Post Your Amusements!

Postby Nikachelle » Sun Dec 18, 2011 8:54 pm

This is was sort of mentioned in passing in another thread and a few others were interested in a thread like this. It's generally when we have something we think is amusing and want to share it but it usually doesn't fit into the Successes or Frustrations thread. (So... don't use this to post annoying LFR groups, etc.)

And here's mine from today's raid (not the dkp stuff) - apparently not everyone thinks the new paladin tier looks amazing:

I'm pretty sure, and you can correct me if I'm wrong-- but everybody who doesn't like the paladin tier is a doo-doo-head.

I don't mind the shoulders, but the chest doesn't quite look right. Also, that hideous belt kinda makes it look like your toon is wearing pregnancy pants.

Back in the Ulduar days, we had a raider ask extremely politely and calmly over vent if she could have a few minutes as a Moose was eating her flowers. It became a bit of a running joke :)

LOL bang on the money there.

I do wish that for once they'd make the belt to match the paladin tier (not the healing belt...) and the warriors would be the ones stuck wearing the mismatched gear.

Never gonna happen, but Transmog is there to fix that.
I've been using T4 to complete T13 where I don't have the part. It works well enough, though the belt and boots really look low-res.

Eff transmog. I like to actually display the gear I'm wearing - even if it does clash.

One of my oldest female wow friends remarked over vent during our Karazhan days after taking down Romeo and Juliet in the Opera Event that she hoped like her we were all ready for some back door action.

Hilarity ensued.

On Mumble during a particularly frantic 10 seconds on Baleroc last night:

"Who's got this crystal?"
"Torment refreshed, someone else get it"
"I think Buiden has it"
"Okay, who's up after him?"
"Hey, Kim Jong-il is dead!"
"I've got it"
"Wait, what?"

I wish I had recordings of our first M'uru kill. The attempts leading up to it heavily involved the discussion of muffins and the validity of various plural alternatives for "moose."

We had a many minute long discussion on the proper way to pronounce "root" a few months back/

One of the people I used to raid with lives in Melbourne. She has a long-haired cat that gets quite uncomfortable in the summer heat, so each summer the pussycat gets shaved.

The humour pretty much writes itself.

Oh, and one of those "I couldn't resist" moments in /trade yesterday:

Random person: I am going to shave my head in February to show my support for cancer patients.
Random person: And I am sitting on my hair :(
Me: Sounds like you should shave your ass too, then... Sorry, couldn't resist :)

Random pretty shot (maybe I should label this thread "Post Your Amusements" instead...

Logged in for an Ulduar raid one morning to find my guild had lined up all nice and pretty. Oddly enough, it's not my habit to log out while on a mount in mid-air, so the timing on this was a bit unexpected!

I used to DI my wife in intentionally bad situations to avoid repair bills while making her eat them. Case in point:
Image

During TBC Consecration used to help me make really pretty patterns with trash. Why so srs?
Image

My favorite screenshot(I no longer have the original, unshrunk version) involved our guild's first attempts to kill Leotheras wherein I was the tank for the "human" part of the fight. During one wipe, one of our Shaman stayed MC'd after the reset (Failed to kill his Demon), and ran back and reset on top of the channelers who'd respawned. We tried summoning him out, but he aggro'd and we ultimately had to kill him so we could rez him.
Image

I also used to be quite fond of Hyjal trash, and ripping aggro off the other tank without taunting.

I should browse my memories folder, got quite a few of those.

For now I'll post an epic fail of my GM trying to be funny in TBC (he was a rogue)

Back in the Kara days when the Soul Essences were used for craftables, this girl I used to play with asked the rest of us to unload our Essence for her chest.

As a gm/rl of a guild where a disproportionate ratio of our best players are Asian, I laughed heartily.

Another reason to never go AFK in our raids, especially if you're a dwarf/gnome.
