I don’t know exactly what happened to me but here I am, leveling a paladin at the speed of light. What started out as a joke between me and Zelmaru about joining Team Heal to destroy it from the inside is turning into a fun experiment about fast I can level a character to 85.
So far after about 12 hours I’m level 43. Not too bad I think.
I don’t know if it’s because I’m leveling as a ret pally, or the new experience or a combination of both but everything has been a blur. In fact, it’s been only since hitting the eastern plaguelands (lvl 40) that I started noticing a slowing down in the levels. To be fair, I know all the zones and quests by heart and I’m doing my best to be speedy but still, I was expecting things to take a bit more time. It does speak volumes about the revamped WoW.
The long-term plan is still a bit hazy but I’m thinking of trying to actually gear the pally for raiding to see what healing is like nowadays. The last time I raid healed was in the beginning of BC in Kara with a priest. And that didn’t last long because soon enough I was asked to go shadow to become a living mana battery.
So, I don’t know if I’ll finish leveling this character or if I’ll remain motivated to gear a new character for raiding once I start hitting the heroics but so far, it’s proving to be a fun diversion.
