Screenshot Time: Pretty teeth..

A charming smile tells everything, right? That guy is surely not creepy or scary at all! So nice that I don’t even want to go near him.. but the quest says he’s friendly eventually. T_T


Screenshot Time: Elements

Not all of them sadly, because I missed taking some good screenshots from the other two parts of the chain when I was doing it the last time. But I thought these were still great! 🙂


Screenshot Time: Fall is beautiful

It’s something of an interesting paradox, as the days are getting short and cold, the colours are getting warm and gentle. Personally I like fall, because the tones of orange and red with lots of others in between are just awesome – and of course the days are getting shorter, which I don’t care so much about, but the nights are getting longer! And that means a whole lot less awkward going-to-bed-after-sunrise occasions. Though I can’t say they don’t happen anymore at all.. 🙂


Screenshot Time: Rainbow Demons!

Who would have thought that Inhabitants of the Nether could be so fabulous?! (It looks more like a rainbow in-game, the screenshot isn’t the best – I didn’t have the time to take other pictures, it was over so fast :()

The Demon isn’t really looking pretty by itself, the swirling lights are actually banning Archduke Calcinder for the Quest From Whence He Came from this realm with the help of precious stones that were obtained from the Twilight Hammer so he can’t return – simply killing him would only result in him getting revived. But it’s still something of an unusual view, almost sparkly. 🙂


Screenshot Time: Sometimes a great view is just right above you

This is one of the great parts about starting to write a blog about a topic you know well – eventually you start to pay attention to details you have never noticed before. So recently I discovered that the ceiling of Scholomance actually is very detailed and looks awesome! And I don’t even know if it always looked that way or if they changed it together with the rest of the dungeon when they did the big purge and revamp. Who ever pays attention to the ceiling of a dungeon? Turns out that I never did..

Though that’s also a great thing in itself, apparently there are still new things for me to discover in World of Warcraft, and not only when new content gets added. Even if it’s only something small like this.. It reminds and makes me appreciate again just how detailed and amazing this game is.

Also, here’s an extra screenshot for everyone who isn’t so much interested in the virtual architecture of WoW (flames are great for everyone, right?):


Screenshot Time: ALL the Shinies!

Whenever I see piles of cool things like this in a game I’m jealous – I want to have housing and hoard them and stuff my place up to the roof with shinies! I’m a big hoarder and would love to steal interesting things and keep them all for myself, simply to look at them.

That’s one reason why I actually like Skyrim – I put way too much effort into stealing a glass with a bee in it (there was someone in the room who kept seeing me in the wrong second) until I finally succeeded. And I’m still ridiculously happy about it every time I come back home! If only I could do the same kind of thing in WoW. ._.


Screenshot time: Confused Weather

This is just one of the little oddities in the game I came across long ago – apparently the entrances of the tunnels in the dwarven areas are always filled with sunshine (or is it something else?), even when it’s raining.

Just something the developers overlooked when adding weather effects, or are the beardy beer drinkers part of a bigger scheme? Maybe there were shady connections to Ragnaros after all.. 😀


Screenshot time: Journey through Pandaria

Mists of Pandaria is just so insanely pretty, I love to take pictures of all these colourful and interesting places! This one is from the Temple of the Jade Serpent in the Jade Forest, before the sky becomes clouded and dark because of the Sha’s presence.

If only the Horde and Alliance could have kept their war away from Pandaria.. That probably wouldn’t have been very interesting as an expansion, but I want to kick both Varian and Garrosh into certain places for doing that. And I’m fully aware that nothing of this actually exists in the real world.. but I surely wish it would. ._.


Size scaling of items – Something is a bit off here with Thunderfury

Looking through some of my older screenshots, I found another one to show – here I am on my bloodelf hunter with my oldest WoW friend just after I finally got my Thunderfury as well, a while after helping him to get his legendary, so we compared the size..

I mean, alright, elves are significantly smaller and thinner than tauren so it’s natural, but even a gnome has a bigger sword than that, I’ve tried the same comparison! And while standing right next to each other, one looks like a big and intimidating weapon and the other like a sparkling toothpick in the meantime. I knew Blizzard never wanted female bloodelves as close ranged and weapon wielding fighters, this makes it obvious! 😀

I don’t really mind, I always hated the sound female bloodelves make when hitting something in close combat, but it’s a bit mortifying for the ‘Blessed Blade of the Windseeker’.. And probably any other sword that is meant to look like a dangerous weapon, or at least impressing.^^


Favourite Screenshot time!

Over the years of active playing, a lot of these pictures tend to gather – most pretty meh, some kind of okay and a few really nice ones. Since I don’t really get to show them to anyone and mostly just look through them by myself to remember old times or to look at the beautiful landscapes WoW has to offer, I thought I could as well pick my favourites and show one now and then. 🙂

This is one of my oldest characters, the shadow priest Tirisha I played on a different server back then, and who I saw countless runs of Stratholme, Scholomance and Dire Maul with. I mostly healed as a shadow to these times, because there was no dual spec. Dear lord, that was so long ago already. ._.
