So I've finished preparing the Joar empire for Legion, which is to say, I didn't do a whole lot. The first four or five toons that I'm likely to level have had their bags cleaned out and they are more or less ready to go. Folks are generally either in Orgrimmar, Stormwind, or their garrison, and most folks have done the Broken Isles quest line (although I wonder if that will actually even be needed after a while, I guess we'll find out for sure tomorrow).
I'm generally taking a much more casual approach to this one than I have in the past. No lengthy to-do lists. No significant advance preparation. Even some basics like buying food I didn't bother with, because it has finally occurred to me that there's almost always better food and bandages available almost immediately in the new questing areas. But hey. I'm ready. Ready enough.
In the meantime, I managed to get toon #27 to 100 purely on the back of doing invasions. This was neither the fire mage or the shaman that I had been working on, but instead was a third druid. Sunfiring the shit out of everything was just excellent for keeping that XP rolling in. I managed to get him to 100 in slightly less than half the time that it would have taken to do purely by questing. And with the added advantage that he was immediately iLvL 700 based on all the chests he had to open.
The one thing that I did do in preparation for launch was to get all the current /played times for my toons recorded so that I can appropriately measure the time to level to 110 for all them. Strangely, it's not that I even care about the speed at this point. That gets adjusted so much these days over the course of an expansion that I'm not sure it matters anymore. But because I've been doing it since Cataclysm, I hate to stop now.
At some point tomorrow afternoon'ish, Joar will be embarking on the path to 110. I'm actually not in any giant hurry at this point. Just going to enjoy it for what it is.
The monk is done. Leveled him entirely as Brewmaster and never once looked back. Found the spec to be pretty smooth and easy for leveling....
One of my WoW goals that has always been floating randomly out in the ether somewhere was to level a toon of each class to 80. I've see...
