Late to the Party

I started Cataclysm a couple of days late - Thursday instead of Tuesday night, for my time zone - but am thoroughly enjoying the visual effects of the new zones...or should I say zone, since I've really only quested in Vashj'ir?

One thing I'm rather surprised at is how quickly I'm levelling; in previous expansions it took me several weeks to get to level cap, but being 82 already and only halfway through my first zone tells me that 85 may only take me a week or so.

I'm not sure how to feel about that. Sure, it would be good to get to level cap and start raiding again so quickly, but it seems so short... oh well, I suppose I'll have more time to go back and quest in the lowbie areas, which so far are proving to be brilliant; each zone has its own story and background (I would definitely recommend going through all of them, if you're interested in lore).

And of course, I'm really happy to finally have that last stable slot open, even though I still think there's not enough room for all the pets I want!

I wanted to offer him a stable slot...

I would have submitted a GM ticket to demand that Grimclaw be given a new friend, but luckily he found another survivor to hang out with... was definitely not happy seeing the above scene, I felt so sorry for the poor bear! :(

Meanwhile: Anyone else trying desperately to finish all of the new "old world" quests before Tuesday? I managed to finish quite a few zones, but still have so many to go... and I feel it's important to try and get through them all because there's a lot of background lore for what's happening in Cataclysm. So much to do, so little time!
