Today, I realized that the seventh of July passed me right on by without my doing any more to recognize it than making sure a certain bill got paid. Such is my life lately.
The seventh isn’t really all that significant in the grand scheme of things. It was just the day, four years ago, that I first got Alas to the then level cap of 70. I recall this because of all the 7′s and 0′s that go into reaching 70 on 7.7.07.
I remember being elated to finally be there, at the top. And then mildly depressed for several days after because, after all, what was there to do once you had hit 70 if you didn’t intend to raid?
My alts got a lot of play time in the following weeks and eventually I did discover raiding and the frustration of heroics. It just amuses me that past me thought the game was over at level cap and current me realizes just how much of the game doesn’t really start until then.
When did you first hit the level cap and how did it make you feel?
