I have long wanted to give Fallen Earth another shot as I had tried the trial a while back but was still too deep into my WOW addiction to really give it a chance. Its lack of polish at the time was also slightly off-putting but I did enjoy parts of it and wish I could have supported it along with WOW. Well I figured now that I am not playing WOW I would give it another try and I have to say the game is much more polished. I also was surprised at how lively it was there is a fairly good sized community on most of the time, and everyone seems really helpful. I have been having trouble finding resources outside the game that are up to date though, where is the wowhead for Fallen Earth. I will have to say though the variety of options available in game is probably enough to get me to sub for a little while and see if I can get into the game. More to come on my "first" impressions and screenshots as soon as I figure out how to take them lol.

I decided to see if I could bring up any nostalgic moments in game before my sub ran out so I went to the area I probably spent my most time in game the Western Plaguelands. I used to spend hours killing undead there, it wasn't so much farming as I was a Paladin and back in the day when pallies had such a limited arsenal the extra attacks against undead made me feel like a badass. I loved killing undead, it was my one true passion in game all the way into Icecrown. Well Sorrow Hill where I spent so much time killing has finally been cleared, and you can basically just walk up to Araj the Summoner without even trying. That made me sad to see. I used to go in with all my toons who could barely hack it in the plaguelands and do surgical strikes on the undead until I could clear a path to him. A true test of skill. I would even work with horde doing the same thing on my old pvp server, such was my hate for the undead. I don't even recognize the game I played for so long anymore. Now don't get me wrong the new leveling quests are fun and the game needed a makeover something fierce but, I think it lost some of its heart and soul over the years. You look at each patch and the nerfs are not usually that significant but if you go back somewhere you have not been in quite a while the complete lack of challenge in certain areas that used to be true tests is really disappointing to me. Well I guess I had one more rant in me after all lol. We'll see what I do going forward from here Thanks for reading.
