- Ok, I just got myself a copy of The Art of World of Warcraft. The page with the sea creature concept art does not have a name. In addition, the untextured model that is currently part of WoW is part of Designer Island, so it does not have a name either. I wonder where the original author got "Dragon Isles" from. --Voidvector 00:58, 31 December 2006 (EST)
- The concept art is located in the game's MPQ files as it is used in the original WoW credits. "Dragon Isles" is part of the image's file name. Unfortunately with the way they've rearranged the MPQ files lately I can't find where they've moved the image to so I don't exactly have any proof. --ArrantPrac 03:53, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
Here's an idea, what if "Dragon Isles" doesn't refer to an island with dragons on it, but instead refers to a dragon the size of an island? The pictured beast with the palace is more like a nautilus or kraken, (maybe a result of Naga magic on dragons?) but it's an idea. Cryptomancer 21:23, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
The giant sea fossil is most likely the remains of an old god or servant of the old gods with a naga palace built on top of it perhaps the naga remade the palace of azshara after it sank to the sea floor in the sundering?--Vrall 02:34, 16 April 2008 (UTC)
In World Of Warcraft?
I was installing "World of warcraft" (Classic). Suddenly, in the installing progress bar a file called "Dragon Isles" was Installing... I searched with WOW MODEL VIEWER", "WOW MAP VIEWER" and lots of programs this file...But i can´t found something else...
Is this island in World Of Warcraft? Nobody Knows...
Hidden in Old World Files
During Vanilla Wow, there was a program called WowMapView.exe.. I'm not sure if its still around or even works today.. but back then it let you fly around the wow zones based on the game files. Of course there would be no mobs or game content.. it just let you view the land. You could also see the developer test islands. The giant shelled creature/city was actually in development at one point however never finished or textured. the concept looked very similar to Nespirah in Shimmering Expanse. Maybe one day we'll see it in game. There are some images of this here http://lostwow.com/DesignersIsland.shtml
