So, yesterday was full of surprises. Let’s see here, we’ve got…
…Death Knights which wound up being about ten times more fun than I was expecting. The whole opening quest line thingy was superbly done and perhaps more importantly, I am absolutely in love with my character ideas for my Death Knight. And as you long-time readers know, even though I am not a particularly active roleplayer, I looooove making characters and stories for them and more often than not, it is backstory more than any other factor that determines which characters I wind up actively playing… this is especially true for non-hunters cause it’s so hard for me to get into them otherwise.
Why yes, I did make a gnome. I like gnomes. And c’mon…
…stealing a pony is adorable.
Next up: Queue Times.
Queue Times are a strange phenomena that I have not had to deal with before. But it appears that with the launch of Wrath of the Lich King, old-time players are returning to the game in droves. It seems to be especially affecting older servers and, well, Silver Hand is a launch-date server (one of only two RP servers on launch day, according to WoWWiki!) I myself got lucky and never had to wait in line more than a few minutes, but there were reports in Trade Chat and among some of my friends and guildmates that the line was as high as 400 people and an hour’s wait at some points.
Fortunately for me, there is always The Venture Co. where all my hordies are at, if the wait gets too unbearable– VeCo is a low-pop server so it’s nice to see it actually bumped up to Medium now =P
As for my hunters, well, Tawyn trained all of the next levels of her professions (byebye gold!) and did some questing in Howling Fjord but by this time the place was swamped and I got sleepy really early (I blame the previous night’s Midnight Release), so I just called it an early night. I do plan on doing a lot more stuff with her and hopefully Lunapike today. Really, I am in no rush to hit 80. I know a lot of people are runnin’ their way to Naxx and I can definitely understand that, but I am content with going a little slower, seeing all the sights and messing around with multiple characters and not just one.
Plus, come on. Hellfire Peninsula is a “WTB Healer” fest right now, and I have a level 57 resto druid. You don’t expect me to ignore that clarion call completely, do ya? =P
