Vaneeesa has asked the iRez authors to “share 6 of their favorite, must see, places in virtual space.”
This is the World of Warcraft version.
People travel for different reasons, so here are six locations that might appeal to a broad range of virtual tourists.
- Spectacular Nature – Howling fjord
- City Break – Dalaran
- Leisure and Spa – Gallywix Pleasure Palace
- Horror and Mystery
- Humanitarian Aid Work
- History Tour
They will be posted in a series of six parts.
Leisure and Spa – Gallywix Pleasure Palace
- Recommended level: Any
- Expansion Pack: Trial account
Gallywix Pleasure Palace is the privately built luxury location for the rich Trade Prince Gallywix. Gallywix is a goblin lead figure, however he is infamous for being extremely greedy and betraying his own people. Currently Gallywix is nowhere to be found, which probably also is the reason to why this place is open to the public.
Beneath, a picture shows the ongoing construction of this location with a giant statue of Gallywix’ head.
The place is entirely safe for Horde players, but you’ll need someone to summon you up there unless you have a flying mount yourself – that means without friends to help you, you’ll need to be level 60.
The Pleasure Palace features a swimming pool with tropical bar area, a grenade golf course, suitable accommodation, and a sauna. The location is popular for guild gatherings and other casual affairs. If you are interested in a classic vacation of relaxation in this world of war, this would be your destination.
The existence of a place like this is interesting for several reasons.
First off it plays no role for player progression, so the purpose of this location has been heavily discussed. It’s unusual to find such significant areas without any quests leading you here, explaining to you what’s going on.
Furthermore, it’s located in a level 10-20 zone, yet players leveling there can not reach the palace. This has led people to call it an Easter egg, a so-called hidden treat for explorers. It’s also possible that this place will contain quests or similar in a future patch, or perhaps it’s a recognition that guilds need venues for gathering and that it’s a fun scene catering to role players.
Gallywix Pleasure Palace can be seen as the only greenish dot mid-west on the map of Azshara underneath.
