I don't yet have a lot to say about the newly accessible continent, because I haven't done very much there yet. I do, however, have quite a bit to show, because I've been looking all around. It is, simply, staggering—literally breathtaking for me, from time to time.
Warsong Hold is the Horde stronghold in the Borean Tundra, at the west end of the continent. The zeppelin from Orgrimmar actually flies right into it:
Inside is everything needed to prepare the massive offensive the Horde wishes to launch against the Lich King's forces, both materials...
...and planning. The two orcs at right are Garrosh and Saurfang, who are still arguing:
Right outside is a massive mining operation, partly infested with nerubians (of whom I didn't get any good pictures this time):
And beyond that, my first look at the actual Borean Tundra. Notice, by the way, that auroras are visible day and night over much of Northrend:
It is illegal in 17 states to be cuter than this baby mammoth....
...which means this tuskarr is in some risk of trouble if he visits the US:
Not this guy, however:
I like the taunka, northern cousins to the tauren:
The Scourge is, of course, never far off:
And finally for now...the Borean Tundra has worms! Big ones! They have a great acid spit that reduces the target's effective armor. This is Kurgan (he is, after all, but a worm):
Next time, sightseeing my way east toward the Howling Fjord.
