Around Azeroth, Beta Edition: Animal attraction

What do wild animals think when they see a druid in feral form? Do they consider it an outsider, or do they welcome it into the fold? Beta tester Skamp of Thunder Cats on Borean Tundra (US-A) seems to have drawn the attention of this weird toucan-like bird, but so far it's holding off on attacking him. Good thing, too, because that sword-beak looks like it can do some serious damage.

Around Azeroth, Beta Edition: A woman of mystery

Who is that orc? She's so mysterious! Well, she's standing atop a bed of flowers using a branch with berries as a sword and a flower as a shield, which is actually pretty mysterious behavior for anyone who isn't a six-year-old girl or a drunk cosplayer. Still, if you have to title yourself Mysterious Orc, you might be trying a little too hard. (Thanks to beta tester Nganga of Pact of War on Silver Hand [US-H] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: No room at the inn

"Thanks to the weakening of the boundaries between alternate realities (CRZ), this is just your average day in Goldshire's Lion's Pride Inn," writes submitter Enishi of Darkwind on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "Alliance, Horde, debauchery, it's all here. Those unfamiliar with this Moon Guard reality take heed; there have been troubling reports about people who've spent too much time there. It changes everything about them -- acting different, dressing different, growing mustaches. They collect robes, lotions, new bedspreads, curtains, have tastes for thick carpeting and weirdo lighting, and they often get new friends to match their new tastes. If you're not into that, keep your head down, get in, do your quests, get out, and leave town without reading chat."

Around Azeroth: Next season on Game of Thrones!

Let me tell you a story, adventurer. This is the tale of an age long past, when the pandaren were forced to worship the larger, levitating pandaren. Someone was carrying around a red ball. There was also the ghost of a dead saurok, and a statue of a dragon, I guess. And ... all the larger pandaren were doing the YMCA dance? None of this makes any sense! Assistant Lorewalker Martin! This story is incredibly long and confusing. When will you have the next tale prepared? Six years, you say? Adventurer, do you still have that blackjack you used on those Lazy Peons so many years ago? I have a new quest for you. (Thanks to Qaeto of Trollbane [US-A] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: Your creepy uncle

The standards for child adoption in Azeroth are still disturbingly low, I see. Submitter Randomlock of Randomnoobs and Friends on Tichondrius (US-H) somehow managed to obtain guardianship of this Argent Gruntling, which he thoughtfully named I Farm Gold. Rather than put I Farm Gold in any sort of school or apprenticeship, Randomlock has decided that the best education is for the child to sit in front of the auction house while he shows off his own unique transmog set, consisting of a horned helmet, a legendary cape, and a loincloth. Appropriate!

Around Azeroth: Cute. Clever. Mischievous. Intelligent. Dangerous.

"Many guilds request that potential members fill out an application, as it's a good way to see if a new member will fit in," writes submitter Gimmlette. "Spectacular Death of Llane (US-A) also asks some follow-up questions, such as 'What should you never do to a Mogwai?' If you remember, you should never expose it to bright light or feed it after midnight. Lastly, you should never get it wet. Kelidor demonstrates why getting a worgen wet and then applying electricity, particularly from a gnomish transport device at Steelgrill's Depot, might not be a good idea either. Back away slowly."

Around Azeroth: Ain't no party like a Kor'kron party

Because a Kor'kron party is mandatory. Submitter Karhog and his orc and goblin only guild Korkron Vanguard on Argent Dawn (EU-H), who missed a perfect opportunity to name themselves "It's Not Easy Being Green", held an impromptu rave in one of the Orgrimmar elevators. No stimulants were used, in accordance with Garrosh's "drug-free workplace or I chop your head off" policy, but everyone still ended up shirtless and sweaty. Ugh, sweaty orcs must smell just terrible.

Around Azeroth: Waste not, want not

Such a shame to waste that much food! Don't you know there are children starving in Pandaria? Well, not the pandaren children, who are actually pretty chubby. That infinitely replenishing farm in Halfhill has gotten kind of old, so now everyone's buying prepackaged, fattening stuff from the vendors. But the, uh, the mogu children are starving! They could be eating those feasts that someone so carelessly tossed around Stormwind, but I guess it's more important for a guild to get the Dinner Party achievement. Now the mogu children will have to eat the pandaren children. (Thanks to submitter Zaguate of JupponGatana on Steamwheedle Cartel [US-A] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: The belly of the beast

The announcement of Warlords of Draenor has sent a bolt of nostalgia coursing through my heart. So when I saw this picture of Vazula of Moon Ascendant on Hyjal (US-H) standing just inside the entrance to Onyxia's Lair, I thought it was a screenshot from back in the day. It reminded me of my own female troll, standing there in mismatched fire resist gear for my first-ever 40-man raid. The presence of Savage is the only anachronism that spoils the effect. Replace him with an Echeyakee and we'll be in business!

Around Azeroth: Caput draconis

Submitter Ysabéll of The Evil Dead on Malygos (US-A) writes, "After providing the denizens of Goldshire, Northshire and all the forests and roads in between with the most impressive Mammoth Train ever, several of our group decided that the presence of the Darkmoon Faire warranted not one, but two (!) mount parties. Bronze Drakes ensued." Ah, the Bronze Drake. The lazy man's dragon mount.

Around Azeroth: From one, many

Submitter Xixillia of Barbed Velvet on Magtheridon (US-H) must be blessed with an infinite supply of patience (or Adderall.) She spawn-camped around the clock for two weeks so her team of four multi-boxing hunters could all get their spirit kitty. Of course, I had to ask her whether she was another incarnation of the infamous Xzin, who used to make my Alterac Valleys much more entertaining back when I was on Magtheridon. Sadly, she is not, but it still triggered a wave of nostalgia for my old server. Funky! Krague! Rohnaj! Even Sarkasmos! How I miss you all.

Around Azeroth: The prodigal murloc returns

Submitter Sue received her Murkalot battle pet in the mail the other day, as did all of you lucky bastards who are attending BlizzCon or have the time to watch the Virtual Ticket. Some of us will be working night shift downtown, you know. But I digress. Sue decided to take her Murkalot to Winterfin Retreat, so some of the game's few friendly murlocs can see what a success he's made of himself. Sadly, Murkalot was embarrassed to be seen around his uncouth relatives from Northrend, and decided to exit the area in a vertical manner.

Around Azeroth: Respect the meteorology

"I was doing some farming during the Day of the Dead holiday when it started to rain," writes submitter Enishi of Prophecy on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "I thought, 'Wouldn't it make sense and be pretty cool if this thunderstorm watered the plants for me?' Nope! The weather is a harsh and mysterious mistress in Azeroth." And congrats, if you're reading this, you're probably not at BlizzCon. Come cry and drink with those of us left behind. Just don't try to keep up with Rossi -- increased alcohol tolerance is a little-known passive buff for warriors.

Around Azeroth: Fireball island

The goblin starting zone is one of my favorite areas in all of Azeroth, so I'm always happy to highlight screenshots of Kezan and the Lost Isles for those poor lost souls who only play Alliance. In this picture, Mashaad of Decoden on Aszune (EU-H) barely escaped an erupting volcano on the ladder of a goblin airplane. She survived, but the hem of her robe suffered some terminal singeing. Hope you picked up tailoring as a profession, Mashaad!

Around Azeroth: Kiss of the spider dude

"I think that I either stumbled upon a Stormrage realm Halloween party or spoilers for the next season of The Walking Dead," writes submitter Strika of Veridian Nether on Stormrage (US-A). "The character in the pic is named Daryldìxon, and it looks like the walkers have evolved!" I'm not a frequent watcher of The Walking Dead -- I know, I know, but I barely have enough time to keep up with HBO's stuff, much less all the AMC dramas -- but isn't that the squinty redneck guy that all the fangirls are into for some reason? There's a bit of resemblance between the avatar and the character, mostly in the unkempt hair department.
