I clicked one of the wow wiki links in this article and ended up spending about the last 2 hours opening up different tabs and branching out into the lore of Warcraft. I came across one very interesting article involving ley lines that ran across the world of azeroth.These ley lines form complex patterns in certain areas of the world that are known as runes. The patterns that are created there have certain effects. For instance hot springs in mulgore supposedly form a pattern that doubles healing effects. There is one formed in the canyons of the badlands for speed, the wiki reads that creatures moving quick in this area have their speed increased. Others increase casting power, resistances, shielding, etc... Do these runic patterns found in nature actually increase the said abilities while your in the area? I've run around these areas in the game but I don't remember any buffs that occurred when entering them. I am guessing that some of these runes will be used by death knights in the up and coming expansion though.Another question relating to the ley lines has to do with a class known as a ley walker. This seems to be a casting class that has evolved from mages, runemasters, inscribers, druids, shamans, and priest of elune. A ley walker is able to harness the threads that connect all ley lines across the world augmenting spells with additional power using natural energy. It seems to me to be a viable hero class that could gain certain abilities, buffs, and power increases based on location. Any information on this class and its viability in World of Warcraft?
