Breakfast Topic: What's your release day plan?


Yesterday, we posted an article discussing how discipline priest Derevka was setting himself up for the best endurance on patch day in his realm first race to level 90. Now, I admire Derevka enormously, and all the people who are putting heart, body and soul into the realm first race. It's exciting, it's cooperative, it's fantastic.

But it's not for me. I am not a fan of questing, but I might look around at some quests before I dive into the dungeons. My patch day plans, given that I'll likely be in either London or Paris for the launch, mostly involve sleeping! Quite the opposite of Derevka's, then. I will, however, probably just log on long enough to race change my shaman to a pandaren. Would I pay that race change money for more rested XP bonus? You bet. Oh, and you might have noticed I'm a fan of the pandas.

I likely won't roll a low level alt, I already have a predefined leveling order for my characters, and that will probably be done before there's a monk. I'm hoping that my Battle Chest will arrive before too long so I can get a Recruit-a-Friend character up and running.

So, I will likely log on and run some quests, heal some dungeons, but I'll be in no hurry. How about you? Are you pushing for a realm first? Are you chilling out? Are you going to roll a pandaren or level your main? Are you going to bother with professions from the out, or are you planning to just get to 90 as fast as you can?

It's open warfare between Alliance and Horde in Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft's next expansion. Jump into five new levels with new talents and class mechanics, try the new monk class, and create a pandaren character to ally with either Horde or Alliance. Look for expansion basics in our Mists FAQ, or dig into our spring press event coverage for more details!
