Depends what my work schedule is, but i'll probably be 90 in a week.
Made 250k gold so far, with 10-15k gold profit per day Im going to try to get 500k before MoP hits.
Learn the new abbilities get to know my chars!
learn the new ways of game play!
farming 40k gold.
pvping alot in beta
getting alot of computer gear:
new hard disk + ssd
and pre ordering mop CE ofc!
I have 25 quests completed in quest log, ready to turn in.
Got some more stuff to get, planning on doing it later today
"Special" Music Playlist for Leveling
Food (well not yet but i will have it the day exp is about to be released)
A good amount of sleep before the release
Yes, I'm going for Server First
Ingame music turned up all the way to enjoy the orchestra
Walking slowly to enjoy the scenery around me
Mounts and transmog sets farmed up so I'll look stylin' while doing so
Experimenting with updated talent trees on all of my 85s in Beta to see who could be my new main
Pimped out gaming PC for MoP, Diablo 3, and GW2 as well as other new releases in the pipeline
9-5 work as always, then come home and try to squeeze in a few quests before peak usage and switch to Diablo 3 when it's too crowded
Yeah, I rushed in Vanilla and not going to this time.
rushed all previous xpac's and had to wait weeks for guilds to catch up, this time i'm taking it easy.. will play first day no doubt, but wont be pushing anything.. except the occasional bowel movement.
I will be working that week so 4 hours a night for 5 days each week, hardly a race for me and I've got 7 85's to level up, 8 soon maybe 9 so.. I'll take my time on my alts but lvl my main as fast as 4 hours a night can get me. (except on weekends ofc)
Wash me away clean your body of me, erase all the memories they will only bring us pain, and I've seen all I'll ever need.
100 Flask of Winds?? I don't really see the point there..
totally agree. last xpac i whizzed to 85 on 2 alts before some of the guild had mains at 85. consequence of this was that some of the slowbies were primary raiders, so it was all held up for them to level.. which is fine ofc.. but it blew me out big time, i spent 2-3 weeks doing archaeology (when it was horrible) and it made me almost quit the game. /lesson learned
I'll be working when MoP launches so, it won't be anything too crazy. Start the download/install before I leave for work, try a bit of everything that night. I likely won't get into playing too much until the first weekend, anyways. Still, excited.
Ok well yeah maybe 100 flasks may be a bit too much, especially if I'm B-lining it straight to 90 shouldn't be more than 40 hours you think?
And Flasks + Pots + Food is crucial especially if you're going for server first... Even a kings buff + might helps immensely!
For myself: My Base Agility will be (with my trinket) 7767 -- From Food / Flask / Buffs - and Spamming potions of agility on cooldown for each quest mob kill --> I'll be up to roughly 9700 Agility... That's 25% higher, and if I can translate that into levels, even if it's only 10% faster per level, on a 8 hour level, that's near 50 minutes shaved off if not more... over 5 levels it's 4+ hours saved... which could definitely make the difference between server first or not! (or just help you get to sleep a lot earlier)
(Edit: For me, and other theory crafting / number crunching rogues would agree, we're just so buff-dependent for our dps/damage in raids, the same applies here )

That's some pretty intense preparation. Make sure to fit bathing in the out of game category somewhere :-P

Depends on when it launches, but most likely this is what I'll have prepared:
cleaned my room and put in an extra pc / screen - also made room for a few exercises to keep my mind awake
prepared lots of healthy snacks, fruits and water
Prepare a few hour long playlist with fitting music
Taken a big dump just before midnight (very important)
Saved up the 1 million gold that was my goal
Prepared a few hundred pots and a couple of cauldrons, expecting to be 90 about 10 hours in
Tested the beta through for the fastest way to level up, be that dungeons (with 4 other guildies all in BiS gear etc) or questing or both.
Emptied my bags?
