Aka Ironyca Stood in the Fire – gaming blog
The reason I came up with writing this post is due to this one phrase that has kept appearing as a search term. People out there wants to know about “secret wine cellar Gallywix Pleasure Palace” and search engines lead them to me. It drives me crazy, I’ve read and read and everything has led to a dead-end. I have gone to the Pleasure Palace every time I saw the search term, thinking I must have overlooked something, I just needed to look for hidden doors or gaps, it had to be there!
If I google this myself, I would find a link to Wowpedia saying this:
“The palace has an ocean view, grenade golf course, a secret booze cellar, a luxury pool, and a sauna. The booze cellar is not seen in the game.”
This information comes from a short story called “Trade Secrets of a Trade Prince” written by Gavin Jurgens-Fyhrie, where the palace is described as having a booze cellar, but of course the online WoW doesn’t always correspond. So there’s basis for assuming it would be there when all the other cool pleasure features are. (I must say though, that short story does sound awfully relevant to any self employed auction house mogul!)
This inspired me to go look for more myths and urban legends in WoW, and there are many of varying themes from how to acquire certain items, to misunderstandings on how fx resting and healing works.
Generally I get the impression that the majority of these stories arose in original WoW (aka “vanilla”) in a time where players were learning and building the vast amount of knowledge about the inner workings of this world, that we now have come to take for granted.
I intend to expand upon this collection of myths and urban legends as I go along and manage to find them scattered around the web.
They’ll all be added on the overview page.
