I'm w/ you Dakaf, on praying they don't raise the level of the pets. I have leveled 2 toons from pet battles so far and will be able to level all my alts through pet battles alone. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed from being so lost in pand land and all the boucing around w/ the reps. As a rule, I hate grinding rep, but it is a necessity and required for patterns and gold producing items I need ( like Tillers rep ). Maybe its just me, but w/ this last expansion, rep became more important than in previous expansions and I have the feeling it will be even more so in the next one that comes out. In the past, if you could afford it , you could just go to AH and buy what you really wanted and needed or items that gave rep. Now its all about the rep and no way of getting around it unless you stick w/ a gathering profession. I will finish up tillers rep today then move on to celestial rep as I need the satchel pattern really bad. I have gotten to the point now, where I skip as much of unneeded rep as possible because I hate the damn grind. As a solo player, for much of the time I don't do dungeons and raids and as such rep has now become an evil necessity. At least, I'm starting to get a little oriented and hope that helps since my shadow priest is fixing to hit 90. I'm not even hitting the required chains to open portals to other areas until I can buy my flying in panda land because hoofing it is such a pain in my ass and just overall less frustrating for my play and gaming pleasure.
