Screenshots of the month – October 2017


Just a new tradition I started here last months πŸ™‚ A little delayed this month, but hey.

A collection of screenshots that are too precious to delete, but are not being used in any posts. I still want to keep them around, and uploading them helps me categorize and keep it all sorted, so here goes. Mostly for me probably, but hey.


I cannot believe though, that it has been a month already. Time sure flies.


Anyway, he is another batch of screenshots, now shared, categorized and put into the archive!





I finished up questing in Mist of Pandaria…




..And I threw canonballs! (Some quests gimmicks are just too precious not to screenshot.)





I wondered, why they forgot to add the “Kinda Cute” description to this yak…






…And okay, I have no idea, what I am doing or how I managed to do that emote thing in this shot!






But anyway, I took the time to honor Uther…









..And I finally pulled myself together and went to get the Lucid Nightmare. What horrors underneath Karazhan. Never again.





I explored the waters of Pandaria. They sure have a lot of details too…





..And I fooled around on camera with the Pandaren.





And found another one of these!





I did yet another sad quest line…





…And enjoyed the comedy in MoP too.





I helped hubby with questing in Val’Sharah…(That’s right, I got put through all that again)





…While enjoying the scenery again, and this time, notice even more details.









I found a weird note, that I still do not know the meaning behind…





…And I ran into a good friend πŸ™‚





I even went through the loss of Ysera again…





…But at least I got a village named after me?





I did a little on Argus…





…And planted a tree in Molten Core, because, why not?





I laughed at the Pandaren way of “sleep”…





…And swam around. Again. (I realize it’s been far too long since my last swimming adventure though. I wonder which destination should be next)





I tip toed on the ropes of the Timeless Isle…





…And spoke with the Loremasters of Pandaria.





I visited Sunwell at night…







…And found the light in the dark with a dear friend.





I realized I had not yet seen it all…





…And I caught a moment of rejuvenation with another dear friend.





I joined in the celebration of a lovely friend’s goal of obtaining the wonderful Priest Class Mount…





…And I managed to find some joy in Heart of Fear, despite the bugs.





I rode the biggest (It’s so fluffy) mount ever…





…And I thanked the Inky Black Potion for the 100000th time.





I noticed the water drops in the ocean, when it rains…





…And I ran from Garrosh. Casually.





I realized how Mist of Pandaria really has grown on me…





…And I ran the Gnomeregan race!

Due to wintertime and our darling boy getting up at 4, I went to see how the world looked at that hour…(wow?!)






…And I continued to visit Argus from time to time too.





I took the time and honored our fallen King, while listening to Canticle of Sacrifice in game…



…And I speculated in the Nighthold, while hunting for items…







Once more, I appreciated the fun, that Druids bring to the table. Do notice the bucket in the mouth…





…And I enjoyed the scenery in the Druid Class Hall together with a dear friend.





I got my weekly laugh over the cutscene in Throne of Thunder…





…And I felt the absence of Brewfest.





I went to Sunwell again for fun screenshots…





…And I took goood care of all the friends I have, despite how they might look!





I enjoyed the snow inside the Dreamway…(!)





…While the art of Mist of Pandaria continued to amaze me.





So did the art inside Ulduar with the Inky Black Potion…




…It just changed the entire raid completely.





I flew upside down…(Because that’s what I do!)





…And bothered the rude people in Stormheim!






I took my time to enjoy the waterfalls of Draenor…





…And a friend’s suggestion made me check out Frostfire Ridge.





I also did Alterac Valley…(To get a screenshot of how all these spell flash effects should get toned down!)…





…And flexed, because I found my way around Argus all by myself.





I saw a butterfly in one of the most gloomy places…





…And I started on doing a few dailies at Argent Tournament for a Music Scroll.





I also made my way through Undercity, heart beating fast and adrenaline and all, just like old times! Ressurection Sickness did not make it easier to kill guards, hah…





…But I got my music scroll!





I found Pepe. Yarr!





…And discovered how Argus can look during the early morning light, which is something I rarely see in game.





I also spent time being just a happy blob…





…And I went oldschoolin’ it (Well, apart from the flying mount, I still missed the boat!)





I managed to get all the toys from Hallow’s End, one night before it ended…






And I quickly agreed with myself, that it was totally worth it!





That was it πŸ™‚ What a month.

I think someone needs to write a list of what someone wants to accomplish in the game…

Though I do appear to be running around with a sign saying “I might not always know what I am doing, but I sure have fun”. (Thank you wrathofkublakhan for that idea!)

Have a wonderful evening everyone πŸ™‚



PS. Leto over at Edge of Insanity has adopted this “Screenshots of the month” idea, which I think is so cool. πŸ™‚ It’s such a pleasure to read, to get a little idea of how you guys spend your time. Not what we spend our time blogging about, but all the things in between πŸ™‚

I really encourage you to do the same, I’d love to see.

  1. What a great idea (I’m sure Princess of the Mists will want to do this ^^ )

    Amazing screenshots, as always. You should seriously make an imgur account or something for all your images, I can only imagine what amazing screenshots you have and didnt use on your blog πŸ˜ƒ (I thought of imgur because I believe it has a good interaction with wordpress allowing you to store the images there, but I would have to read more on that)

    The image of you walking to Uther’s tomb with the light coming out of there…is hauntingly beautiful.

    1. Thank you for your sweet encouraging words, Lord of Icecrown, that is so considerate of you. And what a coinsidence; you handpicked out the ONE screenshot of the entire bunch, that is my favorite too πŸ˜€

      Some shots happen on the fly and turn out so well. Such a joy to see through the folder later on and learn that. Almost like the old days with old cameras; anticipating the photo shop to develop the film for you and then pick it up and hope for great results.

      I do not know what Imgur is exactly; just briefly looked it over from phone. Some kind of picture society? πŸ˜‰ Oh, but storing them in a decent place would be nice. My screenshot folders are taking up quite the space over time. Thank you for the suggestion πŸ™‚

      1. We should really suggest screenshot contests to Blizzard. Even if there was no prize, or just something like β€œthe winner’s submission will be featured on our newsletter” or something. You would definitely win a lot of those πŸ˜€

        Ah, I remember those cameras. Having to make sure the picture was taken under perfect circumstances, otherwise you would only find out someone had moved/ a light glaring on the lens/ something after the photo shop developed them xD

        Another idea I can give you is making folders on google photo. There is so much space, and you can share the links with anyone you want to see the album. It’s a good option to get a good storage place, and also be able to share some albums πŸ™‚

      2. Oh yes. I think, THINK, there once was a “Screenshot of the Day” on WoWs website, actually, where one could submit a screenshot every day πŸ™‚

        /digs around. Now, now, would you look at that?!

        Apparently it has not been a thing for quite some time, sadly.

        Hah yes, exactly that about the old cameras πŸ™‚

        Oh, yes, that could work too. My WordPress folder is slowly reaching 50% storage space. Thank you πŸ™‚

      3. I believe that imgur has the possibility of integration with wordpress (as in: the images can be on your posts here, but occupying storage there). Maybe look into that too πŸ˜‰

      4. Aw and thank you for the compliment about winning that “contest” if it was a thing! I guess, if I can get just one player to appreciate their surroundings more, I already won, really πŸ™‚

  2. These screenshots are gorgeous, you’ve gotta teach me your tricks! I tend to forget to hit Print Screen until too late, haha

    And regarding the note that says “I am a rose” over and over, there’s a bit of a story to that one (I might do a small post on it). The short version is that’s written in the Night Elf language, so any other race that looks at it just sees gobbly gook repeated over and over. If you can remember where you saw the note, head back to that house and go behind it, slightly up that hill. Make sure to look closely at the scenery, there’s a bit of a… I suppose surprise is the best way to put it. It’s definitely very “Val’sharah”-y!

    1. Heh n’awww thank you so much for saying πŸ™‚ Oh, my tricks. I am not sure I have any specific tricks. Just well, you say you tend to forget to hit Print Screen? I guess the first trick is to remember that πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›

      Oooh, thank you for the subtle tip on that note! I will be sure to go back there. I do remember the exact spot since I took a screenshot of the map location, hah πŸ™‚

      Looking forward to see what awaits. Thank you again πŸ™‚

  3. That’s awesome. Going through them all, it really brought that sense of adventure and discovery that WoW is so good at bringing out. My favorites had to be the Panderan screenshots. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to go through the Pandaria content thoroughly at some point. I’ve only ever blazed through a couple of the first zones quickly and moved on. I’ve hardly done any quests in those two western zones.

    1. Thank you so much, Zeshio πŸ™‚ Yes, I sure got that same feeling when I looked through everything I did.

      Pandaria has grown a little on me, especially the first zones. I hope you will find time to “slow down” as the Pandaren say and enjoy them πŸ™‚

  4. That yak photo, it reminded me of Phoebe “Smelly yak .. smelly yak” πŸ˜€

    Tree in Molten Core “I hear you guys like trees .. here is one” then run away, for fire/rock elementals this is a great insult! or that’s what i imagine!

    Running away from Garrosh, i should try that πŸ™‚

  5. What a wonderful idea. And your screenshots are AMAZING!! I giggled out loud at the happy blob picture- I honestly had never noticed their little faces until just then. Wonderful!!

    The rain drops on the water has long been a favourite of mine. That and footprints in the snow (mine AND my pet’s!)

    Seriously, this is a wonderful post. I might do the same thing for November (and will be sure to credit you for it, too, if you don’t mind!)

    1. Thank you so πŸ™‚ Hah, yes, me too, that blob is so happy, you can’t help but smile, right!

      Aw yeah, footprints in the snow. πŸ™‚

      You are more than welcome to do this too, I’d love it, if more people will, Leto already are on it too, so please, feel free πŸ™‚ Looking forward to see what you spend your month on.

  6. Amazing screenshots. They are so sharp and detailed. What screen resolution do you have?
    The druid in waterfall one is very funny.
    Snow in the Dreamway?? :O
    I should gather some screenies from October and make a post of my own. It is a great idea for a post.

    1. Thanks a bunch, dear πŸ™‚ Oh, not even sure about that, I shall check and get back to you!

      Yes snow in the Dreamway! I do not know how, but I think, THINK, there is a toy that can make it snow for a short period of time πŸ™‚

      Oh I would love to see that, please gather and make your own post πŸ˜€

  7. Warning: my computer stole your screenshots for desktop and screensaver backgrounds.

    Ok, ok, I admit. I got pretty much all of them! Sue me xD The yaks in Pandaria are so darn cute!!!! Did you get the mounts? The Inky Black potion does make pretty much everything better!!!

    I told you, Pandaria is amazing, quests, soundtrack, environment, … it’s perfect and I love it!

    That village with the big fish and the scared Pandaren… the way Pandaren sleep… xD It’s just awesome! Keep making these posts! πŸ˜€ I’ll probably start something like that next month ^^

    1. Amg, I have been robbed! That’s great πŸ™‚

      I know, super cute πŸ™‚ Oh, what, mounts? I don’t know…where, what?

      Yes, Pandaria IS growing on me, I give you that much… πŸ˜‰

      Haha, yes, I laughed out loud when I first discovered the way they sleep.

      I shall try – I look forward to you starting the tradition too πŸ™‚
