Dinging 60

"Ding 60" party

Making it to the supreme level of 60 is something every WoW player aspires (and after the expansion pack we’ll be dreaming of level 70). It’s such a special event that my guild, Lords of Honor, decided to celebrate it. A guild member and me have been questing a lot together and waited for both of us to be 1/2 a bar from 60. The guild then organized a raid, following a group of us two into Felwood. There, deep in the Jaedenar cave, we sought out an elite demon and slew it. A few adds later and we both dinged in succession with most of the guild watching from a distance and cheering us on. It was a great ding party and we plan to make it a custom for each member that gets to 60. We go wherever the soon-to-be-60 member wants to go and every guild member is invited, regardless of level. We even escorted two level 12s into the cave and they only suffered a few deaths. It was good fun and I hope to see it more often and not only in our guild. Dinging 60 means a culmination of hard work, of all the time you spent playing your toon, and probably all the broken RL relations…

Now that I’m 60, the loss of the XP bar kind of makes me feel empty…

    congrats! my main is halfway through 57, it’s a great feeling to know that i will finally be playing with the big boys, so to speak. so what now? raiding? pvp? that’s a question i’m grappling with.

    No idea what’s next, really… I guess improving reputation, do a lot of instances to hope for good epic drops that roll your way and I started to like BG too.

    Gotta say, that’s quite the party and effort on behalf of your guild to be there for you. Sounds pretty cool!

    congrats! i’ve got about a bar and a half to go on my alt, and i’m both excited and dreading it. no longer accumulating xp really affected my gameplay on my other 60. without time to run raids, i was left feeling bored.

    Yeah, losing the XP bar makes a difference. But I did a Scholo run last night and it was good fun. You get better drops at 60 – I got my Shadowcraft cap – and you can still improve reputation. But you’re right, Posh, making time for raids is going to be hard. I’ve been trying to join Jonkichi for a Molten Core raid, but so far it hasn’t been possible due to time schedules.

    Phoenix: Yeah, I’m lucky with my guild, although I can see We Know do this kind of “ding 60” parties, too. If your guild doesn’t do that stuff, join us ;)
