Isayni Dings 90

Leveling to 90 on the DK was really much easier than I remember on the Hunter, Monk, Priest or Mage. I leveled her while in Blood spec the entire time. I know this probably wasn't the best way to quickly kill all the things that needed to die, but I liked how it kept me alive :)

Isayni didn't complete a single zone anywhere. I sometimes miss having to work my way through entire zones and I know there is quite a bit out there that I still haven't seen. One of these days I should start a toon and do every quest in every zone she is sent to, no matter what level she is when she gets there.

Anyway.. Here is Isayni as she looked in Dread Wastes when she dinged:

These are all quest rewards from the zone except for the mace, Torch of the Damned from Black Temple.

Now that she's 90, instead of the usual dungeons and stuff, I have to take her to Barrens.

The Barrens world event will end 8/27/13. The entire set she could get there would be great, but I don't have the time needed to get it. I'm not worried, it's the same look as items she can still get when Barrens ends - EXCEPT for the boots.

The set from the Barrens is called Insubordination. It's the same as the Saronite War Battleplate (recolor) set except that Blizzard never gave us matching boots for the Saronite set. So when Barrens goes away, so will my only chance at the boots for one of the few sets I really like on my DK.

Another reason she needs to go to barrens is to farm 500 Lumber for Griftah's Authentic Troll Shoes. If you are either a Warrior or Death Knight Draenei, you need these shoes. I may have mentioned it before, I can't remember, but I'm gonna say it again - as a Draenei plate-wearer, you have only 5 boots that are "invisible". Two of those boots are Paladin only. One comes from Ruby Sanctum which is a place I've just kind of written off as "never gonna happen". The other two are from ICC, but in the once-a-month way our guild goes there, I'm not the only plate wearer. Farming 500 Lumber sounds easier/quicker than hoping for an ICC run, hoping that one of the boots drop, and then hoping that I win them. RNG = really never getting.

To top off the joy of Barrens farming, I need to do PvP stuffz. I dislike PvP. GREATLY. But as the Barrens World Event ends, so does PvP Season 13. This means that I won't be able to get the ONE HELM that I want on my DK, The Malevolent Gladiator's Dreadplate Helm. This spiffy helm will cost 2250 Honor Points of which I currently have zero. Can I get 2250 HP before 8/27 when I really don't play every day?
