It is hard to believe that so much time has passed since the release of Mists of Pandaria!
How goes the journey, you ask? When last we left Goldslipper, she was fending off cockroaches in Sethekk Halls, hoping for a special mount to drop before MoP launched.
Arago, our Death Knight (main for the Young DK, my son) was slowly being leveled (mostly by me, mom), with a promise that he would be the NEXT level 85 character on our account (behind big sis’s character Saldra), and the FIRST level 90 character. Here he sits, late in 2011, outside the city of Gilneas, unguilded and just waiting for his opportunity to shine. Why outside of Gilneas, you ask? Well, that is where orcs who are played by young 8 year old WoW lovers like to hang out, of course.
He has, subsequently, moved his home a few times. First to Dreadmaul Post, and now, he resides in Bloodgulch, where he can rub elbows with Garona Halforcen, when he is not too intimidated by her menacing presence, that is. He has been leveling, steadily, and is now, amazingly, nearly halfway through level 89. This is the fastest we will have ever had a max level character in our four years of playing the game, and it is REALLY exciting. We will have so much time left to do ALL THE MAX-LEVEL THINGS this time, before a new expansion comes along, right?
Goldslipper is happily awaiting her turn, keeping herself occupied with all sorts of silly escapades….something to do with monkeys, I think…
As usual, for us, we have been meandering at a snail’s pace through the game, with daily twists, turns and sightseeing stops along the way. As Arago nears 90, and the light at the end of the tunnel becomes a bit clearer, I look forward to having the opportunity to share some of these little moments, which I’ll capture in subsequent “Meandering Toward 90” posts.
Thanks for reading and I hope you are enjoying your time in Azeroth as much as we are!
