Mini Me

The lengths we go through for achievements. I didn't really NEED that achievement, it doesn't count towards the Loremaster achievement but I wanted it anyways. This achievement is amusing because you get shrunk (by a type of mushroom), drugged up (by 2 different mushrooms), and then blasted into the air (again by mushrooms). Notice a theme here? Mushrooms. Cute, seemingly innocent mushrooms.

In Deepholm, where we met the lovely Stone mother Therazane (see previous post), do the daily quest called "Fungal Fury" and get your daily dose of shrooms. Quest objectives- run around, destroy 10 "sprouting Crimson mushrooms" and earn 10G. (The easiest 10G you'll ever make in this game anyways.) Of course, avoid the killer mushroom giants and hostile mobs while doing so.

And while you're destroying the cute little mushrooms, watch out for the ones that blast you backwards into the air... into the waiting arms of hostile mobs. But the most fun shroom of all, the Shrinkshroom.

See how Beast towers over Ash. Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf~! Ash can run around and pretend she's in fairy land.

The cutest thing is, even your flying mount shrinks to your size when you're under the effects of the Shrinkshroom. Imagine an army of shrunken Horde toons running around screaming for blood.

The Ugliest NPC

When I started playing WoW, I didn't think anything in the game could possibly look ugly. Sure, the undead aren't the prettiest to look but then again, they're dead so they're not supposed to be pretty. Even then, I wouldn't go as far as to say they look ugly. I still think the human males look like farmers, they're a little rough around the edges but not ugly. (I like the way the male blood elves look.)

And then the females. Now the females of Azeroth are generally a good looking bunch. Even the Orcs and Trolls have some pretty good looking females wandering around. Which is why I was more than a little surprised when i saw this monstrosity.

No offense to the great stone mother but wow. Venus of Willendorf meet your evil twin who's having a really bad hair day... Therazane- The Stonemother.

As far as ugly goes, this is the ugliest I've seen on WoW yet.

From the word "Inconspicuous," I would assume something to be unremarkable in every way. Something that's so ordinary you'd walk past it without a second glance and you wouldn't remember it 5 seconds later.

Of course, with a name like "inconspicuous bear," it sticks out like a sore thumb. I found it so amusing I stopped in the middle of questing to take screen shots. Here's my favorite shot of the day:

2 inconspicuous bears sitting in front of a fire... probably complaining about their wives... and all the noob players trying to kill them. I can imagine how their conversation might sound... if they were to have one, anyways.

"So... how many times you died today, Bob?" asked Charlie, the inconspicuous bear on the left.
"Meh... not too many times, only 17 deaths so far." replied Bob with a nonchalant shrug.
"Lucky bastard, I've already respawned 82 times today. I'm just glad I spawned next to the fire this time, my back is killing me." Charlie sighs tiredly. Bob looks up and squares his shoulders with a long suffering sigh.
"Get ready for 83."

Welcome to the Machine

The people at Blizzard have an awesome sense of humor. This has got to be one of the most amusing quests I've come across yet.

One of the first quests Undead get when they enter Hillsbrad, High Executioner Darthalia gives "Welcome to the Machine." The player gets to play an NPC questgiver and gives out 3 quests. The 3rd NPC getting the quest from you is my favorite. Introducing Johnny Awesome- the epitome of a Male Blood Elf.

Some screenshots for your entertainment.

"Look at me, Peasant.

Now look at yourself.

Quickly, look back at me.

YES, this horse IS made out of STARS."

I LOVE IT... and Yes, I have a sparkly horse made of stars too.

Murderous Intent

Another variation of the M.I logo.

I have a feeling those bloodthirsty PVPers will appreciate this version of the logo. LoL.

For the Children of Murderous Intent

Back in the day when Murderous Intent was a small but happy little family and Ash's claim to fame (other than getting lost), was writing poetry for the guildies so they would give her better gear.

We are the children of Murderous Intent,
We heed our master's call.
"Givemhel" commanded he,
We go forth to conquer all.

Allies stood bravely to no avail,
They succomb to Warrior and dread.
Violentz rules throughout the land,
Ash marks the passsage of the dead.

The lash of the horde is swift and cruel,
None can flee from him.
To the walking dead, he calls.
To heaven scripture shows the way.

Givemhel = GM
Violentz, Warrior and Dreadlockd = Guild officers
Lash = Zolash
Scripture = GM's alt
Ash = C'est moi

Pumpkin, it's Hallow's End

Monday was the start of Hallow's End in the wonderful world of warcraft. Ash, being a sucker for vanity pets, is trying very hard to obtain a sinister squashling and a hallowed helm. If and when Ash manages to get those things, pictures will be posted. Many pictures will be posted because Ash has been trying all day today but no luck.

Why does Blizzard have to make it so hard to get those damn achievements?

On the bright side, Ash got a kick out of all the pumpkins popping up all over the place. Look at the mother of all pumpkins that Ash found in Undercity.

Yes, that tiny little thing near the bottom left is Ash.

One of the achievements for Hallow's End is to toss a pumpkin head on a character from each of the races found in wow. Because Ash has really bad hand-eye coordination, she ended up giving herself a pumpkin head but what the hell, it all works towards getting that achievement.

And of course, when Ash was looking for a gnome to throw a pumpkin at, there was none to be found anywhere. Typical. I think there were only 3 gnomes running around Dalaran and they were all being stalked by other players who were waiting to throw pumpkins at them. Today is the only time I was happy to see a gnome. Tricky little bastards are so tiny and they move so fast it's hard to click on them.

Ah well, 11 more days to finish up all the achievements for Hallow's End.
