|Horde attacking Alliance|
Anyway, the main point of my opening is to put across the big emphasis on the constantly growing war between the two opposing Alliance and Horde factions. Like I have mentioned in earlier posts, the story focuses a lot more now on the conflicts between the factions, and for me a lot of my quests are based upon it, at my current level of 32. If I am honest from what I have gathered so far, the Horde are so intent on a destructive path, for reasons I am still unaware of, that they have even begun attacking their own. I'm not sure what has sprung this sudden clash, although I haven't played in some time, so the story is really sucking me right in! It just feels great to be revisiting old feuds and seeing new ones created in the process. No more 'Alliance join with the Horde to fight a bigger cause' and all conflicts put aside!
Another wonder which is still floating around at the moment in my mind, is that maybe this is all to cover up (while leveling) some really devastating chains of events which are, and have already begun, to spring up...

So alongside from seeing a spam-ful of local defense alerts to show the horde attacking alliance bases, bringing on a few small pvp scenarios, leveling just keeps getting better and better! In my last post I was working my way to completing Ashenvale. Although I recieved a quest taking me onto Stonetalon Mountains. Seeing as I had done quite a bit within the current zone, and the next quest within it was green, I decided to move on. This was a rather weird feeling, which I will explain further later. Though for now I will just tell you a feature which was really 're-freshing' to the game/leveling. The convenience to have 'mobile quest completion/attaining' as I call it. This isn't for every quest, but a good chunk of my recent ones within the Stonetalon zone allowed me to use this. Basically you had a means of communication with the quest giver, i.e.A Gnomish radio device in this case, which as you can guess, allowed me to speak with the quest givers and complete/take on quests while on the go. So a very new medium to the game, which I found really cool!

So with much thought, I have decided that in my scenario, to just let it be. That means just going wherever the game takes me! The story will all pan out in it's own way. My own way! Unless I had the mind of a massive achievement whore to complete all the achievements in every zone (Which i really don't), let the game take you! If it was all linear and straight forward, I really doubt it would be so successful, of which many game designers have failed with! Another point, is that it leaves alternative routes for other characters you are leveling to keep the experience fresh and gives you things to come back to even when you hit the level cap. This all just proves how much content their really is now!
So with my little scenario covered (which you may find a 'rant'), I did eventually come to a conclusion with myself! Now faced with choices to; finish Ashenvale? Continue with Stonetalon Mountains? Move onto Southern Barrens or even Stranglethorn Vale? I'm going to choose my path, which I feel destines me for.. The Barrens (Southern)!
Thanks for reading!
(P.S. Just got the 250 quest achievement go me!)
Oh and like I said, to make up for the poor intro picture, here are some more extracts from my Leveling Album!
