This weekend is a holiday weekend, so I was able to dip into some WoW while the other half took kiddo for a walk – it was glorious because I finally finished off the very beginner part of my class hall campaign! YAY!

Then I started working on The Broken Shore stuff.

What?

I don’t understand the point of this zone. I understand what’s going on from a lore perspective, but the place just doesn’t make sense to me. So far I’ve run around completing a few missions / quests, but I’ve seen only a handful of other players, the place is awkwardly packed with encounter after encounter, and I haven’t gotten a single item as loot / quest reward yet. What am I missing? Do I need to progress further in the chain before the usefulness of this zone becomes apparent?

Am I working towards something? I couldn’t even tell you aside from the ability to research my artifact stuff beyond 25.

Speaking of artifacts. I wish I had of been much smarter when it came to spending my points in the beginning. I swapped between all three of my weapons and spread points everywhere. I’m finally on the last 1.2 million required for my main spec (these days that’s DPS) and then… well then I work towards finishing off my holy weapon, I suppose.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m enjoying playing a huge amount, but I just don’t understand what I’m doing in this zone. Plus, I have a quest to go do a dungeon, and it’s causing me some anxiety. It’s not a mythic dungeon (I believe it’s some sort of citadel?) but I still don’t see myself doing it any time soon in a PUG. We’ll have to see, I suppose.

As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
