Earlier today while deleting some stuff on an 3-4 year old laptop, I came across a folder named “wow pics” hidden deep in my C:. Since I keep my PC as tidy as my surroundings (I call it organized mess), I’m not surprised I had forgotten about most of these pictures. I even found more of them as I dug deeper! Since this blog-thinga-majiggy is sorter supposed to be entertaining, I thought I’d share some of these old screenies and the stories behind them with you lot. If only I had the graphics card I got now back when I took some of these *sighs*.
This was taken during the Rend event i UBRS. It was my first time there and I was excited and curious about everything that I managed to get my self killed within a few seconds. The time spent on floor wasn’t a complete waste since I managed to take this funky screenie.
Zenjun with his beloved Twin Hakkari Warblades in Bloodhoof Village. I wanted these swords for so long that I still haven’t been able to sell them. Due to some weird bug I managed to snap a picture where he still holding the swords while sitting down.
This is probably my favorite screen shot ever. For those of you haven’t role played a lot, what you’re looking at is an addon called flagRSP. As you can tell, it enhances the player tool tip by letting you add a prefix and suffix name, plus physical description of your character. As you can tell, some people use this addon in a slightly disturbing way. Luckily this person doesn’t represent most RP’ers…
Another one that speaks for it’s self. I remember bursting out laughing when I noticed the question mark. I guess we can’t blame the poor NPC’s who have to stand around in the same spot all day.
Lastly, a picture that reminds me how Blizzard manages to add a fantastic atmosphere to the game during the holidays. I have never been a big fan of doing a lot of the holiday quests, but I do love Azeroth around Christmas time.
With this post I think I have yet again proven how big a geek I am. Stumbling over these old screen shots almost (only almost, mind you) reminded me of looking at old pictures from when you were younger. Oh well. That was my stroll down memory lane. Hope you enjoyed it. Now go scavenge for old screenies as well!
