The Fall of Theramore

falloftheramore

I got to play the first available “scenario” yesterday. The Fall of Theramore. My first thought was that adding scenarios to the game, by Blizzard is a stroke of pure genius. It reminded me of the FMV (full motion video) sequences that you get when you play RTS (real-time-strategy) games …

Does Azeroth have two suns?

moon

I play Wow, at certain times of day which often coincides around sunset (in the game). It’s always a beautiful site, coming back to Stormwind at the end of some intense questing, to see the sun setting over the horizon from old town. If I’m a little later coming back …

Mists of Pandaria FMV Clip 3 for TV

I love the opening sequence for Mists of Pandaria, particularly the look on Thralls face, right before King Varian Wrynn hands him a weapon to help him fight the monk. It’s a touch of humour that I love to find, even during game play. Like the time my character said, “Come with me, if you want to live” to a Wintergarde villager that it was rescuing (Did you say that in your head like Arnold Swarzschenegger? I always do).

It’s exactly the kind of dorky, over the top movie quote, that I would probably use in real life.

This picture is my draenai mage, after eating a deviate delight (cooking dish), which has the rather funny outcome of either putting your character into a pirate outfit (as a human), or what appears to be a rogue, or ninja. I was completing a quest picked up at the King, which took me around the old barracks.

I’m the King of the World

Ok, not really. But a lighthearted Titanic moment, as I was coming into Northrend, on the ship from Stormwind.

I’m not accustomed to having to take the ship, as my main character is a Mage, who simply teleports straight into Dalaran. Would you get a load of that Aurora? I love it.

At the moment, I’m really enjoying playing a Priest, as a healer (discipline). Since the latest patch, priests have become a force to be reckoned with, and it’s not uncommon for me to take down a Rogue in a battleground, through repeated Holy Word: Shield, using my Psi-fiend, and alternating hitting them with Penance and Shadow Word: Pain each time it counts down.

World of Warcraft Popular Movie References: War of the Worlds

I went out looking to increase my Night Elf Priests’ mining skill level, to get in line with the instances* we’re doing at the moment, because I hate missing out on a mining opportunity in an instance, due to too low a mining skill. So off I went to Outland …

Transmogrification in Overdrive

Wow Insider did a great post yesterday entitled 5 Features I wish World of Warcraft had. You can read it here. My favourite amongst those was the bit about more flexible transmogrification, and the writers desire for more varied options, and the ability to at least have different colour options …

As uttered by your character when rescuing villagers from the scourge, near Wintergarde Keep. Quest called “Flight of the Wintergarde Defender“.

Also spoken by Arnold Schwartzenegger as the Terminator in Terminator 2, and endlessly spoofed by others the world over including Pixar.
