WoW Ironman Challenge - The Final Countdown

"Always watch your back..."
I wanted to give a quick update on Ironstevo before I dive straight into talking about the lovely treasure chests he's been finding recently (I'm saving that for it's own post which I'm currently working on). Ironstevo has hit level 80 as of two nights ago and he's still alive!! I honestly can't believe that he's made it this far! ^-^

Ironstevo finds another Treasure Chest
Hold your breath, cross your fingers, pray to whatever deity you can, these last five levels are going to be treacherous. Northrend mobs now only give 10% xp, so Ironstevo is relying on quests and chests to move forward. I have no intention of taking him to any of the Cataclysm zones until I have exhausted my options in Northrend. At level 80 Ironstevo has a mere 7874 hit points, even his squishy voidwalker is only sitting at 11326. I imagine the mobs in the Cataclym starting zones would easily destroy him in 2-3 hits at this point.


I'm not going to rush, I'm planning these last levels out very VERY carefully. Ironstevo is questing in Grizzly Hills at the moment where quests are giving him between approx. 16,000 - 21,000 xp. When (and if) he makes it to 81 he'll probably be heading over to Zul'Drak. The goal is to keep quests as low level as possible while still gaining max experience from them. 


So stay tuned! News will either be very very good within the next couple of weeks for Ironstevo or very very bad. Either way, it should be interesting.

  2. Well done Ironstevo! I will have my fingers crossed for you and hope he finds many chests and no quick respawns along the way.

    This is so scary, take care Ironstevo!

    1. Omg, quick respawns could easily be the death of Ironstevo and my underwear! I hope to kittens that I don't run into any!

  3. I might've missed it along the way, but is the Argent Tournament an option for you?

    Either way, you can do it!

    1. It is! I've only been doing a few of them so far including the jousting and ones and the other two which don't actually require fighting. The rest of the level 80 dailies I haven't touched yet. ;)

      Thanks for the support! =D

  4. Grats on making it so far! I would stay away from cata too ;__; even geared I died a lot when I first stepped foot into those areas. You have so much patience! I can't even understand. hahaha.

  5. @Dreamy - Yeah, those Cata mobs hit like trucks. I'm going to try to avoid as much of it as possible. Heh I guess you could call it patience, that or insanity. You know, now that I think about it this kind of reminds me of grinding for the insane title. haha
    @Navi - Thanks for the support!! ^-^
