Screenshot of the Week

Finally a new one.  Nothing really funny about this one, just an interesting shot of Randul being epic.

Extra tidbit

My hits went from an average of around 40 per day to a whopping 148 so far today.  I have no idea why.  Unless my stats page is broken, these visitors are coming from nowhere.  I had 2 referrers and no Search Inquiry referrals.  Odd.


Ever get that…weird feeling?

Like someone is trying to take advantage of you….sexually?

A little background on this Screenshot Story.  I was in Outland at level 80.  I’m not entirely sure why, but I certainly wasn’t there to run any instances with anyone, especially people I didn’t know.

All of a sudden I get a party invite from some guy that is standing next to me.  As you can see, my response in /say is “What?”.

His response?  “just follow me plz”  Um, no way buddy.  I’ve seen this movie, it doesn’t end well.

Obviously curious…I ask what he wants.  He can’t turn my skin into a Randul suit if I’m flying away right?

And of course, the best response ever.  “instnince”

To which I gave a fairly straight forward reply.

What’s the moral of the story here, kids?  Random WOW players are like the folks you might find in this van.

You are better off just leaving them alone.

Been a long time…

but I’m back.  Why was I gone?  A few reasons, really.  Swamped at work, swamped at home, having trouble getting my files from home to work and probably a little burnt out to be quite honest.  Not on the game, but  blogging.

Fact of the matter is, I just didn’t have anything to say.  My guild was in a bit of a pre-patch lull and nothing really interesting was going on.

Things, however, have changed.

My little 10-man guild has dropped 3 of the 4 bosses in Icecrown Citadel.  We are going to work on Saurfang tonight.  I believe we will drop him, but I’ll actually go in and try the fight before I make any sweeping proclamations.

We dropped Marrowgar the first week, you know, when he was hitting people like a train?  Yeah, our tanks are geared.

Then we wiped on Deathwhisper for the rest of the night.  We came back, however, and finally showed her who was boss.  As can be seen below:

Let’s be honest here, Deathwhispers little blue ball corpse doesn’t make for the best screenie.

Unfortunately, I forgot to get a screenshot of the gunship, but we actually one-shot something on our first attempt!  Craziness I know.

I did get an interesting shot of one of those random occurances that just blows your mind though.  I went afk while flying over Icecrown.  When I came back, I was being beat on by a frost wyrm while standing on this:

For those having trouble seeing, that’s me standing HIGH above the ground on a very thin piece of rock/bone/whatever.  Somehow, I managed to get dismounted by a Frost Wyrm while afk and luckily land on that thing.  One yard to the left or right and I’m splatter.

So I really like Icecrown.  It’s a fun raid so far.  I don’t love that they nerfed Marrowgar already, but I’m happy we did it before he became easy.  I figure we’ll see the difficulty go up quite a bit once the gates open, but for now I’m not finding ICC too hard.  Of course, I haven’t even attempted Saurfang yet.  Hopefully I won’t be singing a different tune tomorrow.

I present to you, the Dancing Gnomes.  Yeah, we’ve all seen something like this at one time or another, but this one really struck me as funny.  Sure the bear and tree dancing are humorous, but I think they actually take away from the overall effect of the gnomes.

As you can see, Randul had a front row seat to the show.

For this week’s screenie, I give you…the Falling Dead.  On a short jaunt from Darkshore to Menethil, something unforeseen happened.  I was disconnected.  Upon my return, Appolo, a Draenei Shaman I had on the Undermine server, had died.  He didn’t just die though, he decided to make his death as glorious as possible.  He spent the better part of half an hour falling through…well…nothing.

Upon examination of the image, you’ll see Appolo is currently falling through the sky somewhere over Highperch, which is in Thousand Needles.  However, I can see a brazier from Ironforge, not to mention my friend Gyuko and my wife Beatris who were both outside of Ironforge trying to res me at this point.

During the Hallows Eve festival I happened to be flying through Terrokar Forest after doing Sha’tari Skyguard dailies.  While looking around I noticed the sun, right behind me.  Enjoy.

I’ve decided to add a new feature to my blog, the Screen Shot of the Week.

For the innaugural SSotW, I give you….

Fandark’s Bubble Bath!


That would be Kered the Death Knight in the middle striking a pose.  The hawt Human on the right is my wife and the little Gnome in the middle is Fandark, Rogue extroardenaire and organizer of the event.  To the left we have the Human Rogue Katrit and the Draenei in the back is Reagan, guild Shadowpriest.  I can’t forget the party pooper with all his clothes on, our favorite Mage Lunityc.

In the future, I will probably post Screen Shot of the Week on Tuesdays.
