    This thread goes nowhere, just like your character trying to use that 'portal'

    I guess he is under heavy nostalgia problems so he wants to share with us some pointless pics of the past .

    No offence.

    I prefer LK pics though.

    The good news is that if you walk backwards fast enough and for long enough you can reverse the worlds spin around the sun causing everyone to travel back in time to TBC so you can put those rose colored glasses back on.

    I get the point of this pic.

    It's the artist trying to highlight the decay of time and it's about the natural wildlife being forced to relocate from their homes.

    but seriously I remember this right before Kazzak the Supreme came and crushed your skull in.

    Seems like you have your own pair right now! Just kidding, but you made me smile.
    Hearts are man kinds lock. If only everyone's emotions were a skeleton key, this world would be a happier place.

    Look out, he has a phantom blade.

    Also I remember Blasted Lands being 50+, with level 58ish ogres and obviously the 60-61 demon elites instead of 47-55. o.o

    I still don't understand the stupendous topographical inconsistencies around the Dark Portal. It actually bothers me much more than the Icecrown inconsistencies for some reason.

    I was actually just looking for images and youtube videos of this last week. I started playing during TBC and I was curious as to what the portal looked like before the expansion. Now the portal looks like an exquisite piece of art and I figured there would have been no reason to put so much detail into it before TBC came out.

    Not sure what the point in the thread is but I do enjoy the old dark portal. The mystery of what was behind it, when would it open etc? Always assumed it would re-link us to outland especially after wc3 tft missions showed that outland was all that was left of draenor.

    Yeah it was a bit smaller back then. But the proportions weren't "that" right to begin with.

    In Warcraft 3 it looked something like this:

    Dark magic...no doubt about it.

    Oh god.. the graphics... LOOK AWAY! But yeah I've always been fascinated by the Dark Portal. When I first started WoW in 2007 with my buddy, we planned out a "Great Journey" to get to the Dark Portal. Only one would ever make it through (me, he quit playing too early)

    Edit: Your UI has my mind blown... what in the hell are all your spells doing on the side of the screen like that!?!?!

    Well i gues that screenshot is from 2005/2006 and back then there were very few addons. That left bar is the Blizzard Standart UI. I used this bar mostly for macros and other stuff

    I don't understand the stupid comments here, The amount of threads i see where people share pictures/stories of things is quite high,
    I quite like this picture, i started playing in TBC so never saw the portal before that^^

Find an excuse to let one of these off the chain, and I personally guarantee, the bad guys won't even wanna come out of their caves. Ladies and gentlemen, for your consideration... the Jericho.
