Apr 26th 2006 9:51AM TheFlyingOrc is correct. Which is why many many people have alts. Post-60, unless you PvP, you HAVE to raid. You have to dedicate 4 hour blocks to the game to do anything useful.
Rep grinding is horrible, I for one do not want to spend hours and hours killing timbermaws or bugs.
Pre-60 WoW is a casual MMORPG, post-60 it's almost as hardcore as you can get imo.
Apr 26th 2006 9:46AM Simple, do 5-man instances from level 55 on. BRD, LBRS, Strat and Scholo. You'll be grinding gear and leveling. From level 55 on I don't watch my xp bar, just concentrate on getting loot.
Apr 24th 2006 6:16PM 1) Dire Maul was introduced, 3 new 5 man instance right there.
2) 20 man ZG and 20 man AQ also introduced
3) tier 1.5 sets introduced
4) BG grind also introduced
5) introducing lower level 'sets' is a bad idea. By the time you collect everything you'll have outgrown the set by then.
