Yesterday, during a Serpents Passage map, Tirew hit rank 40! This is my first character to reach the level cap in WAR. His renown Rank is 41, so I just had to wait for the XP to catch up. He actually leveled during a fight with a Witch Elf, which I thought was appropriate.
Tirew, formally known as Werit, was the first character I created during the Head Start period. It has taken about 5 months for me to hit the level cap. In game time, I am at 14 days. He was born on the Averheim server, which sadly had to be merged. When I came to Badlands, Werit was already taken. That is where we get Tirew from.
Overall, I have quite enjoyed the last 5 months in Warhammer Online. I never felt that the leveling process was a grind. This is likely due to the fact I could level however I wanted. I would say that I spent 95% of my time leveling by RvR. Sure it was slower, but I never felt rushed. I was having fun throughout the 40 levels, not just the end.
So what's next for Tirew? He will continue to take the fight to those dirty Destruction. There may be an end-game dungeon mixed in here or there as well. Having a couple Sentinel pieces could not hurt. Maybe I'll get lucky and grab some Conqueror armor, of course I only see a piece drop about once a week.
You may also start to hear about an alt now. I have an IB and WH both near Rank 12. I also want to try a WL... so who knows what alt I will seriously work on?
