Level 110 #12 Complete. Warrior Completes the Class Set

So I managed to get the warrior to 110 on Sunday, marking the last class for me to get to 110 this expansion.  I'm still working on finishing up the class order hall campaign on the warrior, but it seems that a substantial portion of that is doable while leveling, so it doesn't seem that I have very far to go on it at this point.

It actually made me wonder if there had been some subtle nerfs to the leveling requirements, because the warrior was the fastest toon to 110 for me so far, by over an hour.  And I did not have flying unlocked yet for any portion of the leveling process.  So the warrior ended up with a total leveling time of 13 hours and 48 minutes, with the next fastest being the monk at 15 hours and 2 minutes.

I did manage to also unlock flying this past Tuesday, so have been enjoying the new level of freedom that provides.  It certainly makes getting from world quest to world quest much easier.

So I'm continuing to grind out Legionfall rep, although if each week's new content continues to grant 1,500 rep, and if there are 8 weeks remaining, There shouldn't be too much more of that to do at this point.

Now it's just a matter of deciding if I want to start working on the alliance side of things, or just focus on gearing up and grinding for Legendaries on the various Horde toons.  So far, only two of my 110's don't currently have legendaries - the mage, and the newly 110 warrior.  First up for the alliance would be my warlock, who I intend to level as demonology for something different.  That'll be followed by the death knight (unholy) and hunter (survival), basically maintaining the early order on my Horde toons, but using different specs wherever possible.

Dear Sons of Hodir Shao Hao Legionfall Shitty Rep Grind Masters

So it's another rep grind.  At least I'm not wandering around killing Yaungol for no reason or polishing some giant's ugly ass helmet.  But in the guise of the largest content patch in Blizzard history, we seem to have gotten the same old same old in terms of rep grinds.

We did receive the first installment in the promised eleven week continuation of the class order hall campaign.  So far, I've just done the warlock and hunter versions, and both were pretty good.  The warlock one especially had a lot of really cool class flavor to it.

I've also done several zones worth of Legion invasions and have found those to be really fun as well, although it's a bit disappointing that you only get rep for the first one that you do.

Finally, while it is still just a rep grind, the world quests that have been introduced in Broken Shore have been pretty good, with a nice amount of variety in quest types.

So it's annoying, but like every other expansion, I'll get over it in the interest of getting what I want.  At least in this case it's flying and a mount and not just some stupid enchant.

My warrior is working his way through Highmountain and is sitting at level 105.  There is a lot of class order hall campaign to do on the warrior before 110 (completely unlike the mage), so that is adding some nice variety to the leveling process.

I've also been taking advantage of the new higher gear rewards from world quests to gear up some of my other alts.  Doing so, I've managed to get legendaries now on 10 of my 11 max level toons.  Only the mage still needs one.

So that's it for now.



Ding! Level 110 #22 Is Done

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....
