The whole business appeared to be not that scary:
It’s the end of week 2, and 4 of my classes are already fussing in The Nighthold. I also got some stats from this raid: apparently Myde’s 6 nightshards are an uncommon situation, so you are supposed to complete this final step in just a couple of cooldowns.
How long does it really take?
Reputations are not hard to get either. About a couple of hours to playthrough Azsuna quests and get Honored, same with Valarjar but throw in a bit world questing until Revered. Suramar Revered could be done in one sit if you just follow questlines – well, you need to do them anyways in all three zones. Order Hall Campaign could also be done in a couple of days from scratch. That makes the whole prep a week long at the very max – and not with 24/7 gameplay at all.
If you already have reputations, the Balance of Power questline overall time expenses are as follows:
- 1 hour for Azsuna step
- 40 minutes for 2 Emerald Nightmare runs (about 20 minutes per run)
- 3 hours for Suramar/Stormheim step
- 1-1,5 hours for 3 Nighthold runs (about 30 minutes per run)
Easy and enjoyable to do, and The Nighthold bosses are very generous :) I’ve got Hunter and Mage normal sets complete, Shaman, Warrior, Paladin and Death Knight lacking a couple of items. Way to go – reset is coming tomorrow!
