Greetings mmo-champion and its visitors!
I have recently produced and published a video that showcases interestingly different places on an old ALPHA client (from 2003) of the original World of Warcraft, and I thought some of you might be interested in it as well.
Some things were seriously different back then, and at least I found it very interesting to see how WoW have evolved since then.
ps. I would love it if you would leave a comment on the movie at warcraftmovies.com if you have an account there. Thank you
A journey through time to a WoW once forgotten.
From before most people had even had a chance to play it.
Many areas, things and places were very different and this video aims to show you some of these.
All footage within is from a client released December 11'th in 2003, which is just before the official BETA of the original WoW was launched.
You'd be surprised how much was finished, but many things and intentions seemed to be very different from how they turned out in the end.
Places explored (random order):
Winterspring - Unfinished
Ironforge - completely different layout
Caer Darrow (scholomance) - Wierd
AQ entrance - As if not an instance
Stratholme - Interesting end.
Gillijim's Isle - Forgotten and vanished Island
Island of Dr. Lapidis - Also gone
Karazhan - Very different design.
Gadgetzhan - Smaller, BB buildings
Darnasus - How do you get off?
Zul'Gurub - Unfinished
Old dark portal - Portal different
Ogrimmar - Strange pathways.
Mt. Hyjal - Beginning different
I tried to make the places shown in the video get progressively more interesting, but I am not quite sure if I succeeded in this. So hang on if you think it might be a bit slow in the beginning
This Movie is a relaxed tour through a WoW that once was.
So sit back, and enjoy the ride.
