Normally by this time I am easily level capped, or very close. The first week is often a blur as I fly to the maximum level on a character. But this time, that’s not the case. Things have been live for nine days now and I don’t even have a character at 101 let alone 110. Time has been part of that, as we were a bit busy on the weekend when I would have had the most to devote to the game. But also I’ve just been puttering about and doing a bit at a time. Some of that was due to turning the Legendary chain of the Druid into a short story, but otherwise I’ve just been taking things in.
Unlike other occasions, I’m also doing it as spoiler free as absolutely possible. I haven’t been checking out any videos on YouTube and I’ve certainly avoided the forums (learned my lesson after a couple of major death spoilers). I’ve even gone so far as to stop reading blogs for the short term. I really do want to discover the expansion on my own. I feel like I will enjoy it more for what it is if I do so spoiler free and without the emotional input of others. Once I reach a certain point I will certainly play catchup, but for now I’m just going to stroll through the entrance and hide out in my den for a little while and just peek out at Azeroth.
