Requiem For A Golden Dream

Evale 1

It’s been over a year since Garrosh Hellscream destroyed the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. Over a year since the most beautiful protected part of Pandaria was forever changed. I am saddened knowing that despite our best efforts…we could not fix it.

The Vale remains corrupted. Planting a tree did not change that; something lovely has been lost forever.

I took these screenshots on the eve of patch 5.4. I wanted to remember the Vale as it had been. The changes there seem to be permanent and I don’t want it’s memory to be lost.

These were taken on my old computer. I could never run the graphics on high so the magic of the water was not accurately captured. Hopefully I managed to get the spirit of it though.

As we get ready to leave Pandaria for Draenor, I leave you with one of my favorite parts of Mists. This was the Golden Dream.

The water had sparkles going across it, which you can sort of see with the last two shots.

  1. *Nostalgic sigh* Man I’d forgotten how beautiful that zone was! Hopefully there is something equally gorgeous in WoD, and we DON’T destroy it!
