So with quests heading off to both zones I decided. As you can see above, Un'Goro Crater it was! Mainly because the name seemed appealing to me, and I hadn't been to the zone in my previous experiences.
Anyway, first impressions were just a the name states. A crater. You literally find yourself, upon entering the zone, venturing down and down until you reach ground level, which is full of life compared to previous area of Tanaris. The idea I get from this zone, is Jurassic Park. It really is a prehistoric rain forest, especially with the wandering elite dinosaurs looking for their next meal (As shown in the screenshots above)! The nature of this zone, with all it's cover of hanging trees, blocked me from getting a wide screenshot of the zone. So that just gives everyone somewhere to explore, if they haven't already!
With this zone, I also noticed a sheer amount of items to gather. Which you eventually find can be handed in, to gain stat increases etc while in the area. This is also a point I have noticed with many of the zones. Though most have always had unique features to aid you while in the respective areas, I never paid much attention to them. Even if you are not into spending time gathering things unnecessarily, the advantages you gain can really make a difference. From XP increases, to stat increases, to speed increases for example. To add, most of bonuses you gain while questing anyway. So no need to go too far out of your way when leveling!

Half way through the zone, I realised that I was in dire need of visiting the Hunter Trainer! Here are some of the skills I picked up:
- Mail Specialization - Increases Agility by 5% when wearing ONLY mail armour. (Which I see as a neat way of making sure we stick to hunter orientated gear)
- Track Giants
- Ice Trap - When triggered, lies down a nice AoE slowing affect for a period of time. (Great when paired with explosive trap!
- Trap Launcher - As the name says, this really cool ability allows you to launch one trap anywhere within a certain range. (The possibilities are endless)

Now hitting 53 from recieveing an EXTRAORDINARY amount of XP from the battle, which also has no effect on rested XP either, I went back to the ineledgible quest. Only to find out, it was still greyed out! So back to the thinking hat. This brought me to recalling a Hero's board in Darnassus, which gave quests leading to zones at your level.
But until next time in the adventures on Feighheart...
Oh and one last point! The votes are in! If you hadn't noticed, at the bottom of this blog, I have held a small poll. The question was, 'What class will you be rolling in cataclysm?' The results are in, and here are the results:
- Paladin (With 3)
- Warrior tied with Mage (With 2)
- Every other class having 1 vote!
