Spoilers for Operation: Shieldwall quests to follow
I wrote how a race change changed the way I viewed the Horde
, especially the Dominance Offensive
questing. Well, turnabout is fair play, and so I went and got my worgen through the Operation: Shieldwall
quests up to the events in Dalaran. And it's funny, because I expected it to feel different, and it did. But not quite the way I'd expected.
At the end of today's questing, I had many conflicting feelings. As Matthew Rossi, the guy who writes these posts, I was deeply
troubled by what I did in Dalaran. This was not a case of a rational, cool-thinking commander giving good orders, this was a case of someone pushed too far finally snapping. The actions I took at the behest of two deeply aggrieved leaders left me with a sour taste in my mouth, when I stopped to reflect upon them.
But while I was playing? My worgen had absolutely no
compunctions. Never before have I done things that, as a player I felt were wrong, but as a character I felt were absolutely right. An eye for an eye may leave the whole world blind, but doing nothing just leaves me
with a missing eye.
Behind the cut I'm going into details, and those details will be chock full of spoilers. You've been warned.
