Right now it’s past 9 pm here and less than three hours left until midnight and Battle for Azeroth! I’ve spent the last days preparing my druid, so I’ve cleaned the bags and the bank for the first time in years, sold off stuff I don’t need, completed quests and cleared the quest log.
I have also done something else which I have thought about for a long time. I race changed my druid from troll to highmountain tauren! My druid has been a troll since the update that made trolls able to be druids 8 years ago. I was never a big fan of trolls, I just wanted to be an orange moonkin. The tauren has always been my favorite race and my first character, my warrior, was of course a male tauren. I was very excited about the highmountain tauren becoming a playable race because they are tauren, got a solid story and look like a moose with their big antlers.
I have of course completed the pre-expansion event which I have a few thoughts about. The storyline leading up to Battle for Azeroth has been interesting, but I expected more of an event like this. There hasn’t been much to do, except for the new but short questline every week and some daily quests with decent rewards for characters with low item level. This event was nothing compared to the previous pre-expansion events, my favorite being the pre Wrath of the Lich King event where you could turn into a zombie and infect other players.
I did participate in the Battle for Azeroth beta, but I’m still excited about the expansion and can’t wait to see, hear and read everyone elses reactions and thoughts about it.
Bye, the Broken Isles and Legion! I’m off to Zandalar and Kul Tiras to fight some Alliance and save Azeroth!
Are you prepared?
