Around Azeroth: Life isn't fair

Hey! Link! You have seventy-two hours left until the moon comes down and destroys Termina. Actually, this picture is from something I hate only slightly less than Majora's Mask -- a saronite node stuck in the air. We've had a ton of variations on the floating-minerals theme submitted, but Nakhama of <Armistice> on Azshara manages to capture the perfect pose of excitement turning to despair.

Around Azeroth: Season of the witch

Did you really believe that the Ember Clutch was created by a bunch of fire-breathing proto-dragons? Pshaw. That's just what they want you to think. In reality, Akrasia of Steamwheedle Cartel-EU got a little too careless with her Arcane Missiles, and what was once a thriving forest is now a bunch of very large matchsticks. Remember, kids, as the Rabid Brown Bear says, only you can prevent forest fires. At least that's what I think he says. It's hard to understand him through all the foaming at the mouth and chewing on my leg.

Around Azeroth: The eye of the universe


The aptly named Lightbright of <Night Renegades> on Baelgun sent in this screenshot a while back, accompanied only by the warning "Do not eat all the herbs you gather in Northrend!" Sage advice, although Lightbright appears to be having a pretty good time, just chilling out in the middle of the galaxy or wherever he's at. I think this is what happens when you look directly at a solar eclipse. Those white spots aren't stars; they're holes burned into your eyes by radiation. (Note to science nerds: yes, I know this is not what happens during an eclipse. Work with me here.)

Around Azeroth: The great race


You know you've been waiting too long for new content when you start organizing events like this one. "It's been a long-standing tradition of my guild to run level 1 naked gnome/dwarf races, or as we call them, "nakkid" races," writes Baddad of <Survivors of the Storm> on Madoran. "The goal is to run from Dun Morogh into Ironforge, through the Deeprun Tram (players can take the tram and it's often VERY funny to watch someone just barely miss the tram and fall into the pit) and then through the gates of Stormwind." That's Baddad refereeing in the middle with his impartial Felguard advisor. He adds that in this particular race, first place went to Nenet, with Tiberiusll as runner-up and Sycosimp taking the bronze.

Around Azeroth: River deep, mountain high


Deathtoes of <Wrath of Honor> on Argent Dawn is attempting to live up to his name in this screenshot, as he prepares to take a leap into oblivion. Don't do it, Deathtoes! You have so much to unlive for! Of course, being a gnome, he could just be testing out whether the wings attached to his helmet are functioning or not. Gnomish engineering: a great career for those who survive.

Around Azeroth: Elemental fury


Considering the headaches and sheer frustration involved in running even the most well-disciplined raid group, you've got to admire Mathirin of <The Blackguard> on Wyrmrest Accord. According to our submitter, Oesah, Mathirin has been shepherding multiple cross-guild groups through old world and Burning Crusade raid content. Oesah sent in this picture from a recent successful Archimonde raid, which seems to be heavy on the shamans. Way to go!

Around Azeroth: Battle of the BlizzCons


Xtoferal of <Order of Valtiel> on Ravencrest writes, "After a server restart forced our 10-man Ulduar group to take a break before we fought Auriaya, as we were logging back in and waiting to regroup, I decided to pull out my handy Murloc costume. Another member of the raid summoned his pet Murky. Jealous because I wish I had that pet, I tried to show off by dancing. But Murky was having none of that. He ignored me the entire time. Sadness."

Around Azeroth: Kind of blue


This is just a nice little character portrait of Blood Elf Death Knight Valanar in Icecrown. Death knights blend in well with the ice and blue of Northrend, but I can't help thinking about how silly they look in, say, Stranglethorn Vale. Pale, deathlike skin, brightly glowing eyes, and thick armor with spikes are not ideal for wandering around a jungle hunting down tigers.

Around Azeroth: And it stoned me


Do any of you old-school Final Fantasy types remember the spell Break? It was supposed to inflict the status "Petrify" on your enemies, turning them to stone. But just like Blind, Confuse, Doom and Toad, it never seemed to work quite as well on opponents as it worked on your character. Bonaduce of <Swords for Hire> on Quel'dorei has discovered the root of the problem. It seems that status-effect-inducing spells tend to jump through space and time to land in other games entirely. This particular petrification spell is hitting a dwarf in an Ironforge basement here in 2009, but it was really cast at a Veil Dancer in Zozo back in 1995. By me.

Around Azeroth: Care and feeding of the Core Hound


No, you cannot go out for a walkie right now. I know you have to take a widdle -- I know that all too well, considering you flooded half this cell last night when you were dreaming about the Stonewrought Dam. But we have to stay in here until the Random Number Generator pulls up your name to fight a group. Then we can both get out of here, you can utilize the restroom, and I can wait until the group kills you and then finally eat your succulent hell-beast flesh. What? Oh, I said that I can wait until the group pets you and eat a succulent piece of tofu. That's right. That's what I said.

(Thanks to Kaandemiro of <Order of Shadows> on the Forgotten Coast, who managed to find humor in his accidental entrapment behind Lavanthor's cage portal in the Violet Hold.

Around Azeroth: Compensating for something?

Ahinawee of <Cue Ominous Music> on Skywall has some strange habits. "While posing for our guild's first kill of Thorim, I noticed that he had a pretty short skirt," he writes. "With some weird curiousity, I started to tilt the camera up. You can see the result on the screenshot. Maybe we now know why Sif left him."

Around Azeroth: The Sith lord


Hey, I can't wait for The Old Republic either, but this might be going too far. Demonicwiz of <No Bull> on Eonar showed his commitment to the Dark Side by enchanting his Argent Avenger with Demonslaying, creating a red lightsaber. He then added a hood and robe to complete his ensemble. Now if only we could make a double-bladed purple saber ....

Around Azeroth: Cruising for a bruising


Hey! You! Scarlet Crusade girl! Take a look over here. That's right. Look at what I did to your pal with my mighty wand. This small stick of cedar and glass will be the doom of all who inhabit this chapel. Look upon me and ... oh. That's kind of a big sword. A big, sharp sword. How can you even lift it? So anyway, I'm here to make a donation to your fine ministry. Would all my gold be sufficient? Okay, I'm just going to drop it on the floor and take off. I ... uh ... left my kitchen on fire. Have a nice day!

(Thanks to Anthony for the screenshot! He adds that his mage massacred the Scarlets while leveling his wand skill to 400.)

Around Azeroth: Mmm ... bacon


As we all know, bacon is the candy of meats, making everything a little better. Unfortunately, there's only one type of bacon in WoW -- the quest reward Hellfire Bacon. So our characters can only eat twenty pieces of bacon, ever, in their entire life. Luckily, Imika of <Enigma> on Windrunner has come up with a fine solution to this problem. When Horde members approach this feast, the ring of bombs around it will explode, searing both the ham and the intruder into light, crispy perfecton. Then a local rogue cuts thin slices of meat from their bellies and leaves it to hang, and voila! Not only do you have bacon, but you've got a decent supply of Fjord Fried Orc and Sentient Beef Liver for the next time you crave something unusual.

Around Azeroth: Storm across the sea


Our anonymous submitter sent in this picture titled "Baddest Shammy Screenshot Ever!" and I've got to agree with him there. It's always nice when character screenshots end up looking like something that should be part of a cinematic. Anyway, he writes that this effect was caused by the use of Thunderstorm while Water Walking. Hmm. I'm sure that goes against National Weather Service recommendations. If you see an elemental shaman in the area, get to shore and seek shelter immediately!
