This post is the fourth in a series this month for International Picture Posting Month, see this post for more details.
Since I’m actually a bit behind my idea of 10 pictures a week for IntPiPoMo, the Gnome Race post was a shorter one, I’m squeezing in a bonus post at the end of this week.
Playing World of Warcraft last night I was playing around taking some screenshots and my husband looked over and commented on just how beautiful the zone/building/lighting/everything design is in the expansion’s zones. Blizzard have outdone themselves this time around. I like all four of the levelling zones for different reasons: lore, questing content or their atmosphere.
It seems to rain a lot in Stormheim, so it’s often moody and dour.
That’s not to say the zone lacks its own charm – it has some great quest-giver characters.
Highmountain is probably my favourite zone because I really like the Tauren. Of the four starter zones, this zone made me care the most about the characters we were adventuring alongside.
I think Highmountain’s vistas speak for themselves.
Val’sharah is a real contrast of light and dark. The unspoilt areas are really beautiful to explore.
The nightmare corrupted areas are dark and twisted, aptly but annoyingly they’re rather a pain to adventure through.
Azsuna is light and open but a sad zone, so much has been lost and ruined here.
There are some memorable little areas though, and the odd touch of humour to lighten the mood.
