At some point you will (hopefully) level your Pally to 70. The immediate question many folks will have is What Now? / Is this the end?
Yes and no. It's the end of grinding for XP and leveling up. However it's the beginning of "end-game" content. Here's some of the stuff that opens up to you.
- Multiple Dungeons including Kara
- PVP Arena
- Flying Mount / Epic Flying Mount
- Additional Faction rep
- Lvl 70 Epic Armor
- Daily Quests
Eventually you're probably going to find yourself doing mostly PVP or PVE. As a ret pally you may find that you don't get picked for instances/raids very often. This is partially because there's a common misconception that ret pallys aren't very good. Can't heal well enough, can't DPS well enough. That's simply not true. What is true though, is that a Ret Pally is very gear dependent, and decked out in blue's and greens your gear sucks. So priority #1 will be getting better gear.
I'll be posting the best way to get gear tomorrow. In the mean time, make sure you've headed to SW to get your level 70 talents. And pick up your flying mount. If you don't have the money for a flying mount yet, continue doing some quests... While quests no longer give you XP they offer about double the money they did at 69 plus armor and weapons you can sell.
