Style Tut for WarCraft Font

This is for the program ADOBE PHOTOSHOP, from 7 to CS4. My first tutorial ever but I believe I have the format good. It might need a lightening layer of white at 5-25% opacity underneath the color balance to pretty much match the font side by side with an actual picture of the warcraft/world of warcraft title, but otherwise it should be alright. Its not perfect but it looks good enough, not some pieced together thing from the original by cutting and pasting but you can suit this for any needs.

****NOTE: Tutorial has been amended as of 8/14/08. The first duplicate layer is to have 0% fill. If not you will have fluorescent text. Thanks for bringing this to my attention Roy a.k.a Geexxor.****

9/6/06: sorry but the tutorial needs another amendation. the character tab settings should be LifeCraft font at 72pt. depending on the word you use you could adjust the kerning.

Were youn talking about the font or the effect?

The font is a heavily modified version of Fritz Quadrata: [link]

As for the effect it would be rather simple.

I've been looking for a good font for the word "World" in the WoW logo... It's definitely a serif font similar to Times New Roman, but it's slightly different. Since you're into fonts I thought you might know what font it is.

"Burning Wrath" works well for the expansion pack titles, although the "L" is definitely from "Lich" and not from "Cataclysm". [link]
