The mention of Dragonblight brought back a moment for me. When WOTLK first opened I brought my Human Paladin to the Borean Tundra on the boat. After questing there for awhile I decided I wanted to check out the Howling Fjord. In order to fly from one side of Northrend to the other (this was before I got cold weather flying) you had to get all the flight paths in between. So my pally set off on an epic journey across Northrend. It was great! My pally had to outrun all sort of mobs (she was quite surprised upon riding into a fort full of Scarlet Onslaught!) but the best was when she got to Wintergarde Keep. She didn't come in the "safe" way. Instead she rode straight up through a bunch of Scourge. But did they take my brave Level 71 Paladin down? Heck no! She stood and fought them! Right up to the gates of the Keep itself! It was so grand!Then she kept going and had to fight off Orcs near Conquest Hold before finally getting Valgarde in Howling Fjord, where legions of Vrykul awaited her! I love the fact that you have to travel and explore the world in this game. Too many other games just port you here and there and you never feel as if you are part of a greater world. Not so in WoW. In fact, I think the biggest mistake was when they made the ship go from Darkshore to Stormwind instead of making you go to Menethil and traveling to Stormwind via Dun Morogh and Ironforge. Those were the days! I still remember having to get through that tunnel filled with level 20 Orcs as a level 4!

An epic tale indeed! My pally salutes yours.
