Wrath of the Lich King has now officially been out for an entire month. For many players the mad rush to hit max level is done. For others there are still a few levels to go. In either case, there's one big question which plagues most minds when ascending the final plateau – What happens next?
What to do when reaching level eighty is at the core of our topic today. I'll start off with some examples of some interesting things one may have missed in their journey. Special items, factions, and dungeons – let's explore our options for max level in 3.0.

These posts are written for the player entering Northrend with all secondary professions already maxed (at 375 skill). For information on leveling tradeskills prior to 375, check out the
