Ding...Level 80! (and my addiction to achievements)

Well, it's been such a busy weekend in real life that I thought that my goal to become level 80 before Cataclysm wouldn't happen...but, thanks to the 20% reduction of XP required to get to the level cap...I've done it! Woohoo!

and I'm really pleased I've got to the level cap...even if i do only have 24 hours to enjoy it before the levelling begins again. In order to celebrate reaching 80, the first thing I did...wasn't killing the 'Fel Reaver' like I promised, but was in fact doing the Heroic version of the Violet Hold. We wiped once, but got it the second time, and manged to earn the achievement Defenseless.

I've realised that my favourite part of WoW so far, is gaining achievements, I think it will be 'my thing,' and as I was scrolling through the achievements I came across the Northrend Dungeonmaster achievement and discovered I only had 4 dungeons left in order to gain the achievement, they were The Oculus, Utgarde Pinnacle, Halls of Lightning and Culling of Stratholme. Out of the 4, I would say that 'Culling of Stratholme' was the easiest with 'Halls of Lightning' being the hardest and I have nothing but hatred for 'The Oculus'. I think 'The Oculus' would be easier with a guild group who knew exactly what to do, but as a pug it was awful. We wiped 3 times, but got it eventually. We wiped once in Utgarde and in Hall of Lightning but we persevered and got the achievement!

and then once I had achieved that, I went a bit achievement happy and completed these during the week and weekend... after all, every achievement point counts :)
