The first is probably always the sweetest. I was such a noob when I hit 80 the first time on my paladin. Mismatched gear (it was all plate-but some dps-heals-tanking) foolish philosophies (thinking I could tank heroics with resilience - which was theoretically possible just not optimal or appreciated). I don't have any fond memories of the dinging just relief it was over. I was glad to be able to wear some of the cool 80 purples I had got from WG (at the time it was 200lvl and 213 were just coming out). Back then you had to wait til 70 to fly and it was a tad more expensive so I think in that sense dinging 70 was probably more monumental for me. I also went around and got all the lvl 70 faction gear from the outland factions and used all of it til lvl 80 (crazy I know). Now of course I know exactly what gear to pick while leveling and set my goal for lvl 78 when I can make crafted gear for the toons spec. I am seriously thinking about leveling a second pally (ret/prot first one is prot/holy) and having more fun the second time around and see how it is when you actually know a little more :)
