I just finished playing through most of Hyjal for the second time today. I got my night elf mage through the part where the Regrowth happens, so that she can do the daily quests when 4.2 hits. And I have to say, the zone affected my perception of my character in ways that I didn't expect.I'm a roleplayer at heart, and I tend to get into my characters' heads as I play, see how they react to what's going on, and so forth. So as a fire mage, my young night elf realized a few things about herself thanks to this zone. She realized how much she'd missed out on by rejecting the ways of nature that her people usually focus on. She realized that she had a place among her people, despite bailing when she was young (level 1) to go study with the gnomes. And I foresee that, when dealing with the druids of the flame in 4.2, she'll realize that she could have ended up like them if she hadn't taken up the arcane.So, yeah. Seeing the through this character's eyes really made it something different for me. This character, who's never used anything but mechanical mounts, will attain the Flameward Hippogryph after the new patch hits, and use it proudly. ^_^I've also done the entire zone with my human hunter, but he's kind of a grim bounty hunter with a black sense of humor, so pulling one over on the Twilight Cult with the speech was a personal high point for him. Bwa ha ha.

Thats really good roleplay. If you like the night elf mage thing, read Kanak's War of the Ancients. And kudos to being a fire mage. :D Ain't it fun?

@ Matthew -Heh, thank you. I haven't been able to do any tabletop RPGs recently (stupid real life getting in the way of gaming), so I find myself thinking like my WoW characters more and more. Go figure. ^_^ And I've read too much about Knaak's writing and the things he did to continuity in the War of the Ancients books to want to read them. Oi.But yes, being a fire mage is ridiculously fun. Bwa ha ha!
