PostSubject: The Battle of Mt Hyjal   Wed 30 Apr 2008, 12:35

Just thought I'd share some screen shots of an utterly fantastic instance with you guys. There's no combat shots as it was my first night there and I had to concentrate.

As someone in the SQ channel said, all the CoT instances are fun Very Happy

In MH you start at the Alliance Camp with Jainia (Spelling please!) and a load of Alliance folks, once the even starts the trash comes in timed waves, each wave progressively getting harder and harder. There's little time to drink inbetween the waves and practically no time before the boss comes.

Once you complete all the 'missions' at the Alliance camp, you progress into the Horde camp where you fight along with Thrall. After that you head to the Night Elf camp where you face Archimode himself!



Saddly Rage Winterchill (the first boss) only looks like a black football when he dies.

We downed him with half our healers and DPS dead (I LIVED!) xD





Here's a few shots of me running around and exploring:






Look it's Thrall!







I hope I don't annoy anyone by showing this, I'm not trying to show 'phat skills' or tease people who aren't seeing this content.

It's just it's such a beautiful instance I thought I'd share.

I'll spend some time taking some prettier ones next time!

Aww, sometimes I really wish I had the gear for Mount Hyjal... it looks awesome. All CoT instances are made of win (yes, I said that \o/)

For anyone who wants to see Rage Winterchill, you can always download WoW model viewer. Or play Warcraft 3. Or both. Good ol' memories of me cheating trough the game just for the storyline (without sound that time T_T) and one shotting Rage with Tyrande (I think).

There's nothing to stop you forming a raid group with a few people and going in there to explore. The only place there's mobs is in the Scourge camp, but you can see them a mile off so you won't pull.

I believe Blizz removed the attunments because they want people to see the content ^_^

If I were a games designer, I'd be really sad if only a fraction of the players saw all of the game.

I've always wondered what the old world instances are like. Things like BWL and Naxx.

I -adore- the CoT instances. They're clever, well planned and makes you part of the storyline.

Oh and Andro... I cheated through Warcraft aswell for the storyline Very Happy

You know... if Blizz makes a CoT version of DotA, I will build a temple.

Hey, I thought you were pissed off at Blizz for doing that? Changed your mind? =P

There was initial frustration and I felt for the people that had spent so much time and effort getting attuned, but yeah, I've started to change my mind.

I heard when TBC came out there was a huge ammount of frustration because very few people got to see Naxx and it was one of Blizzs' regrets. I've assumed they don't want to make the same mistake with MH, BT and Sunwell.

The only attunment I think they should have kept was Kara.

Yeah, seeing as the Kara attunement was a matter of doing 3.5 normal dungeons... It wasn't hard, just a way of checking if you're actually capable of functioning in a group.

Not that it was very successful in that way, mind you. There are some real muppets out there raiding...

Attunements for places like SSC, MH and BT were removed to allow people to see more game content, I think they did that to Kara for the same reason.

I still think it was silly to remove the Kara attunment, it's a gear check and makes sure that you've functioned in a team before you start raiding.
