Jason sends us this shot of the haunted city of Kirin'var in Netherstorm. Inside this the Violet Tower at the heart of this ghostly town is one of the more amusing quests chains in Outland, given by Archmage Vargoth. And perhaps it's not the quest line itself that's amusing as the quest item that ...

Reader Elvenduil sends us this shot of one of Netherstorm's five manaforges. Though WoWWiki tells us that these structures, likely Naaru in design, are used to harvest mana from the Twisting Nether for the benefit of Keal'thas and his followers, all I can say about them is that they're very visual...

Reader Breakerofwnd of Staghelm sends in this interesting shot taken in Netherstorm. Yes, it's one of the rocks randomly floating around off the edge of the world but, if you look closely... there's a face that bears a striking resemblance to everyone's favorite extra-terrestrial. (No, I'm not tal...

Demliss of Proudmoore sends us this shot of a charming home-away-from-hearth vacation spot off the coast of Netherstorm. There's no pool or concierge service, but you can't beat its view of the lightning-filled Netherstorm skies. (And how long did it take Demliss to get a screenshot with a lightni...

Reader Sinkiller on Thunderhorn sends in this interesting shot taken in the graveyard by Sunfury Hold in Netherstorm. It's a grave, obviously, on which someone has left a bundle of flowers and... a picture of a scantily clad woman. Seems like an odd thing to leave at a grave, to me... Do you have ...

Reader Timbolicious sends in this unique shot from one of the Mana Forges in Netherstorm. From this particular angle, it looks pretty much like the Mana Forge has been squashed flat. (Hey, maybe this picture is part of a papercraft, build-it-yourself-at-home Mana Forge? Cool!) Do you have a unique...

Yup, the festival of flame is appearing in Azeroth starting today through July 5th. There will be bonfires in the cities, new quests to be run, and new rewards to be had (Toasted Smorc is some tasty stuff, and that +44 healing is nice, too). And of course, coming next week around July 4th, the firew...

The only thing I can't figure out is how to keep the change in my pockets. (Bonus cool points to anyone who can place that quote.) Says reader Chleo of Alextrasza, who sent in this interesting image, "I do rock-climbing with only my cold, bony, undead fingers!" (In reality, though, I'm guessing tha...

Reader BenMS sends in this impressive shot showing off one of the eco-domes of Netherstorm. No part of Netherstorm's desolate landscape looks like it would support the type of lush vegetation living in these things. (Is this what we'll find under the similarly shiny Dalaran dome? Hmm!) Do you have...

There's a reason you don't idle in the open on PvP servers. It's because people will kill you. And if you happen to be in a amusing spot, say, floating in the air over Area 52 when you meet your untimely end? People, like reader Goroth of Onyxia, will immortalize your corpse in screenshots. Do yo...

While questing in Azeroth the other day, a guildy and I got into a discussion on The Exodar. He mentioned that it looked to him that it was a ship and that someone should be able to fly it. That led to my geeking out a bit over the lore, and explaining that it was indeed a ship, a nethership, and t...

Aril on The Defias Brotherhood sends in this excellent shot of the Netherstorm sky at sunset. As with all of the skies over Azeroth, the colors and details are gorgeous -- nearly like a painting. I wish I had a higher resolution version of this to share, but this is the best we've got -- wallpaper ...

I think that the goblin statue in Booty Bay is kind of eerie (there's nothing welcoming about a goblin, open arms or no), but this one outside of Area 52 in Netherstorm -- sent in by reader Rolaw of Ursin -- takes creepiness to an entirely new level. Something about that toothy grin is very unsettl...

Reader Poirot of Knights of Arcadia on Dark Iron sends in this incredible shot of one of the mana forges in Netherstorm from above. And if you think this mana forge is massive? Poirot notes that it's dwarfed by Tempest Keep, whose full height can't even be rendered by his machine. Do you have a uni...

Seen this wizard (or these wizards) around lately? It's Archmage Vargoth. Actually, it's an image of Archmage Vargoth-- the guy himself is locked, by Kael'thas, inside the Violet Tower up in Netherstorm. The image is summoned with a staff obtained from a long quest chain that starts in Area 52. At ...
