because you can find garrison resources most anywhere, I spend a lot of time poking around in all the buildings," writes submitter Gimmlette of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "(Yes, I know about the maps you can get, but that kind of takes the fun out of 'Oooh. What's in here?') I was questing in Pinchwhistle Point and ran up into the main building. To quote George Takei, 'Oh myyyy.' Complete with door beads, I'm not sure if this is an homage to the 1960s or just bad taste. It does need the addition of a lava lamp and mirror tile to be complete, but this makes me thankful for dwarven decorating tastes."

Around Azeroth: Stray cat blues

"So if you were smart enough to have chosen the Smuggler's Inn for your outpost in Spires of Arak, one of the things that you can buy from Honest Jim is a little toy that turns you into a growling, hissing, supposedly-civilized kitty cat, WoD-style," writes submitter Arugadh of The Brotherhood of Iron on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "However, the toy doesn't exactly play nice in the litter box with the other toys, as I found out when I used it while having my Blazing Wings activated. So now I've got fire shooting out from my head and giving me a severe case of heartburn. Which is normal for a dwarf paladin, I admit, but not like this!"

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 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: The end of the innocence

Submitter Shikí of Sojourner on Kargath (US-A) was on hand to document the final destruction of the Warlords of Draenor beta servers earlier this week. While she was on the server that was crashing constantly, she managed to snap a few good pictures. "Stormwind was very full of people on their shiniest mounts," she writes. "About thirty minutes before the snails arrived, the sky got strange and it started to rain. I thought it was a really pretty effect with the spiral of flying mounts amidst the stormy sky."
