    Default Rift gone WoW!

    "The worst tragedy of our times!" ~ The Washington Post

    Rift gone WoW is a Shatterbone dimension of WoW structures, now with the awesomeness of Rift! Actually, it's more of an approximation of those structures, because the first lesson I learned in all of this is: WoW's stylization does NOT translate well into Rift's. Due to this, I was forced to take some creative liberties here and there, so some of it may seem a bit... off.

    An approximation of an Alliance house. The outside doesn't really look much like it, but it was the inside layout I was mostly concerned with. It's small though, so no good screenshots of the interior. (Night Elf dancing on mailbox not included).

    Of course, you can't have WoW without Murlocs. (The chest is a reminder of all those lockboxes we Rogues had to use to level lockpicking.)

    A flight master, where a Dwarf was sure to tell you to keep your feet on the ground as you took off into the air. (Note: Rift has no flying mounts. Bring your own Gryphon.)

    An Alliance Keep. This one is (very loosely) based off of Westbrook Garrison in Elwynn Forest. The basements of these keeps are usually empty, so I used the basement of an Inn for reference instead.

    Not to be completely left out, the Horde have set up a tower to watch over the Alliance.

    Possible Forsaken activity? Only the undertaker knows for sure, and he isn't talking.

    Stop by for a visit if you're in the neighborhood!

    Ha! This is great, love the Horde tower and the flight master area - felt like I was back in Azeroth.

    Good job on this one!

    Loved it. Just in like in the real Alliance keeps, I got lost. The layout was spot on, so for an approximation, it was really, really good.

    The Horde tower was excellent, and the lockboxes made me break out in a cold sweat from the flashbacks of hours spent levelling my rogue's lockpicking.

    On a side note, I think I need to hire you to do my advertising for me, lol.

    Great job, sir!

    I figured this build would either be liked, or cause hundreds of fanbois from both games to choke to death on their Hot Pockets in a fit of rage. Fortunately it seems like the former so far, and I appreciate it.

    @Treble: I would have loved to add in some Gnomish architecture, but it's so quirky that I didn't think I'd be able to pull it off. Plus we don't have a whole lot of metal to work with, which is a major roadblock. I still have room, though, to add on in the future, should more items become available. If it's any consolation, the couple of hundred (literally) screenshots I took in WoW to build from were taken by a Gnome!

    @Feendish: The Keep was always the main part of the build, with everything else being added as I realized I would have plenty of item count left over. And I had the same reaction as you about the lockbox. Stealthing around all those areas trying to find them just to level up... ugh. As for me doing any advertising, I should warn you that any deals must conform to all 285 Ferengi Rules of Acquisition.

    @ Caelthas & ilex01: Dear god, no. No attunements, lol! I haven't been into Kara in ages, so I'd be completely lost trying to recreate it. Although Shadowfang Keep would be awesome to try and build, now that you mention it.... hmmm...

    Karazhan would sure be a major PITA to build... Kudos to anyone managing to pull it off

    As for SFK, well, that'd take time, but I see it as more possible x)

    Scarlet Monastery anyone?

    Know that should anyone build Kara you would have all my chars living there on a permanent basis!

    Fantastic work - you brought huge smiles to my face

    I had a wander around here yesterday, great job and a nice relief not being chased by a pack of angry Defias yelling "huh!" at me! Oh, and maybe no night elves... but there was briefly a high elf dancing on the mailbox *tries to not look guilty*
    New players feel free to use this code for free stuff!
