|Elisande insulting the elves gathered against her|
With the reputation and experience bonus going on, it would makes sense for me to either be leveling my Alliance alts or new Horde character in World of Warcraft (WoW), but I was more interested in finishing the Nightfallen questline 'The Insurrection' that allowed you to create an allied race character.
As I've mentioned previously, I tend to not like elves, but I do believe this story was told in a way that encouraged you to side with them. Elves typically are arrogant (and Elisande certainly plays that role) but they have been humilated and are trying to get back what they have lost. Also between the Suramar questline and the Insurrection questline you build up a relationship with the Nightfallen, particularly Thalyssra, Occuleth and Valtrois.

Elisande has a change of heart once you defeat her (that seems out of character) and then you're able to confront Gul'dan. Illidan shows up at the end and you get to see him with Gul'dan's skull as you do in Burning Crusade (no screenshot captured, but I'm sure you can find it).

Now I can focus on other things. I'd like to continue Illidan's story in the Tomb of Sargeras raid but first I think I'll level my new Horde hunter to hear more of that side of the Battle for Azeroth story and take advantage of the reputation boost. I sent Kantoor to Vol'dun since who doesn't want to have a fox character but the reputation boost is almost over and I'm not sure I'd even use the character if I created it. He is level 111 now and I am looking forward to seeing more of the other side of the story.
Generally I am pleased with how the Legion story gave me so much content and would encourage other players to see it if they have the time. I also feel like the Allied races have giving me more solo goals that allow players to see some additional content and rewards them by being able to customize the characters in new ways. It's been fun but I'm probably close to the end of what I'd like to accomplish. We'll see how this plays out over the next month. I'd like keep a twice a week blogging schedule, Tuesday's and Friday's, but I'm already behind for this week.
Also last week was the end of Blapril and I can now officially display my silver award for 15 posts, my goal. Thanks to Belghast for setting this up and for all who participated and I'm looking forward to continuing the Civilization Succession Game with other bloggers.
