Screenshot(s) Sunday: Quick, Lassie! Syrana’s Stuck in the Well!

Last week’s recap

There were some great guesses for the location of the grave (with escaping skeleton) from last Sunday’s screenshot.  However, no one got close enough!  It was a tough one, I know.  There wasn’t much in the shot to give away the surroundings.  It’s actually from Sholazar Basin!  Yup! On the western coast (beyond the Maker’s Perch) on the Stormwright Shelf.  I came across the little graveyard while doing one of the Oracle dailies.

Introducing…

A couple days ago, it was quite embarrassing when I had to type into guild chat:

stuckinwellconvo1Yep.  I was working on the cooking daily in Dalaran.  Good ol’ psychedelic mushroom meatloaf.  After grabbing my chilled meat from the bank, I went to hop down the well for a quick shot into the sewer.  Except for one problem.

I got stuck.

At first I thought maybe it had something to do with the big ass Zhevra I was trying to wedge down there with me.

So I dismounted.

But I was still stuck.  Floating in the well.  Too low to climb out, too high to touch the sewer floor.  When I dismounted, my minion, Maagrom, disappeared into the depths…. of hell apparently, because I heard the “chink!” of his soul shard being regifted to me.  (Which you can actually see when that occurs in the above conversation.)

So, I thought I’d bring to you, the lovely series of images associated with my being stuck.  Oh, and yes, there were comments in gchat comparing me to Winnie the Pooh getting stuck in Rabbit’s hole after eating up the honey.  -.-

Looks like a safe well to shimmy down through...

My trusty Zhevra and I begin our descent through the well to enter the Dalaran sewers.

What the! We're stuck. And boy does it look dark down there....
What the! We’re stuck. And boy does it look dark down there….
Looking up towards the top, I begin to call for help, but no one answers my cries.

So then I had to hearth and land, what, 20 feet away?  I still had to go into the sewers to pick ‘shrooms, but I decided to take a different route this time.

    It was quite funny…there was nothing that we could do to help you get unstuck. Another fun moment in guild chat with helpful hints and references!

    Nice Screenies! I love taking pictures of Glitches! Fulguralis & I took TONS of SS’s of a bird glitch that allowed us to have around 20 birds following us around until we died.

    I’m glad that Lassie came in to save you!

    @Keli – I am glad you all were amused by my plight 😛

    @Fuu – There are certainly some interesting an odd glitches that happen from time to time that just look ridiculous! And of course, gotta SS, otherwise it didn’t happen 😉

    If that happens again? Just log out and back in. You’ll fall through. 🙂 It’s happened to me many, many times.

    Very funny! And that lassie comment is comedy gold. I think I’ll be steering clear of the well from now on.

    @Solarya – If you do go near the well, be sure to tie a rope around your waist and to a guildie! 😉
