Way back in January, I picked up a copy of the World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade expansion and gave my first impressions on it. Now, a whopping 8 months later, I’m finally level 70. It’s been one of the most fun, yet frustrating experiences of my life. I don’t game much anymore and all I really play is WoW, so finding the time to level for hours-on-end was difficult.
Being level 70 is a bit odd. No longer are you obligated to grind and quest for XP and gone is the joy of hitting a new level. In their place is the long trek to get attuned for Karazhan, becoming exalted with different factions, fighting hard-ass bosses and instances and so much more. PvP is a lot more challenging, especially in Arena, mostly due to the fact that everyone else has been 70 for months and is geared out in all epics.
To add to the grueling experiences, my server sucks. Anetheron is dead and I’m about to shell out $25 to transfer my Rogue to a more-populated server. At least there’s always PvP in the battlegrounds. That never gets old. If any of you have a good guild on a high-pop PvP server and you play Alliance, hit me up. I’m trying to switch.
Overall, the expansion is well worth the money. The question is, do I really feel like doing this all over again when Wrath of the Lich King comes out? Blah!
