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!)

Around Azeroth: To the church, no intent to repent

Around Azeroth To the church, no intent to repent WEDNESDAY
Submitter Mengskraun of Inestil's Bargain on Anvilmar (US-A) misses that old-time religion. If Archbishop Benedictus's fel-infused church was good enough for him, then damn it, it's good enough for everyone else. Benedictus may have wanted to destroy all life on Azeroth, but at least he gave his sermons in the original Eredun, and he made the best tuna hotdish at the church potluck for three years straight. Doesn't tradition count for anything these days?

Around Azeroth: Those who wander

Around Azeroth
"After having it in his diary for a year, my druid finally made it to the Wanderer's Festival," writes submitter Ozzard of Forever Angels on Bloodhoof (EU-A). "He trapped one of the hatchlings, drank with Chen Stormstout, listened to Lorewalker Cho, danced with the celebrants, then ... just sat looking out over the sea, watching the festival pilgrims launch their lanterns onto the water and wave them off. He thought of the places he'd been over the years, and idly wondered whether a wandering lantern would ever wash up on the shores of Gilneas -- a lost visitor from a foreign shore, just like Ozzard in Pandaria. Before he could follow that line of thought any further, he ran back to Chen's keg and got very, very drunk."

Around Azeroth: You can't afford to ignore that I'm the disease

Around Azeroth You can't afford to ignore that I'm the disease MONDAY
Our poor characters. What suffering we put them through! After his third straight death via fatigue, our submitter's human death knight, Nobby, is ready to come through the computer monitor and slaughter his controller. Listen, we've all hit the autorun button while flying and gone AFK for longer than we should, but try to show some consideration, people. Spend a couple silver on a flight instead. You'll land exactly where you want to go, you're supporting the local economy, and your character will thank you.

Around Azeroth: A literal /gkick

Around Azeroth A literal gkick SUNDAY
Ever get so tired of the endless loop of managing guild drama -- the whispers, the conversations in officer chat, the behind the scenes negotiations to replace a main tank -- that you just wanted to do something drastic? Like, for example, drop your nemesis over the edge of a giant mushroom to his final, non-rezzable death? Guild master Nounours of GrandGalacticInquisitor on Llane (US-A) recently lost her temper with troublesome shaman Wodehermit, leading to his untimely demise in the swamps of rural Zangarmarsh. I guess that DPS really is a dime a dozen to replace.

Around Azeroth: The battle of evil versus slightly less evil

Around Azeroth The battle of evil versus slightly less evil SATURDAY
"Are warlocks evil?" queries today's submitter. "Someone had the bright idea to ask a warlock how he would solve a moral dilemma. Instead of being puzzled by the very concept of a moral dilemma, an insightful answer was provided. It turns out this warlock consults a shoulder warlock and shadow priest duo. But which of them has opinions that are less evil? The would-be philosopher's face was melted before he could get an answer to his second question on warlock ethics." (Thanks to featured evil folks Alleandra of Emerald Dream, Surial of Aegwynn and Taevin of Aegwynn, all [US-A], for their screenshot!)
