Late to the party but eventually you get there for the second time at that with a little play time playing entirely the same spec you always played of course. Better late than never, but its good to get there eventually little by little. I dinged 80 tanking a puging a Utgarde Pinnacle run and was so busy barely say the ding and forgot to take a screen shot of the achievement flash across the screen. Oh well, 80!
That's my stats when I hit lvl 80 with some crafted gear I had a guildie craft along the way that was sitting in the bank. I read my own old blog posts after all. But getting to 540 Defense was very easy, I was there the moment I got there.
Equipped some new gear at 80 as well so only wearing one piece of green gear in a Trinket slot. All my gear is enchanted so that was no problem getting that done with my mats. All the Glyph slots are filled so looking good. I noticed in the AH on my server there is never any: Glyph of Seal of Vengeance, you know those things can sell as a Inscriptor. I had to buy a 5 pack of Ink of the Sea for 8g from AH to have someone make the Glyph. I looked for it for days and never saw any.
I just enjoyed puging along the way when needed, farming for fun whatever was needed for mats. Doing whatever I needed relaxing along the way. As for now. I'll still quest for fun as I do need to build back up my financial warchest and make a bit more money somehow. For the most part I just enjoy fishing at the fishing hole.
I haven't though much as yet of going out my way to do any real achievements. But if I could get a achievement that's worthwhile to me in how I play this game its 0-80 entirely (100%) as a Protection Paladin. I saw a recent WoWinsider blog post that ask what if you can have a title any title that says something about you, Pick a Title, any Title. Well for me its a none other than for all that's obvious: "The Ardent Defender" What else would you expect me to call it :)
As for now not in any hurry to be a Raider and doing any great deal of raiding. I hate burnout, been there too many times in the course of this blog.
