Warcraft Less Traveled #57 – Lake Dumont

Posted in Podcast Episodes on October 4th, 2011 by Skolnick

Episode #57 Timecapsule: Lake Dumont is a secret subzone hidden in the mountains of northern Feralas. Appearing only after the Cataclysm, explorers of this area will need a flying mount to get over the high mountain ridge to reach this valley. In the center of Lake Dumont, an unnamed island is found. A few of the mysterious features on the island include the burning ruins of a mage’s watchtower, a number of Feralas-style trees, a small hut, and a special grave marked with ‘IVAN’. The truly interesting part of Lake Dumont island are its NPC inhabitants. Twelve level 85 NPCs are seen on this island, each busy in activity. It appears that the NPCs are named after real-life employees of Blizzard games. For example, NPC draenei Jake Patton, works as a Blizzard editor; while Lich King production assistant Larissa Bussell is found here as a NPC worgen. Lake Dumont is another well crafted location that makes great use of the lonely areas between the various Azeroth zones.

Warcraft Less Traveled #55 – Steam Pools Resort

Posted in Podcast Episodes on August 29th, 2011 by Skolnick

Episode #55 Timecapsule: Introduced in the southern mountains of Feralas with patch 4.1, the Gadgetzan Goblins have founded a hidden “vacation” destination called The Steam Pools Resort. Run by gobin Resort Director Lasha Gearwheel, the Steam Pools is a well designed subzone @(70,73) that is formed around a number of warm mountain lakes. The resort is made up a numerous NPC vacation houses, a Head Chef NPC named Gordon Tramsay, an NPC named Johnny Awesome, a large sandy beach, and dozens of horde/alliance NPC races found relaxing near the lakeshore. There are no current quests/achievements associated with the Steam Pools Resort – aside from this sub-zone’s use during the Mysterious Grey Camel Figurine event. The Steam Pools is a fun, in-game destination that showcases dwarves, humans, blood elves, and Tauran NPC clad in swimsuits and bikinis… whether you were prepared to see them, or not.
