I finally got my first character to level 70 in World of Warcraft at around 2 am this morning. Of course, then I had to go buy my flying mount and mess around for another couple of hours before actually going to bed.

The last time I hit the level cap with a character was back when it was at 60. Back then a lot of the end game wasn't even really there yet. There were few high level instances and PvP was still in the process of being implemented. The end result was that I pretty much just stopped playing, and while I came back to the game a few times, I never really came back to that character.

Now there's a number of high level instances and a fairly extensive PvP system in place, so I'm curious to see if it will hold my interest. Of course, I can't actually do PvP on my desktop for some reason. The game runs fine normally, but when I enter a PvP instance it slows to a crawl as soon as I encounter an enemy player and usually kicks me out within a few seconds. It runs fine on my wife's laptop, so I can only PvP when she's not using her computer.

I just realized I haven't tried doing PvP since replacing my NIC about a week ago, so I'll have to log on later and see if it works now. In the meantime, I think I'll go back to bed...

You have way too much free time :)

That's a matter of perspective ;-)

As one of my friends who has stuck with WoW since the beginning pointed out when I hit 70... "Congratulations on hitting 70... two years after the release of the expansion [that raised the level cap to 70]!"

For those who are curious, I had just over 12 days of playtime in when I hit 70... that's somewhere around 290 to 300 hours... so yeah, I probably do have too much freetime :-P
