The Ashran screen shots were frankly a huge pain. To get backgrounds, I had to run into the PTR Ashran which isn’t instanced (meaning you don’t transfer to a battleground server, it’s just empty). PTR realms aren’t judiciously tuned so for some reason it kept snowing in Ashran. I also got the idea for “fan service” in the form of a “Hero Panels”. Hero Panels were a shout out to those members of the guild (that I could fit) into an interesting, heroic, or class-specific action. With over 1000 toons in the guild, I think we got close to 40 or 50 players’ toons in the novel.
