And that’s a wrap for Recruit-a-Friend

We made it to 60! Despite many delays and complications in real life, we nonetheless kept it and got Xeniji and Zijin to 60. We did most of their 50s in Felwood as a change of pace, then a bit in Winterspring to hit 58, and off to Hellfire Peninsula to finish it off.

Expect more interesting posting as we decompress from that.


One last night leveling in Azeroth

Xeniji and Zijin made it to 50, and are set for their last big push tomorrow. At level 58 they’ll take the Dark Portal and do the early Hellfire Peninsula quests. This was therefore their last night leveling in the old world.

Wow, somewhere along the line, Hinterlands quests got a lot of tuning. The number of required kills is down all over and drop rates for quest items way up. We were braced for a bit of a grind and…didn’t get it. Instead we just had good troll-mashing fun.

A brief note on the last Recruit-a-Friend push

Sure enough, Xeniji and Zijin made it to 40 tonight and are still on a roll. We’re hoping to get a speed run through Zul’Farrak, and that would get us really well into the mid-40s. 60 before RAF runs out on the 5th is still looking possible.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends

I’ve been saying that this set of characters would be my last to level up for a while. Well…almost the last.

My recruit-a-friend pairing with Aerayn, my partner in crime, is good through October 5th. We decided that it’d be amusing to see how far we could get with one more race up through the levels. So we have two troll warriors coming along, her Zijin, who’s doing the protection thing and will be Aerayn’s first potential tank, and my Xeniji, who’s leveling up with arms and may be either arms or fury at higher level.

We started on Tuesday, then had real-life distraction delay us, but finished up Wednesday the 30th at level 23. The race is on!
