Pygmy Oil is made through Alchemy using Pygmy Suckerfish (found in Northrend) making 1-2 oils per Suckerfish. Taking one of these oils will shrink you down in size, although the shrinkage is not too noticeable. Take multiple oils and you will keep shrinking down until you turn into a female Gnome Pygmy.
The number of oils needed for this transformation can vary. It usually only takes between 8-10 oils. The effect lasts 10mins but you can keep extending the buff by using one oil to refresh the illusion before the buff expires. There doesn’t seem to be any variation in the Pygmy illusion though like some of the others.
Things to note
- Apparently when someone used the Noble Garden Spring Flowers to give you bunny ears, the mask was removed and you got the ears! Sadly, this no longer works.
12. Inspiring Imagery
Show us something that inspires you within World of Warcraft. This can be a character, a person, scenery that leaves you in awe, or whatever it is that strikes a chord in you. The inspiration it creates can be anything as well: Has this character inspired you to roll a certain class? Does a certain zone make you long to write a story about your character adventuring through that particular area?
In the heart of the Whispering Forest there’s a magical mushroom circle as well as a number of Faerie Dragons known as Fey-Drunk Darters. Upon closer inspection, you’ll even see a layer of mist hovering high above the circle. One-by-one seven Fey-Drunk Darters will spawn and fly erratically not too far from the mushrooms. They each take their time spawning so you’ll be in for a wait, even when all are present. Don’t worry though, it’s definitely worth it as you get an amazing light show in return.
Watch as all seven Fey-Drunk Darters slowly move towards the circle and seem to sing as magical golden notes appear above their heads. Funnily enough in my evening show, only six took part giving me the opportunity to take the place of the seventh Darter.
While the music is playing, beams of golden light shine from each Darter, converging in the centre of the mushroom ring – known as the Faerie Circle. The deer, fawn and stags in the area seem enchanted by the music as they slowly gather around the circle. The event lasts ~2mins ending when the Darters slowly turn to fly away, perhaps fading out to the Emerald Dream. The curious animals similarly walk away as if nothing had happened.
Hours later, the event begins again and from what I’ve seen, it seems to happen any time of day as I managed to see the event twice the same day; once in the afternoon and later that evening.
If you haven’t experienced the magic of the Faerie Circle yet, I recommend watching this video (recorded by Syrco Owl). Although I didn’t have any spectators around at the time, it almost felt like I’d been teleported to some other world or perhaps some kind of magical Ballet.
