Bye Bye Northrend

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.
Oh well. I almost made it. Things were going pretty well on my casual stroll through Northrend, but I ran out of stuff I could do at 84.5. I suppose I could have gone back picked up the lower level quests that I skipped, but I still don't think it would have added up to enough XP to ding cap.

Icecrown was a real drag towards the end. I had to skip some stuff because my gear was too pitiful to pull off some of the 5man group quests. It seemed all the leather was rogue gear, which made my boomkin sad. Mana was becoming a real problem for some of the elite stuff I was chewing on. I did get a fair amount of XP from all the dailies out there, but I didn't hit the Tournament until the end of the zone, so I missed out on being able to load up with those dailies.

Now I have decisions to make. I could go ahead and do the OCD Cata grind. Again. I could try this little time-wasting experiment with a brand new toon and see where I end up going from level 1. Or I could go over to beta and play my monk. But at this point, none of those are really jumping out at me as a "Hell yeah!" prospect.

    FML I've been meaning to post on this for awhile now...

    If I'm reading this correctly... you leveled to 84.5 in Northrend? Or you got bored with Cataclysm content and went back to Northrend to do miscellaneous quests that you had left behind?

    I did all the leveling in Northrend and Outland. It was one of the toons I leveled up with one of my random "replacement DPS" teams and dropped at about 57 when I swapped in my tank. She went from 60 to 76.5 in the Outland zones and then from 76.5 to 84.5 in the Northrend zones. She didn't touch any of the Cata content until she ran out of soloable quests in Northrend and Outland. She hit cap somewhere in the beginning of Hyjal.

    I probably could have stuck around Northrend doing dailies for the last half level, but that would have taken a while.
