Counting to 18

The other day, while levelling my Monk, I logged out without first mogging her booties.

As you’re aware, Gnomes have only four fingers per hand. This is deemed normal.

But her bare feet revealed unto me an oddity.

Toes

Count ‘em. Ten little toesies.

I’m sure I’m not the first to notice, but this is my first time, and it’s weirding me out.

It’s probably too late for you

orlee-the-guard

Behold this image of one Orlee, female Draenai protection Warrior.  If you notice something a bit off, it’s because she just /salute’d one of the roving Thief Catchers on Volunteer Guardsman day or whatever it’s called.  As I understand it, this appearance is good for one day only, so if you’re reading this, it’s probably too late for you.

Definitely too late for you Euros over there.

I haven’t the means, but I would kill to witness a 25-man raid consisting of people that /salute’d Dwarven guardsmen on this day before going into battle. It would be AWESOME.

It turns out that if you’re hanging out in one of the cities while thus transformed, you may get attacked by random “city attackers” or something like that. These are randomly generated mobs that exist just to make things interesting for you. You know, city guardsmen getting beat on by nasty Hordies, that sort of thing.

This happens irritatingly often, such as when you’re in the bank trying to sort out upgrades.

So, yeah, it this “micro” holiday was about making me feel the guardsmen’s pain, I AM ALL IN.

DING

Legion Flying

…. and that’s flying in Legion.  Did it on the Priest this time, because efficiency is for chumps. Apparently.

Don’t I know you from somewhere?

Raethan

I just have this feeling that somewhere, Jong’s ears are burning.

Legion Alchemy makes me Sad

challenge acceptedIn general, Legion professions leave me with a simmering rage directed at the asshole that thinks that hiding even the most basic crafting recipes behind dungeon bosses is “fun”.

But the person that thought that hiding Alchemy basic progression behind an OPTIONAL boss should be punished by never being able to complete anything that isn’t locked behind LF* on the worst servers of all time.

I will settle for that person’s liver, in a jar.

I thought that WoW professions had hit a new low in Draenor.  Somebody at Blizzard must have noticed and said “Challenge accepted”, because this expansion has topped the previous in every way when it comes to making professions suck, with one minor exception – that being, you can wear more than three crafted items at once.

Nevertheless, even the most basic of Alchemy recipes beyond the Alchemy 101 spells you get as a result of setting foot in Dalaran are locked behind an optional boss, Grimoira. From my experience, the only way to down this  boss is to be an asshole and start the fight even if your LFD group has moved on. And  hope you don’t get kicked.

SRS … if anyone needs this boss and needs a DPS contributor, please LMK. I’ll group with Atilla the Hun at this point.

You know they like you by the way they yell at you

Jandvik

The gentleman in the middle is the innkeeper in Jandvik, which is in Suramar, of all places. When you engage him to purchase items, he greets you with such cheerful epithets as “I spit on you!” or “Sniveling pig!”.  And when you’re done, he send you on your way with a jaunty “And don’t come back!” or a simple “Begone!”

I’m sure this is considered the pinnacle of manners in Valarjar society.
