Rogue Update: Hitting Level 60 and Lock Picking 300

Finally! Hehe, yeah Auslander hit 60 last night and I’m really happy about it. It’s one of those wow, this character has really grown up sort of milestones.

60 was the original level cap back before either expansion to WoW. It’s still kind of special in my eyes. It’s not just a time when the character is able to get a flying mount, but it also means that they’re really starting to show some of the power that their class has to offer.

For Auslander, that power is just how quickly she destroys things. That’s something that you just have to love.

Rogues also have the ability to pick locks. With each level they’re able to push that skill higher and higher. After hitting 60, Auslander could push her lock picking ability to 300. The trainer sent me to Tyr’s Hand out in the Eastern Plaguelands. A pretty funky place. Now the trick here is that it’s not the chests that spawn randomly that actually help you boost lock picking, nope, it’s the junk boxes that you pick pocket off of the Scarlet Crusaders that really help boost your lock picking skill. Not to mention the fact that only one or two of them held only coppers in their pockets. Evidently fanaticism is a lucrative line of employment. >.<

But I digress. I also snuck through Tyr’s Hand and out the other side. Know what’s out there? It’s the Death Knight noob land. It’s a totally empty ruin. I mean totally empty. I’ve explored a lot of places in WoW, but this is one of the few places where not only are there no mobs to bother you, but, there’s no one else either.

I’ll probably spend more time here when I feel like I need to get away for a bit and feel the need to do some more exploring. I really only made it through the mobs in Tyr’s Hand via my Rogue Stealth ability. Really this is what makes Rogues the coolest class in the game. I’m able to hit stealth, an pretty much, go anywhere I want to go.

Well, except for Orgimmar, found that out the hard way hehe, oh well, I’ll just have to wait until I hit 80 to try that one again. I’ll have to remember to pack my fishing pole.

The only real downside to the evening was that I just missed a friend when I logged over to my bank alt. Guess that’s what I get for not checking my friends list before logging over. Too funny…

Well later folks
