Because there are 4 pets in the RAF as well as a nice mount, I have been doing RAF anyway. I've done one with Kamalia - she and I RAF'd each other and she got her mount, and I got my Zipao tiger - and the next one I did was with Lushnek. So since I paid for his RAF, I thought hey, might as well use this bonus and see if I can level an alt whilst WoW is quiet.
But what to choose? I should have picked a hunter, but the only heirlooms I had already were leather and cloth, so I decided to make a warlock. Lushnek made a rogue and off we went. But in retrospect, I should have made a hunter because I like collecting rare pics, so collecting rare pets would have been a natural progression of that.
My usual tolerance for alts is about 10 levels which usually takes me about 5 hours anyway. I still remember the alliance toon I levelled in Apotheosis which took me in total about 19 hours - and I only got to level 24. I am really the slowest leveller in the world!
So, I decided to level an undead, because I really did like the Silverpine Forest quests. I liked seeing what was going on with Gilneas and with the Forsaken, and the little interaction between Sylvanas and Garrosh. And dual questing with all those things makes it go so much faster - it's great having someone to tell me where to go.

|Wow that was quick!|

|Now I have never seen this tunnel before from Arathi Highlands to the Hinterlands. Lucky you can ride through it.|
And I'm liking levelling a little bit as it really is fast. It REALLY is 4 quests and ding! I played my toon for 6 hours and I'm level 40 already, and that's for a SLOW leveller like me!
So who knows what's going to happen in the next 6 hours? :D I'll keep you posted. Oh my goodness, I might have my first max level alt in a few weeks!
