November 6, 2008

Has it really been a week? Apologies to my readers and my poor neglected blog. With an World Series win and a Presidential Election in one week, something’s gotta give.

So there’s not much to blog about on the WoW front on my end, other than…

1) One week ’til the expansion! woot! Mine is preordered, and

2) Yesterday we preordered the Collector’s Edition for my guy. With that we’ll get

  • World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King on DVD-ROM.
  • The Art of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, a 208-page book featuring never-before-seen images from the game.
  • An exclusive in-game pet: Frosty, the baby frost wyrm.
  • A behind-the-scenes DVD containing over an hour of developer interviews, the Wrath of the Lich King intro cinematic with director’s commentary, and more.
  • The official soundtrack CD, containing 21 epic tracks from the game, along with exclusive bonus tracks.
  • A mouse pad featuring a map of the newly opened continent of Northrend.
  • Two World of Warcraft Trading Card Game March of the Legion™ starter decks, along with two exclusive cards available only in the Collector’s Edition.

(All that info courtesy of the official WoTLK site)

At the hefty price of $69.95 plus shipping (we ordered it through for release date delivery – I’ll let you know how that goes) we’re only getting one. I can do without the pet, and I’ll have access to the rest of the stuff.

So what have I been doing? Exploring. I wanted to make sure that before Northrend opened up, I saw everything there was to see on the old world and in Outland. So for the last week I’ve been riding my magic broom and discovering.

It’s pretty embarrassing how FEW places I’ve actually seen. Maybe it’s just a testament to how large our worlds are. In any case, a few minutes ago I picked up the Kalimdor exploration achievement. I’m well on my way to getting the “The Explorer” title.


The trickiest part of Kalimdor was exploring Teldrassil and Bloodmyst/Azuremyst Islands. The level 75 elite guards in Darnassus got me good.

This weekend I’m going to run some heroics with the guild to get back in the swing of swinging The Light. My guy’s signed up for Zul’Aman. I *should* go, but I so hate the troll instances…

Safe travels!
