Happy Turkey day, everyone! I’m especially thankful to all of the readers who contributed pictures of their Moonkin. The turnout was greater than I anticipated, especially given how generally healing-oriented Resto4Life is! Thank you! And now, without further ado, here are the 2008 Turkey Day submissions:
|Adremma of Sentinels (US) sends in the first of many examples of the improved quest coding that allows Druids to complete most quests while retaining their shapeshifted form! Personally, when I complete this quest, I’m going to do so in Tree of Life so that it looks like a yeti carrying firewood! Then again, maybe that’s not such a good idea!|
|Aedos of Aggramar (EU) is seen here chilling out with her undead buddy, Frosty, after defeating a Frost Drake in Dragonblight. If Frosty seems a little heftier than normal, it’s because Aedos has been feeding him a diet of Papa Hummel’s Old Fashioned Pet Biscuits. The hope being that a vegetarian diet will prevent Frosty from instead developing a taste for Turkey!|
|Not wanting BRK to have all the pet-related fun, Bellwether of 4 Haelz has managed to acquire her own pet, this one a Ravager. She aspires to even greater heights, though, admitting that what she really wants is a rhino! Just imagine the ground tremors from a Moonkin and a rhino!|
|Copey of Dunemaul (US) fixes a non-traditional Turkey Day feast by serving himself alongside fresh seafood. Now who’s going to tell the butterball that he’s already golden brown?|
|Flash of Moonfire author Hana of Skywall (US) takes to the sky in Harry’s Bomber, no doubt on a mission to exact revenge on those who mocked her stubby wings in grade school!|
|Hibiscus of Terokkar (US), soon-to-be mother of two baby Boomkin||A mysterious contributor, John, sends this snapshot of his Boomkin traveling overland. Poor Mistsaber!||Marikel of Scarlet Crusade (US) learns the hard way that
Moonkin can’t fly.
|Enjoying her new-found firepower, Nurowyn of Kilrogg (US) struts her stuff out in the Grizzly Hills. The two native Imperial Eagles seem less than impressed by her lack of avian dignity.|
|Here my Warlock guildmate Miaja has lured me into a dangerous trap, intending to enjoy a delectable Turkey Day dinner at my expense! Who can really blame her, though? After all, in Moonkin Form, I’m bigger than Hansel and Gretel put together!|
|Despite the extreme cold of Northrend causing her feathers stick together, Riverwish looks poised to throw a Starfire (or maybe a snowball) at yet one more quest mob. Fortunately, she persevered through the wind and snow to level 80 and is now happily back in Tree of Life, snuggling by the fire in Dalaran inn (though hopefully not too close).|
|Set for 600 Degrees and
Roast for 9 hours
|Teranin of Skywall (US)
is a Master of the Drumsticks!
|Charging into battle aboard
an engineered tank, Teranin
gives whole new meaning to
the term “Panzerkin”!
|Glyph of Thorns author Thorn sets out on a Paul Revere-esque ride across the frozen tundras of Northrend, likely yelling “THE PILGRIMS ARE COMING!” and fleeing certain demise.|
|A common theme this year appears to be a celebration of the ability to ride all manner of mounts — and, in some cases, quest mobs. Here Tauren Druid Roseline of Dreadmaul (US) is seen galloping across Dragonblight astride a Blood Elf Paladin’s mount of all things!|
|Wise Fox submits this picture of his cunning method of avoiding becoming a turkey dinner!||After this, Wise Fox will NEVER AGAIN lose his raid slot to a Mage!||From this gory shot of cannibalism, I think Muffinator thought this
was a Halloween contest!
