    The Dwarf of WSG!

    I don't know if this is a thing but I must ask...Does anyone besides me see the little Dwarf in the tree stump in the middle of WSG (Warsong Gulch) or is it just me? I see him just standing there in the distance as I ride out to the middle then he fades into the stump.....why is he there? I've been seeing him for some time now and it's been on my mind.

    If you put your graphics on lowest but your view distance on highest you can come quite close to him and you will see him pretty good.

    He has always been a motivation for me to go to WSG.

    IIRC he was just just some object who informs about flag captures etc. in bg chat.

    There's also 3 other dwarves on the path leading to the roof of the Alliance base.

    The game is filled with these hard to spot little weirdos. A programmer once said they used invisible bunnies to track where Onyxia would use Deep Breath.

    DO. NOT. TALK. ABOUT. THAT. DWARF!

    The slender dwarf will come after you!

    It is only common to see him if your system isn't operating on that high settings, as the tree stump loads slower than the dwarf. It is indeed to react on the PvP battles but he is, Slender Dwarf

    Not much of good screenshots, as it is all about your range from the tree stump before it starts loading up the tree stump.

    Just a random screenshot from Google Search, the dwarf in the back is what I call, 'Slenderdwarf'. He stands inside a tree stump as you get closer.

    Better way for you to see it, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VF-XrBOb04

    This is not advertising, this is the only video I could find that actually could show it better than explaining it.

    If you play with anything more than lowest graphic settings you are highly unlikely to notice him.

    Quick, call Ukraine and Russia, let them know to put their conflict on standby because Touch of Elune is BULLSHIT!

    Wow okay, that really baffled me.
    Of course it would make sense to actually use an NPC to shout those announcement on the BG, I've just never really thought about it.
    Heading to WSG right after work, just to make sure...
