My Rules for Wrath

Since I have started playing Wrath of the Lich King, I set up some ground rules:

  1. I will read every quest. In the past, I have been known to skim over the quest dialog. This time I will read every single quest I accept. Level 80 is pretty my the end of the game for me, so I hope to get a good story at least.
  2. No QuestHelper. I will not use any addons like QuestHelper. Don't get me wrong, I really like QuestHelper, and I would certainly use it for an alt. Since the content is new, I do not just want to rush from point A to point B.
  3. No crafting. If I see a mineral node I will mine it, but I will not 'farm' anything. Blacksmithing is a harsh mistress, and is actually not very fun for me. If I need an item, and I have the materials I will craft it, but other than that, no effort put into crafting.
  4. No Reputation. Sure those rep vendors have some nice stuff, but I will not go out of my way to earn their favor. Really, what is the point? I will not be raiding and any pre-80 equipment will be replaced.
  5. Do what is fun. Probably the most important rule. If at any time I start to not enjoy myself, move on from that activity or enlist some help.
So those are my rules for playing Wrath. We will see how they go. Anyone else setting up some boundaries?

(WAR Note: I did play some WAR last night too and have WAR-related posts in the works)


6. Beer. Lots of beer! It is dwarf questing requirement

When I do finally engage in a little Lich King next year, I'll be following the same rules as you. Except on my Death Knight. When I make him, I'll be using Quest Helper to get from 55 to Northrend. Then I'll shut it down.

I really didn't enjoy leveling through Outland as much as I thought. I prefer the more familiar wilds of Earthy Azeroth.

I liked the Lich King, DK starter zone. Technically speaking brilliant.
