This weekend was a majority comfort gaming weekend, and as a result I spent a good deal of my time working on the Orc Warrior. Sure I played some Destiny 2 and probably have some things to say about the Curse of Osiris DLC but I will save additional commentary for another day. I did manage to unlock prophecy weapons and grind out two of them in the periods of time when I was not actually playing World of Warcraft. Most of the weekend was spent leveling and I managed to ding 110 Sunday afternoon. From there I spent the rest of my time unlocking all of the stuff required to start doing world quests in Broken Isles and Argus all for the purpose of attempting to gear. After essentially an evening of cherry picking quests and doing the three emmisary caches available to me… I managed to push my level up to 846. I still have a ton of dungeons to run for the purpose of unlocking my class hall, but I do have through Nighthold LFR open to me and I am considering running that tonight for the purpose of trying to fill out some of the slots that are not amazing. Right now I still have one heirloom trinket left and that is severely dragging my average down. The other big problem I am having is that I have horrible relics and that is mostly a case of being unlock in the randomized item quests available in the world. Lastly my Helm is pretty horrible, but I could spend a little gold to bring it up a bit because its from the class hall.
It feels so odd to be doing the legion questing thing all over again on a brand new character, and I am not necessarily looking forward to doing all of Suramar or the Broken Isles storylines. That said if I keep poking around on this character I likely will just for the sake of things to do between the gear based world questing. It is going to be weird having both an Alliance and Horde main that are warriors, but then again there isn’t another class that I like anywhere near as well as them. I need to start doing a daily drive by at the deathwing alternate appearance as well. I am hoping the unlocks I did on my other Warrior will count towards that weapon appearance, but I am somehow doubting if they actually will or not. It would have been awesome if I just got them handed to me when I dinged on a second warrior, because some of these alternate appearances are worse than others. Like there is no way in hell I want to do the Corrupted Ashbringer appearance ever again… and sadly my next highest horde character is my 100 Tauren Paladin. I am thinking I probably won’t play that character until the expansion lands and just try and brush off all of the artifact madness from this expansion. In theory I should be focusing all of the classes I never leveled and working on trying to get them a class mount. Instead I am running up a duplicate class that I already have reasonable geared on the other side of the fence and cursing the fact that the faction wall exists in the first place. All of that said though… I do find the design of Legion and the micro-goals spread across my map a really relaxing way of spending an afternoon.
