Taking a Vacation and Seeing how the Other Half Lives

So what do you do if you’ve run head long into a WoW slump? You roll a Rogue… So I’ve got a little time on my hands what with being snowed in and all* and I decided to take a break from my Death Knight and blow off a little stress by rolling an Alliance Rogue. I was exploring a few zones a while ago and it struck me that I’ve been playing Horde exclusively. I realized that there’s an entire side to the game that I’ve never experienced. I’m sure that most if not all of you think I’m crazy for even considering this, but really it’s all part of my spontaneous nature I guess. It’s that and my innate curiosity that lead me to even try playing WoW in the first place.

The first toon I ever rolled was an Alliance character, a Night Elf Druid. After my first few minutes playing WoW I was invited to play on the Horde side. I rerolled and I just hadn’t looked back. The last few weeks though I’ve lost my enthusiasm for WoW. So I’ve been thinking about ways to make it a little more interesting (while of course still playing withing the bounds of the game).

I have to admit, I really enjoy the Rogue class. My Human Rogue ‘Auslander’ is dual wielding currently just a dagger and a sword, but it’s a start. I’ve also enjoyed exploring Elwynn Forest, Stormwind City, Ironforge and even Darnasuss. Because well of course to train for bows you have to go to Darnassus and well I wanted to check out Deeprun Tram.

Honestly, it’s been an odd experience playing Alliance, and pretty much everything I expected it to be. It’s pretty fun to /flirt with the random Horde folks I run into. It’s also interesting to see what it’s like on the Alliance side from well, heh, the Alliance side. Honestly I’m not sure whether I’ll stick with the Alliance side or not. I kind of like the lore aspect of playing an Alliance Rogue. It’s sort of like being a spy. I really enjoy being able to go into stealth and pick the pockets of mobs for the quest items.

I’m still questing solo, so I’m not sure how long I’ll end up playing an Alliance Rogue. For now though it’s interesting to see new sights, meet new people, and kill new mobs.
