    Draenor is Seriously Lacking Mushroom Caps.

    Anyone who has played Warcraft 2 and Warcraft 3 will know what im talking about. Most of the missions in outland/draenor take place around Mushroom Trees.... It gave the world a more alien vibe and I want that vibe to return....

    And no, a few mushrooms here and there around zangarmarsh doesnt cut it. If I wanted palm trees I would go back to azeroth.

    Im begging blizzard to please respect lore and stop retconning.

    If Tanan Jungle is missing these types of trees it will be very hard to relate it back to the warcraft universe...



    If skeptical here are some images.

    Yeah, it's always made me a bit sad. It was a really fun little feature of Draenor. I understand fleshing the planet out and adding more variety, but that didn't need to come at the cost of having little to no examples of the original look (which was there even before the planet exploded at the end of Warcraft II). There's a reason both of my imaginary new Outland zones on my website at least involve mushrooms, if not reddish deserts and green water.

    The time is now to bring these things to the Devs attention. Else it will be forgotten. Details like this DO matter to people that want to be taken back to the old warcraft 2 days and will only serve to increase that sense of nostalgia that this expansion is trying to bring.

    I second mushroom caps. Hope they add them.

    Yeah, as soon as I saw this, I cancelled my subscription and sent Blizzard an angry e-mail. I will now also post this on the official forums, so everyone can see how upset I am.

    How dare he demand consistency and accurate lore foliage! He should definitely hold his tongue until map design far in to development making it more difficult for them to adjust!

    considering the map is already viewable for draenor I dont see what is wrong with letting blizzard know that lore isn't being respected. At least from a visual POV.

    In all fairness, now is the best time to do that, before it gets too far into beta or release. I can understand people complaining about something, as long as they back it up with reasonable arguments. This is one such occurrence.

    Also, OP, I'd HIGHLY suggest posting to the actualy blizz forums, otherwise your concerns aren't likely to be noted.

    Better to bring something up now than later, the more time passes the less likely it becomes that they will do something with any feedback for the level design. Once they are pretty much finish it's very unlikely that they'll go and add stuff to the zones.

    OT: I do like the shrooms and would love to see them, but I suppose I can live without them.

    No, because this was after the orcs got into contact with the demon blood; where draenor was already a mess before it exploded. Hellfire Peninsula isn't even hellfire yet, because the whole zone isn't tainted with the fel-energy yet. So maybe there weren't so many mushrooms yet. It is the same as the Plaguewoods in the Eastern Plaguelands: the Mushrooms there were very very small or non-existant, but a few years later there were gigantic. The same could be the case in Draenor:

    Well to be honest these shrroms we know about are from Zangarmash and otehr areas, BUT mostly thats caused by the exposion caused by the portals and the energy released. So these shrroms are more like mutants.
    People dont forget - we are going in the past Draenor, before the explosion, before it even bacame Outland, so ther ei sno need to have such shroom things there.
    Im sorry that im the one who broke it for a

    Umm, people were screaming about MoP as soon as it was officially announced, and this thread bothers you?

    Also, when should we 'complain' if not during the development phase? After the development phase, when it's too late? That makes no sense, good sir.

    I miss my 'shroomy Draenor. There are hundreds of different 'shroom species they could've drawn from for variety but noo, dull trees everywhere.
