If you could smell one thing in WoW, what would it be?

Today I came across a rather interesting post from Bridgetogantry. He wonders what is the smell of World of Warcraft that you would like to smell? For its part, it is the fresh air of the Howling Fjord. On the food side, he would be tempted to try boar ribs in beer or iced tea from the deep south.

It’s up to you to think of a specific area like the Eversong Woods, or a more specific location like a kitchen in Pandaria. On the other hand, it is unlikely that the Undercity, with its Abominations, will be a particularly pleasant place for the nostrils. Or that Illidan smells like a flower after 10,000 years in prison.

Perhaps, as Justsoup explains, it’s Dun Morogh that interests you most? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments 😉

Dun Morogh. Ever since I was a kid and first played WoW, this has been my favorite area. Cold air in winter smells different. Imagine entering Anvilmar after spending an hour outside in the snow. The smell of the forges, the bar out back, the wooden furniture, the buckets of bolts, the cold stone floor and walls. The cave you pass through to leave Coldridge must smell bad! But you go down a hill and you’re at eye level (even for a dwarf or gnome!) with the tops of those huge pines down the winding hill. You follow the road past the firing range which must give off the smell of burnt gunpowder.

Eventually you get to Kharanos. The blacksmith building is somehow too warm, even though it’s eternal winter outside. The engineering shack in front of you and to your left smells of grease and burning ozone, and the one to your right smells of mechanostrider exhaust. And then you walk into the hostel and it’s like Christmas. Burning wood fire, sausages, cocoa, beer, bitters, stone cold, hot furs. Damn, I love Dun Morogh.
