Well if we are actually making the decision to start new in 11 days then we will need to choose a faction. I'd also suggest working out who is going to be playing and try work out a nice class distribution etc (play what you want but it would be great to have a solid 5 man team with different classes/loot types).
Was a good night last night. Managed to smash out pretty much all of Stonetalon Mountains; just the boss quests left. I'll go back there in a couple more levels. Also scored some Spidersilk Boots that someone put up on the AH for what could only be a mistake price of 30silver, instead of the usual 3gold. I ran through Shadowfang Keep for the first time too. I loved every moment of it, vanilla SFK is everything I want from this game. Incredibly hard pulls, challenging mana management and nail-biting mob mechanics. Nobody died and I did get a couple of upgrades. Good group composition has been key with all the dungeons I've done so far. Need a mage in every case; conjured rations and polymorph are a must. I had double mage and a shaman for the SFK, plenty of CC. Really looking forward to Scarlet Monastery now, its gonna be EPIC!
