No clue what WoW in the title means? It’s an MMORPG and it’s called World of Warcraft. As for the rest of you, this post describes my 9 months in WoW and why I advise you to go for the Loremaster Achievement. Well, maybe not if you’re a total PvP freak but that’s a bit to chaotic for my taste 😕
From 0 to 160 in 9 months
I’ll briefly run you through my 9 months up to the point where I’m now. Starting WoW as a total newbie I chose a human called Nobroody. After reaching level 10 somebody told me I was a warrior. Huh? Oh 6 different classes, cool! 🙂 So keeping my nose to the grind stone it took me approximately 6 months for my warrior tank to get to 80 and get a feel for the talents, stats, and spells. Only then for the real work to start … tanking. It felt as being fairly exhausting, my gear wasn’t raiding material yet and I was reluctant to start raiding as it felt to stressful.
During my fun playtime with my fellow guildies I was totally swept of my feet by the night elfs so I started a new toon, a druid called Broodala. I leveled as feral, as I was adviced by one of my guildies, and changed to balance at level 75. Reaching 80 briefly thereafter i’d decided to make this my main. As my guild –The Old Guard– has an immense social ring to it I contacted one of the officers that this was gonna be my main. It would take a few weeks for I could participate in raids with this one. So ahead lies a nice period to grind for emblems and upgrade my gear. 2 weeks after that my gear levels were up to 200-226. I am now saving up for a few tier9 items, but then this toons is sort of maxed out (aye, also the fishing, cooking and weapons skills).
So why Loremaster?
Totally smitten by my elf, I planned to dual spec balance/resto, thus having 2 roles and contribute to my guild. Although I like teaming up with my guildies a lot, I can’t deny the fact that I’m somewhat of a lone ranger. So once resto is in the pocket, then what? Leveling a female dwarf enchanter/inscriptor feels like another grind job. Having gained my title “Ambassador” I got a taste for more. So I figured what’s the coolest there is? Well, Loremaster sounds very SF-ish, elf-ish and if not fairy taily. It needs approximately 700 quests per contintent. But more important it makes you see everything in the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor as well.
Then why go for the title since it’s such a tedious job. It’s all about having fun and the beauty of the zones from the original warcraft game is absolutely amazing. Besides the fact that those speedlevel like ‘projects’ are all about the end game and there’s just so much more to see and experience. And on another subject .. It’s payback time!
Where my warrior died time and time again, at level 80 my druid caster killed the mobs like a knife through butter which felt great, as are the big pulls in the low level dungeons. I realize it all depends on the person and what your likes and dislikes are but it definitely is fun to get that title.

Wouldn’t want to withhold you my moments of joy.
Hope you enjoyed this post and continue to have fun in WoW!
