The Fall of Theramore

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 like the old Warcraft III, Age of Empires etc. Of course – the big question on everyone’s minds, is, just what, exactly has happened to Theramore? Look here. (spoiler alert) The Fall of Theramore   Once you’ve ┬ácompleted the scenario, you get given a very smart looking Theramore tabard...

Does Azeroth have two suns?

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 to the AH to sell off my wares, to the moon rise over the Valley of Heroes. Then, for the first time, the other morning, I was playing in the early morning, around sun rise. I saw in-game conditions that mimicked the sunset. Now from a technical perspective, I’m...

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...

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...

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 to catch-up. I was primarily focusing on Nagrand, and Netherstorm (*shudder* that place gives me the heebies!). After I’d accumulated enough, I decided that instead of taking a gryphon ‘flight’, that rather I would fly back to the Portal in Hellfire Peninsula, check out the scenery on the way,...

The Darkmoon Faire and why you must visit it

The first time I went to the Darkmoon Faire, I had just clicked on the “Welcome Witch” (as I call her) somewhere in Darnassus with my brand new (maybe level 13) night elf character, and suddenly I was at the staging area in Elwyn Forest. I had no idea that I’d been teleported to another continent, much less what I was supposed to do. I’d accepted the quest that you get, the first time you go, so I knew that I was supposed to give someone some invitation – but no amount of running around the staging area –...

World of Warcraft and Realism

I was screenshotting my characters the other day in preparation for some sidebar widgets I’m creating and when I pulled up my Rogue’s screenshot…and I saw this… Just like real life, you take a photo, and the subject goes and blinks. 18 days to go till Mists of Pandaria comes out! *DOUBLE...

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 on gear. I’d like to take that a step further and be able to at least strive for gear that has a total (forgive me for this one) “Barbie-esque” ability for me to tailor-make my characters gear and clothing exactly the way I want it, from the length and...
