Seeking the secrets of Ulduar

Raleigh and I got to spend some quality time with Lanfranco as he finally found time to venture into Ulduar with me. Ulduar has been my favorite raid since the very first time I visited the place, and it's still as amazing as ever.

One of the major reasons why I looked forward to Pandaria so much was because I knew it would be possible to do Ulduar with less people. Now, based on the information that I gathered with Lanfranco, it looks like a great part of the raid would be soloable - surprisingly even Flame Leviathan - and I've got just the thing for that: a blood death knight. Both Raleigh and Vladan are in need of transmogrification gear from Ulduar, so it looks like I'll be having a lot of that in my calendar... which really doesn't bother me at all. Generally I find soloing various things one of the most pleasant things to do in the game; I'm much more of a solo player, just like I am a bit anti-social in real life. I just like the fact that I can enjoy that amazing content at my own pace. Going there is always voluntary, so it doesn't stir negative feelings like that.

Lan let me have the Archivum Data Disc, which is a drop from the Assembly of Iron in hard mode, to unlock Algalon, who we weren't yet able to try. I didn't get to complete the questline in Wrath of the Lich King, but it seems pretty cool and interesting.

There have been rumours that Pandaria doesn't show on the miniature versions of Azeroth in Ulduar, but there looks to be some chunk of something that appears much like a continent on those maps.


















It must be Pandaria down there.

    1. What a pleasant surprise this new comment was!

      Thank you very much! :) I did edit them a bit, by adding contrast and some glow. But it just made the colours deeper and enhanced the feel that Ulduar has methinks.

  2. I still love Ulduar as a raid and backdrop. Great job on capturing so many different aspects of the place.

    1. I thank you very much! Ulduar does still stand out from the other raids, and Elegon was an awesome surprise when I first heard of him. :)
