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.

Around Azeroth: Let there be rock!

Submitter Cirthendil of Order of the Crow on Moon Guard (US-H) had only one goal in his life -- to be a rock and roll star. Unfortunately, he died before learning to play anything other than the opening riff to "Stairway to Heaven." (Actually, he died because he kept playing the opening riff to "Stairway to Heaven." Guitar store owners get really, really irritated with that.) But as a Forsaken, he was finally able to fulfill his dream. Here he is performing a Roky Erickson cover in the graveyard, complete with banshee backup singers and groupies of the fellow undead.

Around Azeroth: Short and buff

Considering the amount of beer that male dwarves seem to imbibe, you would think they would have big pot bellies and flabby arms. But as this screenshot from Kham of Dark Harvest on Perenolde (US-A) shows, they're actually pretty well-muscled. I've never had the inclination to look at a shirtless dwarf before, but it's really not as bad as I imagined. Also, their kneecaps look like noses! (As a side note, can we discuss how impractical that belt buckle is? All you have to do is bend over to tie your shoe, and suddenly you've stabbed yourself through the femoral artery.)

Around Azeroth: Spirit in the sky

Around Azeroth I'm going up to that spirit in the sky SUNDAY
"Yu'lon was kind enough to give my warrior a ride to the Valley of the Four Winds," writes submitter Mashaad of Decoden on Aszune (EU-H). "Or maybe she just wanted to get rid of any nearby adventurers after the Horde and Alliance wrecked her nice new body. Either way, she does cut an impressive figure as she flies over the Jade Forest."

Around Azeroth: Anything you can do, I can do better

Boyfriend/girlfriend duo Iyotanka and Leda of The Boisterous Few on Ravenholdt (US-H) are thankfully not the competitive type. When they both finished off their legendary cloaks at the same time, Leda decided to pose them both for this nice screenshot, instead of, say, quietly logging onto his character, moving him to a remote location, and destroying his hearthstone so she could get the cloak first. Or getting a guildmate to log on while they're both at work and finishing the quest. Or /gkicking him and making him sleep on the couch. Gaming relationships can be fraught with peril, which is why my husband and I don't play co-op games anymore.

Around Azeroth: Shop 'til you drop

Submitter Meyham of Legion of Justice on Shadowmoon (EU-A) thinks that this newfangled transmogrification fad is just a flash in the pan. She prefers to support her local businesses by shopping at the independent boutiques of Dalaran. The shopkeepers managed to sell her a lovely red and black robe and an elaborate new headpiece. But they couldn't fulfill her dream of looking just like the dwarf in the painting above the counter. Maybe someday, Meyham.

Around Azeroth: Maximum overdrive

One of my favorite scary stories is Stephen King's Trucks, set in a world where tractor-trailers have come to life and are murdering humans. It sounds completely campy, but the story itself is actually terrifying. World of Warcraft doesn't have any trucks, and the closest equivalent, the goblin shredders, are already alive and killing people, which no one seems particularly bothered by. So we'll have to settle for this anthropomorphic boiler, captured on film by Matteø on Darkmoon Faire (EU-A). Just look at that grin! It certainly isn't planning to devour you and burn you alive.

Around Azeroth: I'm very happy to be dead

Around Azeroth I'm very happy about being dead WEDNESDAY
The Twilight Highlands are suffering from a certain lack of adventurers nowadays. So the Highlands Bureau of Tourism decided to launch a Halloween-themed campaign to get people to visit the gloomy zone. Unfortunately, they only had two hundred gold to spend. That was enough to buy some oversized witches' hats and bribe the decapitated dragon heads to smile for a bit, but they couldn't afford to upgrade the mining nodes or hire an exterminator to deal with the giant tentacle creature. (Thanks to submitter Ezekington of The Gnomeland Security on Doomhammer [US-A] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: Calamariphobia

Around Azeroth Calamariphobia TUESDAY
"After trying (unsuccessfully, we thought) to summon an Old God to the Shrine of Seven Stars, our little cult of shadow priests eventually gave up and went about our shadowy business," writes submitter Djelibeybi of Breath of Midnight on Shadowmoon (US-A). "When several of us eventually got bored with sucking the life out of the various fauna of Pandaria and decided to go see this Thunder King everyone was on about, one of our party found herself with a bit of unwanted attention. A wild tentacle had followed Melthulhu to the Isle of Thunder, coaxing out some terror and possibly a little excitement, bringing to light a previously unseen bit of Pandaren popular culture." Not to blame Melthulhu, but if you're frightened of tentacles, you might want to reconsider your character name. That's just asking for trouble.

Around Azeroth: My mogu pal

Around Azeroth My mogu pal MONDAY
On one hand, the mogu have oppressed the pandaren people for thousands of years, enslaving them and massacring the gentle bear-people by the score. On the other hand, submitter Taoqian of Wyrmrest Accord (US-A) is sick of being picked on by the stealthier rogues in Stormwind, and figured that bringing a mogu to the city would intimidate them into leaving him alone. Just remember, Taoqian, you brought it home, so you're responsible for feeding it (gnomes) and cleaning up its (exceedingly bloody) messes.

Around Azeroth: Hot wolf and apple stew

Around Azeroth Hot wolf and apple stew SUNDAY
"Having recently been separated from their pack, Adsilla and Julette of Argent Dawn (US-A) felt a lot like Moon Moon," writes submitter Robert. "So, in true Moon Moon style, instead of leveling, they decided to play with the silly beings bobbing for apples. When both of their heads popped up, some unprepared pandaren went back to drinking, a draenei jumped so far he landed on the crashed Exodar, and a gnome cowered under the table for an hour." Urgh, and now those apples are going to taste like wet dog. How could you?

Around Azeroth: Trick or get off my property, you horrible little monster

Around Azeroth Trick or get off my property, you horrible little monster SATURDAY
The warlock contingent has been putting in a strong showing of screenshots this past week. Maybe with Hallow's End coming up, their power is increasing. Sprocalock of Dragonlords on Elune (US-A), a gnome warlock, decided he wanted to be the scariest thing possible for Hallow's End. So he decided to stretch his imagination and go as ... a goblin warlock! Normally this would earn a "eh, you tried" from me, but the combination of Sprocalock's purple mustache clipping through the oversized goblin mask and the well-positioned dinosaur tail elevates it into a class of its own. And *BLEEP*, it was ninety-nine cents!

Around Azeroth: Family resemblance

Around Azeroth Family resemblance FRIDAY
"Here's my happy Void Family!" writes submitter Dermadark of Fantastic Ten on Tarren Mill (EU-H). "We do some herb gathering in our quality time, but other than that we are just a normal, green-fire-slinging, soul-draining, doting, run-of-the-mill warlock family." So does this mean that Dermadark and her voidwalker ... um ... had relations? Is that even possible? Nah, let's just pretend they created the kid through some sort of evil dark magic ritual, which is much less disturbing. I guess the baby has dad's body and mom's lack of eyes.
