Where in Warcraft: The difficult balance edition

Where in Warcraft The difficult balance edition!
It is a difficult balance, you know, writing a guessing game like this. It's a bit like the difficult balance facing developers of computer games. You don't want to make a challenge so utterly impossible that the majority of people feel excluded, but neither do you want to make it so easy that everyone guesses it within a few seconds! But who am I kidding -- I'm not Blizzard!

I am, however, impressed with your speed and accuracy in guessing the last Where in Warcraft installment. DavidSikes, almost to my annoyance, had it within moments of posting! Good job, DavidSikes. You win a cave near Ahn'Qiraj and the respect of the girl who writes this feature. (The last one is a rather dubious reward, let me tell you.)

Anyhow, as the Foo Fighters sang in All My Life, on, on, on to the next one. The above screenshot was kindly submitted by Trakand of The Maelstrom (EU). Thanks very much, Trakand. And before you yell "faction bias," this scene is out in the world for anyone to find. And that's all I'm saying about it. Or it'll be guessed in all of three seconds again.

So you know the rules: I have to be able to find my way to this location with your instructions. I'm also adding a new rule to avoid situations like we had a while ago: Your guess has to be in a new post, not a reply to another post. Otherwise, it's impossible for me to know who guessed first! That leads to unfair decisions, and nobody likes those.

In other news, in England, Where's Waldo? is called Where's Wally?

There's so much in Azeroth (and Outland!) just waiting to be found. Tip us off. If you've found a fabulously quirky landmark, hidden treasure, or special hideaway somewhere in Warcraft, drop me a line at olivia@wowinsider.com with your screenshot. You could be featured in a future edition of Where in Warcraft!

Where in Warcraft: The Too Easy edition

Where in Warcraft The 'too easy!' edition ANY
"Too easy!" is a strange saying that crops up in parts of Australia as a response to "thanks for your help" -- too easy, they say, to point out how minimal a disturbance to their lives that effort was. It's a strange response.

Last week's image was clearly far too easy! Or was it? Most of you correctly identified that it was in Terokkar -- but people, guessing an entire zone is no good. You need to be way more specific than that. Those who said it was part of the druid flight form quest were spot on, well done! But if you reckoned it was in the Skettis area, that was a swing and a miss -- sorry.

The earliest correct commenter was Silversol1209, who correctly identified it as the shrine of the eagle adjacent to Lake Jorune, near Stonebreaker Hold. Congratulations, Silversol1209! I tip my hat (with an eagle that looks like an owl on it) to you.

This week's edition comes to us courtesy of Niunsul of Ravenholdt (US), who emailed me this great spot. I don't know what got this poor guy in the end, but I'm comforted that he had his book, his wine, and an amazing view at his final resting place. But the question is, where is it? Guessing a whole zone is not good enough; I have to be able to guide myself to this exact spot with your response. If nobody has got it 24 hours after the post is published, I'll be in the comments with a clue, so keep your eyes open!

Get out there, and get hunting! It's somewhere in Warcraft -- but where?

There's so much in Azeroth (and Outland!) just waiting to be found. Tip us off.
