Welp, I am going to be on tonight just to get all my characters logged in and accumulating rested experience. I will get a chance to play a bit on Tuesday and Wednesday night before I leave for a wedding for 5 days. By the time I get back, I will have almost a full bar of rested XP on most of my characters. My main will have 5 days of rested XP.

I was bummed that I was going to this wedding, but to miss a lot of buffoonery, I think it will be worth it.

Loading my toon up with mats.
Finishing 25 daily quests, but not turning them in. (Figure the XP boost off of them would be a little help)
Positioning myself in the Keep in Stormwind. (heard that we will receive a quest asking us to meet the King, which starts off the pandaria quests).

Prepping coffee machine for 2:45am

Nice thread for a Monday morning. I decided to focus exclusively on my DK this xpac, and maybe level my druid later if time allows. This is what I did already:

- Maxed out cooking to 525
- Got fishing to 465 (plan to fish a little tonight)
- Sold all cata herbs/ench materials
- Cleaned out bank and bags
- Capped JP

This is what I plan to do tonight:
- Clear out rest of AH sales - if not sold, vendor or store for later
- Fish a little to get to 500 (my goal before xpac)

Tuesday morning, I'll be up at 2:45 with a Monster drink, having logged off in Stormwind. Nathrezim seems like a low pop server, so I'm not sure...I wonder how crowded and laggy Stormwind and the first Pandaria zone will be? I plan to start off running dungeons and doing the initial dungeon quests ASAP to avoid the rush and get a jump on XP. Will the dailies give much xp, or will it just be minor, you think...?

pretty sure you cant que for jade until 86 so go a questing first.

as for me , i will continue to level my horde toons first couple of days let the mad rush get out of the wandering isle, then it is on to my monk for the horde guild.

Sounds awesome! I need a mini fridge in the office. Hmmm... since my wife works from that office during the day... you think I can get one for her for Christmas?

That is what my wife did for me. She bought a Black and Decker mini fridge at Walmart on the 24th , put it in the computer room and stocked it with drinks and Little Debbie snacks for me.

She must love me!!!

That sounds like one heck of an idea to me. I am sure I can persuade my wife into something similar when we get to Hawaii. I am still trying to figure out what to do in the AM. Not sure if I want to start on my Horde toons or the Alliance side. As of now I am leaning more towards the Alliance side on the Pandaren. I am ready to experience something new as far as class goes and races go.

I leveled up tailoring and enchanting so I could work on professions via dungeons.

So I need to find trainers, then que.

I don't want to do any quests if I can avoid it. My first 90 is my RBG toon (and on a PvP realm). Cross realms has created massive deadly choke-points which will slow down questing significantly. I just want to get her to 90 as quickly as I can between work and life so I can get her RBG ready.

I'll do all of the new content quests on my PvE toon later on. I dislike doing the same quests twice, so I want to save them for the toon I quested BC, Wotlk and Cata on.

I already listed a ton of bags on the AH to hit the early crowd of Monks and Pandas.

Not to be a Debbie Downer but I have no faith the game will be playable tomorrow. I would hope the daily restarts and long down times have fixed everything but it's not like history is on Bliz's side that it will be smooth. On my part I've got all my BoA's positioned and I have the gear ready to roll my new panda monk. I'm looking forward to the new cooking recipes and I want to try to get the Master Of The Ways title.

I think I have everything ready to go. The only thing I suppose I will need to do is find a remote area to grant my monk its 79 levels with out experienceing too much lag, Then its onto BRC / Vashyr(I figure all the instant 80 monks will be in Hyjal).

Bags.. Check
Glyphs.. Check
lvl78-80 leather cata greens.. Check
Food and Flasks.. Check
Mats to powerlevel LW/Alch.. Check

I'm dual boxxing cata crap with my 82 blood/frost DK, and when the monk hits 85 its dual boxxing with my skinning/mining hunter. I have some ilvl377pvp gear for the monk, but its far from a full set, Im not really that worried since I doubt ill be doing many instances at least not dual boxxing them.

Not taking time off work, so I'll proably just wake up early play a bit then got to work. Have a wedding to go to out of town this weekend, so hopefully I can get 90 or atleast some farming in early this week.

Not sure what makes you think this, I was up at midnight PST for Cataclysm, played until it was time for work, then came back and logged on with no issues in the afternoon.

My money is on things being seamless.

OK, say that everything's working nicely... there will be a lot of griefing on starting zones (both wondering isle and jade forest)

I dunno man, I think most people in those zones will be doing the same thing we're trying to do...level. Sure there will be competition for mobs, quest items, etc., but I don't think that many people will be going out of their way to make others' gaming experience unpleasant.

I could be wrong, but I believe people are inherently good.

You haven't met Goon Squad on our realm...

They will active in placing huge mammoths on quest givers and/or hogging quest items/givers/objectives

They will also be spamming trade/general chat

All this for their devious plan to be realm first something (they were realm first level 25 guild)

I play on Kil'Jaeden currently where there are about 6 or 7 guilds on each side that live and breathe world PvP, so I see the griefing occassionally. But most of the time those guys police themselves...The gankers gank until someone goes back to SW/Org and puts it in trade that there's some foul shit going on in X zone. Then the calvary is deployed and they take care of it.

Prior to Kil'Jaeden I was on K'T, I'm more than familiar with Good Squad and their antics. The game is so big now that I just go elsewhere and not let those morons ruin my gaming experience.

If people are griefing Jade Forest tonight, I'll sit in Org and wait for my dungeon pop. If they are griefing in the dungeons, I'll just queue BGs. If they're griefing there, then I'll just have to suck it up and force feed some asshole a Fireball or go to sleep.

Note that while CRZ is turned off for Pandaria, they're supposed to be able to instance individual servers as necessary. That means instead of the entirety of a realm pop being in Jade Forest, it'll split into however many instances make the game "comfortable", or whatever their metric is.

I imagine instances will be large pops, but not like 2000 people trying to click the same whatever node at once.

There was a hilarious video in beta of a quest that took about a minute to complete (I'm assuming this got revised at some point), and people formed an actual line. It was like 50 people long, of wow toons queued up. Must've been an EU server.

I've got a lvl 80 RAF toon ready to grant levels, and a level 32, going to try to get the level 32 past level 40 tonight, then sleep. I have the next 5 days off work - planning to level my monk to 20, then RAF grant him to 80, then level 80-90 as a tank. If I have enough time left I'll also level my main - hopefully I'll fall in love with the monk and make it my main but I'm not holding my breath.

Yeah, they seem to completely remove this quest on later builds, or changed it so any number of players could be doing it...

If they didn't I'll just skip it.. there are more quest hubs out there in Jade Forest..

Probably the same as most here. Caffeine, snacks and pondering the poopsock. Bought a new cushion and seat cover for the desk chair.

Got a mini fridge next to my desk (kegerator actually) and put a case of diet mt dew in before coming to work, along with 10 bing energy drinks, various fruits and some tamales to slap in the microwave. Got 2 1lb bags of beef jerky, a can of pringles and some bags of microwave popcorn along with a roll of paper towels to clean my hands off. Vacation starts tomorrow through Sunday, and I plan to have my rogue and pally to 90 by the weekend to start dungeons and BG's.

Still deciding which to make PVP main and which to make PVE main. Both are currently maxed JP and honor and have 20 each of their main stat's food and flask, 40 of the new 100k HP food, 20 healing pots and 20 dense bandages with extra embersilk cloth in my bank toon GB if needed.
