After pottering around for the first week, I knuckled down and made 76-80 in 3 calendar days.
Here’s newly 80 me.
Now that I am here, I hope to write a few more posts with some hints and tips. We’ll have a look at gear, quests, instances, zones, spells, shot rotations and more. So stay tuned and poke me with a big stick if I don’t write every couple of days 🙂
Edit: People are asking about the cat. He is a Cursed Offspring of Hark’oa (76-77) from Zul’Drak in Northrend. He looks like a low level night elf area cat, except for the glowing eyes and haunched over head posture. His glowing eyes look particularly cool when I hit bestial wrath, and when he is stealthed. When stealthed he also has a silverly sheen to his white stripe along his back. I think, but I am not sure, that there might be an additional animation that his eyes flash extra bright on a kill or special attacks. He is very cool, but I am not sure whether I will keep him or not, I also have Gwind (Shy-Rotam) and Gilgalad (Pitch – the Humar skinned black lion) in my stable waiting to be leveled up. I picked up this one as he was higher level than either of those, and I was going into an instance. I need to decide which of my 3 cats will be my raiding companion in future (until that is I find a spirit beast, and Blizzard fix its dps :>) or I decide to give a devilsaur another go).
