Our characters get a real workout just from standing around idle.

In the inter-expansion doldrums I’ve been leveling up some alts.  Taking my worgen druid through Grizzly Hills was a bit of a jarring experience.  I kept wanting to tell the NPCs “That’s racist!”

AFR #286 – Distaff dissed

If you’re a female lore figure in World of Warcraft, expect to have your family and friends brutally slaughtered in front of your eyes.  It’s a rite of passage, like getting your driver’s license.

Even Donna, the little girl in Stormwind, is on her own child-sized version of a rampage of revenge against William for stealing her dolly.  It’s like Blizzard doesn’t know what else to do with female characters.  (Other than, of course, have them pop out a baby or two and then disappear entirely.)

AFR #285 – Then and now

Yeah, so apparently I’ve decided that Blizzard is a big blue dot with an attitude.  /shrug

I’m really happy that Blizzard has changed its mind about things like player housing and revisiting Outland.  I’m looking forward to seeing how they’ll handle both of those things.  I’m not terribly excited about 90-boosts, but I’ve got nothing against them either.  On the whole, I’d say Blizzard is on the right track for the next expansion.

But Blizzard has been saying for years now that they want to get expansions out on a faster schedule.  All through Mists they were doing a great job getting patches out quickly.  It’s a little jarring now to face potentially being stuck in the same content for over a year.
