Between real life and the realm queue I haven’t been able to get as much play time as I would like, but in all honesty, I would be playing 24/7 if I could. So far WotLK has not disappointed. The new zones are beautiful and the 5-man instances I have been able to run are really well done.
My first night in Northrend I didn’t even get off the zeppelin before I got summoned to Utgarde Keep to heal, but that got me a good chunk into 70. Sunday I was able to get Jager up to 71.25 after questing in Howling Fjord and running Azjol-Nerub and Ahn’kahet.
Azjol-Nerub is a very well done scripted instance that flows very well and is very short. I think it only lasted about 30 minutes, but it was a very fun 30 minutes. One thing to note, if you have arachnophobia like I do…it might be a tough instance to run…very high on the creepy scale.
Ahn’kahet has now become not only my favorite 5-man and contains someone who is now my favorite boss. I don’t want to go into detail about it yet, but all I can say is wow, I never saw that coming.
Utgarde Keep was very pretty and fun. It is a very good starter instance to get you into Northrend and has some nice gear for all you Enhancement Shamans out there.
So now that I have some 5-man experience under my belt I will be starting to write the resto shaman guides to healing WotLK 5-mans. I hope to have my Utgarde Keep guide up in the next couple of days and others should start to follow shortly there after. Until then keep healing and have fun.
