Before we begin, a message from our sponsors… Er, well, we don’t actually have any sponsors, so it’s really just me. Ahem, anyway, I know that Blizzard is really pushing the Alliance/Horde conflict with Battle for Azeroth. (It’s pretty hard to miss.) And I know that we have people here on both sides of that divide. But we’re all here because we love WoW (and/or other Blizzard games). So let’s do our best to be chill about Blizzard’s encouragement to be out for each other’s blood, here and elsewhBlizzard Watch

A LEGO fan of World of Warcraft has recreated Theramore by using over fifty-five thousand bricks to do so. It is a faithful rendition of the city that is scaled nearly identical to the in-game version. You may remember Theramore as the home of Jaina Proudmoore as well as the tipping point in the war between Horde and Alliance, ultimately won by the Horde when Garrosh dropped a mana bomb on the city to utterly destroy it.mmorpg - wow
