During my Orca Tour, I made several attempts to swim from one place to another. Where I´m well aware of the fact, that it´s rarely, if at all ever, possible, I just want to try anyway. So let´s!
Swimming from Vashj’ir to Tol Barad did surprise me though. Mostly in terms of how far I managed to get.
These days I´m able to swim quite far, until I run out of mana and no longer am able to heal myself.
But as you can see here, despite how far I was able to get, the landscape simply just stopped existing, more or less! I never experienced that before.
Here Vashj’ir stopped existing, and then this took over.
What weird is, that I was able to get this far. I mean, normally I´m being stopped by an invisible wall, and then that´s it. But here I managed to swim all up to Tol Barad (Or where it is shown on the map, of course)
Aaand then I ran out of mana.
I had no buffs or flasks on for this swimming attempt as it was not really planned ahead.
I spawned in Westfall afterwards! Needless to say, I had to ressurceted at the graveyard.
See, if you run back to your corpse in the water, even as a wisp, you start getting fatigued and die. Thats means you die, even though you are dead. Yes, that´s right!
What that means is, that you are not able to get to your corpse really, if you have made it as far as I have, since you cannot heal, when you are dead…So it would be a never ending battle to reach your corpse. So odd! (It took me a few attempts to really grasp what was happening, the first time it occured :P)
But fun anyway 🙂 Even though it´s another swimming adventure not resulting in discovering new land…*Sniffles*. Well in one way I did discover new land, I suppose!
