Paladin Leveling

I’ve been working on my paladin since I last posted on here, and Namiel is now level 75.  I spent a good period of time working on the 969 rotation that is used with paladin tanking. It is amazing how fast you can actually kill things as prot these days. I remember AoE grinding in my 40s and 50s and it taking forever, but with all of my abilities at this level, it seems to be taking no time at all to get mobs down. I plan to start doing normal instances. Hopefully I won’t get the parties killed very often.

Main Playing

Update from this weekend: I started playing my main again.

It’s kind of funny how I gained interest in Namiel again. It was probably in keeping up with this blog and in listening to back episodes of Twisted Nether Blogcast that really inspired me. I took her up to level 74, started working on a tank set, dual spec’d Ret/Prot, ran through Dalaran for my first time, got revered with Kalu’ak, and, over-all, just had a lot of fun with a character I didn’t enjoy for a long time.

The role I’ve always enjoyed doing is tanking. I originally leveled Namiel from the 40s to 70 as Prot, and I’ve been reading up on the changes to Paladin tanking on the Maintankadin website/forums. It seems to really haven’t changed a whole lot since BC, but I’m going to have to start running some instances to really get into a groove again.

New Character

That didn’t last long. I started a new character with my brother tonight. We’re leveling Alliance Characters on Kargath, neither of us have any above level 60, and I figured duoing this content would be easier and more fun than trying to solo it again (plus it gives us an opportunity to really play together). We got to level 10 tonight, almost finishing Azuremyst Isle. I’m playing a Shaman, Anodoin (planning on going elemental) and he is playing a Druid(planning on going Balance). The leveling was pretty quick, we did it in about three to four hours, and I had a lot of fun hanging out with him. Continue reading
