Taking screenshots is a new love of mine in WoW. A place to show them off was actually the main reason I started this blog. Naturally, I thought it would be fun to go with each of my pets to their "natural habitats" and take some shots. Whenever possible I tried to take the shot as close to the original taming location as I could. This project turned out to be quite the undertaking but was a lot of fun and I have some amazing shots out of it.
Aranea comes from the war torn Molten Front in Mount Hyjal. Her gorgeous luminescence is like a cool drink of water in this hot harsh battlefield.
The swampy dank Dustwallow Marsh was home to Casanova before he joined my stable. This zone is not to be missed during the twilight hours. The warm sunset colors reflecting off the marshy pools of water make for one impressive sight. And it's teeming with wildlife..aka potential hunter pets :D!
Uldum is one of my favorite zones. The harsh sandy deserts contrast with the lush oasis areas. There is also some very impressive architecture there. The sandy desolate areas make perfect habitat for ChaCha's wild counterpart, Madexx. And the stary skies of Uldum at night are unmatched in their beauty!
Daredevil hails from the fiery lava pools outside of the Firelands raid instance. This flaming sexy beast would fit nowhere else! I love this particualr part of Mt. Hyjal as it reminds me of the flowing lava from the Kilauea volcano in HI that has been erupting since I was a child.
Dulcinea, my gorgeous snow white Saber cat, comes from the icy land of Winterspring. Her kind are found in the northern area surrounding Frostsaber Rock.
The barren dusty Sithilus was originally home to Feminazi, my Hive'Regal Spitfire wasp. Everything in this zone seems to have a red sheen to it and you can practically taste the dust in the air here.
Freyja's wild counterpart, Magria, can occasionally be seen wandering a wooded strip right outside the Molten Front in Mt. Hyjal. The zone itself is in conflict which is mirrored perfectly by the new growth attempting to emerge amid fiery combatants and the scorched earth.
Fungal Rock on the outskirts of Ungoro Crater was once Kapre's home. He is definitely King of this Jungle!
Marama can be found deep within a cave on the Alliance territory of Azuremyst Isle, just off the Kalimdor coast. A beautiful creature like her should never be shut up in the back of a cave. Now she's with me enjoying the sights and sounds of WoW out in the open where she belongs.
Mistletoe's wild self can occasionally be seen flying high..very high..in the sky above Mount Hyjal. When perched up in the tree from which he is tamed, the view is spectacular!
Muffet originally came from the Northern Barrens, just across the Durotar border. This vast prairie zone is teeming with herbs, wildlife, and a huge sky reminiscent of the American West in its pioneer days.
Sancho Panza comes from the Norther Barrens as well, not far from Muffet. I found him wandering the banks of the Sludgefen. Life amidst the nasty goblins found there couldn't have been great so I scooped him up and took him home with me!
The golden pink zone of Silithus was originally home to my silithid, Tagmata. Her colors and long limbs match perfectly with the shades and structures of the complex system of hives she comes from.
While Kapre came from the drier less dense area surrounding Un'Goro Crater, Vixen lived right smack in the middle of it. This crater is full of exotic plant and animal life. I can almost feel the steam and humity on my skin in this zone. If Kapre is the King of this jungle, she is most certainly its Queen!
White Lady was found wandering the snowy caps of Winterspring. She blends in perfectly with the snowy cold zone. I love snow... skiing, hiking, pretty much anything is better when done in snow. For that reason this is one of my favorite zones in WoW. That, and it gave me two of my most loved pets, White Lady and Dulcinea!
Llewelynn is the only one of my current pets to come from this continent. The wildflower covered foothills of the Twilight Highlands are where his wild counterpart calls home.
Apple has undergone a transformation from his former green skin to a new purple and blue one. I found this version of him wandering the spooky crumbling ruins of Zul'Drak. This zone has a desolate feel to it despite being filled with buildings, demons, and beasts of all sorts.
Scholazar Basin is simply chock-full of wildlife and all sorts of beasts just waiting to be tamed. It's lush and verdant yet it doesn't have that steamy humid feel that Un'Goro has. Three of the most prized rares in WoW also come from here...and I am lucky enough to have all of them: Andraste, my Aotona. Badcop, my King Krush. And my very special Jameel, the ever popular, ever prized Loque'Nahak.
The icy battle-weary Icecrown was originally home to Boudicca, my saber worg. I found her in the town of Juntenheim, a viking fortress with soaring architecture and beautiful vistas. Icecrown is another of my favorite zones. It's cold and stark but beautiful at the same time.
A cave in northern Dragonblight is where I found my Savage. This stunning zone features vast snowy expanses, frozen beaches, ice walled caverns, and giant skeletons of the enormous creatures that call this place home. Another of my favorite zones, it's crisp, cold, and gorgeous.
Netherstorm, the land of purple rocks and cosmic skies, is where I found Armida. I love this zone, it's so eery and harsh yet there is an unexpected serenitiy here. The epic beauty of this zone is one of WoW's under appreciated treasures.
My Belladonna was found wandering between the spikes and underneath the blood-red sky of Blade's Edge Mountains. Unfriendly and unforgiving, this zone manages to be spectacularly beautiful in its harshness.
Kuuipo hails from the caustic zone of Shadowmoon Valley. This place is full of green bubbling pools of toxic ooze, an ominously green sky, and a landscape that features various shades of olive and grey. While not what I would call beautiful, it is stunning nonetheless.
