What with all the screenshot challenges floating around, I’m sort of playing catch up but here’s days 2 through 5 of Tycertank’s November “A Screenshot A Day”.
Day 2: I did this today
Cast sideways glances at the Human King, that’s what I did today. It turns out he’s quite partial to long walks on the beach, followed by a spot of slaughtering Orcs to get the blood really pumping. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination but put it this way, it’s not just Hilda’s horns which waggle!!!!
Day 3: P is for
Party!!!! which is precisely what this gentleman is doing. Clearly he was so impressed by Dulca’s awesome Mistweaver DPS, he just can’t stop dancing.
Day 4: Table
Is it marginally arrogant on Blizzard’s part to have their NPCS playing Hearthstone? Maybe but I have to admit I rather like the board.
Day 5: I collect
Gnomes. Cute little Gnomes with awesome names. In fact I’m working on amassing an entire army of them so that we can put this into practice.

Three years ago, Angelya suggested a screenshot challenge with a difference. Instead of writing 50 000 words, why not post 50 screenshots within the month of November. This year, the reins have been passed to Jojo but other than that, nothing has changed.
I did briefly consider doing this and Tycertank’s a Screenshot a Day in tandem and then that little taunting Gnome voice which lurks in my subconscious decided screw it, it’s all or nothing.
So for my first submissions, I’d like to present the following shots, all roughly linked by the colour purple.
Picture #1 – A Wolf howling at two moons
Picture #2 – A rainy day in the City of Purple Dreams
Picture #3 – Escaping from a tunnel into Winterspring
Picture #4 – Bloodelves up to no good in Netherstorm
Picture #5 – Purple crystals

In a moment of possible madness I decided to attempt Tycertank’s November challenge.
Today’s prompt is “Fruit”.

Day 27 – WTF
That really is one dedicated mount.
Day 28 – 10 o’clock
10 am the other day saw me parked up here in a lake of blood hoping that the fickle Gods of RNG would favour me. As it turned out they didn’t but I still love the shot.
Day 29 – Gold
On the second last day of the September challenge it seems fitting to show my golden Dragon that I won in the August version of this screen shot challenge. Thank you again.

It’s always been the detail of WoW which has acted as it’s biggest draw to me. The little twists and turns hidden in plain sight, the things which make you smile over again and again.
Finding a cave entrance lurking below the water’s edge is exciting enough.
Discovering ghost pirates hiding within even better.
Slaughtering said spectral sea dogs and then stealing their treasure adds the extra icing on the cake (which you can do once a week). They can also drop spectral grog which makes you dead like them.
However when you return the following day expecting an empty cave or just plain and simple hostile pirates, it’s lovely touch to find them neutral and hanging out inspecting their booty.

Today’s prompt is Season.
Now this time of year actually happens to be my favourite. That slow slide into autumn, golden leaves falling from the trees, toffee apples and Halloween.
For my shot, I thought I’d pick that somewhat forgotten and neglected Blizzard festival, Harvest which as it happens is taking place right now.

I’ve been spending quite a bit of time here over the last couple of days and I’m still trying to figure out whether I loathe the place or whether it’s tackiness is growing on me.
On the plus side it’s perpetual sunset is beautiful and it’s full of pointless vanity items which I’m a great fan of. Should I ever get another character to 90, they will have access to a full set of 496 loot the second they ding. Evermaw also kindly gave me a token to create a lv 535 piece which was rather friendly of him and Mr Harpy got a cloud serpent mount off a rather dashing looking Dragon (it’s just a shame he can’t ride it on his main). We’re almost so loaded down with shinies, we’re bloated with it. It makes the previous loot pinatas of WoW look decidedly second rate in comparison and there in lies the problem.
Handing stuff out this easy always makes me worried. It’s like we’re being fattened up for the sacrifice. The most frustrating bit (other than the fact that someone has always just done the Neverending Spritewood two seconds before I get there) is the rep grind. I can quite honestly say I hate that Emperor with a passion. He might have defeated the Shas of Anger, Violence and Hatred but now he’s probably about to help resurrect them once again using the combined negative thoughts of everyone on that Isle grinding mobs in his name. There needs to be more spawns, a lot more spawns just so you don’t feel guilty pouncing on the next mob two seconds before some little Gnome would have tagged it.
The fact that there are ghost pirates does help though.

Day 9 – On the Wall (of Karazhan). Okay this doesn’t totally meet the brief because it’s an alcove in the wall as opposed to on it but I like it.
Day 10 – Today’s prompt is Sweet, something the Gilneans are famous for.

Today’s prompt is White.
This isn’t a new shot but given that I love all three elements, the mount, the mini pet and the zone, I decided I was going to post it anyway.
To balance that out, I thought I’d post a picture with white elements that I took today.
This is a seagull sitting on our neighbour’s roof, looking out over the village and planning whatever seagulls plan.

Today’s prompt is “Getting Read” and that’s just what this screenshot is crying out for, someone to sit and read their way through this lot.
If I existed in the game world, I suspect that on breaching karazhan, I would get distracted right about now.
