A number of you have asked me, (both in game and on twitter etc) how playing the horde, differs from being an exclusive Alliance player that I was before.
Well, my Horde vs Alliance story goes back some way.
When I first started playing, being a total LOTR dork (even my wedding was LOTR themed), the natural choice for me was a night elf, and since I didnâ€™t entirely agree with nuking fluffies, I thought priest would be a good option for me.
Little did I know that nuking fluffies was part of the game no matter what class or race I chose.
A month or two in, I thought that blood elves looked pretty cool, so I made a hunter, and leveled her a little, but I took one look at Ghostlands, Undercity and a brief look at Orgrimmar, and promptly decided that the horde and itâ€™s cities were way too ugly for me to spend any time in.
In addition to this, before you can fly, Orgrimmar can be totally confusing with all itâ€™s different levels, elevators and zeppelin towers.
Fast forward a few months and I found myself with a handful of alliance alts and declared myselfÂ â€all Allianceâ€.
Then some guildies and I thought it might be fun to create some new blood elves together, and while we never intended to level them all the way at the start â€“ once we were 5 levels in, I think we were all having so much fun that it seemed silly not to try and take them up through the ranks. Thus Enter the Baboons was born and weâ€™ve since been moonlighting between Horde vs Alliance ever since.
Now that my Warlock is lvl 65, and Iâ€™m *FINALLY* able to fly, being in those horde cities is less stressful than it was before. Although I still havenâ€™t found the Honor Points Heirloom vendorâ€¦and someoneâ€™s helpful reply that it was â€œabove Thralls quartersâ€ though trying to be helpful, was no sodding help at all.
