Having gone through both of the new races’ starting zones, I thought I’d give my opinions on how they turned out. They were both well done, but in different ways. The Goblin starting zone was very goblin-esque: it was fun, campy, had some entertaining moments. The Worgen starting zone was very sober: it was like you were in an industrial revolution time period, and you’re fighting for your survival.
This is going to be part one in a series of going through the changed starting zones of all the races, finishing up their respective starting areas – Durotar, Tirisfal, and so on.
My biggest disappointment was what happens to the Worgen after the starting zone is done, but we’ll get to that part later.
There will be lots of spoilers forthcoming. Follow along after the break to go through my thoughts about these two great areas.
