Around Azeroth: Glyph of rain of frogs

When I was a kid, I played on a softball team. They had to take everyone who came, and since I was pretty terrible at every form of athletics, they put me at catcher. I think I had literally one hit the entire season. Anyway, our home field was near a large pond, that contained the usual variety of Wisconsin pond creatures. One day they must have sensed a change in the weather, because right in the middle of the seventh inning, the frogs attacked. Tiny little frogs, appearing out of nowhere, blanketing the field. My friend Sara and I speculated that they were falling from the sky. Since we were little kids, we cried when we had to run the bases and squashed the tiny frogs. I think they eventually just called the game because of that, although they claimed it was because of an approaching thunderstorm. We lost something like 7-1 anyway. Why am I bringing this up? Oh, no reason. (Thanks to submitter Ruuzulu of Hallowed on Sargeras [US-A] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: The weight

Submitter Rhali of Gnomeregan Forever on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A) has discovered one of the downsides of trying to raid with an all-gnome guild. The pressure plates after Immerseus in Siege of Orgrimmar don't activate for anything less than five fully-grown adult humans. Rhali and his friends tried jumping up and down, pulling out their demons and battle pets. but they still couldn't manage to get it to trigger. Time to invite a draenei to the guild, just for this contingency.

Around Azeroth: Little corpses on the hillside

"While exploring south of Krasarang Wilds, I found this out on an island in the middle of the bay," writes submitter Arugadh of The Brotherhood of Iron on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "The skeletons are too small to be pandaren - um, adult pandaren, anyway. Which is implying that either gnomes or goblins have been in Pandaria for a lot longer than they want us to believe, or that those bears are doing something awful involving child sacrifice to whatever lies below their land. You know, whatever it is that sends up those tentacles when we farm."

Around Azeroth: Now they're just taunting you

This is what happens when nerds grow up, become GMs, and then realize that their high school bully is on their server. Submitter Davinraro of Meliora on Stormrage (US-A) had just killed Elegon when he noticed that the sparkly loot chest had spawned in the middle of nowhere, totally inaccessible. They tried for half an hour to get to the chest before giving up. Who wants to bet that the Astral Cloud Serpent was in there, too?

Around Azeroth: But there are children starving in Stranglethorn Vale!

Sure, filling the Shrine of Two Moons with Great Pandaren Banquets might have seemed like a good idea at the time. But just wait until those fish start to rot and whatever kind of soup that is begins to ferment. And are those garlic cloves sitting out in the open, or just poorly rendered potatoes? They'll have to quarantine the whole area and send the Horde over to hang out at the Shrine of Seven Stars. Nothing bad could come of that idea. (Thanks to submitter Jedi of Ghostlands [US-H] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: They're breeding!

Does the world really need more pink-haired, pink-clothed, crazy-eyed gnomes? Does the world even need one of those? Submitter Gnofu and his guild, Heroes Of The Mist on Chamber of Aspects (EU-A), decided to show off all the possible gnome hairstyles with a traveling fashion show. Of course, they lost a lot of gnomes on the long road from Ironforge to Light's Hope Chapel, but it's easy enough to create more. Just take a male and female gnome, add some pink lemonade vodka, and soon enough, you should see results.

Around Azeroth: There's one at every party

After submitter Deslur of Heroes Of The Mist on Chamber of Aspects (EU-A) was unceremoniously dumped by his girlfriend in favor of a guy whose fur didn't smell like wet dog, his guildmates decided to cheer him up in the traditional pandaren fashion. Predictably, this involves massive amounts of alcohol consumption. But Deslur was too bummed out to even get drunk. His friends somehow managed to party on without him, while he retreated to a dark corner to cry and listen to "Love Will Tear Us Apart." Or maybe that was just me in college.

Around Azeroth: A lady of leisure

"You remember the picture I sent in of the goblin and his luxurious bath on the speed barge in Thousand Needles?" writes submitter Arugadh of The Brotherhood of Iron on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "I probably should have sent this pic in with it: the other side of the room. A goblin, with an oil painting of a naked human woman (well, as naked as it gets in Azeroth, anyway). Not a goblin woman -- a human woman. And you can tell it's an OLD oil painting from all the age cracks running through it. So -- keep this in mind -- when Deathwing wreaked his havoc in Cataclysm, there was no warning of the disaster ... yet in the rush to get away and survive, this goblin decided that the nekkid-human-woman was his most precious possession that he had to flee with. My mind shuts down on why he also saved his blue floaty-horse and a bucket of unidentifiable tools. I mean, I play on Wyrmrest Accord, not Moon Guard." Poor Moon Guard, always the victim of cheap shots in this column.

Around Azeroth: We two can be good company

"So today as I zoned in on my pally I found myself trapped under a yak," writes submitter Autumn. "Not a most fortunate situation, but as a dwarf, well, it happens. Once the driver removed said yak, he (or she, sometimes you can't tell with dwarves) exclaimed that this was a match made in heaven. Here is a screen shot of us chatting on the stairs. Happy meal, anybody?"

Around Azeroth: I wouldn't cry for lost souls, you might drown

"Flying over Gadgetzan, I saw an odd sight," writes submitter Arugadh of The Brotherhood of Iron on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "It was a group of magic-using folks with wings. My breath caught in horror as I realized I could not understand a single word they were saying, for they were speaking in foul Demonic. A dead goblin lay at the head of their horrifying gathering, with a demon feeding on him. Then I realized that warlocks were gathered below, and had perpetrated murder most foul to feed their abyssal demon! And yet the Gadgetzan bruisers did nothing, nor could I act; simply trying to land in order to blast these traitors with my Righteous Vengeance had the Gadgetzan guards pouncing all over me. There may have been slight misunderstanding about the matter of a bar bill."

Around Azeroth: Getting off on a pyrotechnicality

Everyone needs some time to celebrate. And there's nothing more worth celebrating than finally coming to the end of Vashj'ir. Submitter Onaros of Pandemic Legion on Lightbringer (US-A) decided to throw a party to commemorate him being done with the watery realm. He set off a batch of purple fireworks, which immediately attracted the attention of some naga above and behind him. Oh well. One last corpse run isn't too much to ask, is it?

Around Azeroth: Grind your bones to make my bread

"After that wonderful Wowcrendor Video about the ceilings in WoW, I've been making it a point to not only look up, but also to look down whenever I'm in an instance or ... well, anywhere, really," writes submitter Arugadh of The Brotherhood of Iron on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "The sheer amount of detail that the developers put into things that most players will never notice or see just amazes me. Such as this, from the Soulforge instance in Wrath - you get caught up with too many GOGOGO groups, and you overlook the truly interesting and disturbing things. This is what you see when you look over the edge of the walkway. What is Arthas doing in there? What could this contraption possibly be for? It spins, it opens, it closes, and there's nothing living down there that I could see, save for those eerie floating skulls. What is going on underneath Icecrown Citadel that's going to come back and bite us all in our collective butts in a future expansion?"

Around Azeroth: Full frontal moo-dity

Does it really count as being naked if you're covered in fur? This, and other existential questions, will be pondered by submitter Artoo of Total Annihilation on Twisting Nether (EU-H) as soon as he gets some rest. It's hot in the jungles of Pandaria, and the natives seem more interested in devising new and exciting ways to get drunk than inventing any sort of air conditioning that would make life more pleasant for them and other hairy creatures. No wonder he has to sleep in his underwear.

Around Azeroth: Crashing the game counts as a victory, right?

"At some point I realized that in Blackwing Lair, the adds that spawn at the start of the Nefarian fight will keep spawning until you kill enough of them to get to phase 2," writes submitter Benedicto of Watchers of the Wall on Stormscale (EU-H). "So, naturally, I thought I'd let them spawn and see how big of a mess I could make. I stood facing a pillar so I wouldn't kill them with Swift Reflexes, and kept self-healing. A few minutes later, they stopped spawning, unfortunately, so I had to kill them. As soon as I pressed Spinning Crane Kick, everything froze. According to MSBT, there were about 530 adds around me. The game kept going at a glacial pace, dealing one SCK tick every 30 seconds or so, and between that and the AOE damage cap, it took me about six minutes to kill the whole group.

They eventually died, I started bashing Nefarian as normal, and then I remembered ... they come back.The whole ordeal took almost half an hour; nobody else thought it was funny, but I loved every moment of it, and giggled uncontrollably all the way through."

Around Azeroth: Along came a spider

Submitter Virusus of Fights Like a Girl on Blackwater Raiders (US-A) left her boyfriend in charge of their campground for just a moment while stepping away to answer the call of nature. She returned to find this scene. Big jugs of alcohol and giant spiders do not mix well, folks! (Insert Australia joke here.) As you can see, Virusus mourned her loss for a few minutes before hearthing back to Darnassus to find herself a new, and hopefully smarter, man.
