The warfront is up for the Horde side, and I did two runs with both of my toons.
The experience is different from Arathi – for whatever reason I expected to start at the goblin platform and clear towards south. I’ve totally forgotten patch notes – the experience is the same as with Alliance. We go in the very same direction from the very same point in Ruins of Auberdine.
I’d say that I am not moved to the very least by the undead and brainwashed dark rangers guiding the assault. What a surprise, huh :) At least there are goblins to which I am attuned (as you know, both of my Hordies are goblins). But frankly as you hear Nathanos shouting ‘Blight it all!’ I simply want to go in the corner and get some sleep, or even sabotage my own troops :) Sira the Brainwashed Undead is also not convincing in the very least. So no, I’m not running this warfront with the pleasure – fighting for the Alliance here feels right.
Altar of the Storms offers some cool options though. The Night Elves obviously offer to turn you into some druids, and that’s what I hate to associate myself with – I always played Balance with a glyph of stars. The Horde side offers an awesomesauce choice of driving a goblin mecha, guiding an abomination (my love ever since Warcraft 3 RTS) and a third option – probably alchemists, I’m not sure.
I think it is high time to get busy with achievements – capturing all the flag points, executing rare kill events, hiring all types of troops, and at Darkshore – turning into every type of creature through Altar of the Storms. I’d better not put them off until expansion end.
