Nov 23rd 2010 2:16PM Well, basically, the way I've always seen the game is that the story has been progressing ever since your character starts the game.
So you save the world. You help every zone. That affects the zone, and then you move on. You go to Outland. You save that desolate place. Then you go to Northrend.
It's not that everything happened while you were in Northrend; rather, the past 6 years of playing have all been spent over one long time line. Your character never went back to Elwynn Forest after saving it from Hogger at level 12. You never went to Plaguelands to help the druids revitalize it as best they could.
No, just as in what-I-would-assume a Mario game, you can't go back. They only make it so that you can go back to add to replay value. And to do all the things that you, in essence, had already done but never actually did on your data-wise character.
It's pretty simple. I think RPers just don't realize that. Like any story, their story is set at a specific period in time. It isn't a 1:1 ratio of RL:InGame. Now, if there's some kink in the storyline that I'm missing, let me know.
May 21st 2010 2:44PM How many is this for you? I've leveled two warriors to 80, 1 to 71, another to 63, one to 29 and a few to between 6 and 13. Lately I rolled an orc warrior from 1 to 80 on another realm, no heirlooms or anything. Just had a friend give me a few netherweave bags. Took up skinning and mining and had 6kg by the time I hit 80. After buying epic flying and Northrend flying. From level 10 to 80, took me 22 days. In the end, I realized Arms is the easiest way to level. The only problem was getting friends to run me for 2h axes... and even then, that only slowed me down. Of course, I was using TourGuide, so that probably sped it up a bit, but... uh... Good luck! Just wanted to comment on someone who might care. :)
Dec 30th 2009 12:38PM I have most of them, but I believe the Warcraft Archive has Blood and Honor, which I would like to read.
Nov 23rd 2009 8:43PM First thing I thought was, "That's too realistic-looking to be in-game." So, my guess is it's something about the Warcraft movie. But I'm an optimist. :(
Aug 12th 2009 10:17PM The dwarf POV jumped from the dwarves to the elf (I can't really
think of specific names at the moment, though I'm pretty sure it was
Vereesa. And I've never remembered any dwarf names...except King
Magni...wait, what was his last name? Bronzebeard?) and back and
forth and it confused me every time I read the section.
I think I actually tried to skip a few sections every now and then so I could
get to something that made sense. Then all the characters split up so
that you have Iridi, Krasus, Kalec, and the bad guys and everyone else
more or less, and it's just really unbearable.
I thought there was something wrong with me, such that I lost my ability to read, but
then I started reading college books and some other books and it felt
good. I'm just using this and Sunshine as an example. I can't read
certain books and styles, I guess. That and the other WoW books were
kind of hard to read, as it's just video game lore to me... Arthas
was really good though, as were the books about Thrall. Which makes
me believe that I just don't like the alliance. Oh well, rambled
Aug 12th 2009 8:17PM I might buy it just to add to my collection, but I couldn't bring myself to finish Night of the Dragon. I just can't stand the jumping between characters. That and I don't like the story of the dwarves, Iridi pisses me off, and Krasus is being almost as emo as Cloud Strife. But that's just me.
