WoW Word of the Week: banal

August 3, 2008

This week, I’ve chosen a word that made me giggle when I read it.  YOU know why.

This week’s word is:

banal

\BAY-nul; buh-NALL; buh-NAHL (British)\, adjective:
Commonplace; trivial; hackneyed; trite.

Example:  Perhaps the reason I hate Night Elf hunters is because they are so banal.  Or perhaps it is because they drive me into a murderous rage whenever I see them.  Possibly the combination of the two.

  1. But don’t you love my cute boingy ears?? /gasp


  2. Aww, c’mon now! Just because I had played almost every other class or race in the game other than kal’dorei and hunters I’m thrown into the same banal category? At least I roleplay my huntress as something other than those perky, cutesy, “I love my pet”, flirtatious nelf hunters that drive me into a murderous rage.

    I’d rather be trollin’, to be honest, but the choices for hunters Alliance-side are a bit limited and I already had a dwarf at the time!


  3. Every Azeroth holiday me and my fellow guildies seem to just ‘end up’ rolling new low level night elves … then as a group we trek off to find mail boxes in alliance cities to dance on … often in our knickers

    It is possible we are contributing to the banal NE reputation O_O … mwahahahahahah ^_^


  4. Pike – It’s okay, I’ll just pretend you only have a Tauren Hunter 🙂

    Cynra – If you RP it differently, I suppose that’s okay. Just don’t let me run into you on the Elemental Plateau, because all bets are off there!

    Lactic – I am of the understanding that Night Elves set their Hearthstones to on top of mailboxes, because that’s where I always see them.


  5. @ Cynra – I like the way I RP my night elf too. Booze-drinkin’ gun-slingin’ Calamity Jane type… she is a blast to play!


  6. hmmm actually … I experimented with that … if you set your hearth while dancing on, say an inn keepers reception desk, that’s where you end up hearthing back in.

  13. Hee I notice a saturation in banal self-pingback. Banal is certainly a word of the month ^_^ lol.
