Breakfast Topic: Do you appreciate the beauty of a fascinating bug?

Suzanne Bower

This Breakfast Topic has been brought to you by Seed, the Aol guest writer program that brings your words to WoW Insider's pages.

I love bugs in the World of Warcraft. Wait, let me clarify that: I love bugs in WoW that don't stop me from being able to complete the game. While the bug in Vashj'ir stopped me from being able to finish the zone, made me want to charter a plane to California, camp out in front of Blizzard headquarters, and punch the first game designer who came by me in the face, the bugs that do weird things to terrain or my character brighten my day and give me warm, amused fuzzies.

I am fascinated by terrain that bugs out as I am flying over it, and I can get sidetracked quite easily by running over to it to see if it changes as I get closer. I have fond memories of spending almost an hour "swimming" through the air of a bugged-out Shattrath when I couldn't log out or see anyone around me. I also remember days when I squished my boredom by looking through pictures of the day that captured weird visual bugs on people's characters or their surroundings.

Are there any others out there like me who find the beauty and amusement in this wonderful game of ours when it decides it does not want to work quite right? Or am I the only one who can see the sun through the dark cloud that is bugginess?
