Minipost: Archmage Vargoth's SECRET IDENTITY!


Our Resto Shaman Muckbug has the amusing habit of chugging Potions of Illusion during our raid nights, which can lead to some very funny situations. If you've never seen a bear furiously healing your raid with bite and claw animations, you haven't truly lived.

Now, I've written about my good buddy Image of Archmage Vargoth before, and I always carry the staff around so I can pop him out to visit, to pose for kill shots, etc. Well this weekend we were doing a Blackwing Descent run to get people their remaining Tier 11 tokens, and suddenly I had a brainstorm. If the Potion of Illusion just requires a nearby target to imitate, maybe Muckbug could imitate Vargoth and heal as the Archmage!

So I summoned Vargoth and we all backed away in anticipation...only to see Muckbug transform not into the familiar Kirin Tor magus, but...a tuxedo-wearing, monacle-sporting Goblin.


Naturally, the first thing he did was break into dance. Because when transformed unexpectedly into a styling Goblin in the cavernous lair of a ferocious blind dragon, what other option is there?

Unfortunately, we were all so shocked and astounded that this was the best screenshot I took. I had wanted to see Vargoth tossing Chain Heals around, but learning his true identity was certainly good enough! I mean, knowing he's a Goblin raises all sorts of questions. Maybe he's hiding out in his tower to protect a stash of hidden riches. Or maybe he can't come out because the Goblins in the Dalaran sewers will break his kneecaps over unresolved loans! :O

In any case, Archmage Vargoth, I can't believe you've hidden this from me all these years. It's like I don't even KNOW you anymore!

    What the heck? Haha.

    I love Vargoth so much. Doesn't everyone have a folder full of screenshots of them with Vargoth in various places? That would make a fun gallery to look at.
