Ordos and his loot

I have never seen loot from Ordos!  Some people are pretty lucky and have quite a few drops for their alts for him even!  Which is why I was so slow to realise that a lot of the Ordos loot was named after a lot of people I recognise from the WoW community!


Aladya's Spiritfire Greathelm
Named after one of Methods paladin healers, Aladya.  Method is current #1 raiding guild in the world, and is on Twisting Nether, EU.

Anafielle's Spiked Choker
Anafielle is one of the three authors of the prot pally blog Sacred Duty, and is a member of the guild Something Wicked.

Arielle's Ancient Legwraps
Yay for druid love!  This one I know - Arielle is from Team Waffle Podcast and writes on the Inconspicuous Bear (well, because they're the bear LOL).  I thought Arielle's tweet was pretty cool
"I'm pretty sure there's a rule somewhere that if you get an item named after you in @Warcraft you get to call in sick the next day." - @riftmaker
Binkenstein's Burnished Belt
Someone whose name I recognise from Twitter, Binkenstein is plays an ele shaman and theorycrafts a lot at Elitist Jerks and Totem Spot.  And apparently he's a kiwi!  His tweets are now protected, so I wonder when I saw his tweets.. maybe a log time ago but the name and avatar are very familiar :)

Damien's Icy-Vein Mask
Who doesn't know that site, Icy-Veins?  I'm there all the time! A fantastic site for raid info as well as world faction stuff, it's such a great site, and Damien is one of the co-owners of the site.  Kudos to him!

Derevka's Gleaming Girdle
Another person from the guild Something Wicked!  I have seen Derevka on twitter, and he writes at Tales of a Priest (and also contributes to How To priest), and apparently was Totally Debuffed with Humbled when he heard the news of his tribute.  Aww, that's just too awesome!

Hamlet's Wind-Whipped Leggings
Named for Hamlet from Elitist Jerks - need I say anymore :P  I watched some of his Challenge Mode videos!  A very helpful guy indeed!

Hoodrych's Bloodied Chestplate
A warrior PvP live streamer from the #1PvP guild on Tichondrius "Hey I'm MVP", Hoodrych is one of those scary bloody warriors that I don't want anywhere near me!

Magdalena's Murderous Crown
Another Something Wicked member and EJ theorycrafter - Magdalena, who plays a DK, was "floored and honoured" to have something named after her!

Olivia's Graceful Gaze
I love the play on this name :)  Olivia Grace from WoWInsider (she writes the PvP column) who also features on gamebreaker.tv's Legendary podcast - she is one busy lady playing her Shay-man!

Omegal's Crushing Carapace
I didn't know this but Omegal is one of the tanks for Something Wicked, and also one of the developers of Deadly Boss Mods!

Paululum's Doodled Wraps
Paululum does so many cutesy doodles - I think you would have to read forums to understand the jokes - but they are hugely popular :D
Ghostcrawler and Zarrhym's baby
Rossi's Rosin-Soaked Shoulderplates
Matthew Rossi, has a lovely voice!  My tiny brush with fame with him is that you can hear his voice introducing TNB right before my interview on it (he was on it the week before me!).  Matthew Rossi is from WoWInsider and plays a warrior.

Stickney's Grey-Shade Hood
Anne Stickney (@ShadesoGrey - no not that book!) is the Lorewriter for WoWInsider. I had some articles from my blog linked by her ages ago, and it was a massive honour I can tell you that!   Apparently this item had a typo on the PTR!  Lucky it's fixed so now she can marry it :P

Venruki's Venerable Sash
Shabahdu's HERO!  He goes on and on at me about Venruki who plays with Sodah sometimes and livesteams .  Venruki is another member from Tichondrius' Hey I'm MVP and is an AMAZING mage.  I wish Shab could get the belt so he could be a total fanboy.  I should drag him to Ordos sometime.

Zoo-per's Superior Chestguard
Zoopercat is the CEO of Ask Mr Robot, which I use to help with reforges and regems for your gear.  Lush has full membership so he tells me what to do most of the time!

I wish I could collect all these to be a total fanboy :D Gotta love Blizz getting down in there with the community!

  1. I haven't had any loot from him either although I've only been able to kill him twice. Those items were a nice touch. I hope they do more of those in the future.

    1. Maybe you should write about it Cym - after I published this post I got loot from Ordos! (Now I have a Zooper chestguard :DDD)

  2. That is way cool!

    I had the pleasure of meeting Anne back when she still lived in San Diego (turns out she lived a mile away from me!) and she is just as awesome IRL as she is in her articles. Very awesome!

    1. Now that is pretty cool! She should have been honoured to meet someone as awesome as you Lyss! :D

  3. That is incredible; and I must confess am kind of star struck and envious all at the same time!

  4. The stats for that belt is actually pretty nice, and I'd totally use it for pvp!

I hope these comments work! Not sure why people can't comment lately, it makes me sad :(
