You're implying the game isn't boring as-is.

The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:
1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.

Boring. Empty.

Someone tell me about a magical moment the first time you played Burning Crusade.

The most magical moment I had in first time playing Burning Crusade was when I ganked my first blood elf, spat on the corpse and teabagged it over and over again.

Just wandering around Quel'thalas for the sheer beauty of it.

Fighting Dimensius alongside the ethereal forces.

Mine was summoning some jackass who demanded a summon to kara down to the bottom of the upside down sinners room and forcing him to spirit rez.

Shadow Orb

I must say getting through the Dark Portal for the first time and seeing theses demons fighting right in my face was one of the most amazing moments I had in the game.

And that's one thing the game always does right: the opening. Going through the Dark Portal, sailing to the Howling Fjord as Alliance, Ozumat sinking our ship in Vashj'ir, destroying Garrosh'ar Point and destroying the Dark Portal. Theses are all pretty strong starts for the expansion.

I was playing a Dwarf Hunter and I ran all the way to the Outland side of the Dark Portal. The highest I ever got with him was level 28.


Are there any tribes of Tauren not in the Horde that aren't Grimtotem?

More recently I've been to the Portal. I just can't cross through.

(Running at Level 20 and Level 28 probably gets you killed an equal amount of times.)

I ran from Shattrath. I was portal'd there and didn't want to waste it. Shattrath was amazing the first time I saw it. The same goes for the Dark Portal looming in the distance as I ran wearily through Hellfire.

Like everyone else, crossing through the Dark Portal for the first time. I really enjoyed leveling through Azeroth, but the entire time I was looking forward to Outland. Riding my mount from Darkshire to the Dark Portal was probably one of the most exciting things I'd done at that point due to all my anticipation of Outland. Crossing over and seeing that giant battle with the Legion, followed by the flight to Honor Hold over the devastated Hellfire Peninsula was everything I had thought it would be.

Another memorable part was when I first got to Shadowmoon Valley and started questing there. Most people seem to prefer Netherstorm, but for me it was Shadowmoon all the way. The music, ambiance, and the idea of that fel-corrupted nightmare of a landscape got me in all the right places.

I miss Burning Crusade

Nagrand was breathtaking. But as far as what stuck with me about BC, it was the blood elf leveling experience, which became the best low-level zones at the time. Sure Outland was the land of mystery that allowed us to see the homeworld orcs for the first time - fuck off draenei and your retcons! - but the blood elf content showed us Quel'thalas and Zul'aman. And through this, we got Lament of the Highborne, which was an absolute gem of story content.

Oronok and his sons were so much more like what the Earthen Ring should've been in Cata.

Blood Elves before the community thought of them as silly rainbow loving Elves.

There's that. The Earthen Ring would've definitely been a lot cooler with non-Shaman agents that go around fucking up their enemies on behalf of elder shaman and stuff.

The thing I liked most about Oronok and the brothers Torn-heart was the different personalities involved. They all had their own little stories, it felt like. They were family but they were their own people. Something that Blizzard seems to have forgotten how to write. Nowadays most orcs are just a younger version of their fathers.

When you find him, tell him this: "We spill blood for just cause." It will let him know that you are a friend to Torn-heart and prevent your premature death.

While Ar'tor is a hunter of remarkable skill and an expert tracker, I fear that he may be in over his head this time. Illidari Point is the proving grounds for Illidan's demons. These are demons that left the Burning Legion to join the Betrayer!

Travel to Illidari Point and find Ar'tor, <name>.

Now a confident and powerful orc, he has taken to recovering the most guarded piece of the cipher.

Find Borak hiding near Eclipse Point, far to the south. He watches from the shadows of the bridge.
Really disappointed we never saw more of Oronok, Borak, or Grom'tor. Or Jorin, for that matter. (I mean, Kilrath made an appearance in Northrend, ffs. Why not any of the others? Blizzard has perfectly good orc characters like Oronok, Borak, Grom'tor, Jorin, Gorgonna, etc. sitting on the backburner and they do nothing with them.)

I agree, and would even go as far as to say that I think the Quel'thalas/Ghostlands starting experience is the best in-game to date. Most of the Horde characters I've ever levelled have been travelling to the Ghostlands to get phat loots and fast-paced quests from level 10 to 20. Even today with heirlooms and guild perks I take new characters to the Ghostlands just out of routine.

I never liked the Ghostlands. I tend to like dark forest zones like Silverpine, Ashenvale, etc. but Ghostlands was just.... eugh. Doesn't look good to my eyes. The combination of Scourge, troll, and night elf just didn't jive well with me, either.

Eversong was alright but I felt like the zone had you walking around from one edge of the map to the other and then back again too many times. Durotar, Mulgore, and Tirisfal Glades remain my favorites.
