Fantastic article as always!But all this does raise a concern for me. (And I know it's a bit off topic.) The Hyjal area seems very deep in Night Elf lore, but what about the Horde side? Has anyone leveled up in Hyjal yet in the beta there on the Horde? The history and lore in Hyjal seems very strong for the alliance side. I hope the horde sides story there is equal as strong, or at the very least not vauge series of quests.

Yep - I leveled on Horde side on my main that I copied over. It's not that Hyjal is steeped in night elf lore, it's that the Ancients themselves were very much a night elf thing for the most part. Goldrinn/Lo'gosh is worshiped by many, many races in various forms, including the orcs. The Guardians of Hyjal are a neutral faction, and the events that play out in Hyjal are neither Alliance or Horde weighted, playing as a Horde player I felt I was making a impact and it didn't really matter that I was Horde at all. Don't worry about the Alliance vs. Horde lore debacle - from what I have seen so far in the beta, both sides have HUGE AMOUNTS of new stories and lore to discover.

I REALLY, REALLY dream that Blizz bring the Druid's Tree Form back and the new model will be a "Ancient of Lore" or maybe a "Wandering Protector".
