I wasn’t actually there at midnight on Tuesday. I’ve grown too old to stay up all night playing WoW; I need my sleep. (Plus, I was up early in the morning on Monday to make pizza for a departmental party, but that’s another story.) So, I can’t speak from any experience about what it was like at 12:01 Tuesday morning, but I feel pretty sure that the population of Gilneas skyrocketed in those first few minutes.
I haven’t even started my worgen character yet. I’ve been holding back to let the initial wave go by, but you can be sure that it won’t be long before another furry face joins the wolfpack roaming Azeroth. (And no, I will not be naming my worgen any of the names shown in that last panel– although if there were such a thing as a bard class I would so have a worgen bard named Rolf.)
