As I’ve stated a number of times before, I’m quite a fan of World of Warcraft. I’m not necessarily the best player by any stretch of the imagination, but I couldn’t help but return for some sad, twisted reason or another. The pre-patch to Warlords of Draenor dropped today, and I figured I should get moving on things I’ve been wanting to try but couldn’t quite work up the nerve to actually…er, well, try. Plus, I heard there would be a higher likelihood of being able to solo more recent old content, such as Cataclysm raids, and so I couldn’t pass up a chance to die magnificently in content I barely managed to enjoy when it was current. However, there’s more to my day than just staring at a computer screen (thankfully for both my need to be at least a little productive as well as the health of my eyeballs).
I ended up taking a couple vacation days this week (and next week) to tend to unpacking, organizing, and so on. This should be a bit shocking, I know. My desk migrated into what will eventually transform into the office/study/whatever, and I put a pretty decent dent in making the living room a liveable space. However, with a new patch comes the need to screw around in Azeroth, and so I found myself moving through the pre-expansion quests as quickly as I could. Once I’d done that, I decided I wanted to try my hand at getting Garr’s Binding of the Windseeker. It’s a prize that has eluded me for quite some time. However, as pictured above…luck was on my side today. So much so, in fact, that I decided to see how well this squishing went in terms of old content. As I type this, I’ve completed both Blackwing Descent and Firelands (finally killing Ragnaros) on my Warlock. I’m screwing around in Heroic ICC before trying anything else, and generally speaking I love how accessible old content has become.
Any other WoW players enjoying these new changes so far?
