Because I had so much fun with my last World of Warcraft based entry I’m going to make this a semi-regular thing. At least until I get bored. Hope you’re ready to get down and nerdy! All you players, enjoy! All you not-players, prepare to be converted!
Today’s topic is…
Nine Things I Found While Flying Around Draenor
(May or may not contain spoilers for I don’t know, just play the damn game and stop bothering me.)
So I finally got off my ass and finished the damn achievement that allows me to use my flying mounts again. It was a long and gruelling task, but the pay-off was great. Free at last! And of course the first thing I did, because that’s what I always do, is hopping on my carpet and flying around Draenor. Literally around the entire continent. I love doing that! Do you even know the kind of things you discover that way?! It’s awesome!
The good thing since Cataclysm is that new continents are no longer closed off at the coastline as they still mostly are in old Azeroth, like Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor. If you fly or ride around those places you generally see a lot of disenchanting rock and some grass. But since we got our old world flying permits in Cata, landscapes on the outer rims of continents became a little more whimsical.
Now, I love flying around places. I love it so much, back in the old days I’d stock up on Elixirs of Water Walking, climbed on my mount and went around the world like that. Obviously, this is easier with a flying mount. Even more obviously, this tradition had to be upheld with Draenor. And I found some stuff.
1.These random chairs in Gorgrond
Who the hell puts chairs in the middle of fucking nowhere? Blizzard, that’s ‘oo. I had a good laugh.
2. Murdered Draenei
And just like that, I stopped laughing, because less than a hundred feet away:
3. This weird little cage with a skeleton in it
How? Why? Who? No idea.
4. This weird orc drinking with a skeleton in a cave in Talador
A cave full of booze. A lone orc. A skeleton. This is either the beginning of a love story or a really elaborate joke.
5. This pretty cave
Btw, if you click on the glittery flower in the middle it will attack you. Draenor, ladies and gentlemen: Where the mountains are huge, the plains are endless, and the flora is hungry.
6. Chillin’ with my new best friend Barney Farley, ogre dancer extraordinaire
You can find this guy in Nagrand near the Ring of Blood, putting on the ritz and a show.
7. This random island north of Highmaul
Okay, I don’t remember if this place is in any way relevant to the Highmaul raid (probably isn’t), but there’s an island. With skeletons on it. And a disappointingly empty cave.
8. This sweet old hermit and his dog
Just a sweet old man in the south of Talador, and while you’re here why don’t you help him with his little Iron Horde problem?
9. John and Yoko of Draenor
I mean, a pair of lovey-dovey Draenei having a picnic while talking about giving peace a chance? See what you did there, Blizzard.
And that’s all for this week. I’m not really sure what I’ll do for next week’s instalment, soooo it’s a surprise! (I hate surprises. I’m sure you do, too, but I’m mean like that.)
