Demon Hunter Quests and Introduction
I just finished the Demon Hunter questline. I want to talk a bit about it, so if you hate spoilers then come back tomorrow.
First impressions: I enjoyed the quests.
I think Blizzard utilized some of what we can expect in Legion quests during these initial DH questlines. That’s both a nice thing, and a little bit alarming. I ran into quite a few bugs with these scenario and “public quest” type events where I didn’t get credit.
In terms of the lore, I like the Illidari. I think their existence makes sense — way more than the Draenei or Panda. What shocked me most was the Cordana and Maiev confusion. I thought that Khadgar’s bodyguard was Maiev Shadowsong all this time. I thought it made sense that Illidan was imprisoned and she now had nothing to do. Nope.
Khadgar’s bodygard was actually Cordana. During the Legendary Ring questline, Cordana succumbed to temptation and turned to the dark side. We see her as a Fel-Warden in the cutscene where she opens the door to Illidan’s tomb inside The Vault. Whew, that confused me.
Maiev had actually been guarding Illidan (sorta?) all this time.
Demon Hunter Class Mechanics / Gameplay
Demon Hunters are a neat class. I think they feel pretty good in terms of mechanics. A rogue meets warrior type of deal. I think their forms are neat, and movement is a big part of how they play.
Visually… they’re freaking awesome. I love the wings that come out with you double/triple jump. The glowing eyes and demon blood tattoos put it over the top. I have class envy for sure.
I don’t know whether or not I’ll actually play one, but having one at level 100 is sure nice. This might be my tank alt.
