Relevelling to 80: Easier or Harder?

Hey all.

Yesterday, Who's Healing turned 1. Woohoo! I never thought I would still be writing about this a year on, but here we are.

I'm pretty happy with the way Rexkicker is for now, I'll keep chipping away at the Sons of Hodir Rep so I can get a better set of blue shoulders, but its so painfully slow.

Raiding has started to pick up again, and I scored the Libram of Radiance from Naxx. I'm not sure how this stacks up against the Venture Co Libram but meh I'll see how it goes.

Grinding to 80... again

I've levelled my druid to 74! Its so different trying to relevel the second time around though.

Firstly, its a heck of a lot faster, all that stumbling through, figuring stuff out, and well... just enjoying the scenery is gone. Its down to hardcore speed levelling, and organising stuff like getting an Overcharged Capacitor made BEFORE you hit up Borean Tundra.

Sure its easier now that there's a heck of a lot less ganking going on and less competition for mobs. Also the bonus XP and the BoA shoulders are a massive boost!

On the downside, there are chronically more r-tards floating about that are making pugs hellish. For example, I got invited to a group as the healer with four other dks that had no clue! Why are these groups so bad? My thoughts are that its coming down to badly played alts or are mains that are so bad that they still can't get to 80!
I'm starting to really think twice about joining pugs but there's not really any other option when you're trying to level an alt and your guildies are off running heroics. Actually, I don't like asking guildies to 'help out' on a lowbie run, cause I know I don't like getting pestered to do lowbie runs on my main.

So yeah, pug groups have been bad but surely a pug raid wouldn't be so bad?!

LFM MC Achievement

Seeing these words in trade, the thoughts in my head were, awesome do an old school raid and get the achievement. Several hours later, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

Not much to say but lets put it this way.... when putting together a pug raid, a single level 65 priest doesn't cut it for heals! Oh and getting a tank would be helpful as well.

Thanks, time just flew! When I look back to my first post I can't believe how much it changed in only a year.
