Let's see if we can find look-alike areas for WoW zones!

Here's Stonetalon and maybe 1k Needles.

Doesn't look like the image posted correctly...?

Easy one, the Sahara is Tanaris irl.

The Scarab Gong looms ominously before you. Steel yourself, adventurer; for once the Scarab Gong is rung, the gates of Ahn'Qiraj will be opened.

I think certain parts of Northern Ontario really look like Mulgore, like the picture above. I'm sure many places in North America could look like Mulgore, but from my own experiences Northern Ontario is a sure winner with the mountains, lakes, and different species of trees.

Yeah, wow that looks like what Thunder Bluff would be irl. That's pretty neat to see that in an actual picture.

Definitely. This is a great one. Just needs some extremely slow and buggy lifts/elevators.

Tanaris has a little lighter colored sand. These would fit too. Also the Salt Flats!

I think my obsession with this place will become more apparent in the future, but... once again, I couldn't help myself. *Monastic chanting begins to play in the background* I present to you: The Vatican! or is that the Scarlet Monastery? :eek:

@Selexin Yeah! I don't know a time frame as it was just the first few results from Google, though I can't imagine it's going to look much different.

This album was posted to the Classic WoW subreddit. Think it covers the majority of zones:

Honestly I could probably find an example of just about everything here.

I have nothing fancy to add here, but if you've never played Binary Domain, you should.
