For The Horde
This weekend I rolled a Blood Elf hunter, and played her up to level twenty. Blood elf because I haven’t seen any of their quests yet (aside from a peek into the belf starting area at the beginning of TBC, where I was turned off by the bright Candyland feel and never went back), and hunter because there are no rich mains Horde-side to bankroll or boost her. She needed to be good at soloing and grinding, which hunters excel at.
And I totally loved her, despite the broken bow-drawing animation. (Blizz, really! Who on earth authorized that spastic motion as being ready for primetime? Back to the drawing board!) I rolled her on a roleplaying server, and although I may not play her up to 70, I’d like to spend some time rp’ing the cutest, meanest girl ever…if you’re on Moonglade, watch for a skinny belf with big, blonde hair killing kittycats. That’s her. :)
Then again, maybe I’ll go Horde, and make her a main. It’s really tempting. What about you – if you were a diehard Alliance or Horde player, have you ever abdicated to the other side? Or do you have mains on both sides?
I do have a lonely troll rogue, languishing at a twinked-out level 29. I’m thinking about transferring her to the same server, and levelling them both. I love trolls – they look so cool, and they have the best dances, the best emotes. They rock.
Although there are obviously gorgeous areas Alliance-side, I’ve seen those quests again and again. I love the look and feel of the Barrens, and Undercity is very Tim Burtonesque (although I am perpetually lost there). Going Horde would bring a new feel to the game.
What are your preferences? For the Horde, or Alliance born and bred?
