Level 60

The reason why I haven’t posted here at all since Tuesday is because I reached level 60 in World of Warcraft. For those unfamiliar with the game, 60 is the top level, and the level at which you start many of the big raids, so quite a bit of my free time has been spent preparing for them, as opposed to blogging and such.

Last night I had my first proper Molten Core raid – I attempted one last week but we’ve had some major lag problems and so I kept getting disconnected – where we did Golemagg, Sulfuron and Majordomo; we then attempted Ragnaros but failed due to a lack of mages and warlocks and gave up on the fourth attempt.

I’ve been quite lucky to get into a guild that is active in Molten Core and other high level instances. I’m only there because of Hari and the fact that the guild leaders were nice and invited me; however I’ve always felt guilty since we’ve turned away a number of very good paladins who have far better gear and more experience than I do.

I am enjoying the game more now that I’m at this level; now I just hope that it doesn’t all of my time up.


  1. Uhhh… hasn’t it already? 🙂

  2. Congrats! I’m almost there. Half way to level 58. It’s bloggers like yourself that got me into the game. I’ve really been digging it.

  3. Course work comes first!
