|Corruption Runs Deep...|
With the world now wide open to our thirsty adventurer, Feignheart, we begin with a trip back to Stormwind to regain our strength and pick up our next scented trail for exploration. At first we couldn't for the life of us, find a starting place. However, that was until we made way through the city and up into Stormwind Keep. This found us receiving a quest, entitled - [My Son, The Prince], from the king, Varian Wrynn himself. Our mission was simple. Known for our past triumphs, we we're given the honour of taking the king's own son, Anduin Wrynn, under our wing, becoming a mentor as such, to meet the people of the city and bolster morals. Though with a highly curious, and daringly suspicious mind, the young prince had other ideas. Following a path of inner corruption we found ourselves uncovering many well kept and threatening secrets to the city and all it's people. Which all results in the revelation of The Twilights Hammer. These happen to be part of a vile death cult and workers for Deathwings aid. A very compelling questline which sees us on our way to the source of the chaos - The Twilight Highlands.
|The Horde Attack|
This rich woodland based landscape has a very unique feel to it. With it's bounding hills and varied settings, nothing quite matches it. Attention to detail while in this zone is a must. Though however you look at it, there are some brilliant shots just waiting to be admired. A personal Favourite.

What cropped up as a nice surprise while travelling through this zone, was the appearance of yet another gladiator ring. This time named 'The Crucible of Carnage'. Run by the same Goblin and Troll folk from Zul'Drak, you following the similar quest structure to kill every challenger you are put up against. Group is a must! Other high priority quests which we came across such as [Death Worthy of a Dragonmaw], which involved defeating 'Garosh the Pant Stealer' all increased the terror factor of the highlands. We also became involved in the organisation of a Dwarf wedding, with a real unexpected turn-out. This included constructing a song to be sung at the ceremony, while walking the bride, 'Fanny', down the isle.
|Battling the Twilight|
While we ventured across the land, we once again came into contact with the Red Dragonflight once. Meeting with Queen Alexstrasza after an intense and blood-pumping battle. This leads to formulating a plan to bring an end to Deathwing himself. All of which puts you right in front of the action with a long line of cinematics to show the unravelling of the Dragonflights fight against the Destroyer. Though, as expected, none of this brought down the mighty tyrant as he went on to continue his reign of chaos. However, other than a mighty battle between the two, I will keep spoilers to a minimum for any who have yet to experience the display. Also, we came across another culprit in the destruction. This happens to be a schizophrenic two-headed monstrosity named Cho'Gall.
Anyway, after a roller coaster ride through a mine, becoming [King of The Mountain] and being [Consumed by Nightmares], it's time for Feighnheart and myself to depart and construct our next move.
Until next time,
