Feeling Like a Hero

I’m not a very big quest person, as much as I may try to be. I get into my moods where I’ll spend a day grinding them out but after that one day I want a week off so I can do something else. As an indication to how much I am enjoying the warlock – I’ve been questing on her. Not just questing but questing a LOT. I finished the achievement for all 130 quests in Dragonblight yesterday, which finished up with the amazing chain pictured above. I was sent back with Thrall and Sylvanas Windrunner (pictured above) to take the Undercity back. I LOVED this quest. It was great. Imagine you’re sent back to Freeport after it lay in ruins to battle the void and free Lucan D’Lere. Imagine there’s a Freeport version of this quest and then a Qeynos version. It’s quests like these that make me feel like a hero. As though I am actually helping to change the tides in favor of my side.

Sure, thousands of other players are walking that exact same hero path that I am – but the method in which these quests are implemented still leave me with that warm fuzzy feeling. It was great. I wanted to stand up and scream ‘For the Horde!’ – except my neighbors were home and well. Yeah.

The warlock? Level 76. Only FOUR more levels to go! I’m excited. Of course that’s still countless numbers of quests to complete, but I’m getting used to it, slowly.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

    Remember, quests are what you do while waiting for your random dungeon to be ready ;)

  2. The sad part is that this quest chain will be gone in Cataclysm due to timeline issues (e.g. Thrall not being in Ogrimmar). I actually made a point of getting an old Horde alt up to the appropriate level so I could replay the event from the other perspective.

  3. That whole questline is terrific and Blizzard’s PvE game at its peak – the only chain that has come close is the old Onyxia attunement chain. Speaking only from an Alliance perspective though, I have no idea how it looks from the Horde’s point of view. For Gnomeregan!
