Aaaaand... Numbah Two



Level 58 and going through the Dark Portal for the second time... but the first time as a Horde character, and the first time on a PvP server. I'm super excited to see the differences. I suppose I'd best start preparing for Gankings-From-Above. (Though to be honest the ganking is not that bad on this server, bar a few run-ins in Stranglethorn and the occasional skirmish elsewhere. A little nervous about Outlands though.)

The leveling up to 58 went by surprisingly quickly and I'm sure the next two levels are just going to breeze by as well. I have to admit, I was very glad that the pre-60-leveling didn't get nerfed until I'd already hit 70 for the first time "the long way"... I got to spend more time exploring Azeroth for the first time and hitting up every zone. This time around, there were a lot of zones I had to skip or just skim through because of the increased leveling speed. But on the other hand, I sort of like it because it means I can come back to those "skipped" zones on my next time around, and they'll be more fresh for me.

I'm excited to get to level 62, get myself Steady Shot, and make a bunch of Hunter Kindergarten posts about being brand-new-to-Steady-Shot. No guarantees on how soon that will be, though!

Congrats on the PVP Outlands Ding Pike, that is an accomplishment. When I crossed over at the start of BC I was on a pvp server horde side... that entry zone was a graveyard.... so much death...

I just found this blog tonight and I've not been able to stop reading it an hour later. Absolutely amazing stuff here and I'm happy to have stumbled across the page. Congrats on making it to Outland again too!

Gratz. Gankings from above will mostly happen when you are at the towers, the spirit towers in Terrokar when they're open, and then in Nagrand because of Halaa. It will occur randomly elsewhere but those are the most common I found on Darrowmere at least.

Congratulations of a second one through!

Hooray for Steady Shot! I am reminded constantly how boring it can be with out it as I play a low level hunter. Up until steady shot you're pretty much not shooting anything >< its like running around naked!

Nice work! Congratz! I keep getting all nastalgic as I get closer to OL with my second.

It may actually be a bit emotional remembering where I was both in game and out when I get there.
