Remember when we would shake our heads at people who bought lvl 80 toons on eBay? Now, this.
Are you freaking kidding me??? SERIOUSLY??? This is why I’m glad I don’t play WoW… The process of leveling is how you learn to play your class! This is freaking ridiculous!
I got a free boost for one character to 80 for being hit with a Scroll of Resurrection… As well as a free server/faction change to my friends’ faction/server.
I really don’t like that… I suppose it’s good for Blizzard from a business standpoint… For now at least… They’re really trying to keep their subscribers up since they already lost a TON from cataclysm and are going to be losing a lot more with Mists.
I know I was one wit 4.2…. Which is why I won’t be buying the month to get my friend his mount. TOR is enough for me, even though my playtime there has gone down too.
I’ve just quit playing MMOs all together. Last MMO I played was LOTRO because I wanted to get to Minas Tirith, but I couldn’t at level 1. Everything kills you on the way. Although I am very good at getting places I shouldn’t be able to in MMOs… I crossed the entire world of Silk Road Online at level 10ish… Took me an entire day and had about 50 different people res me.
Sounds like my Vanilla Gnome mage run through Wetlands to get to Darnassus.
Ah… I loved the old days of just running around WoW. Getting killed by everything. And the game used to force you to do that. Like my Warrior quest for Beserker stance… I had to travel through Horde lands, zones 5 levels too high for me, and just getting killed over and over until I made it to the island for my quest. It was the most awesome thing ever. Now you’re encouraged on a rather fixed quest path that doesn’t send you off on crazy suicide quests like that anymore… You can’t even go do other races starting quests anymore.
You still could as of the last time I played. My Worgen went and did the Night Elf starter zone for free rep….
But yeah, I still remember the Warlock epic mount quest. That thing was a monster. Now you just get the damn thing at the trainer.
Really? ‘Cause I tried to do some other starting zone quests for rep and it would never let me.
Could be you were way over leveled and didn’t have it set to show low level quests? But I went through during LK on my DK and did all of them that I possibly could… And I know I did it on my Worgen because the NElf cat mount is just the best in the game.
Nah… I had low level quests turned on. And actually… I wasn’t actually doing it for rep, I don’t think… It was on my warrior and I was going through the Cataclysm quests to see how they changed and see the new story.
I only did the NElf ones frequently, because of that Nightsaber. But, yeah, they didn’t really change much post-Cata.
I always liked doing the human quests because I freaking love humans. Plus, I could go through them very fast and learned to solo Hogger on some classes like my mage underlevel.
They removed Hogger from the forest and put him as the end boss of Stockades.
No they didn’t. He’s still in the forest. There’s a quest where you capture him and that’s how he gets to the Stockades. It was neat but kind of killed some of the fun of Hgger.
Oh, I never played a human, really. I just remember instance-findering my way into Stockades and kicking his ass in there.
I played human mostly. If I could have it as a human, I did. Human Warrior, Human Mage, Human Warlock, Human Death Knight, Human Rogue. Of course I had other classes that couldn’t be Human like my Shaman and Druid, but I just kinda love being Human.
Elf by choice, except when I faction changed to Horde. DPS Death Knights benefited a hell of a lot more as an Orc so I stuck it out as the fugly. Warlock and Paladin as BElf’s though ;p
My horde were usually Tauren. Specifically my Shaman. Loved my Tauren shammie. Actually, I miss him more than my Warrior. Shaman healing was just so much fun!
Agreed. Shaman healing took the most work to do well, and was actually fun to do. I leveled my Space Goat Shaman as Ele/Resto.
I leveled as Resto… Was really hard until they put in the dungeon finder. I actually leveled really fast after that. Shaman healing just really came naturally to me. I tried healing on all of the other classes, but I couldn’t really get the hang of the others.
Shaman: Healing Wave, Riptide, Earth Shield, Chain Heal, Riptide, etc
At least during LK when I played em all…. Shaman got a bit easier in Cata, I heard.
Never max leveled my Shaman in Wrath, just got to about 70. It got a tad easier in Cata, but it just felt like it had more of a flow to it than other healers.
Meh, I was a tank. Prot Pally, Prot Warrior, Blood DK…
Dual spec DPS usually, but I was never big on healing.
Oh, I was a Tank too. Only ever got into healing on my Shaman. Prot Warrior was my main. I actually had two prot warriors. One was a 70 twink for a while but I ended up leveling him to about 75… Kinda sad because he had a ton of awesome 70 gear. Ended up replacing him with a rogue twink and got a ton of Best in Slots… Until 4.0 came out and destroyed a lot of the stats that made my gear(including the gloves that cost a lot of gold, time, effort, and even real money for a faction change too make) useless.
I could never twink, not my thing. I was big into PvE over PvP. Something about all the drastic changes every patch made me not want to invest time into learning something completely new every patch. At least my Unholy DPS Death Knight spec stayed pretty constant.
Oh, I was more into PVE too. I had a guild on my server that did Burning Crusade raids with twinks and some max levels to fill the empty spaces. Never managed to get Thor’idal or Warglaives, sadly… Did Sunwell and BT every week. Saw one Warglaive drop but passed it to someone to complete a set. Was really sad and was ready to offer a rather large sum of gold to anyone to pass it to me if one ever dropped again.
