Blizzard Introduces Crabby, the Dungeon Helper!

What a helpful little guy he’ll be!

Have you ever felt alone while soloing? Wish you had someone to chat with about what you were doing, or sick of alt-tabbing out to do extensive research about the tasks at hand and wish there were more help in-game available to you at all times?

Well say hello to Crabby, the Dungeon Helper! He’s here to make sure that you’re all set for whatever tasks you may encounter in the World of Warcraft, and is here to help you when you need it!

He’ll occasionally pop up and offer you bits of advice that can be especially useful, and help guide you when you get lost. Check it out:

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a helpful friend at your side, ready to provide you with tips and hints when you’re stuck? A friend who’s there to provide encouragement, who will help you pick yourself up off the floor after the fifteenth wipe of the night? Someone who will stick with you — no matter what?

Everyone can use a friend like that… a friend like Crabby!

You’re a hero. An adventurer. A sword-swinger or spell-slinger for hire. Whatever your character’s motivation may be, if trouble doesn’t find you, it’s because you found trouble first. But what do you do when Asaad throws down a grounding field? How do you respond when the Faceless Corruptors enter Erudax’s room? Eventually, you’ll be thrown a curve ball that you can’t catch. When that happens, you’ll be glad to have Crabby at your side!

Crabby uses a complex and extensive set of context-sensitive situational heuristics to analyze your current status in real-time; that’s tech talk for “Crabby always knows what’s up.” He watches your every move with his all-seeing eyes. Nothing escapes his unwavering gaze; not even the slightest nuance of your play style goes unnoticed. Before long, Crabby will know what you’re going to do before you even do it. And he will use this knowledge to help.

Crabby is able to tell you exactly what’s going on and what you should do. His many useful tips will appear in the bottom right corner of your screen, where he hangs out, ever patiently, waiting for you to need his help. Of course, whether you follow his advice or not is entirely up to you; Crabby may possess an advanced level of artificial intelligence, but we’re reasonably sure he doesn’t have any feelings you could hurt. Reasonably sure. But just in case, the ability to remove Crabby has been disabled for now.

Good! I mean, who wouldn’t want Crabby around to help? Check out the images over at his information page – look how much he loves to help! He’s a helper crab, yes he is.

(psst. By the way. He appears on all World of Warcraft sites, too. Browse around and enjoy! He’s such a helper.)
