Following that the path to 60 gets a bit more difficult as leveling up slows down. Once again I tried to mix it up by weaving some dungeons in but it turned out to be a really bad decision. It is a lot harder to off-heal or off-tank at these levels now. Furthermore it is quite a long wait to get a replacement as I guess people pretty much rush through these few levels.
At this point I had around a day’s worth of game time. Stratholme was also worth the run. It was a lot less clunkier. The good thing is that they entirely changed the quests at the badlands and it is worth a look. (Although not as hilarious as that in the hinterlands)
I was at bloodwatcher point (blood elf horde if you want to farm some reputation points) end at a digsite with ancient robots and a mini game that was rather fun. Soon after that though I decided to move on to the searing gorge.
Having a crusader enchant on your weapon was still rather helpful too even though it costs a bomb at the auction house you may be able to find a friend enchanter or a person who has farmed scarlet mobs to enchant one for you! ITts a lot cheaper if you can get righteous orbs from stratholme.
If not it is pretty pricey as you need 2 righteous orbs that can go from 20g to 80g at random times from the auction times and large brilliant shards that comes out to about the same each. A reasonable price to pay for the full thing would be just about over 300g I guess.
Without the full set of heirlooms but with a guild +10% bonus I managed to hit lvl 53 in 28 hours. Took about another hour plus or so to hit 55.
Soon I’ll be off to stonard and the blasted lands, which would take a much longer time to clear through.
