An Ex-Gnome Tank's World

Gnomeregan Redux

November 17th, 2008 Posted in Wrath of the Lich King

So, level 72 now. What have I learned so far about the Lich King and his plan to destroy the world?

Very little, I’m afraid.

Instead I’ve been finding out about the origin of the Gnomish race, by following the questlines around the Fizzcrank Airstrip. It feels like Gnomeregan as it ought to have been, very much more polished than any of the old-world stuff, and I highly enjoyed it.

Similarly the Coldarra quests. They all felt very well put together, feeding into The Nexus, which I’ve now run 3 times (and only on the third did I have any quests). Once you know the storyline behind the place it feels a lot more rich, so I’m going to put some effort into getting as many instance quests as I can before venturing into the remaining dungeons.

Oh, and Dalaran is awesome. It feels a lot more like a city than Shattrath ever did. Now all I need is my flying mount back and I’ll be set…

    When I got my flyer back it was just incredible to fly around and see the world. Icecrown is just amazing looking and scary to me. It looks like Mordor on steroids with snow.

    I did those gnome quests and they were fun. Blizz really did a good job of spicing up the quests and storylines.

    I’m happy to hear that the Borean Tundra is as fun and well put together as the Howling Fjord. I have loved just about every quest chain there. There are some really funny ones on Scalawag Point, some excellent chains near Utgarde Keep, and lots of amazing views.

    My hunter just leveled 72, but I’m not in a hurry – I’m really enjoying the ride.
