said... Which starting zone in Northrend has the most village's or forests and the least open areas? I don't wanna end up in another Barrens look-a-like.
Allison answered this yesterday
, but I just wanted to stick my nose in and say that I agree with her completely. Neither starting zone is as horrifyingly plain as the Barrens, but it sounds like you'd want to go to the Howling Fjord. The Borean Tundra is very diverse, but I personally think it is very flat and plain in comparison to the forests and cliffs of the Fjord. Not that the Tundra is boring, it's a very unique landscape. It's just not as... filled in, I suppose? I'm sure some of the readers will disagree with me, and that's fine. I think you would like the Fjord better. Tharkis
Which starting area do you think is the least likely to be overpopulated and not look like the area surrounding the Sunwell Plateau at launch?
I'd bet a dollar that the Howling Fjord will be less populated than the Borean Tundra. Stormwind and Orgrimmar take you to the Tundra while Menethil Harbor and Undercity take you to the Fjord. I think your average player will end up in the Tundra simply because they start closer to it, since Stormwind Harbor is new and shiny and Orgrimmar is a population center. This morning Dan O'Halloran posted a pretty nice guide on how to get to Northrend
and other key destinations, by the way. YukonPete79
Do bosses on heroic mode in WotLK drop badges like the bosses of the heroic BC dungeons?
Yep, absolutely. Heroics and 10-man raids drop Emblems of Heroism
for gear of equivalent quality. 25-man raids drop Emblems of Valor
for gear of equivalent quality.
