      yes sir.

      i'm lvl 85 which took me 8 days exactly.

      already a better experience than the LK was imo. they've added A LOT of cut scenes and for the most part quest hubs are more grouped around the hub instead of another continent. i'm a tank and there's still a lot of AoE dps going on and i was looking forward to some TBC cc'ing of mobs. mind u i was full t10 at the time where as the instances are targeted at fresh 80's.

      ps. seems hard as fuck to find Obsidian

      Doesn't this prove that if a company makes something worth buying then people will buy it
