Firsts

Two firsts will happen in WoW for me this evening. One is that I will run through my very first instance in the game. The Deadmines. I've actually had this quest in my log for about a week now, and wanted to wait for a day when I could actually spend a few hours exploring the entire area of the dungeon. Also, I wanted to be a little above the level curve(I am 24 now). I'll be running this with my friend and fellow FP member Spugnor(who is also a RL friend) or his alt, as well as maybe Potionyguy(Dragonlgnd's alt, and also a RL friend) if both work and his crap PC don't keep him offline. I have recieved some offers from 60's in the guild to help do this run with me(thanks Vanin and Sanctity), but in the end, it comes down to one thing. I NEED XP. I can't get to 60 myself if I'm only getting 6-10 experience per kill in semi-major areas. The more stuff I kill, the closer I get to Onyxia and AQ's and all the yummy, purple-dropping goodness that I know I'm nowhere near being able to do at this time. Also, in completing The Deadmines(in particular, VC), I will recieve my first blue! I'm tired of looking at all those semi-impressive greens on my hunter. It's time to get some color upgrades. I don't even know at this point what the next instance I will encounter will be, but I know that The Deadmines is about to choke on a nasty mouthful of Triggahapy...and his little dog, too!

Congrats man! I remember when I did the deadmines quest I kept the reward until like lvl 40 lol! That's on both my Paladin and Hunter. You'll probably get more than one blue item; there are three bosses in Deadmines who drop blues!!

There are three bosses? Hmmm...I know Van Whats-his-face and that other gnoll-thing. What's the third, and is there a quest I should pick up on him before I go in?

oh, as an fyi, handing in quests gains you far more experience than killing, especially when you have 60s offering to help you.

It was my girlfriend's graduation gift on her graduation night and...wait...other firsts.

Ha ha! TMI, Soma...TMI! Oh, and I know I get good XP finishing quests, but I also need the XP from killing all the stuff. Especially since I know there is a whole bunch of stuff to kill. I gained an entire level just walking around and killing the Mo'groh Ogres near the Loch...even after I finished the Mercenaries quest. At 200+ experience a pop solo, it was a great place to go for some moderately easy leveling, as well as pretty decent loot. And I'm all about loot!

YAY! My first blue item! Sadly, it's armor(and not an awesome gun like I was hoping), but I love it all the same. In all actuality, this is really my second blue item...it's just the first one I kept. Before completing VC and getting the armor from the quest, I had gotten Lil Timmy's Peashooter as a random drop from Gobbler(of all creatures). It was nowhere near as good as the gun Zedek made for me(STILL can't thank you enough for that, btw!), so I sold it at the auction house...for 15 GOLD! I couldn't believe that! I made 15g's off an item that I deemed unworthy of even putting in the bank to give to another character later! Whoever bought that gun off of me...thanks! I soooo needed that cash, too. Artisan skinning is expensive!

Oooh I love DM...well...I loved questing in that whole Westfall area!! Its been a while since I've done DM. This brings back memories of me, Kasis, Dawnvisage, and Jove in our lower lvls. Good times...good times!

Hooray! My first...ummm...hat? Yes, at level 34, I finally have head gear. Actually, several other first have occured along the way. Some of which I am none too proud of, I must say. However, firsts are firsts, I suppose! I have done my first PvP battleground. Those are alot of fun, and I hope to do many more in the future. There are lots of others I just cannot think of now, but I am thoroughly enjoying the game, and cannot wait to see what other firsts I will achieve very soon!
