    Man, I really appreciate something Blizzard did for quest rewards; in general, all the gear you get from questing in a zone matches.

    Admittedly, a couple of those pieces came shortly after leaving... I think it was Arathi. Or it was Wetlands maybe. I dunno. But all that gear came in a zone's worth pretty much and it all looks great together.

    On a semi-related note, how the fuck do I change the quality the game saves screens at? >.<

    That actually looks like a really neat set.

    I should really try out the new 1-60 stuff.

    None of the names match either is the best part. "Tablet-Bearer's Pauldrons," "Swamp Gas Gauntlets" - those are both in that picture up there. :P

    The paladin charger is such a weird mount. It's kinda fat for a horse. O_o

    In regards to changing screenshot quality. It appears that you can save the screenshots in either .JPG or .TGA. Personally, I think setting it to .PNG would be better.
    As of 2.1.0 WoW will default to saving your screenshots as .jpg, i.e. JPEG format. This will cut down file size but it will also destroy some detail due to JPG being a lossy format. People who want to change the format back to TARGA (TGA) will need to use the following command:

    /console screenshotFormat tga

    You may also set the format to JPEG but change the quality (decreasing compression and increasing size) with the following commands:

    /console screenshotFormat jpg
    /console screenshotQuality 10

    You can also look for and edit (or add) the 2 lines in config.wtf:

    SET screenshotFormat "f"
    SET screenshotQuality "q"

    Is there a chance you could provide further information on all the specific gear you've equipped on your Paladin though, Henroid? It does look quite nice. I think I'll venture back to those specific zones once I'm done adventuring in Northrend.

    I don't remember many specifics, but the gloves came from Duskwallow and not Arathi (even though it matches).

    Generally, items that match have a glow around the picture of the item in the icon (like the belt icon has a blue glow, as does the shoulders, etc). Just now in Andorhol I picked up a couple new pieces of mail that are purple on the texture (looks neat) but the icons color them with a green glow. So that's the easiest way to tell. Otherwise just keep an eye out.

    Oh and let me see if I remember... Westfall, the mail armor is green colored, in Redridge it's dark blue (to the point of not looking good), and I think Duskwood is brown.

    #1 graphical thing Blizz needs to work on: capes/cloaks.

    Also, shields. Why do they float a foot away from my back? Why?!

    Howabout the texture stretching on vertical terrain? The hillsides in the malestrom were terrible

    I think tabards take priority over capes / cloaks. They already took a step with the latter; they cut out all those small back-cover things. Everything is at least a waist-length cape now.

    Tabards are like regular shirt, but they have hanging bits at the front and back. There shouldn't be anything in the underarm area. Also, there's no texture underneath if you don't have a belt on. So the texture breaks. Also, if you wear robes, tabards are a massive failure.

    Is there anything sweeter than ninja herbing the opposing faction with druid swift flight form?

    I say no.

    Funny thing I noticed today while leveling an alt:

    They bumped up the guards and such to 85 to stop gankers. This seems to have been applied all over the place.

    Including the Argent Crusade base in the SE corner of Icecrown, just outside Dalaran.

    So that series of phased quests you do in the area is now hilarious because the guards are 85 and basically one shot any scourge mobs that come anywhere near them. This means the zone formerly teaming with mobs is now completely empty. I had to camp the mob spawn points and tag them before the guards roflstomped them. Thankfully, you still get credit. :)

    Funny shit though.

    In patch notes they said they reduced the level of Shatari guards in the Bone Wastes to avoid the same problem, but it was even worse there since the mobs were 65 or something.

    I ran into that in Icecrown too, it was hilarious.

    Is the difference of level 85 to previous levels really that huge?

    It should be noted that most of the quest reward cloaks you get leveling 80-85 are the short ugly half-cape models.
