What's Your Plan For MoP Launch?

Postby Nikachelle » Fri Sep 21, 2012 6:48 am

So what's everyone planning on doing for MoP launch? Do you have the day off? The week off? What character are you leveling first, second, third, and why? Are you more interested in the storyline, or beating everyone to 90?

I think I asked this for Cataclysm launch as well - let's see what's changed this time around!

Personally, I'd've liked to take the week off like we did last expansion, but I wasn't able to. Plus with Invis being back in school, it wouldn't have worked out anyway since we're leveling together. I'll be leveling my paladin first, I think he's doing his DK this time round. I figure we'll be doing a lot of "rush home from work and play till the wee hours", which makes me wonder if we'll even hit 90 before the weekend.

My only real concern is having to level a second character just to fuel my paladin's need for ore since she's got blacksmithing and jewelcrafting as her profs. And unfortunately, all my miners are characters I would not have chosen to level right away.

So what are your plans?

Seeing the recent RL disaster for me I'm having a few weeks off everything. Planning to zerg my Pala to 90, then zerg a character with mining and epic flight to fuel my Engi/JC.
Most likely will be spamming istances most of the time (not fussed by server first and not really willing to compete with the whole server for quest mobs), at very least until 86. Then we'll see.

launch night - make my 2 monks
getting to panda land on hunter and dk, and then either going to dungeons on my dk, leveling my cowadin, or just going to bed and saying screw it

realm firsts dont mean that much to me

Brekkie:Tanks are like shitty DPS. And healers are like REALLY distracted DPS
Amirya:Why yes, your penis is longer than his because you hit 30k dps in the first 10 seconds. But guess what? That raid boss has a dick bigger than your ego.
Flex:I don't make mistakes. I execute carefully planned strategic group wipes.
Levie:(in /g) It's weird, I have a collar and I dont know where I got it from, Worgen are kinky!
Levie:Drunk Lev goes and does what he pleases just to annoy sober Lev.

On the "spam instances" you will really be missing out on a lot of openings if you don't do the questing - rep matters (can't be earned in the instances anymore) and unlocking of areas matters as well.

I'm picking it up at midnight CET monday/tuesday, heading home to install it, then I'll play a bit on tuesday (though I have apointments to keep, both in the morning and the afternoon) - wednesday is possibly maintenance day, but other than maint, I'll be on wednesday.
No chance of realm first for me, too many outside appointments.

As said elsewhere, I'm gonna see if I can get a realm first. I have Monday-Wednesday off work, and will be at the computer playing right at 11pm Monday (GMT) when it launches. This is only the 2nd expansion I've played right from launch like this, and the first time overnight. It'll probably be the last time I try it, too.

Edit: Oh yeah, and it's my Shaman main I'm levelling first. Might level my Paladin after, or start on a Monk.

Rushing to grab the mining pick and praying to find it there. Then probably a good couple of hours of questing on my tankadin before going to bed, the real nerding will start at the end of the first day as I've booked off from Wednesday to Friday.

Taking the freaking whole week off!

In Turkey !

First vacation of the year, so there is NO way I would have cancelled that.

When I'm back - the Pally is once again the main target, altough Holy or Prot will depend on the (new) RL's needs, or what some friendly guild would need.

Next up? No idea. I'd like to make a "main character's daughter" as a BE Monk, but there's no rush.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

I'm going to level a troll monk. I might log in at midnight and head to Pandaria on one of my 85's to do a bit of sightseeing, but probably not. It's late, and the servers will be overloaded. I got tuesday free anyway, so I'll be rolling a monk in the Echo Isles and avoid the rush.

I've got all week off :D
My plan is to have an early night on Monday then get up at 4am server time and level my Pally all Tuesday with a mage friend, then level the scummy dk farmer a little on Wednesday, until my friend is back from work. Hopefully hit 90 on the pally late Wed.
After that finish getting the farmer to 90, I probably should level my Mage scribe next, but the SPriest is just more fun.

I have Friday off, so during the evenings I'll try to get through the initial slog on my hunter, and then pound away on Friday, hoping to get close to 90 at that point.

I'm strongly considering that the Spriest will be next.

I'll also be moving my herber and skinner over, to start the gathering, and if the gathering is real good, that might slow down my hunter.. (who is my miner).

My skinner will get parked in the VotFW where that killing zone is, and will spend the next month there. Just selling the skins.

I worked my ass off in the past month to get ahead and can afford to take off work from 25th till Oct. 1st. I planned this since MoP was announced since new expansions are those rare moments, when I just sit at the computer into the late hours of the night and get soaked by the game.

I never rush, but I do progress relatively fast. Might not be the case this time since I'll be leveling my paladin first in protection spec with retribution gear, only this time our damage is so horrible, I probably won't be going through content with same speed as in WotLK and Cata.

As for how - questing, dungeons, exploring. Will be doing every single quest in every zone before moving on, dungeons when I'm called to tank. As an achievement whore, I won't rush to 90, I'll be looking to have as much done in every zone as possible. All the while leveling professions.

Alts will come at a later date. Mage first, followed by hunter and then warlock. Fifth one will probably be a monk, to complete the "have 5 classes at max level" achievement. I will, however, gear and play only my paladin.

I am working the week of launch, so probably try and stay online on tuesday and hit a few instances and then bed :(

I have the following two weeks off for leveling properly and gearing up.

I did this with previous expansions and it means i have a hardtime leveling due to raw number of people around but its not very holiday efficient taking half a week off.

I had planned vacation but a co-worker is going off to lead auditor certification and I was only able to get off on Thursday/Friday/Monday. So I will more then likely miss the midnight launch, rush home Tuesday and play from 5:30 - 11:30. Get to bed and get up at 6:20 am to work. Since I am off Thursday I will play from 5:30 till around 1:00 because I do not want to be so tired I will be sluggish on Thursday.

To those of you rushing for server firsts, good luck to you all.

I just moved flat and won't have proper internet until the 5th of October. So... maybe trying to level a monk on mobile internet?

My plan is to sleep all monday, level for 9 hours, go to town and take my drivers license test, then back home to level.
Then an alt sometime later the weekend, but since raids doesnt open up right away anyway its no rush.
Hopefully time enough to level both main and alt and gear up in BiS gear for raiding, 2nd week is just normalmodes anyway so even that isnt that demanding ^^

Taking off Tuesday with the wife so we can level. I guess I will shoot for server first if we're doing well after a few hours, but I doubt it will happen. If I'm not a clear frontrunner my goal will be to hit 90 by Friday evening, hopefully start working on Challenge Modes by Sunday.

Mist of Pandaria is ruining my Secret World :evil: Running the newest Investigation Missions now, and I keep catching myself looking forward to rolling a Monk.

And I just know that by tuesday afternoon I'll be looking forward to the next issue of TSW instead of enjoying the Monk. Sigh.

Hmm. Occurs to me I should fill my quest log with completed dailies again.

Think I got nearly a quarter of a level when Cat launched.

Somehow getting 4 characters to 90 and 2 of them in BiS heroic gear (prot paladin, blood DK) before the first raid opens up. So much to do, so little time.

I think that I'll get sufficiently distracted and occupied by various RL tasks that, by the time I get to 90, all the good raid spots in our guild will be taken. I'll PuG around for a while, spend a couple of months wiping pointlessly with the B-team on normal, get completely demotivated and largely stop playing until the next expansion.

Worked just fine last time. :(

I'll... be at work when it launches. Might have my code by Wednesday (depending when my mom picks up my copy.) Will enter it as soon as I get it and am in my room to do so. Then I'll make the decision between starting a monk or leveling my priest.
