Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 29

Today's is "Lucky".

Not sure how "lucky" I really am here. I mean, I obtained "Scotty's Lucky Coin" and transformed myself into his likeness...but...



...my sword is sticking out my butt?!?!?!?!

Am I a spritecicle or spritepod?

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 27

Today's is "10 Minutes from Home".

This should be easy...or so I thought. My plan was to jump on one of my toons, take them to their "home" city, travel in a random direction from there for 10 minutes and then take a screenie.

HAH!

Fat chance of that happening. I jumped on my human, took him to Stormwind, put him on his flying mount, spun him around in circles (which is easy to do with a Trackball type mouse) and then sent him on his way on auto pilot.

Where was I 10 minutes later? Flying into the invisible wall along the northeastern mountain range between Eastern Plaguelands and Ghostlands.



How boring.

I hearthed back to SW and decided this time I'd run for 10 minutes in some random direction. I knew I wouldn't get too far on foot because of trees and buildings so I decided that I would strafe left or right when enountering such things. After 10 minutes of doing this I ended up dying from 'Fatigue' off the coast of Westfall.



Again, how boring.

I decided to switch toons and try from another "home" city. Time to get the Death Knight. Surely I can get someplace interesting from Ebon Hold right?

Ummmm....wrong again.

I got on his flying mount, spun him around and took off. I ended up dying from 'Fatigue' out at sea south of Booty Bay. Sigh.

Next, I figured a paid gryphon flight might be slower than my personal mount. Maybe I can get some place interesting that way. I figured I'd fly from Booty Bay to Light's Hope Chapel and would cross over someplace good to take a screenshot of.

I was wrong...again. With the new guild perk that increases flight speeds I ended up landing at Light's Hope after 9 minutes and 43 seconds.

/pulls hair out

Ok...this time it's got to work. I'm going to talk to the flight master in Light's Hope, close my eyes and just click like crazy on the screen. My mouse has to land on a flight path eventually and off I'll go. I will do this until my 10 minutes are up and take a screenie of wherever I am at.

I was on my way to Sentinel Hill, in Westfall, when the timer ran out. This was the fourth flight path I was on. The timer ran out just as I was crossing the mountain range between Searing Gorge and Blasted Lands.

So, here you go...this is where I was 10 minutes from home.

















Not much better, but it will have to do.

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 24 & 26

I've really hosed this up. Apparently on the 24th I thought it was the 25th and I posted the wrong topic. Then, on the 25th I started working on the post I was supposed to do for the 24th and got sidetracked and didn't complete it.

So, today, I give you the topics for the 24th and the 26th...hopefully without error.

(the 24th)

Topic is "In the Background"

Throughout WoW there is a LOT of stuff to be found in "the background". Mostly it's scenery, landscapes, NPCs and other players. My choice, however, is a conversation that takes place in the background of a boss fight.

Within The Arcatraz dungeon are two of my favorite bosses in all of WoW, 'Dalliah the Doomsayer' and 'Wrath-Scryer Soccothrates'. They stand on opposite sides of a large and somewhat triangular room. When you first enter the room you can hear the two of them bickering like an old married couple. As you begin to attack one of them the other will stand there and kind of "egg you on".

To me this is one of the funniest things ever. I'll go there every now and then to let them beat on me just so I can hear what they have to say. To this day it still makes me giggle like it did on my first encounter with them back during 'The Burning Crusades'.

























(Monday the 26th)

Today's topic is "Entrance".

We have many entrances in WoW...entrances to buildings, caves, tunnels, the woods, dungeons & raids...and more I'm most likely forgetting. The following is one of the entrances I like the most and can be found in Booty Bay. It is the entrance to Boucher's Cauldron, where the Alchemy Trainer & Supplier are.

Look! It's a LOVE BEAD CURTAIN!!!!!!!!

That's so grooooovy man! I wonder if I can get any insence in here?


 In other news, I'm in the process of moving. I'm not sure if I will be around to post my screenshots for the rest of the month. While I have time today I will most likely get them taken and either schedule them to post on the appropriate days or will post them later tonight. Sorry if I'm breaking the rules here Tycer.

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 25

Today's is "Culture"



















World of Warcraft was my first step into the culture that is MMORPG.

I was no stranger to computer gaming. I had been actively playing

- SIMs (and all expansions)
- SIMs2 (and all expansions)
- SIMs3 (and most expansions)
- Sid Meier's Pirates
- Sid Meier's Golf
- Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2
- Command & Conquer: The First Decade
- The Elder Scrolls III (Morrowind, Tribunal & Bloodmoon)
- Age of Empires
- and Civilization (III and IV)

 when Dharm bought me WoW for a Christmas present in 2006. I was immediately hooked and have been playing WoW since.

I still play a few of the above mentioned games, but I don't enjoy them nearly as much as I do when I play an MMO. Even though I'm not a real "chatty cathy", and tend to do a lot of solo playing while online, there is something to be said for seeing others online doing the same thing I am...playing a game and having fun. Sometimes I find myself just standing still watching others around me busy doing whatever it is they are doing.

I've tried a few other MMOs and have enjoyed them a lot. Even though I usually played alone I really didn't feel alone...unlike when playing my normal computer games.

If I could flip a switch and make all my normal computer games into an MMO of some sort, where the play style would still be basically the same but with other people around to chit-chat with or do things with, I would be one happy camper.

I am thankful for Dharm buying me WoW and introducing me to the MMO culture of gaming.

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 23

Today's is "Yellow".



I couldn't get any more "yellow" unless I was a banana...or a lemon.

Razikiel's outfit, which is not a real transmog and just a screenie of MogIt, consists of:

Head - Robust Helm
Shoulders - Stockade Pauldrons
Chest - Glorious Breastplate
Back - Brightcloth Cloak
Waist - Glorious Belt
Legs - Glorious Legplates
Wrists - Flamebane Bracers
Hands - Flamebane Gloves
Weapons - Renataki's Soul Slicer
Feet - Glorious Sabatons
Tabard - Arathor Battle Tabard
Shirt - Bright Yellow Shirt

I'm really diggin' on that sword. Might just have to beg some friends who have Archaeology at 225 or higher to run Zul'Gurub with me to try to get it. My only toon with an Archaeology skill that high is my Paladin...but that sword could go pretty well with my Death Knight's transmog.

Although, I'd have to switch his outfits around. His yellow/gold and red outfit is normally his Blood spec outfit. But, he dual wields in his Frost spec...so a swap of mogs would be needed for the sword to work.

Killing 4 Birds with One Stone

When it comes to WoW I have a serious case of ADD. Not only do I get distracted by shinies, I have many alts that I bounce amongst. I'd like to introduce you to Humphrey, my newest level 90 toon. He is lucky number 7 when it comes to level 90 toons that I have. And might not be my last. The next expansion is still pretty far off.

Wishes he was a Druid.



So color coordinated.



Many years ago Humphrey started out as a Rogue. It was so long ago that I don't remember what race he was...but I do remember he was a Rogue. I remember this because I learned that I didn't mix well with the Rogue class and never leveled him past level 13 or so.

He ended up sitting, collecting dust as a name place-holder, in my selection of toons until Cataclysm was released. He then became a Worgen Warrior. Again, poor Humphrey didn't get very far...maybe level 20 or so. I couldn't get past the constant sniffing sound that Worgen make.

I don't remember when I turned him into a Dwarf Mage. I do remember wanting to level him so I could have my own personal portal jockey for those holiday events that send us all across Azeroth.

I didn't level as quickly as I wanted and ended up just logging in on him from time to time to do some Battlegrounds. (I'm pretty bad at PvP and would usually just run around sheeping people for fun or using Frost Nova as I followed a flag carrier)

Since the release of Pandaria I have been slowly leveling him. I finally hit the mark last night and achieved the following Acheivements:

Why, yes, yes you should have Major Payne.

Not hiding under fat Panda anymore.


















Now, from the pictures you might see only 3 Achievements. The 4th, in my eyes, was beating Major Payne. It took me quite a while to put together a team that could beat him without fail. Each time I beat him I still get a great thrill and felt it only right to have Humphrey ding 90 in doing so.

The 4 dead birds are:

- beating Major Payne
- dinging level 90 from the pet battle
- gaining 'Quintessential Quintet'
- gaining '200 Daily Quests Complete'

My stone is:

- Having one more level 90 in my arsenal of alts

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 22

Today's is "A Room".

Yay! We made it! Don't cross the bridge. Just jump the railing and run in. Don't wait for anyone...just run in!!


The Deadmines is/was one of the first dungeons we would experience on a new toon. Pre-Cataclysm getting to the entrance/portal into The Deadmines was a feat in itself. There were a lot of things we had to kill along the way...provided we didn't get lost in all those tunnels. If we did get lost we had even more things to kill. There was a great sigh of relief once the entrance/portal was in sight.


Where's the tank? Let the tank get the keg and light the cannon. ONLY THE TANK! Everyone else get back!




One of the biggest things was to let the tank pick up the powder keg and light the cannon. If someone else did it was sure to be a wipe.


(in my best Chunk impersonation)  "HEYYYY YOUUUU GUYYYYSSSSSSS!!!!




Getting to the last room in The Deadmines was a thrill. Not solely because it was the last room, but, for me at least, it was the first time I remember seeing something from the real world referenced in game that jumped out and smacked me in the face.

 (If you haven't seen the movie 'The Goonies' shame on you. Go rent it now and watch it!)

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 21

Today's is "Slow".



Will you just look at how long it took me to get 75 battle pets to level 25!?!?!?!
(that's almost 7 months)

And look at how long it took me to get just one pet to 25!?!?!?!
(that's almost 1 month)

Talk about "slow"!!!!

(if you don't remember...pet battles were given to us at Mists' release back on Sept. 25th of 2012)

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 20

Today's is "Stairs".




There are TONS of stairs across the lands of Azeroth. The set of stairs pictured above, however, are the ones that stand out the most to me.

This staircase is inside the dungeon Zul'Farrak, in Tanaris.

This used to be one of the most daunting dungeons for me to run way back when...and this staircase event was the worst part of it. It was the first gauntlet-type event I had ever experienced...and died during many times. But, it was also one of the most fun fights I had ever encountered.

It's one of those "love-hate" relationships I have with this staircase.

Monday, August 19, 2013

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 19

Today's is "Lost".


While playing around underneath Stormwind one day I came across some "lost" citizens. I told them how to get back to the Trade District, but apparently they didn't want to. The next time I passed by this same spot they were still standing there.

(we can't get under Stormwind anymore but I couldn't really think of any other way to portray "lost")

Sunday, August 18, 2013

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 18

Today's is "Someone You Spoke To Today".

When I first logged in today there was nobody online. So, I logged out and jumped over to another server. I ended up logging in on one of my bankers first. He ended up chatting up Kixa, an Orgrimmar bank NPC in the Valley of Strength.

Try as he might, he could not engage in much of a conversation with her though. She really likes to say, "Yea, whadda ya want?" a lot. Not to mention her obsessive use of "Don't be a stranger" at the end of every attempt at a conversation.
















(I think the Orc in the corner is hungry. It's scary how he's looking at my pet pig...like he's gonna chop him up any minute now with that big axe of his and make some bacon.)

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshot Challenge: Day 17

Today's is "Exercise".


Yep, I cheated again...it's video time!


video



Hope ya enjoyed it.

:o)

(Tycer you don't have to count this one if you don't want to. I was bored and the idea just came to me for this video...so I went with it.)

Friday, August 16, 2013

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 16

Today's is "Cooking".

Back during the Lich King expansion my Death Knight, Razikiel, was my main cooking toon. Not sure why, he wasn't the toon I played the most. But, anywhooo....he was. He is my one and only toon to have the Chef's hat.

While bored one day I decided to put together an outfit for him to wear with his cooking hat. The below picture shows what he looks like when he cooks, provided the outfit isn't stuffed away in his bank.




















This isn't a transmog outift...just clothes he switches into, whenever he cooks, with the assistance of the Outfitter addon.

His outfit consists of:

Head - Chef's Hat
Chest - Shadow Council Tunic
Legs - Legwraps of the Master Conjurer
Main Hand - Spider Splatter Mace
Off Hand - Steelscale Crushfish
Wrist - Gem Studded Bracelets
Neck - Golden Necklace
Finger - Black Ice

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 15

Today's is "The Best".

I've created a small collage of screenshots containing, in my eyes, "The Best" person I know in WoW.

She is kind, considerate, friendly, smart, funny, giving, goofy, lovely, has a heart of gold...I'm running out of adjectives here...she is all-round The Best! I give you Navimie.



The top three pictures are of a day I decided to surprise Navi. I created a baby toon on Dath'remar and whispered her to come see me. I then proceeded to give her a Pocket Reaver battle pet I leveled for her. She thanked me a lot and then turned around and gave me a Purple Puffer pet she saw I was missing. How thoughtful of her!

The next two pictures are of a day where Navi and got to goof off together.

I was in Karazhan, just arriving at the Chess Event, to get some pets when I see Navi log in. I asked her if she would like to join me and she said she would. It took us a few tries to beat the event, but we finally managed. Navi was at work and kept having to go "afk". I don't know, some 40 minutes or so later we finally killed Prince Malchezaar.

Navi collected the red polearm (I think), that she is sporting in the middle picture, off of him. It matches her transmog nicely I think.

The bottom picture is from when we were in Tempest Keep: The Eye, for more pets and a chance at a mount, after our Kara run. We had started the Kael'thas fight when Navi had to "afk" again. The fight got to the part where Kael floats up into the air and does a little light show before coming back down...but he never did...come back down that is.

For whatever reason the fight broke. I stood there dancing for roughly 10-15 minutes, while Navi was still "afk", and the fight never continued. When Navi did return she told me that she had to log out. I told her it was no problem and that we broke Kael'thas anyways and couldn't continue. (You'll notice I changed my gear...ran and t-mogged it on one of Navi's "afk"s...my other outfit looked horrible!)

This was the first time I had been able to group up with Navi to do anything in game...and it was an absolute blast...afk's and all.

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 14

Today's is "Trash".

Try as I might, I couldn't find any "trash" piles in the game anywhere. So, I figured I'd use the word in the sense of how we all refer to the large amount of mobs we need to kill in dungeons and raids before we can kill the boss(es).

I give you my favorite room of "trash" to kill...welcome to the Ball Room in Karazhan.


Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 13

Today's is "Fast".

I wasn't quite sure how I would portray "fast" in-game. There are a lot of things that can be done fast...questing, crafting, flying, old raid/dungeon running...then it dawned on me.

One of my favorite quests in Pandaria has some of those Warlock type teleporter gizmo thingies around the perimmiter of a room. The quest boss you fight uses them to bounce around the room. You can click on them as well and follow in his footsteps "fast". (The quest is "The Fall of Ga'trul" for Alliance only)

I love how my pet is following/flying with me.
On every toon I've done that quest on I make sure to stick around for a little bit and just play with the teleporter thingies. It's one example of the goofy stuff I do in game.

Monday, August 12, 2013

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 12

Today's is "Macro".

I actually don't use many macros. I have a hard time remembering what they do, let alone where the hell I put them on my action bars. Sadly, I'm more of a "point & click" kinda gal.

However, there is one macro I like to use every now and then. This macro I just love for when I'm in a dungeon, or raid, and someone keeps asking for "Recount" or "DPS meter". I press my handy-dandy macro and they see what you see in the picture below.



I borrowed/stole this idea from someone a few years ago. Can't remember if it was a fellow blogger or something I saw in some forums somewhere. But, I love it and have it in a handy spot on a few toons' action bars.

Sunday, August 11, 2013

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshot Challenge: Day 11

Today's is "I Love Doing This".




I just love flying on my mounts upside down...or doing loopdie-loops on them...when I'm bored.

Saturday, August 10, 2013

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 10

Today's is "Beverage".

I give you 'Jug of Wine'.




This item we could never drink in game. However, this item caused many of us grief during the Lich King days I'm sure...at least I know it did for me.

You see, this item was needed for one of the Dalaran Cooking Dailies. It could only be found in the 'One More Glass' building. Which means this item was heavily camped on the days this was needed for the daily.

Thankfully, I don't need to go looking for this jug anymore.



Friday, August 9, 2013

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 9

Today's is "2 O'Clock".

This one was a toughie. There isn't anything that happens at 2 O'clock in game...unless we make it happen or it's the Stranglethorn Fishing Tournament.

When I first read the list of topics for this challenge the fishing tournament is the first thing I thought of. So, this past Sunday I made sure to log in for it and got the following screen shot: (timestamp is 5pm because I'm in EST zone)




Then, on Monday, I came across Tycer's post on the rules of the challenge.

Well phooie! We're not supposed to use previously taken shots. Blows that idea out of the water.

So, here I am on challenge day and I've got nothing.  :o(

I thought, "Ok, I'll just log into my toons and hope and pray that one of them is in a cool area for a screen shot". That was a bust...in my eyes at least. They were either in a city or bland environment. blech

Long-story-short, I have no screenie for today's challenge...unless Tycer accepts the fishing tourney one.  :o)

Thursday, August 8, 2013

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 8

Today's is "Peek-A-Boo".

video


Ok, so I cheated a little bit and made a series of screenshots. Ok, ok, ok...it's a video. But it's still screenshots, right????

Tuesday, August 6, 2013

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 6

Today's is "This Means A Lot To Me".

This was an easy one for me. Although it is not a screenshot from within the game, it does have to do with WoW.

One of our friend's is an artist. For my birthday one year he gave me a coffee mug. It wasn't any plain ol' ordinary mug mind you. No, no, no...this one was special. Our friend had painted it for me. Take a look see at the photo to see how he painted it. 




Whenever my partner and I would play WoW together we always ran around on "Draiko & Dharmsala". They were our 'go to' toons. We had worked on some other toons together, but always went back to "Draik-n-Dharm".

Our friend knew this. We had gotten him to try WoW for a little while. He didn't play WoW for that long...a year or less I think...but whenever he was on he was in trouble. Dharm and I were always going to rescue him from one place or another.

One night we saw him on his level 5 in Arathi Highlands. We asked him what in the world he was doing there at level 5 and he told us, "I was just following the roads, running around exploring". Mind you his level 5 toon was a gnome so he wasn't too far from Arathi...not like a level 5 human would have been...but still...he had to have died a lot along his travels.

Anyway, he knew how much I loved the game and how often I played on Draiko. So, he fashioned the above coffee cup for me. I think he told me he got the "mana" side of the cup from a moonberry juice or something he had in his bags.

There is nothing I have that is WoW related, in game or out, that means more to me than that coffee mug does. I absolutely love it. I don't even use it for my coffee. It sits on the top shelf of my desk out of harm's way.






Sunday, August 4, 2013

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Day 4

Day 4 of the challenge brings us the word "fresh".

I decided to use the following definition of the word and take a screenshot that reflects it:

"fresh: newly or just come or arrived"

This is what you would see if you were "fresh" to the game:

How I WoW

GrumpyElf, over at The Grumpy Elf, had a post the other day where he discusses his "first 200 days" of WoW playing. What he talks about is the fact that his main character has "dinged" 200 days old even though he has been playing WoW for more than 200 days (he started back in 2008 I believe). He also states that he has a variety of alts...none of which combined equal 200 days old.

GE also talks about what he has, and has not, done the most during that time.

This got me wondering about my toons' ages and what they have done/not done. I've been playing since December 2006. I surely have a toon that is "older" than GE's.

Or do I?

I opened up WoW and checked the /played time on one of my oldest toons, Thelandira. Thela wasn't the first toon, she was the third, I created back in 2006, but for quite some time she was my main and I played her the most.

So, how old is Thela? She is MUCH younger than I expected. Thela is a mere 87 days old (and some hours). That just seems.....wrong. She's not even my oldest toon...that would be Draiko. Draiko is 88, and was the second toon I ever created.

What's sad is that the first toon I ever created, Sheetahn, is only 53 days old. Now that is really, really wrong. Poor Sheetahn.

In the comments section of GE's post a few of the people that replied stated different stats for their toons. I decided I would check out some basic info/stats on my toons.

This resulted in me opening up Excel and creating a very basic spreadsheet to track the info. You can look at the ugly thing here if you like, but below are the grand totals I came up with.

These are the totals for the toons I play/have played the most:

  • Days Played - 447
  • Creature Kills - 582,481
  • Quests Done - 23,781
  • Dailies Done - 3,900
  • Honorable Kills - 17,449
  • Deaths - 3,769
  • Flight Paths Taken - 7,552
  • Dungeons Run - 2,427
  • Raids Run - 411
  • Pet Battles (non-pvp) - 5,237
  • Achievement Points - 42,330
  • Levels Acquired - 710

The following totals are for various toons/bankers I have that I don't play too often:

  • Days Played -56
  • Creature Kills - 36,231
  • Quests Done -3,066
  • Dailies Done - 159
  • Honorable Kills - 2,228
  • Deaths - 260
  • Flight Paths Taken - 369
  • Dungeons Run - 96
  • Raids Run - 1
  • Pet Battles (non-pvp) - 0
  • Achievement Points - 4,695
  • Levels Acquired -332
All of these totals are as accurate as they can be. With that in mind, some of these numbers are crazy high. What's scary is knowing that these numbers really don't reflect the entire history of my WoW playing.

'Days Played' is probably the most accurate (if not the only accurate) piece of information up there. The rest, I believe, is only as accurate as far back as when WoW initiated the Achievement system...which was back in October 2008 (according to the Wiki).

While the new system did track some information from beforehand, like certain dungeons/raids completed, most of it was brand new stuff being tracked for us to see. I'm curious as to what the 'real' data is for all my toons...even counting those toons that never reached more than level 10 or 20 and were deleted.

Now, what does all this show that I've been doing with my WoW time? By raw numbers I've been killing stuff...plain and simple...I've been a killing machine. I've killed a grand total of over 600k things across the lands of Azeroth.

That is so not like me in real life. I hate killing things IRL. If I find a bug or spider in my home I usually catch it and toss it out the front door rather than kill it. What a difference pixels make to my actions.

Now, I know that I really haven't just run around killing things in-game. Actually, if you were to ask me what I've done most I don't think I could answer you. I have done a lot of nothing and a little of everything. I've fished, cooked, pvp'd, quested, raided, pet battled, leveled more toons than I needed, crafted, farmed, explored, killed stuff, goofed off and then goofed off some more.

All-in-all I'm happy with what I've done during my time in Azeroth. There really isn't anything I regret doing or not doing. The game has kept me happy and content for some 500+ days of played time and some 1,000+ toon levels acquired...and I'm sure it will keep doing the same.

Tycertank's #WoWscreenshotaday Challenge: Days 1-3

This morning, while reading over at The Daily Frostwolf, I learned about a screenshot challenge being hosted by Tycertank over at Toonacious!. I'm a few days late, but according to the rules posted here, that's okay. I can still take part in the challenge.

In short, the contest is to post a screenshot a day throughout the month of August following a list of topics provided by Tycertank.

My writings here have been pretty sparse. However, I will do my best to keep up to date with the challenge. Below you will find my entries, for days one through three of the challenge, along with short descriptions of the screenshots.

Day 1 - Something Beginning with "N"

Many years ago our guild would do fun & silly things to celebrate our guild's anniversary. The above screenshot is of one of those silly things. For "N" I present you with a shot of our guild doing 'Naked Flagged Fishing'.

Simply put, we would head over to The Barrens, get naked, flag ourselves for PvP and then fish. Things would usually end up with all of us dead (depending on how many Horde came by). But, as you can see in the photo, sometimes the Horde players would join in on the fun. (dancing Tauren & fishing Troll both naked)

Day 2 - Incomplete

This photo can be taken in one of two ways...or both.

One Way - My lovely, little, Gnome Warlock came across an incomplete section of one of the canals in Stormwind (ok...it's a glitch...but I think it still counts) and decided to jump in and see what was up.

Other Way - Just look at that mess of a UI!!!!! This screenshot is back from the days of The Burning Crusade expansion. I was relatively new to the game and my UI was ALWAYS a work in progress...hence incomplete. Today my UI is much more minimal & streamlined than that mess above.

Day 3 - Skyline

This one was a toughie. When I think of skylines I can't help but think of real world metropolises (that doesn't look like it's spelled correct) like New York City. Well, we have no "New York Cities" in WoW. The closest, I feel, would be Dalaran...as we are shown in Redcow's photo entrant here.

The many varied pillars in Dalaran are the closest we have to real life skyscrapers in WoW. But I don't want to post a photo that another person has posted. What can I post?

Lylabean, over at The Harpy's Nest, posted the definitions of "skyline". After reading that it hit me and I knew exactly what to take of shot of and post for this entrant. I give you Ironforge Mountain.


So there you have it...my #WoWscreenshotaday entries for days one through three. Keep your eyes peeled for more.
