    Happy: hit my mark of 72 last night, almost done Borean Tundra.
    Hope: the other zones are just as sweet.

    I liked Borean Tundra more than Howling Fjord, after I went back and did it one I'd completed Tundra.

    Dragonblight though? Dragonblight is awesome.

    I hated Borean Tundra. I thought Howling Fjord was alot more fleshed out and exciting. Favorite zone overall is either Grizzly Hills or Icecrown.

    Edit:

    HATE: Those bomber missions in icecrown (the goblin ones) keep bugging out in the middle of them freezing up my bomber and making all enemy mobs neutral. Shit is annoying.

    Zul'drak i think is the best zone. Not only in terms of lore + ambience + decor, but it is designed well. There is an easy, orderly progression to it that minimizes running around, if you go through it. There are a few annoying bits (everyone zone has them), but they are minor enough not to detract from the overall experience. Fuck alchemist finklestein, though, and commander whosits with his scruffy toe lint. But other then that, best new zone.

    Could have fleshed out the last part of the zone (around gundrak) with more quests, but maybe we'll see those when they add the obligatory troll raid.

    I like Fjord much better than the Tundra, just on aesthetics.

    Hate: Quest disguises that only work in their particular region. I was planning on keeping both the Worg disguise from Fjord and the Scourge disguise from Zul'Drak till I found out you can't use them anywhere else. :( Still might keep the Scourge disguise.

    Happy: Either tonight or tomorrow will be my first incursion into Naxx. :)

    Yeah Zul Drak is very nice. Besides Borean tundra Ive liked all of the zones so far and that questline in storm peaks where you get turned into a giant vyrkul woman (with rude titties) is awesome. Setting wolves and frost giants on fire while riding a giant polar bear should be a staple in all games.

    Happy: while sitting around in LFG for a nexus run, I get asked by a guildie if I would like to heal Old Kingdom. And I'm like "Wurr is dat at?" Because I've finished the Fjord and started on the Tundra and that's the extent of my Northrend experience. I'm reluctant, but he coerces and cajoles me and so I go. And it was smoooth. And I got a bunch of blues. Then we immediately run Azjol'newhatever and it was equally smooth and I got even more blues.

    And now I got a bunch of blues and got to try out full-disc healing with the shields and the aegis and the penance and it was good.

    Love: Shield of Righteousness. "Hey dude, that's a cool shie... OH GOD MY FACE WHY ARE YOU HITTING ME WITH IT?!"

    I was critting things for 4k+ with it. So. Much. Fun. Still trying to think of a cool macro emote or /say to add while using it.

    Hope: That I can tank Heroic Utgarde with only 18k unbuffed HP. (Saw another Protadin with 25k health earlier...)

    ffffffffffff: Amazingly, I can't really think of one right now related to WoW... I think that's the first time ever.

    I certainly thought the Fjord looked great, but Borean Tundra seems to have better quests, and better versatility. HF is basically Vrykul and more Vrykul, with some Tuskarr thrown in, and it all looks the same except for a small bit of snow.

    BT has hugely ominous scourge zones, like right outside the Horde starting base, and it has murloc quests, and the mage fields near Amber ledge, and dragon-magery in Coldarra, and then a freakin' Necropolis.

    While I think that Fjord over has a more consistent theme overall, I thought the quests were better in the Tundra both in itemization (for dps classes anyway, more crit and less haste) and removing the need to travel as far from the quest hubs. Aesthetically Fjord does look better, Tundra has more areas and some really wildly varying terrain.


    Besides, I don't see Fjord quests that let me dress up as a murloc and run around.

    Tundra is a grab bag. It has a lot of neat stuff, but no real continuity.

    Fjord has continuity, but it's more spread out and there's fewer "wow, cool" moments than there were in Borean (although the ones fjord does have are awesome.)

    I like Howling Fjord because "Holy shit i'm killing giants", is fun. I just found those models to be really neat looking and well animated. Was a lot of fun killing them en masse.

    Borean was just too much. It never seemed to end, and the quests were pretty meh. None of the questlines really stuck out in my mind at all and were very fragmented.

    Dragonblight is pure awesome. I love the quests there, especially the ones near the keep that you have to go back to a bajillion times. It's like, right outside the town gates and the continuity was great. Not to mention the end all be all questline, you know the one. \

    Grizzly hills was fun as well, short, sweet, fun quests. It was nice to get in and out of there pretty quickly.

    Hope: My rogue starts to get a little more fun. I like sneakin' around and killin' shit, but I wish I had a little more survivability.

    Evasion? or Vanish and run?

    It's not as bad as the 2.X'ish days of "chaining cleaves for EVERYONE!", but rogue survivability is getting iffy in pve again, in my experience.

    We're one of the lowest armour classes in the game (most of the cloth wearers can put up self buffs that match or exceed what we wear) and while our HP pool has jumped again, many bosses seem to have some very nasty "fuck you, melee range folks! Hope you're built like a tank, hee hee hee" abilities.

    As people gear up it'll become less of an issue, but right now it's a bit rough in some instances.

    Doubly so when you're using Tricks of the Trade on the tank to make the run smoother, and the fucker turns a boss with a "Pound everything in front of me for 40,000 fucking damage" (fucking damage, like holy damage, being mostly unresistable) on top of you.

    I'm seeing a lot of "fuck you melee" whirlwinds.

    Annoyed: Did some Heroics with a Hunter even more geared than me today. Basically, the Hunter puts up Misdirect before each pull, and then starts DPSing as soon as we see the mobs, regardless of how far the tank is or where the tank is or what the tank is doing or what the mob is or anything else. And the Hunter just stands in one place, and shoots, while I run out of whirlwinds; get feared; get Arcane Blasted; have to move out of poison clouds; dodge the Blizzard; Interrupt and/or Stun mobs.

    Stupid Hunters and their simple, simple lives of Autoshot/Steady Shot. :x

    Actually, that spectre of lay offs recently passed over my workplace like the Angel of Death. The powers that be decided to be generous enough to paint some lamb's blood over our door. If not for the months training needed to learn our jobs, I would probably have been canned. So, as of the latest news, my job is as secure as one can hope for in these times. But I am still pissed at that stupid dickhead.

    And the whole impending financial collapse of the world I also find very inconvenient to my playing schedule.
