Photographing Azeroth

Since World of Warcraft’s beginning, it’s been a fantastic world to “live” in. There’s excitement, adventure, and beauty. Recently I read an article by Suzie Ford on her experiences in WoW as a new player. She had the following to say about the environment in WoW:

Even with the dated graphics, World of Warcraft is still one of the prettiest games I’ve ever played, both visually and aurally. I actually like the color palette and the ways in which the team put together all of the zones through which I’ve traveled and the music score only enhances the feel of each area.

In the fast paced gaming/internet world, World of Warcraft is getting “up there” in years. However, even nearly 9 years later, I still marvel at the beautiful world that Blizzard has created for us.

My husband, Fraket, spent a day last weekend photographing Azeroth. A real world photographer, he applied his photography skills out in the world (of Warcraft). You can view the full set here, but these are some of my favorites.

Femtaur Monday #18!

Some Mondays I will do a quick post, spotlighting a special Femtaur.  They could be from Lore, friendly Forumers, Tweetaurs, or even from my very own character list :3

Today I will be highlighting:

Kela Grimtotem

Recently I’ve been bitten by the Pet Battling bug and, with Sparklebeard and Miranda‘s help, I armed myself with an excellent beginner’s guide and pushed my pets past their earlier, low levels. I was having a great time blasting through the levels, when I happened upon Kela.  Kela is a Master Pet Tamer in Thousand Needles. You must win against her to complete the Battle Pet Tamers: Kalimdor quest.

Kela caught me off guard. You probably know my feelings about the Grimtotem as illustrated in Magatha’s Femtaur Monday. But, Kela was a strangely beautiful demon.

No matter her beauty, she’s still a Grimtotem at heart.

I will stand in your way Kela!

I opened my guide and away I went!

Hooray for my team!

I managed to pull out a win at the end, but I couldn’t help but feel sorry for her.  Hopefully, in the future, the Grimtotem will come to their senses and rejoin their fellow Tauren brothers and sisters.
Perhaps this could be the dawn of the Femtaur Warlock, Mage, and Rogue?

Gee, thanks Google ♥

In celebration of becoming ancient today, I treated myself to an ancient of my own… A Blossoming one!

With a Pet Biscuit, the Ancient is almost as big as me!

Ever since this pet was data-mined, I looked forward to getting a chance to own one of my very own. He’s adorable and I’m super excited to show him around Azeroth this weekend!
