    posted a message on Large Ogre Chain Armor

    During Warlords of DraenorLarge Ogre Chain Armor had a chance to be looted from the Level 3 Salvage Yard crate.  It is once again unobtainable due to Blizzard removing  Big Crate of Salvage and replacing it with  Large Crate of Salvage in the next expansion.  (Collectible BoE items can be a lucrative market, and regular BoE items could be vendored for gold or disenchanted.  Blizzard designers wanted players to move on to current content... and I must admit, gold generation via a player's garrison was a bit out of hand.)

    The model and skin is not unique, but if you are like me and must collect ALL THE THINGS then grab this chestpiece if you see it on the AH.

    Primary purpose appears to be to give the player a Well Fed buff appropriate to their class (or specialization, if a tank).  It can occasionally have vendor trash, and rarely have an AP token.

    This item can be listed on the Auction House.

    posted a message on Feasel the Muffin Thief

    This rare elite is a direct reference to Jeremy Feasel, a.k.a. @Muffinus on Twitter.  He is primarily responsible for designing the "secrets" in the game; thus, the name of  Carefully Hidden Muffin.  Previous references to Jeremy Feasel are Jeremy Feasel and Christoph VonFeasel.

    The strategy for defeating Feasel the Muffin Thief is very simple. Do not interrupt  Burrow.  Let him burrow and then run out in front of the visual effect of his Burrow.  This will knock you up in the air and deal some damage, but it will bring Feasel out from underground and stun him for 20 seconds.

    posted a message on Robert "Chance" Llore

    This NPC occasionally will leave his position and spawn Wintron who will kill any Pesky Bug in that vicinity.  This is the only time that the player may interact with him for a flavorful conversation.

     

    Robert "Chance" Llore:

    Hello. Nice to meet you.

     

    Player: What are you up to?

     

    Robert "Chance" Llore:

    This city has a bug problem. They're everywhere!

     

    I'm an engineer. An automation engineer to be exact. And I'm trying to help out a bit.

     

    Player: And who's this little fellow?

     

    Robert "Chance" Llore:

    This is Wintron!

     

    It seemed a bit tedious to walk around trying to find bugs one by one, so I made him to find them for me.

     

    Good little guy. Snorts a lot, but that's fine with me.

    Player: Need any help?

    Robert "Chance" Llore:
    Naw, Wintron can handle it.

     

    Thank you though!

     

    It was a pleasure meeting you.

    posted a message on Wintron

    Invented by Robert "Chance" Llore to exterminate Pesky Bug around Dalaran.  It shoots an arc of lightning at the targeted critter, frying them to death.  It has a nice model and makes adorable robot sounds (same as robot pets like  Warbot ).

     

    I need this pet, Blizzard. Need. It.

    posted a message on Shadow

    Shadow is a battle pet available for purchase from the Blizzard Shop for USD10 and EUR10, respectively.  It was introduced earlier than its initial target date in order to help raise money for hurricane disaster areas left by Hurricane Harvey and other major natural disasters around the world.

     

    The promotion e-mail itself reads, "Lost on Argus and overtaken by darkness, Shadow can shrug off the void just by being at your side. This latest World of Warcraft companion is an artful fox bound to use its cunning to shift its way through Shadow and Light directly into your heart and home.

    This new, color-changing World of Warcraft in-game pet is up for adoption now in the Blizzard Shop and in-game Shop, and for a limited time, when you purchase this playful companion, you'll be helping a great cause in the process.

    Due to recent natural disasters around the world—and the great needs of those affected—we've decided not to wait for BlizzCon 2017 to release this year's new charity pet. The immediacy of the events, including Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, flooding in South Asia, and countless other crises have shown we need to act now.

    For every Shadow pet purchased from now until December 31, 2017 , 100% of the adoption fee will be split equally between American Red Cross Disaster Relief and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) Disaster Relief Fund to assist with relief efforts around the world.

    You can also gift this cunning companion to a friend so you can save Argus together!"

    posted a message on Reinforce Light's Purchase

    For players like me who could not figure out why Alleria is nowhere to be found:  It is not phasing or any other issue.  This is, apparently, an area that alternates with another site as far as being "active."  If the area is destroyed... come back another day.  Do not drop the quest, as a few players have reported difficulty in reacquiring it.

    Also, it is possible to list this item on the Auction House.  I've never had much luck with buyers on my realms, though.

    posted a message on Shawn

    Shawn is located on a large floating island southeast of Forge Camp Fear's symbol on the zone map.  If you simply interact with him, there are no chat options.  You must target the NPC and use the /wave emote.  Shawn will wave back, signalling you've opened up the way to chat with him.

    Roleplay like you are the person he is waiting for, answer in the affirmative, and  Glowing Diamond Ring will appear in your inventory.  (You also make him a happy man in the process.)

     

    Shawn is the name of a security engineer for Blizzard Entertainment.  Both the NPC and the ring are references to him and his marriage proposal to his now-fiancée. (Source)
