Alpha First Look: The Black Shroud

Community Team Rep Triairy writes:

We're pleased to present "The Black Shroud," our third entry in the Alpha First Look video series!

In this video, we take look at both the Central and North Shroud areas that are housed within the Black Shroud, the vast forest that includes the city-state of Gridania. The beautiful landscapes of the Black Shroud include lush, sweeping vistas with exciting landmarks peppered throughout. On this guided tour through the Shroud, adventurers will visit an aetheryte camp, where they'll spot a mysterious balloon floating above an adjacent building, and take in a gorgeous view of a nearby waterfall and the surrounding foliage.

The video also showcases the fact that in A Realm Reborn the map will gradually reveal itself as your character reaches new locations.

I agree although I would say that as someone who chose Gridania as his home town and was severely disappointed in both the design and overall feel of it (and the surround areas) this video makes a huge difference.

Edit: The music is great! I personally didnt care for it before, though I did like some of the other themes in the game. Ul'dah was by far my least favorite, I first head it while doing the hours of downloading updates and thought it was bad waiting music, little did I know it was the theme for the busiest town in the game. Hence I did play alot of the game with the music turned off. The theme in this video really sets the tone right.
