The night elf starting area is called, Tertradissl or something like that. It is basically a giant tree, the whole zone is based inside of this tree. Cool stuff! I won't go on and on about the lore of this area, but I will say that I enjoyed it and that I am now interested in WoW's lore. I might even read some of those books! Hey, why not?
Well, CowNoseKitty is a rogue (gah, I always spell it rouge) and this is her sprint effect, gives here this cool little trail behind.
The Night Elfs have this awesome mount, the hypogriff, but in this screenshot you can also see the great tree behind. Notice all the giant roots, cool stuff.
There is an epic flying mount that is probably pretty difficult to get, because you need a huge amount of reputation plus a lot of money. Still, it's very awesome because it looks like this hypogriff except with some armor. Very cool! I will probably try to get it, since I like these guys much better then griffons.
I never knew WoW could be pretty! ^^
This forest does the dark spooky thing really well.
And interesting thing I didn't know, is that WoW runs on real-time. That is to say, a 24-hour day in WoW is a 24-hour day in the real world. What this means is, there is only 1 sunrise and 1 sunset per day in WoW! (unless somehow you can fly fast enough to catch more than one hehe, I suppose that is possible) From a screnshot perspective this is kind of annoying, because it means I won't be able to just camp out for a few hours and wait for the awesome light conditions, but it's also awesome because it makes the sunrise/sunset more special.
