The second wing up, third incoming, and having more things IRL to do, I’ve found myself lacking gaming time to achieve the weekly goals.
I definitely cannot cover the whole number of raid wings on every alt – in fact, not even half of them. My alt management from now on is as follows:
1. Warfronts are a thing, I am hunting transmog on every alt – especially the scenario reward items which are visually more awesome than drop ones. Them being 380 for Arathi and 400 for Darkshore doesn’t hurt. Also I collect medals.
2. Holiday bosses on every alt daily – and even if Arkeona the 54 Nightborne cannot get a rocket, it’s a half-level XP boost upon completion. Don’t miss the chance to help your low levels!
3. As for raids, I’ve decided I will be digging one armor type at a time – others join only if I have time left. For example, now I’m focusing on cloth – that means Micromantica, Jellica and Kargash will grind the raid until all drops for them will be ‘already known’. Actually I have only a boot slot left and several weapons. The cape has not dropped yet, but I am not hunting ‘world drops’ (that means: BoE from trash), and I consider a set complete without it.
The second wing runs on weekend were not cool. People have great troubles with Opulence – mostly because of boss resets. I think it should take a couple of weeks for everyone to get the idea – but for now it could be up to three wipes. My melee toons are dying on both bosses and trash, and mostly these are insta kills, where you have little to no time to react. Not as nasty as Uldir’s second wing, but it appeared to be not a ponyland walk as I previously wrote in my review.
I came to a conslusion that I don’t like the character race change – well, mostly because of transmog issues. I would have been happier if I could keep it from original toons. Fearella the goblin turns into a gnome, fully clad in knight armor, and it’s basically a walking helmet – a look I would never use on my gnomes. Well, I guess we will have to deal with it. But all in all it’s nice idea considering lore, so I wouldn’t think of it as Blizzard’s failure. The things to improve would be an option to pick a race through talking with a special NPC, and also keep the original transmog if you like.
With current state of events, the raid will keep me busy at least until the end of April (if gods of drop would be merciful), and then I will have a Nightborne and a Kul Tiran for lull time before Nazjatar. As always, alts keep me busy.
