Around Azeroth: And then the UI turned vicious


So what the heck is going on here? According to Lightblaze of Black Dragonflight, he was being chased by a hunter through Nagrand when he was suddenly set upon by another enemy -- his own user interface. As you can see, his action buttons decided to invade his cloak, helmet and landscape, while what appears to be a railing has taken over the sky. Lightblaze stated that the glitch fixed itself after he alt-tabbed, and that while he was glitched, the hunter ran past him as if he wasn't there.

I was torn on posting this one. The glitch looks almost too bizarre to be true, and I suspect a lot of people will say it's been photoshopped. But stranger things have happened in-game (i.e. gnomes with night elf faces) and I tend to believe our contributors. I'm not a UI or Photoshop expert by any means, so I'll leave it up to you guys.


Do you have any unusual World of Warcraft images that are just collecting dust in your screenshots folder? We'd love to see it on Around Azeroth! Sharing your screenshot is as simple as e-mailing with a copy of your shot and a brief explanation of the scene. You could be featured here next!

Remember to include your player name, server and/or guild if you want it mentioned. We prefer full screen shots without the UI showing. And please, no more sunsets, unless they're glitched to look like skulls.
