The Queue: Frozen waterfalls are cool

Image
Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky (@adamholisky) will be your host today.

My wife's cousin went behind a waterfall in Minneapolis a couple days ago. Only this waterfall is frozen, and looks like something out of Icecrown.

An actual frozen waterfall. There were no frozen thrones, but he did invite me to go and see said frozen waterfall with him, and I might just do that -- if only so I could say at parties that I walked on a waterfall. Check out his pictures, they're just nuts.

Also Alex, just sayin', Minneapolis > San Francisco.

James asked:

Looking at the theoretical differences between our heroes and the lore characters, one has to wonder what makes them so much more powerful. Now, obviously someone like Illidan or Malfurion is explainable with the old idiom "it's magic", but what about, say...Varian? Or Garrosh? They are both mortal, aye? Prick them, do they not bleed? Tickle them, do they not laugh? Pop Divine Shield and will they not just laugh and kick you in the wee bouncies? Overall, what makes them so much MORE than us, and not just in terms of game-play.

Around Azeroth: Zangarmarsh showers


Player Cosmokramer of the Vanquish guild on Kul Tiras realm was slogging through the fens of Zangarmarsh when he spied this waterfall. Being a gnome, he knew it he had to take his opportunities to bathe where he could get them.

Do you have any unusual World of Warcraft images that are just collecting dust in your screenshots folder? Because we'd love to see it on Around Azeroth! Sharing your screenshot is as simple as e-mailing aroundazeroth@wow.com with a copy of your shot and a brief explanation of the scene. You could be featured here next!

Remember to include your player name, server and/or guild if you want it mentioned. We prefer full screen shots without the UI showing. And please, no more sunsets. This means you. I'm not kidding, yours is not the exception. No, really. Sigh.

Around Azeroth: Splash!


Reader Michael sends in this shot taken in the lush landscape of Feralas. And though you may be inclined tot take this for just another waterfall, Michael points out an interesting detail: the water splashes off the rocks as it falls. Is this a recent addition, or just something we've never bothered to pay attention to before? Either way, lovely! (Also available in wallpaper size.)

Around Azeroth: The Nagrand Falls


In what is becoming a continuing series of waterfall-related posts, I bring you The Nagrand Falls, just outside Shattrath City, courtesy of Dibbs on Shadowsong (EU). And regardless of where the water may or may not be coming from, it's a lovely shot of some of the amazing scenery to be found in Outland.

Around Azeroth: But where does the water come from? (Revisited)


You may recall recently seeing an Around Azeroth post featuring a screenshot of one of the many floating islands in Nagrand (and Outland in general), this one with a waterfall falling gracefully over the sides. I wondered, at the time, where the water was coming from to create this never-ending waterfall. Today, reader Fanny of Twisting Nether sends in a shot taken from Stranglethorn Vale, near Booty Bay, showing where water within Azeroth comes from -- out of thin air! I've got to say this explains everything... if Azerothian waterfalls can come from nowhere, why should Outland waterfalls be any different?

Around Azeroth: But where does the water come from?


Around Azeroth has looked at plenty of waterfalls before. And why not? They tend to be scenic views wherever in the World of Warcraft they come from. However, the waterfall we're looking at today is a bit different from any we've looked at before -- because unlike the ordinary waterfalls of Azeroth, this one has no apparent source of water. After all, a stream can hardly flow to an island floating in mid-air, can it? So where's that water coming from? Reader Boterham of Drek'Thar (EU), who sent us this shot, wonders too. Anyone in the audience care to take a stab at guessing how the Outland ecosystem works?

Around Azeroth: Waterfall in the Wetlands


Reader Robert sends in this shot of an impressive waterfall flowing into the Wetlands. When taking a gryphon towards the Wetlands, you'll often get a good shot of this one, and the Stonewrought Dam (an impressive site that cannot properly be seen from land) above it, while flying overhead. I may be mistaken, but I want to say this is the largest waterfall in Azeroth -- though you're welcome to contradict me if I'm forgetting one!
