In celebration of the fact the Legion expansion will be out in a couple of weeks I decided to focus on some really interesting World of Warcraft creations. There’s a ton fan creations out there having to do with World of Warcraft, and choosing who to include was certainly difficult. I did make a conscious choice not to include any of the really big names. Not because I don’t think they are deserving or anything, but there are a lot of really awesome and interesting creations out there and I’d like to shine a light on them. So without further ado…

First up is Krista Bilota aka Toxicpanda, who has some really incredible art out there. The first image I found was the one of Kargath which really has a menacing feel to it. As a bonus you can watch the timelapse of it on YouTube. Then there’s the picture of Ultraxion which just makes me want to give him a hug and tell him everything will be alright. If you’d like to see more of Krista’s art you can find her on Deviant Art, Facebook, Tumblr, and her personal website.

Next up is a really cool Dark Portal cake by Lori Forder. I have to admit, despite loving to bake I never even considered the possibility of a WoW themed cake before. You can find more of her cool gaming related cakes on her Deviant Art Page.

Over the years I’ve seen some really cool Wow things made out of paper, which always blows my mind just as a concept. Because of this I wanted to make sure I included some of the cool things made by PMF. Definitely check out his Deviant Art page because there are a lot more than these three.

Lastly, but definitely not least, is Vea Novenario who has done some amazing Sylvanas cosplay. I mean there are a lot of Sylvanas cosplays out there, but the quality of hers is nothing short of amazing. You can find more of her work on Deviant Art, Twitter, and on her personal website.

Robin loves RPGs, MMOs, JRPGs, Action, and Adventure games... also puzzle games... and platformers... and exploration games... there are very few games she isn't interested in. When it comes to MMOs she focuses on WoW and GW2 but will pick-up other games as they catch her fancy. She's a habitual returner to FFXIV because that game is an all-around great MMO.
