I have an ambitious goal for the new year. Get all my toons to 80 while still raiding on my Death Knight.
Why? One, I enjoy leveling and it fits my play schedule nicely. I usually have an hour every afternoon which is just enough time for a few quests or some farming. Questing is more rewarding to me and I like seeing the dings.
Two, a few of these toons I feel an attachment too. Huntomen was my first toon I rolled. I abandoned him on Nazjatar at level 36 and rerolled Omenator and leveled him to 70 there before I changed servers and founded a guild with a couple friends. Omenator was also the first toon I raided with before I knew how to be serious about raiding. I rolled Bearcat because I wanted to tank. I'm sure most of you know, you just feel more involved when you are taking the bosses best shots staring at his knees.
The remainders I dual boxxed using refer a friend to take them all to 60 in the run up to wrath so I could have a better understanding of what each class is capable of. I surprised myself by liking the warrior, mage, and shaman the most.
So now I have 9 toons between 60 and 71 in addition to my main and I want them all 80 with epic flight. That's a tall order especially since I currently have less than 1,000g.
So I'll ask myself why again. I enjoy the challenge and more importantly I believe a good tank and raid leader has a thorough understanding of what each class can bring to a raid. That way you are better positioned to get the most out of the group at hand to kill the boss.
So now the only question is which do I start with?
