New Toons

What’s better at the end of an expac then to make new toons?

I was looking through my list of characters I have spread across way way too many realms and noticed a level 1 Orc Warrior sitting neglected in Orgrimmar. I haven’t had much luck in levelling Warriors, I have a ton of sub level 10s dotted around the place so thought I should really give it another go.

I took her up to the undead starting area which is one of my favourite starting zones. I love the north of Eastern Kingdoms in general with the green countryside and castle theme. And the quests and NPC dialogue is pretty funny at times.

In full heirlooms and prot spec she’s levelling really quickly. I started dungeon spamming once she hit level 15 and as a tank the queues are ridiculously short so she hardly ever spends much time out in questing. Now that I’m a few hours into playing a prot warrior, it’s actually quite a fun class to play.


She’s sitting around 63 at the moment and filling in the slightly longer dungeon queue times that seem to have hit in Outland with a bit of questing here and there. I love Outland transmog items from quests so hopefully I’ll find her enough gear to transmog out of the stock standard heirloom look she’s rocking currently.

The other new toon is a Mistweaving Panda monk that’s levelling pretty much solely through dungeon running with a friend who started a Panda warrior tank at the same time. I’m not sure how I feel about monk healing at low levels. I haven’t levelled a monk healer -the monk I have at 93 didn’t become a healer until level 90 so I don’t have any experience healing low levels with one. But, her heals feel really lacklustre compared to the  other healers I’ve levelled. I was thinking it might just be me except I had a monk healer in a dgn when I was on my warrior girl say much the same thing so maybe it’s not just the way I’m playing her.

I have a half-baked idea to try to get my warrior to 100 before Legion but seeing we’re hardly any time at all from both the pre-patch and the expac itself I have no idea if that’s going to happen. But so far she’s pretty fun and after 6 odd years of pretty much only playing healers the role change is pretty interesting. The idea of tanking high levels is a little scary though so we’ll see how she goes when I hit 90+

My poor little monk might take forever if at all to get to 100, especially as she’s currently being played as part of a pair.. but we’ll see how she goes. As my other monk is Alliance and I still have the long-term goal of 1 of every class to max level on both factions – she’s in with a chance 🙂
