Where Would You Visit?

I got my inspiration this afternoon from the WoW blogosphere. Alunaria’s post asks “which place would you visit, if you could somehow transfer it from WoW to real life – and why? Or, if the world of Azeroth suddenly would change forever, … where is the one place you would go to, to see it one last time?”

WoWScrnShot_100217_160334These two questions definitely have different answers for me. The first one took a little thought. I suppose if I could get a potion of water breathing I would love to visit Vashjir. How cool would it be to meet a giant sentient sea creature? Or see all the strange glowing deep sea fish? I always quest there instead of Hyjal when I get my alts to Cata, partly because it is so different and partly because it is so quiet. Everyone loves to hate that zone so it’s always empty and peaceful. I suppose some of my fondness for it stems from the fact that I spent a ton of time there on my druid, zooming around in aquatic form and picking herbs for hours on end. So relaxing.

WoWScrnShot_100217_155308.jpgAs for where I’d go to visit one last time if WoW were closing or getting another Cataclysm? That one’s easy. Ulduar. The couple times I’ve thought I was quitting the game for good, I’ve always logged my priest out in front of Ulduar, riding her iron-bound protodrake. Even after all these years, some of my best memories of the game were made in that raid. I was learning how to be a hardcore raider, and I was accomplishing things I never knew I could do. At a time when my real life was in a very bad place, Ulduar was a perfect distraction. It also helped that the raid was gorgeous and the fights were fun as hell. Except XT. Eff that guy and his tantrums. As for a specific spot, I love Vezax’s room and the path leading down to it. I can still remember the first time I saw those amazing stained-glass windows.

Thanks for the blog inspiration Alunaria, and gratz on the real life level up!

  1. Aw, so happy to hear I inspired you. Thank you for the grats, mon! 😉

    And thank you for sharing this, was a great read 🙂

    I am both intimidated and amazed by the water, and I really like to swim around in WoW too. Vashj’ir is so mysterious.

    I understand your fondness for Ulduar. It was a major raid for me too. Those glass-windows are indeed absolutely beautiful. There are some similar to those in Tomb of Sargeras too, I think?

    • Ooohhh! I haven’t done any raiding in a few patches, so I haven’t seen the Tomb of Sargeras yet. Maybe this will motivate me to brave LFR so I can see it!
