This is a silly article.

The content of this article is not part of official Warcraft lore, but has nevertheless become part of the World of Warcraft culture or community.

Apparently linked to the then-upcoming 2.1.0 change where mining nodes aggros nearby mobs, a blood elf paladin created this legendary thread on the US Forums:


Skinning a bear should aggro every bears
in a 40 yard radius. It makes sense, you are actually skinning their best friend.

April Fool's Day, 2008

Main article: World of Warcraft: The Molten Core

On 1-April-2008, Blizzard included this line in a facetious video about a hypothetical Molten Core console game.

Notes

  • Skinning a bear should aggro every bears.
  • Logging on should aggro everything.
  • You are actually skinning their best friend.

Trivia

  • Tseric's last documented post before leaving Blizzard was a reply to a thread in which the OP stated, "Killing a Tseric should aggro every Tserics in a 40 yd radius. It makes sense, you are actually killing their best friend."
  • Before she left Blizzard, Coreiel changed her signature to "Flaming a blue should aggro every blues. It makes sense".
  • Introducing the Dance Battle System references the meme.
