    Nice one!
    Man, I remember dinging 70… dinging 80 is similar I’m guessing.
    One of the best feelings evar.

    Now, where’s the next line-up to Naxx?

  4. MW says:

    Many, many grats!

  5. Jemhadar says:

    Oops you dinged again XD GZ

  6. Loronar says:

    Tux is lagging pretty far behind isn’t he (or is it she)?

  7. Gratz! Question, is that the SSO Axe? Did it really last you that long? Grats again!

  8. Chaintrap says:

    Massive congratulations! What are you planning to do next?

  9. Ursinus says:

    @ Loronar – Yeah, Tux is 77 and Locke is 78. With a couple of brief exceptions those are the only two pets I’ve been using the entire time I was in Northrend. I do think it’s cause of all the non-kill quests.

    @ Dradis – That is Legacy from the Opera Event in Karazhan and yes, it lasted me that long although I could have replaced it sooner if I wanted. In fact as of now I am sporting the Icier Barbed Spear from the Amphitheater of Anguish Event in Zul’Drak.

    Major gratz! :D
    I can’t wait to see what happens next.

  21. Faulsey says:

    Congrats on 80!

    Pet leveling is really my only problem with Northrend. In Outlands (after the 3.0.2 patch), it was easy as pie to keep three pets leveled with me – I usually had them all leveled by 80% through my level. In Northrend I gave up trying to level them all, and just stuck with my Ferocity pet. Who needs a tenacity pet to level? Not I! -cackles-

  23. Alorina says:

  33. Tzia says:

    Grats on 80 Pike! And good to know that Legacy can serve that far. ^_^

  34. Zigystardust says:
