It is the last day of Wrath of the Lich King, as you all know, and as I go forward into the next expansion with my many level 80 characters, my decent stock of gold, and my deserted friend’s list, I thought I’d take a few moments to look back over my past few years spent in Northrend, and reflect on what I’ve accomplished, and where I’ve failed. (This post was getting way too long, so I decided to cut them all down to point form, lol.)
-Learning how to joust and becoming a jousting master!
-Soloing Chillmaw for the first time.
-Learning how to use the Auction House and my professions.
-Getting my main character her Soulforge set.
-Getting Loremaster while it was still a challenge and with no help.
-Going into ICC and killing Lord Marrowgar with my guild.
-Getting my gearscore past 5000 on my priest without being in a guild.
-Getting my Phoenix Hatchling from Magister’s Terrace at last.
-Reaching 100k gold.
-Leveling every profession to at least 425.
-Leveling a character of each class to level 80 (plus an extra Pally and Priest).
-Starting this blog!
-Going into Trial of the Crusader with my guild, wiping once and everyone giving up (on the guild, not just the run).
-My guild falling apart after only a few months.
-Not Getting enough mounts for the 100 mount achievement.
-Doing less DPS than the tank in ICC trying to play as an AoE fire mage.
-Letting things be ninja’d from my guild bank.
-Losing touch with all my old WoW friends.
-Making no lasting in-game friendships.
I did okay on my own, and though I’ve accomplished much more through this expansion, I definitely enjoyed myself more thoroughly in the Burning Crusade, mostly just because I had others to enjoy it with!
I think guilds will be out recruiting at full force over the next few weeks, so I’m going to do my best to find something that is a good fit this time, and hopefully that won’t fall apart by Christmas! I’m very excited to attempt the fishing relm first when the servers switch over tomorrow morning, and am in the process of cleaning out everything from my bags to make room! I’ll be sure to do at least a mini post to say whether or not I managed to get it sometime tomorrow, and big thanks to everyone who wished me luck! I’m definitely going to need it!
What are your greatest WotLK accomplishments & failures? What are you going to do first tomorrow when Cataclysm hits? Are you going to a midnight release or downloading it online or waiting until the stores open in the morning? AND AREN’T YOU EXCITED?! Hehe, I am!
