I am even ashamed to admit this which is dumb why should I? I shall stand proud .
Yes ladies and gentleman I have caved in and resubbed to WoW. I blame my pesky son who showed me the new areas on his freshly boosted Warlock and I was overcome by what I saw.
I did not however buy the expansion. The last expansion was Warlords of Draenor which my son got as a birthday gift and applied to my account. He finally got his own account but this WoW influence is so strong my husband who was just doing what he normally does while drinking tea (he watches me play whatever I am currently playing from Divinity Original Sin 2 or Path of Exile or his favourite No Man's Sky) suddenly said he wanted to play too. Great it's like a virus.
I suppose the boost in Draenor is gone right you can only use the boost while the expansion it was for is in effect right?
Anyway I decided to play the character I had made when the scaling went in, in January I think and I am now around level 25 but I am enjoying the quests so much .Yesterday I died 4 times to the quest chain in Redridge involving Bravo Company and the Elite orcs. The thing is I am now considering making just one other character but on Horde so I might experience both the sides of the story. I found that I can perhaps get some rested experience playing this way.
In your opinion do you think it is a good idea to play one Horde and one Alliance character or do you think this might burn me out. Should I just play one character?
I must say though the number of people playing is amazing,it's packed and even in Redridge so many people. I myself have gone back to play so why am I surprised but nevertheless I am surprised to see so many people. The other thing I noticed although no one spoke in the LFD group. They went slowly and I had to work to keep the health up especially on the monk. Monk is a nuisance to heal. He was not even the tank but the way the HP dropped is alarming. I suppose the scaling has really made players think before rushing ahead which I must say is a fantastic improvement even if I am playing with zombies who refuse to talk. I don't do dungeons usually because I disliked how people ran headlong like headless chickens but I must say it was an improvement.
Don't have a guild yet but I will take time to get that but I wanted to play a Paladin on the Horde side but after reading how hard it was to heal as a Pally in lower dungeons I ditched that idea pronto. Although I do so enjoy the well armoured healer concept. I need dungeons just for gear not really the experience which I think quests are good for right now and more fun than the zombie dungeon runs. Pity really dungeons are personally why I play MMORPGs.
