Liala the Second is going strong in her leveling, but she’s fetched up against an ethical conundrum. I thought I’ d put it to you, the viewer, to decide her fate:
She’s leveling in a brand-new server without any alts, heirlooms, or gold to reproduce the experience that all brand-new players go through, and to adjust my leveling guide accordingly. However, it turns out that I do in fact know several players over there. One would be, very kindly, willing to port Liala the Second into Dalaran.
So here’s the conundrum: Is taking a high-level port contrary to the spirit of the enterprise?
On the one hand, it seems unlikely that a brand-new player would know anyone to port them to Dal, be able to purchase a port (a 10G tip is my going rate in Farstriders), or even know that such a thing was possible. I remember landing in Dal for the first time as a newly-dinged 75, for example, and being awestruck.
On the other hand, many new players land in guild and have the service offered to them, or can request it from fellow guildies for a purely nominal tip, if any.
On the other hand again, the whole point is to level from the perspective of a newbie; would it hurt the purpose of this noble enterprise to merely hearth-port-swish into Undercity, say, from halfway across Azeroth? But then again, letting people know how to get to Dalaran and set your hearthstone there could simply be part of any reasonably thorough guide. Gah!! /headexplodey
You see my problem.
So enlighten me, readers, and pick the path the Second should walk!
