On Saturday, she hit level 60. It was in the middle of an instance run (into Blackrock Depths) with friends, which was just the way I wanted to hit that milestone.
On Sunday morning, Marendyn went into Alterac Valley for the first time. (I want to hit Sergeant for the very-tanky cloak and for the discount on an epic mount.) I had the good fortune to join a group with good organization; the honor from that one victory catapulted me from 'never PvPed' up two levels to Grunt.
On Sunday afternoon, we took a four-man trip into Sunken Temple, which we cruised through smoothly. I was the tank for the group; I felt proud of taking 82% of the damage for the run.
This morning, I tried some Arathi Basin (PVP will definitely be a learning experience; I got badly outplayed by another druid, but I managed to at least slow her down until reinforcements arrived).
I then tried a stealth run into Blackrock Depths. I managed to avoid the dog patrols that see through stealth, bring down Lord Roccor, and get the Idol of Ferocity that I wanted, on my first try.
Our guild has gone through a sea change recently.
For a long time, we had a small population of high-level characters, and those characters were mostly soloing specialists. We had a lot of hunters and shamans.
Now, though, we have a new wave of 60s. Our roster of active characters over 50 now includes two feral druids, two warriors (with another warrior as a friend of the guild), two healing-oriented priests, a restoration-focused druid, and two mages. We'll be able to run a lot more high-level instances with this crew.
Mazumok is somewhat jealous of Marendyn's opportunity.
