As of right now, Pandaria is only eleven days away from being available to the public, I talked before about my plan for selling all of my leather and other level eighty-five materials (Be MOP #97) and I talked about what I might be doing for the Raid Finder when I get to max level (Be MOP #111) but I have not really given any thought about how I am going to get from level eight-five to ninety.
In Warth I tried to dabble in dungeon runs before I reached max level (this was before the implication of the LFG feature) I ended up losing more playing time because we were constantly looking for members who would leave mid-dungeon runs. Needless to say I soon got frustrated with the whole dungeon experience until the glorious 3.3.0 patch.
In Cataclysm I leveled exclusively on the quests, focusing on the advancements in the lore and in the questing game mechanics rather than the repetitive dungeon runs that I experienced in the 5 mans.
As a result I completed most of the quests achievements before moving to the next area.
For leveling in Pandaria , I think I have recovered from the horrible Warth’s dungeon experience that I might allow myself a few runs of the new dungeons, but my primary focus on this leveling adventure is to experience the quests and story that unfolds.
I only have a few weeks to properly consume the quests that depicts the escalated war and the new island at the appropriate level. I have the rest of the expansion’s life span to run through the dungeons to get the best gear.
Be MOP focuses on the lead up to the next World of Warcraft expansion with my own reflections about the last dying moments of the Catalysm’s Twilight Hour as we look into the Mists of the new day. Updates Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
