Cataclysm has finally officially arrived, and as promised, I am making an earnest attempt to return to blogging. Hope you haven’t missed me too much!
I took most of the summer off from World of Warcraft to get a chance to play some of those other games that I’ve bought and never had time to play. But since the release of 4.0.1, I’ve found my excitement about the game growing each day. I’ve tamed a slew of new pets (I’ll surely introduce them in an upcoming post), I’ve started a new alt to explore the new Azeroth content, and I’ve even started doing dailies again – saving up more gold than I’ve had since I bought Epic Flying in Burning Crusade.
Luckily most of my guild has returned to the game as well, and it’s great to be playing with my friends. Without them, I’d certainly not be nearly as excited as I am!
I’m not one of those lucky (or unemployed) people to have the day off, but I did manage to get a couple of hours of playing in this morning before I had to leave for work. I ran around upgrading my professions and riding skill and then took the boat out to Vashj’r. My observations after a couple of short hours:
- Logging in was anti-climactic. No installing, no cinematic, I couldn’t even really tell if my account had actually upgraded at first!
- It will take me a while to get used to flying in Orgrimmar. I still find myself flying through gates, like the one to the Valley of Honor.
- Vashj’r was a good choice. Not very much competition, and swimming really isn’t that bad! Also, SEAHORSE!
Stay tuned for pretty screenshots, funny stories and maybe even a guide or two!
