Shaman challenge
Level 69 at 1d 6h - got through Outland, now in Northrend - 60-68 seemed very slow
A funny thing happened on the way to the Alliance: Restored a previously deleted 110 horde mage, took her to Alliance and weirdness happened

Shaman challenge
15 to 38 in one night.
Lots of dungeons and dungeon quests.
Could get 2-3 levels in a run
Rested XP was a waste because you blow right through it.
Problem - Maraudon puts you in the dungeon, but no quests for two more levels. So, either quest or repeat dungeons.
Problem with that is now you’re moving further and further away from Stormwind (Stranglethorn or Plaguelands)
Had to run to Wetlands between dungeon runs. Waste of time. Not sure what else to do.
Toy is 10k gold, and only gives faction flight points, not neutral.
BTW: I still love Maraudon
