The True Battle Lies Ahead


(whoooop! Thar it is!)(mod-LevelRecorder auto SS's your levels)

On my venture to level to 80, I completed all the quests in Howling Fjord, Borean Tundrea, and Dragonblight. It was then clear that I was NOT going to get to experience all of the zones through leveling alone.

At 78 and change, we decided to skip Scholozar Basin, Grizzly Hills, Zul'Drak, and Storm Peaks. There are a lot of daily quest chains that start in Ice Crown for level 80s so we figured we'd get XP while knocking them out so we'd be prepared.

Ice Crown isn't the prettiest place to level but it so much fun. All of the quests have a very unique component to them. My favorite which is a daily is called [King of the Mountain]. You man this rocket man suit and jump vertically along this huge mountain until you reach the top. It's quite the adrenaline rush until you realize falling in the suit means taking zero damage. lol!

I also love the epic quality of the area. It's totally hand lifted out of Lord of the Rings but I don't care. There's even an "eye" you go to for a quest. hehehe.

I got an in-game mail from the NPC Rhonin congratulating me on my achievement of 80. I love how he adds "the true battle lies ahead." AMEN brother!

Lord knows how this is going to work for my guild. How do you fit 6 players into a 5 man heroic? How do you fit 14 people into a 10 man dungeon? WITHOUT pissing people off! Yes, if you can answer me this, I'm your friend for life!

Grats you!

Just dinged it myself, amazing how long the old level 70 gear lasted...even some T4 went to level 77 for me due to the enchants O.o

Easy, you just run everything twice rotating people who got gear out with those who haven't. Sure... you might not want to run everything twice, but let's be honest... you know you're going to anyway eventually.

Grats Alachia!

So am I crazy, or did you level a shaman to 80 first?

Wonders never cease. :)

Gratzski! I'm sitting at level 78.5 and am bouncing around from zone to zone. Guess I have leveling A.D.A. since I can't seem to finish all the quests from a particular zone. I'm just now starting to vendor my purples for greens and blues. Still trying to catch my sewer rat per too.

Grats on 80. Regarding satisfying everyone: you can't so don't let it get to you. There will be times when everyone is on like when they first hit 80 and then in 6 months you will be terminally faced with 8 people online at any one time. As it is right now there will be people taking a break for Xmas, although I for one will be in game as it is a lot cheaper.
