Wow Alt Addiction posted his leveling plans for his many alts in the new expansion. I’m not sure if he rotates between them or methodically runs each to max level one by one.
If you look at the two year time frame of most expansions, there is plenty of time to do it either way. You don’t want to be me and wait, Last Minute Louie fashion till a new expansion is announced, then you’re amazed (!) at all the cool content added, and all the things you wish you had done as the expansion went along.
I am determined this time around to keep up with all of the content releases. With all the characters who are eligible. I know I can do it!
Here is my plan for leveling, and I will most likely go back and forth between characters, as I always do:
In Legion, I sent characters to start all over the Broken Isles map thinking it would keep things fresh. I now think I should have just gone clockwise. That’s how I’m approaching Kul Tiras, everyone will go Tiragarde Sound, Drustvar, Stormsong Valley.
For the first time, I am wishing the Pre-Patch for the expansion wouldn’t come till…later sometime. That Stat Squish. The Talent changes (argh!)
I’m eager for the expansion itself and am pretty tired of the Broken Isles. Far more exciting adventures are ahead, that I know.
I’ve sent all my 110s through the Silithus quests to close off your Artifact Power (even though it does max it out, the dozens of Artifact Power Rewards just keep pouring in and you have to sell them off to a vendor). Now useless. In fact, when you’d get something worth fifty bazillion trillion in Artifact Power and your Artifact Experience Bar barely moved, it felt pretty useless anyway.
I wasn’t going to send my newly 110 Demon Hunter to do those quests because I thought at iLevel 780 she wouldn’t be able to do the quests at all. But then I thought, what if she’s really held back by not having that Power Maxed.
It took over an hour with some dungeon runs interspersed, creeping her iLevel up to 805!!! just to get the Mineral Drops from the little ratty creatures. I could not do more than one at a time and used up a load of health potions just to kill each one. Was able to skip the Guy in the Outhouse quest and the Silithid Brains Quest and still complete the Artifact sequence. My Demon Hunter went from Artifact Power of 7, yes, 7, to 143. Yo.
Further prep for Tues is still working on my Rogue’s iLevel, and the Demon Hunter, who now stands a fighting chance. Maybe.
I’m going to take screenshots of my current Talents and Rotations so I have a base for all the changes incoming.
Then I’m ready.
