Wrath Bucket list: Update

My Bucket list for the WoW xpack: Wrath of the Lich King was something like this (couple of months ago - I cannot even find the post):

  • Level all characters to max level
  • Obtain Loremaster achievement on 1 character
  • Clean out bags and bank vaults on all characters
  • Stock up on consumables for leveling in the new xpack (Cataclysm)

To date I got all my characters to max level. That is done.
Gave up on the Loremaster, as I set a new goal of rather getting epic flying training for all my characters (Only 2 out of 9 have it now). This meant a new focus on generating gold via questing and AH business.

I cleaned out the bags and bank vaults of I think 2 or 3 of the characters. Its slow going to decide which old item I still attach value enough to keep. The gold it generates in selling the items to vendors are not to shabby either (200-400 gold per character).

I am also working on getting all my characters gear slots to at least the item level 200 zone. All but my Rogue, Hunter and Mage meet this criteria. I'm still debating if I want to push to 232 level for all.... But I think my epic flying has a higher priority...

Otherwise, I am still enjoying the game, relaxing, raiding when needed, and working on being a gold-hording goblin!

Cataclysm Beta: Worgen

After finishing up the huge 13gb install, and then a 108mb patch, I finally got to play.

I immediately rolled a Worgen Warlock. In two sessions I reached level 7. The new starter area and quests and much more streamlined (almost feels like you are on rails).

I need to explore Gilthaens is bit more. I still do not know where most of the trainers, shops, professions etc are.

But the quests are very well done. Only the male Worgen model has been implemented and it looks great running around as a huge Wolf.

I had a couple of minor bugs that I reported:
On 1 quest you get a mastiff dog as a pet - it immediately despawned my imp!
Further when you are in the inn... the icon on your character portrait do not appear to show that you are "resting".

If I have time, I plan to look at the Human starter area next to see how the quest got changed there.
