Ding 69! Ten Hours to Go…

Ding 69 statsThis morning Gitr dinged 69 by completing a quest from Ruaan Weald, deep in the Wyrmcultist cave. Experience Fu is estimating that I have 10 hours of leveling to go to ding 70. Here is my plan for the week to get to 70 in good shape:

  • Go back to Shadowmoon Valley to complete many of those quests that I’ve neglected by doing Netherstorm instead.
  • Do frequent LFGs when I do get 2-3 hours to play to get into some instances for XP, rep, and loot.
  • Play the AH to get enough gold for my flying mount upon the big ding. Time to go get Auctioneer Classic again… Advanced is bugging the heck out of me.
  • Clear out all of my group/elite quests that are jamming my questlog.
  • Research the Protection spec I will be using for instances/raiding with Doom’s Assailants on Silvermoon (US-PvE).
  • Consider re-speccing now and simply instancing my way to 70 in really fine, fun fashion. Who wants to grind/quest anyway?

Grinding and Milestones Along the Way

Felguard - level 50 demon petSo I finally dinged 50 the other day and being a demon spec Warlock was able to, with the ease of placing a single talent point, acquire a shiny new demon; my Felguard.

Now for me this accomplishment has been something I have been working towards for awhile and finally doing it makes me go WOOT! Finally getting to level 50 has gotten me thinking as well. Thinking about the goals and milestones I set for myself along the road to 70, because in my mind just having a singular goal of 70 makes it seem like an overwhelming task. For me, at least with my Warlock I have had quite a few milestones/goals.

Level 10- getting my Voidwalker: Man that guy can take a beating.

Level 20- getting my Succubus: Whip… whip it good!

Level 30- getting my Felhunter: Ah my little anti-caster puppy thingy.

Level 40- getting my mount: So he’s on fire and I have to ride bareback?

Level 50- getting my Felguard: that’s a mighty big axe you have there fella.

Level 58- I will finally see what Outland looks like.

Level 70- At least for the purpose of leveling, and for now, the finish line.

So how to you break up the levels? What milestones/goals do you set for yourself along the way that makes you go WOOT?

Well I have not yet really taken my new Felguard out for a night on the town, so I think I am going to go slaughter a low level Night Elf village to celebrate my shiny new demon.
