Warlords Of Draenor: Nostalgic Nagrand

Hello again champions! welcome to the last chapter of my leveling series. Here I will showcase some of the photos I managed to snap up of nagrand during my questing there. I really did enjoy this location. It sort of brought back that nostalgic feel to the old nagrand we all grew to love back on outland and I was hoping blizzard would not stray to far away from the original concept and they sure as hell did not! So sit back, relax and enjoy! 


And so we begin our jouncy in the last leveling location in Draenor and what an amazing place it is. Home of the Warsong clan band of orcs and a refuge point for ogres we are thrown in to a world of conflict. Home to the orc's spiritual place the land has been torn in half with the tormented spirits of Oshu'gun and the forever looming problem of ogres pouring from Highmaul to the west. We however start off to the east, establishing a foothold within this zone.


Here we get the chance to meet some of the locations we're some what familiar with. The old nagrand back in our timeline still has some resemblance to the nagrand in this timeline. Confusing I know but we do get to see the more remote locations it has to offer. As the rising commander here, I decided to go with the Talbuk station which was a fantastic choice as it enabled me to get around quicker with not much hassle to explore this beautiful place.


During my time here I did find some of the quests a little to sort of.. "hit and miss" I guess is the better way to put it. Only because I was not totally sure were the stories joined. Some just seemed to be placed there purely because they had nothing else to add, or lack of time? Anyway I did end up battling my way through each chapter and was actually surprised by the final cinematic.


The final and yet very dramatic conclusion to this location and story was the battle we have been waiting for. Between Thrall and Garrosh. This time we did not see any bitch fights like we saw in SoO (LET MEH SLAP YOU WID MA DOOMHAMMER) but what actually looked like an incredible way to end the story here. My only gripe would be that the story from war crimes has nothing to do with Garrosh and his almost certain fate and I wish we got to see inside the mind of Thrall a little more! Nonetheless here is the cinematic.

SPOILERS!

 

There you have it folks! The final chapter is complete! I did not want to go to much in to detail in these posts so sorry about that! I have just been rather busy with my Army stuff that I simply have not had as much time as I have liked. Anyway that aside! Thanks for reading and I hope some of the screenshots I have created added to your leveling experiances as it did with me! Until next time! Love.


Warlords Of Draenor: Sinister Spires Of Arak

Hello folks! Vaylen back here again with another look at the next location you will get to venture through Draenor. This location is by far my moist enjoyable. Shocker right? This tends to be peoples least favorite but for me it was the most memorable for a number of reasons. So sit back with your finest brew (mana tea I hope) and enjoy!


So it begins! We enter the the sinister home of the Shattered Hand clan. Lead by the almighty Kargath Bladefist. It is however also home to the untouched and still rather peaceful Arakkoa perched up high above the giant trees and barbaric orcs below. Upon arrival, its hard to ignore the beauty of this place. Darkness and mystery shrouds this location and its hard to ignore the feeling of that tranquility being torn.


Heading down south of Arak and working your way through the chapters you are also able to set up a outpost much like the other zones. Here I decided to set up a brewery.. being monk and all and with the lack of monk lore in this expansion I made it count. By supplying my troops with some good grub and booze on tap, I made it work.


The questing here is fantastic, with a ton of group quests, close bonus objectives and so on, The general flow of the location to me was very smooth. There is a ton of treasures to find and a brilliant quest that involves Terokk, the greatest hero of the Arrakoa. Oh man I wish he was a playable race. 

There we have it folks! another quick write up on my favorite location in Draenor. With just one more to go, this little leveling series will be finished so I hope you enjoyed your leveling here as much as I did! Speak soon! - Vaylen. 



Warlords Of Draenor: Tranquil-ish Talador

Hello folks! Back again with another play through of the expansion! It's been some time now since I quested here on my monk but nonetheless I wanted to share with you guys the experiences I had along the way and some amazing screenshots of my adventures.


From a quick questing location of gorgrond I was rather keen to see what the next location was like. As early as beta and the announcement of this location I was very excited to see what blizzard could produce. From the moment you arrive at your fort I was extremely pleased with the way they executed the starting quests and the beautiful landscape.


From the tranquil locations at the start to the scorched earth towards the south, each place has its own beauty. From saving critters to chasing down the cults of the damage, you will always enjoy each quest chapter. Some of the quests do get a little annoying due to over use of shredders and dealing with other buggy quest objectives. I did really enjoy it however.


I heard of the stories and some spoilers of the ending of the location and I was not let down! The final confrontation of Blackhand with Yrel, Kadgar and Durotan at your side you get to witness and absolutely amazing cinematic which for me made this whole location one of the better questing zones. 

 SPOILERS! Here is the video if you have not yet seen it! 



That's the end of this location! I don't want to go into to much detail in these as I really just want to showcase the screenshots of the location but if you wish to see more of the lore of each place I visit please ask and I will get to work! Stay tuned guys till the next place of interest!
