December 2009.. I hit level cap (level 80) with my Orc Warlock.
So I WIN at WoW! Only a few times playing MMOs have I hit max level (third time in WoW and only other MMO was SWG). This is my first level 80. So Grimgar is retired in Orgrimmar for now.
On the way leveling I saved enough gold to get my Orc Death Knight a flying mount
and the ability to fly when he got to Northrend.
New Orc DK (and possible new main) ...
I decide not to take my oldest main (a Mage who was the first character I got to 60 in old WoW) to Northrend as I played cloth casters for most of my time in WoW. So the plate wearing Death Knight is a blast.
DK is just bad ass; plate wearing, have a pet Ghoul, their own special mounts and great some spells and abilities.
So off to play in Northrend and play the few zones I skipped with Grimgar. Except to do the quests to get Axe of Frozen Death in Borean Tundra.
So 2010 will be plate wearing year.
