I spent the night questing in the Stormhorn Mountains with my guildmates, last night. Kudos to the devs for the very nicely made adventure zones and quests. The landscapes were fantastic. I believe the Stormhorm Mountain zone is larger than the King's Forest, but, like the Underdark, the perception one gets in the zone is that it is endless. It makes it so easy to immerse oneself into the game. I believe that this is exactly the type of experience the majority of players want when out exploring.
I enjoyed the quests as well. I cannot remember their names, but, one of my favorites was the one that takes place under the glacier. Again, I was made to feel so insigniificant in comparison to my surroundings that the adrenaline flowed in anticipation of the encounters to come. Fantastic!
With numerous characters to level to 28, I realize that the rush I got from the first time won't last, but, with the graphics you have employed, I do believe I won't feel that I am going through a significant grind.
On the business side of it, I earned over a million experience and gained a level, just running the quest chain and exploring the Stormhorns. I still have two explorer points to find, too, so, I will get back to it soon. Tonight, I will be running the Wheloon Prison series of quests. I am looking forward to those now, much more than before.
