Getting Back Into World of Warcraft

After finishing up FFXV I had an itch to play an MMO so I bit the bullet and finally resubscribed to World of Warcraft.  It's been five or six years since I last played so I thought the best course of action would be to pick up the latest expansion and create the newest class at high level so I could jump right into the game.

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.


  1. Druids have been very good this expansion, IMO. Not necessarily in the DPS department at the very tippy-top (as far as I'm aware), but in overall fun. Questing as Bear is much improved on years past, and Moonkin is a blast with the Artifact you get later on.
