The Other Side of the Coin
February 23, 2015 4 Comments
I am, and have always been an Alliance player. It’s not that I have any grudge against the Horde, I’ve just played with people that have also always played Alliance. I’m primarily a PvE player, and I’ve thoroughly played through most if not all of the Alliance quest-lines over the years. I know practically nothing about the Horde side, and I intend to rectify that issue.
I’m not going to faction change any of my characters, but I did recently have an idea. Patch 6.1 and the new heirloom system will make it very easy to roll a new Horde Rogue. I intend to level through at least one character Horde-side in this patch, maybe more. I haven’t leveled a Rogue from scratch since BC, and if nothing else, it will help me write and update a lot of very out of date material on the blog. I don’t foresee any live-streams (I think watching me level would be less than exciting), but I do plan on blogging about the experience. I could use a little help getting started though.
I am full on Lightbringer and I don’t want to delete any characters to make room. I want to know if anyone could recommend a good US server (PvE or PvP) that has a healthy population of Horde Players, but isn’t overcrowded. Also, I really am interested in learning more about the Horde culture and lore. If there are any zones or quest hubs that are unique to the Horde side that I should go out of my way to see, let me know. Finally, does anyone have a race recommendation? The easy choice would be Goblin, as I see them as the Gnome equivalent, but I’m open to anything, excepting Pandaren. Nothing against Pandas, but I’ve already seen that starting zone.
Anyway, I’m excited to get this started soon, so let me know if you have any suggestions that would help.
P.S. – Wouldn’t a BoA (Unique) 16 slot bag be a great addition to the game?
