DIY Robot

Have you noticed the new fluff items from your daily Blingtron Package lately? A Steamy Romance Novel may be old news to some but the Blingtron Heart Key is certainly new. Then that got me thinking… along the lines of finding all sorts of treasures around Pandaria, what if we could find random body parts, kind of like piecing the Crumbled Chamberlain together and make our own robots but each piece had a random chance to be a different colour or design – like one could be a bionic arm or some other unique feature.

Maybe one design could look like Blingtron or Jeeves or possibly a new design but you couldn’t see what kind of robot you had until you had all the pieces.

The Crumbled Chamberlain

I imagine my robot to be a companion like the Argent Gruntling who can sell, trade or access your bank. Maybe even loot stuff like the Fetch glyph for Hunters or Helpful Wikky’s Whistle. On the other hand, imagine if we had a portable hand-in for all those archaeology artifacts without having to go back to the Seat of Knowledge every day. If that’s the case, handing in those pristine items could open up a holographic dialogue of sorts letting us know more about the item we’ve discovered.

I don’t know, maybe I just have Archaeology on the brain but finding all those Lost Treasures and Riches of Pandaria injected a new kind of excitement I’ve been missing for a long time. By the way, if you’re in the market for creating your own shirts, check out this T-Shirt Printing site.

    • Thx Pando. I’m sure it could sound even better if it was more thought out :)

  1. I love that idea! Maybe the parts could come from a combination of things like fishing and Archaeology and drops. Your own little frankenstein robot!

    • It could just mean I’ve been watching too much Once Upon a Time and Grimm :P

  2. I was thinking archaeology digs! But combining it with fishing would be quite cool too!

    • Archaeology would make sense but fishing would make it more random so more unique I think – like those profession mounts you don’t see too many of (at first).

    • As long as it’s the one from the movie and not the original series LOL.

  4. I love this idea Cymre! The holographic robot thing! But… If you could find bits and pieces of different robots everywhere, wouldn’t your bags get really full? ;)

    • Hehe, true. I guess you could chuck the doubles if you have two left arms for example but it would still be a surprise when you completed it.
