Cataclysm is coming, as if you could not tell from all the stories and blog entries here and everywhere else in the warcraft community. Every time a new expansion comes out, players who have been around for a couple years or more try to get some goals accomplished before the new expansion hits and takes up all their attention. For my four friends who caused me to join the game, they each are in very different places and have their own important lists. The most active of those players is now at 92 mounts and is hunting the 100 mount achievement, as well as 35-40k gold to pay for his 2-3 characters jumping right into Cataclysm material. Another is taking a break from the game (very common at this point in the expansion), another has long since quit and is playing Starcraft II, and the last is trying to find his direction in the game before Cata. I tried to take stock of what I wanted to do before Cataclysm, and had trouble deciding! However, here's my bucket list for Wrath so far.
1. Finish It's Been A Long Strange Journey on Navarionae
2. Defeat Algalon the Observer in Ulduar-10 (Ekat)
3. Defeat Yogg-Saron in Ulduar-10 (Ekat)
4. Defeat The Lich King in Icecrown Citadel (Ekat)
5. Reach level 80 on Arielae the druid
6. Reach level 75 on Biancae the paladin
7. Reach level 70 on Clarissae the shaman
8. Buy epic flight on the final three leveling characters and have about 10k gold left
9. Do the Linken Nintendo homage quest chain in case it goes away
I'm sure there will be more little things on the list, but those are the major things I'd like to see done. I doubt it will happen, but it is good to have a list publicly.
So how about you? Do you have a bucket list to complete before the world changes forever in Cataclysm?
