|Visiting Thrall at the Maelstrom|
I guess I will level him all the way to 90 (or at least 600 mining skill) so I can start making Living Steel without getting help from others. Then I will probably go back to Kanter and return to leveling Archeology which I deserted some place in the 200s. As mentioned previously, Vial of the Sands is my long term goal now. I will need to start selling things rather than just emailing back and forth between my characters, but with max level herbalist, alchemist, miner, blacksmith, tailor and jewelcrafter, I don't think it should be a problem. I also have my mage, Kantrina, that I left at level 75 and though I have leveled her enchanting (for disenchanting), I would like to level Engineering as well. I found the Jeeves recipe and I'd like to make it along with some of the other toys.
One fun side task happened when I was visiting Uldum for the first time via Tanaris. I got a whisper from someone who had been portalled there and was trying to get to Rachet. I recommended going to Theramore, then Menethil then Booty Bay and finally take the boat to Rachet, but he didn't know how to get to Theramore. I led him through the flooded Thousand Needles, but, because he couldn't fly, that took a little while. It was my first chance to see how drastically it had changed. We then travelled through Dustwallow Marsh and I left him on the boat to Menethil. He was genuinely grateful and I was glad to be able to help someone out. One advantage of casual gaming is that if plans change, it is never a big deal.
