After a few persistent questions from some coworkers, I’ve decided to hop back into WoW with the new expansion, Cataclysm. In case you don’t actually read anything about WoW, Cataclysm’s main selling point is that they’re revamping the entire early-game of level 1-60 gameplay. This means that I’m actually going to be excited about rerolling a brand new toon!
Interestingly, the Blizzard digital download option is not performing as well as I might have expected. After several attempts, I managed the upgrade; however, my wife is still trying. And apparently, we’re not alone with these problems. I suppose huge scalability for a service that is inevitably only a spike is a lot to ask, but it’s also… frustrating not to be able to spend my money efficiently!
And while I’m at it, what are the must-have UI Add-ons at this point? I’m both eager to get rolling again, and nervous about what seems to be widespread malicious/keylogger/etc content.
