I had a great couple of weeks in BFA running a simulacrum of my live Druid. I’d have been in sooner, but didn’t see the invite. So close! I got her to 117 and in a day or so would have maxed the character, but an update sidelined her, and she was mostly unplayable.
So I made characters matching the “Fabulous Five” who are 110s on live working on reputation and ilevels. Then I thought I should bring in a Discipline Priest like my live character. She’s my jeweler and the only crafter not leveled up.
I played her through the Lordaeron scenario and she did really well, no deaths! Then I sent her out into Tiragarde Sound to see how she did solo. No problems!
Boom! Alpha is done and it’s beta time. Character copy from live is on the way. I could just work on one character solo to kill time. Or, I could recreate the characters I’d made for alpha and let those be my characters who worked through this content, so it is still all new for my live folks.
So they’re all back! I’ve run my Druid, Fire Mage and Discipline Priest through Lordaeron, and will get everyone else though. Most are playing pretty identically to my live characters. I liked a couple of them so much I made “copies” of them on live, name, class, race, professions.
I previously didn’t have a reason to pre-order Battle for Azeroth, but now that I love the way my Priest plays, I pre-ordered today so she has plenty of time to work on ilevels.
She’s boosted from 83 to 110 and has really beautiful armor and is ready to take on anything.
Love my gnomes.
