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.
