Miss really wanted to try WoW again. I was a bit hesitant, as I remember the occasions when I procrastinated with it. However, it was still the school holidays at this stage, so I was ok with it. I also have very little outside my two jobs. I have finished my study and not currently working on any other projects, so outside of D&D (and family stuff) I don’t have any commitments.
She used her money and subbed, getting stuck in to messing about with characters she had from last time as well as new ones. She also purchased Shadowlands for herself, something I haven’t even done yet.
Anyway, I resubbed as well. To keep her company, to help out, you know….
Boy has a lot changed since I last logged in (maybe 2 years ago?). Everything seems reset. My characters were all still there, but suddenly they’re back in the 40s, not the 80/90s (yes I know about the new level cap). Took several sessions and some close reading of Icy-Veins before I had a handle, somewhat, on Mabaho’s actions. Seems he’s allowed to fly again, which I didn’t expect.
So he’s done the Tauren (High Mountain?), and I found him getting into the Valkyrie story, so I’ve progressed through that. He’s up to 46 now.
But for the first time, he’s not my highest character. I used a level boost (from one of the other expansions) and punched Mabango, my lock up to 48. She went off and started the troll nation quests. I haven’t really got her sorted yet. That was supposed to be to help Miss.
I still have a single boost left. So Magdasal or Pumatay? Oh, as typing this I realise that if I get a Shadowlands expansion, I’ll get another, so I could raise both.
Of course, then I have to level them up to 60 the regular way.
Outside of managing my characters, and the total reset of their skills and action bars, some things have changed.
But my memory is so faded and I remember several of these changes starting back in the earlier expansions, so I more am comparing it to probably Cataclysm days… and that was long ago.
I’ve not experimented with any pet battles, nor have I tried to join any groups dungeons. Still not confident.
The guild has changed a lot too. Only Navimie, my friend and the guild master seems to have stayed. I don’t think I’ve recognised another toon in the sessions I’ve logged in to.
So I’ll sub for a little bit and see where it takes me.
Oh, and Miss, well she took off, has a half dozen characters that I can’t keep up with, as we don’t have the same time online. Ah well.
