Well, it was only a matter of time.
When I get back into World of Warcraft after a long time, not only do I have to spend time rereading all my spells, as they have more than likely changed, but I need to check out all the new spells I need to deal with. I also have to update addons and fix up my bars. This is all a bit chunk of playtime itself.
Naturally, my Draenei Priest was left in Hellfire Peninsula. It’s tradition at this point for me to make one last visit before ditching my subscription and stopping for a while.
After sorting everything out, I caught up on some questing in High Mountain. I haven’t finished the “Legion” expansion quite yet.
I am very far behind (relative to my friends and other players) as I haven’t played in a long time. I like to take my time questing to read all the details, so it might be a game of catch-up. That’s one thing I dislike about WoW. I always feels like I need to be catching up to other people or some obscure goal or end game, etc. I need to just get used to playing for the sake of experiencing the world itself and having fun. Why make it stressful?
High Mountain is really well done and a fun zone to quest in. It was under a Legion assault when I arrived so I tried to get as many of the world tasks completed as possible — though I tend to get distracted. There are so many other interesting quests (and screenshots to take).
Once the assault was over, High Mountain went back to being its regular Northwest-looking self.
Moving on to the new Expansion
I decided to move on to my Night Elf Druid to check out the new zones.
I’m so sad knowing that Teldrassil has burned, and even more sad that I didn’t start playing earlier in order to do that quest line.
I started with the Siege of Lordaeron. Lordaeron belonged to the humans/Alliance before becoming the Undead’s hub and ruled by Sylvanas Windrunner.
It was a pretty epic introduction; it really felt like an all out war as everywhere you looked, there was tons of action going on. Of course, Sylvanas has gone…mad. In my opinion, she died back when she became the Banshee Queen, but let’s not even go there. That’s a separate post! Now it definitely seems she has been under the influence of an Old God. Oh, Sylvanas. I can’t wait until we get to say goodbye to you.
Boralus, Kul Tiras
Boralus on the island of Kul Tiras is the new hub for the Alliance. This city is amazing! It’s so detailed and intricate, and it’s huge. It’s basically an upgraded Stormwind. Feeling like something out of an 18th century English novel, it has a lot of character. It’s a bustling, lively and subtly dangerous city, with many twists and turns.
After exploring the main city, the first order of business became Drustvar, which is the perfect place to be this month. Curses, witches, idols…the whole spoopy shebang. That’ll be the next post!
