I already had Loremaster, but I'm going through the remade zones to get the new quest achievements. After about ten hours worth of play time I'm almost done Eastern Kingdoms. The new quest chains are brilliant, it's amazing how streamline the zones are. No more hidden NPCs and seven spots in a zone you can pick up quests. There is certainly some kind of downside to that, but there are still achievements to encourage out-of-the-box exploration and it will definitely make questing faster for old hands and more intuitive and enjoyable and modern to new players. Cata is really bringing the game up to a fresh standard in a lot of ways, it almost feels like a new game.

Everyone get their sunflower pet?
Where do you get the pet?
From the new plants vs. ghouls thingy up in Hillsbrad.

Re: World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

I've got Thursday and Friday off, followed by my regular Sat and Sun off. Had something important to do at work Wednesday so I didn't want to take it off, and I figure Tuesday will be a miserable experience from a server reliability perspective and due to the starting zones being absolutely packed with people the entire day. Launch day for WOTLK wasn't very fun, I suspect they've learned a bit on the hardware side of things but there isn't anything you can do about 1000 nerds all trying to kill the same mobs.

Re: World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

Just ordered Cataclysm online, also bought myself a L'il Ragnaros pet. I had no idea he could also be used as a cooking fire!

Re: World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

I made one of each. I've played the Worgen up to level 8 or 9 so far. Haven't played the Gobbo yet. I've been spending my time leveling my Blood Elf Hunter.

I started playing WoW a couple years ago to please my wife who is a WoW fanatic. I have stopped and started so many times it's pathetic. My highest level char is a 45 Warrior. Can you believe that I have bought the Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, AND Cataclysm, but so far I haven't leveled up any characters far enough to actually enjoy the content from those expansions? Ha!

Re: World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

I was on a free trial of BC and got my Blood Elf Hunter up to 23...of course 5 of that 10 day trial was spent downloading and updating the game on my pc. I got another free trial...just regular WoW and I am trying to get my Night Elf Hunter as high as I can get em'...1 day in and a lvl 10. I only played 2 hours last night. I need to get BC, WotLK and CAT...someday.

Here's my honest take, after having spent the money already.

Unless you really, really, really want to play as a Blood Elf, don't bother buying the Burning Crusade until you're getting close to level 60.

Unless you really, really, really want to play as a Death Knight, don't get Wrath of the Lich King until you are getting close to level 70.

Unless you really, really, really want to play as a Goblin or a Worgen, don't get Cataclysm until you are getting close to level 80.

Re: World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

I prefer the Blood Elf...but I am happy playing my Night Elf. It will be a long while before I upgrade.

You can buy all three pre-Cata disks right now for about $20 on Blizzard.com, so it's not much of a risk picking up the expansions.

And I hit 85 last night at about 430 am! Happy day.

Re: World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

I quite enjoyed the ride to 85 on my fury warrior. Right now I'm treadmilling normals to gear up for heroics and leveling Blacksmithing so I can make my PvP set.

And I'm only 9 item levels shy of heroics.

Re: World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

Almost ready to raid, I've got a 336 average iLevel. Mostly 333 and 346 pieces, one 359 epic. Still need to get a better weapon, wand and boots though. All of them are 318 quest greens. Might try to get my hands on the crafted sword if the price is reasonable, but I haven't seen one on the AH. Might look for one tonight in /trade.

All in all I'm loving the expansion. I've done all the quest in the each of the new zones aside from Deepholm, which I'm about half way through. Next order of business will be to level my goblin warrior tank.

Re: World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

335 ilevel here and still haven't tried a heroic. I'm waiting till more of my guildies are ready.

I hear the heroics are really difficult, like BC heroics! I remember what that was like. I'm not in too much of a hurry to enter them until I've exhausted all other avenues of advancement.

In about a week I should have my weapon from the Tol Barad faction and my epic neck and belt from Ramkahen and Hyjal factions respectively and then, I'll be ready to raid.
