If it's not one thing it's another.
I do not rep grind. I don't care about the goodies they can give.

The expansion is really nice, and I'm enjoying it. It came when I was out of town for work though. I still got a copy and was able to play it on the laptop. I just wish I had more time to level. But, I'm content with leveling at my own pace. Working makes leveling a bit harder; I just imagine being in college again though. *le sigh*

I liked going into the Hellfire Citadel too. I don't know if it's just me, but the thing seems like a relief. The place just goes by quickly. I don't know if that is by design or doing quests with end-game guildies.

Reputation or faction grinding. Doing those sh!tty repetitive turn-in quests to increase your reputation with Argent Dawn, etc.

I'm loving the expansion so far. I levelled a Blood Elf Mage to 10 in about three hours and managed to run to the Ruins of Andorhal in WPL before a spider got me.

I spent most of the evening yesterday in Hellfire Peninsula questing. I was completely pissed when I completed a quest to (get this) place torch beacons under four towers at an orc camp, and was rewarded with a blue chest piece which was BETTER than my Robe of the Archmage!!!!! I went to LBRS until I was sick of it before the pattern dropped for me. Then I had to farm the materials for it! Boggles the mind what the Outland instances will drop.

Edit: yay, 400th post. :P

So you changed your opinion from just ok to your loving it? That's cool. I will say this expansion did just that for this game. It made the World of Warcraft world HUGE! There is so much content in this game and you can actually park your self at lvl 60 for a bit and get good gear or go all the way. WoW really is the best MMO bar none. I know some people hate WoW but I for one love it. I tried to quit the game 4 times but I always came back. I am sure I will be playing this game at least through the summer.

Yep. I spent the first day or so as a newbie Blood Elf. It was fun, but nowhere near the visceral excitement that came from questing in Outland, and having those stand-off PVP will-they-or-won't-they moments. The respawn rate atm is perfect, no doubt because of the increase in players.

I completely and accidentally whacked an undead mage with my staff in the large canyon with the wind-somethingorother beasts which then escalated into a PVP bloodbath with 16-or-so on each side. Fantastic. At the end we (Horde & Alliance) all paused, laughed, and went back to questing.

I quit the game over the summer, but after 5 minutes on Ventrilo with some workmates, I'm baaaaaack!

Is it just me or do the blood elf starting quests give a LOT of XP?

And Jewelcrafting seems incredibly overpowered.



But neither of those bother me.

My sentiments exactly!

And I started another bloodbath in that bird canyon again. This time deliberately!
