I just recently took my first character through the Stormhorns explorer zone and did the 1st 4 quests there (failed in my 1st attempt at the final quest -- will try again!). I realize that I am late to the party here, but I thought it was great! The visuals are excellent and I really enjoyed going up against some old skool D&D monsters such as Griffons, Harpies, and Frost Giants. It was challenging but not crazily so -- and I even got to fight (and slay!) a dragon random encounter!! After the wha? that was the Wheloon stuff, this was really enjoyable.
just sharing some positive feedback
