Ironstevo had moved from level 1 - 60 rather quickly by killing rare spawns for extra experience. Since hitting Outland though, he has only killed a couple of rares. I had not been actively seeking them out as much while moving from 60 - 70, but now I may start looking a bit more for achievement purposes.
I have no immediate plans on heading to Northrend to continue Ironstevo's journey. He still has most of Blade's Edge, and all of Shadowmoon Valley and Netherstorm quests to finish before he even thinks about venturing there. I was even thinking about checking out the dailies on the Isle of Quel'Danas and the Skyguard dailies as well before heading there. Ultimately, the plan is to - TAKE IT SLOW. I'm not in any rush. This isn't a competition. I just want to get Ironstevo to the end without taking any unnecessary risks.
For reaching level 70 Ironstevo also got a little bit of a reward. I let him purchase an Armored Blue Wind Rider, which he purchased with monies received from greens that dropped from rares that he sold on the ah while leveling up.
Thats it for now!! ^-^
