This is why I'm not rushing through the game. I wanna experience Northrend over a course of time so that it all can really sink in. Blizzard has done an amazing job and I'm not rushing through it!
The game pretty much starts at 80 for me. Usually the whole leveling process for an expansion is 1, maybe 2 weeks out of the 2ish years I play the expansion.Here are a few things that should each take longer than it takes to level from 70-80:1) Really learn your new class abilities. Work them into your user interface, and into your muscle memory.2) Learn all the heroics, paying close attention to the fight mechanics of each fight, and recognizing where they are re-used. Get so that you can encounter those mechanics in new content, and know what to do. This will make raiding a lot easier.3) Learn how the theory behind your class has changed. What are the new stats you need to be worried about? How much do you need? Research the pieces of equipment out there that are the best in slot, then go get them.4) Endure the sons of Hodir hell.5) Get the other factions up.If you are just hitting 80 NOW, then that should be more than enough to tide you over til the next content patch.
I'm not quite 80 yet, but my plans are...... Get the 5000g to get a epic flyer (where is the love Blizz?), then fly till I find something to do.
4) Endure the sons of Hodir hell.I beg your pardon? The Sons of Hodir were one of my favorite Factions to gain Rep for. Well... sort of. They had fun quests.
I'm gonna be completing this http://www.wowhead.com/?achievement=1206Otherwise i have no plans really.
Personally, I wish they would bring back the quest line like the hunter quest, that we got at level 60 from MC. That was a fun quest and it proved to others that these hunters that did these quest knew how to play there class.
The first thing I did when I hit level 80 was take a deep sigh of relief. I made it! After that, I started running dungeons and researching the best pre-raid items to obtain so I would be ready for raiding. Then, I actually started running Heroics and raids. Of course, I participated in a lot of world PVP and worked on my professions, too. Many a players have died trying to get Saronite Ore in Sholazar Basin.
Ohh I am gonna farm gear for both protection and dps on my warrior, which i never did in tbc where i focused on my tanking gear only. ^^ and raid alot!
Now that I am 80, I willStill 77 :(
I'm still taking a break from raiding after our push through SWP before 3.0.2 and the xpac. I'm enjoying fishing, cooking, farming, rep grinds, and going to bed a little earlier. The raids aren't going anywhere, and they would currently cut into my Time-Lost proto drake camping time. It's a relaxing balance to WoW at the moment, but I can already feel the tingles to raid again. Dammit.
PVE 4 Life. Raids, and dungeons!
Waiting for the 25th to do the last 2 requirements for the Merrymaker title. While waiting I am working on finding the blessed books for the Higher Learning achievement (which btw, is seriously a pain).
Currently i am doing Dailys to get my rep up with the different fractions. I am also doing as many Heroic Dungens as i can. But there is one thing that is getting in my way... getting a good group.This has always been a big problem, and i have been trying to get a perm team going since i got 80 but its not working atm. I do have three friends that i always go with - Hunter, Rouge, and Resto Druid, and myself, Dps druid. Our main problem is getting a GOOD tank. Does anyone else have this problem? (Besides the people who are tanks -.-) I find it so annoying...
Getting ready to finally Solo Molten Core to grind Hydraxxian Waterlords reputation. (....)Neh, there's always achievements. But they're making it way too easy now for the kalimdor and eastern kingdom quest caps going down.A more challenging achievement would be to do 'everything' with the DK. It would be much harder for these classes to get reputation with certain factions due to the mobs being grey.But first gearing up my warrior for heroics would be nice. Probably not gonna raid anyway.In the meantime I also want to get all my other characters to 80, as well as their professions maxxed.By the time I'm done Blizzard probably launched something new. Like the SSO back then in TBC.
agreed Arideni. I don't really think that I'm ready to jump into raids just yet. I'm being pressured to by my friends who play 24/7 to get to 80 so I can 3v3 and raid and all this stuff I don't want to do. I just want to log on and do quests with the occasional instance. Quests are very fun :}
I am 79 Death Knight now and I will hit 80 this weekend :)I will do what i love, pvp , 5 -10 man dungeons and fishinglol
ROFL!Did you actually..... nevermind - just.. ROFL!
