Around Azeroth: I know you're around here somewhere

"With the news that you can register for the cosplay part of Blizzcon, a couple members of Spectacular Death (A-Llane) present this costume for consideration," writes guild leader Gimmlette. "Minaithelan and I were working through Sunwell in preparation for an upcoming guild event. While in the demon area of Sunwell, one of the demons got off a fear and I found myself stuck in a cart. Stuck as in couldn't get out. We realize that Blizzard has rules about being able to see and the size of a costume, but we dare someone to, instead of creating an orc costume, show up as a box or a cart. (I think someone did come as the heart box from 'Love Is In the Air.') I wound up having to hearth to get out of the cart. My guild was sooooo sympathetic. 'Only you, Gimm, only you.'"

Around Azeroth: Disc golfing

"At first I thought that a rifle onmy new zero to ninety night elf hunter was a heresy," writes submitter Tuomo of Blade's Edge (EU-A). "One questing transmogrifcation set later, it started to make sense. And the Disc of the Red Flying Cloud literally rounded things up." Ugh, that is just an awful pun. Let's all throw fruit at Tuomo! And then we can figure out if this is some form of Silver Surfer cosplay or not.

Around Azeroth: The ritual slaughtering of the mammoth

The gathered masses on the Timeless Isle were restless. All the rares had been killed, the chests had been looted, and the weird pirate ship had been summoned and destroyed. All that remained was Huolon. But he wouldn't show himself. After an hour of waiting, the mob decided that they needed a sacrifice. Straws were drawn. One tauren came up short. And then the other mammoths devoured the victim. Simple, but bleak. I prefer my method of Huolon-finding, which involves running around the Isle skinning other people's kills until someone writes "Huolon's up" in general chat. (Thanks to submitter Triqz of Crimson Illuminati on Wyrmrest Accord [US-H] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: A passel of nightmares

"For sure you'll get a lot of these, but the guild said I had to send this one to you because you wouldn't have one from Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A)," writes guild leader Gimmlette. "Tonight's event was to kill the Mists of Pandaria world bosses and we started with Galleon. We had 24 people in the raid, including the two druids who were levels 50 and 46. (Yes, they died; a lot, frequently, over and over, but that is the guild name.) I saw the video touting the Warforged Nightmare before logging in and knew I had to have this mount. The fact that everyone in the raid could get a temporary one was a huge bonus. I know at least three people were going to get the mount after having the chance to ride into battle on it. As Lasts said, 'OMG! It dances! Sold!' Well done, Blizzard. Now the only problem is, do I make a transmog that matches my horse?"

Around Azeroth: In which I offend Arizonans

Okay, this Color Run thing has gone too far. It was irritating enough when it was just stoner-type college kids messing up paint jobs on residential streets. But now they've gotten the phoenixes involved. Phoenix, you are a proud and noble creature! Do not degrade your legacy by participating in these shenanigans! It's bad enough that they named that terrible airport connection city after you. (Thanks to submitter Hawk of Expiation on Aggramar [US-A] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: Pretty when you die

"I've been working on my Knights of the Ebon Blade dailies in the downtime while waiting for Warlords of Draenor," writes submitter Razelka of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "When I killed these two and they fell so neatly beside the bench, I had to take a moment to admire my work. And the scenery! The Scarlet Onslaught sure knows how to decorate. That draenei seated pose makes it look all so innocent."

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?"
