You do know that community made (more or less functional) software exists to run your own WoW server, right? Such software has been made for many of the major MMORPGs, they are commonly known as "server emulators". It would be fairly trivial to setup such a server, invite your friends over, stage any kind of strange situations and take screenshots.
For this reason I always find it amusing to see someone wondering if a screenshot of WoW has been photoshopped or not. The truth is, Photoshop is not needed. There's no way you can tell if the screenshot has been taken while on official server or while on your own private server.
I'm not saying that this picture is a fake, but just by looking for clues of photoshopping is not enough to determine whether it is one or not.
