Having so many stories roaming about in my brain and wanting to play instead of writing has been an issue of mine for the last year, however, think I’ll try to do a bit more writing and build up my following a bit more.
Had zero issues with the launch of Battle for Azeroth and have enjoyed what little I have played in the new zones, however, once again, I am still stuck with some of the things in Legion if I plan on expanding my character base a bit with new Allied races. I will never understand why Blizzard locked everything behind the reputations and will say that I dislike it immensely. That’s just my personal opinion and nothing against those that have done it – I am always behind these last two expansions. I don’t think that will change anytime soon because I’m not doing a whole lot to advance myself – toon hopping is not going to make it go faster although it does make it more entertaining for me and I never get bored with it.
I am going to say that I don’t care for the “new” armor – never did like the idea of running around looking like a sad neon sign. So, I will be doing a lot of transmog in this expansion as I level just to keep my immersion going. The super bright gold on the armor makes me feel like I am standing in a cave with a spotlight on myself – not appealing to me at all. Again, this is my opinion.
All the drama leading up to the launch left me feeling very drained emotionally because I play both Horde and Alliance. I can see why this was done the way that it was and that was to build up the hype and get more people to join into the hype for the War, however, if left me feeling a bit depressed.
On the Horde side, I was dismayed and sad to see that the Horde is being touted as the bad guys as usual, however, the genocide was not enjoyable for me. Both factions have done horrible things in the past and will continue to do so – this is World of WARcraft, after all, not my Little Pony.
At least I am starting to feel like I am going to be able to play a bit more and I’m able to do play a little bit longer at a time. Having some vision issues again, however, that goes with the age. Still enjoying the game and I hope that everyone is enjoying themselves. I’m going to hang out in Legion a bit to grind out the reps but that’s par for the course. I’m always behind and I get to play at a leisurely pace.
See you all in Azeroth.
