Actually, what this really is is an awesome video. The creator says he’s a professional animator and this is his first real, personal, piece.
This is only the second personal creative work I’ve ever posted so I’m a bit nervous about it. The first being an image I painted years ago which…um… we don’t talk about. 🙂 It’s a bit nerve-wracking to post creative work for others to judge.
With over 500 comments , all along the lines of, “Dude, this is Awesome!” I don’t think he has anything to worry about.
This will probably spoil you for other WoW videos and you really need to see it in High Def, which is why I’m not posting the YouTube version here. Check it out, now:
Update: 8/24/12: Found it again, it was apparently accidentally deleted. See it here.
You get to see this in-game by completing a series of quests in and around Dragonblight. This is instanced, so once it’s over the world looks a bit different, locally, anyway. Much like the Death Knight starter area.
Afterwards you need to go to Orgrimmar to help Thrall get even.
Great fun. I’m enjoying Wrath alot. Only 77 (Rogue) so far, but with limited play time, well, that’s not too bad.
Nyhm is a character best know for making a series of well loved videos on YouTube. Most of these videos have hundreds, or thousands, of 5 star ratings from his fans, so check them out sometime. I’ve posted a few of Nyhm’s videos here, but just search his name on YouTube and you’ll find the others.
I managed to catch Nyhm in-between battles against the evil Gnome hordes and asked him a few questions, but note the edits, below:
edit: As you’ll see in the comments there is some, ahem, question, as to whether this fellow is actually the some one as the one who did the videos. I’ve also removed the links to the guides until I get this sorted out.
edit 2: I updated the discussion in a later post, but I should have linked to that post here. Here’s the post that clarifies everything and, yes, I should have linked to it sooner. And yes, I did step in it. My bad.
The commenters below are correct, there are two Nyhms. One does the videos (and it’s his video below) and the other Nyhm writes the guides. Their only connection is the same name and that they both play Warlocks. So as I mentioned in the other post, from here on out I’ll refer to them as Nyhm of the Videos and Nyhm of the Guides whenever I mention either of them.
The interview is from Nyhm of the Guides:
How long have you been playing WoW?
(Since) November of 2004
What kind of raiding and PvPing do you do?
I don’t do much raiding anymore, but I pvp all the time on alts, friends’ characters, and my arena team.
What keeps you playing after all this time?
PvP just never seems to get boring, and I have a lot of friends that play.
Is Nyhm your main character? Or mostly just the face for your productions? (And I did find him on the WoWarmory.)
Nyhm is my main but I don’t play on him anymore
What got you into making videos?
Nothing really, I just decided one day that I wanted to make WoW Videos.
Who’s on your production team? Or do they prefer to remain in the shadows?
My friends help me out a lot.
What equipment and software do you use to make the videos? (He makes videos related to his guides.)
In the category of "Bloody Cool WoW Videos" there's one that came out a couple of years ago.
I linked to it here, The Craft of War: Blind, but that link died. The new link is, where else?, to YouiTube.
Check it out, here.
