These days I feel like I’m gaming with one foot in WoW Classic and the other in Burning Crusade Classic. I’m invested in the journey of my character in the old Azeroth and all that that entails, but I’m also preparing mentally and otherwise for BCC. Honestly, the pre-patch with Draenei can’t come soon enough. I need my space goat!
But I’ve got miles to go before I can sleep at level 60. I’ve hit 32, which isn’t nothing, and I’m starting to get hopeful for seeing an actual mount in my lifetime here. Meanwhile, my pets and I have been crisscrossing the world in an attempt to get those XP-rich quests done and maybe make a buck or two along the way.
Since I’ve been doing so many quests, I’ve noticed that these weren’t as boring or static as my memory once told me. I’ve been surprised on many occasions by quests that throw a wrench into the regular formula by triggering scripts or tossing challenging fights at me that I wasn’t prepared for.
Quests of all varieties really felt novel when WoW originally launched. I’d never really experienced an MMO with them — at least, not with interesting stories and personalities behind them. Some of that, not all, but some, holds up in 2021.
And of course, the best sight in WoW Classic is always a treasure chest just hanging out somewhere on the landscape. You never know what these bad boys hold! I know, mostly it’s nothing really that great, but I still get so excited about them even so.
That’s why you must always check the outhouses and bathrooms, boys and girls. Toilet treasure is no joke.
