After much (all right one time) whining from Marlokh about how his heirloom breastplate for his paladin is hot pink & how he needs a tabard to cover it up, I began the arduous task of choosing a guild tabard that will hopefully perform the task adequately. Keeping in mind that I am a girl and what I think is manly doesn’t always qualify as such I give you the new guild tabard:

Okay, not the best picture, but you get the idea. Get your guild tabard from this orc (it’ll be a badly washed gray until you put it on) & enjoy your more manly, respectable look. Nobody will know you’re wearing hot pink tops & fishnet stockings underneath!

Arrr, so tis’ Pirate Day this weekend. The 18th in game time, which works out t’ be roughly Sunday for us. Har’s the details from the official World o’ Warcraft site:

Type: Single-day holiday event
Date: September 19
Location: Booty Bay, Stranglethorn Vale

Yarrrr matey, it be Pirates’ Day! Commoners wearing pirate garb have appeared in all the world’s cities with the news that the Dread Captain DeMeza and her crew have landed in Booty Bay and declared it Pirates’ Day! If you are brave enough to share a drink with her, you may have what it takes to become an honorary crew member for the day. First, talk to any pirate commoner to receive a costume to help you get into the spirit of Pirates’ Day. Once appropriately attired, head down to Booty Bay to join in the fun. There, look for Dread Captain Demeza and her crew, who have taken over the roof of the Booty Bay bank and auction house. By talking to Captain DeMeza, players become an honorary crew member and transform into a pirate of their race and gender for 12 hours. This costume buff may be clicked off but persists through combat, mounting, death, and so on. Other highlights of the holiday include:

  • A large crowd of pirate revelers (“Dread Crew”) who dance, talk, eat, drink, laugh, and shoot fireworks. Ask Baron Revilgaz what he thinks of the visitors.
  • The Tauren First Mate Hapana and his giant South Seas assault parrot, Nyuni.
  • A trio of cannons and cannoneers who periodically fire out into the bay – at times, just barely missing the sails of the incoming transport. Those crazy corsairs.
  • Cap’n Slappy and Ol’ Chumbucket, two curiously-named pirates.
  • Lively pirate-themed music that plays upon the rooftop.

Ahoy, see you in game, argh! Ye’ll ne’er get me buried booty!*

Looks like the Rusted & Ironbound Proto-drakes will still be achievable for some time yet. Blizzard’s explanation of their change of heart was posted by Eyonix:

After further discussion, we decided not to remove the rusted and ironbound proto-drake rewards for the normal and heroic Glory of the Ulduar Raider meta achievements when patch 3.2, Call of the Crusade, launches, and currently have no plans to remove them in the foreseeable future. However, we will continue to evaluate the situation and if a decision is made to remove these rewards at any point in the future, we’ll provide a one month warning so players will have time to make some final attempts.

So there’s still time to try for them. The Glory of the Ulduar Raider is worth a shot I think & that will score you the Rusted one which I’ve always preferred anyway.
