Breakfast Topic: Varian Wrynn doesn't care about Menethil people

Those of you on the U.S. servers have no doubt spent the last evening getting reacquainted with Azeroth. Stormwind and Orgrimmar have been severely damaged. There's a volcano in Ashenvale. Real estate listings in Gadgetzan are now boasting ocean views. And as for Azshara -- well, let's just say it's different.

Personally, I found myself transfixed to the wreckage in Menethil. It felt like the disaster was actively happening around me, even though the world inside the game is probably a couple of months removed from the actual act of the shattering. There are an awful lot of sand bags around, but they don't seem to be helping much. All I can say is that Varian Wrynn is going to have a heck of a time winning the Wetlands' electoral votes in 2012.

Have you had time to survey the carnage yourself? Which zone's treatment have you enjoyed the most? What do you think of the new world you find yourself in?
