As a wow player, I have a reasonable amount of skill. I love to AoE and I can level pretty well when I set my mind to it. The things that I lack are focus on a character and motivation to level. With news of some of the 3.1 goodies, both have been taken care of.
I never saw any tangible benefit to charging to the level cap, and as most of the people I know play on a PvP server, it was just too frustrating to level through ally infestation. I have since started playing primarily on a PvE server where that isnt an issue and the need to reach the level cap has started to be cultivated. I want the stormwind tabard.
Humans are my favorite race in the game, bar none, and its not just because I happen to be one lol. Ten percent extra rep is nothing to sneeze at and humans just look the best in my opinion. I have to have a nice looking beard on my guys, humans fit the bill. Also, from the time I first set foot in it, I have loved stormwind. It may not be the easiest to find things in (a distinction I believe belongs to Undercity), but it is by far the best looking.
I may never get the suneater (maybe I can convince my new guildies to run heroic mechanar a bunch, I still want it because it just looks awesome), I can definately get a stormwind tabard (so I can look just like the stormwind guards).
I had a whole big post planned about what I did this weekend but its basically hit 68, should be 70 next weekend (which makes first 2 70s the same class lol), hit 350 blacksmithing and did a few levels with the mage. It took a lot more work than it sounds like.
