A journey through Tiragarde Sound

Well, I am not half way through it yet, but the screenshots are piling up, and picking just 5 for Z and Cinder’s Blog Challenge sure is difficult – and it runs until tomorrow, so I best tackle this now!

“First impressions count and a new expansion brings a host of new zones to explore and new NPCs to meet. Come and share your first impressions or favourite locations you find over the first fortnight of playing by showing us your favourite 5 (or more if you can’t choose) screenshots.”


Okay. 5 screenshots. Five.

Let’s see now…



These quests were hilarious. I love all the new looks of NPCs, how they can lean, carry things and what not. And +Flynn drunk, hah.



This made me laugh out loud. Why is he sitting on such a small chair? I could hardly see him when I entered the room, lol.






This guy obviously hates his job. That finger drumming on the table and lost look in his eyes. It’s the postal office.



Too Cute. Must be in the post.


That’s 5 already? Okay, I can’t do it, I tried, but no, it’s too hard, sorry!




Funny reference to Lord of the Rings πŸ™‚ (Right?)



This I really like. A soaking wet bear seeking shelter in a cave, while it rains.



Too. Funny. πŸ˜€



I cherish all these things that puts a smile on my face.



The water calls…(Not the most exciting underwater scenery yet, but perhaps later on)



Who here adores all the cut scenes?



I took this screenshot, because at this exact location, the music JainaΒ΄s Homeland is playing. I love that piece.



I just finished watching the movies The Shallows and 47 Meters Down- so this scared me!



Such a great update to the horse model. I brought out my old Pinto for comparison. I wonder if they will get updated as well?



More cutscenes. Much love for those. Look, there’s me!



So good lookin’! I want to be able to have our characters pose like that. The models are in the game now. So why can’t we?



Spooooky underwater rare mob.



These boat rides. I love those. They make me slow down. If they added that calming sound of the ocean, it would be perfect.



That view from that mountain I had to climb.



When can I have this pet?



I like all the added dialogue options with NPCs. Even when I bore them, apparently!



How awesome to see a witch like that in WoW!



One of my favorite parts of Battle for Azeroth is helping those you pass by. Those side quests. It makes me feel as if I am back in Duskwood, just a traveller passing by, instead of the all mighty ArchDruid that everyone needs.



Merciful Elune, please bless the fallen.



I had to cut this quite small, but it’s the bear and dog crew together. Too important to miss.



I adore horses. And the new model in WoW is gorgeous, I think.



A mage buffed me!



That new dance looks so great too. When can I do that!?



Size does not matter.



Helping this guy overcome his fear of riding? Top 10 quest material πŸ™‚



Underwater breathing buff on an Orca…



A dear friend gave me this. A mount I didn’t know existed, to keep me company until we meet again. Sweet, adorable and cherished gift β™₯




One of my best action shots yet! Jumping Bear vs. Parrot? (The space bar is the first one to go on my keyboard)



I saved this one.

My favorite screenshot


This. I love how this turned out.



What a journey. Half way through Tiragarde Sound and halfway though level 112. So much to look forward to in Kul Tiras.





Wishing you all a fantastic weekend ahead!

Do you have a favorite screenshot so far? πŸ™‚

      1. I also found screenshots that show a map that is green like Nagrand from Burning Crusade. I liked Nagrand a lot back then. Generally, it seems they designed beautiful maps again for BfA. I think I will really do this in autumn… I always like to explore new worlds πŸ™‚

      2. Yes, I have not gotten to that zone yet, but it looks gorgeous for sure πŸ™‚ I hope you will have a great time! Hey, do you like to take screenshots in WoW too? Like in real life? I just wondered now! πŸ™‚

      3. Yes, I sometimes did this too. It happened several times that I told my friends to wait, because the area we were questing or doing something else was so beautiful. Generally, in other games I also often stop and tell them I need to take a screeny. They always say “There is the photographer coming out of him again, even in this game” πŸ˜€ But most recently I usually just took screens if I needed some for an article on my blog.

      4. Glad to hear I am not alone πŸ™‚ If we were questing together, we’d not get anywhere, hah πŸ˜€ Oh, I’d love to see your take on BfA in screenshots.

      5. Gosh, Dennis, I just noticed I am no longer following you? Your comments made me wonder; I thought you were just hibernating a bit, but then I clicked your link and you are very much awake!

      6. Oh! I hope this is not a bug! Sometimes when someone follows my blog, I get these WordPress notifications two times, that someone followed me. I hope there is not something going on that prevents people to follow my blog.

        Or did you accidentally unfollow? Happened to me too in the past with other blogs when I cleaned up my reader, since so many bloggers go inactive after years, and when I want to remove them.

        I definitely slowed a bit down recently because it was summer, but usually I post something a week, sometimes more. I’m still active yes πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so πŸ™‚ Hah, yes, all those feathers flying around! Right? I really like it. Even that NPC holding up a plate with fruit, or standing with a bird, or…So much variety πŸ™‚

    1. Oh, hey Isey, thank you for leaving a comment – I have seen you around…! πŸ™‚ Ah, a fellow Druid, what a joy to have you swing by! πŸ™‚

      Aw, thank you, you can manage this too, I am sure of it! Practice, practice πŸ™‚

      Hah, well I actually use my old program that came with my Nikon camera – I use it for real pictures, and it’s the program I know, so I am sticking with it.

      But let me know, I’d be happy to tour you through an edit, all one needs is a bit of inspiration, πŸ™‚ You are more than welcome to send over a screenshot you like, we can use as an example – alunariasmail@gmail.com πŸ™‚


  1. Haha. I knew there would be more than 5 before I even started scrolling down. These are all really good. My favorite is the bear in a cave while it rains outside. That one feels so atmospheric. Excellent!

    1. Hah, busted, I guess πŸ˜€ Thank you πŸ™‚ And thank you so much for always returning and taking the time to leave a comment – I genuinely appreciate it so much..

      Aw, yes, I felt that way too, it seemed so peaceful and atmospheric (what a great word, I am so going to use it in the future). Have you taken any screenshots you want to share? πŸ™‚


      1. I love reading the comments to the blog posts so I try to comment regularly to keep conversations going too.

        I have taken a couple screenshots. Maybe when I get some free time I’ll make a post to show off what I’ve seen!

      2. Me too πŸ™‚ Oooh, am I reading this right, a post from Grimgrog!? Mission soon accomplished! πŸ˜€ No pressure! πŸ˜‰

        …Looking forward to it πŸ™‚


  2. So many beautiful and great screenshots! I play Horde but think I have to level an Alliance character this expansion because Tiragarde Sound looks amazing! I’m actually jealous of you getting to start in Kul Tiras because I think the zones look so much better than the Zandalar zones, but that might just be cause I’ve already leveled through them a few times on the beta and now on live.

    1. Syrco! Are you back?! I’ve been following you for so long, didn’t know you made a return, I thought you were still hibernating πŸ™‚ Happy to see you stop by here again too. I do not play Horde at all, but your zones looks quite well made too, I am looking forward to that as well. But yeah. I cherish Kul Tiras way more. I hope you will enjoy the time spent on my side eventually πŸ˜‰ Thank you!


      1. Yes, I just started playing again when the pre patch hit, but I’ve been playing the beta since April. Didn’t play much on live last fall and this winter because I was so busy with school and exams. Just started college now, so might not have much time to play, at least not every day. But I hope I’ll have some time cause I really like the expansion so far πŸ™‚

  3. Oh man, I’d say you went past 5 screenshots. πŸ˜› Haven’t we had that conversation about getting carried away with screenies? πŸ™‚

    Those bear form shots are great. The new updated model is sooo good!

    Lol, poor guy at the post office. Been there, done that. πŸ˜›

    I did happen to catch the Second Breakfast reference wandering through Boralus. I also managed to catch two seperate references to the Avatar: Last Airbender series if you’re familiar with that franchise. One was on the mountains just northeast of Freeport, where you can ride penguins down the mountain for penguin sledding. πŸ™‚ And the other is during a cutscene towards the end of the zone, but I won’t spoil anything.

    This zone was definitely a lot of fun! All those custom Kul Tiran models with all of their poses and emotes were a bunch of fun.

    Lol, those dogs are great. I think I caught a group photo at Blizzard HQ a while ago on twitter where they brought out all the corgi dogs they had, which was about 20 or so. πŸ˜€

    Those witches gave me a old-fashioned Snow White and Seven Dwarves vibe. Pretty cool, especially using that old arakkoa skeleton from Burning Crusade. I wonder if we could catch one of them doing that /dance emote. πŸ™‚

    Awesome post! Glad you’re now enjoying the new content.

    1. Haha, I sure did. Thank you! I think so too, gorgeous new model, that furr is so detailed.

      Hah, I know, right.

      Oh, I missed that reference! You can RIDE penguins? I missed that too, gosh. Thanks for the tip πŸ™‚ Ooh, what, okay, I am looking forward to getting there too!

      Right!? Love the new poses and such.

      Awww yeah I saw that photo infront of their HQs with the dogs too πŸ™‚


      Mine too! Was brilliant to add. Ohh, you are right, it’s that skeleton, well noticed πŸ™‚

      Thank you πŸ™‚ I hope you are too, it sure sounds like it.
