World of Warcraft takes you on a tour of Spires of Arak's art

The art team at Blizzard is proud to present and pontificate on the creation behind one of Warlords of Draenor's new zones: Spires of Arak.

"When we started working on Spires of Arak, we only had some basic ideas: tall rocky spires jutting out of a dense forest," Senior Art Director Chris Robinson said in today's dev blog. Spires of Arak is what later on becomes World of Warcraft's Terokkar Forest, but the team had to create its own individual look which included working on "large spiky rocks."

The art team detailed the journey that went into choosing the style and making it happen and included a video of this creation process that you can watch after the jump.
