Extra Artifact Traits Unlocked All Around

Well, that's all done.  I managed to finish not only unlocking the Broken Shore, but also the extra artifact traits on all twelve max level toons.  Why, you may ask?  I have no idea.

I'm also diligently working through each week's new installment of "content" on 3 different toons - my warlock, hunter and death knight.  Sadly, I pretty accurately called this week's installment.




OK, so it was only 3 instead of 10.  If next's weeks is the 1,000 Legionfall War Supply thing I'll be anxiously awaiting a check from Blizzard.

I'm continuing to work through emissary quests and all that on both the warlock and the hunter.  And yes, I have no idea why.  I guess I'd like to unlock the fancy Concordance thing on at least a couple of toons, just to see how it works.

Lastly, I've gone back to starting to level my alliance toons.  My warlock is sitting at level 107 and is finishing up Val'Sharah, before heading to Highmountain.  Using the Legion invasions as provided quite a boost to the leveling path.

I started the warlock as demonology, but found I really wasn't enjoying it very much, so have switched him over to  destruction.

Next up after the warlock will be the death knight, who I intend to level as unholy.

Cheers,

Joar

Unlocking the Broken Shore for Everyone

So I finished unlocking the Broken Shore on all 12 max level Horde toons and have now also started the process of getting the new Legionfall Champion and opening up the elite Broken Shore world quests (which often have 880 gear and other upgraded rewards).

It's been interesting to see all the stories for each class surrounding the Legionfall Champions.  At this point, I only have the warrior left to do.

Consistent with the rest of my Legion class quest experience, this time around Elemental Shaman was once again my least favorite.  If that wasn't already one of my wealthiest toons because of the good old days of inscription, I'd park his butt in front of the auction house for the rest of this expansion (or maybe just re-roll him as enhancement).

I'm also planning to unlock the additional artifact traits on everyone if possible, although at this point, I've only completed that on 5/12 toons, so that may take a little while.

Also, one quick tip that I got this week from an in-game friend.  Six of the twelve classes have an ability in their class order hall that can be researched that allows you to complete one World Quest per day for free with no effort.  Those classes are Warlock, Death Knight, Paladin, Demon Hunter, Mage and Warrior.  This is not only an easy way to get gear on these toons, but is also a way to keep a regular flow of resources coming in to enable you to keep running order hall missions for other rewards.

My plan is to blow through class hall missions to finish filling out artifact traits on those toons where that isn't already done.  And then work through the quests to unlock new artifact traits.

Cheers,

Joar

The Legionfall Grind Continues

So now that the Horde class leveling is done, I've chosen to focus on doing world quests, Legionfall content and world bosses on just a small number of toons - primarily my warlock, hunter and death knight.  So far, that's been working out fairly well.

I'm not in a big rush at this point to get to Exalted with Legionfall, because I think I'm pretty close to the point where the regular weekly new "content" will get me there before the Tomb opens as long as it continues to be 1,500 rep per week.  (I'm sitting at around 14,000/21,000)

Don't get me wrong, the alliance toons are set up, ordered and ready to go.  I'll be starting off with a demonology warlock, the unholy death knight, and survival hunter.  I'm focusing mostly on specs that I didn't do at all horde side.

Because my champions and professions are getting higher levels across the entire contingent, I'm also making gold at a faster rate than I did at the end of Warlords, which is still completely unbelievable to me.  The only profession that I'm actively using at this point to make gold is Tailoring, with a tiny bit of Jewelcrafting on the side.  Other than that, I'm just running order hall missions, doing world quests and selling mats.

Cheers,

Joar


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....
