I'm not seeing it... Nor do I think this is a specific reference to WoW.
Blades of Light....?
i don't get it......
Read it... repeated... continued looking... saw it... /facepalm'd.
Sko said the same thing! Am I the only one who ran Scarlet Monastery around here?
The last 20 or so times I ran SM, Herod didn't have time to say "Blades of Light"
How do we rate down blog posts? :)
"Blades of Light!"*cue ravager swinging.
A Google search for "blades of light" turns up several WoW guilds, the WoWWiki article on Herod, this HP page, a few Jedi references, and a LotRO guild.I remember the Arcanist Doan quotes better anyway. I would stealth in, beat his face, and stealth out 5 times an hour as a level 40-something druid enchanter. 2 shards at 10 gold each was a lot of money at that level.EDIT: No, he never did drop the ring.
I think someone is playing a little tooooooo much wow and is starting to see wow in everyday life. I see a padded room in your future :-p
You've got way too much WoW on your mind.
I'm a fairly casual player of WoW and I got this instantly AND found it - albeit only somewhat - amusing. I'd like to give the author of the blog post a little more credit.Could it be that people who played wow pre-BC (or at least before the major nurf to XP and instances) spent more time in SM leveling through the 30's?
Saw it instantly and smiled. Cute! :]
As far as other WoW references go, they're more often than not just the product of my WoW-centric mind. There's been stuff in the news about PETA and mammoths that would prove to be rather blatant triggers for those in Northrend, but even words like "shovelware" (in an article about the average quality of console games by console, or something) evokes in me images of herds of Shoveltusks in Howling Fjord. I suspect a similar mental mechanic is at work in you, Malgayne :P I bet we all dream about WoW all the time too.
Malgayne likes to run around the streets, wearing nothing but his underwear, shouting "GOLD PLS!"Malgayne wonders why all the hunters have the same pet when he walks through his local dog park.
... Must save that quote for later use.
