Aaah, Blackwing Lair…
In the dark recesses of the mountain’s peak, Nefarian, the eldest son of Deathwing, conducts some of his most awful experimentation, controlling mighty beings like puppets and combining the eggs of different dragonflights with horrific results. Should he prove successful, even darker pursuits rest on the horizon.
And, yet, the Lord of Blackrock is not a mere scientist – he is a great dragon cornered in his lair. Can he truly be defeated by mortal hands?
Home to some of my most treasured raid-memories from Vanilla. Including the most embarrasing misspull during the – encounter. Veterans would know, that when you wiped back then, you had to wait 15 minutes to try again. And Veterans would also know, that – after the first time you engage it – is hostile the second time. So no running across the battlefield after being ressurected, while your group is preparing! 😉
I never fought Nefarian in the dark. It was beyond awesome. The atmosphere of Burning Steppes is somewhat foggy so changing that into a clear, crips night was amazing.
The Burning Steppes hold the only accessible land passage from the Kingdom of Stormwind to Khaz Modan and Lordaeron. The highway is thus well traveled, but still very dangerous. Now virtually abandoned by the Kingdom of Stormwind, the Burning Steppes is controlled by minions of the black dragonflight and agents of the firelord Ragnaros.
I mean, look at this…!
Sadly the class call for Druids did not work. Darn. I always liked those a lot!
But I discovered that the class call for Demon Hunters actually make them go blind, so they can´t see anything but their action bar!
Did you ever really notice the size of Nefarian? Look at his claws alone. We were quite brave back then!
Here we almost became friends, as you can see! *High five-claw*!
Put to rest, once more.
Dreadful sight though!
The Inky Black Potion makes me rediscover so many places in WoW that I´m very familiar with already. The Dungeons that are “outside” are turned into something with much more atmosphere. I think a place such as Zul’Farak will be too.
Onwards to the next adventure! 🙂
