Dwarf City

Well, I made a bank alt named Rulero. I like him, he is dressed snazzy and will hopefully make me a ton of gold.

Yes, I managed to fall down here.

There are some really great looking buildings in here.

Just cool!

The gnome stuff makes me dizzy.

Deep in the center of the dwarven city is The Great Forge. I think.

So much to see, so much to do in WoW

Continuing my adventures in World of Warcraft, I have seen a lot of sights. Most of my time in WoW is spent exploring, not killing monsters or doing quests. Hey, must be a draeni thing, we where born to run!

Deep in the forest, you always gotta watch your back! Who knows when you might come to a scary forest in the woods surrounded by undead.

Noone is safe from the undead menace!

Well, that forest was too scary so I went back to the human city. I think this mount sure looks cool.
Here is Ironforge, city of the dwarves!

I looked up at one point in time, and was blown away by this architecture. Very cool.

There was a cute painting in the same place.

Yeah, I think I could study magic here!

Just some sightseeing

Phew! It's been a long month, but I'm pretty much done with my first year of college! I'm proud to say that I have survived, and I'm also happy that this blog continued throughout the year. Well, I could say more, but lets just get into the screenshots. ^^

Yeah, this picture is just awesome.
This is the king of Ironforge or something like that.
Flying on a griffon really is great!
Sometimes dancing just breaks out in the auction house. ^^

Well, that's all for now, thanks for reading!

Deadmines, and a little other travel

Continuing my adventures in World of Warcraft I have made it to the deadmines and the respective area. The deadmines are... well just a mine I guess, but it has some interesting sights inside. I got some great pictures outside too!

This first picture is great. I kinda forgot where I took this, I think it was in the wetlands.
In WoW there are these summoning stones you can use to transport group members to your location. They are always outside of a dungeon or instance.

I was really surprised by the flowing lava in this part of the deadmines. It really has a great effect! I wish I could show it to you in motion. (Maybe someday moving pictures will be really common, like in Harry Potter where it shows the same thing usually but you can see things like water move and lava flow and the characters shuffle now and then)

Deeper in the deadmines you come across this awesome looking ship. And sometimes.... gnomes dancing.

After a few runs through the deadmines, I wanted to just do some exploring, so I decided to take one of the boats I saw and see where it went.

The boat led to the night elf area, which I wasn't terribly interested in, but wandering deeper into the surrounding forest I found this really awesome structure. You know what it reminds me of? If you have ever read The Wheel of Time, it reminds me of the giant magical-amplifier things. But it's obviously stuck into something, and that something seems to be bleeding light... so I don't know. I would be curious to find out just what this structure is and what it is used for.

[EDIT: I just noticed something interesting! Some of these screenshots where taken at night and in the dark, and yet they look fantastic! In EverQuest 2 I couldn't take any night pictures because they would always come out bad]

[EDIT2: Oh, one more thing! I started another blog and I would love it if anyone reading this would take a look. It is almost exactly the same as this blog, only it is pictures from real-life! I will be going to California and Alabama this summer on vacation, so expect some great pictures. Take a look at my new blog: American Roast]
