I have decided to play Alliance in the upcoming Classic World of Warcraft. Why? Leveling zones & look/feel of the faction in general. To me the Alliance feels like structure & order, whereas the Horde is more chaos & ruin. I am a structured person for sure, so that choice is easy. I’m also looking at the zones I want to level in for ones that appeal to me. I didn’t get to level in vanilla, so I am basing my preference for the zones from my memories of my early Lich King days. I made some charts (based off templates I created in 2009, don’t judge) to get a feel for where I would like to quest. I plan on spending some time in each zone, not just rushing to level cap as fast as possible, so the choices matter to me.
You can see I prefer the Eastern Kingdoms zones over Kalimdor. The “must do” zones for me are Stranglethorn Vale, I love the jungle aesthetic; Burning Steppes, the crater/underground area is neat & Un’goro Crater for the “Land of the Lost” vibe.
I am looking forward to the leveling experience, challenge & the journey to end game.
