Last night the little one decided to drink for about 4 hours. Due to that, I got to play on a raft for a bit and punch some monkeys around. If it wasn’t monkey, it was sharks. Or cats. Lots of cats.
Previous expansions, there was a reason for being a mass murderer. Sure, you attacked boars and bears and beasts but for the most part, it was humanoids. And they were out to kill you. In Panda land, I find myself more often than not, killing mass patches of wildlife, just to collect a pile of feathers for some monk’s collection. The sheer amount of birds I’ve killed is staggering. I lasso them, I take their eggs, I take their feathers, I take their flesh. What’s with this bird slaughter?
A bit like the previous post, Hemet and pandas have something in common it seems. A hatred of anything that moves and can’t talk.
That being said, I did see a couple quests against the Sha. HP Lovecraft slimeballs of hatred. But 5 quests in the 60 (or more) per zone is more like a side quest. I spent more time collecting items to build a raft, go out to see, kill sharks and hunt treasure than I did fighting a guy 30 feet tall made of slime.
So I’m done with the Jade Forest and Karasang Wilds. I’m back in Four Winds to finish the story, with only a couple steps into level 88. I did 2.5 zones (or so) in 3 levels, with 4 zones to go. Wonder what will happen at 90.
