Around Azeroth: Looking up at Northshire Abbey


Reader Ginevra of Skullcrusher sends in this shot that I imagine most of our audience will recognize as Northshire Abbey, the starting point for many an adventuring human. Just think it's a boring old building? Well, let me be the first to point out that, while Blizzard frequently reuses architecture throughout the game, this abbey is completely unique. (To be fair, most of the starting areas have unique architecture.) And Ginevra points out a resemblance to Van Gogh's The Church at Auvers. No, it's not a precise duplicate, but the colors and and angles have some similarities.

Do you have a unique shot of Azeroth or Outland that you'd like to show off to the rest of the world? Tell us about it by e-mailing! Or perhaps you'd just like to see more of your pics from Around Azeroth.
