Phat Loot Phriday: Sleepy Willy

Tommy was very excited. It was Show and Tell Day in Ms. Haberdash's Young Ret Paladin's School, and Tommy had brought his very best friend in the whole wide world. He'd brought Sleepy Willy. Because Willy was Tommy's best friend, Tommy brought the little creature with him everywhere. This was the first time, however, that he'd be showing off his Willy in class.

"Tommy Three-Buttons, are you ready to show off your pet?" Ms. Haberdash asked in her shrill voice. She looked askance for a moment. "This isn't about your once-an-hour trick, is it? Because that's many months off yet."

"No, ma'am!" Tommy answered. "This is about my best friend! It's my Willy!"

"Hmph," Ms. Haberdash said. "Isn't it always? Okay, proceed, Tommy."

"Everyone, I'd like you to meet Sleepy Willy!" Tommy said as he took the podium. The little creature hovered a few inches off the floor next to him. "He has one eye! And when we go into dungeons, he floats around behind me. And if the tank isn't pulling fast enough, Willy totally falls asleep, and it's very cute, and the girls say 'Awwww.' They really like my Wil ... "

"Tommy!" Ms. Haberdash interrupted. "Please, keep it clean and stick to the point."

"He also shoots a laser beam from his eye and kills critters!" Tommy said. "He's the best one-eyed Will ..."

"How did you meet your pet?" Ms. Haberdash interrupted again.

"It was for Children's Week," Tommy said. "There are these totally unlucky orphans in this place called Shattrath. Shattrath's been abandoned for years, except as a thoroughfare for those weird death knights. I guess it's like their clubhouse now. But, the orphan matron -- she's old like you, Ms. Haberdash! -- gives you a pet for helping the orphans out for a little while. There's even a Dalaran matron, but she doesn't have a cool Willy like me!"

"I think that's enough for now, Tommy. Please, take your seat by bubble-hearth. Thank you for your presentation."

Name: Sleepy Willy
Type: Pet
How to get it: Complete your Shattrath quest for Children's Week
How to get rid of it: It's a pet. It takes up no inventory. It just kind of sits in your spellbook. But if you don't take it out and use it, it's going to rust.

FigurePets: A Croc, an Egg and a Willy?

FigurePets Bring out a Brand New Range of Adorable Non-Combat Pets!
Back in June I brought you the news that FigurePrints were bringing out a new range in their 3D printed collectable WoW models named FigurePets. The original line up featured a limited run of three non-combat pets: The Clockwork Rocket Bot, Stinker the Skunk, and Speedy the Turtle -- who was by far my favorite!

For the readers out there who were fortunate enough to get their hands on a set of the original FigurePets then you can attest to how awesome they really are -- these little guys rock! I've got mine standing in formation around my Kungen FigurePrint letting everyone who comes near my computer know that I am a WoW player (or should that be "playa?" It does sound far more "gangsta" that way).

So it gives me great pleasure to inform you that FigurePets are back with a brand new limited series of three new non-combat pets. The line up this time is as follows:

Breakfast Topic: Where have you taken your orphan?

Ok, admit it. Dornaa and Salandria are pretty cute. They say the darndest things and they are so tiny and they are like little bundles of irrepressible energy and now I want kids of my own, damn it. But seriously, If you're like me, you've probably kept your orphan whistle a little longer than you had to and took your orphan around a few extra places.

Auchindoun? The Dark Portal? Pff, c'mon kid. I'll show you some real fun. How about Karazhan? That was actually a lot of fun, although fighting Prince Malchezaar was sort of creepy, since Dornaa was staring at me through the whole fight as I stood with my back against the wall, tanking him. She looked sort of accusing. You don't suppose Mal was her dear uncle before the whole Eredar corruption thing, maybe? Unfortunately, I don't think you're allowed to take your orphan into the arenas, but I may have to take her for a tour of scenic Alterac Valley before the whistle disappears.

Seriously, I don't care how awesome Willy is, I just want to adopt Dornaa and keep her forever. She can keep Archmage Vargoth company on all my boss kills.

I know I'm not the only one who's done this. Orphan tours are probably some of the most random fun you can have in World of Warcraft with an annual event, I think. Where have you taken your orphan?

Around Azeroth: Big Willy

You all remember Sleepy Willy? He was one of the three pet rewards for doing the Children's Week quests. Show the Outland orphans all the war and carnage that infests the lands and in exchange for that touching moment, they give up their prize pet. I guess you never thought to ask where they got that pet, now did you? Dopervius of Impulse Raiders on the Stormrage realm has provided us the answer.

Do you have any unusual World of Warcraft images that are just collecting dust in your screenshots folder? Because we'd love to see it on Around Azeroth! Sharing your screenshot is as simple as e-mailing with a copy of your shot and a brief explanation of the scene. You could be featured here next!

Remember to include your player name, server and/or guild if you want it mentioned. We prefer full screen shots without the UI showing. And please, no more sunsets. This means you. I'm not kidding, yours is not the exception. No, really. Sigh.
