The Scarab Dais lore and history - Field Photographer Friday

Posted 1 year, 2 months ago by Preston.

Field Photographer Friday is a weekly look at the lore and history behind locations around World of Warcraft. This week, we're taking a look at the Scarab Dais!

The Scarab Dais is located in southern Silithus on the Kalimdor continent, just outside of Ahn’Qiraj. The Dais, and the Scarab Gong it holds are relics of the Qiraji empire that were reconstituted by Fandral Staghelm and Anachronos following the War of the Shifting Sands nearly 1,000 years before World of Warcraft’s time. Following the War, the duo and their armies created a magical barrier around the walls of Ahn’qiraj and set the Scarab Gong atop the Dais to be used as the mechanism to open the Scarab Gate, should the need ever arise. The Gong has seemingly been guarded by Jonathan the Revelator, a Watcher from the Bronze dragonflight, since it was put in place.

Posted 1 year, 2 months ago by Preston.

Field Photographer Friday is a weekly look at the lore and history behind locations around World of Warcraft. This week, we're taking a look at Blackrock Mountain!

Blackrock Mountain is located between the Burning Steppes and Searing Gorge on the Eastern Kingdoms continent. The mountain first formed as a volcano during the War of the Three Hammers when the Dark Iron clan of dwarves summoned the Firelord Ragnaros from his prison beneath Azeroth. Ragnaros bursting through the earth decimated what was once part of the Redridge Mountains, turning it into the fiery zones we know today and giving way to the large spire of Blackrock Mountain in the center.

Posted 1 year, 3 months ago by Preston.

Field Photographer Friday is a weekly look at the lore and history behind locations around World of Warcraft. This week, we're taking a look at the Caverns of Time!

The Caverns of Time is an expansive cave system located in Tanaris and is home to the bronze dragonflight. The dragonflight was blessed by the titan Aman’thul with the powers of time travel and a mastery of temporal magic. They use these powers to guard time against meddling from the infinite dragonflight and others wishing to change past events. The Caverns also house the Hourglass of Time, a powerful artifact created by Nozdormu, the leader of the bronze dragonflight, to hold the sands of time. Inside the Caverns, you can see streams of energy flowing to and from the Hourglass, with some of the energies flowing from what appears to be space itself open in the sides of the Caverns.
