Arabic Sign

In Twilight Highlands, there are a series of quests where you help some dorfs chase away the Twilight cult. One of those quests takes you into a cellar to find some booze, and this sign is posted at the entrance of the cellar:


It's Arabic script, but I don't know what it says.

The top word is F-L-N-L.
The bottom word is a little harder. I can't really make out the first letter or two, but it then becomes N-Z-EE-AA-Q.

I have no idea what it says. I've spent the past few minutes Googling it and checking the WoW forums to see if there's an answer posted anywhere, but there isn't.

So off I go! To Farsidic.com. It's not Persian porno, I swear. It's a translator. You can enter in an English word, or a Persian one, and it will translate it into the other.

F-L-N-L isn't a real word, according to Farsidic. The Arabic translator I used said F-L-N-L is flanl, but it didn't tell me what flanl means. And before you get all smarty pants on me, it does not mean "flannel."

I think I'm just going to make a post on the WoW forums and ask. One of the devs has to know. After all, they're the ones who put it in there!

Plants vs Ghouls, the Sunflower Pet

In Hillsbrad, there is a little farm.


And on that farm, you can play the Warcraft version of Plants vs Zombies. It's tons of fun! But the best part about it is that you get a pet at the end.


The Singing Sunflower!

Dingty-Five

I finally dinged 85.


I was almost sad about it. I kinda rushed to 84 1/2 and then dingled around for a few days without really leveling. I don't know why I didn't want to max my level out, but I didn't.

Maybe because Suvia is leveling through Vash'jir right now and goddamn I hate that place.

But I think it's just because now that feeling of progression isn't going to be so noticeable. Sure, I can go get gear in dungeons or level my professions or archaeology or whatever, but none of those involve a blue bar at the bottom of the screen that noticeably moves all the time.

I guess it's time to go level an alt!

The Argent Grindy

Got my last Argent Tourney pet today, the Ammen Vale Lashling.


I got the Draenei pet last, for some reason. The other pets were just so cool! Even though I've forsaken them all for pets like Mr. Grubbs. :)

Vanity Pet: Withers

So, Withers is a little tree thinger. Kinda looks like the Teldrassil sprout.

Awwww.

Apparently, he is easily obtainable via a lengthy quest chain in Darkshore. I'm just glad it's not another rep grind. Booo rep grinds.

>update: Got him! I thought this was going to take longer, so I didn't plan for the next one... Well, I need to go Argent Tourney anyway, so those will be the next pets!
