I would write a useful post but my brain is fried on benedryl, you don’t want me thinking that hard. Or well, I don’t know if I can think that hard. So, have some random (trying not to be spoilery?) comments on leveling in Hyjal.
So far, Hyjal isn’t bad. The scene that plays out as you fly in is really cool–even Josh expressed some enjoyment of its awesomeness.
I love Draenei but I am jealous of human rep hax. Hrmph.
Watching laggy blood elves chase down rabbits is kind of funny. Sad, but funny.
Josh: Your threat is insane.
Me: AOE ICY DICKPUNCH and proc of OH HELLO TANKING!
I know the plural of deer is deer. But I’m going to squeal about the BABY DEERS anyway.
OMG BABY TURTLES. (Pst: you don’t need the turtle companions to kill Nemesis, btw. Not in a pair with mostly epics, anyway. We lost ours and we were too lazy to go back and get them, but it only half healthed us.)
Fuck you horde camping Cinderwhoever. I may have been the only spawn I saw you being a dick at, but fuck you anyway.
I spent a lot of time getting hit by stray Captain America shields. I’m sure I clipped more than a few hordies with Howling Blast, though when guards were around I tried REALLY REALLY HARD. I also ended up with no few hunter and warlock pets attacking me after I clipped them with something. Oops. For the most part though, people were leaving each other alone.
Mining nodes are serious business. If you beat me to it, cool. If you beat me to it but then aggro something, MINE. Beat me to it and you’re horde? MINE. Or I’m dead, one or the other. We snagged nodes from under the noses of everyone from guildies (poor Solt) to blog readers that I belatedly recognized (O HAI). Not nessicarily on purpose, mind (I’d have let Solt have the one if I’d only seen it was him and well…if it hadn’t been Zoja’s turn) but those yellow dots on our maps cause some sort of mindless frenzy. MINE MINE MINE MINE.
We found a mining spot that seemed good but I can’t remember the name of it. Doesn’t that suck for you?
Also I don’t care how awkward getting around was THE JOUSTING QUEST WAS AWESOME. You know why it was awesome?
