I had my fourth character hit 85 today. It occured to me as I worked towards it, that all four of my 85′s have reached that level in different ways. Alas was a combination of questing and dungeon running. She finished out every zone and ran every dungeon.
My hunter got there only through solo questing.
The druid farmed herbs and ore on her way from 80-85, only doing a handful of quests here and there as I sought to open portals between SW and the zone I intended to farm in. She hit 85 while picking Cinderbloom out in Uldum.
Today it was my paladin’s turn. While she has mostly quested her way up, I admit I am already somewhat bored with the questing content. So for the last bit, I turned my attention to archaeology, flying from point to point and paying more attention to my feed reader and my email and my writing. Nevertheless, despite my lackadaisical ways, she dug up some old Dorfish pot and hit the cap.
With four more 80′s in various stages on Azuremyst and my neglected horde priest and warlock also sitting at 80 on my other server, I am wondering whether I can come up with other ways to hit the level cap. I suppose PVP is a route that’s open to me, but I cannot begin to determine which character I would take through that torture. Perhaps the DK?
And maybe I’ll let the poor Alliance priest level only in SW, doing her JC daily and the fishing and cooking dailies. It could be an odd sort of challenge.
How do you other alt-mad people prefer to break up the tedium?
