Been a bit slow lately due to Mists beta, work and other WoW goals being pursued but I have finally gotten my ass to 40. The questing through Stranglethorn’s 2 zones has been fun and to be honest a lot easier than I had expected.
Although I did have a heart stopping moment when doing the end quest as I thought I had died, and was VERY relieved when I got ported back to Booty Bay and was still alive. I was also very wary when doing one quest which sent me to grab a flight from an NPC right next to the Horde flight master.
While I lived to tell the tale and get a screeny of flying on a wyvern, I did have a read of the wowhead comments before going anywhere near him, and had there been any comments about bugging out I would have moved to a new zone.
The gear I am wearing is still mainly purchased gear from vendors in Stormwind with a few drops thrown in. I’ll be buying some white gear from the vendor soon as I need all the increased armour that the mail specialisation brings! I also noticed that there have been some more ironman challengers hitting 85 and among them a druid and a mage and while they all deserve a “grats” the mage, Enferrujo, deserves big props as killing anything with less than a 21k mana pool by a fragile class is nothing short of legendary.
