The Expansion Agenda—Where To Begin?
In 2006, when the release of the Burning Crusade was not too far away, I remember feeling rushed to level my paladin to the level cap before it was raised. I didn't think I'd manage to make it in time, but luckily for me I did, and with very little time to spare. In retrospect, this was also a bad thing, too, because by that time almost everyone had very little need or interest to go to instances like
, which I needed to do for the quest chain to get the
. Despite the setback, I was ready for the Burning Crusade expansion like most other people, and couldn't wait to start leveling my paladin again.
And then came the day of the expansion's release. As soon as I picked up my preordered copy of the Burning Crusade, I remembered thinking, "Forget my paladin, I want to play the new races!" That's right, the level 60 paladin into which I had put countless hours of work was abandoned because of a brand new Draenei Shaman on my character list. I spent a month or so leveling my shaman before I finally realized that all the time that I had put into my new shaman should have been used on my paladin instead. So, I deleted my shaman without any regrets. Even though I was a month behind on progress with my paladin, I had enough motivation to focus on leveling my paladin whenever I could play WoW. With the limited time available to play, my paladin finally reached level 70 on October 7th, 2007.
Now let's fast forward to the second half of 2008, when the Wrath of the Lich King expansion was close to release. Determined not to make the same mistake that I'd made almost two years earlier—and not to mention slightly burned out from playing a Death Knight in the Wrath of the Lich King beta—I decided not to focus on leveling a Death Knight very much until my paladin reached level 80. My plans didn't work out that way of course—but only because I was forced to cancel my account due to money being tight. I came back a month later, with an expansion key that a friend had generously donated to me, and played for about a month before I lost interest.
Anyway, now that the Cataclysm expansion is right around the corner, I want to start off by leveling my paladin straight away. But at the same time, especially after watching the BFF reports on
want to play the new races (especially Goblins, because who doesn't love blowing stuff to smithereens?). So, I want to hear how you all feel about this.
When Cataclysm is released, do you want to level your 80s first when the expansion is released, or do you want to level a Goblin or Worgen?
What do you think is more important to accomplish first?
