It’s been a little while since I did a WoW article. Not that I stopped caring, I’ve just been preparing for an exam and dealing with assholes at work. Sometimes you just don’t have enough hours in the day to play around online. So I got the idea yesterday whilst running around looking for a certain place that sometimes having a simple JPG map just isn’t enough.
Sure, you can google the damned place you wanna go, but I’ve found that a lot of times you’ll get someone asking a question, and then a very shallow-detail answer. For instance:
CANZ SOMEONE TELL ME HOWE TO GET TO BURNNING STIEPPES?
I’m sort of reverse paraphrasing there, but for some reason when people ask questions online they become lolcats and can’t spell for shit. And then you get this kind of answer:
GO THROUGH RIVERSHIRE.
Okay, I’m probably sure that if you asked for directions to someone’s house, they wouldn’t give you the name of a street next to it and that is it. That would be absolutely ridiculous. Unfortunately, that is how most internet roamers think, ridiculously. So I did a little searching, and I came across this website.
It works just like Google Maps. Here’s a few of the things you can have come up on the screen right next to the map itself:
Show Alliance Travel Path
Show Horde Travel Paths
Show Names for Locations
Show Names for Zones
Show Outland Herbs
Show Outland Ore
Show Outland Treasure
So go ahead and check it out. I’m sure you’ll find it an invaluable source of information when trekking around the lands. I used it to map out a mining run, and made a killing off it.
Hopefully this won’t be my last WoW post for a while. I plan on blogging more often. But I’m human just like you guys… and shit happens.
