I don't have a whole lot to say this week. I've been doing a lot of questing in Hellfire Peninsula. It's a really great way to get good gear right away once the BC goes live. I got an awesome crossbow that replaced my Ancient Bone Bow and I've upgraded nearly ever piece of my dungeon blues that I had been wearing.
Something I've found absolutely addicting, however, is world pvp. Now, Blizzard has implemented this in the Eastern Plaguelands already, but I have honestly never tried it.
Almost every zone (it may be every zone, but since I have not visited every zone, I don't know for sure) in the Outlands has a PvP objective. Most reward your faction with a zone-wide buff if you capture all the objectives within the zone.
For example, in Nagrand, if the alliance controls Halaa, then all members of the alliance in Nagrand receive the buff "Strength of the Halaani" which increases damage done by 5%.
In addition to the buffs, gear can be purchased from the quartermaster in friendly towns in each zone.
All in all, the world PvP makes an exciting addition to the Outlands experience, and I can't wait until I am high enough level to give those level 70s a run for their money.
