World of Warcraft: Shadowlands expansion
« on: September 14, 2020, 05:21:42 pm »
Is anyone else excited?

I appear to be so excited that I accidentally re-subbed for 6 months, when all I originally meant to do was 1 month!   ;D

I've been playing Warcraft since the Burning Crusade expansion, but until Battle For Azeroth expansion I've never really made it to max level for any length of time, or played end game content whilst it was actually contemporary, if that makes sense.  So I confess I am actually beginning to get excited.

(Though, when I say end game content I mean something different than when others speak of end game content -- I'm not a raider by any means at all, but it'll just be nice to be doing the most current content when it's newly released, for a change).

Yes. So excited that I'm willing my back to get better post-haste so I can get back to regularly playing and finish up a bunch of stuff before the expac drops.  ;D

(I'm bedridden in the downstairs of my mom's house, in her bedroom. My suite w/ gaming computer is upstairs.  :'( )

(Though, when I say end game content I mean something different than when others speak of end game content -- I'm not a raider by any means at all, but it'll just be nice to be doing the most current content when it's newly released, for a change).

Hah, I mean the same thing. I'm not a raider either though I do some dungeon LFG stuff sometimes...which is usually pretty painful and leaves me with bald spots.

Hope your recovery's going smoothly.

I'm disappointed that the expac's been delayed, but on the other hand perhaps it'll mean there's fewer bugs when it does go live.

Do you know which covenant you'll choose?  I shall be going Ardenweald/Night Fae.

Huh. Same on all counts! I joined in TBC but was a filthy casual up until last year, when I finally got into raiding and high-level play. I'm super pumped for Shadowlands!

Nice!

I  really enjoyed BFA, it really spoke to me what with the eerie-ness of the Drustvar zone and the Lovecraft-ness of Stormsong zone.

I hope to enjoy Shadowlands just as much (and yes, my Nelf already has leaves in her hair...!)

LOVED Drustvar and it entertained me to no end playing my Ally Warlock and having all the NPCs constantly screaming about witches and then going "Um, I'm RIGHT HERE guys, jeez, rude much". XD

Thank you. It is, so far, but then we got a new puppy (basically because the stars aligned for it to happen, not because we were specifically like "hey Morag threw out her back, let's get a puppy") and training him is taking up all of my energy now that I'm back to Morag-normal.

I would have been sad about the delay if it weren't for aforementioned back and puppy stuff -- this means I have a chance to actually finish up stuff before it drops! XD

I have no idea because I've read almost nothing on it at this point. Just haven't had time. Will have to try to read up about the Covenants next time the puppy is napping.

I think it comes out at the same time for everyone? 11pm GMT is 3pm PST, right?

And no worries, I will tag appropriately. Currently my thoughts are not coherent at all. More just at WHARGARBLEOMG.

I am really enjoying this a LOT. :D

Happy Shadowlands day for yesterday then!   :D

We thought it didn't come out here until midnight, but it was a bit late for me to be getting started either way -- I did book today and tomorrow off work as annual leave, however, so here I go...!   ;D

DING! Level 60 today!

Spent a few hours with husband tonight during our virtual date night finishing up Ardenweald and starting Revendreth. I think we'll both be going with Ardenweald/Night Fae Covenant. The spirit form thing is just too cute, and for pure laziness sake I love the upgrade to Death and Decay. (Yes, I main a Death Knight because see above, lazy.)

And now, sleep.

Hey, congrats!  I'm barely level 51 (been really tired from work, and also addicted to this other game my friend gifted me on Steam, but almost finished with it and got a week off work now so will be catching up with WoW soon  ;D).
