Meandering Toward 90

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!


A Theramore RP-PvP Encounter with Horde Emissary, Ravenwing, Theramore Regiment and Kul Tiras

The Friday before the launch of Mists of Pandaria, I had the privilege of attending a special RP-PvP event, created by the members of Horde Emissary (H), Ravenwing (H), Theramore Regiment (A) and Kul Tiras (A) on our Moon Guard server.

As the finale to a month-long campaign started by Horde Emissary and Theramore Regiment, the members decided to roleplay a battle in which the Horde, freshly successful in bombing Theramore, are occupying Northwatch Hold, and face Alliance troops intent on reclaiming the area.

I think this was a GREAT way to take advantage of the new lore, create roleplay connections between factions and enjoy some pvp out in the fresh air of the real world (of Azeroth). I look forward to sharing my experience observing and participating (a tiny bit) in this event…
