My Human paladin Bargas has finally reached level 58 and I can enter Outland for the first time. I’ve never been to Outland, because as I said in my last post about this particular character, this 58 paladin is the farthest I have gotten in any MMORPG, but a pretty long margin.
I’m glad to finally be here, but part of me wishes the level cap was still at 60. I’ve begun to get pieces of the Lightforge armor set, which was one of the endgame sets of armor before Burning Crusade moved the level cap to 70. If the cap was still at 60, I’d focus on getting this gear, but with it up to 80, I’m afraid that by the time I get all of the gear, I’ll be far past it’s usefulness.
Right after getting into Outland, I got into a fight with a level 61 Orc warrior. It was me and a 58 Night Elf death knight versus him. The death knight was killed fairly early, and it was down to me and the Orc. I used divine shield to protect myself for a bit and heal up, a luxury he didn’t have, but he still killed me. However… he died at the very end. I think that with the final blow that killed me, my retribution aura finished him off.
I’ll be glad to explore Outland, and even more glad when I finally reach 80 – that way I can begin to get a set of endgame gear without fear of outgrowing it before I even finish the set.
