April Fools from Blizzard; Meet Crabby and Omgsogoth
Sat, 04/02/2011 - 4:24am — monochromacer
And sooo here we go again with Blizzard's yearly edition of April Fools. In celebration of the holiday (it's a holiday?) for the peasants that easily fall for the most scheming or most obvious of pranks, the company had no plans of celebrating it quietly as they introduce to us one hell of an annoying crab that looks like Microsoft Word's paperclip helper, Crabby, and a new instance that eats, speaks, and breathes emo allover, the Tomb of Immortal Darkness. To be honest though, this has got to be the lamest one yet, it's too obvious. But it's still a nice way to celebrate the festive occasion.
Introducing Crabby the Dungeon Helper, Blizzard's version of Microsoft's demented, un-exitable Paperclip helper. Crabby is a deceptively cute little critter that provide dungeon-mongers with tips and tricks when facing the demented creatures of heroic dungeons. Nothing like a cuddly little crab that pops on the lower right portion of your screen whenever you need them, eh? Oh, and the crab also appears at the World of Warcraft website. As to how long it'll be up there remains unknown.
"Crabby uses a complex and extensive set of context-sensitive situational heuristics to analyze your current status in real-time; that's tech talk for "Crabby always knows what's up." He watches your every move with his all-seeing eyes. Nothing escapes his unwavering gaze; not even the slightest nuance of your play style goes unnoticed. Before long, Crabby will know what you're going to do before you even do it. And he will use this knowledge to help."
Talk about a creepy stalker, huh?
Tomb of Immortal Darkness is a new dungeon instance beneath the tombstones of Duskwood's Raven Hill Cemetery. How it happened, well let's just say a blind guy got jealous of everyone who can see so he casted an eternal darkness spell in his lair. And what can we see in this new dungeon? Nothing. The instance is pitch black, leaving nothing to be seen. And if ever you managed to brave through the nothingness, you'll face of with the Dark Lord of Twilight himself, Omgsogoth (lol).
So how can we enter this instance? No, you can't find it in the Random Dungeon Finder. All you have to do is use a flying mount, fly over to Raven Hills, and realize that it's just a joke.
"Making use of cutting-edge Deep Dark® technology, the Tomb of Immortal Darkness is a new five-player normal and heroic dungeon that will be introduced in patch 4.1.11. Three new bosses, with unique features and mechanics, will put your group to the test: Omgsogoth, Dark Lord of Twilight; the maniacal Twisted Spiral Fool; and Duc Ulah, The Winged Keeper. Featuring new daily quests, updated monster models, and all-new unique loot, you’ll find you really can’t believe your eyes…"
