The Machinima About the Vale That I Can’t Make

Vale of Eternal Blossoms

Blue, blue caravan
Winding down to the valley of lights

Vale of Eternal Blossoms

My true love is a man
Who would hold me for ten thousand nights
In the wild, wild wailing of wind

He’s a house ‘neath a soft yellow moon

Tavern in the Mists

So blue, blue caravan
Won’t you carry me down to him soon

Blue, blue caravan
Won’t you drive away all of these tears
For my true love is a man
That I haven’t seen in years

Wrathion

He said,
“Go where you have to,
For I belong to you until my dying day”

Wrathion

So like a fool, blue caravan, I believed him
And I walked away

Vale of Eternal Blossoms

Oh, my blue, blue caravan
The highway is my great wall

Vale of Eternal Blossoms

For my true love is a man
Who never existed at all

Not What He Seems

Oh, he was a beautiful fiction
I invented to keep out the cold
But now, my blue, blue caravan
I can feel my heart growing old

Vale of Eternal Blossoms

Oh, my blue, blue caravan
I can feel my heart growing old

Vale of Eternal Blossoms

You know that glyph where your party members can use your Stag form as a mount?  Daschela somewhat regrets letting Fel buy her that.  SHE STILL HAS HER DIGNITY, DAMMIT!

I also had an unexpected conundrum in a LFD group.  I queued Daschela up as a healer, only to find that our tank was named something terrible!

Wait, let me pretend to RP as a night elf here. Ok, we’re good.

Speaking of Dungeon Finder, Alexalis was chatting with her party members on the challenges faced by Forsaken monks – specifically, how your toes might fall off when performing Spinning Crane Kick.  Then this conversation came about:

Awkward: Faux Pas Edition

From what I hear, the latest blogging topic is faux pas, those events/actions/etc. that are otherwise known as moments of glory in a most ironic way.  This sort of thing is my life.

Faux Pas #1: Staying Together is for Wimps

Well, That's Awkward

Well, That’s Awkward
Jaina, Healer, Tank and THE LICH KING OMG on one side.
All three DPS? On the other.

Faux Pas #2: THE MORE YOU SHOUT IT THE MORE EFFECTIVE IT IS

Strand of the Ancients Strategy

Faux Pas #3: Assuming the Other Person Can Handle It

Alone on the Farm

Yes, leave the inexperienced mage by herself.

Faux Pas #4: Don’t Think of the Children

The Story of Mazz

The Story of Mazz
I expected her kids to magically despawn or something.
WRONG! They ran around guilt tripping me.

Faux Pas #5: Situational Awareness is Key

Um, Ow

Um, Ow
I’m not sure the orc saw THAT coming.

Faux Pas #6: Talking to Strangers About Your Family

We Literally DIAF

Sometimes, it’s better not to know.

Faux Pas #7: It’s on Cooldown, But We Won’t Need it Anyway

Cooldown LOLZ

It’s all about the timing.

Faux Pas #8: Unintentionally Close Encounters

Yeah, this is totally fair.

Goblin Starting Zone

Goblin Starting Zone is the best!
Bite me, Valley of Trials!

I think I said a while back that I wasn’t going to post any of the ideas you have when you drink Kaja-cola.  I changed my mind!

The Hidden Side of Silvermoon

The Hidden Side of Silvermoon
Apparently, only RPers know of this.

Did you know that the Tailoring shop in Silvermoon City runs on leper gnome labor?  This guy’s minion even goes around whipping them (although one of them doesn’t seem to care, he always goes back to sleep).  Do you think leper gnomes are still sane enough to care?  If not, I need to get some for my Rocket Camel assembly line.

Blackwing Lair

Blackwing Lair
Black dragons make bad business partners.

None of my goblins understand why any self-respecting, profit-inclined sentient being would ally his/her/itself with the black dragonflight or anything Twilighty.  There isn’t a whole lot of gold in the end of the world, people, because the gold will cease to exist!  There’s probably lots to be made in extending the end of the world, but the black dragonflight isn’t exactly into that.  Besides, they’ll just kill you and take your money anyway.  (Plus, working conditions almost always suck, because they have a thing for fire.)

Unfortunately, none of the goblins in Blackwing Lair seemed interested, so Therm, Caliverne and Shao gave them another reason why allying with crazydestructive dragons is a bad idea: people who aren’t aligned with said creatures will kill you.  Either way, you end up broke and dead.

Oh Sheeyit Screenshots: Did I mention I take a lot of these?

Map Quest /punny!

If you ignore the large statue,
I like the fountain.

While Niremere has absolutely no problem with a stone-faced Varian Wrynn staring at everything forever, I am personally not so fond of that part.  But if you subtract that, the fountain is a very nice place to be.  I also like the vaulted ceilings in the  Keep:

Vaults

Vaulted Ceiling
Yes, I look at this sort of stuff.

Architecture!  Excuse me while I sit here and ponder whether those ornamental columns are marble or whatever the Azerothian equivalent is.  Back Horde-side, Thermalix has toyed with the idea of stealing the flames from Alliance capital cities:

They will NEVER see me coming.

They will NEVER see me coming.
Ok, once they killed the mage, they did.

So far, all she’s done is follow one mage into Exodar, then high-tail it out of there on a camel when said mage made too many friends and bit the dust.  I expect she did not die because the sight of a goblin on a camel was probably a bit much for the Exodar NPCs.  You have to stop laughing before you can aim!

All’s Fair in Booty Bay

While looking for iron ore on Niremere, I ran into Caliverne.  We /emoted each other into the Salty tavern and had a drink.  What?  What happens in Booty Bay stays in Booty Bay!  (Or so the advertising campaign says, anyway.)

Never underestimate the power of seafood.

We were having a lot of trouble hitting the button that day.  And yes, when it became clear we were going to wipe, I jumped.  Sadly, the temple gets wider about halfway down, so I didn’t make it all the way to the ground.
