For people who know me, this might come as a sort of “Tum is me and I am Tum” kind of screenshot. However that is not what I was aiming for with this particular image to start February’s Screenshot A Day. No, dear reader, this is me…swimming.
You see, while I’m by no means a great swimmer in the real world that does not stop me in Azeroth. Any time I can’t get somewhere in particular, I hit the water and go. The shot above was me in the Krasarang Wilds trying to get to the Dread Wastes. I hadn’t found any quests at that point, so off I went.
Another favourite was back before Cataclysm when Alliance players did not automatically receive a flight path from Theramore Isle down to Gadgetzan. I saw that I could circle through Dustwallow Marsh and Thousand Needles before finally getting there, but I dove headfirst into the water and off I went. I remember in the case of Siori I did it because she was too low to be summoned to Zul’Furrak and wanted the run anyway. Magik and his friends at the time couldn’t believe I was serious when I said I was swimming there, but they did agree in the end it was probably faster.
So this very much is me. If I don’t know a way, I will find a way. And most often, that way involves the nearest body of water.
