-- Blizzard is making it easier than ever to capture your Night Elf's duckface, thanks to a new selfie camera coming to World of Warcraft. Patch 6.1, which recently rolled out to WoW's public test realms, adds the S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera, a new toy designed to make picture-taking a bit more self-centered. wow gold eu for sale with 8% discount code: GOLD4FANS at Gold4fans.com!
World of Warcraft players can snag the S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera after completing a new, level 100 mission called Field Photography. The new toy lets players turn the camera on themselves and snap a selfie, which is saved to their screenshots folder. Player's characters will even emote while the camera is trained on them to capture photos of smiles, alluring kissy faces and more.
Players can then upgrade the camera to the S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera Mk. II by tackling another mission: Lens Some Hands. That item upgrade enables a trio of filters: sketch, black and white and death.
WoW's new selfies do appear to have something of a clipping issue, as the player's camera arm seems to be problematic. Warcraft's version of the selfie stick can't be far behind.
Patch 6.1 also added Twitter integration, letting players send tweets about items they've looted, achievements and screenshots, like selfies of your improved Blood Elf, which just got the new characters models introduced in Warlords of Draenor.
Maybe you love them. Maybe you loathe them. Maybe you're taking one right now. Selfies are everywhere, because we are painfully vain creatures. And now, finally-after you begged, pleaded, groveled, and probably didn't ask for it at all-they're coming to World of Warcraft.
People have begun discovering an item called the S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera on WoW's public test realms for patch 6.1. You get it from a rare level 100 garrison mission called Field Photography, which simply involves tossing followers out in the cold for four hours, no special traits required. So basically, it's cake.
Here's how it works, according to WoW Insider:
"The interface for the camera is really easy to use-simply click the item to use it, and your camera will automatically turn around to face you. You can swivel the angle to whatever you feel is most pleasing, and press 1 to snap a photo. No need to alt-z the frame out of the picture first, the camera automatically does it for you, snapping the screenshot and putting it in your screenshots folder. As the camera faces your character, they'll make a host of suitably emotive faces, so you don't have to worry about smiling for the camera."
And yes, one of those is duckface.3
There's also a bonus mission you can find that will reward you with an upgrade kit for the S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera MkII. It's got filters!
It's all rather silly, of course, but that's modern-day Warcraft for you. You don't get the melodramatic swords and sorcery (and CGI) without a mashed potato volcano explosion of pop culture absurdity. I think it's fun, though-for the most part. I am worried that they're gonna integrate this with WoW's upcoming Twitter functionality, which is also set to debut in patch 6.1. I'm sure your orcs, gnomes, and cow people are beautiful, but I don't want my Twitter feed to be overrun by a hundred-thousand fantasy cartoon person selfies. Sorry. I don't want to grump all over anyone's parade, but... yeah, that's probably what I'm gonna end up doing.
Below are comments from wow gamers:
After doing that face in the mirror, yes. Gosh, why do people make that face? It hollows out the cheeks in the most horrible way, like you're trying to imitate a vacuum cleaner or something. -

this is awesome! i'm so glad blizzard is making it easy for me not to play world of warcraft... - jaredb_1987
That's really interesting ... RuneScape just got a "Selfie" camera angle for the Orb of Oculus item that allows you to take screenshots. - jhuynh
This whole genre borrows from each other. For all we know, RuneScape stole this idea from a conversation with a WoW developer and just implemented it faster. It's a fun idea. Part of what makes the MMO genre awesome is it doesn't take itself too seriously and adds items like this one. Thumbs up. - veneretio
This is actually a great idea! I always enjoy looking at players screenshots. I can't wait to see what people do with this. - Rayserbeamz
I'm almost ashamed to admit this sounds like a great feature and I hope more MMOs implement it. - Nagnu
I still have a folder somewhere of my friend and me adventuring through Azeroth. We haven't played for years, but those pics still bring back fond memories. - joechip123
It worked fantastically in GTAV. My friend and I spent our first few hours in the online mode dressing our girls up and taking selfies at different landmarks. I'm sure it'll be the same for people in WoW. - Manwards
Are there selfie sticks so when can use it to beat to death people that take selfies with it? - AmiralPatate
Shouldn't this be BElfies for the Horde and NElfies for the Alliance? I'll get my coat. - Jamie Pollock
And people don't understand why the old school players think WoW is going casual. - average_gatsby
People have actually been saying it since Vanilla. I remember a few reviews being quite disparaging of WoW's "casual" stance. It actually put me off playing until TBC, when I decided to see what all the fuss was about! - Vicasher
We understand. We just don't care. WoW is the casual version of Everquest. MMO's die or go F2P if they don't appeal to the masses. - rob.ricardo
Whether you like the additions or not....this is why WoW is still King. Their Devs continue to add more features to the game. Never mind 10 years worth of content. New MMOs just can't match the amount of seen and unseen features WoW has when they release. - Ortho6600
