Well I kinda got myself in a pickle today with professions. I used up all my cloth for Tailoring, so I have none left for First Aid. I tried to buy some but there's only one stack up for 4000g, pretty insane. I also tried to farm some but every spot I picked seemed to have a drop rate of 20% or worse. Igh.
I also tried Cooking and I had nine tokens to purchase recipes. Then I stupidly tried to do the "buyback" trick for the crate of meat and lost 2 tokens. Apparently that little bug is fixed now, heh. So now I have to wait 2 more days to get enough tokens for the recipes I need. After that I tried Inscription and got stuck at 500 on a genuine bug with the Runescroll of Fortitude II - it's not giving skill points. I just can't win today.
So I'm reaching into my bag of tricks to bring you some fun stuff I've found in the Beta. This is just some random screenshots I've taken over the past few months that haven't made it into a post.
I love these guys! They patrol an area in southern Silverpine Forest, near the border with Hillsbrad. This "disguise" cracks me up :) I got lucky a few days ago and found some of them recreating near a fire. Too funny!
Here's another completely useless and oddball picture I took. I believe this sign is either in Azshara or Thousand Needles. Sorry, I was flying all over the past few days so I can't be sure where I found it. You can't tell from this, but it's actually animated. Weird huh?
This is a picture of the magic lamp made by Enchanters (upper left). I was going to make one at some point, but I got lucky and found one in Stormwind. Dang thing makes my warrior look like a shrimp!
This is a screenshot my daughter took in Blackrock Caverns. She thought his tooltip was adorable...
I discovered this "cube" NPC while traveling through Feralas for Archaeology. At least she's got a name, she'll always have that.
This NPC offers two of the cutest quests I've seen so far in WoW. Click the picture to read the text that goes with it. If you see her in Mount Hyjal you have to stop. Unless you're a hard-hearted beast who abhors cuteness. There's also the bonus that she looks great - I keep asking Blizzard to give us a dryad form for healy druids. I'll take this one :)
Did I mention she's freakin' huge?? I couldn't resist sharing the other quest page. The quest text cracks me up - whoever wrote it needs a raise.
Last one - I took a screenshot of this server message because I thought it was funny. We rarely see the Devs and GMs showing much personality, so I enjoyed this "call to arms".
*** UPDATE ***
I'm so sorry, I forgot one of my favorite pics!! Check this out:
Most importantly - the tooltip on the buff!
Yes, it's me!!
Here's another pic. This is a new item from Herbalism. Each time you use a Lifegiving Seed, you get transformed into a random herb! So awesome =)
