For quite some time now, I've have my level mid-20's paladin be my bank alt. For some reason, I just never got around to leveling her, and I probably never will. But, as you can read from yesterday's post (a lot of good suggestions, btw), I've been thinking about mounts.
And why shouldn't I be? In the next minor patch, the first riding level will be reduced to 30 from 40. That means that my paladin is pretty close to getting her free mount. I took her out to level her just a bit. She's currently 28; just 2 more levels to go. The funny thing is: the only thing she had in her bags when I had this great idea was a hearthstone and a mining pick. (Oh, and some lvl 70 greens that I hadn't put up on the AH yet.)
So, no water. No potions. Kind of au naturel, if you will. Well, she still had all her armor and Verigan's Fist that I had obtained shortly after hit 20 a long, long time ago. So, when I am low on mana or whatnot... I just take on one mob while I got my mana back. If I am low on mana and health, I simply get to a safe spot and go do something else (fix food, check mail, etc.) while everything goes back. It's kind of a relaxing way to level. I couldn't imagine doing it all the way to 70, but it's a change of pace.
And once she hits 30, she'll head back to Stormwind to manage the financial affairs of Leiandra and my other toons. But when the patch goes out... she'll have a horse. :) (At least, I hope she will.)
