Seeing Azeroth in a new light

Like so many other people, I have been running around taking screenshots using the Inky Black Potion. What a wonderful addition to the game that little potion is!! For those of you who haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, it’s a potion you can buy from a vendor at the Darkmoon Faire that will give you a buff for 2hr that makes the world around you SUPER dark. So of course after raid last night I went around seeing what the world looked like in the middle of the night.

One of my favourite things about this potion is that it quite literally is making me see Azeroth in a whole new light. Some places really came alive in the darkness. Others just became down right terrifying. Some became so dark you could barely see in front of you. It really was incredible. It also helps me see why Blizzard don’t make night as dark as this. Yes, it’s awesome, but it has a lot of gameplay issues in that some things you quite literally can’t see. Anyone who is even slightly vision impaired would have a really hard time playing at all. So I’m really glad that it’s something we have the ability to try out and toggle on and off as we please. 🙂

I want to go to every continent and raid zone to try it out. In the meantime, here are some of my favourite pics so far:

I also played around with water walking and headed out in the middle of the ocean to use my spells in the dark.

    It looks awesome! But you’re right with the fact that even slightly vision impaired players would struggle if nights were this dark. I am a little nyctalopic, it doesn’t bother me too much IRL, but playing in this environment would probably be impossible. Plus I get scared easily and most of the places look so creepy!

    […] Twice sent me a photo of what I was missing by not going down to the DMF and testing it out there. It’s on my to-do list this weekend to get out into the world and  take some pictures like Cinder has. […]
