When I was leveling to 85, I just did Vashj'ir because I promised myself I'd wouldn't jump into Hyjal right away. If I did, then I never would have done Vashj'ir.First off, I typed in guild chat that my character loved being back on land after spending what would have been several days underwater, which made everyone laugh. But it took me a while to get into the story as the cultist forces were already at Nordrassil and we were fighting an uphill battle to secure the World Tree.It took me 7 hours to blaze through Hyjal to its completion(the same with Vashj'ir) and I loved the story. Especially the return of Jarod Shadowsong, who my family liked after reading the War of the Ancients and helping him was really cool.Though I loved most of the questing despite it being near launch day, the only beef I had with it was the fact you could only get one of the two jouster pets. I'm kinda hoping with patch 4.2 that you get a rare daily that allows you to get the other pet even if you had to do something like the Rock Lover Achievement, but not holding my breath on that one.The biggest problem I had with the story was resurrecting the Ancients. They've been dead for thousands of years(and a few years for Cenarius), but with a couple of quest chains, you can bring them back to life. Wait! If it was this easy why were they not resurrected thousands of years ago? They'd been a great help in the Third War. I'm just saying.But all-in-all, It was a great story and I can't wait to do the 4.2 dailies for they sound like a lot of fun and watching Hyjal being fully healed is also cool for it feels like we actually have an impact on the world. Not to mention taking Fandral Staghelm's head...I wanted to slay him since I first met him in Old World for the first time and now I can. :)
