Where in Warcraft: Getting the picture

Where in Warcraft the getting the picture edition
Well, I think things went marginally better last week. One commenter made a great point that all it takes is for one person to know where these locations are, and that tears it for all the readers. I am quietly encouraged that it's not purely that I am such a dreadful WoW explorer that I can't come up with any decent locations!

Last week, we had a pixellated version of the crypt uphill of the Dustwind Dig Alliance flight point in the Badlands. Credit goes to wowpiper for giving directions which made it easy to find -- although yet again, despite my amazing picture editing skills, the first responder knew where it was. Alas, "the crypt in the Badlands" was not detailed enough for me to find it by your directions -- and you know the rules!

This week's picture is one of my own, slightly doctored. It has been in my screenshots folder for a long old time; I'm not sure exactly when I took it, but I found it while looking for something else on a machine I haven't used for WoW for about nine months. I found it while out and about, and I was struck by how pretty it is and how I'd actually like it on my wall at home.

My fear with this one is that the same picture is found in many locations, but I'm only going to accept the one where I actually found it. I will police the comments as closely as possible so I can tell you if the location you've suggested is wrong.

I have to be able to find my way to the location via your description. Coordinates are good, as are detailed directions. As ever, your guesses have to be in a new comment to be counted, not in a reply (or it's impossible for me to tell which came first). Good luck -- not that you'll need it!

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 with your screenshot. You could be featured in a future edition of Where in Warcraft!

Archmage Vargoth's travels documented in blog form

As I've said a few times on the site before, I love seeing Archmage Vargoth in the weirdest of places. Wherever players can go, I love seeing that little purple guy show up, too. And so reader Horns has made my day-- he's started a blog completely dedicated to seeing Archmage Vargoth all over Azeroth. Vargoth in the Undercity, Vargoth in Feralas, Vargoth in that little cave above WC, and Vargoth under the hammer of Rag in MC.

Awesome. And Horns needs your help-- if you've got a pic of Vargoth in a funny or interesting place (or even a boring place-- would be awesome to see a hundred Vargoths standing in Ironforge's AH), get it to Horns and he'll post it for you. I'd really like to see Vargoth in places that he shouldn't go-- since he actually summons a little bit off center of the player, it should be possible to stick him in place players can't go, shouldn't it? Like on the roofs of buildings in Stormwind? I'll try messing around with it when I get a chance, but if you guys pull it off, send the pic to Horns.
