SOE Offers SAT Prep

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Well, whether you're sharpening your number two pencils in preparation for the upcoming SAT's or if like this guy you've already won them, SOE is here to help you skill-up your vocabulary levels.

A few days ago, I was hanging with a group in the Obelisk of Lost Souls. This zone is usually much less crowded than comparable zones and has a nice population of named mobs (note: only one person in your group needs access to the Obelisk). Anyway, I was half asleep when I ran into a mob called the "Senescent Lorekeeper." Drowsily, I did a double-take and took the above screenshot (horrible I know but hey I had aggro on me - what do you expect?)

Now, I knew senescent was an actual word but for the life of me, I couldn't remember what it meant. Being sleepy myself, I guessed it meant drowsy. But I guessed
wrong. Guess I'm getting to be a senescent wizzie myself.

I started wondering if there is a SOE "Naming Team" that sits around
drinking Red Bull with a thesaurus. "Okay, we called the last skeleton restless, now we need an S word."

Here are some of the more educational mobs I have seen recently:

A Fetid Goo: Hmmm...not just a Goo but a Goo with an "offensive odor." Poor goo.

A Weald Wolf Pup: SOE gets a little (Lord) British on us, using the Old English word for forest.

A Magmatic Golem: I don't think there are many occasions where you would use the adjectival form of the word magma, but apparently this is one.

And remember not to confuse your Pestilent Ratongas (infected with sickness) with your Petulant Forces (irritable).

If you need math help, I can't help you (it makes my head hurt) but try talking to the Curious Augur on the Enchanted Lands docks for a math brainteaser.

Who says you can't learn anything from video games?
