Deadwood Village in Felwood

Felwood is not the first zone that comes to mind when I think of all the beautiful places in the World of Warcraft universe, but still, there are some enchanting, atmospheric places here, like Deadwood Village, inhabitated by Furbolgs.

The Deadwood tribe of furbolgs are corrupted and hostile, so it is not a peaceful place to be, but I think it is very beautiful here, especially with all the illuminated honey globs hanging everywhere, it's magical in an otherwise dark and sad place. The details shown around this village are also very impressive.

As mentioned, the villagers here are not of the friendly kind, and there are lots of quests and killing of these furbolgs that raises your reputation with the furbolgs of the Timbermaw Hold, the only friendly furbolg tribe, if you can prove to them that you are an ally, that is. In Deadwood Village you can find Warriors, Pathfinders and Gardeners (that is so cute).

Eldr'naan Cloth

I'd like to show you one of the most distinctive armor sets in this game, the Eldr'naan cloth set, here shown by Ahgony the Warlock.

I would lie if I said I think this is a pretty outfit, but pretty isn't always what we are going for, hehe, and  there are some amazing details here. This is a all cloth set, and the required level for all items are 68, except the off-hand item which requires level 65. The whole set is a Bind on Equip (BoE) random world drop, so the easiest way to get this is to check the AH (I really recommend the addon Auctionator for this)


Head - Eldr'naan Hood
Shoulder - Eldr'naan Shoulderpads
Chest - Eldr'naan Jerkin
Wrist - Eldr'naan Bracelets
Hands - Eldr'naan Gloves
Waist - Eldr'naan Belt
Legs - Eldr'naan Pants
Feet - Eldr'naan Boots
Off-hand - Eldr'naan Scepter

This item set has a few optional colors, like the Embrace of the Viper set, which is identical to the outfits of the Druids of the Fang in Wailing Caverns, this is a leather set in violet and bronze. There is also a turquoise and brown cloth version, the Arachnidian Regalia. In addition I'd like to mention the Hibernal and Venomshroud sets that are identical to the Eldr'naan set (makes it easier to collect a set).

Character presentation: Niht the Mage

Niht is my rude and sassy Night Elf Mage, she's alot of fun but kinda naughty! If I would ever be any good at PvP (which I am NOT), Niht would be the first in line to anoy fellow players. I mostly play horde characters, but I can't help my self to sometimes roll an alliance character or two ;) Niht is not the first alliance char I've played, but she is my first (and only) mage, and I absolutly love her! I am not that thrilled about Night Elves, but a mage Night Elf was so new and exciting, and she looks awesome, right?!

Niht is the name of the norse female giant Natt (Night) in continental germanic mythology. She was set to ride the skies on her horse Rimfakse to make it nighttime, as Dag (Day) was set to ride his horse Skinfakse to make it daytime. She is also said to be the grandmother of Thor the thunder god. Just to summon up; the character is from norse mythology but the name is a variation found in continental germanic mythology.

Niht has always been kind of a loner, she seems to always be adventuring the world alone, and I think she is kinda happy with this arrangement, maybe this is the reason for her lack of people skills? Niht is a tailor and a herbalist, selling the herbs to make a living and tailoring for her more artistic side, she tends all her proffesions wel, although she is more of a living on the road person.

Beeing a Night Elf and choosing the magical way of beeing a mage, makes Niht kind of an rebel, but she has always loved studying the arcane magic.

War Paint Mail

I've been collecting some item sets, and I'd like to show them off, starting with this black and red one - the War Paint Mail set. I think it looks very good, here shown by Ahdri the Hunter

This set is all mail and have a level range from 16 to 23, the items are BoE, random world drops (all green quality), so the easiest way to get them is to go shopping at the Auction House. It shouldn't be that hard to find them at the AH considering their low level range. I would like to recommend the addon Auctionator, as it enables you to create shoping lists which make it so much easier to hunt for specific items over time.

(Shield - War Paint Shield - not shown here)

In this last picture I have added some items to make the set look a bit more complete.
Head - Felstone Helm - BoE world drop, check the AH, requires lvl 58
Shoulder - Ravager's Mantle - BoE world drop, requires lvl 38
Crossbow - Sinewed Crossbow - BoE world drop, requires lvl 70

Violet Dream

This amazing scenery is taken somewhere north in Winterspring on my priest, back when she was the worgen Rada. I thought it would be a beautiful pic to tell that I'm (hopefully) back after a long period with lack of interest and crappy internett connections...
