Ubarjabula, a Troll Shadow Priest on the Uther server took advantage of his Merciless Gladiator's Satin Hood, Shadowform's effects on a mount and the shaft of light courtesy of Shattrath's Naru. Together they make for quite a chilling effect. Death from above never looked so imminent. Do you have ...

Many of us that have played the game every day over the years have developed some habits of sort. One of the habits that I've found myself doing night after night is logging off in the same spot. For me, this spot is at the staff vendor in the Aldor section of Shattrath. I find myself logging off he...

The second phase of quest and NPC progression on the Isle of Quel'danas began a couple days ago on the US PvE PTR. Yesterday I covered the retaking of Sun's Reach Sanctum and the second phase is all about the building just across the road, the Sun's Reach Armory. The Armory is infested with demons, ...

I've noticed lately while running around and doing my daily cooking quest that some flames are not the same as others. This seems rather silly to me. After all, a flame is a flame, right? For those of you that don't cook in WoW, I'll fill you in. You need to find a cooking fire every time you want t...

Thargor has done something pretty crazy, and he's throwing a party to celebrate. But unlike a few other players who've thrown big parties for a ding, he's doing something a little bigger than that. Instead of celebrating just one ding, he's going to celebrate not three, not six, but dinging nine lev...

Reader Tracer of Earthen Ring (EU) sends along this perfectly ordinary, nothing to say shot of Shattrath City. So why bother posting it here? Well, instead of catching any of the typical Shattrath scenes, Tracer seems to catch the city at an angle and time of day that it simply sparkles in the sun...

MMO Champion has reported that new "Specialty Ammunition Vendors" have been discovered on the PTR in patch 2.3. These vendors, Archer Delvinar and Marksman Bova, can be found in once empty structures in the Scryer and Aldor areas, respectively, in Shattrath City. Not only do they sell the best types...

Reader Ashendra of Glory of War on Lightning's Blade sends us this shot with the curious question: have you ever noticed that security is a bit minimal in the Aldor bank in Shattrath City? As a frequenter of the Scryer bank I have to say I'm much more confident in my banking choice after seeing th...

What can I say? I happen to think those paladin wings (aka Avenging Wrath) are one of the coolest graphical effects in the game. And this shot, by reader Kevan shows off the Paladin's winged appearance to the great backdrop of Shattrath City. Do you have a unique shot of Azeroth or Outland that yo...

Reader Liskad of Perenolde sends us a shot of this perch high above Shattrath City. I must say, there's something about having a flying mount that drives people to explore all the high places in Outland, even if only to find the perfect place to stop and idle. Do you have a unique shot of Azeroth...

Sorun is a rogue who loves his Horde-Alliance conflict. As he posted on the forums, he feels that every action and little quest in the World of Warcraft should reflect the reality of War that exists in that world, not the good old intra-faction get-together that Shattrath has turned out to be. If Da...

Malygos is a new kind of antagonist for the Warcraft universe in that he's probably the enemy with the least actual evil we've seen so far, in sharp contrast to the Burning Legion, the Scourge, the Old Gods, and a host of others. As we've already noted, some players think he may actually be right: h...

Some of you longtime readers may remember a while back when we posted video of A'dal (the big floaty Naaru in Shattrath's center) getting the crap beat out of him. In fact, that was the post where I coined the Lord British Postulate, which stated that if anything existed as a live creature in an M...

When everyone gets their first flying mount, I'm fairly sure that the first thing they do is hop over to Shattrath City to investigate the beam of light soaring above the city center. While I do not know if this was precisely the case with reader Numarza of Mannoroth who sent us this shot, so I'll...

In a word, no. Blizzard blue Nethaera posted in response to the umpteenth request for an Auction House in Shattrath. At least this time we got an explanation behind the decision. Blizzard feels an AH in Shattrath will eliminate the only reason for players to interact with others in older cities. Th...

Drysc announced earlier today that starting at midnight server time, Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain is performing at the new Darkmoon Faire location outside of Shattrath City. Don't be afraid if you've missed your server's performance time, because they will be performing at the top of every hour ...

Lyrsuk of Lothar gives us a glance of the event you get to participate in if you ever reach exalted status with the Netherwing: a dragon ride! Sadly, this dragon makes the cool mount you're about to get look awfully puny... My question is what faction standing do we have to get before we can get t...

Reader Royal of Furious Napkins on Darrowmere was hanging around Shattrath city when he heard that someone was killing off the Aldor in their bank. Going to investigate, Royal found the scene pictured above. Apparently the killer was somewhat obsessive-compulsive... Do you have a unique shot of Az...

Arrianae has a great point over on the forums: since when did Outland take the war out of Warcraft? Remember all that blood spilled on the Crossroads? Remember the massacres that took place at Southshore, or the daily incursions at Orgrimmar and Stormwind. STV ganking is legendary, and BRD used to h...

Anyone who has spent any time tradeskilling in Shattrath has probably run across the Troll merchant, Griftah. Since Burning Crusade came out, Griftah has called a spot near the mana loom in Lower City his home. He has hawked many fun and dubious items like [Soap on a Rope] and [Infallible Tikbalan...
