Happy to say I’ve gotten my first character to 110 tonight! This was easily the most fun I’ve had leveling in Warcraft in many years. The improvements made to the leveling experience have been beyond exceptional. Everything feels so pleasant and painless now.
Not necessarily “easier” because it’s been extremely easy since WOTLK in my opinion. But it has been “easier” in that it’s so nicely done.
The writing in this expansion is heads above the previous. This is coming from someone that already liked it. It’s clear they watched some Game of Thrones because I swear to god…so much death.
But on the other side of things the funny dialogue is quite funny. They’ve really struck a lovely balance of light and darkness. Which I suppose is apt, given the expansion arc.
As I move onto the next 11 characters on Alliance side I am actually pretty jazzed. The content here is just really exciting and wonderfully balanced. I’m hoping they can continue this level of quality into 7.1 and beyond.
Time will tell, naturally, but me being the optimistic sucker that I am I’ll assume the best until proven otherwise. And then I shall rage! (But not really)
