For the lucky ones that did well and left this evil, evil game out of their lives, level 70 is the highest level a character can reach in WoW. At least until the new expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, comes out…
For the most of those 70 levels I was without a party to quest with. I ventured and ventured in the vast lands of Azeroth completely alone, killing mobs and completing quests and shapeshifting from cat to bear and back. I haven’t had anyone to party with until level 65 or something, when Stelios decided to get his uber shadow priest to help me.
For the record, I’ve lived two earthquakes while logged in the game (I mean, real earthquakes) and before I ran to the door, I made sure I had my character safely hearthed back in a cozy inn, not to lose rest status.
That sounds sad, no?
But by looking upon those countless hours of levelling (according to the game, I’ve spent almost 14 days playing only this character), hey, it may sound stupid, but I feel glad.
Most of you will find it the most time-consuming silly thing, but I know that I did what I liked doing at the moment, I met some nice people in my guild and had ridiculous fun bashing mobs and getting new, shiny gear. And when the expansion comes out, I’ll buy it. And play some more. And get to level 80.
On a relevant note, druids FTW!
