Lol, I finally achieved my goal on my Priest of hitting Exalted with Stormwind, and grabbing myself a horse.
A Chestnut Horse, to be specific.
Yeah, it’s not exactly ground-breaking news, but I was damn happy to get it.
Thank you to my wife Cassie for suggesting, “If you’re only 4000xp from Exalted, why not go to Elwynn Forest and do level 1 quests?”
Doh! 30 minutes later…
Oh, and thanks to her I didn’t have to wait until I hit 50 and could start doing Runecloth turn-ins… that’s a nice cost savings for me.
So my Priest is level 48, maxed in Tailoring and Jewelcrafting at 300 and 305 respectively, I have a horsie to ride, and I’m just champing at the bit (lol) to hit 50 and level my skills right on up towards 18 slot bags and Prospecting Adamantite Ore!
I love alt enthusiasm.
Now if only I could kick this nasty cold, and if our son didn’t have pink eye.
Oh, and I have a question… since my son is 4 years old and goes into hysterics when we try to put the eyedrops in, does anyone know where I can get a size 4 straightjacket? That boy is strong!
Damn it, one last thing… for those that said I’d hate the way Draenei legs stick out when riding a horse… I hated that elephant. I mean, HATED. And when I look at the Draenei sitting on the horse, it looks natural to me. After all, the legs have that extra joint at the bottom where the foreleg points forewards. It just seems reasonable to me that tucking the legs in would, I dunno… hurt.
Have fun and see you again soon, guys! And FYI my WoW Insider post should go live at noon East Coast time, so go over there and check that out if you want. I talk about my take on some of the upcoming changes in Patch 2.4. Expected? Yeah, probably, but this cold is kicking my ass.
Anyway, have fun!
