No. Art is about the same as MM&M which is disappointing. Though the ratio of quality to ultra-cartoony crap was a lot higher (meaning more quality stuff). But nothing from Samwise or any of them.

Questions from the Northrend map.

Thor Modan - Has Muradin's expedition survived long enough to create a new mountain kingdom, or are there awakened Dwarves in Northrend?

The Nexus - Sounds very Dark Portal-ish. A place where ley energies of Northrend have combined, or something else?

Zul'Drak - Frost Troll remnants (After the Scourge took over most of the continent)?

The Great Tree - Related to Nordrassil maybe (sibling seedling or parent to the great World Tree.)?

Comments

Ulduar - Good to finally see an exact location of the Titans ancient city.

The Dragonblight - Much larger than I'd anticipated, which fuels the question, truly how many Bonewyrms can Arthas raise for the Scourge?

Whoa, Goblins came from Undermine? damn, I always wondered where those mischeivious little buggers came from. I bet their city is made of solid gold :D

The Great Tree - Related to Nordrassil maybe (sibling seedling or parent to the great World Tree.)?Technically this would have been hard since Nordrassil (and Teldrassil since it was intended for the same process) was grown using Druidic magic, and wouldn't have been that large without. So unless this Great Tree was crated via Druidism (maybe the Tuskarr?), I doubt it has anything to do with Nordrassil or Teldrassil.

And what´s this Nexus region?

The Great Tree is another portal to the Emerald Dream like those in Duskwood, Ashenvale, Feralas, and Hinterlands.

I was inclined to that, they seem to be in every major continent.

Warlock told me the Nexus was Malygos' place.

Warlock told me the Nexus was Malygos' place.

It does make sense, Malygos being the aspect of magic. It's also separated from the mainland, so I'm sure it's much harder for the Scourge to access.

Cool, i was wondering where he was, thanks Ken.

Hey Warlock, when you update your impressions could you include Theramore´s description specifically, it´s probably the zone i´m more curious, i wonder how Brann describes it.
Also, any good information about the High elves situation in Kalimdor?


Thanks much.
