More eggs of the Easter kind

I am sure this is nothing new to people who scout out for such stuff but a guildie just found out that in the Dalaran sewers’ arena circles the later to be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are receiving training from a wizened rat:

If you leveled any character in vanilla WoW I am sure you remember fondly of the Darrowshire questline, that started by the ghost of little Pamela Redpath. The inventory icon of her doll must have been the single creepiest drawing in game at that time. Now with the Culling of Statholme event in the Caverns of Time you can find the whole Redpath family, all of them alive still, on the second story of the inn. Pamela even has the infamous doll on the bed:

While browsing wowhead.com for links I also stumbled upon this masterpiece; a player named Cranius was so inspired by the Darrowshire questline that he made a music video with an original song telling the tale of the Redpaths. Now seriously, you can claim that most MMO players are mindless addicts, but gems like this video prove that it’s not all about wasting time in front of a computer screen… if you ask me.

pvc – return

One of the guild members in pvc is studying films. He set out to make a movie, and just recently shared this teaser with us. I think it’s quite epic. Only if I was his editor I’d change the taglines a bit. Nevertheless, pjn‘s pvc – return (teaser):

Sidenotes: That Patchwerk kill was quite epic, half the raid dead and Alice, our healer, moonfiring PW to death. And we worked quite hard to finally see Malygos drop to the void like that.

They shoot horses

What if Mila Kunis was your healer in a heroic, huh? It could happen, if you’re alliance… (By the way, why do people choose poser alliance all the time? I mean, Felicia plays a gnome… eww…) What’s with the healing? I just have a hunch she’s a priest. Maybe a mage. But definitely a clothie. Anyway, if you dear readers haven’t already, go watch Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Also raise your hand if you wouldn’t notice it’s her speaking on Vent.

Christmas Egg

This post is dedicated to Nora, a fangirl of unexplainable levels. :)

Yesterday Relani told me that she found a hatch in Scholazar Basin and I went to investigate. The screenshots speak for themselves:

WotLK

This post holds little information for non-WoW players.

The reason I haven’t posted in more than a week is that the expansion to World of Warcraft came out. I have spent enough time in front of the computer as it was, and didn’t have the motivation to blog really.

It’s also the fact that I kind of like the changes and improvements WotLK brought. The new areas are breathtaking, instances included. Just flying around and observing is great fun. Also the new quests and places to explore are a welcome change from the umpteenth dungeon run or raid.

I started off with Silq, my warrior. However what begun as checking out the new hero class, evolved into a complete change of plans and now I’m leveling my death knight, Milq, instead. To be honest I was caught right on the character selection screen when I saw the looks…

Other than playing a bit more than usual there really is nothing happening around here. Same classes, same boredom, same frustrations.

Redshift: Pursuit

A BlizzCon nominee for Best Drama. I really like the creativity and the ingenious use of game resources behind the movie. It feels like a real one. If you’ve ever played WoW, it’s worth to check out.

WoW flash minigame

Tapír csiripelte, nekem meg leesett az állam. Durva mit ki lehet hozni a flashből azért. Nekem a szénné hackelt, 64 bites böngészőbe ágyazott 32 bites flashen a kurzor szaggatott, mint Mari néni a nokedlit, de a MacBook rendesen vitte. A készítők szerint erősen a flash határait feszegetik a játékkal.

The Boy And The Moose

Na tessék, miért hasznos ha a gyerek WoWozik: World of Warcraft Skills Save Boy From Moose

Kiscsávó sétál az erdőben a hugával amikor találkoznak egy jávorszarvassal. A srác rögtön élesíti frissen megszerzett játékbeli tudását és letauntolja a szarvast némi kiabálással a hugiról, majd amikor a leányzó már biztonságban van feign death-el. Klasszikus. Az állat pedig simán bevette a dolgot és békén hagyta mindkettőjüket. :mrgreen:

Ezt követő chat:

(02:26:22 PM) darkelf2k5: de hibas mert ha FDzel akkor a moose-nak ra kellett volna mennie a kiscsajra :P
(02:26:48 PM) SeSam: ő már addigra kint volt combatból :D

Activision Blizzard

Video game giants in $18bn merger, azaz összeáll a Bilzz és az Activision. Hallottam pesszimista véleményeket a dologról, de mivel a pénz nagyobbik fele a Blizzardtól jön, valamint mivel – ahogyan eddig is – a főrészvényes a Vivendi lesz, sokminden nem hiszem hogy változna. Hátha lesz pénz új hörcsögökre a szervertermekben… :mrgreen:

Ezzel kapcsolatban kiváló bejegyzés van Isolde blogjában: Most akkor én kérdezek. A kommentek is roppant érdekesek, WoW játékosoknak ajánlott olvasmány.
