After 15 months away, I've been logging in to World of Warcraft a bit lately. There is actually a surprising amount of content that I have missed including the whole Korthia / Chains of Domination storyline and the new Zereth Mortis storyline. The catch-up mechanics seem to be pretty good so far. They've done a nice job of adding clips and little cut scenes to help you better understand how you got to where you are now.
From what I've seen so far, it feels like they're doing a decent job of trying to pull together and wrap up some plot strings that have been dangling out there for the last few expansions now, so hopefully things can start somewhat fresh with the next expansion (although I think we're still ignoring the giant sword sticking out of Silithius)
I've been trying to get into LFR for the raid that I missed, but there don't seem to be many people doing that, so I haven't had any luck so far. I need to grab a bit more gear from Zereth Mortis world quests in order to be able to run the new LFR raid, but I'd like to see the old ones at some point.
At this point, I'm only playing on my warlock, and have been sticking with Destruction so far. It feels a bit squishier than I remember, but that may just be that I'm not quite geared enough yet. I think I'm still outfitted mostly in the blues you needed to get access to Castle Nathria LFR, although I've been steadily upgrading those with rewards you get from the Zereth Mortis quests. I am going back and running the Korthia campaign quests just to unlock flying, and then I'll look at how to unlock flying in Zereth Mortis.
As mentioned previously, I have gone back and started to work on leveling my Astrologian again. That job is currently sitting at level 66. And because I don't really like healing the level 50+ dungeons, I'm simultaneously working Red Mage through the daily leveling roulette. I really just started that today.
I still have been debating the housing situation, but I think I've decided that I'll be better off just grabbing an apartment somewhere instead. Particularly given my tendency to spend time away from specific games.
That's the update for now. I'll try to provide additional feedback on WoW Patch 9.2.5 in next week's update.
