The things in between: Eastern Kingdoms – Part 2 out of 4

 

For quite some time I have been wanting to make a piece on this.

A piece on how all the zones look from above, but more specifically; how they look next to each other, together.

I’m not sure why – maybe it is the nostalgy in me, maybe it’s seeing how the areas have changed since 10 years ago, or maybe it’s just watching them from above, something that was not possible back, when it all began.

Originally what inspired me to do this tour was the look of three zones, next to each other, having both snow, desert and lush forests.  Within one screenshot, so many of the elements.

I shall begin with about 1/4 of Eastern Kingdom, because this is where I got inspired to start. The world of Azeroth is enormous, and it takes quite a while for such a post to come together; I’m depending on different kinds of daylight, and the editing and what not, yeah, it has been in the making for a few days – So best split it up a bit!

Maybe it’s me, but there is just something about the view, that moves me, so here goes 🙂

 

 

I really enjoyed doing Part 1.

And now it’s time to actually continue one of my many ideas for post series, I think, so here is Part 2!

 

Let’s see, we left off around Blasted Lands, Swamp of Sorrows and Deadwind Pass.

 

So let’s move forward to how Searing Gorge, Burning Steppes and Dun Morough allign up together.

 

 

I imagine this part is one of the least populated areas of the entire game (You can spot a little of Elwynn Forest/Stormwind at the left side of this screenshot, included to show where we are at.)

I still am being followed around by my army of moonfiring Moonkins. Gotta love how the buff from the Moonkin Festival is lasting five days of active play time.

I will have them until next year!

Even the waters in the area have nothing in them. I did not see a single fish.

How about one gorgeous view though? I really like the colours during this hour there.

As we move on to Blasted Lands, Loch Modan and Dun Morough, we find the place, that actually inspired this whole series.

Such different elements together. Granted, the destruction of Deathwing ruins the whole thing a tad, but hey.

I took a few of Blasted Lands and Loch Modan together too, since there is just such a difference between the two zones.

During this tour, I found a place I forgot all about, called Fuselight-By-The-Sea.

I quested far too little in the world after Cataclysm hit, so I could hardly recall this. But upon seeing that teleporter, I got reminded. Won’t say too much about it, go see for yourself 🙂

One from above showing Twillight Highlands and Loch Modan.

It’s odd; in some places one can fly high above, but in others, there are fare more restrictions.

And Wetlands together with it.

Of course, one cannot go to Twillight Highlands without visiting Russell Brower

I managed to catch two beautiful and different spots in Twillight Highlands.

Though maybe it’s the Moonkins that makes this first one so special…

Wherever you go, always remember to look up 🙂

Is this really all there is left of the magnificient Stonewrought Dam..?

Somehow, I am less sad about it now, knowing, that I will get to see it in its former glory on a Classic server some day 🙂

The last zones I want to cover are Dun Morough and Wetlands together. It’s such a long fall!

And showing a little bit more, and how the part of Dun Morough looks by the ocean on the other side.

The top of these mountains would make an excellent spot for RP too, it reminded me of the landscape of Thousand Needless, except snowy instead.

This turned out so cute. Look at us holding hands…Or wings.

This would have been the end of the post. But from the top of the mountain, I noticed something far into the distance. If you look close, you can see it too!

 

I really love how one can see so far in WoW these days. It didn’t always used to be that way. But seeing Blackrock Mountains all the way from Stormwind, for example, really is something great, I think.

Naturally it was a part of Gilneas I could spot, but would it actually be possible to fly straight towards it before the Fatigue bar gets us? (I chose to fly, because, moonkins, you know. I already took them through the ocean once today.)

They fly just like real birds, in such a beautiful pattern 😉

Just before the fatigue bar would end, I managed to find land…

…That really ends the tour.

Oh, no wait, I want to include a screenshot of the back of Ironforge at night, just because 🙂

(Argus, get out of the way!)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone 🙂

  1. Nice screenshots, i love the tiny moonkin, so cute! and i love this series, always nice to see the world from above.

    Fuselight By The Sea have one quest for alliance players and it’s just send you to Fuselight town in Blasted Land, so no wonder anyone will forget this place, i think this is a lost chance for Blizzard, goblin towns are always one of the best places in Azeroth, this place have exploding sheep! i remember being so excited to see them first time, i asked if hunters can tame them, people told me “no” … but in Legion you can, and there is one in Elwynn Forest.

    BTW, have you seen the cave in Dun Morogh where there is a large beer keg and 2 dwarfs standing around camp fire? it is above Ironforge.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to appreciate it 🙂

      Oh, I see, about Fuselight By The Sea. Yeah forgotten all about it.

      Hah, yeah, those exploding sheep, I have a friend (Hunter) who runs around with it.

      Hmm…I am not sure! Thank you a ton for the tip, I will hunt down that cave you speak of 🙂

  2. The first two areas you hit are really stunning. I hadn’t noticed how well they transition together (I set the shot of Loch Modan on the right and Badlands on the left as my new desktop). Normally I’ll switch my focus to a web browser or discord or something when I’m flying from zone to zone, maybe I should pay closer attention to how everything fits together next time.

    Also, I had just hit Fuselight the other day with my sister, otherwise I would’ve completely forgotten about it as well! We had finished up questing in Eastern Plaguelands with Fiona & Co and took a rocket from Light’s hope Chapel all the way down to Fuselight. We had a lot of fun poking the explosive sheep :). I was kind of disappointed that there were no quests there, though, only the teleporter.

    1. Aw, thank you for your thoughtful comment, Zeshio 🙂 A screenshot of mine adorn your computer now? That’s so awesome :)) You picked one of my favorites from it, too!

      I honestly tend to do the same, flightpatch or my own flight, one second after I find myself in a web browser. I try to cut back on that and just focus on the moment instead. It’s a good practice to do.

      Ah, still questing wth your sister, how lovely 🙂 Yeah! I remember that now too, from Light’s Hope! It is a little odd indeed, such a detailed area yet no quests to be found. Maybe in the future. Thanks again 🙂

  3. Lovely images, as always. You spoil us 🙂
    The moonkins are adorable 😀
    I happened to have Ben Webster playing “Stardust” in the background while reading this post. Music fitted imho, even tho almost all screenshots are in daylight. Maybe something about stars, and moon and poetry.

    1. Thank you so much 🙂 Yes, aww those Moonkins. Blizzard changed the buff, so it was no longer “played” time, so they have moved on /sniffles. (Before the hotfix, the 5 days they would stay with you was /played time, so that meant they would have been around until New Years or so!)

      Oh how nice to listen to music like that while reading blogs with lots of screenshots 🙂 Sometimes I find it, that Slideshows and music is almost calming, in a way. I wish one could make those Slideshows full screen. And that I had two monitors, one for gaming, another one for Slideshows. Hmmm…
