There has never been this must dust on my blog…
At least this little guy is having a blast.
Truthfully, I have not been playing much. At all. A few times a week, at best. It is my hope, that the hype for this expansion can be re-discovered along the way, as the patches unfold, so;
“Until the hype has been restored, can I ask for your help, insight, tips and knowledge on your gaming style?”
And any shortcuts you might have found in Battle for Azeroth?
I will try to gather them all in this post. Perhaps a list is what I need! (Even though I´ll probably end up living in Darkshore from tomorrow and onwards 😉 )
You are more than welcome to include things from 8.1 as well, if you are up to date on that 🙂
Having fun, efficiently
As much as I adore to wander off and explore, swim further than any Orca has ever done before, be Shadow on a raft while fishing, I also used to like to get things done in World of Warcraft.
Check, Ding, 10 points, raise Professions, you name it. Collect things, Pets, Mounts, Gold! “Done” with this and that. It´s nice to look back on Legion and feel as if I did it all (except raids and such)
But with so little time to do it, it´s important to stay time efficient.
So how to go about it?
“MAXIMUM RESULTS – MINIMUM EFFORT”
Like doing 1 Timewalk Dungeon for 500 Timewarped Badges and forget about the rest.
Doing just the Island Expeditions for the Azerite and nothing more?
Things like that. I used to be pretty okay at that.
But Battle for Azeroth has become an expansion that appears so unknown to me, perhaps especially because of the three Horde zones, I almost feel no connection to at all. Playing so little surely is not helping me either. (I am currently levelling an Undead, but she´s years away from being big enough to visit Zandalar.)
So if you have any helpful ideas, please share them here, and I shall be very grateful.
Thank you 🙂
I´ll try to divide it into sections. I hope others will benefit from our exchange on tips too.
The list below is my own draft – you can probably see how little I know, despite BfA being 4 months old by now. Perhaps it could even be divided into daily/weekly activities.
– such as Timewarped Badges, Pet Charms and the likes.
War ressources (Who else is short on those all the time?) = Do the Warfront Quests and sometimes Weekly Quest (20 World Quests done) for 1k War Ressources. Those generally last quite long for me (because I forget my Companion App…)
1 Timewalk Dungeon = 500 Timewarped Badges (skip the rest)
Check the Mission Table on mobile for Polished Pet Charm Missions
Do Island Expeditions for the Seafarer Dubloons.
Raising Reputation (for Flight first)
Wait until Darkmoon Faire, WoW Anniversary, Pilgrim´s Bounty, for the extra % Reputation buff
Purchase the Azeroth Contracts that grants 10 reputation with the selected faction pr. World Quest done (?)
Stick to Emmisaries – perhaps even saving two to do them at once, if they allign.
Obtaining the best gear possible (for a casual player)
Take note of the Warfront status, and participate in a win for a guaranteed item level 370 (?) Just do it once (?)
Target specific World Quests for the gear slots you are in need of. Stop at 325. (340 in 8.1?)
Do the Weekly World Boss
Settle. You don´t need the best gear anyway.
Maintaining your Heart of Azeroth necklace
Visit Magni at Friendly, Honored, Revered and Exalted for a +15 item level increase quest (Silithus)
Do…World Quests for Reputation with Champions of Azeroth? Island Expeditions for Azerite?
Participating in the Raids
Do it on Wednesday for the biggest chance of success?
Pick up the quest from Darkmoon Faire to collect 250 Grizzly Trophies “Test Your Strength? (Does it work in Raids?)
Visit Hazelnuttygames on Youtube for the best, most time efficient guide possible?
Optimizing World Quests
Get an AddOn that easily filters through, what you need. Never do one just for the pure grind of it.
Raise your reputation until Revered, then wait with the rest, until you get flight, to be as time efficient as possible.
Collecting of Pets and Mounts (And Gold)
Stick to those that are guaranteed. Stay clear of RNG ones – more so than ever, these is not for the time poor.
So essentially…Raise Reputation and farm Pet Charms? Is that all in BfA, or?
As for Gold, I do not know, really. Emmisaries?
Here…I am clueless. Professions have taken a backseat entirely in BfA.
Any tips? I have Enchanting and Tailoring. Cooking and Fishing needs love too. ‘
Maybe the best thing to do would be to skip these entirely – or is there still any benefit in having professions at all?
I´m not sure it´s worth the time and effort anymore. I kept Tailoring for RP purposes for First Aid, but everyone can use bandages, and I hardly RP anymore at all, since the Burning of Teldrassil.
Achievements (for fun)
Look into that, once you have flying. (Or play Classic, because those two things will probably happen around the same time..!)
Handy advice to easily get around in Battle for Azeroth? I guess I am quite blessed being a Druid, with access to our Emerald Dreamway.
I still have not figured out the easy way to get from Zandalar and back to Boralus – is there one?
Getting the Whistle helps a lot, of course.
Any categories I am missing?
Hm, Holidays in WoW, perhaps? I´ll include those when I get home tonight.
I just found another time efficient thing, when it comes to Warfronts; Don´t hop in to hunt rares at first, if you plan on doing the World Quests there. Do the World Quests and on the final day the Warfront rares are active, THEN do them. That way, you have already done some of them for the Quests and won´t do double work 🙂
Thank you so much in advance 🙂
On another positive note, a new blogger has found his way into my list.
A well written, dedicated and very pleasant blogger to come across, so be sure to pay him a visit. 🙂
An updated list of Blogs I follow can be found here.
Oh, and one last thing, my blog domain now is, as simple as can be:
Anyway, Happy Holidays everyone and thank you for all the blog posts in the last month 🙂
Despite not writing much on my own blog, my activity has not dropped on all the blogs I follow.
Here´s to hoping to see many of us return to be more active in the next year. 🙂
Happy Patch Day tomorrow!
