Day 05 – Favorite item(s) in game

I feel like I'm kind of cheating on this one. So much so, I'll actually include a jump. Now I figured most people would post some cool item, either a drop they pined over or a quest reward that is awesome, amazing, or spectacular. I'm about to drop an item that is none of the above. In fact, it's not even something you can technically obtain in game. It is..... it is.......

Yes, that's right my favorite item in game is the Foam Sword Rack!

gator needs his....sword?
I mean really, what's not to like? It's a freakin' foam sword rack that you and all your buddies can interact with. Nothing was as much fun as standing on the steps of Mighty Ulduar, waiting for the raid to fill up, whackin' the hell out of each other with colorful foam swords. Better yet was good old Gordrin purposely attempting to tank some trash mobs with one and realizing that most of this abilities required a "real" sword. Of course when someone pulls out the FSR, someone has to pull out the playground spectral tiger and then DISCO ball and then the dancing flame and then the brewfest maidens.....and the fun continues. What a fun item to not only play with but to spark even more fun in the oftentimes stress filled world of progression raiding.

Some of the card games items are lame (I'm looking at you personal weather machine) to say the least, but I think Blizzard can learn a thing or two here. Making these items fun and interactive can create an everlasting impression on players. Of all the loots drops that I've won, all the items I've rep grinded for, and all the gear I've saved for - I remember THIS above all.

Where is Samuel L. Jackson yelling "MESSAGE" when you need him?
