Around Azeroth, Beta Edition: Wreck-It Rexxar

"So a word of advice when dealing with Rexxar: pet haters need not apply," writes beta tester Riyahnasheed. "The local Iron Horde didn't really seem to grasp this message. This may be related to the spontaneous appearance of numerous size 18 boot prints on the backsides of the orcs who had been holding Nisha captive." I'd be more scared of the giant angry bird than Rexxar, even if he is the Horde's version of Chuck Norris. (Insert Barrens chat joke here.)

Around Azeroth, Beta Edition: Birdhouse in your soul

"I am a rogue. Master of stealth, poisoner of blades, stealer of purses and lives," writes beta tester Roycroft of Has Candy on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "Like a cat, I move unseen, ready to spring, with fists full of knives. And there's a bird on my head. A cute little bird. On my head. (No rogues or birds were hurt in the taking of this picture.)"

Around Azeroth, Beta Edition: I shall call him Mini-Me

Beta tester Nikolatesla of Bauhaus on Proudmoore (US-A) was working on the aptly-named quest "Going Undercover" in Shadowmoon Valley the other day when he noticed a bit of a flaw in the orc disguise he was given. Fortunately, as a mage, he was able to give himself a quick Arcane Brilliance boost and come up with a story involving an affair with an alchemist's wife that led to a shrinking potion being slipped into his coffee. Now he's just got to think of a reasonable explanation for why he's carrying forty orc teeth from Ashran in his pack.

Around Azeroth: The scourge of the shallows

"There are more dangerous things than sharks in these waters," writes submitter Forgemaster of Decoden on Aszune (EU-H). "Like a certain goblin warrior. Fortunately for everyone else, her mohawk announces her presence, allowing beasts and humanoids time to get out of the way." A rogue goblin infesting a peaceful lake? We're gonna need a smaller boat.

Around Azeroth, Beta Edition: In tent city

My daddy always told me that you can't make money selling just one thing. "Be an equipment repairman, or a honor points vendor, or even an auctioneer," he said. "But don't ever just open a store that only sells one thing." His experiences owning an ice cream truck in Dun Morogh had soured him on the idea of specialization. But I knew that someday there would be a great need for my services. And today is that day. Crazy Achmed's Tent Emporium is going to be a gold mine in Warlords of Draenor. Wait and see. (Thanks to submitter Falwin of Anima on Wildhammer [EU-A] for this screenshot!)

Around Azeroth, Beta Edition: Under construction

Beta tester Riyahnasheed put in a work order to upgrade the stables at her garrison, but neglected to advise the construction workers that the premises had not been vacated prior to their arrival. At least put your mounts in the basement before the builders arrive! Instead, her Armored Skyscreamer went on a rampage that left four dead, twelve injured, and Riyahnasheed permanently blacklisted from all contractors in the greater Draenor area.

Around Azeroth, Beta Edition: All flights out of Nethergarde have been cancelled

Beta tester Dorelei of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A) was hanging around Nethergarde Keep when some Iron Horde mages decided to cause a transportation delay by setting the gryphons on fire. They didn't seem to mind it too much. After all, it's not like they had any means to escape the flames, such as wings attached to their backs. Preposterous! And thus were born the new phoenix-manned flight paths.

Around Azeroth, Beta Edition: That's no moon ... wait, maybe it is a moon

""Fly me to the moon and let me play amongst the stars. Let me see what spring is like on Azeroth and Mars," sings submitter Gimmlette of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "With some minor apologizes to Bart Howard, I'm submitting this screenshot of the night (night!!!) sky in Shadowmoon Valley. We've been asking, for years, for night and it has been delivered, at least in Shadowmoon. Look at the abundance of stars. I remember, when we quested in Hellfire, someone asked what planet it was that we could see in the sky and I believe the answer was Azeroth. So, I'm wondering, is that what we see here? Is this an early Azeroth about the time of, say, Warcraft III, or is this some other place? Whatever it is, it's beautiful. I can't wait for the return of night if it's half as dramatic in Azeroth as it is in Shadowmoon Valley."

Around Azeroth, Beta Editon: That's why it's called a beta

"It might look as though Luinn of Lex Talionis on Wyrmrest Accord (US-H) won a fabulous prize at the Darkmoon Faire, but that's not the case," writes Luinn's beta testing clone. "While taming a cute, TINY, baby riverbeast in Talador, it unexpectedly inflated to epic proportions. It's not just a pet, it's a bouncy castle! Luinn just worries how he is going to feed little Cletus without going bankrupt."

Around Azeroth: Because that's where the money is

"Really, what's a Mad Genius to do?" asks submitter, crazy cat lady and aspiring bank robber Quadratic of Gnomeregan Forever on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "I drink the Horrific Transformation Potion, I get the Insane Angry Robot that fires laser cannons all ready to explode ... and I STILL can't manage to properly rob a bank. Really. You'd think that these pandaren are just used to us Mad Evil Geniuses trying to rob their bank."

Around Azeroth, Beta Edition: Most tedious quest ever

"Hold it! Stop the war! Don't anybody move! Thrall dropped a contact lens," reports beta tester LibFeathers. She didn't mention it specifically, but I'm sure the follow-up quest to find the thing with a vacuum cleaner and a pair of pantyhose was a joy. "The beta is revealing all sorts of secrets about Thrall. His vision is horrible, and he really has no hair. Guess those long beautiful braids were just a wig." And Jaina will be sobbing alone in her bedroom tonight at that revelation.

Around Azeroth: Like a Trojan horse, except much lazier

"My Alliance flex team (mostly Elemental Expeditions, but also with several other guilds) decided to try a new tactic tonight to get inside the gates of Orgrimmar," writes submitter Ketlan of Terra Incognita on Cenarion Circle (US-A). "It didn't quite work the way we hoped, although we made a rather impressive Sky Golem conga line through the middle of the Valley of Strength."

Around Azeroth: Battle without honor or humanity

"About eighteen months you were kind enough to feature a little motivational poster I put together for my guild with an 8-bit-style rendition of our struggle against Elegon," writes Stormscythe of The Splintered Hand on Turalyon (EU-A). "Well, I've done a few more since then, but when we finally beat Garrosh after weeks of hard work and more wipes than I'd care to count, I wanted to do something a bit different to celebrate our ultimate victory in the enigmatic land of Pandaria." Anyone want to translate the characters at the sides?

Around Azeroth: Purple haze

The stats on the legendary cloaks might become outdated once Warlords of Draenor drops, but I'm willing to bet that they'll be a stable in transmog sets for years to come. Submitter Lynorah of Gquit on Earthen Ring (US-H) combined her Xing-Ho cloak, Tyrael's Charger and our old friend Shadowform to create this lovely screenshot. She needs to be careful, though -- the tendrils from her cloak and mount look like they could get caught on an outcropping and cause a nasty crash.

Around Azeroth: Metamorphosis is dead, long live Metamorphosis

"Okay, demon hunting didn't really work for tanking after all," writes submitter Demonmoose of The Outcast on The Maelstrom (EU-A). "It took me a few weeks to get a rez. Never use trash souls for self-preservation. Despite doing everything to find a purpose for it other then leveling, I failed. and now it's dead. I guess Illidan was right after all: We were not prepared."
