Trundling along at 65

Not much in the way of news... two more dailies, Spirits of Auchindoun since level 62, and now the Dalaran cooking daily. My gathering is way ahead though, I can mine and herb the lowest-level nodes in the level 85 zones.

Not sure how much fishing you do beyond dailies, but beware Mr Pinchy. I got the guardian Pinchy, who is set to aggressive behaviour, he chomped something and I got the kill, which meant I had to retire yet another pacifist at my PB of 69.

ouch! Thanks for the heads-up. Maybe going out on a remote floating rock in Outland is a safe place to wish...

wait' i'm confused now. did you level all four chars not killing anything or just this druid?

Brian Westley said...

All four, but in different ways:

Reinisch and Noor mostly leveled through battleground dailies, ironically enough. Reinisch, a Priest, only healed, but Noor, a Rogue, had to run the flag in WSG and ninja flags in Arathi Basin to get XP.

Both Reinisch and Noor end up getting credit for thousands of kills because they are grouped with everyone else in the BG and get credit for all the kills on their side.

So I tried a third time with Mainchenn, who got to level 80 pre-Cataclysm in just under a year with only 3 kills to his credit (2 due to weird Warcraft mechanics, 1 to a blunder that tagged a mob another player killed). When he ran out of quests, he could gather herbs and grind small amounts of XP with the new-ish inscription Darkmoon Faire decks.

Flos is just an exercise with the new XP for gathering and archaeology. She is leveling faster than any of the others, since she can grind XP pretty easily.

I'm trying to level a pacifist priest, and at level 15, WoW claims he's killed 6 NPCs! I don't have any offensive spells on my toolbar (just healing and Psychic Scream), and certainly haven't killed anything, so there's something severely wrong with the database. Trying to decide if I want to start over or what...

I think even non-damaging spells like Psychic Scream now tag mobs immediately, so it's possible you scared mobs that other players killed while they were still tagged by you...
