Welcome to the part of Traveling Thoughts where I start to discuss things that I don’t actually have a lot of experience with. While I never made this apparent in previous posts (if I recall correctly), I was, at one point, a purely Horde player. When I first started out with the game, of course, I tried everything based on pure curiosity. When I got a groove for everything, it was basically all horde, except for the occasional draenei or gnome to spice it up. That said, compared to someone who’s never played World of Warcraft, I’ve played Alliance races quite often. Compared to what I’ve played within the Horde race, it’s a bite-size chunk of a gargantuan cookie. Continue reading “Traveling Thoughts on World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade (Teldrassil)”

Euripedes was the first character I ever made. That remains a fact. What I tend to remember more fondly, however, is the troll mage I made sometime afterwards. I even remember the name… which was… nevermind, I don’t remember what it was. It was some vowel-heavy gobbledygook. It was the first character I leveled to the level cap within the free trial period, and I sure was impressed with myself. I don’t remember if I made that troll again once getting the full game.

In the far-back year of 2006, I played World of Warcraft for the very first time. The first character I ever made was a tauren by the name of Euripedes, inspired by a character’s name from Gregor the Overlander. He was a hunter, and while I don’t recall how high of a level I got that specific iteration, I later remade him when I got the full game and was the highest-leveled character I had ever worked on to that point (mid-forties).

This will be a massive undertaking. This huge MMORPG, a game in which I have spent literal years of my life playing, has quite a bit of content to it. To have this be the next topic of my Traveling Thoughts series means I’m in it for the long haul. My Breath of the Wild series took over a year to write. This will likely take longer.

If one is familiar at all with open world RPGs, they’re likely familiar with the whole “I would’ve done the main quest faster if I didn’t do all the side quests first” mindset. Breath of the Wild gives every opportunity to incorporate this mindset with plenty of side quests in each area, and outside of general areas. Whether it be important locations, stables, or random characters out and about, Link gets to do things that range from fetch quests to stealth quests to… more fetch quests.
