Some time ago, Pantheon has posted some slides for some of his biome types in production that caught my attention. Obviously the mockups are sophisticated and a tremendous amount of effort goes into the production of each zone in an MMO. But still there are some that I like better than others.
For example in Lord of the rings online, I’m usually a Shire and Bree fangirl, but when I got to South Ithilien I literally put on my experience-stopping jewel because the flowery wilderness of this area of Gondor was so lush and pretty I knew I was had to do all the quest instead of just passing through it on my way to Osgiliath Ruins. I’m also a big fan of huge sprawling cities that make me feel small Guild Wars 2’s New Kaineng. I’m less of a fan of “disappointed burning waste” zones.
