This weekend, Mooglegem and I became exalted with the Klaxxi. I enjoyed seeing their story unfold, but I was also very glad to put it behind us. I was very happy with it for a while, actually, but eventually it just got so repetitive. Once I’d done every daily 10 times, how exciting could it be to see it again? If you continue reading, there are some slight spoilers, but I’ll avoid the “big reveal.”
It was cool to see the story culminate in a fight between the Klaxxi and the queen’s forces. It was leading to it, and I was afraid Blizzard would neglect to show it to us. It was never explicitly stated as far as I can tell, but I wonder if the fight outside is why there aren’t Klaxxi with us in the Heart of Fear. We’re the representatives of the Klaxxi pushing inside while the rest of them hold back the bulk of the her forces outside.
I wonder if Blizzard knows they need to keep these reputation grinds more exciting? The Klaxxi was interesting, yes, but it was also about three times too long. You know what they could do to improve it? They could give me more non-daily quests that progress the story, say once every two days or so. Oh, yeah, they did that with Dominance Offensive. The Dominance Offensive is quite the grind as well, but I enjoy seeing the story play out as often as it does.
And now it’s time to get started with the Golden Lotus.
