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.

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!"

"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!)
