Gav and Gleave in Wrath of the Litch King

I picked up WotLK recently (as written HERE), so here’s my experience.

  • Gleave is my human Death Knight, who recently finished off the battle at Light’s Hope Chapel, leaving the Litch King’s grasp. Now I’m supposed to kill Patches (bringing back bad memories from my battles with Stitches), and the questgiver said to have my ‘fellow Death Knights’ help me, because Patches is too much for me. Um, dude? I’m alone here. There’s NO ONE ELSE AROUND! I’ve not seen another non-NPC DK since logging in, so I’m not sure where I’m supposed to get this help from.
  • Gavelier, after extensive questing in Winterfall and running a few errands, got within spitting distance of lvl 58, and after killing some random mobs in the Eastern Plaguelands I finally dinged, qualifying for the Outlands. I was joyous; after almost 200 hours of playtime, I was finally ready to see what the Burning Crusade expansion had to offer. However, then I remembered that after just an hour or two of play, Gleave was also level 58. This was unfair, but it brings me to my next point.
  • While I appreciate not having to start from square one with my DK, I did notice that there’s a serious lack of connection when you start so deep in the game. Gav’s my favorite because I’ve been through so much with him. From slaughtering Defias bandits in Westfall to my eventful first trip into Un’Goro Crater, Gav and I have experienced most everything for the first time together. Gleave, on the other hand, just kind of exists. I have no connection with him, and could delete him tomorrow with little remorse. Getting a ton of nice gear and abilities right from the start made him seem like someone else’s character that I was just borrowing. Maybe I’ll warm up to him, but for right now, he’s not my favorite.

Well, that’s all for now. I’ll post more as I delve deeper into the game. On a side note, am I the only one who reads Gav and Gleave and thinks of Gloop and Gleep from the Herculoids? Hmm…
