It's always nice to have the latest guide book, and that's why I bought this after installing the Lich King. Enough of the original game area had changed with this latest expansion that I thought it was time for a new map book. I was disappointed to see that not even the new harbor area of Stormwind was shown in the book. Additions like that in the game were the primary reason for my buying. I would hesitate to upgrade any of my books in the future, just because they were updated editions, until I have talked with other people to see whether there is really any new additions to the old content.

First, I really need to say that I'm a newbie to the game. I've only been playing WoW for about a month now, so I still have a lot to learn. I bought this book because I was tired of trying to find places on the in-game maps and the ones in the BradyGames Battle Chest guides.

The region maps in the book are fairly blurry, like they increased the size beyond the original and lost some picture quality along with it. It is used with a grid system like real maps are, which can or can't be helpful. While it does say, for example, that a Weapons merchant in Thunder Bluff is at D-6, there is no indication on the map as to where exactly they are within that square. You just have to run around that general area and see if you can find them.

However, that is only the case with regions. Smaller towns and camps have smaller, somewhat more detailed maps further back in the book. The images are a little more clear and look a lot like what the developers may have used to show themselves where everything is. Instead of the grid-system, there is a number put on the map. So if you're looking for Manrik in the Crossroads, you just look for the number 12 on the smaller map.

There is an index in the back where you can look up any character name you want, including rare spawns, and it will tell you the location(s) and grid mark, sometimes even a clue as to the exact location (i.e. "behind house")

It also details where all the flight points are on a world map, as well as detailed paths of boats and zeppelins. The world map also provides locations of Instances. The class and profession trainers are also listed, so you don't need to know the name to look them up, just find what you want and it will tell you the name and location of who you need.

I can't remember reading so much whining and nit-pic for the most inconsequential and lame reasons. One guy in here is complaining that many maps are printed on 2 pages and span across the binding and complains that they can't be "cut out".

Please tell me. What kind of rational, thinking person purchases a beautiful hardcover reference book to cut it up??

Many of the complaints I'm reading are that this book could be "so much better".

The bottom line is . . . if you play World of Warcraft you know this game is absolutely huge. It is breathtaking and often staggering in it's expanse and enormity. This game will always be changing . . . maps change, creatures change, anything can be rehashed and redeveloped in the game at any time.

This is a reference book.

Doctors don't have just one book. Teachers, lawyers, students and professional people who require a reference book do not have just one . . . why? Things change. Life changes. We need many books.

This is just one, very excellent, very thorough and very well-designed and constructed reference book for the game of World of Warcraft. I have this one and "Dungeon Companion" and yes . . . I want, and will purchase more to have on-hand for reading and making references to while I journey through the game.

This is a tremendous reference book and I highly recommend it. I also recommend, that for the scope of this game . . . you will find you need more than one guide at your fingertips . . . and indeed . . . this is an invaluable one to have!

If you're into the game . . . buy it!

Given the dramatic changes to the vanilla WoW terrain in the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm expansion, this book serves as a lovely slice of nostalgia for all those old time players who have been there since Day 1. In many ways, I am sad to see Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms, that I have roamed about in for so many years, changed forever. Now, with the help of the maps (taken from in-game) and towns (hand-drawn cartography) presented in such ever-lasting detail in this beautiful atlas, I'll always be able to remember the way it was. Pick it up while you can!

I haven't found the difference between the "2nd Edition," and the original, I suspect that it is a 2nd Printing. It is an excelent addition to a gamer's library, as WoW is a massive game, and u can't remember everything you encounter, or need to find to do a "Quest." I have been playing for several years, and still find myself referring to this atlas.

The book is really quite useful when you are in new lands. I think the city maps could have been way more detailed. And places like the Undercity have several levels. A really good map of that would be nice. I guess part of the fun is getting lost and learning your way around. All in all, I am glad I bought the atlas.
