After two nights of leveling a new toon and partaking of the whole Worgen experience, I must say… I’m having a blast. I’m making sure to soak in all of the sights and sounds along the way, but I’m clicking along at a pretty good pace. I went ahead and mailed over a half-dozen or so heirlooms to my new Rogue, making things a little smoother. I was thinking about going the more challenging route and using only quest gear, but nah… a lot of time, blood and sweat were spent acquiring those BoEs – might as well use ‘em.
Needless to say, I’m pretty beastly now…
Pretty soon I may take a break from the questing for a few, and hit up 10-19 WSG for some fun. Maybe take out a few unsuspecting hunters.
I’m only level 14 at the moment, so I haven’t really gotten a feel for the Rogue class just yet. Ambush does seem to do amazing damage at this level, which has me excited about getting into some BGs. Ooohhh, I just realized… don’t we have Arathi Basin available for 10-19 too?
As far as the Worgen class goes… I really like it. The starting quests are quite engaging, and the gothic feel of the whole Victorian-Era-London style setting really helps draw you in to the whole werewolf experience. The new accents are amusing too.
Darkflight is a pretty slick racial, and handy during the lower levels for a quick giddy-up now and again while questing. Viciousness may not be an exciting racial, but it’s pretty awesome. 1% increased critical strike chance on all attacks, while using any sort of weapon, is pretty sweet.
Aberration looks pretty boring on paper, but I’m sure it will prove quite useful for PvP.
Once I obtained the ability to switch between the Two Forms, I used it a couple of times, but I prefer to just remain wolfed out now.
Surprisingly… one racial I’m really excited about is Flayer. It sounds kinda lame when you read the tooltip, but damn… I love having the faster skinning time. It’s a huge convenience. Also, I had neglected to skin any mobs for awhile, being so awe-stricken by the new surroundings, quests, etc… When I finally realized, Doh..! I’ll probably need to go back and start on a few lower level mobs until I get my skinning level caught up. Nope. The +15 bonus to skinning covered my error.
One thing that may strike you as funny… I find myself wanting to shoot stuff quite a bit. I can’t help it… I mean, I’m stabbing stuff to beat the band, but I love pulling with my Upgraded Dwarven Hand Cannon. I just can’t be expected to suppress my inner hunter.
Anyway… this has been a really fun journey so far. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.
In case you may be wondering what that red bar is at the top of my screen, or what that round thingamajig is near the middle, I’ll be getting to that shortly.
I can tell you though… it is really bitchin’ and it’s made questing a breeze…
