I didn’t get to 55 land night, but I did wrap up just a hair over 54, which is still pretty good. After wrapping up some stuff in Searing Gorge, I flew around for a bit, picking up quests to be done in Un’Goro Crater. Obviously, this is a zone I hadn’t been in before, and I was pleased by it, because it contains Huge Honking Dinosaurs. Elite ones, no less. It’s a steaming jungle with a volcano in the center, inhabited by giant apes, weird fauna and the aforementioned dinosaurs. I was hoping for a Lost World sort of atmosphere (which various places in Azeroth try to convey, to limited success,) and I got it.
Bag space is a serious problem right now, though. The Un’Goro quest content is essentially a large number of overlapping collection quests, all of which hog a lot of bag space, and combined with the trash drops and the absurd amount of stuff I’m carrying around anyway. I have a set of Netherweave Bags and I can’t do a single cycle of questing without filling them up past overflowing. Obviously I need to manage this better – I’m not sure if there even are bigger bags in the game.
I think that last night I saw a blue item drop from a random garbage mob for the first time. Then I got another one. Both pieces went right on the AH, as neither was very useful to me, but it’s cool to see blue stuff drop at last.
I am at the point where I can actually go anywhere in Old World Azeroth, at least if I use the nominal levels of the zones as my guide. Mere levels away from Outland, if I choose to go at 58. I’m not sure I will, though – I suspect that there will still be stuff in the Old World that I want to see before heading there; by my count there are eight Old World zones I have never been to (with any character,) and the guide I’m using takes me to all of them.
