1.5 Million Experience Points To Go

I found some time to get log onto WoW Wednesday night and ground myself through the last bits of my level, getting Vikund to level 68. Appropriately enough, Vikund leveled slaying that staple of MMO beasts, the boar.

A purple boar with green spikes on his back. They do come in all sizes and colors!

That leaves, by my estimate, about 1.5 million experience points to go until Vikund hits level 70.

Which seems like a lot, I suppose.

After all, the most I have ever gotten for a quest reward is 12,000 experience, which puts me 125 quests away. But there is all that experience you get along the way, slaying those who oppose you, your faction, or you particular quest giver. Call it 70 quests plus collateral damage.

70 quests to level 70!

And then I will have accomplished something new. I have never managed to get a character to level cap in an MMO. The last character I had at a level cap was back in the days of Toril MUD.

So while the instance group may not make it through all of the five person instances before Wrath of the Lich King comes out, we should all make it to level 70 by that time.

    In theory, 69 to 70 should be the hardest, it being the largest amount of xp you’ll ever need, but you’ll find it flies by now the end is in sight. At least that’s how I found it on my only lvl 70 to date. It’s even harder levelling from, say, 44 to 45 with your alt imo! Argh STV again…

    Gz on 69, leep up the good work.

    And by the way I’ve often thought this but never posted it on your blog- I’m very envious of you having a regular dungeon-going group to hang out with. Yes there are guilds but your group seems something very different. Maybe you mentioned it in a very old post but I missed it- tell me are they friends you met in game?

    The experience requirements for levels 69 and 70 are pretty small incremental increases when compared to 65-68. I have no doubt we’ll be 70 soon enough.

    Skronk and I have known each other since Jimmy Carter was president. Ula is his wife, while Bung and Earl are RL friends and sometime co-workers of his, so there were relationships that existed before WoW, which probably explains how the group has remained so stable.

    Now that you’ve specced Ret, you should really use Seal of Command, Vengence is only really used for tanking :/

    Don’t quest in Netherstorm if you can help it. You’ll want to leave those quests for after you reach 70, because they will give you more money after you reach 70 when you complete them. This is a great way to make money to get your flying mount.


Voice your opinion... but be nice about it...
