Many More Animated Wallpapers, Featuring Org and SW, Illidan, Deathwing, Bolvar and More Many More Animated Wallpapers, Featuring Org and SW, Illidan, Deathwing, Bolvar and More We covered a few animated wallpapers for Steam's Wallpaper Engine some days ago and one of the authors of those, Reika9944, created two more - one for Orgrimmar and one for Stormwind. But, since there are plenty of others out there, I dug around a little and found some other, older highlights as well. You can find links to the Wallpaper Engine files themselves in most of the threads below, so let's get started. If the animations aren't playing, just click on the images twice.

However, we don't yet know what they're saying as the audio and text parts have not been added yet, but we have a somewhat solid idea/theory of what's going on.
