The obvious thing here is to keep SoR on at all times until a better seal comes along. Luckily seals don't have to be re-cast every 30 like in the old days.
Blood Elves also start with Arcane Torrent, which is their racial. This racial is one of the better ones. 6% mana every 3 minutes seems a lot. Since I haven't played a BE past level 6 I don't know how this will work at later levels but for a healer / tank it can only be win.
Level 2 New skills: Devotion Aura rank 1. Another obvious thing here: keep this aura on at all times until a better one becomes available.
The hammer especially will come in handy in a multitude of situations. Parry is also very useful and is one of your first utility skills for tanking.
Level 10 New skills: Lay on Hands - another "oh shit" button. This one can also be used on a friendly target which can be very helpful when healing and the tank is about to die. Hand of Protection - well, here's a skill that will come in handy when tanking. It should protect a squishy if they gain aggro and are in grave danger.
Talents: My first talent went into Divine Strength 1/5. Since I only have 28 Str, I didn't even see the change. Oh well, maybe next level.
I learned mining and skinning as soon as I found the first trainers.
There's a shitload of copper around Eversong Woods. By level 10 I collected about 5 stacks. I also skinned all the mobs I could. One extra thing that I did for gold is to kill all the Dragonhawks that crossed my path. They drop Small Eggs which are very valuable on the AH.
From the first bag vendor I picked up 4x 6-slot bags for 4 silver each. These should last me until I can afford bigger bags.
At level 10 I have a little under 3 gold but that's deceptive because I still have lots of unsold stuff.
To do: travel to Thunderbluff and Orgrimmar to learn 1H axes and 1H maces. Dammit how I hate this stupid weapon training. I will probably waste 2 hours getting to those places and die twenty times. It's a good thing they're removing weapon training in Cataclysm. So does anyone know how the hell one gets to Tb or Org from Eversong?
Edit: never mind, I think I've figured it out. Apparently in Silvermoon City there's an Orb of Translocation which ports me to Undercity. From there it's easy: zeppelin to Orgrimmar and then another zeppelin to Mulgore.
A special hey! to my reader Bloodshrike who made a level 1 character just to say hi. Very nice of you man!
Former WoW player, current Diablo 3 fanatic, I love the finer things in life such as PC games, beer and computers. While playing a good game is a spiritual experience, blogging about it is almost equally rewarding.
