exploring World Of Warcraft's spooky afterlife

 

Over the last 16 years, World Of Warcraft has fostered an expansive universe that offers an immersive and captivating experience for those who enjoy games with rich lore and a wide range of unique settings. The new addition of the Shadowlands expansion further enriches what World Of Warcraft as a game can offer, while also being conveniently apposite as Halloween approaches.To get more news about buy gold wow classic, you can visit lootwowgold official website.

Before setting off on my adventure into the realm-beyond-death, I made sure to grab some Hallow's End essentials which are only available during the current season. Questing with a pumpkin on my head and a broomstick mount felt very appropriate and not at all silly. These items may not offer me any extra health points or a speed boost, but I did look ghoulishly fashionable.

World Of Warcraft includes year-round seasonal special events which add another dimension to the game. In this case Hallow's End will run up until 1st November - just in time for the release of the anticipated 9.1.5 patch. Although these seasonal events are not exclusive to Shadowlands you can pick up some entertaining items from the Hallow's End activities to use as you quest through the new expansion.Hallow's End offers ‘tricky treat' appropriate costumes for your character, a range of fun, spooky quests, and an exclusive, eldritch dungeon called The Headless Horseman. For the minority of very lucky players, completing this dungeon could even mean that you ride off with the Horseman's steed!

My favourite item is the Hallowed Wand, which makes an unsuspecting party member look like an abomination NPC. As an Alliance faction player, I am also partial to throwing tricky treat pumpkins at blood elves on the enemy Horde side faction. (Why am I not surprised that I always end up getting killed by enemy Horde players?)

Unlike the previous two expansions, where questing across zones felt somewhat disjointed, every zone in Shadowlands is tied to the next. When levelling your first character from 50 to 60 in it is not possible to ‘cheat' the game and skip to a different zone. I know this because I already tried, just to see what would happen.

As I quested through the starting zone of Bastion, curiosity got the better of me and I tried to fly to Maldraxxus on the back of one of my friend's two-seater mounts. As we flew away from Oribos, the central hub in Shadowlands, a notification filled my screen. It said, ‘the in-between claws at your soul', and I was noobishly catapulted off the map. Seconds later, unsurprisingly, and to the amusement of my friend, I died. (Save your gold on armour repairs and don't try this!)

To unlock the next zones in the Shadowlands, players must complete the quests that are tied to the central story. In this sense, the story is very linear: as you progress through each zone you will encounter different cut scenes and scenarios. The questing is not simply a repetitive XP grind to reach the maximum level, so your achievements feel more rewarding.
