Two Very Different (and Awesome) Maps of Azeroth: 3D and Lego

We have two distinctly different fan maps of our probably favorite planet, with a more detailed 3D version for you more down to "earth" types, and then a LEGO one for the dreamers!

First off we have Kruithne and their very faithful recreation, as it was exported from the game and rendered, but you'll have to zoom in a lot to see the details (luckily there's gigantic versions to download as well). Unfortunately Nazjatar didn't make it and Darkmoon Island's location was just guessed at/put in below Booty Bay randomly, in case you're the details sort:

I recently made a guide on how to export and render an entire continent from WoW, and that got me wondering, could I render the entire world?

So I did. At over 450,000,000+ triangles with every model at full-resolution (no texture down-scaling or mesh reduction), here it is, complete with buildings, cities and more.

If you're interested, I post a lot of guides about various WoW 3D stuff with scripts, add-ons and more over on my Patreon.

North-East of Broken Isles would be Exile's Reach, and South-West of Booty Bay is Darkmoon Island.

I had some issues with Nazjatar that I didn’t want to invest the time to fix, so it got axed at the last minute unfortunately.

Correct, however in-game the burnt version of Teldrassil is just a giant 2D picture (billboard), so including it didn’t look right.

And now the other, slightly more abstract map, by sn4kech4rmer:

"LEGO released a World Map set, but I attempted to do a different world map."

I tried to build a map of Azeroth based off the post-Shattering map in Chronicle, but I'm not creative enough to know what to do with all the empty space, so I ended up taking it apart and building the actual World Map. Thought you guys would appreciate it anyway!


So, which of the two would you put on your wall?
