Monhay of Dunemaul-EU writes to us with a rather interesting story about a guildmate of his. According to Monhay, Oasie, an undead warrior in Rigor Mortis, decided that he wanted to level up to 70 without ever setting foot in Outlands.
He chose to grind on the level 60ish mobs available in the game, from Winterspring to Silithus to the Plaguelands. When those stopped giving experience, he headed to the mobs in front of Karazhan and running the Caverns of Time: Old Hillsbrad instance. To upgrade his gear, he PVPed and surfed the auction house. At 4:07 AM his time this Friday, he walked through the Dark Portal for the first time.
Most people probably have the same question right now as I do: Why the heck would you do this? Most of us found it painful enough to get through levels 20-58 of post-BC alts, knowing that Outland was there with its tantalizing quest rewards and good experience. I can't imagine buying the expansion and waiting six freaking months to see any of the content. But Monhay said that Oasie had a very good reason: he heard how much money you got for doing Outland quests at 70, and wanted that money to buy his sister's epic riding skill. Awww.
