Oribos The Eternal City Zone Preview

Recommended Posts

Oribos, the Eternal City, has been enabled for testing on Shadowlands Alpha, so we explored the main hub of the expansion in more detail.

Oribos is reminiscent of Shattrath with its circle floors and a whirl in the center that leads to the upper area, where the Arbiter dwells. The layout is similar to the one of Exodar with multiple intersecting halls.

Ring of Fates is the main area where you end up after porting into the city.

When you turn left while entering the city, there is this area with guards.

When you turn right, you will enter the Hall of Shapes, where you can find Profession trainers.

The other lower area located at the top is called Hall of Holding and you can find bankers and the weekly cache here.

There's also this area called The Idyllia with an inkeeper that leads to a smaller outside area.

Hall of Curiosities hosts many Broker vendors, including a barber, transmogrifier, Stable Master, and Void Storage NPC.

The Enclave is located in the lower left side of Oribos and you can find PvP vendors and areas themed after each Covenant.

Finally, if you go straight and enter the city, this is the inside area.

There is a transporter portal that will take you the Ring of Transference, the upper area of Oribos.

There are also some inactive transporter portals that will take you to areas that are currently unavailable for testing.

These include the portal area of Oribos, the lower area, and the upper area where the Arbiter is present.

      3D Artist Dronmo has created a jungle in Unreal Engine 4 inspired by Stranglethorn Vale.
      Here's a comparison of the Stranglethorn Vale in World of Warcraft and the recreated version of the zone in Unreal Engine 4 taken from ArtStation.

      Here's another comparison of the zone.

      The artist teamed up with his friend, a guitar virtuoso, who produced ambient relaxing music for the video.

      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas tweeted about why Blizzard ended up allowing Blood/Void Elves to have blue eyes, even though he said they were only intended for NPCs in the Zoltan Interview a while back.
      Earlier this week, we looked at new Blood Elf/Void Elf customization options coming in the Shadowlands expansion, and much to our surprise, they included new blue eye color options, allowing players to technically become High Elves in the game.

      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas replied in a tweet that they had a conversation with the team about new customization options and the recent blog is what they ended up with.
      (Source)
      I think @WatcherDev honestly knew for a while about the eye change options coming and still said it was NPCs only just to get a bit more of a laugh about it. I can say Id for sure do the same thing. Good that player agency is a priority again though.
      Honestly that was the plan at the time, but the game is vast, so specific questions often go unexamined while attention is elsewhere. After that interview, the team spun up a fresh conversation about BElf/VElf customization options, and the recent blog lays out where we ended up.

      Blizzard released a short story written by Madeleine Roux, author of the upcoming Shadows Rising novel, about a memorable night in which Regent Lord Lor'themar Theron and First Arcanist Thalyssra share stories, poetry, and arcwine.
      You can read the short story online or download it in PDF format.

      “War has come, war will come again, I am old enough to have watched my people rise and fall and rise once more, and I myself have withered like the winter tree before blossoming anew.”
      A new World of Warcraft short story is now available to read: A Moment in Verse!
      First Arcanist Thalyssra and Regent-Lord Lor'themar Theron set aside the troubles of their individual worlds to spend one beautiful evening in a contest of verse—and in each other's hearts.
      We’re excited to share this bright and charming new tale by Madeleine Roux (author of the upcoming Shadows Rising novel) with everyone, and we hope you enjoy a brief escape into the tranquility of Suramar. Read it now
      Stay safe and healthy, everyone!
