As is normal lately, this update will be broken into two pieces, World of Warcraft updates and FFXIV.
World of Warcraft
As the title mentioned, I hit level 70 on the Shaman yesterday. This is the first character that I leveled almost entirely through dungeon runs. At 8 hours and 17 minutes played, it was about an hour and 20 minutes faster than my previous record holder and significantly faster than the average has been so far. So that appears to definitely be the preferred approach. And that's with dps queues.
The demon hunter is up next, and it goes without saying that I'll be following the same approach.
I'm continuing to work on both the ninja and warrior in FFXIV. The rogue is now at level 78, and the warrior is at level 77, so I've made solid progress on both. I'll be able to use the new Endwalker beast tribe quests on them starting soon, so that will speed things along a bit more. After these two are done, the next up will be a combination of Sage and Black Mage, and those two will be followed by Paladin. I may try including the leveling roulettes on the Paladin and doing that one straight instead of mixing it with a dps class. Everyone tells me the leveling dungeons are okay with a tank, but I've always been so bad at it in WoW that I'm hesitant to try it.
That's it for now!
