What am I most looking forward to about Battle for Azeroth?

Lovely ladies Z and Cinder are doing a blog challenge and anyone can join! Topic of week 36 is “Farewell to Legion”, this is part 2 – “What are you most looking forward to about Battle for Azeroth?”. Part 1 is coming eventually. You can find other people’s posts on their website.

New zones and quests

It’s always great to explore new places, meet new people, make new friends, catch new pets and see new stories. Not just the big over-arching story of the expansion but the little ones. The farmer whose crops are getting destroyed by their neighbour’s boar, the chef needing some animal parts to feed their friends, the kid who got lost and needs help finding their parents. Those are my favourite and they’re sometimes even more interesting than the big ones, at least for me. There are definitely some memorable big story moments but a few years from now, I will remember Illidan punching a hole through space to get us to Argus with the same love as escorting a snappy grandma in Highmountain.

Character progression

Not just my mage’s progression but my favourite lore characters’ progression as well. Mainly Jaina and Anduin but also the usual suspects like my crush and future husband Khadgar. I always love me some Khadgar stuff. He doesn’t need to be important, he just needs to be there so I can look at him.

We are getting Jaina again and in her home this time. I can’t wait to see what is going on with her. Fingers crossed Blizz writes her well!

Now that Anduin is a king, I want to see how he is going to rule. I used to be worried that Blizz was going to turn him into a stereotypically masculine man with a huge sword but the BfA cinematic gave me a bit of hope. As long as he throws the sword away on his own, I don’t need to interfere. But the moment he forgets he’s a priest and tries to be paladin or some sh*t, I swear I’m climbing on my desk, through my laptop to Azeroth, taking his sword away from him, finding him a proper healing staff and hitting him on his head with it until he realises we need peace.

Hips

Kul’Tiran women have hips and curves and they look like me!

I could write at length why body diversity in games or any other media is important but a lot of people have done that already so look it up if you need to.

These models are amazing. I hope we get the option for our human characters too but if we don’t, I’m race changing so fast all the fat on my body will jiggle.
