The true Horde waits to enter the dark portal and destroy the Iron Horde.
I should have a post up in the near future about some specifics on 5.4, but for now here are some screen shots of the new stuff.
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.
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.
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.
This zone is pretty awesome so far.
Here’s a couple pictures of the new beachfront property in Tanaris along with several of all the craziness in Ashenvale.

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.
