So the reason for the title of this post is because I have been slowly leveling up a Death Knight for the purpose of mining ore for my main to use for transmuting. Obviously I chose a DK because you get to skip ahead 55 levels. I made her a Night Elf so I could have pink hair. These things are important. Months ago I had worked pretty steadily at getting her into Pandaria so I could get my grubby hands on ghost iron ore. But then I got lazy with her and my leveling slowed way down. Finally I realized I could gather more ore quicker if I’d just buckle down and get to level 90 so I could fly in the new zones. Last night was the magic moment. I finally hit 90 AND I got the Dynamic Duo achievement – which I didn’t even realize existed until last night. I mean, I already had two level 90 characters so I didn’t realize. Obviously the other two level 90s are both the same class so of course I didn’t get the achievement previously.
But the point is, now I don’t ever have to DK again. I can just fly around and gather ore and cut jewels. Though to be honest, I may at some point decide to do more with her. I started off hating melee fighting. I like to stand back and throw things from a distance so I can see more of what’s going on instead of having my face in someone’s crotch all the time. But I will admit after actually running a few dungeons on her to make 88 – 90 go by faster, I got to where I kind of liked my face in someone’s crotch. Errr… wait… you know what I mean. So maybe one day I will decide to do more end-game stuff with her. But for now it is time to work on another lowbie alt. I think I’ll start on my baby Shaman.
In other good news, being done leveling and getting new gear constantly meant I could finally assemble the transmog outfit I gathered while questing in the Outlands. It’s red … SURPRISE!
