Race? What Race?

So, raise your hand if members of your guild were racing to be the first to 70. If you were the first one to 70, go stand in the corner, because you missed a hell of a great game. Just kidding…seriously, how have you approached it? Did you want to get to the new end-game instances, flying mounts, and Heroic Mode as soon as you could? Or were you not really bothered by how long it took, within reason? Did you level more than one character? Or did you focus on a brand new Draenei or Blood Elf?

I am in the middle ground. I don’t want to be left behind and lose a place in future raids, but I am so thoroughly enjoying the content that I’m absolutely not going to race through it. We have quite a few 69-70s in the guild now, but it doesn’t bother me. My hunter is almost 65, and my warlock main is half-way to 64. I did get some rather pointed questions about was I switching my main to the hunter, but the hunter is both more fun and easier to level, so she goes first. Ravven will come second, and level faster with a knowledge of where everything is. My Draenei? Unfortunately abandoned for the moment at level 17, since I simply can’t do three.

My main ambition right now? A cobalt talbuk mount. :)

    Meh. I have been daunted by my fellow guildmates who have rushed through everything and are already unwilling to help me run Ramparts or Furnaces less than two weeks after the expansion has been released. I have been leveling my dwarven pally, he’s 64 (maybe halfway to 65) and my priest has been languishing at 60.5 or so, though I’ve been working on his tailoring and enchanting. My pally’s mining/blacksmithing has been very difficult as ore on our server (Lothar) has been very heavily sought after and camped in some cases.
    I finished all the Hellfire Peninsula quests with my pally after some considerable effort and got about halfway through Zangarmarsh quests but then was invited to do Nagrand quests with my 67 lock buddy and so that’s what I did last night.
    My 12th level blood elf lock on Kul Tiras (and my other horde chars) will just have to wait until at least my pally is 70. Then I’ll start on the priest and work some more on my horde lowbies.
    I LOVE the look and feel of the expansion and I would rather NOT rush through it. The only problem is there is an expectation from the guild that one needs to be 70 relatively quickly if you want to participate in the 25 man raids that are not too far off.
