MoP Beta Files: More Fun Stuff!

It's been a couple of weeks since we had a new Beta build and I'm just waiting for new content to be added.  I leveled Kaliope to 87 so she's currently XP locked.  I haven't quite finished the current zone but I'd prefer to wait until I can get XP again. The only gathering profession available is skinning so I continue to prioritize that over questing when I hit an area riddled with bodies. I'm hopeful that my supply of leather will give me a jumpstart when it's time to start making stuff.

I know you guys are anxious for more info, so I put together another fun little post with images taken from the Beta realm. The bulk of these are from the second zone: Valley of the Four Winds. For one of them I snuck into an adjacent zone and somehow didn't get immediately booted. The zone was mostly empty and devoid of any mobs, but I found a few near the path leading in.  Check this out and see if you can figure out the joke:

Hint: It's all in the name :)

A really impressive sight I came across in VotFW is this group of grazing animals. Normally this would not seem like much to see, except that the beasts are moving as a herd. They wander back and forth across the south end of the zone and even get up to running speed occasionally. I actually stopped to watch and follow them for a few minutes, I was that taken aback with this when I saw it:

Another thing I wanted to share is the new model for Aquatic Form. The instant I got wind of this, I HAD to have it. I hate the current aquatic form, so I was in heaven:

Finally, I saw this while I was questing in VotFW and I had to go back for a better look. I just couldn't figure out what I was looking at! This is one of the more bizarre things I've seen in WoW and I certainly hope I find a quest that provides some background for it:

In case you can't tell from the image, this is a bird (hawk I think) carrying some sort of letter or package! There are more of them in the area, I just happened to get this pic with just the one.

If there's anything you've heard about in Beta that you'd like to know more about, let me know and I'll check into it. Bear in mind that professions are not implemented!


  1. Quick FYI: The beta realms are down for "maintenance" so maybe I'll get lucky and see a new build!

  2. There's a quest to gather those bags of flour, IIRC. You can pick up the ones on the ground or you can kill the bird and get the drop.

  3. Nice! Looks like a new build is in progress so I look forward to check it out.

  4. I love that aquatic form! Now if they'd make travelling form speedier...
