Man, I don't get it. No matter how hard I try, I can't get an alt to even 40. Either I start to lose interest in them, or I can't remember where to go next, or somehow I skip a quest and then everything is killing me, or something.
My one friend suggested a levelling guide. Now, I'm kind of iffy about them. It seems more like cheating than WoWhead or Thottbot. Not to mention, these things cost money. Now, I have to scrape money together to pay for my WoW subscription; I can't really afford to pay $30+ on the side just to level another character to 70.
Maybe it's the fact that my first character is restoration and it takes three times as long to get anything done on her, and that I can't afford epic flight form for her yet, so gathering mats takes an eternity, and my slow computer can't handle the huge influx of people on the island, and that my epic purple armor costs so frickin' much to repair...
Some people just seem to have the knack for it. I have a friend who has a hunter and a priest at 70, with a warrior almost there. She's never used a levelling guide, and she did most of it on her own. She's also been playing about half as long as I have. It seems like talent is almost required to get this done!
Maybe I just don't have the levelling gene. With my highest level alt at 38 and remaining there (she's kind of twinked, and I find I don't enjoy her playstyle) I feel like I'm never gonna see the raid past the little green health bars.
Then again, perhaps this summer I'll have more time...but I'll also want to spend that time doing things like working or seeing my at-home friends. Gah! What is a resto druid to do? Maybe the comments will have helpful hints on how to get a character up to 70 while keeping my druid out of the poor house. Hint hint nudge nudge readers.
