We finally hit 120 whilst questing through Nazmir. We only 1 more of the quest chains to complete for the achievement so I think we did well to get there!
WOO! Always feels good to get that last level. However I was a little disappointed I didn’t get anything. No new spell, or talent or anything. Just the achievement. Am i missing something? I asked Moryrt and a few others and they all said there was nothing I am missing.
OK then on with it we go! I levelled a few quests before Moryrt, no idea how i got so far ahead of him, but it wasn’t log before he dinged either. So Druid and Demonhunters are levelled. Next onto Mage for me and DK for him…maybe 🙂
I tried to take a photo of us at 120 with the Princess to celebrate our 120 status (I have never met such royalty before so I was fangirling a little) and Moryrt started dancing. Have to love the BE dance, but it does make photos hard.
Now we can get into the fun stuff off expeditions, gearing, heroics, mythics etc etc. I can’t wait to figure it all out now.
Grats to us and to everyone else who is there already on second/third toons.
It is just endless and all over the place. I sort of like it. Sort of. There is this constant underlying anxiety to playing at the moment as you have no idea if you have actually finished with the line or if they are going to spring some more on you. Fred posted on our guild page the Dark Legacy Comic a few days ago and my god is it accurate!!
I was laughing to stop from crying at the accuracy! I am not sure I enjoy just having three never ending continents, I think I prefer lots of smaller areas as it makes you feel like you are achieving zone completion. I am not sure as there is something to be said for only having to remember 3 zones for the xpac. LOL
But some of the quests have just been fun. So much fun! I have a gallery of some of my favourites. Including the ones in Vol’dun which I missed on my druid but found on my mage (I might go back and do them).
I particularly enjoyed being turned into a giant toad and licking my enemies to death. I also don’t think there can be enough Bawonsamdi in this game. I want to die more often just to hear his smart arse comments. I had no idea about them until I died 4 times on my mage and noticed one of his snarky sayings was “That blink didn’t help you at all, did it?” LOL Awesome. Just awesome. Moryrt enjoyed turning into a blood troll and looking like a heroin addled drug addict 🙂
And be sure to Eat Your Greens whilst you are questing in and around Nazmir, it is to ensure you have strong constitution to deal with all the killing, maiming and hunting.
Levelling is so much fun. I almost wish it never ended.
Before we discuss first impressions I have to tell you about the excitement I had leading up to BfA. I had scheduled 2 weeks leave, but it was cancelled due to circumstances at my new job. So I wanted to ensure I had maximum game time on Tuesday night and I had jokingly said to Moryrt (hubby) I wanted him to have the lights set to red (For the Horde!! of course) and the World of Warcraft Theme song playing as I entered the house.
I kid you not.
He pulled it off.
I was laughing my butt off when I walked inside. I thought it was fantastic and I was clapping and dancing 🙂 It was brilliant. He is simply amazing to me. I am so grateful he does these small things which mean so much. <gushing>
We shovelled food really quickly as I didn’t want to be trying to eat while questing etc and then went upstairs to….our red room…
Yeah…we horded out 🙂
We jumped online and found that Nibblepie was just starting at the same time as us so we grouped up together and started the questline! We got our hearts, added a first choice to it, then did the Stormwind Scenario. My wonderful Jaina tried to kill me, I will have words with her later.
Here are the three of us at the top of the mountain after meeting the King 🙂
We all found it quite hilarious that we could just walk into some foreign territory with some people really fighting against us being accepted and then not 2 minutes later they are showing us to their vault where they keep the wealth of the empire….not a smart move Princess Talanji.
Finding our profession trainers was a pain in the butt. Moryrt was trying to help me as a Demonhunter and says “follow me, I know the way” and proceeds to jump off the side of the building, flap his giant Demonhunter wings and laugh at my boomchicken wondering where he would land. He was just showing off!
We spent the time on discord with Pracey as well just grabbing quests and collecting and killing. I fell in love.
Just look at those fluffy as heck faces!! LOOK AT THEM!!!!! OMG I took so many pictures you would all be seriously ashamed of me.
Here is another one – omg look how cute they are. I want one. A mount one day? I really hope so. Blizzard please make these an easily obtainable mount. I just cannot stop looking at them without smiling.
Pracey eventually met up with us and was running around killing everything for us. We ended the night because of maintenance (BOOOOO!!!), explain to me why you would release an xpac and then continue with the maintenance for the week. Just cancel it people. Seriously. It could have waited a week.
We didn’t quite make it to 111, but we are not far off, I think maybe 10% or less to get the rest of the way.
I am enjoying it so far but I think it is too early to give any real idea on how I am feeling about it. Graphics are nice, the scenery is lovely as expected, the music is enjoyable. The usual standard.
Two standouts for me :the stealthing through Stormwind was really well executed; I was actually a little stressed due to the speed which was nice to have adrenalin pumping and the cinematic of the new land – it was simply gorgeous.
I forgot to mention that my hunter is now level 40, she dinged yesterday!
She is currently just a playtoy so I can collect pets 🙂 I have the white cat which is a horde quest and goreclaw now as well which is a quest raptor.
Ultimately I want a core hound so am leveling beast mastery. We shall see how it pans out as she is on a US server in a random guild; I created her to be in a friends guild however he left the guild and the server shortly after I created her.
