Screen Shot of the Week: Line Up War Wolves!

A friend of mine noticed a couple of players on their Kor’kron War Wolves standing in a line and joined in. A short while later, a few more joined. It’s fun to see spontaneous organization. Click after the break for a bonus picture (different view and no caption).

Daily Thoughts: Slayer of Stupid, Incompetent and Disappointing Minions

Slayer of Stupid, Incompetent and Disappointing Minions

A friend of mine saw this guy in-game and noticed his ridiculous title. Straight Ridiculous. I had to look it up to see if it was real and then check the back story. Upon killing Maloriak on heroic, Nefarion gives you the debuff – “Master Adventurer Award – Nefarian has expressed his gratitude towards you for culling his weakest creations and bestowed upon you a new title.”  The title is, “Slayer of Stupid, Incompetent and Disappointing Minions.” The debuff and title last for a half hour and seems to come off after a 30 minutes, death, or logging out.

Just a little gem I wanted to share for those who hadn’t seen this around.

Daily Thoughts: Uldum Thoughts and Screen Shots

Uldum – The new desert zone located in the southern coast of Kalimdor. It is designed for players between 83-84 and is probably where you’re going after deepholm. It is probably my 3rd favorite (out of 3 so far) zone from Cataclsym. Before I get into this one, check out my thoughts on Hyjal and Deepholm. There will be a bit of spoilers regarding quests and story of the zone, so continue after the cut to see the rest.

Daily Thoughts: Deepholm Impressions and Screen Shots

Awesomeness. That’s my “if you had to describe deepholm in one word” word. This zone, like Hyjal, has a very fluid quest process. Blizzard has really stepped up their game with cataclysm. Now the questing has more of the feel of a traditional RPG, where your actions and quest results have a very real effect on the world around you. They again made a lot of use of the phasing mechanics in order to show the progression of the zone and the NPCs involved as you do things which help save the world. The zone is gorgeous and has now become my favorite cataclysm zone. Of course, I’ve only played Hyjal and Deepholm so far.

I’ll try to add to this post as I get more of my own screens posted. I am having trouble finding a nice comprehensive collection of new screen shots, or even a handful of non-comprehensive collections to link. So I implore you to send me or comment links to blogs you have or know that have some of these screens

Postcards from Azeroth – as always another good place to find artistic screen shots.
