I have spent my weekend frantically levelling (my version of frantic that is - a level a day), which has meant a lot of soloing. Soloing of course generally means that I don’t have much to talk about – I just plug my way through the quests steadily, and have fun while I am doing it. I was lucky enough today to meet no real jerks in the course of my playtime, although the guy who told me to ‘hurry up’ was slightly irritating, since I had said 2 seconds before that I would be a little while since I was at the bottom of a mine when I got the group invite, and had to fight my way out. To compensate for that though I met a delightful Tauren DK who was appropriately named Cowface (or something similar). He was soloing a group quest, and I could see that he was having some difficulty with it (it was a quite difficult quest – I can’t remember what it was called, but it’s the group quest in the Emerald Dragonshrine) so I helped him kill his mob. He paid me back by sticking around (for a few minutes, I might add) while I waited for the last party member to arrive and tanked him when we killed him. Common decency is a great thing.
I have to say I have been getting a kick out of all the dragons that I have been seeing. Yes, I squealed like a little girl when I saw Ysera (my favourite Dragon) and Alexstrasza. I have always been fond of the Dragons in Warcraft, especially since they are imperfect creatures. They make mistakes all the time! I just hope nothing nasty happens to Ysera – bit it doesn’t look promising.
And Wrathgate! Oh my God! How incredibly awesome! I have to admit, I got teary at the end of the quest chain (I won’t spoil it for people who haven’t done it yet). It has now well and truly usurped Jailbreak as my favourite quest chain. I actually got into a heated ‘discussion’ with Kalf at the end of the whole shemozzle about Varian Wrynn – I don’t feel so comfortable being a SW girl anymore, that’s for sure.
Finally, the cutest perk of the day?
