On top of the shots in the interactive map, Blizzard has released an additional <A HREF="http://worldofwarcraft.com/burningcrusade/screenshots.html">four more screenshots</a>. Go check em out.

He said the forth one, so I think he means the Outland Doomguard.

Some things I noticed about the map is the huge amount of faction cities. Some of the zones have two of each and a bunch of neutral or faction locations.

I am very curious why the Night Elves have a temple on the Hellfire Pennisula.

One of the Alliance towns is called Sylvannar, and another called Allerian Stronghold. I can understand the Allerian Stronghold named after Alleria, but Sylvannar?

Look like the Cenarion Circle took interest in Outland, since they have a neutral town in Zangarmarsh.

I love how Blizzard is playing off the fact everyone is saying the expansion is adding to many Sci-fi elements when they name one of the neutral towns in the Netherstorm, Area 52.

Oh right, I knew which one he meant but because Blizzard likes to put them at such shitty resolution (seriously, why always the 800x500?) and because I didn't look that close, I thought it was a player :P

Anyways, I think the other two on Hellfire are super small. Think the difference between Splintertree Post and Zoram'gar in Ashenvale. They are probably just little quest hubs and not full honest-to-god towns.

However, I *think* Hellfire Citadel has a wall extending all the way across. It's possible those little hubs have flight paths to quickly fly over it (or else you get yourself a flying mount - or maybe you'll be required to finish the dungeon... or maybe it's like BR Mountain with the little pathway).

As for Sylvanaar, I don't know. It might just be a coincidence because IIRC it's a NE town. One thought I did have though (which is kind of dismissed by the NE town aspect) is that maybe it was created by Vereesa (who's still not freaking in the game) and named for her fallen sister.

Where exactly would you place her and Rhonin's house anyways...

If Dalaran fits under that globe I'll die laughing. Must be such a miniature to fit in that shield that the mages wouldn't fit in through the doorways.

It's gonna be funnier when we get Achimonde and Kil'jaeden sized enemies, both of them were tiny compared to the city and the dome at this time is smaller then some Onyxia.

Oh come on, Area 52 is a direcxt example of how Blizzard likes to poke fun at things. They have been doing it in every single one of their games, I don't know why people have a problem with it out. Netherstorm will probably have sci-fi elements, but so what; one zone out of many, I'll get over it :P

You guys have just run out of stuff to complain about so your leaping at everything now :P

Assasins Blade.

That thing goes for up to a 100 gold on my server. Meh, it aint that great. Picked it up from LBRS (pretending I needed it), and I must say, it served me worse than my Ice Barbed Spear.

I wonder why Blizzard is walking the path of Anime now. Making Chinese Farmers giggle with glee.

Actually is Japanesse and Korean, not Japanesse and Chinesse for manga.


And since the Chinese simp and Japanese Kanji are so similar to those who don't know them it can be difficlt for people to detirmine which is which.
