I call this one “Pug Life.”
Also, that shark in the background should be very, very afraid.
I felt a little bad abandoning my dungeon group fight for a few seconds, but I had to get this perspective shot while some flames were going on.
Giant viking Dracula. Yup, this expansion has everything.
As expected with any new game or expansion, my screenshot folder is filling up with random snaps of my adventures around World of Warcraft: Legion. So let’s purge them into a blog post (that’s how purging works, right?), starting with this pic of my Death Knight chilling in Highmountain before a boss mob spawns on top of my head.
I don’t know if these are a new design, but I love the look of these deep undersea-style murlocs. Again, I would totally play a murloc character if given the chance. MAKE THAT HAPPEN BLIZZARD.
Highmountain was a fun zone, reminded me a lot visually of summer camp (a Native American-slash-cow themed one, at least). I thought this was a cool shot looking down the hill at the center lodge.
Me on the right, getting to play one exciting mission as a murloc… before the game cruelly took that away from me. MRGGHHBBBLLEE!
This big bad villain does not approve of any life choices that you have made to date.
There’s a wee bit of a height difference between Highmountain and its neighboring zone. I got a smidge of vertigo looking down at all of this. And yes, of course I jumped off, because why not? Wish I had a glider, that would have been epic.
Taking a rope bridge up to the highest peak in the zone. I just liked the perspective on this one and the blowing snow across the summit.
Moved on to Val’Sharah last night. Very lush and lots of great opportunities for picture-taking. Here’s me peeking out from inside a cave.
Lonely elf, all alone. Nobody likes you, elf! Nobody will eat with you! Because you’re an elf!
I love how blasé everyone is in this world about the transportation system. I’m riding a druid who turned himself into a stag, passing by a player riding a T. Rex. Totally normal.
Oooh, the majestic unicorns. How graceful… they will look, stuffed and mounted in my undead lair.
I am not a total monster, of course. I came upon this bear cub sitting in the remains of its slaughtered family and saved it. It’s now my best friend. I call him Elf-Eater.
Otherwise titled, “Someone at Blizzard got paid to create this.”
Exploring Dalaran, I came across this… tapestry? in a toy store. It instantly became my favorite thing in the game, bar none.
Maybe it’s the Elf screaming in terror as she flees the flames.
Or the Orc downing a cold one without a care in the world.
Or very possibly the giant sasquatch that’s chowing down on a unicorn.
I love it. So much. Probably going to make it my desktop wallpaper.
This came in the mail yesterday — a WildStar orchestra cue, autographed by composer Jeff Kurtenacker. Or, judging by the signature, “Doff Ktril.” Either way, it’s one of the coolest pieces of MMO memorobilia that I own. I think I’ll need to frame it!
You know me and you know that I throw emoji frowny faces at the presence and use of lockboxes in MMOs. I’m not going to spend real money on them, but if there’s a way to earn them in-game or get one for free, why not? Free stuff is free stuff.
So I’ve been accruing a lot of bonus Funcom points in The Secret World thanks to my grandmaster sub. I have nothing left that I really want to buy, so those points are just sitting there, waiting in vain for the next mission pack to come along. I don’t feel bad blowing a wad of them, then, on the new retro-themed costume packs (along with a few of the other packs, just because I was curious).
I was pretty pleased to get a wide assortment of goofy costume bits, including Terminator glasses (now with glowing red eye!), a headband, legwarmers, one of the tackiest jackets ever (not shown), and my favorite, a neon fanny pack:
ALL HAIL THE FANNY PACK. It brings any outfit together.
I also got a pair of dogs — one fire rescue Dalmation and one police K-9 doggy. Considering that I still have a hypnotic C’thulu as a pet, none of these stand a chance at being used regularly, but still, nice to have.
