While I have been impressed with life in Northrend and how things are going with Wrath of the Lich King, I have not been playing a lot. Non instance group nights have been mostly spent in EverQuest II, exploring Norrath from the Freeport perspective.
Still, I do find myself in Azeroth now and again, chasing down quests that do have a bit more spark and flair than your average “kill 10 foozles” routine. Among other things I’ve been bombing pirates from a captured horde airship and out hunting with a train falcon.
And, amongst the fun, I found my hunter, Tistann, suddenly level 71.
Of course, a few minutes later I ran into a level 80 death knight. There was somebody who managed 25 levels in the time I did one.
It isn’t a race, however… well, not since all the server first achievements got finished up. I’m just enjoying the time I spend in Northrend.
