The Mines of Moria

One day, while Anou was out on a mission, her adventuresome spirit and avid curiosity lead her to this cave. As she descended into its darkness, the bright light of her staff lighting each footstep, she felt like she was on the set of Lord of the Rings, discovering the Mines of Moria.

This is currently my desktop wallpaper. ;)

WoD Scenery

This expansion has been my favorite so far since my beginnings during the Burning Crusade! The landscapes are by far the most beautiful I've seen! I like how smoothly the story and questing unfolds, bringing me logically from one place to the next. Having decided to level Anou first, I don't feel the usual pressure of a level grind (because DPS are a dime a dozen for end content), so I randomly go off exploring, I click on anything that can be clicked, hunt all the silver portraits that appear on my mini map. I really like the Bonus Objectives, giving me a break from the norm if and when I so choose. At first the Garrison bothered me, because they plunked it down right at the beginning when I wasn't remotely bored yet, and I felt there was too much to do there, preventing me from moving forward. But now, it's there, I can return whenever I want (smart move to add a Garrison hearthstone), but I'm not obliged to do anything there anymore. It is nice to have somewhere where I get rested XP, yet can fish, cook, mosey around, and be alone. Good work, Blizz! <3

Here are some breath-taking vistas from the new zones...

The Garrison

I must admit, even though Anou is Horde and an evil Warlock to boot, her sensitive inner side was upset at having to destroy the trees and natural beauty of the landscape to make her Garrison. She would have completely bypassed that entire part of the game, except... Thrall made her. /sadface

The ideal place to park a Garrison. Pre-demolition.

Year of the Warlock

One day in LFR...

No. There weren't seven Warlocks, no. Not at all. You can't prove anything.

Lamplight on the Cobbled Path

Anoukisse was out exploring again, something she gets distracted with while doing other things such as prospecting. (Lyv has begged and begged her for that staff from the Dwarven archaeology fragments for a tmog outfit of purple epicness—Staff of Sorcerer-Thane Thaurissan.) On her way to a digsite, the glow from lamp posts along the semi-cobbled path through the mountains from Strahnbrad made her pause. Click click click went my "camera" as Anou posed for screenshots in her Beautiful outfit.

Hallow's End Funny Business

Posthumous Humor, by Lyv the Hallowed

Then she got an idea. An awful idea! Lyv got a wonderful, awful idea! "I know just what I'll do," the priest laughed in her throat.... So, she headed to Orgrimmar to carry out her plan.

(Notice how the G.N.E.R.D.S. lightbulb fizzles if you're a priest in shadowform. /giggle.)
"Little miss Muffet
Sat on her tuffet
Eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider
Who sat down beside her
And frightened miss Muffet away."
