Super-Kewl "Pirates of the Burning Sea" Screenshots

I don't usually bother to post screenshots from upcoming games, but these shots from "Pirates of the Burning Sea" are just beautiful.

I'm sure these were made on a top-of-the-line system -- but as long as they are real in-game shots, then I am very impressed.

Sure looks better than "Pirates of the Caribbean Online."

Runing Naked Through Hillsbrad & Arathi

My Blood Elf Warlock, Verthandi, got the succubus quest in the Undercity.

The first thing you have to do is go collect the hearts of two virtuous men. One of them hangs out at the Greymane Wall in Silverpine Forest, which is a pain in the ass because the area is chock full of level 20 humans, wolves and lycanthropes, plus a nasty 24th-level Son of Arugal that enjoys attacking from behind. Plus the guy you have to kill takes a really, really long time to respawn.

After I killed him, I had to walk all the way to the frickin' Wetlands to find the second time. This means you have to run all the way through the redundantly-named Hillsbrad Foothills, and halfway through the Arathi Highlands (I suspect that "arathi" is the Elvish word for "highland"). Parts of both these areas are inhabited by nasty 30th level mobs, and even if I stuck to the roads, I was likely to get attacked and killed.

So I just decided to sprint for it. And to keep my armor and possessions from getting damaged in an attack, I did it naked.

Here's Verthandi, running naked through the Hillsbrad Foothills, not long after stripping naked and leaving Silverpine Forest.

Look! Thoradin's Wall!

These Alliance losers are staring at my sweet young body. There were a number of rude comments from passersby.

Running, running, running.

Here I am standing in front of the Thandol Span, just before reaching my objective. I was only killed three times!

Back in the Undercity, I have slain myself a succubus!

And here I am with my new best friend! I call her Kitten (as in "Kitten with a Whip").
