Minipost: Shattrath Orphanage's Racial Cribs


A friend of mine just starting playing WoW again and is really into pet battling, so I took Salandria around on her annual Outlands tour to pick up another Willy minipet for him.

While I was in Shattrath, I poked around inside the orphanage and noticed something kind of cool. I'm sure many of you already knew this, but I had no idea the cribs inside the orphanage were thematically different for every race!

We've got a typical human crib.


Night elves use cribs made of Teldrassil's purplish wood, it seems.


Orc cribs are HUGE and spikey, appropriately enough.


A gear-themed gnome crib.


A simple woven basket for tauren.


Trolls use the same spiked crib as orcs.


And my personal favorite, the dwarf crib, all heavy metal and iron and rivets. It's HUGE, too!


I'm sure these racially-themed cribs have been here forever, but I guess I had never really walked inside and looked around before! Seems like WoW always has something new and interesting to discover.

    I was tooling around Ironforge on starter edition, and Moira's son is in a dorf crib by her throne in the throne room.
