Dear The Queue,My orc DK is probably going to hit 80 tonight. He's had a very easy time leveling with a few heirlooms, almost no instances, questing a little in each Northrend zone, and only has a 144 avg ilvl.My question is, how screwed will he be if he heads straight for Mt. Hyjal/Vashj'ir? Should I plan on more questing for gear in Icecrown/Storm Peaks, or will that not be enough to bridge the gap and I'll need to do some instances for 200 gear? Or should I just stop worrying because DKs are OP and should fear nothing? Will only the first few Cata quests be tough, but their rewards will have me caught up in no time?Thanks,Grovin

Step 1: Activate a two-handed weapon spec. Doesn't matter which one.Step 2: Go to Mount Hyjal.Step 3: Do 2 quests, only one of which actually involves fighting anything.Step 4: Get this reward: http://www.wowhead.com/item=57294Congratulations, you are now fully prepared to take on the enemies in the starting zones.

Honestly, just go buy some appropriate Cata greens. You can start wearing them at 78 and this will give you all the boost you need in the starter zones. It will also make you pretty epic for the last two levels of Northrend :-)

My suggestion would be to buy a few cheap cata greens. These will boost your gear far more than anything else can and you don't need TOO much gear to be able to start questing in cataclysm and if you can do at least the first few quests you should be fine.

You will be very squishy at that ilevel. It is likely possible, but you are going to have to stop and eat or bandage a lot until you get some gear replaced.Buy some Cata greens and your leveling experience will be more fun. My latest baby alt was around ilevel 200 when she hit Mt. Hyjal and it was fine. That was with several Cata greens and some 187 blues to even it out.
