Teleport Malfunction by Murasaki99 Teleport Malfunction by Murasaki99
We've all heard of the infamous "wardrobe malfunction", but this is the even more perilous teleport malfunction.

Over the weekend I attempted to move my Forsaken warlock Ichijiro to another server so I could group up and play with friend :icondiinzumo: and give our Horde 'toons some love. Somehow during the process I fat-fingered the transfer and got a sequence of error messages. When I checked 'jiro's status it looked as if she had left her home realm and was... nowhere. :omfg: I could think of all sort of uncomfortable places she could be, especially since the realm transport is supposedly done by the "best" gnomish and goblin engineering. :fear:

Luckily WoW tech support was super fast and very nice and within the day 'jiro was at her destination more or less in one piece, but I do wonder about those hours where she was missing in action.

As always, anything World of Warcraft belongs to Blizzard, but the cartoon is out of my own fervid imagination. :XD:

Thank you. :D Gotta watch out for those "exciting" goblin-built devices. (Although my two goblins would claim that all that gnomish safety gear makes a teleporter "boring".) :noes:

'Jiro would be happy to swap places! At least a death knight might have a chance to survive a bit longer (and if your DK is still Scourge, you're golden!) :w00t!:

Heh, true, true! Once she's Scourge all will be well. Hopefully some goblin will notice the error and teleport her out of her rather uncomfortable seat before Arthas does anything too terrible to her. :pray:

Ichijiro would say, "I hate losing my head! Do you know how much the Undercity priests charge to sew it back on!? :hmm:

Lol! Shame there's so few priests willing to help... And paladin heals don't work that great either if they're not specced for it. Alas, she may remain headless! D:

That would be awkward -- she's already got to carry a wand, staff/dagger, and an off-hand item, having to carry her head as well would be really irritating. :XD:
Reply
:iconkalid909:
Kalid909 Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes indeed! I certainly would have trouble carrying all that, let alone a head included... I know! Put the wand and off hand items in her teeth, and she can use it that way whilst carrying her cranium! :D When one finds themselves with a restriction, work around it! Sure shooting lightening from your jaws isn't nearly as accurate as from hand, but sacrifices must be made! XD

Yes, she's all safe on Garona, leveling up in Stranglethorn and getting rich selling leather from all the skinning. :D Maybe someday she'll return to pay her respects to Arthas when she is level 80 or so. :plotting:

Heh, if she's a troll, all is well, yes? :D Unless she was teleported into the middle of a bubbling cauldron, that would be a tad uncomfortable. :o

Unfortunatly shes a Draenei, so that would be most unfortunate event for her. Though I am sure she would get out of it somehow.. I think.. Not sure..
That bubbling cauldron could be a possibility.

I moved a Human pally from one server to another--had to wait for a weekly mtc. shutdown before my pally was "visible" and playable on the new server. Transfer took a day.... had to wait out a full week for the mtc. tho.

well at the time of Wrath... but she was below the lv for northrend when it started... but that never stopped her... she couldnt do quests so she herbed and top out her herbing and alchemy... and lved that way till she could do quests... but she never got in on any end game raids

but my belf hunter did... he and his hubby went all the way to fight the Lich King... just never beat him...

Murasaki99 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
That's excellent! Aye, herbing and mining are great for leveling ... and earning a bit of gold for buying flying in every zone of the world. :XD:

My buddy who got me started with playing WoW has something like 8 level 85 'toons and I always assumed he'd done the LK fight successfully, but it turns out while he had gotten *almost* to the end, Arthas still managed to beat them. That kind of sounds like it may take me years to get skilled enough to even try. (At which point I'll have 3-5 other expansions to get lost in.) :D

I got a toon i lved doing dailys... just for lol... she is my bank alt

the final fight with the Lich king is a tough fight... but you can do it if you stick with it... but hubby and I work shift work so we went thru 3 guilds trying to get to that fight... each time we got to the lich king we get to try the fight once or twice before shifts would change... and the guild we were with would carry on without us... they get the acheive and we'd start at the bottom again....

.....Not gonna lie. I'm kinda jealous.

Landing in Arthas's lap and all that.
/ALSO HIGH FIVE! Fellow female Forsaken Warlock! :highfive:


I had a transportation mishap myself, upon the release of LK.
I got stuck on the loading screen inbetween Undercity and Northrend, and couldn't log onto my gal.
GM whispers me on an alt, telling me to try logging back in again - cause she moved me.

....I load into the middle of Ironforge. Still level 70.
And the gaurds are now level 80 elites.
I was laughing too damn hard to even try and save my ass. XD Alliance players were confused by my sudden appearance, so they just watched me flop around till the guards killed me.
GM: Are you unstuck? Is everything fine?
Me: Yeah, I hear Ironforge is lovely this time of the year! <3
GM:.......OH. MY GOD. I am SO sorry! Did you die!? D:

Since I'm on an rp server, the GM and I decided that my girl had been captured by the alliance, and made a harrowing escape from Stormwind by hoping the tram and cutting through Ironforge.

:rofl: Ah-ha-ha!! Your poor lady!! It's a long hike from Ironforge to Undercity. If you die in IF, where is the graveyard? At least if you rez outside you can get away, I think. Goodness. Were you on a PvP server or purely RP? Although I guess once you aggro the guards, you're flagged, right? I'm awful at PvP and try to avoid it. :XD:

What server are you on? I've got a small guild on the RP server Cenarion Circle, but so many alts and too little time means not much RP. ^^;

WoW-glitches can be amusing. One of my friends who first introduced me to WoW, spent some days as a ghost because after he got killed his PC crashed; on reboot the spirit healers said he was "alive" and yet he was a ghost. Took a while for the GMs to get him back in his mortal body. He said he spent the week or more exploring in ghost form those areas that would have been too dangerous for his low level.

And 'Jiro would be happy to swap spots in Arthas' lap with your lady, especially since at her level her "lifespan" can probably be measured in seconds. I'm sure she's having awful visions of being turned into a Scourge minion or worse.

Heh, thanks for the high-five! :bump: There doesn't seem to be too many of us around, that's for sure. I've seen male Forsaken 'locks, but no females in my travels. I made a female Forsaken warrior too, who still lives on Shadowsong, and that's another rare breed as far as I can tell.

I think the graveyard is down the path a ways, I didn't get a good look at the map location. Yeah, I'm on Sentinels, which is a regular RP server. People -do- PvP, but prolly not as much as a rp-pvp server would.

I also love the poorly timed naked glitches, that only seem to affect one race at a time.

And it's usually Tauren or Nightelves. D:

Yeah, I don't think I know many female forsaken toons either. Plenty of males though, that's for sure. XD
