Rules - you MUST be wearing a disguise, or have drunk a noggenfogger to become a skeleton, or have eaten a savoury deviate delight to become a pirate. also you must have NO name plate in the picture, and no unit/action bars. To make the screenshot as anonymous as possible.

The most obscure place, or most difficult to get to, or most dangerous! will win first prize.

Oooooo fun, I knows places!

22-12-2009, 09:19 PM
Wall walking my way behind the gates of AQ would probably not get me a win would it? Sounds cool though, good luck to all who enter :)

23-12-2009, 03:35 AM
Would shapeshifted druids count as disguised?

23-12-2009, 03:54 AM
When you say obscure locations, does this include places that require some fishy movement to reach, like the area underneath Org/IF?

23-12-2009, 04:55 AM
Is it still possible to get there?

Are we able to submit multiple screenshots?

23-12-2009, 10:54 AM
1 screenshot per person.

Druid forms won't count as I'll be able to tell it was a druid who took the picture! We want it as anonymous as possible. So a winter gnome disguise, or noggenfogger or savoury deviate pirate is best please.

I want obscure locations that I won't be able to guess, but make it interesting. Like on top of a mountain somewhere, or sat on a tree stump that I won't be able to guess where it is. Or somewhere very dangerous, say in the jaws of some monster, but obviously you need to be alive whilst taking the screenshot so the disguise doesn't wear off.

23-12-2009, 04:26 PM
I'm not entering these, they're just some very old images.



Used to get anywhere in the game, until the wallwalking thingy was nerfed (rightly so due to pvp exploiters etc). I kinda miss those times. anyway, sorry for derail.

28-12-2009, 01:28 PM
Thank you for all the awesome entries =) I had great fun going through the pictures and trying to guess where you all were. When I have some free time I will upload the winning pics to image shack or somewhere, so you can all enjoy the guessing game.

Winners are!
1st - Morilith (underwater by a mysterious axe)
2nd - Sema (looks like a runestone underground somewhere)
3rd - Nabrun (Dancing skele on top of a lion statue. Methinks the trolls are involved in it's creation mon)
4th - Ruki (I'm guessing a winterspring graveyard, or is that sand =O)

Morilith - If you could send me a message or post here which in-game code from the link you would like please =) also which colour gem, I'll see if I can transfer one over to herd side for you.
Sema - I'll poke you in game =)
Nabrun - I'll poke you in game too.
Ruki - please let me know which gem you'd like =)

Thank you all again!

I couldn't get to my place, i guess it's since they changed the wall walking mechanics, but I don't recall using much of that :(

28-12-2009, 03:24 PM
Hmm Jarelan. Does that mean noone can visit your special place anymore?

Jimmy the Necromancer
28-12-2009, 04:06 PM
Aw, TBC Deadmines not good enough? :(

28-12-2009, 09:15 PM
Can you show us the actual winning pictures?
Please? :D

28-12-2009, 09:48 PM
my pic:


28-12-2009, 10:22 PM
Thankee Semas - I will upload the other 3 when my computer isn't downloading stuff. Doesn't seem to like doing more than one thing at once.

Where was yours taken Sema? I thought BFD at first but it's too obvious and not quite right, maybe in one of those moonkin caves in Ashenvale?

28-12-2009, 10:57 PM
Looks like the pass between Ashenvale and Stonetalon.

28-12-2009, 11:17 PM
Indeed, the gnome is right, its taken in Deeptalon Path between Stonetalon mountains and ashenvale in one of those little side passages that doesnt lead anywhere.

someone should have went to aq40 and climbed up the big cheat pillar :<

29-12-2009, 04:22 PM
Aww, climbing karazhan from the outside wasnt good enough either? :(

Rigged tbh

30-12-2009, 04:33 AM
lol =) there were so many good ones it was hard to pick. I judged based on how cool the overall composition of the screenshot was and how easy it was for me to guess where the screeny was taken.

There was one that looked like it was taken in a developer area, which was extremely cool, but I wasn't sure how the person got there (ie whether it was legal) and it would have been a bit of a spoiler to post I think. that was my personal reasoning anyhoo.

30-12-2009, 04:51 AM
Can a 'Liam Clarke' and Jimmy please let me know your in-game character names so I can send you the entry money =) all the rest has been sent out. Thank you.

Video I used as a guide to the area. It's *sort of* legal. Thanks for the hosting the competition anyway, was good fun :D

Sorry about that by the way, I probably should have warned you ahead of time rather than just dropping it on you.
