Snark spoken here

It’s good to be a death Knight

While playing my death knight, I got to become the persona of evil. I slaughtered soldiers, civilians, peasants and priests. I’ve shot a cannon at a shore full of soldiers with their own weaponry. I’ve spoken with the lich king and gotten some nifty gear. I’ve killed innocent prisoners, and rode a frost wyrvern as I set fire to a town. 

The quests for the death knight raise the bar for any type of game, MMO or otherwise. Had I not added him to my guild already, I’d start another one just to go through them again. 

And, I’m happy to report, the only major glitch I’ve come across was the long, long queue to get in the game. There was little lag, only one disconnect and some good teamwork. Given all the problems that were experiences over the past few weeks, this comes as a relief. I’ve got some new screenshots I’ll post later tonight or in the morning, as I’m in another damn queue.

Feeling the Wrath

Okay, so for the first time in decades, I felt like a little kid on Christmas morning, waiting for Mom and Dad to wake up. I woke up far earlier than was probably healthy, and hopped the bus to go over to Target to get my copy of Wrath of the Lich King. Aside from a woman who offered to show me her breasts for a dollar (I declined, as she would have had to roll her pant legs up to do so, and besides she said that to everyone in the seats around me)the trip was uneventful. I picked up my copy, and was surprised to see a few others also waiting for the store to open and grab their copy. 

It’s now installing, and once that finishes and gets patched, I’ll dlve in and play a Death Knight. I’ll update later on and share my experiences.

Edited to add a pic of myself and the Lich King. My Death Knight is Khonstantine.
