Virtual Snapshots: Home Sweet Azeroth

I admit - when I first installed World of Warcraft I ran around Azeroth like some virtual tourist, marveling at every bit of scenery and taking copious numbers of screenshots. However, the longer I've played, the more I've grown accustomed to the world of Azeroth and its interesting sights. That is, perhaps, why it was so refreshing to me to see this blog post - reminding me of the way I saw the game back when I first bought it (and proving I'm not the only one to, from time to time, be somewhat dazzled by the world around me).

Indeed, shots such as this make Alterac Valley appear deceptively peaceful. And now, if you'll excuse me, I feel the need to log on and take some snapshots...

Breakfast Topic: Hidden gems

From an out-of-the-way inn my guild uses for meetings, to the time I finally managed to watch a race in the Shimmering Flats, Azeroth has many well-kept secrets. How many times have you stumbled across a location or piece of scenery and wondered what on earth it was there for? Aside from the game's easter eggs, which are fun to track down, some places seem to hold unfulfilled potential.

I've found that RP gives me a whole new outlook on these places; every one suddenly suggests several possible storylines, although I've acquired the habit of dismissing a lot of the empty-looking content by saying "oh, that's only for RPers". Do you think this is true? Are the deserted buildings and empty locations there for RP enjoyment alone, or to lighten the hearts of the players who love running around into every nook and cranny? Have you found a particular spot that surprised or delighted you?
