Skywall Raid Loading Screen
A new Cataclysm area which was released a bit later, when the latest build came, is Uldum.
The area designed for players above level 83 is located south of Tanaris desert and it is predominately desert, with a river crossing through it and with a big delta. It is something similar to an Egyptian landscape if you ask me... As I knew before, you had to complete the Deepholm to be able to start with this area, but it seems like I was wrong since I still had some uncompleted quests in Deepholm.
The area is filled with Titan-made buildings and devices, devices which are more or less broken and in some cases you'll help fixing them. All players, who follow the quest line, will enter Uldum with an expedition caravan. Your caravan will be ambushed and you'll have to free yourself and along with you you'll free a Prince as well. I wont spoil you the fun of this event but you really have to save that Prince if you want to continue questing in there. Basically you have to help Ramkahen population and also help out Harrison Jones on his adventure.
There is nothing new now about the quests after we saw Deepholm, Mount Hyjal and Vashj'ir (we will make a full review of that area soon). Quests here are pretty much linear but you have to travel longer distances and the quest givers are spread all around the place. Like we did when we spoke about other areas we wont start with quests bugs and stuff like that since this is still Beta and everything will be fixed in the end.
Above this desert, up into the clouds (that's very high! trust me) we can find a bunch of suspended towers where you can enter Skywall, the elemental plane of air, a new raid instance and Vortex Pinnacle, a new 81-85 dungeon. Also, this time on the ground, inside a huge pyramid, there is the entrance to Halls of Origination, an 85 level dungeon.
Now, to bring something new to our Exploration episodes, we decided to make a fly-through video of this area. I think it is better than a bunch of screenshots.
Tell us your opinions about Uldum. Is there something you saw in the video and have no idea what that is?
