Breakfast Topic: Your in-game vacation spot
Sometimes, you’ve just got to take a break. But in Azeroth (and Outland, Northrend, Pandaria, Draenor), there’s not really any hot vacation spots. Wherever you go, there’s a battle raging,
an exclamation point a questgiver in need of help, or someone who wants you to collect a dozen bunny ears or deer hooves (that will, without doubt, require you to kill more than a dozen bunnies or deer). Sure, you could ignore these things (and the siren song of gold and experience that comes with them), but even ignored, these drains on your attention keep most of the world from being a particularly relaxing vacation spot.
So just where would you go for an in-game vacation? The spot that comes to mind for me is Pandaria, in the arboretum under the ever-blooming cherry trees (or, well, the trees that look like cherry trees). Sure, there’s the occasional problem with giant wasps, but in general it’s about as peaceful as the World of Warcraft gets. Quiet spaces like this seem few and far between in a game environment that thrives on conflict… so tell me, if you were going on an in-game vacation, just where would you be heading? (Though if you’d rather keep your favorite spot free from crowds of tourists, I can understand that, too.)
