That’s a disappointing time.
Decided to transfer my Priest over to the beta and clock my time. There were a couple of factors affecting my levelling speed.
- No rested XP
- No guild experience boost
- Watched all the cut scenes
- No pre-completed quests/dailies to turn in
During the Cataclysm grind, I had the Argent Tournament dailies all finished and ready for turn in. Added a decent amount of XP to it and I’ll have some other dailies ready by the time Mists opens up. I can’t remember if we had rested XP available during the 80 – 81 grind when Cataclysm opened. I goofed up on a few of the quest turn ins and pickups. If I factor in all of that stuff, I should be able to knock out 1.5 hours off that time. The new Jade Forest isn’t as super cut scene heavy as Uldum was, but there’s enough to make you go “Whoa.”
I think I’m also going to switch in Reflective Shield as a glyph.
Tonight I’ll clock my time from 86 – 87, enjoy the scenery, and (more importantly) get an idea of where all the Innkeepers are to set my hearthstone.
Thank goodness there’s no conch shell we have to all click on to be able to breathe and swim faster underwater, right guys?
If convenience store owners were savvy, they’d raise the prices of energy drinks for the weekend/Monday as people stock up. I should go pick up some Red Bull or Nos. I like the grape flavour.
Do you plan on racing to level 90 or are you going to take the time to enjoy the sights and scenery?
Tip: Remember this. If you ever get to a situation where you need to interact with a friendly NPC and they’re not on the map, log out and log back in. You’ll thank me for this. This happened to me a few times as I was leveling. I hope it’ll get resolved when it’s live, but just in case!
