That means my first experience back was playing Legion as a Demon Hunter. It did not go well. The story was fine but I didn't actually like abilities and the way the Demon Hunter class played. I did the entire intro which gets the Demon Hunter to level 100 and then I played enough of the expansion content to level up to 101... almost 102. But the class never clicked with me.
I didn't want to give up on my attempt to get back into WoW since I had just paid for the expansion and a month of game time so I moved on to the Paladin I had boosted.
You see, to make a Demon Hunter you need a level 100 character on the server that you want to make it on. I had no characters on the server my friends play on so I created a Paladin, which used to be my main alt, and boosted it to 100 with the free character boost I got in the expansion.
So I jumped over to that Paladin and it was ok but not great. It seemed like it would be a fun alt to have, just like I used to do with a Paladin. At this point I was about ready to give up and try a different MMO instead.
But then I thought... maybe I should just go back to my original character. He's the character I've used since Vanilla WoW and he's sitting right at the end of Cataclysm content. I figured I might as well give it a try.
And it clicked! I guess in WoW I'm just a Druid at heart. And I'm attached to that character too, which helps a lot. I don't know how long I'll play. I would guess less than the full month of game time. But I'm at least going to sampled modern day WoW and see how it goes.
