Aka Ironyca Stood in the Fire – gaming blog
When I was out leveling Joy my nerfed hunter, I randomly ran into this hollow tree trunk in Hillsbrad Foothills.
This is not a particularly noteworthy event, but if you click the above picture larger, you can see more clearly a skeleton sitting on the inside.
Given the vast amount of skeletons you can find around Azeroth and Outland, they are not exactly rare either, but this one had a doll sitting next to it, something which I find a little creepy. I couldn’t see if it was an adult or a child, but after pondering it, it’s not so much the skeleton, but rather the doll which is sitting on its lap, that makes it look eerie to me.
I would probably have been equally spooked if it had just been this voodoo-like doll with crossed eyes sitting alone in the tree trunk, staring at me as I passed by on the road.
The location is not far above Tarren Mill. It’s a little East of the path going North towards the Ruins of Alterac.
I leveled through the zone and never got a quest linking to this site, so perhaps we are dealing with another small and hidden detail, all of which makes the world seem less uniform and more random.
In case you get the thrills like me over both large and small exploration discoveries, you may enjoy the below articles.
LOL I love this – I have a weakness for things like that, the little secrets and small gems in WoW that most people don’t notice. Your page is a bit of a goldmine in that respect. :)
I remember when I found that grave spot in Hillsbrad Foothills, the one dedicated to a developer’s friend (?) I think it was….these discoveries make the world feel so much more alive, don’t they.
I missed this part of WoW for Cataclysm a little, so I was happy to read through your dedicated section. Keep that sharp eye of yours!
I love finding stuff like this one, even simple things like this skeleton and doll makes me stop and ponder for a moment and I like that.
I’m glad you enjoyed the Cataclysm article, I spent a lot of time updating it in the beginning based on the comments I was getting, but I think it captures the biggest hidden sights of Cataclysm as it is right now.
