Portal to Everbloom

SW1

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.

 

Through Your Interface – Day 7: Best Screenshot of the Year

Best Sceenshot of the Year
Show us the best screen shot you believe that you have ever taken and why you think it is the best (content, meaning, how you framed it, etc). 
I just can’t look through all of my screenshots cause there are just too many of them, but I found some good screenshots taken within the last year. The first two are from the Cataclysm beta when I flew around almost spam pressing my print screen button, the other two are just a few months old. It’s really hard to choose one which I think is the best, cause I like them all, so maybe you can help and tell me which one you think is the best of these four?

This is a red dragon in the Vermillion Redoubt in Twilight Highlands. I like the way the dragon sits there, he/she looks so proud, and I like how the red colors of the dragon and the tree balance the screenshots.

As you can see this is Stormwind seen from the farms behind the city with the water as foreground. The screenshot might be a little heavy on the left cause of the tree. But I really like the new water effect reflecting the city.

This is taken from inside the Greymane Manor in the Gilneas zone. I wasn’t sure how to catch the light coming from the window, this might not be a very good screenshot after all, but there is still something I like about it.

This is of course from the Faerie Circle event in the Whispering Forest. I love this place and event, and that might be why I also love this screenshot. But I think it’s also a good screenshot cause it catches the event in a good way, the faerie dragon’s song around the circle of mushrooms, the yellow beams and green effects, the trees around and starry sky frames it and you can even see the mist floating over the circle.
