Horrify enemies with hordes of angry spiders

Horrify enemies with hordes of angry spiders
I guess if there is one good way to take an enemy down, you can't really argue the fun of simply disgusting them to death. I hate spiders -- the spiders in Warcraft vary from fuzzy and vaguely non-threatening to full-out spindly-legged menaces that I keenly wish I could stomp underfoot without a second thought. So when I heard about this interesting toy hiding the in Krasarang Wilds, I had to decide whether it was really worth it to pick it up, or whether I should simply leave it be.

But there's something to be said about suddenly having the ability to summon a horde of angry spiders on your enemies out of the blue. Sure, they're disgusting, they're creepy, they're crawly, and terrifying in the most primal of fashions, but the ability to unleash them on unsuspecting foes is pretty cool. So how do you go about getting a horde of angry baby spiders?

By picking up an egg sac from their much angrier mother, of course. Ick!

Don't tell Scotty -- but go ahead and murder him to steal his visage

The marvelous adventures of Scotty the sprite
I am reasonably certain that sprites in World of Warcraft are the stuff of nightmares. Rather than being the adorable little pixies the name indicates, the sprites of Azeroth are strange little demonic leaf-beasts. I would not want to wake up in the middle of the night and see one of these things looming over me. Heck, I wouldn't want to encounter one in broad daylight, either.

But just because the sprites of Azeroth are unsettling, it doesn't mean you can't have some fun with them. And perhaps because they are slightly unnerving, having the ability to turn into one of these creepy little twerps at a whim is actually pretty cool. I'm of the opinion that if you have a chance to startle the heck out of a guildmate, you might as well take it. Which is why I was delighted to find Scotty the sprite.

Scotty, on the other hand, was not quite so happy to see me.

Frolicking merrily with Martar the Not-So-Smart

Frolicking merrily with Martar the NotSoSmart
Have you ever wondered, while you were wandering the lush forest of Pandaria, what it would be like to have a constant companion at your side? A friend to share the scenery with, someone to reassure you that in the end, everything will be all right? Someone who looks up to you as the triumphant hero that you are, impressed by your various exploits across Azeroth and beyond? Someone to snuggle with on those particularly cold nights at the heights of Kun-Lai Summit?

I'm terribly sorry, but you're out of luck. But we do have a different sort of companion for you -- the kind that interjects with silly catchphrases while he's merrily pulling half the hostile wildlife to your side. The kind that stares down the face of danger without fear, only the empty eyes of one who has taken one too many blows to the head, tongue dangling wildly from the corner of his mouth as a gobbet of drool lazily grazes his cheek.

His name is Martar. He's not-so-smart. But he'll tag along with you if you know where to find him.

Gok'lokk's Shell brings beauty to Pandaria

Good times in WoW Grabbing Gok'lokk's Shell
Mists of Pandaria has introduced a tremendous amount of fun vanity items, more so than any expansion before. So many in fact, that many players are begging for a vanity item tab that works much the same way as the pet and mount tabs that were added at the end of Burning Crusade. After all, when you find something that does something cool to your character, you automatically want to keep it.

And when it's something truly odd, you want to use it at every possible opportunity. Imagine this: you're in the latest iteration of LFR. A tank has just left the group, and everyone is standing around waiting for a replacement to appear. Suddenly, you are assaulted with the sight of a muscular green orc, proudly standing in his underwear atop a clam shell a la Birth of Venus. He flexes. You boggle. And you think to yourself, where on earth do I get this thing because I need it immediately?

It's Gokk'lok's Shell, and it's surprisingly easy to get, once you know where to look for it.
