I'm having a good time at level 60, any my 24 days to hit level 60 pales in comparison to how long I have played now. I've been with my guild through Dire Maul to Naxxramas and WoW is just getting better.

Granted, the new patch has MESSED up class balance and roles in PvE, but time will fix this I'm sure.

I've been playing with my 3v3 arena team a lot and we are kicking serious ass. I cant wait for the ladder to be implemented.

Up to 82 /played days, 12 of which got me to 60. Sure was something that kept me playing all the time.

Leveling to 60 however is a ton of fun as well. The thing is, the path to 60 and the endgame are pretty much two different games entirely. I'm actually in the process of leveling an alt and I'm having so much fun, I'm seriously considering playing him in the expansion rather than my main.

Players who pay people to level their characters are complete idiots and by the time they get on their high-level characters, they'll be horrible players because they have no idea how to play their class. These are the morons who wipe groups due to having no idea what they are doing. Paying someone to level your guy is the biggest waste of money imaginable in WoW, especially since you'll suck so bad that nobody will want you in a group or endgame guild.

I played for about 90 minutes tonight in 2560x1600 with 2xAA and 16xAF and the game ran butter smooth the whole time. The lowest it ever got was 25 FPS and averaged around 36FPs.

Absolutely gorgeous and I'm so glad it supports 16:10 natively.

But it is Vert - you lose some of the top and bottom, IMO only Hor + is proper 16:10

Nether Drakes are a PvP mount for topping the arena ladder, normal flying mounts cost 100g and epics cost 200g but the training is expensive. 1000g for normal flying mount training (60% speed bonus) and 5000g for epic flying mount training (250% speed bonus).

Ok, I heard that but I wanted to see if some one else had the same information. That price is ****ING stupid. I know you make a lot more money in Out Land but that is just plain dumb

I've heard rumors posted about (and note their rumors, I've seen no confirmation to); that Nether dragons might also be available through faction rep; similar to how the Frostsaber mount works presently. If this is true, one could get a such a mount by grinding rep, through a repeatable reputation quest (if the current pattern holds +75 rep) from 0 neutral to exalted status.

My experience doing this with Wintersaber trainers (currently like 3,000 honored), is that this is long, arduous (the frostsaber meat provisions quest had bad drop rates, and with the patch comming out everyone was grinding Winterfall furlbogs for firewater and ekos, making it hard to get the 5 shamy and to a lesser degree the 5 ursa per turn in.

It's a long haul, but if one could get it through rep; I might be up for giving it a shot. If one could possibly get this through rep as well, I'd be up for giving it a shot. However being in Hellfire peninsula (and having waited largely on going through the portal till I could go through with a friend); I'm far from being able to check the veracity of such speculation which has been given forth in the past.

Grow the hell up and learn a few things.
