WoW Wednesday: Twelve Things I Found Flying Around the Coasts of Pandaria

Pandaria might just be my favourite expansion when it comes to visuals. I mean, look at this:

This is serene as fuck! I had something similar to this as my desktop background for a while. You really get the feeling that Blizzard went all out trying to create something beautiful, and if you compare it to earlier expansions your jaw should drop by how far graphics technology has come in only, what, no even ten years.

And because the guys at Blizzard have a sense of humour, they also keep adding funny little bits into the game. Because I already did one of these lists for Draenor, today you’re getting the previous expansion, Pandaria. Look, I even prettied myself up for you with my fall gear:

So I did the math and going through my old screenshots trying to find the right ones was actually taking up more time than just doing the tour again, so that’s what I did. See how nice I am? Here’s some things and places where quests don’t necessarily lead you. All along the coastline. Enjoy!

1. This reference to Up north of Jade Forest

 I mean…

There’s also this Pandaren called Kar:

And this grummle with a huge backpack:

2. Sri-La

Maybe this shouldn’t be part of this list because I think there was actually a quest leading there,  but on the off chance that someone missed a quest or two, here it is anyway. This is a small Pandaran village off the coast of Jade Forest and you’ll know by the wreckage of Horde and Alliance ships all around that their peaceful life has just taken an unexpected turn.

The good people here enjoy fishing:

Lots of fishing:

WoWScrnShot_101315_135823

And now there’s interesting Goblin wreckage to look at while fishing (you can tell it’s a Goblin zeppelin because it’s crashed):

3. This pandaren fisher who doesn’t like Alliance

This looks cosy, doesn’t it? Not if you’re Alliance, because this fella right here will start whacking you with his fishing rod:

4. This little Pandaren fisher village in Krasarang Wilds:

WoWScrnShot_101315_141512

There’s this little guy with his giant goldfish:

WoWScrnShot_101315_141534

And this kid who looks exactly like the other kid who wants to be a shaman when he grows up:

WoWScrnShot_101315_141645

Maybe they’re twins?

And this kid flying a kite:

WoWScrnShot_101315_141714

5. Where Serpent’s Spine meets the sea:

WoWScrnShot_101315_142454

And from the other side…

WoWScrnShot_101315_142730

Eeegh!

6. This song reference:

This is a little pandaren called Adele:

WoWScrnShot_101315_144736

She’s rolling around a place called Widening Deep. Get it yet?

7. A big unfriendly kraken:

WoWScrnShot_101315_144941

There is actually a quest where you have to beat this thing. Apparently though, it doesn’t die, because it’s still floating around near the northern coast of Townlong Steppes, so if you’re planning on going for a swim there… don’t.

Generally swimming is a bad idea, there are big evil things in the water everywhere:

WoWScrnShot_101315_145548

8. This little cave north-west of Kun Lai Summit:

WoWScrnShot_101315_145852

Oh, what could be in there?

WoWScrnShot_101315_145907

Huh? A hozen giving a drum solo? On four bongos? I mean, there’s also bones…

WoWScrnShot_101315_150027

But mostly just this guy.

9. This hut containing a tuskarr and a hozen:

WoWScrnShot_101315_150146

 The tuskarr is named Wally. So… does that mean I found Wally?

WoWScrnShot_101315_150206

10. This flying tortoise:

WoWScrnShot_101315_151339

If you /wave at it, it will follow you for a bit, but it’s pretty slow.

WoWScrnShot_101315_151417

11. This woman swimming laps north of Kun Lai:

WoWScrnShot_101315_150719

And her enthusiastic pandaren trainer:

WoWScrnShot_101315_150747

12. The Secret Aerie:

Tucked between Kun Lai and Jade Forest you’ll find a little pandaren mountain village:

WoWScrnShot_101315_151857

Hard working pandaren building boats, because everyone on Pandaria is always somehow hammering on a boat:

WoWScrnShot_101315_152007

Arguing about pugs:

WoWScrnShot_101315_152029

Training falcons:

WoWScrnShot_101315_152051

This woman hacking on fish bones (what even?):

WoWScrnShot_101315_152409

This seems to be the boss:

WoWScrnShot_101315_152116

…okay then.

 And that’s all from this expansion. Next week, we’ll look at skeletons. Jup. Lotsa skeletons.
