The Environmental Emulator, a new game mechanic available in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight, allows players to change the skybox of an entire area.
World of Warcraft: Dragonflight introduces a new game that allows players to change the skybox of an entire zone. The new game can be created by players with the profession of engineer World of Warcraft once Dragonflight it shoots.
The new engineering game is called Environmental Emulator. When used, the game allows players to change the skybox in their current area to that of a different zone. The stormy skies of Shadowmoon Valley, the twisting violet clouds of Netherstorm, and the stormy skies of Icecrown are just a few of the options presented by World of Warcraft so far.
The Environmental Emulator lasts two hours when placed and has a two hour cooldown, meaning players can theoretically have it active all the time. Game results are only visible on World of Warcraft player who used it and members of their party or raid. Considering the effects of the game, it can only be used outdoors as it would have little effect indoors. Although it is done by players with the profession of engineer World of Warcraftthe game itself can be used by characters without it.
World of Warcraft The new game isn’t the first to let players change their skyboxes to other things. Haunting Memento allows players to haunt targets, causing spiraling violet energy to sweep across the sky, while Inky Black Potion and Shadescale cause the sky to turn into a beautiful night sky when used. Environmental Emulator joins these items as a must-have collectible for World of Warcraft roleplayers, screenshot enthusiasts, or gamers who just want a change of scenery.
Gamers are excited to get their hands on an Environment Emulator of their own. Some who were otherwise uninterested in engineering as a profession World of Warcraft they even consider taking it on just to get that cool collectible. Many fans discussed some of their favorite skyboxes World of Warcraft history – especially Warlords of Draenor’s Shadowmoon Valley–and hopefully the Environment Simulator will expand to include even more options in the future.
