It’s been a long time since I last posted, so allot has happened. Larthas is, of course, level 80 now and has been for a long time. He got his epic flying mount and has explored the entire world, earning him the title of “the Explorer”. He also trained his mining, cooking, fishing and first aid to a maximum of 450. His blacksmithing is 442, but he learned all the available recipes, so it’s effectively maxed. He bought a Titansteel Destroyer in an auction and has been working hard to upgrade the rest of his equipment. He obtained an egg from the Oracles, but it failed the hatch. Now he’s nurturing another one. Recently, the gates of Ulduar have opened, and yesterday, he signed up for the Argent tournament. Pretty soon, Noblegarden will start, so that’s another thing to look forward to.

Also, a new hero was born in Larthas’ shadow, by the name of Sahtral. He is a gnome mage and has reached level 4. He will not progress as fast as Larthas, though.

I finally got WotLK, so that’s what I’ve been playing for the last two weeks. I can’t believe I didn’t get it earlier. Larthas is now level 74 and still advancing. He replaced most of his level 70 armor set. All that’s left are the gloves, but they have a replacement pending on level 75. This is the main reason why I haven’t been posting lately. Not much to say about playing a MMORPG except “complete addiction”. 

I’ve spent most of my time training fishing and cooking. I am now a master cook and fisherman. I was also trying to catch Old Ironjaw in Ironforge, but even after almost a thousand fish caught, still no luck. Today, I also tried my luck in some battlegrounds, but I didn’t get much honor. I plan to buy Wrath of the Lich king pretty soon. Also, a few days ago, I’ve completed a couple of heroic outland dungeons with my guild mates.

I got my reputation with Argent Dawn to Exalted, while Timbermaw Hold and Cenarion Circle revere me. I’ve also been raising my reputation to honored with various factions so I can finally complete an armor set. I still need one item of the set, so I’m planning to accomplish this in the next few days. I’ve also been completing some various dungeons, but nothing major.

Since I’m at my max level, I’ve spent most of my time earning money (unsuccessfully), clearing dungeons, doing raids, and raising my reputation with various factions. I got my Argent Dawn reputation half way to exalted. I plan to raise it the rest of the way in the next few days. After that, I think I’ll try my luck with Timbermaw Hold. I’m also trying to get a set equipment pieces everywhere I can. Oh, I forgot to mention, I finally have my flying mount! Since it’s a normal flying mount, it’s quite slow, but at least I can get everywhere in outland now.

I finally reached level 70 tonight. This means the training is over for me until I get Wrath of the Lich King. I completed a few dungeons and tried raising my reputation at the various factions. Tonight, I fought Onyxia with my guild again, and again didn’t get anything. I plan to earn money for my flying mount next, but I need to raise my reputation some more first.
