    Levelling Madness

    My baby shammy is now level 53. My played time at level 50 was 1 day, 12 hours and change. Not all of that is actual play time, since I’ve been levelling herbalism, cooking, fishing, and enchanting, which count towards that total. Each time we play for a couple of hours, we end up doing three levels or so, and rested bonus never goes down. It’s madness!

    And to think that we only did the Recruit A Friend thing because P. wanted the mount. :)

    I’ve taken a few days off this week for my birthday (it’s a disastrously huge birthday, a milestone birthday, and I think I needed the time to prepare myself mentally!), and so I think that today, with another few hours playtime, we should be in Outland. Easiest levelling ever.

    Feels almost as fast as getting older in real life. The years seem to go by like some cosmic Recruit A Friend programme that I don’t ever remember signing up for.

    Recruit A Friend Weekend

    P and I spent the weekend levelling some new characters. We decided to start new ones mainly so that he could get the two-seater rocket mount on one of his characters. I’d also been thinking about starting another healer, because I am having a ton of fun healing on my pally – I’m just not a fan of everything having such a long cast time. So he started a baby paladin, and I started a shaman. In just a couple of reasonably short sessions over Saturday and Sunday, we’re now at 28/30. (He’s levelling faster due to the increased xp that wearing heirlooms gives.)

    Seriously, a few hours worth of work, and we’re at level 30. We barely start quests before they go green. It’s amazing.

    Aside from that, I did some well-fought Wintergrasps over the weekend, and did a lot of relaxing. We watched some TV in order to justify having just ordered Sky. We watched one episode of Dog the Bounty Hunter, which may have been the most cringeworthy thing I have ever watched in my life.

    All in all, a good weekend. And I like my little shammy. The rocket is pretty cool, too. :)

    And I just had to include a Dog the Bounty Hunter clip, just so you could see how awful/funny it is.  :D
