Desolace gets such a bad rap.And believe it or not, Nick and everyone else who bad-mouths it, I am going to miss it.Early in my playing of the game, I came to the conclusion that Desolace would be the best place to go for Mithril mining and began to make forays into there as early as level 23 or so. I was struck by how the zone was so different from every other one -- it looked like the surface of the Moon! And of course, the challenge I faced by being someplace too high in level for me always made my excursions exciting ones.The centaur camps, the remains of Giant Kodos, the pools of rusty-looking water, the Mannoroc coven (or whatever that group of demons is called). Yes, I will miss this zone more than any other one in the game (though I am looking forward to its facelift).I often hear people complain about the quests in Desolace, which I fail to understand. There are three quest chains, involving the demons, the naga, and the orc citadel, that can all be run through in a couple of hours. In fact, I have sent every one of my alts here just to bang out these ten or so quests. I especially enjoy fighting underwater on the reef with all the naga, and the island you swim out to for the treasure chest.Desolace, you will be missed!(by me at least)

When I leveled my Blood Elf Pally (this was before the XP bump) I managed to level to 70 (this was before Wrath) without doing a single bit of questing in Tarren Mill or Stranglethorn Vale. I'm on a PvP server and they are both nightmare areas for ganking. One of the zones that made skipping the other zones possible was Desolace. Count me as a fan....Krickhttp://www.tankadin.com
