Allow me to first point out that in general I don’t really do caffeine well. I don’t drink it too often, so when I do man o man is it entertaining. I chose to sleep before the release of MoP, get up at 3AM and level until I couldn’t keep my eyes open. This only kinda worked…
5 Year Olds and Their Brains
So when I was 5 and got excited about something that would be happening the next day, I couldn’t fall asleep if you threatened me with certain death, let alone if you threatened I couldn’t go the next day, so I managed to perfect the art of “faking it” something that has stood to be one of the more invaluable skills in my life time.
So Monday it’s about 7pm and I’m laying in bed, “faking it” hoping this will eventually lead to a wonderful slumber.
So 12am on Tuesday I’m laying in bed “faking it” realizing that there is no sleep in my future. Granted I probably managed around 2 hours of “sleep”, that weird thing where technically your asleep, but really you can hear and feel everything as if you’re awake.
2:30am rolls around I get my sorry ass out of bed, and I am rip roaring and ready to roll, lets get this panda shit started!
My Utter Amazement
First it goes live early! Second, at least for my server, which is a PvP high pop it goes smoothly. No real glitches, Org is only taking several years to load in, and Alliance Mammoths are standing on dailies quest givers, but beyond that it was seamlessly done.
I’m not going to talk about the actual questing, or dungeons just yet, cause that will take way more time then me rushing a post, like this morning, but I will say I LOVE this expansion. It’s beautiful, I’m ENJOYING the questing, which is something that rarely happens.
The zones are breathtaking, the music isn’t as majestic as WoTLK, but I plan to buy the soundtrack, the Inn music is probably my favorite and has me laughing whenever I go in to rest.
Hour 21, Yup I’m Done
I made it to hour 21 of being awake and called it quits, we’d made it to 1 bar from 88, and that was through the MASS amounts of PvP on my server, I feel good about that, and will finish up to 90 today.
We ran Mogu’shan Palace before going to bed…healing something new when you’re that tired=HILARIOUS FRAPS! I will post the video at some point in the next week.
I certainly don’t want to spoil anything for readers, so I will leave you with, I don’t do alts because I hate leveling, I will have no problem running my other 2 85’s through Pandaria.
