I couldn’t wait to make the Elekk Plushie battle pet, and as soon as I had 50 hexcloth I immediately
wasted used them on that. And he’s cute… until you summon him. Then he’s just creepy.
He doesn’t move, see, and that’s the problem. He just sort of stands there, staring at you with those pink button eyes. And then you move, and he stays where he was, and you forget all about him… until you stop again somewhere and suddenly he’s there, right behind you, staring at you with those pink button eyes.
It ain’t natural, I tells ya.
I would like for these to be tameable because my hunter wants one. I’m more of a cat-person in WoW, but these guys are super cute. (Yes, I have a couple of the non-ghostly ones from the Plaguelands.)
I would also like for my Warlock to have ghostly form all the time, because it’s super cool. Kthxbai.
Every now and then I check various stats on this blog, especially the search terms that bring people here because those are usually worth a laugh. Today, I’m puzzled (among other things) to note that of the top 10 search terms of all time, only 3 are related to games (two, technically, since two of those are variants on the number ’13’); and the top term by far is for a game I only ever wrote ONE post about. A short one at that, linking to an actual post on Gamasutra.
Weird search terms are weird. And people coming here from their searches almost certainly don’t find what they were looking for. That makes me feel a bit better, actually. /Schadenfreude
Just to prove that I’m not lying when I say I’m a perma-noob — I’ve done the quest in the screenshot three times already and NOT ONCE did I notice the 4th ingredient in the top right (the quest doesn’t necessarily use all four possible ingredients). It was only after my druid failed three times to get the ‘glowy’ ingredient that I, puzzled that none of the three ingredients were working, went and checked the quest out on WoWHead.
If I’d been a bit less of a noob I’d have remembered that the previous quest had me gather four ingredients to make that potion with. Duh.
Forget pepper jack, magic jack or lumberjack — all the best people use COMMANDOJACK!
Riding my Shinri “mount” in Shadowmoon Valley. I should have known that was too easy a kill to reward an actual mount (it’s a 10-second directable mount-ride useable only in SMV with a 1-hour cooldown)…
For those who remember that excruciatingly slow tour of Shattrath on the heels of Khadgar’s orange grape, losing it half the time because it clipped through floors and walls…
Now it’s giving excruciatingly slow tours of player garrisons. Just as long as I’m not the one having to follow it, it’s all good.
