Meet the Family

The Brightblades may be a familiar name to some, especially if you’re into archaeology or PVP and with the latest expansion, I thought it might be nice to introduce the family. Belloc Brightblade For Horde players, he’s the Archaeology Trainer in Orgrimmar (just like Harrison Jones for Alliance). His name is derived from René Belloq, the main antagonist in Raiders of the Lost Ark but can also be found in Uldum, Krasarang...

The Crystal Jewel

The other day, I was reminded of a recent visit to Questacon, our National Science and Technology Centre where my favourite exhibit involved swapping a rather large jewel with a bag of sand. Swap a ‘diamond’ sitting on a pressure sensor with a bag of sand, so you don’t wake the statue Much like the Indiana Jones movie, the skull (or in this case, diamond) was sitting on a pressure sensitive plate so you can see the...

Cymre Jones NPC

It was pretty much out of the blue and totally unexpected but after an impromptu brainstorming session for a new WoD achievement, Jonathan LeCraft (Sr. Game Designer at Blizzard) sent me the following DM: My eyes grew wide as I stared at the text.

Whoo-Cha!

I’ve been an admirer of Noxychu‘s art for such a long time now, ever since I discovered she was the official artist for WoWHead. When I first saw this tauren, I couldn’t help think of my hunter who also sports the plaits so I would secretly imagine my character as the model. I now know her featured models are based off various WowHead employees. Then I started seeing all these Blizzcon badges all over twitter as well...

Jonesing For An Update

As I flew over Undercity on my way to Scholo, I noticed just how impressive the ruins actually are. It’s been almost a decade since my first visit to the old capital but if I remember correctly, the exterior was only updated in Cataclysm. That’s when I noticed some of the more interesting historical aspects of the place. It’s really quite impressive when you take the time to look around but as I went to explore one...

Cymre Jones – the Motion Picture

This project has been in the works for a while but I’m excited to say that the video (created by Navimie) is finally ready to view. I only saw it for the first time today and I must admit, the music was a great fit. Funnily enough, the archaeology scene was deleted but I think it still captures who she is. As with any great adventure you’ll find action, exploration, a love interest and even a blooper when she’s flung...
