Third (and final) Impressions

So Megeara has finally dinged 80. I've taken a long time, and effectively levelled through the whole of Northrend without setting foot inside an instance. This is basically because I'm a total slacker, but also because I've been levelling Nidhoggur, my holy priest, of whom more at a later date.

I found levelling a bit slower than the Burning Crusade, which isn't a bad thing, as I vastly prefer levelling to dailies. And many of the quests were pretty inventive - unlike some other people, I enjoyed the Wrathgate event, and having Arthas pop up periodically.

High Points for me:

Warning: some assembly required

I loved this quest. controlling abominations and then exploding them in showers of blood guts and filth to kill off some folk you've never heard of. What's not to like?

Did you think we had forgotten? Did you think we had forgiven?

It would have been fantastic to be able to join Grand Alchemist Putress in betraying both the Horde and the Alliance at the Wrathgate. I'm not asking for the forsaken to become a whole new faction (though that would be great) but it would have been nice to pick sides in the retaking of the undercity. I'm on an RP realm, and Megeara is an undead alchemist. I want to be Putress, damn it! Mind you, it appears that I'll be able to wear his armour, even if I have to kill Yogg-saron himself for the shoulders. And why does he have a girl's name?

I'm sure there's more, but those two stick in my mind.
