But when I got there I was in for a bit of a shock.
Everything wasn't dying as fast as it was in Outlands. At 67 my Shaman was plowing through mobs left and right, outfitted in mainly greens and a few quest reward blues. With Shamanistic Rage, and my two ghost wolves I could pop out at a regular interval, I had nearly no downtime.
Enter Northrend, and enter the difference.
Things took half my health and mana to kill, I couldn't really do two mobs at once without taking some health or mana potion, and my miss rate almost doubled. This is the fourth time I've brought a toon to Northrend and leveled, but the first time that I did it at 68. I was expecting a transition much like when you go to Outlands at 58. However this was quite a bit rougher.
After questing for about an hour I got a couple weapons and increased my total HP by about a thousand. This definitely helped, but it still felt a little odd. Maybe they need to buff Shamans?
I'm interested to hear what you all think of the step from Outland to Northrend at 68. Too hard or too easy?
