Category Archives: Screenshots
A little bit of an Alliance versus Horde theme today. Have to say I was pretty amazed at the Orgrimmar shots! Where should I head next?
Did a couple of requests from the Consortium thread tonight. Thanks to Supes for passing on the /console commands to improve the quality and format of the screenshot save files!
The files in my screenshots folder are up to 30mb/each in size so for the sake of practicality (and my server’s bandwidth!) I’ve converted them from the TGA to high quality JPG files. If you’re especially interested in any of them let me know and I can upload the original files.
Also a special shoutout to [Cthulhu Ftagn] who I’ve learned has (bizarrely!) had a great panogramic screenshots thread going on MMO-Champion forums for the last couple of week. Definitely worth checking out!
Have been running WoW in triple-screen mode lately for a change. My setup runs with triple 27″ DELL U2711 screens so it makes for a pretty cool immersive experience! One cool thing I realised is that screenshots were saved at that same 7680×1440 resolution. I ended up taking a bunch of different shots to test it out:
Finally here’s a quick phone pic of how the screens are setup:
Let me know if there’s any locations you think might make cool shots and I’ll see what I can do :)
I was recently looking through some of my old warcraft notes and stumbled across a folder called ‘BC Preparation’. Some years back in the months leading up to the release of The Burning Crusade I had evidently collected a bunch of documents and maps to help me plan for the expansion. Some of the contents I remembered well but other stuff, like this chart, I had long forgotten.
This is a chart that someone put together that details the attunements needed to get into the endgame instances. Although I went through it all at the time I had forgotten how much there was to it all! They’ve long since removed the requirements for these attunements and I don’t doubt that a majority of players these days have no idea how it worked.
Have been working on a few things in Photoshop lately and put this together over the weekend. It’s not really for anything, just a bit of playing around. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out just the same!
The verse was written by [Carl Sandburg] in 1918. Apart from being an interesting commentary on human nature I thought the verse used in the image was an interesting fit for the druid.
I find that one of the more fun things about the design process is starting out with just a vague concept and building on it. Anyone got any similar stuff to share?
So patch 3.3 is upon us! After logging in to check out the new patch stuff like the Random LFG system and achievements I ended up having a pretty fun time.
Later on a friend, Gurry, linked the [Battered Hilt] rare drop he’d just won in the new instance. Having read up on Quel’Delar I was only too happy to part with a small amount of gold in exchange for it!
Off I went! The questline was pretty cool with a lot of little scripted scenes included. Seeing Blood Queen Lana’thyl, Being allowed into the Horde area in Dalaran, Fighting the Quel’delar Blade in the Halls of Reflection and visiting a special post-Kil’jaeden Sunwell were definitely the highlights.
I was somewhat disappointed with how easy it was and how quickly I was able to get through it. I think rare drop farming and harder instances would have made this more special. Although I was happy to get my iLvL 251 [Lightborn Spire] at the end I was somewhat reminded of the same empty feeling I had finishing my epic flight form quest – why wasnt there more?
Here’s a few screenshots of the highlights:
So occasionally when I’m on my [Black Qiraji Battle Tank] someone will say to me “I bet you get a lot of whispers about that mount”. It recently occurred to me that the best way to show how much of an understatement that is would be to keep a record of the whispers I got over a month or two and put them all together.
So I did…and here you go! :)
Just a quick update to let you know I’m still alive :) I have three big new articles coming that will each individually knock your socks off! a lot of work for me to get done though and never enough time. Thankfully my new EeePC is giving me a lot of extra time on lunches and in transit to and from articles are progressing.
Thought I might share a screenshot of my raptor pet farming setup. The screenshot below is both of my 23″ monitors combined:
I can quite easily just sit back and watch episodes of the office while I wait for any spawns at the three seperate camps. The sad reality is that I havent really spent much time 3-box camping at all though, usually I just log them all in a few times each day to check the spawn points. Two darting hatchlings and a leaping hatchling so far aint bad though right? :)
