I’ve been playing the new Wrath of the Lich King expansion since I picked my Collector’s Edition (squeee!!) up on Thursday and it’s amazing. Absolutely awesome. It’s no secret I <3 WoW but I’m just floored at how beautifully rendered it is. The zones are quite large and the way they look adds to this massive feeling you get riding through them. Sure, I’m still only level 70 while there are already a few level 80s running around on my server.. but I’m taking my time to explore and just really immerse myself into the game. There’s a decidedly darker feeling in this expansion pack as you make your way through the start areas.. sure there are the usual silly things but I like this slightly less fantasy take on the game. I actually was really taken aback at how emotional I felt doing some of the quests in the Howling Fjord. So far my favorite zone is definitely Crystalsong Forest. It is just stunning and the music is so beautiful. I could spend all day sitting at Windrunner’s Overlook staring into the forest. It’s geeky, but I really felt calm and serene here…. even though I was chased by every mob in the general area lol. :P
I want these trees in SL.
