At Last

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 12:27 pm

Well, patient Flowersz has finally made it to level 70 and got her flying mount. Level 69 took a little over 12 hours despite wasting at least one hour in a totally inappropriate area for levelling. For the record I’ve spent a total of 14 days 22 hours of playing time getting to this point.

Now all I’ve got to do is to decide what I’m going to do with her, click now that levelling isn’t a goal anymore.

Certainly doing dungeons is on the list. I guess earning money for my “epic flying mount” (5000gold) is also on the cards, more though I can’t see myself devoting much time exclusively to this. Getting better gear so that I can prepare for raiding is a definite, though I suspect this mostly comes under dungeons and group quests. And finally, perhaps, grinding reputation with many of the factions in Outland so that I can buy
better gear, if there’s any to be bought.

Another possible time-sink would be to drop one of my gathering professions (mining and skinning) to take up a crafting profession. From a quick skim the recommended professions are Alchemy and Leatherworking, since I’ve got Skinning and haven’t got Herbalism I guess that Leatherworking might win. Though Jewelcrafting might be an outside option, rumour is that you can get better stuff from Jewelcrafting than you can from leatherworking. Anything that gets me better gear quickly I guess.

On a totally different side, I’ve now got a cordless trackman (Thumb Trackball) mouse, I’m sort of looking to use this more than the keyboard, and, though it does seem easier to use than the laptop’s trackpad, I’m not entirely convinced about having one of my hands off the keyboard. I’ve quite a large number of keybindings that require pressing shift or control, there’s no way I’ll ever be a “clicker” so I’m kindof wondering what I’m going to do. It could be time to try the Nostromo N52 again.

We will just have to see how it goes….
