Raiders from the Redridge Mountains from MMOexpshop's blog

But the reward is great -- not only in terms of wow classic gold and XP gathered, but in terms of the spirit of adventure too. There are numerous directors, by the robot-riding Sneed to the elusive Edwin Van Cleef, key to the unfolding Defias Brotherhood story elsewhere with his buzzsaw arms. In the awe-inspiring, Goonies-like cavern of the dungeon's pirate ship hideout, to the way Westfall's surrounding environmental narrative comes together in a focal location, it is everything which makes World of Warcraft great.

Deep breath -- remember that scene from Lord of the Rings, in which Samwise Gamgee realises that if he takes one more step, that is the farthest from the Shire he has ever been? That's Redridge Mountains for me -- I've crossed the giant bridge across Lakeshire's namesake body of water in my past failed campaign, shrouded in the shade of its autumnal leaves, but that's where it ended before.

Since the Arabian Redridge Mountains play host, That is a shame I've seen thus far in World of Warcraft. While its ecological storytelling, together with Stormwind's great stone monuments along with the wild manicured dungeons, has consistently fades, I have otherwise bounced off of Warcraft's plot. Likely because it's often only a mechanic to bounce you from 1 quest giver to another.

But Keeshan's Raiders from the Redridge Mountains' narrative got me hooked.

It proved to me that when not stuck in the cycle to buy classic gold wow of this grind, World of Warcraft could provide some superb storytelling, with set pieces and pieces which you can grow to really care about. Yes, all of the towers I destroyed after my assignment ended reset themselves, and yes, Bravo Company is probably back in chains waiting to become re-rescued by another plucky adventurer. There's never a sense of finality, or finite outcome to some questline that has to be by individuals follows in your footsteps, repeatable. However, for a few hours, I felt like I had been a part of the'war' in that'Warcraft' name.
