Shared Topic: What Reminds You of Home
Or more specifically, what in WoW reminds you of home. Syrco of Syrco Owl came up with a great shared topic idea.
Have you ever felt like something in WoW reminds you of where you live or where you’re from?
Like a zone or area which looks like where you grew up, where you spent your holidays or simply reminds you of your country?
My first moments in WoW were experienced in Teldrassil. If you look up, that’s what you’ll see. A canopy of trees.
If you stand in my backyard and look up … yep … it’s almost the same. I can’t speak for all of Virginia, but where I live, you travel on winding roads through trees with only occasional glimpses of sky. A horizon is something you see in the movies. A horizon would probably scare the crap out of me.

It’s probably why I immediately felt at home in WoW. I loved Darkshore and Ashenvale and before that stupid Deathwing tore it all up I would make the trek to Kalimdor to level no matter where the character was born.
Now I’m going to check that shed for a sign of Elf. It could work both ways you know. Stands to reason, if I feel comfortable there, they’d feel comfortable here. Doesn’t hurt to check.
