Yes, you may have noticed a facelift around here today! I've been struggling inwardly with a difficult decision recently. As much fun as I've been having running around smashing faces as a Forsaken Death Knight, as much as I love taming new exotic pets on my Orc Hunter, my WoW life has been missing something. SPACE GOATS.
I can't fight it any longer! On a whim, I thought I'd roll a Draenei Hunter and test the crashed-spacecraft-polluted waters of Azuremyst Isle. Within a few minutes of murdering hapless wildlife with the help of my adorable baby Moth, I was hooked!
I couldn't believe how fast the leveling was going, and I merrily blazed through the Draenei starting zone and hit up some other Alliance regions I'd been neglecting. Wetlands! Westfall! Redridge Mountains! I'd always wondered what these areas were about, and now I could finally explore them! It was like a brand new game! :D
I've got to be honest, I'm really loving the peacefulness of these quests! On the Horde, it was always "OMG kill these guys or else we're all going to die!" or "We're at war! Time to go murder dozens of people!"
But on the Alliance side, it's remarkably idyllic and soothing. "I just knit some warm new socks, can you please deliver them to my husband?" "Would you be a dear and go fetch me some ingredients for my mud pie dinner?" "Let's go for a picnic! (Objective: Go for a picnic with Delores.)" It's so nice and pleasant! I luv it!
I even stepped into some battlegrounds! I was nervous. My fingers were trembling! :O Would I be able to kill my former friends and allies? Turns out...YES! It was like stepping into a worn-in, comfortable set of jewel-encrusted hoof-shoes!
I think I am sold! Next payday I'll be race changing all my toons to Alliance! My heart belongs in the Exodar, riding giant fluffy pink Elekks, and gleefully shouting Russian-sounding phrases that I don't understand! KRONO KAI KRISTO!!
But do not worry, if you were wondering where to turn for an Orcish voice in the blog community! A good friend will now be covering all things Orcish on her blog! Go say hello! Or as they say over there "Zug Zug!" (Hee hee. Zugzug! Zugzug!)
