As a long time WOW player I am most excited about new leveling zones. I started this game on release date and have been in the midnight line up for wow and every expansion. I am an alt ***** and at the moment have 5 80's. I want to level more but I am making myself hold off until Cata because I want to experience the new zones as many times as i can. I am also a fiend explorer and I love to go places I haven't been IRL and WOW. For example, the priest levitate bug, which I have tried to get into hyjall like 7 times and always get ported to damn winterspring! But I cannot wait... my goal in Cata is to have 1 level 85 of each class.
I have also been a hardcore raider since the game came out and I have raided from the hot depths of MC to the very colourful halls of SW to the repetitive corridors of ICC. From what I've seen, the Cataclysm instances really intrigue me. As a long time player, the thought of fighting Rag and Nef again really gets me excited. Plus watching a few videos of the Cata instances and zones makes me check my email every few minutes. But raiding has always been what I lived for in WOW and I think Cata is going to slap us all with that taste of CC (what did someone say CC)... thats right sheep matters again wtf! But seriously I am looking forward to hard heroics again and I'd absolutly love the chance to test them out.
Now, even though i am a PVE player first and foremost, I have a soft spot for PVP and I will always remember two specific locations for pvp (Blackrock Mountain OMG 40v40 or you had a fellow guild starting their raid at the same time suddenly it's 80v40)... but then u get another guild and have your 16 rogues all pick a priest to ambush lol, good times. The next spot is the one and only Tauren Mill Vs South Shore... what can you say about this place... But on that note if you've watched any of total biscuit's zone reviews then you've seen they are getting us to World PVP AGAIN... REJOICE! There are many zones with alliance camps very close to horde camps with a large contested area between and this just tickles my PVP bone right where it tickles.
For the final topic i would like to talk about my favorite part of any video game... THE GEAR... for me the most exciting part to any video game is they ungodly amazing crazy armour and weapons you get. The things I've seen so far from Cata just make me claw my eyes at for how bad I want at them. I think my obession for gear and mounts is what drives me to level so many alts. Rare mounts are a crazy obsession of mine and i will go over the sad list for you, between my 5 80's i have 1 raven lord, 1 ZG tiger, 2 ZG raptors, 1 ZA bear, 1 Rivendare's Deathcharger, 1 Midnight from kara, 1 white hawkstrider, 1 rusted proto drake, and 1 bloodbathed frostwyrm. If that isn't someone crazy about mounts idk what is lol, but to say the obvious I can't wait to farm more mounts in Cata.
So I hope this has made my case for why I'd like to be in the beta... ty for reading and have a good day :-)
