Happy New Year, folks! Let’s hope your 2012 does not involve getting shot down over the enemy’s capital city. “I needed to sprinkle snowflakes on a troll hunter for Winter Veil, so I headed over to conduct an aerial scouting run of Orgrimmar,” writes submitter Furfacedfred of Four Lights on Malfurion (US-A). “Luckily for me, the gunners manning Orgrimmar’s ground-to-air defenses were substituting enthusiasm and color for accuracy, though the Wind Rider patrols turned out to be a bunch of Scrooges.”

We’ve seen a lot of landscape tours of Azeroth; it’s a favorite subject for fans and machinimists alike. Beautiful Azeroth caught tipster Simon’s eye when it appeared over at Kotaku Australia. With such a gorgeous video making the rounds, there’s no way we could ignore it.

Beautiful Azeroth is intended to be a series. This first episode offers a sterling view of Kalimdor, soaring over the wreckage and growing copses with a reverent eye. The background music by Clannad doesn’t hurt, either. I suppose if any single artist really captures the heart of Kalimdor, it’d be Clannad or Enya.


Interested in the wide world of machinima? We have new movies every weekday here on WoW Moviewatch! Have suggestions for machinima we ought to feature? Toss us an email at moviewatch@wowinsider.com.

Anyone else remember the Arrested Development episode where Tobias dresses up as a giant mole and attacks a fake town? Of course you do. If everyone on the internet who loves Arrested Development watched it when it was on, the damn thing would have never been cancelled. And now the same thing is happening with Community! When will we learn from history?

Anyway. Tangent over. “After sneaking in to the tonk battle arena, I decided to put the ‘wrath’ back into Dragonwrath and terrorize the town,” writes submitter Dark Dragon. “Once the Darkmoon Faire called their security, the guards mistook me for the real thing, and now they’re looking to put me in their zoo enclosure.”

Naeem of Sporebat on Bloodscalp (US-H) furtively attempts to decorate his Winter Veil tree while his felhunter stands guard against any encroaching Alliance. Admittedly, at level 34, Naeem doesn’t have much of a chance against any opponents, but perhaps the holiday season will lead to a sudden display of basic human decency and no one will gank him. Heh. A ceasefire on a PvP server? That would truly be a Christmas miracle.

After stumbling upon a Scarlet Crusade encampment in the Eastern Plaguelands, submitter Seb suffered a fate worse than death — the loss of his beloved Mechano-Hog to the Crusader brutes. They drove it all the way from Tyr’s Hand to Booty Bay and didn’t even bother to change the oil! Do they know how much it costs to replace one of those things? Eradicators of the undead menace? Hah! They’re nothing more than common street thieves.

Hey! You adventurers! Get off my lawn! You’re tracking the snow into my cave. Ehhh. The adventurers were prettier back in the day. And this reindeer isn’t as delicious as it used to be. I remember back in 2004, when that reindeer was just ripe for the pickin’. But now the Demmycrats are back in power and everything’s gone to hell. Oh, I miss that winter. I had tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time … (Thanks to Oofu of Silverfel on Blackhand [US-A] for the screenshot!)

A few observations on The Abominable Greench’s stash, photographed by the intrepid Kittens of The Den on Earthen Ring (EU-A):

  1. It looks like Greatfather Winter ran out of holiday-themed wrapping paper and started just skinning animals and wrapping presents in fur. A couple of boxes also appear to be demon-themed, and one present is locked, just to be a jerk to people without rogue friends.
  2. We need more trees decorated with functional swords and axes in real life. It looks a lot more hardcore than angels and popcorn strings.
  3. Judging by the broken ornaments on the cave floor and my own experience with household pets and Christmas trees, that guilty-looking wind-up corgi and robot may be responsible for more damage than the Greench himself.

As longtime readers may now, on some Sundays we like to expand the scope of Around Azeroth a bit. And although this picture doesn’t show off any technical brilliance or beautiful scenery, it did make me laugh. Alizabal: She hates you, and you hate her too! You have to wonder, if Baradin Hold was a prison, why did they let one of its most dangerous prisoners hold onto her six enormous swords? Or did they have them in storage for when she got out? (Thanks to Venoxum of Elegant Nightmares on Icecrown [US-A] for this demotivational poster!)

No wonder Deathwing has been such a crank lately! The other aspects have trapped him in a pool of quicksand, and a bunch of raiders are trying to stomp on his left hand. All the black dragon wants to do is soak in his giant hot tub and practice playing his invisible piano — but no, you and that silly orc had to interrupt him. Now the world must burn! (Thanks to Loronar of Dark Days on Eredar [US-A] for this eagle’s eye picture of the Madness of Deathwing encounter!)

While farming Basilisk Livers in Deepholm, the well-coordinated priestess Chelley of Tichondrius (US-A) was mistaken for one of the local crystal pillars by an errant dragon and served as a brief, fleshy perch. One quick trip to the transmogrifier later, and Chelley managed to get the claw marks and blood out of her shoulderpads. Finally, Azeroth has a functional dry cleaner!
