Yup, I'm back. Again. Reactivated my account a few days ago to do the Elemental Invasion stuff, and now the whole world has changed in many interesting ways.
Orgrimmar looks spectacular, but it's extremely disorienting. There's so much new stuff in there, and everything old has changed dramatically. I knew the old city like the back of my hand, and this is like coming back to your home neighborhood after 20 years. I'm absorbing it, in bits and pieces, but it's going to take time. I'm so glad they got rid of all the buildings that were half-embedded in the cliff faces, although there are still some left in The Drag (looks like they might be "rebuilding" those too eventually though). I guess I know who's been buying all that Dark Iron I've been putting on the AH over the years: the Hellscream Development Corporation.
My old druid, Spamfire, is dead. He was only lvl. 21, a Tauren of exceptional bravery. He died in the attack on Camp Taurajo...more or less literally. I had no idea where I left him when I stopped playing him (a couple years ago) and it turns out I left him in the Inn in Taurajo. I logged in, and he got killed by those Alliance bastards squatting in the ruins. I was basically just there to cannibalize his gear anyway.
In reality, I deleted him to create a new troll druid, Yabengo, because troll druid animal forms are WAY better than any other race's. Especially their flight form.
I don't know if I'll keep updating this blog. Probably, because I'm so vain. We'll see. I'm sure I'll be updating a lot once Cataclysm is released.
