The priest I had been casually leveling hit 70 about a week ago. This character is the sixth character that I’ve raised to level 70. Also, despite my previous thought of playing the Druid in WotLK I’ve instead decided to play this Priest. Currently I’ve specced her as 59/2/0 Discipline and really enjoying it. I’m able to heal quite well and also complete quests without getting too frustrated. With the expansion only about a week and a half away I’ve scaled back my normal gearing ambitions. My hope is to enter Northrend with a reasonable kit.

The Headless Horseman event helped. I ran it around level 66 and was able to get a pair of rings that I put in the bank. I was also able to run Karazhan at level 68 and get a pair of boots and an off-hand. At 70 I rounded out my gear by purchasing the blue-quality faction PvP gear.

    To do before WotLK:

  • PvP for the Merciless Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle. I love this model and have wanted a set of these shoulders for a while.
  • Purchase an Essence of the Martyr.
  • Raise my Shattered Sun Offensive rep to Exalted. This will allow the purchase of K’iru’s Presage and Shattered Sun Pendant of Acumen.
  • Raise my Scryer rep to Exalted.
  • Raise my Sha’tar rep and Keepers of Time rep to at least Honored to purchase Heroic Keys.
  • Complete both Tailoring and Enchanting Professions.
  • Save up at least 2000 gold. I had originally thought about trying to get Epic Flight, but I’m not sure there is enough time.

Note: I had intended to participate in NaBloPoMo but I neglected to post on the first two days. All isn’t lost though! I hope to put up a post a day for the rest of the month.
