Portal to Everbloom


If you play Alliance you might have noticed something new in Stormwind or more precisely right outside the Mage Quarter in Stormwind. I think it was added in the 6.0.2 patch, but it has been on the beta for a while now, I just haven’t noticed it before because I rarely play Alliance. I was just flapping around on my moonkin when I saw it. A big portal that instantly made me think of the Emerald Dream so I got very excited, but then I saw the purple tents that must belong to the Kirin Tor. I searched for it on the net and found this on Wowpedia:

The Kirin Tor expedition was sent to establish presence within the overgrowths of Gorgrond and create an alternate access point to Draenor since the Dark Portal was shut down, but all contact with the mages of the Violet Bluff was lost after they were overrun by the forces of Primals, led by a fearsome genesaur named Yalnu. Archmage Sol’s brain has been infested by spores that turned her and most of the expedition against their allies, and a portal link to a Kirin Tor camp located at the outskirts of Stormwind City is still active, attracting the fearsome genesaur and his underlings towards Azeroth, where they can spread unchecked without their eternal enemies, the Breakers opposing them.

So this is the portal to the new Warlords of Draenor 5-man dungeon The Everbloom. I didn’t know that so I thought I’d write a small post about it just in case anyone else was wondering.


Solstice Challenge: Day 11-12

Matty wrote a post a few days ago, about how the fall and winter can be dark and sad, and has now started a challenge where the topic is light:

Twenty-One Days, starting today, December 1, of things in Azeroth of Light Screenshots, from now until December 21. This works for both sides of the equator, seeing how we’re getting darker days in the North, the South is getting lighter. The only hitch I will add is you have to add a caption or haiku to your screenshot. The topic/theme is light, and all its incarnations.

Day 11

Day 12


We are agents of the Kirin Tor, the Magus Senate of Dalaran. We were assigned to keep an eye on Karazhan and Medivh, in case things got out of hand. Which they did…very quickly, after Medivh disappeared.
