OMG!!! The Dark Portal is open!!!
Check out the World of Warcraft homepage. It appears the “world event” coordinating with the expansion has started. “Horrific creatures” are streaming out of the Portal. Defenders are urgently needed. Highlord Kruul is wandering the land – too much for NPC defenders, but apparently a “large and well-coordinated group of adventurers” might stand a chance.
Sounds fun and I’m glad they started the festivities early. You knew they were going to do something, but in the back of your mind you were wondering what the impact of a one-time, server-wide event might be (the opening of the AQ Gates serving as a bad example here). With events put into play a week before the expansion hits, hopefully this will give Blizzard techies time to evaluate the performance impact and take necessary steps so when I install on Wednesday night, I can actually play.
I wasn’t going to play my main tonight, but I might just have to take a ride down to Nethergarde Keep to see what the fuss is all about…
