One Week To Go

Well, we are now one week to the release of Wrath of the Lich King. I have a good idea of what my plans are to finally be ready for next Thursday. Once I start my journey to Northrend my quest log will be emptied. I will also go through and clear out my bank of things I won’t need anymore. What makes that list is a little harder to decide. Obviously we don’t have the problem of battleground tokens or Badges of Justice anymore with the new bagless currency form they are in.

I have also been buying the cheapest Netherweave … to help with the First Aid leveling processAny crafting materials I don’t plan on using are getting sold or vendored. I have a decent stockpile of herbs to make a items. I’ve been trying to pick-up Enormous Barbed Gill Trout as it is one of two yellow cooking recipes I have. I have also been buying the cheapest Netherweave I can find to help with the First Aid leveling process once Lich King goes live.

I am not taming a tanking pet yet, but plan on grabbing a level 70 one out in Northrend, most likely one of the bears I had in beta. It’s not a Gorilla, but their diet is a little easier to please if the need arises. :)

Hey, sometimes finding apples in the cold North is a challenge! Dang fruit diets.

Given open-world PvP encounters, having the Beast Within as an escape mechanism and kiting tool will be a valuable resource.I am thinking I am going to level mostly as BM. Given open-world PvP encounters, having the Beast Within as an escape mechanism and kiting tool will be a valuable resource. This will be the first time I leveled on Illidan with the masses and I am unsure of how powerful the unspoken treaty of “no ganking while leveling” is around these parts. On Deathwing I leveled quick so no matter what it wasn’t a problem. But this is Illidan and it is a whole new ball game.

In the few days leading up to the expansion I probably won’t have a blog post as I try to implement a new layout for the blog. Hopefully you will find that it loads faster thanks to a reduced number of images needed in the layout as well as concurrent connections needed to exterior sites. But that isn’t here or there but I thought I would give you a heads up. Obviously I will have a back-up of this one and if the new one doesn’t work or if a lot of you guys don’t particularly like it, we can revert back to this one.

Thoughts, comments, etc. The mad dash for content is almost over, what else are you doing to get ready for Lich King?
