[World of Warcraft] We revisited our Blood Elves last night with more problems. At first, the server was offline for some urgent rolling restarts. After the server appeared to be back online, it still kicked us out over and over. Finally we were able to get back on, but there was a lot of issues. Things like looting mobs and talking to quest NPCs took quite a bit of time to complete. We got disconnected a few times but it seemed like after about 30 minutes things settled down.
We did several quests, fighting a nice variety of new mobs. One quest gave us a 4 slot bag as a reward which was really nice. We did a quest that sent us into Falthrien Academy. I really enjoyed that place because it reminded me so much of some of the structures in Asheron’s Call 2. It was a sort of homecoming in a way.
We spent some time talking to my brother, who took time out from his quest for 70 (*level 68 today). My wife found herself with a player that randomly chose her as his object of affection for a while. Eventually he told her he was 15 (almost 16!) and when she told him that she graduated from high school when he was born, he decided the most appropriate response was to say “Let’s have sex!” and he took off his clothes and started dancing. Good times. We logged out at level 5.
* My brother wanted to make it clear that he is not powerleveling like the French dude. He is doing it the old fashioned way, by playing all day and all night.
