It doesn’t look like much, does it? Just Niqora and Grakoth doing some quests in Shadowmoon Valley. But oh, it is much more than that. The text box hints at it. Whether you want to believe your eyes or not, it’s true. Niqora has reached level 70.
It’s hard to believe after spending so much time playing (getting on 2 years now) I have just now leveled a character to 70. And you know what? I’m glad it took so long. I’m glad that I spent the time fooling around roleplaying and making friends. I’m glad that I did it really without any help. I’m glad that I’ve learned how to chain-trap even though I only did it once and I’m still not great at it. And boy was I happy when I kited for the first time, that being Niqo kiting Tusker through Halaa all the way to Garadar, killing her all on her own. Of course I was so excited I forgot to screenshot it. *sigh*
The absolute first thing I did after reaching 70 was mount up and race back to Shadowmoon Village. I had saved up over 2000 gold so I sauntered over to Dama Wildmane. My favorite troll hunter joined me and helped me pick out this beauty.
He then took me for a tour, showing me the Skyguard and Shattered Sun dailies. I knew flying would be fun but I was having a blast! He laughed when I kept saying “Wheeeeeeee!” while flying around in circles. He was really nice of him to take the time to show me around, even if I was half dead from playing for 12 hours straight.
My epic flying is going to be the red one, because Niqora looks good with red and it offsets the troll’s nice green one. 🙂
The reason why I had been playing for 12 hours? Well, I wanted to get to 70 that day but also because Mr. High-And-Mighty Paladin said I couldn’t do it, not enough time. I was determined to prove him wrong and I did.
So that’s the big news! Aren’t you all so excited for me?! Ah, I know that as happy as I am about it, most of the people reading were hoping for something else. I don’t want to disappoint you…go on and read the next post.
