Dance, Tauren, Dance

Indeed, Saintvache hit 85 this afternoon.  Gotta love an old-fashioned exploration ding!  Much like Kamalia last month, I now have more end level characters than I did when I came into the expansion.  Granted, three isn’t all that many.  But when you’re a proverbial Octopus reaching into various cookie jars, it’s still something.  More importantly, it’s my first level capped Horde.  Heck, it’s the first non-Death Knight-Horde I got past level 40 (yes, that will change).

Once I started getting down to the final four bars, it was exciting.  After doing some of the red dragonflight cut scene quests in Twilight Highlands/Grim Batol, I noticed I needed about three thousand experience, so I took to the sky and a short time later…


With limited time before I had to carry on with the rest of my day, I made my way to the Justice Points Vendor and immediately bought my first epic.  I figure trinkets might be hard to come by via drop, so I bought the Singed Plume of Aviana.  The reason being, I’ll be healing far more than tanking when I run things (finally) with Myth, so I figured it was a good step in the right direction.  I then equipped the healing set I had built thus far…

…and quickly realized how Illidan-awful his outfit is.  Next step: design a transmog set.  You know, had I been thinking this through, I would have had Rhianous do that instead of Elcombe.  Oh well, hindsight is 20/20.  I’m looking forward to doing the Thrall chain now, as well as Molten Front.  Yes…I realize how sick that sounds, but I actually like the Front.  Regardless, I’m going to enjoy my freshly minted 85.

    Um, don’t you mean that he’s the first “non-Death Knight Horde” you’ve gotten past level 40? “Non-Horde Death Knight” just doesn’t make any sense, seeing as how he IS Horde and isn’t a DK? 😛

      Something tells me there may be some truth in that…and some sarcasm. Time will tell, though!

      That’s the first one I’ve gotten “end game.” Normally I would hand in a quest, but as I knew I was getting over 6k for each newly discovered area I thought I’d do something different.
