Welcome to today's edition of Ask WoW Insider, in which we publish your questions for dissection by the peanut gallery -- now with extra snark and commentary by one of our writers. This week a level 60 writes in:
I'm a newbie to World of Warcraft and got hooked to it quickly, after trying the 10day trial, and find myself frequently checking WoW Insider for latest news and updates.
I'm going to ding lvl 60 within the next couple of days and was wondering what is there to do at level 60 (besides upgrading to the next expansion). What can i do at level 60 that I couldn't do at levels 56+
i can upgrade my mount/armor/weapons ...... but is that it?
I like dungeons a lot, they are fun and I noticed that I've become eligible for raids at level 56, however I haven't done one yet.... so maybe that's it..... Raids.
I'm using this page as a guide http://wow.joystiq.com/2008/03/24/wow-rookie-raid-101/
I see all the cool things you can do at level 70 and I could possible get the upgrade and work my way up to it, but, what else can I do at level 60?
Sadly, the reality is you're going to need to pony up for the expansion. Oh, I could tell you of people still doing old-world raids (in fact, I answered such a question not too long ago), but, Blizzard and the players have largely left the 60-and-under content behind and moved on to TBC. Plus, if you really like instances, you'll love them in the expansion; personally I feel they're the best in the game.
Also, like it or not, Wrath is going to be launching soon-ish (in that "could be this year, could be the year after" way) and with it the level cap is raising to 80. I'd recommend sucking it up and hitting 70 before its launch.
Anyone have any advice for him if he delays getting the expansion?
