Around Azeroth: The golem of depression

"I feel pity for the forgotten places of Azeroth," writes submitter Arugadh of The Brotherhood of Iron on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A), who is coming back with a vengeance after several months absent from this column. "Leveling happens so fast, and zones speed by so quickly, that new players -- and even some old ones -- rarely have the chance to really get to know a zone and see all the wondrous things the devs have done. For instance, the 'Lite-Brite' cave in Un'Goro Crater, originally guarded by and the home of an extended Land of the Lost reference, is now guarded by sad and lonely rock golems who never have any visitors. When I leveled my lowbie hunter through there, the only other folks in the zone were a couple high-level ore farmers. Surely, this place of wondrous beauty is deserving of more time and attention, but like many such places in post-Cataclysm Azeroth, it's been abandoned and consigned to oblivion. The developers seem to have forgotten the joys of sending players to explore deep into a zone and its stories, instead substituting the race to the almighty endgame."
