A New Use for a WoW Plushie
comment 2 Written by on March 11, 2010 – 9:30 am

WoW plushies are awesome. Sometimes they come with in-game pets. Sometimes they mrrgl in your mailbox. But by and large, beyond their awesomeness, nerdiness, and amazing desk decoration ability, they don’t have a lot of actual function. Which is to say, they’re just plushies.

Until now, that is.

I was talking to Linedan yesterday, and he mentioned that his wife had come up with a new and absolutely brilliant use for her wind rider plushie. She had given him some very stylin’ new jewelry: a pretty ribbon necklace – in Horde Red, of course – with a beautiful Authenticator pendant. Now not only does her wind rider have an extremely high quotient of awesome, she will never lose her authenticator again.

I decided, on hearing this, it was time for Murky to start pulling his own weight around here:

And he’s now stylin’ with an Authenticator necklace of his own.

He’s no longer just a plushie – he’s The Powerful Protector of Anna’s WoW Account! (I’m told having an official title makes the job sound impressive. Considering he’s been putting on airs all day, and ordering around the little frog that usually sits on my desk, it’s working. I would get him a spear, but I fear for my eyeballs.)

If you don’t have an authenticator, you really should consider getting one (that link is for the US version, this one is for the non-US authenticator). They’re inexpensive (or free for some smartphones), easy to use, and while they don’t completely safeguard your account (due to a new middleman virus that’s been making the rounds on some of the addon websites), they provide one more hoop to jump through for someone who wishes to steal your account.

As with anything, there is nothing foolproof to a truly dedicated fool, but account security is a major issue in WoW right now, due to the lucrative nature of WoW accounts and the ability to sell virtual stuff for real life money, and taking the steps to avoid a compromised account is very important.

A Quick Hello

To everyone stopping by from WoW.com’s Daily Quest.

I hope you like what you see, peruse the articles in the sidebar and the story archive, and maybe come back another day to read something else. This week has been a little slow, due to Real Life Invasions (impending babies mean I’m doing a lot of knitting, houseguests this weekend, and Arrens working days = RP at night instead of writing posts!) but there will be a little something more substantial up later today!

Enjoy!

[Rirri]: OH GODS WHAT IF IT’S /THAT/ PLAGUE AGAIN
[Rirri]: … I can’t give myself the plague, right?

[Rirri2]: … right. No. You can’t, don’t be dumb.

[Rirri]: … yeah but… like… just in case? Can I carry some kind of talisman? What about a potion?

[Rirri2]: … You’re being paranoid.

[Rirri]: I’m allowed to be paranoid. What happens if I get the plague again? I can’t DIE again. BUT IF HE WINS AGAIN? OH GODS.

[Rirri2]: You’re hopeless.

The cathedral bells stop ringing overnight, except for chiming the hours. Three bell strikes, and Angoleth padded softly around another corner of the Cathedral District, staying carefully in the shadows. Trained ears picked up Mogget’s soft breathing – nearly inaudible …
