Wrath of the Lich King continues to impress me. It seems that each zone I’ve quested in has been better than the last. I started the expansion in Borean Tundra and thought it was amazing. The expansion was freshly released at the time of course, and it was an exciting time in general. The Howling Fjord was my next stop and it didn’t take long for me to conclude it was a much more interesting zone than Borean Tundra. It did start to drag on however and I stayed there a little longer than I should have (curse you achievements!), but in the end, I much preferred my time there.
Next up for me was Dragonblight, and this zone blew me away as I talked about in an earlier post. The quests in that zone pertaining to the Wrath Gate were very well done and kept me engaged throughout my entire stay there.
My next destination was Grizzly Hills, which I just finished the other night. I wasn’t expecting much from this zone, for whatever reason, and prepared myself for a let-down after Dragonblight. I was more than pleasantly surprised however. From a questing standpoint, there’s not a whole lot new, and in fact, most of the quests are the standard fetch/kill x number of foozles. What I loved about the zone was its look and atmosphere and in that regard, it has become my favourite zone in Wrath of the Lich King. I love forest zones and this is one of the best I’ve seen in any MMO. The music is fantastic as well and helps set the mood perfectly.
I’m now just a sliver into level 78 and will be heading to Sholozar Basin next. There’s still quite a lot of content left to explore in this expansion and if it keeps getting better like it has been, perhaps I won’t be cancelling my account as soon as I thought I would be.
