Changes and preparations

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?


Troll or tauren

New race/class combinations are finally avaliable and many people are changing from tauren druid to troll druid. I’ve already told you about my love for taurens but people have asked me if I was going troll druid and I have been considering it because of the racial and the colorful forms.

Have to say I’m really disappointed in the moonkin form. I thought they were going to make a totally new moonkin skin for trolls and worgens, and maybe update the tauren and night elf form. I remember back in the days they said they were placeholders, ye right, for all these years? And they took the time to update all the other forms and hunter pets or whatever it was I read about in a new blue post thingy on MMO-Champion.

I’ve always been a tauren, or wait.. My druid has been a night elf cause I played alliance for a year, but didn’t really like it, the racial was ok and I like the night elf moonkin form. But was happy when I came back to Horde this summer.

But I have other tauren characters and the troll racial is really good for moonkin, so I decided to race change and test it, see how it feels to be a troll. Feels a bit sad right now, like I’m betraying the tauren, will miss my cute tauren and /moo. But think I’ll race change my paladin from blood elf to tauren, never liked blood elves. So one goes from tauren, another one becomes a tauren.
