World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King – Fishing – Dalaran Wish Coins

Blizzard Developers have always been known for their easter eggs and humor. The fountain located on the southwest of Dalaran, by the Alliance bank area, can be the source of some funny findings. You would require fishing tradeskill. These are at least eight of the coins you can find there from famous Warcraft characters: Aegwynn, Prince Arthas, King Terenas Menethil, Stalvan, Tirion Fordring, Alleria, and … Teron Gorefiend.

For those who played Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal or have read World of Warcraft: Beyond the Dark Portal (pocket book), Teron Gorefiend was sent by Ner’zhul to Azeroth to retrieve three artifacts of power: the Scepter of Sargeras (Tomb of Sargeras), Book of Medivh (Alterac) and the Eye of Dalaran. Who would have known Teron would throw a wish coin on the fountain of Dalaran before departing with the black dragons? Thanks a bunch to Handclaw for providing these images.

Salandria is the blood elf orphan who gives quests in Shattrath City during the Children’s week. Kryll is the goblin who served Deathwing during the second war (Warcraft: Day of the Dragon). Molok was a dwarf who flew Rhonin on a gryphon toward Khaz Modan. Molok died when a dragon knocked both off their mount. He was against flying Rhonin to his destination. Special thanks to Handclaw for providing the images.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the fountain you can fish these coins from.

Legendary Pictures – World of Warcraft Film Blizzcon video

WCRadio put up the video of the Legendary Pictures Panel held at Blizzcon 2007, where Chris Metzen, Paul Sams and Thomas Tull (Legendary Pictures Chairman) discussed details of the Film with fans. The video lasts 43 minutes, and it is very amusing, humorous and informative.  At the end you will see a concept art that shows Teldrassil.  If that is a hint of things to see, we will probably see Darnassus city and of course Tyrande Whisperwind.

It will be a live action film portraying a war conflict between the Alliance and the Horde.  The timeframe is set to a year before the events of the MMORPG.  The main character will be a new heroe described to be kick-ass Human.  Most of the story is told from the point of view of the Alliance, but there will be Horde elements with Thrall making it to the big screen. Thomas Tull hinted they want to make the first film a masterpiece that will make fans be excited of seeing what we we see everyday in the MMO come to live—and by saying “first film” basically let the cat out that they envision more films based on World of Warcraft.
