New expansions in WoW are really great. New levels, new content to explore, new stories to hear and more! My favorite thing about new expansions, though, is how powerful my characters are once they finish leveling. I’m not one of those super-soloers like this rogue who soloed Patchwerk 25 at level 80. The only raid I could solo at level 80 was Strathome (when it first came out you could technically take a raid in there, so that counts, right?). So, when I hit 85 and got a little gear, I was quite excited to be able to spend time obliterating Karazhan and Molten Core etc. by myself. Now that I’m 90, I’ve been pushing into more BC raids alone. Thanks to this awesome video, I was able to do Tempest Keep the other night. Yes, I know he did it at 85, but like I said…
What’s even better than all this anti-social behavior is stomping out old raids with a few close friends! My horde-side guildies and I decided to give Ulduar 25 a shot the other night. It started out as just 4 of us, and we were having a hell of a time trying to figure out Flame Leviathan Four Towers. Luckily our other 2 guildies logged in as we were going to give it our last shot. After one more wipe, we got him down and proceeded to merrilly frolic our way through the rest of the acheivements for the Ironbound Proto Drake. We didn’t finish as it got late, but we made it all the way to Vezax. Along the way, this awesome staff dropped. The two druids and I all gave it our “ooh’s” and “aah’s”. I felt a tiny bit bad that I won the roll, but I knew I was going to run out right away and make a mog for it :D My little belf mage has been running around in this mog, but as always, it looks much better on Drayney, lol.
