Blaugust Day 30 ~ castles

well, not all of them are castles as such, but castles is a better title than castles and some really big buildings that are not quite castles but are really big and impressive…

1 Amon Sûl, Lotro.  I love this screenshot, it is really hard to get an overall shot but I found a spot on a ridge opposite.

2 Therinfall Redoubt, Dragon Age Inquisition.  I used the DAI cinematic tools to get this shot, and it is really impressive and a shame it is instanced and only available if you choose to work with the templars.


3 Solitude, Skyrim.  Ok not quite a castle but it is a fortified town and palace so close enough I think.  Again I used a tool for a free camera.


4 Elden Root, ESO.  Its probably the Bosmer equivalent of a castle.  A huge, huge tree which has been shaped into an enormous living and to be lived in structure.  The Bosmer King resides here so I guess that makes it a kind of castle?


5 Divinity’s Reach, GW2.  This looks like something out of a fairy tale, gorgeous!




  1. I had to do a double take on the first screenshot before I read the description. Because of the distance I thought it was some kind of miniature set! A very cool and detailed miniature set, mind you! 🙂

    The second one is also pretty cool too in a kind of ominous and epic mixture.

    And of course all the other screenshots are cool too! 🙂

  2. Gorgeous shot of Weathertop! I have a special place in my heart for the Lone-lands, so that shot alone makes this post worth a like.

    But Elden Root? Come on, I’m sure we’ve all had enough of the tree-hugging Dominion-side. Why not the exterior of the Crypt of Hearts?

      1. Nah the marshes one is easy, it’s just East of Bree in one of the almost-newb areas (Midgewater). But if you get there at the right time/right weather, you can get some lovely shots. Weathertop isn’t as clear, but the foreground makes up for it a bit.
