4.0 out of 5 stars Good. Could have been better
(only had the book 20 minutes - first reaction)
What it does is done well, the print is clear and the maps are nice.
The full index of NPC locations is useful, as is the quick list of class and profession trainers.
My only real criticism is that there are no maps for instance dungeons, which would have made it much more useful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely to look at but not an essential purchase
Firstly I have to say this book looks lovely and feels more like a "coffee table" book than a game guide. Although it does a good job of telling you where a lot of monsters and NPC's are, it only really duplicates what is in the Strategy guide.
This is a little more detailed on town maps and vendor details, whereas the strategy guide gives you all the...

4.0 out of 5 stars A most helpful book, 4 Nov 2005
This review is from: World of Warcraft® Atlas (Brady Games - World of Warcraft) (Hardcover)
This book is great, the maps are very helpful as is the NPC placements listed for each area. I shall definatly find this helpful.
My only complaints are the fact that no dungeons are listed, the book would have been better of waiting until after the release of Burning Crusade and its awkward to tell which vendors are horde or alliance on the main map pages.

This is a little more detailed on town maps and vendor details, whereas the strategy guide gives you all the NPC's that give you quests and their approximate locations.
Perhaps worth getting if you want all the information you can hoover up, but personally I feel if you already have the strategy guide then I probably wouldn't bother with this as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very usefull, 29 July 2007
By

This review is from: World of Warcraft® Atlas (Brady Games - World of Warcraft) (Hardcover)
This is a great book if you take questing seriously. Someone compared the Wow gaming area to be the size of Switzerland .. and it is a big game indeed.

Adventurning on your own and discovering new places is of cause a large part of the game, but i still find myself stuck searching for hours, trying to find that elusive mob that should be located "north of crossroads" somewhere.

This is where this great book shows its worth. Half the book is area/city maps and the other half is a large alfabetic index so you can quickly get the right location on the map grid. Sometimes the index also give you a small hint like "blow horn" or "behind tree".

Book also have a handfull of pages listing placement of profession NPC, vendor, flight and those rare and hard to find mobs.

Best of all, this book dont SPOIL the game at all. Its is NOT a quest-killer or walktrough, it is NOT a list of vendor-items being sold, it is NOT a faction list or a gold making book .. and thank ye gods for that.

Just a nice Atlas that will help you when you get stuck or cant remember the location of one of the 1000+ places or people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your road map to WoW, 10 April 2006

This review is from: World of Warcraft® Atlas (Brady Games - World of Warcraft) (Hardcover)
This is truely a fantastic publication - from your first day in the game it will help you find your way through the world until the very end of level 59 (not level 60+ because a lot of the game is "off map" then. Whether you need a lump of copper ore or to find that evil boss that respawns once a wekk - this book will help you.
A must buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good but.., 8 Feb 2009

This review is from: World of Warcraft® Atlas (Brady Games - World of Warcraft) (Hardcover)
Overall it is very good if a freind in your guild or otherwise asks where a certain place is and if you are about to go into a new area and need advice on where the flight master is etc. Also it is better to use the book one then the free online version as you will not have to constantly minimisng the game.
The but comes when you look for zone levels. The atlas lacks these and as a result you will often walk into areas and find the yare 10 or 20 levels above you.
All in all a good product with plenty going for it

This review is from: World of Warcraft® Atlas (Brady Games - World of Warcraft) (Hardcover)
This book helps me a lot with the game to search where are the trainers in witch village or town.
It is pretty easy to search and read and a lot of other things that you need in the game.
I would recommended this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 29 Oct 2005

This review is from: World of Warcraft® Atlas (Brady Games - World of Warcraft) (Hardcover)
This hardback atlas contains beautifully produced maps of all the warcraft areas and hand drawn maps of all city and outpost areas.
It has a detailed index of all NPC's and vendor, trainers, resources etc.
The quality of the binding and printing is very good.
This is a must have book for all warcraft players and would not look out of place as a coffee table piece.
If you want a wow reference then this is the one to choose.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lost between an Atlas and an A to Z: Utterly useless, 12 Nov 2007

So you want to have a quick look to see where that lake an archived quest talks about is, or whereabouts the Night Song Forest is? Want to know whether you are walking towards Horde or Alliance territory or like in a real Atlas know a bit of geo-political snippets of races inhibiting the territory, even perhaps a little indication of the friendliness or level of those? At least a few nice illustrations of the characters dwelling the regions? Well, forget it.

The strength of an Atlas is in its index. When you are lost in London, you know where you want to go, it is how to get there that you don't. You can bet that you will not find 80% of the locations described in quests in the index of this Atlas.

This also might be the only "atlas" that instead of also listing the geographical areas by proximity, starting from one point and then progressing towards neighbouring regions, it lists macro-regions in alphabetical order. The question is, will you know whether Teldrassil is a macro region or a region inside a macro-region as easy as San Francisco is in California and California is in the States or that Westminster is in London and London is in England and England is in the UK?

The artwork is incredibly unimaginative, it is maps, and maps... nothing else, no nice drawings of Orcs, or Elfs, or fauna or flora, it is just maps, bleeding maps without icons or faction flags, or anything that could liven up this throw up of "atlas". Just check the cover of the book and you can see what I am talking about, how exciting is it to have a hazy picture of a desert as the cover? Yet this will be one of the few illustrations other than maps you will find in the whole "atlas".

Oh, yes, there are no coordinates either. Instead they use the A to Z approach of letters and numbers. Then you will have to guess where in each square (covering several yards) your faction village is. It is sadly unhelpful in all senses.

I have found myself using the internet and later the maps add-ons offered for free over the web more than this "atlas", which due to its tight-fisted art doesn't even qualify as a valuable collectible.
