Well last night I did some more exploring of this great big world! I fully explored Durotar and Mulgore! A few things nibbled me as I ran about, but I was able to heal myself just fine. I was also able to help Zargh get some meat to Grimtak in Orgrimmar. All in all, a very nice evening for a long run.
This morning I went for a jog down the path in Durotar, picking herbs and mining some ore. Along the way I hit level 6! I noticed that the Scorpids are starting to get used to my presence and don't bother me as much now that I have a bit more experience under my belt. Soon they won't even notice me at all, I'm sure.
I think tonight I'll do some exploring over where the Alliance live if I can make it there alive... Dun Morogh and Elwynn Forest perhaps. I'll have to plan my routes carefully, that's for sure. A run buff would be really nice. Hmmm.... if the route proves to be difficult, I might wait until I have my travel form, or at least my cat prowl form at 11. Wish me luck!
