A Day in the field/ And a revisit to Lion’s Arch

Adaliind started her day off as she always does.  She was prepared to go out and farm for minerals and just enjoy the beautiful day and adventures that may await her.  She started off in the Shiverpeaks Mountains in Lornar’s Pass.  She was near the Winterthaw trading post when she came across some Destroyers.  After taking care  of them she ventured further out and came across a tribe of Ettis.  Once again they were not friendly and deadly matters had to be initiated.   Lastly, she decided to visit her favorite place, Lion’s Arch.  She was one of the hero’s that had taken Scarlet down, so she was intrigued to go visit the city and see how it all fared out.  As she visited she kept hearing whispers of an Elder Dragon that might have awoken during Scarlet’s drilling in the bottom of the sea.  Adaliind’s hair raised up on the back of her neck, an Elder Dragon, a worthy opponent is all she could envision.  Only time would tell if this rumor was true.  But if it was, it was a battle she definitely would look forward to with great anticipation!

Several of the memorials seen around the city.  This one is actually thanking some of the heroes of Lion’s 

Arch for their courage and valor in defending the city.  Adaliind was amazed to find her name on the board.

Much damage and months of work it will take to rebuild Lion’s Arch

Many citizens left behind are trying to find places where they can temporarily call home.

Lionguard is trying to maintain peace and keep looters away from peoples belongings left in the rubble.

Much of the water is filled with debris, but it was nice to find this Quaggan home still intact.

Hopefully its owners will return soon. The sea is also showing signs of returning life.  Crabs, Shrimps,

schools of fish, Salmon and jellyfish are among some of the creatures seen so far.

And yet another memorial for those souls that were lost during this battle.

Lion’s Arch

I figured since the event with Lion’s Arch is coming to a close, I would take the time to grab some pictures of the city.  Some areas I could not get to since they were guarded by mobs, but I did get some good shots anyway.  These were all taken by Lady Survonna as she journeyed through the destruction of Lion’s Arch.
