The Colorful 'World of Warcraft'

The Colorful 'World of Warcraft'


World of Warcraft, the uber-popular 'massively multiplayer online role-playing game', has been mesmerizing people since its release in 2004, maybe even longer: the Warcraft world has been around since 1994. With over 12 million users reported in October 2010, and with those users logging an amount of hours of game play that would frighten and intrigue any social scientist, we're beginning to think there is more going on than just a series of never-ending quests, maybe people are there simply to enjoy and take in the scenery of the virtual landscapes and each zone's unique color palette.

So, recommended by one of our members who "especially likes the pastels of "Skywall", as well as the teal and tan of "Thousand Needles""--and supported by many, I suspect, we're exploring the colorful world of the latest expansion, Cataclysm, for inspiration. If you're looking for more, check out where all these screenshots came from, MMO Champion or on WoW wiki.

Post your World of Warcraft inspired palettes, colors and patterns in the comments.

Coloring In Your Personality: What's Your Color DNA?


Brought up here in the COLOURlovers forum, the PersonalDNA site allows you to decode your personality into a color palette. Who wants to make buttons? If we were to all wear our personal color codes just think how quickly we could recognize like minded people. Or maybe some things are better left personal.

PersonalDNA is "an innovative new personality test that combines thorough scientific analysis with novel questions and response techniques. The result is a fun test that provides accurate, detailed feedback. Are you an "attentive thinker"? A "free-wheeling artist"? Find out which one of our 256 personality types matches you, and get details that go beyond those categories, plus suggestions on how to be different—no two results are alike. Then compare your results to your friends' personalities, and see how well you know each other with our psych you/psych me feature."

Find out your color DNA. Are you a____?
