Technologia: A first look at Silvermoon and the Blood Elves

One of the best reasons for experienced World of Warcraft players to buy the Burning Crusade expansion pack is the introduction of a new race --- they call themselves Blood Elves. For those of us playing mostly on the Horde side of things, these are the first attractive characters we have been able to play. That is unless of course you have a thing for the Undead.

Not wanting to miss an in-game experience I created a Blood Elf hunter named Kenirk. Here are just some of the sights you will see in and around the new capitol city of Silvermoon.

One of the biggest problems I had as a Blood Elf Paladin (the new class of the new race)is that the mailboxes look like streetlights. Once I learned that, they are, as in every other city in WoW with an Inn, everywhere.


If you haven't checked out the Dranei... It's a must do. I didn't realize that I would be so in love with the new race. It has actually made me leave my main at lvl 54 and really start playing a new toon... What an amazing game!
