I made a wow classic style map of my home state!
By - ConservationOfWumbo
WTB google earth maps in this format
Tbh I'm kind of shocked they didn't do this around 2008 when WoW was massive.
I don't know about that. I'm sure Blizzard would very much welcome getting free advertisement directed to literally everyone on the western hemisphere.
It's not like they would be losing any money on it.
Except blizzard could get plenty of money from a multi billion dollar company by suing them for using their intellectual property, plus the free advertising. 'Murica
Tell that to literally everyone who has ever filed a copyright claim on YouTube ever.
The point remains that it is not as eazy as it sounds on paper.
I would actually pay a good bit of.money for this.
There is a website that can generate a watercolor map of any Google Maps location. [Here's Copenhagen as an example.](https://s3.amazonaws.com/images.m2i.stamen.com/20210622/watercolor_OGqiOK3jdzM.jpeg)
[http://maps.stamen.com/watercolor](http://maps.stamen.com/watercolor/#15/55.6833/12.5866) (The website isn't encrypted it at the moment it seems, FYI)
Would be a great April fools day
what's the dungeon/raid in Virginia?
Luray Caverns, The Great Dismal Swamp, and Old Rag.
There’s also a Caverns of Time style dungeon for the Founding of Jamestown.
The Pentagon in Arlington
Do the joint chiefs share a health pool or are they gauntlet-style
It's like the 4 horsemen fight in Naxrammas twice.
"I serve the defender of the Constitution!"
I hear Gen Mark A Milley drops an *Airstrike Radio* trinket. On use it let's you rain hellfire with a predator drone on those Alliance scum.
Take your pick we got the Norfolk naval station, the Newport News shipyard, the pentagon, some Cia training facilities, nasa plus some Dwarven mines way off in the West.
Plus after you attune to all the federal buildings you unlock the DC raid
Lmfao NNSY as a dungeon.
There would have to be piss bottle AoE landmines for sure
Don’t forget that abandoned nuclear missile silo in Newport News.
The Jefferson ave gauntlet is fuckin op
Ending with the aqueduct
The Capitol Building on the north side of the map.
Ah! I watched a pretty bad guild wipe on that one back in January.
The far Southwest zone of the map, in all the mountains beyond the map shown here. It would be a Dwarf infested dungeon with lots of moonshine and guns.
Caverns of Time where you just sit and watch Jefferson and Hamilton yell at each other.
Didn't they make a play or something about that?
It’s in Emporia. Pretty much all you do to defeat the end boss is not go over the speed limit whatsoever.
Someone of culture, I see.
the fucking tunnel between hampton and norfolk
HRBT. The MMBT raid has gotten a buff the last few times I've done it (Portsmouth to Williamsburg took 2.5 hours a couple weeks ago).
property taxes the raid
Survive one night on the streets of old town. Raid boss is Mayor Wright fleeing police.
Damn made the same joke before scrolling, respect lol here's an upvote
Monticello, with re-animated Thomas Jefferson as the (faux) final boss before Sally Hemings appears as the surprise final boss.
Scott's Addition in RVA. You need to best all the breweries with beer based bosses. Perhaps it is a retail raid for Brewmasters/Monks only.
Quantico could be a Paladin outpost.
Foggy Bottom. It’s an all rogue themed dungeon.
The world PvP on 95 from Alexandria to Richmond is pure hell.
And it's all mounted...and never-ending pvp like Alterac Valley
Some say it’s worse than an escort quest around shattrath
Especially in Fredericksburg
I’ve been ganked on 64 between Richmond and Williamsburg sooooo many times. Turn signals need a buff :/
Did you misspell Charlottesville? Greetings from Maryland!
Dang it, looks like I did!
It's the Azerothian spelling.
Really. Well, I'm from Azeroth, and I've never seen anyone spell it "Charlottsville"
Not in Kalimdor, no. It's an Eastern Kingdoms expression.
It’s how they spelled it in medieval times
What other states would y'all like to see? If this gets a lot of attention, I might have to do another!
all of them, obviously
The entire United States, obviously
the whole world !
Boy have I got the game for you
[I made World of Europe some time ago tho](https://www.reddit.com/r/wow/comments/95w1he/hello_what_do_you_think_about_this_map_of_europe/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share)
This deserves more upvotes!
MAKE THIS A SERIES
I would buy my state and my home state for sure!
Seriously this would be so damn cool. With the drop boxes and everything. Plus some Stormwind/Orgrimar style maps for major cities.
Michigan would be awesome!
Great Lake State! Get it!
Dark Portal located in detroit
It's okay, some of his best friends are orcs.
You can also enter the wild, fantastical otherworldly realm of Canada from Detroit. So it works in that way.
Would love NY, either city or state.
NYC would be wild
I could almost see NYC as a full expansion, Outland style with Manhattan as Shattrath or the like and the rest of the boroughs as autonomous regions, lol!
I think a a whole expansion where it's undermine but a full city scaled like walking around new York City in real life would be cool. Themed like the hearthstone mean streets of gadgetzan. Dungeons like a heist where your looting a chest in an underground casino. More bosses you skip more loot like DM north. Raiding a gangs hideout. Fractioning with a different trade prince's
If OP makes a New York one, our NYC guild will make it our discord banner.
OP, if you do NYC, separate it by boroughs please.
Also, if you need help with it hit me up, born and raised over 30 years.
I can help out too, been to a sbarro once
Also agree Texas!
Washington, Oregon, Ohio in that order.
But really, Washington/Oregon would be super cool with the forested west / desert east
Do CASCADIA! That’d be super cool.
[Hanford](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanford_Site) would be a great raid!
You could really abstract out the production facilities and tank farms to something like Gnomeregan, but otherwise there's nothing but shitty nuke tropes to go off of.
Ohio is like the Thousand Needles of the USA. As a michigander, in a huge state surrounded by gorgeous lakes on every side, the only way I can travel the country is to go through Ohio's 4 hours of 2 lane highways that are constantly under construction, looking out on a beautiful view of... fields...
Ohio is the Midwest's speed bump.
That's about half of Ohio.
The other half is beautiful foothills crossed with streams and rivers. Much more fun to drive. With significantly more opiates, though.
Yeah, clearly this guy has only driven down 75. Go to eastern Ohio and southeast Ohio and tell me it's only fields. There are definitely some boring drives in Ohio but there are some great scenic drives, for an essentially landlock state.
Well of course driving on opiates would be considerably more fun
This is awesome, would love to see one of CA!
Wisconsin! I would buy a print for sure
I second this
Florida - Nice and long, isolated by a lot of water but a unique shape.. Basically two roads run the entire length of the state. Literally no mountains, so that could be easy/boring.
What do you mean? There's already a Swamp of Sorrows. No need to have 2!
I've corpse-run Swamp of Sorrows at least a hundred times, and I can say from experience - Florida is worse.
Seconded! Plus you could put some of sea monsters in the ocean like wow world map has
I bet California would look like darkshore, same shape with ocean to the west and mountains to the east. Please do Cali!!
Tennessee would be awesome. It’s got a ton of lakes and rivers and it’s really flat in the west and pretty hilly and mountainous in the east. Major cities would be Memphis Chattanooga Nashville Knoxville. You can put Gatlinburg up in the mountains
I think a state with some geographic features would be cool. Like Colorado (mountains) or Minnesota (lakes)
Neveda is gonna be the Tanaris equivalent where Las Vegas is like Gadgetzan in a way.
There would definitely be a Boston Waterfront dungeon instance with the Harpoon brewery, the wharf hotel, and a harbor cruise as instances culminating in a New England Aquarium raid.
Add in Worcester as an Andorhal-type undead center, another dungeon for UMass Amherst, and Gillette and P-Town as a questing hubs
Miharvardt College of Mages is a quest hub
Work your way up the east coast!
West Virginia please!
Massachusetts? The cape is mostly murloc territory. Pretty sure the western part of the state is all Gnolls.
Putting in my vote for Texas!
Not a state but a country. Try out Switzerland :) I‘d loge to see that plus there is everything (apart from a desert) to draw
DC! I'd definitely buy a print.
They said states. ^/^S
Would make a good dungeon, no?
Florida or Pennsylvania!
colorado and texas!
Alabama and/or Mississippi. You can bunch em together like they originally came as the Mississippi territory.
New York would cool!
Shout out to us wow gamers in Alexandria! Sick map
+1 for fredericksburg
What fishing level do you need for the Chesapeake Bay?
Is Florida the Swamp of Sorrows?
Bog of Eternal Stench.
You remind me of the babe..
Dustwallow and Stranglethorn's sweaty love child.
Very cool. My home state too :).
DC in another zone :/
DC is functionally like Blackrock Mountain, a whole lot going on inside and connects the VA and MD zones
Does that make the White House BWL?
With deep run team running the the goblin capital of NYC
And before I forget Chicago is the city of the plains people (Tauren) DC is Undercity because many reasons, SF telsrassil/highborne capital, LA Silvermoon, Seattle/portland is gnomergan, Denver Ironforge, Somewhre in Texas Desert is Orgrimmar, and where the Fuck daddy musk is doing his new space town is exodar
And idk wtf storm wind is - let’s say boston, confusing to navigate stone/brick architecture, beautiful, and historic but kind of out dated
Orgrimmar seems more like New Mexico to me. Maybe southern Utah.
Haha my city Lynchburg is on the map. That’s awesome
Madison heights here
Post it in r/MapPorn :o
No Roanoke? 😥 Looks fucking amazing either way
My thought as well! Roanoke is bigger than Lynchburg too!
Beautiful! How did you do that?
The power of photoshop!
You're pretty good
If you do you one for New York I promise I will use it as a wallpaper on my pc :)
Now I want to play WoW using Earth map instead of Azeroth.
Arathi? Austria-Hungarian Empire
Kul Tiras? Hawaii
Pandaren? China (theme) or Australia (it’s a big island)
Scarlet Crusade? Italy/Vatican
Silithus? Sahara or maybe Burning Steppes
Feralas? California to Washington forests
Blasted Lands? New Mexico/Nevada
I'm gonna tell myself that little guard tower in the west is Harrisonburg.
Edit: Also, the disrespect to the VA part of the DELMARVA shore.
Yeah that was the intention! And the cave near it is Luray!
The Eastern Shore is content for a later expansion.
I had the same thought! Harrisonburg represent
Nice job putting a cave where Luray is
I take it you live in Hampton?
Hello from a Richmonder.
Actually made the map years ago when I was in college at CNU, so that player marker should probably move up to NOVA lol!
CNU grad as well! Class of 07 :)
Trible bless you!
Sweet so the walk from Richmond to Charlottesville is about 2.5 minutes.
You forgot the rest of us :(
Typical Virginia things
I'm actually legitimately angry that the part of the state I grew up in is cut off by a couple hundred miles.
Technically everything used to be Virginia. Y'all just renamed it so we forgot about you 😎
Virginia extends further west than West Virginia there's a good 200 miles that OP didn't include.
I’m not talking about WVA. The entire western half of the state is missing haha
I'm surprised no one else has mentioned this yet.
It’s so weird seeing wow players that live near you. MD squad.
This is seriously cool. Judging by the comments you could make some nice money doing commissions.
Not gonna lie, having maps like these of every state would really help me learn geography. Well done, OP!
Virginians rise up.
have something against us in SWVA? /s
this is really cool OP. makes me imagine what dungeons and raids would exist here.
Oh man this is really cool! do you do commission work? DM me if so I'd be interested
Newport news/west point eh? RIP to bridge tunnel traffic!
Hated 64, did they finish the HOV construction yet?
> did they finish the HOV construction yet
Cmon now have you ever been to Virginia? Construction is eternal.
95 should look like a dead scar of traffic lol
Love me some Richmond and NoVA!
Aww no Blacksburg!
Thats pretty sick. No Virginia Beach?
PLEASE do all of the states and sell prints. I didn't know I needed this until now.
Duuude! I want one of Oakland/California!
Greetings from Maryland!
This man out here in the Newpy Newp.
Lots of murlocs round here
he's my neighbor, apparently
Im imagining it like Hillsbrad/Alterac. Chesapeake Bay definitely has underwater murlocs like STV near Gromgol.
Would love to explore an actual Wow continent based on the 48 states. Big Pilotwings 64 feels.
That’s really cool!
Looks legit. Make it without the UI and bet lots of people would buy prints.
Wouldn’t it be so much better to have 2 land bridges instead of the hrbt And mmbt??? Fuck you norfolk traffic! Although the storm wind navy might be upset that they are now landlocked.
Greetings from Richmond. Looks amazing!
As a Richmonder, dope. But anything south east of Charlottesville should have dustwallow marsh/swamp of sorrows land.
I would like to commission a Puerto Rico maps in Classic style looks dope AF
