The Field Photographer Achievement Part1

What a fine day yesterday was… I really should have been outdoors (for realz). But nope instead I’m working on the Field Photographer achievement finally.

Field_Photographer_Moonglade

Assuming it’ll be optimized, we’re using Zygor’s Guide for our traveling route. It starts off in Moonglade, easy for me since I went on my druid but just a lil’bit of a ride for Barla since she went on her mage, haha.

Field_Photographer_Nordrasil

Now we’re off to Nordrasil in Hyjal (the zone not the raid).

Here we detoured back to Winterspring to pick up the Music Scroll: Music Roll: Mountains. And since we were near-by we took another detour over to Darnassus to pick up Music Roll: Shalandis Isle and Ashenvale for the Music Roll: Magic.

Field_Photographer_Echo_Isles

Now the route takes a slight turn and head towards the troll zone Echo Isles in the southeast corner of Durator. You may want to take a flight over to Ratchett and then use your flying mount to get over to the Isles. Be careful where you stand or you might find yourself dead .. right Barla ..

Field_Photographer_Onyxias_Lair

From there, we took a mage port to Theramore Isle and back tracked to Onyxia’s Lair. Pfffft no mount, sorry Barla.

Field_Photographer_The_Shapers_Terrace

Now don’t make our mistake and port to Northrend haha. Just head on over to Ungoro Crater to the The Shapers Terrace found in the eastern part of the zone in the mountains.

Field_Photographer_Caverns_of_Time

From there we took off too Dalaran and once there we went thru the portal to The Caverns of Time. I LuV this place .. I remember sneaking in thru a crack before it was even populated with NPCs and having a look around… shhhh don’t tell the GMs.

Field_Photographer_Halls_of_Origination

It was quicker to take a flight towards our next destination; The Halls of Origination found in southern Uldum. We didn’t need to actually enter the dungeon to take the screenshot but umm some people did anyway haha.

Field_Photographer_Scarab Dais

Another flight to Silithus where we turned and flew south the see the Scarab Dais down by AQ20/40. If you we’re around in vanilla you may well remember the ringing of the gong to signify the gates opening.

Field_Photographer_The_Twin_Colossal2

Next was The Twin Colossal in Feralas. I haven’t gone to see these twin giants in quite some time. It brings back fond memories of days long gone when we used to party atop the Colossal – swimming and mucking about.

Field_Photographer_The_Twin_Colossal

Once upon a time the only way up to the top of this mountain was by talking to a NPC at the bottom. And if you talk to the NPC at the top he gives you a parachute for your jump down. I’ve always been reminded of Devils Tower when here.

To be continued …

Hidden among the clouds above Uldum lies the dungeon The Vortex Pinnacle and the raid Throne of Four Winds floats near by as well. Uldum isn’t one of my favorite questing zones and it is THE most AWEsomely designed zone IMO.

Who didn’t like the Egyptian theme?

#50shadesofwarcraft Day Eight: White

Posting day 8 of the #50shadesofwarcraft bloggers challenge. Are you up to the challenge?

Today I’m going with someone rather than somewhere …

#50shadesofwarcraft

Magni Bronzebeard, who btw is rocking that diamond look, can be found in old Ironforge.

The Explorer’s League found a set of tables with an Inscription for an ancient ritual, possibly of Titanic origin, that promised to make the speaker “one with the earth.” When the Cataclysm started, the Earth Elements around Ironforge were especially unruly. Magni, in desperation, decided to perform the ritual in hopes of communicating with them and calming them. Unfortunately, the ritual was very literal, and he turned into earth instead – specifically, into a solid formation of diamond.

Some places you might want to explore for white might include; Ironforge, Dun Morogh  comes to mind immediately but there’s also Winterspring and a small snow covered area in Hillsbrad Foothills. Oh and let’s not forget the newest snow covered zone, Frostfire Ridge.
