A journey through Drustvar

Here we go, rounding up the discovery route of Battle for Azeroth and Kul Tiras, saving my favorite zone, Drustvar, as the last one.

Just the horde area remains then!

A screenshot says more than words, and I do believe it’s time for picture overload and less text, right πŸ™‚

So, in no particular order…

  1. Beautiful pictures πŸ˜€

    See, making zone themed transmogs is a great idea ^^
    It is always good to notice all the small amazing details this game has to offer.
    Princess and I have been doing Legion raids tours, taking our time to explore all the fun and beautiful details (and the funny ones. Did you know that Elisande has a harem of concubines that includes an β€œexotic concubine”- a gnome? xD)
    You should tag along sometime πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you πŸ™‚ It IS a good idea!

      Oh, I would love to tag along. I did not know Elisande has that? Reminds me of Black Temple πŸ™‚ I don’t know what it is; lately more and more days pass by, where I simply do not log on at all. I hope the story of 8.1 will turn that around

  2. Great summary of the zone. Its my favorite of the 6 we got. Looks like you had fun going through it. I didnt even think about delaying quest completion for those items! Man I wish they would implement new emotes for us to pose and stand and lean and different things like that!

    1. Thank you; it was not easy to cherry pick the screenshots, I had plenty πŸ™‚

      Oh, yeah, I have submitted that as a suggestion in game several times. I would love to! It appears to be in game already, so why not!

    1. Oh, I didn’t even make the connection there; Kul Tiran Druid Forms, are they going to look that way? Gosh, the details! A part of me would actually love to start over now. Give BfA a break and eventually reach it, once things are more settled and less bugged.

  3. Hey Alunaria! Sorry for being so inconsistent with checking in here. I just never took to blogging like you and your friends did, but it is a lot of fun to pop in and read some of your stories every now and then!

    At Falconhurst I actually did stick around and listen a while. My favorite part was when he ran through the Kobolds and Catacombs theme. I imagined Matthew Mercer’s voice when he was going through the lyrics. πŸ™‚ That story about the stag in the forest was pretty excellent as well.

    I remember flying by that mountain seperating Drustvar and Stormsong and there was this crazy blizzard. I’ve tried going back there, but I haven’t seen it again. It was one of the coolest weather effects I’ve seen in-game!

    Love that bear form ice skating shot. πŸ™‚

    That shot with the campfire between you and that marksman is great. I never realized how precise the lighting effects were.

    I should really go back and do that wedding bit. For some reason it was being glitchy when I was there, so I ended up skipping it. It’s the only part of Drustvar I didn’t end up doing.

    Gratz on your completionism of Kul Tiras! Have a good one.

    1. Hey Zeshio πŸ™‚ Not to worry at all, I’m glad you still stop by, even though it might be “inconsistent” as you describe it, quality beats quantity, right πŸ™‚

      I agree, I loved the stag story too. Have you noticed that he only offers Druids to set their Hearthstone to him, and not other classes? πŸ™‚

      A blizzard!? I have not seen! Aw, darn, no screenshot, please try to take one and share it if you capture it again πŸ™‚

      I think so too! That lighting just was so beautiful. A lot can be said, but the art team of WoW outdid themselves this expansion.

      Aw, yeah, you should. Good call to skip it if it was bugged though, that really hinders immersion. I hope you’ll enjoy it.

      Thank you πŸ™‚ How do you fare these days? πŸ™‚

  4. Drustvar is the last zone storyline I have to do. I’m currently debating on if I want to go back on my 120 warrior and complete it or save it for the next alliance character I level. I can’t wait, because between your post and the things I’ve seen/heard about the story, it sounds right up my alley.

    1. I’m glad my post has won you over a little to look forward to Drustvar πŸ™‚ It is a very good zone, if you are into that whole theme there too. I wish you all the luck ahead πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much for saying that πŸ™‚ It took sometime to come together. Aw, well thank you! I canΒ΄t imagine what Blizzard would want me to do, though πŸ™‚

      1. These days it is all about video, but I think a person who can make good in game “reportage” with excellent in game screenshots is something special. As a reader, it makes me participate in the world making more than watching a video of game play. Maybe it is just me, but a lot of such game videos have pretty bad story telling. Taliesin and Evitel have created something of their own, but sometimes it is just too “noisy” or intense.
        Your posts are often like machinima in still pictures.

      2. You are right about that. I actually noticed recently, that Taliesin and Evitel even cut out the moments, where he breathes! Like, after he said an enormous amount of words, and he needs to inhale, it sometimes gets cut, so there is no “pause”. It can indeed feel to intense/rushed/noisy. (though IΒ΄m a big fan of their videos)

        Thank you so much πŸ™‚
