Around Azeroth: Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream

Around Azeroth Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream THURSDAY
I'm not much of a Doctor Who fan. I like David Tennant okay, and we have a little stuffed Dalek for the baby because I enjoy hearing it say "Exterminate! Exterminate!" but all I've watched of the show has been over my husband's shoulder. Count it as one of those innumerable shows that Tumblr's insane fandom has ensured that I'll never actually watch, just like Supernatural and that BBC Sherlock show with the dude who looks like an alien but fangirls find inexplicably attractive. But even I can recognize the Tardis, although I'm not entirely sure why it's hanging out in the Caverns of Time in this screenshot. I suppose it finally found its natural habitat. (Thanks to submitter Morgatho of The Evocati on Laughing Skull [US-H] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: Don't be jealous just because I'm clearly more awesome than you

Around Azeroth Don't be jealous just because I'm clearly more awesome than you WEDNESDAY
"Curious Oracle is curious," writes submitter Tang of WoW Insider guild The Insiders on Zangarmarsh (US-H). "Quickben's Curious Oracle Hatchling seems a bit stunned by the bright lights coming from legendary cloaks. Beholder and Hallan on the left might look jealous, but Beholder is eyeing the Oracle pet and Hallan is thinking about hair products." If you want to join the WoW Insider guild family, check them out here. You may even see me, as I briefly create a tauren named Moocowski for an event and then delete her because I get irritated at the tauren animations.

Around Azeroth: Gone like the water

Around Azeroth Gone like the water TUESDAY
"I want Garrosh downed as much as the next guy," writes submitter Gimmlette of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "He abused the people he was supposed to be leading. He destroyed an ecosystem and antagonized a people we were trying to get to know. Plus, he's Horde and I'm Alliance. But this! This is an abomination! 'Alas, poor Yorick. I knew him, Horatio: a fellow of infinite jest, most excellent fancy.' All he did was sail his little boat in the pond near the Shrine of the Seven Stars. That's all he aspired to do. Now, with the waters in the Vale dried up, thanks to Garrosh, Yorik still sits; a forlorn, lonely figure, no infinite jest, just a sad visage, little boat at his side, waiting for the water's return. Take heart. We brave adventurers will try to get the waters back, only to come shake you down for Mr. Smite's Brass Compass."

Around Azeroth: The nine little pigs and their house of horrors

Around Azeroth The nine little pigs and their house of horrors MONDAY
The first little pig built his house of straw, and it was blown down by the big bad bear. The second little pig built his house of sticks, and it was blown down by the big bad bear. The nine little pigs built their house of wood, kidnapped the big bad bear's baby son, and called the big bad bear over to the house.

"Do you see that skeleton?" the nine little pigs said, as they stood on their roof with the innocent bear cub between them. "That's Dave from the village. We gnawed off his flesh and hung him up on the side of the house. In the morning, the humans will find his remains, along with your precious little cub, with this blood we collected smeared all over his muzzle. What will they think has happened? Won't that be fun to see?"

And so the big angry bear paid the pigs several thousand dollars to rebuild the houses, retrieved his son, moved his family halfway across the country, changed their names, and had panic attacks whenever he saw a pig. And the nine little pigs kept their dark secret for the rest of their lives. (Thanks to submitter Valexion of Blade's Edge [US-A] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: What's so funny about peace, love and understanding?

Around Azeroth What's so funny about peace, love and understanding SUNDAY
"I'm exceptionally proud of this event," writes submitter Derscha Kettlebomb of AAMS ALLIANCE BRANCH on Cenarion Circle (US-A). "Last Sunday was Cenarion Circle's annual Armistice Day Ball, a cross-faction social event hosted by my guild. It's been around much longer than I have; this was its eighth year, making it one of our realm's longest traditions. It's traditionally been a day to remember and honor the way both sides worked together at the Battle of Mount Hyjal, although this year, there were definitely new overtones to the event. For Derscha, the war made it more important than ever to hold the Ball. Pictured here is the crowd listening to Derscha's welcome speech. Fortunately, there were some convenient stairs for her to stand on so she could be seen!"

Around Azeroth: The prince and the panther

Around Azeroth The prince and the panther SATURDAY
"Inspiration is a wonderful thing," writes submitter Cragin of Alleria (US-A). "While running through the worgen starting area yet again, because it's just that great, I came back after being AFK to the following scene. And, looking at the inherently funny-in-a-way-you-can't-explain picture of my kitty sitting next to Prince Liam in his Victorian garb, it hit me: World of Warcraft: Vaudeville!
Cragin: More Forsaken in the offing!
Liam: More Forsaken?! What a chore.
Are they vampire Forsaken?
Cragin: No, no, zombie ones galore!

Liam: So what shall we do now, Cragin?
Cragin: There's just one thing which will convince.
Liam: ... You will bite them, Mr. Cragin?
Cragin: ABSOLUTELY, MY GOOD PRINCE!
This stuff just writes itself."

Around Azeroth: So long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, goodbye

Around Azeroth So long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, goodbye FRIDAY
It was about two weeks after the Siege of Orgrimmar began when the Kor'kron started deserting en masse. Garrosh's administration wasn't paying their salaries, their health insurance plan had been reduced to five silk bandages a month, and they were starting to realize that a single spiked shoulderpad just wasn't cutting it in terms of adequate torso armor. When this group of orcs noticed that the giant fire tank they were 'clearing the way for' wasn't designed with any brakes and had a disturbing number of purple mohawks caught in its treads, they quickly decided it was time to look for other employment opportunities. (Thanks to submitter Matteø of Wine and Dine on Darkmoon Faire [EU-A] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: Now presented in eye-popping 3D!

Around Azeroth Now presented in eyepopping 3D! THURSDAY
Hey, kids! Did you know that back in the day, 3D wasn't just a slider on the side of your handheld console, or an excuse for movie theaters to charge you $5 more for gratuitous shots of characters throwing stuff at the screen? Instead, it involved looking at tinted, blurry blue and red objects while wearing a ridiculous looking pair of glasses and pretending to be impressed. Submitters Serendippity and Nixee of Complexity on Eonar (US-A) remember, and they're dedicated to bringing you yesterday's technology today! Now go buy a pair of 3D glasses on Ebay so you can see this tauren pirate emerge slightly from the screen.

Around Azeroth: It's the eye of the Hogger, it's the thrill of the fight

Around Azeroth It's the eye of the Hogger, it's the thrill of the fight WEDNESDAY
"Who says gnolls can't be monks?" queries submitter Ragatha of War Pigs on Scarlet Crusade (US-H). "Here you can see one delivering a flying kick to the ... cannonballs." I have to admit, it takes some skill to do martial arts while holding a lit torch in one hand and a bottle of wine in the other, but something about that combination makes me think this is going to end badly. Alcohol, fire and gunpowder have been the downfall of many an idiot, especially in the adolescent years. (Yes, high school friends, I'm talking about you and your bottle rocket fights and homemade mortars.)

Around Azeroth: Lightning rod

Around Azeroth Lightning rod TUESDAY
"Only in Azeroth would it sound like a remotely good idea to fly around on a lightning-generating dragon during a thunderstorm," writes submitter Raggy of Greek Gods Fury on Runetotem (EU-A), who clearly has not learned the lesson from the Bishop's golf game in Caddyshack. "At the very least you'd expect such a feat to result in one truly epic case of static cling, which admittedly would probably be an extremely uncomfortable experience for a worgen."

Around Azeroth: Bath time is the best time!

Around Azeroth Bath time is the best time! MONDAY
Most dogs aren't super into baths, but worgen rogue (worgue?) Baerlon of OneTwoThree DEATH on Eldre'Thalas (US-A) enjoys having a nice shvitz before raid time. Of course, it's impossible to get any privacy in Azeroth, unless you manage to locate a rare instanced restroom. So he has to bathe with his pet lizard watching him and a female pandaren doing her laundry in the tub next to him. Maybe that's why he left all of his armor on.

Around Azeroth: Peaceful easy feeling

Around Azeroth Peaceful easy feeling SUNDAY
"I was waiting (and waiting) for a flex raid to happen when I used One with Nature, which ported me to this wonderful place," writes submitter Wrathsomed of Wants the Achieve on Runetotem (US-A). "As I waited, sprite darters came and blessed me for my patience. Magic!" Ugh, who needs peace and magic and fairy circles when you're waiting to brutally murder a boss? It would have been more useful to spend the wait time fighting off a pack of angry wolves than being blessed by cute little dragon things.

Around Azeroth: Days of swim or sink

Around Azeroth Days of swim or sink SATURDAY
Urgh, water in video games. I still get facial twitches when thinking about underwater levels. (Thanks, Mario games! And the Water Temple in Ocarina of Time! And the freaking electric seaweed in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which I had completely forgotten about until Googling 'worst water levels' for this article!) World of Warcraft is pretty forgiving with its water levels, with all the buffs and air bubbles and underwater breathing potions available, but accidents do happen. Like dying in a shallow, filthy sewer while pulling Durumu. Sure, it's more likely that he got killed by the boss than drowned two feet from the surface, but that's still no way for a hero to go. (Thanks to submitter Granficus of Crazy Drunkens on Pozzo dell'Eternità [EU-A] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: Doom on the balcony

Image
"After talking about kiting Huolon to the Jade Forest, we decided to give it a try," writes submitter Valkyrie of Monolith on Malygos (US-A) "Much to our surprise, it worked. So we thought, 'Hey, let's go for the gold and bring him to the Shrine of Seven Stars. It's probably been awhile since he's gotten to visit Alani.' After that short visit, we brought Huolon home to the shrine -- much to the chagrin of anyone AFK on the balcony. After a short battle, he decided to take a nap." (Thanks to Demise, Moartears, Desden and Andistina of Malygos for their help with this screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: Ugly on the inside, too

Around Azeroth Ugly on the inside THURSDAY
Blizzard has heard your pleas, Alliance peeps! They're adding a new race. An edgy race. A tough race. A race of ... forest sprites? Awesome. Sure, they're not quite as pretty as most of the Alliance or Horde races -- well, maybe they're cuter than male goblins -- but you can customize them, can't you? You can change the eye color and their head spikes and ... um ... what kind of leaves they're wearing as a loincloth? Hmm, maybe it's time to reconsider naga as a character option, even if they can't wear pants. They've got to be better than this. (Thanks to submitter Ezekington of The Gnomeland Security on Doomhammer [US-A] for the screenshot!)
