Now that I’ve reached my primary Patch 8.2 goal of obtaining the Tauren Heritage Armor, what next?
Securing flying in Battle for Azeroth zones ought to be the next major goal, right?

I am currently about a quarter of the way from Honored to Revered with the Unshackled, and I’m about 2/3rds done with the “get 3000 XP for your Kelfin buddies” quest.

I prioritize my Kelfin buddy’s quests, because that’s the gate on the zone story questchain. I do those, plus whatever Mardivas puzzle chests are up, and whatever WQs I pass through on the way to my Kelfin buddy’s quests and the Mardivas puzzle chests. I don’t try to do all the WQs in the zone. Although I pick up the Requisition and Bounty quests, I mostly ignore them because even with the nerfs, I rarely manage to complete them “as I go along” while doing my higher priority objectives, and I don’t ever feel like running around the zone looking for those things after I’ve completed my higher priority objectives. I’ve picked up an Unshackled Contract, so I’ve been doing the Zandalar Emissaries again, too — if I feel like I have the time and energy.

I’ll figure out a Mechagon routine when I get there, which won’t be until after I’ve reached Revered in Nazjatar.

Besides various RL events and the uncomfortable realization that the beginning of Fall semester is only about 5 weeks away, so I really need to get back to work on getting my courses set up, I’m getting distracted again by other things I want to accomplish in Azeroth.

Now that I’ve got my (Kalimdor) Tauren Heritage Armor, part of me wants to abandon BfA content for awhile and just level my Highmountain Tauren Druid up to 110 so she can get her Highmountain Tauren Heritage Armor.

Thinking about that reminds me that I want to get Kaelinda up to 120 to get the Sin’dorei Heritage Armor. (There’s my Void Elf to be leveled, too, but she’s much lower priority because I am less interested in the Void Elf Heritage Armor.)

And what about Kaylynda and the whole Alliance side of the story — not to mention recruiting the Kul Tirans?

And then there’s my Tauren Druid, for whom I’ve been collecting a bunch of leather Island Expeditions stuff off of the AH, and my Night Elf Druid, who would like to give being dark-eyed a try…

…But, flying

a conversation with Kaelinda

So Kaelinda comes up to me and says, “I think I want to do Deaths of Chromie. I rather like the shoulder style from the Chronoscryer’s Finery, and I already have all the other recolors of those pauldrons — and the Chronoscryer’s Finery set as a whole has grown on me since the 7.2.5 preview, too.”

I looked at her and said, “Get in line. Karaelia already wants to do Deaths of Chromie for the bronze recolor of the dragon head pauldrons.”

She retorted, “Yeah, but life outside of Azeroth is getting more demanding, and we’re getting tired. As much as you like that Kul Tiran plate, you’ve just sent Karaelia back to her Order Hall to join the Mission-Table-and-Kirin-Tor-Emissary Suramar Paragoning crew so that you can focus on leveling your Mages and Druids in Battle for Azeroth. And don’t deny that you’ve been contemplating letting Kamalia stay at home and leveling me or Kerisa first in the next expansion.”

I sighed. “Get to level 120 and get your Sin’dorei Heritage Armor, and then we’ll talk about letting you do Deaths of Chromie.”

The Twelve Classes were on Bloodhoof. The Mages (except for Kaelinda) were on Argent Dawn. All other Horde characters were on Duskwood (Bloodhoof’s linked realm). All other Alliance characters were on The Scryers (Argent Dawn’s linked realm). This was a good system of organization, I thought, tidy and nicely compartmentalized.

Then one evening earlier this week I logged on and did some WQs with Kamalia, flipped over to Argent Dawn to do a few quests in Kul Tiras with Kaylynda, flipped over to Duskwood to do some questing in Mulgore with my Highmountain Tauren Druid, flipped over to The Scryers to take my Night Elf Druid to Boralus — and realized that I was tired of doing that much jumping between realms. Wouldn’t it be nicer if everyone I was actively doing stuff with was on the same realm? On not-quite-an-impulse — I’ve been considering this for a few weeks — I moved Kaylynda, Kaelyla, Kerithian, and Kashina to Bloodhoof. Kashina was the only one who ended up needing a name change; she became Kasheena. My Dwarf Paladin and Dwarf Shaman can stay on The Scryers for now, until I’m ready to start actively doing stuff with them in Battle for Azeroth content.

~*~*~

Gnomecore’s post on the Dwarf Heritage Armor questline reminds me that I should check up on my reputations for my favorite Base Races. Kamalia is Exalted with Thunder Bluff, of course; she’ll be able to go get the Tauren Heritage Armor when Patch 8.2 arrives. Kaelinda is Exalted with Silvermoon; she just needs to get to 120 already so she can go collect the Blood Elf Heritage Armor. Kaylynda is Exalted with Stormwind, so she’ll be ready whenever the Human Heritage Armor is released. Kerithian is only at Honored with Darnassus, so she needs put on her Darnassus tabard and start farming Darnassus rep so that she’ll be ready whenever the Night Elf Heritage Armor is released. Kyraleia and Kjerstin are both at Revered with Ironforge; they would need both leveling to 120 and some rep grinding to qualify for the Dwarf Heritage Armor.

The three main ways that I’ve farmed Classic capital city reputation in the past have been the Argent Tournament, doing the Cooking and Fishing dailies, and running dungeons while wearing the tabard. Of those three options, I’ll probably take the third one with Kerithian; I’ve found that Heroic Ahn’kahet gives good city rep (2958) if you completely clear it, and Kerithian could certainly use the money she’d get from vending everything she picked up in the process.

This week I’ve been methodically bringing each of the rest of the Twelve Classes out to Dazar’alor, setting her Hearthstone at the Great Seal, choosing a zone for her to begin questing — and then sending her through the portal to Thunder Bluff to relax at home until I’m ready to begin actively leveling with her. I’ve also sent my Blood Elves back home to Silvermoon. Only the alts whom I am most interested in leveling next — Kaelinda, Kerisa, and Karaelia — got to stay in Zandalar. Actually, Kaelinda isn’t in Zandalar, either; she’s hanging out in the Hall of the Guardian watching her mission table and the Legion emissaries, making another vain attempt at getting the Leywoven Flying Carpet from Paragoning for the Nightfallen.

Kamalia is slowly working through the Horde War Campaign one segment at a time on Sunday evenings. I looked over reputations; of course she has to get to Revered with everyone to get flying. Then which factions should I push to Exalted? Magni, to get the necklace upgrades. Voldunai, so that if the Vulpera ever become an Allied Race, I’ll be ready. Talanji’s Expedition, because it’s the prettiest Horde BfA faction tabard and looking at it in the dressing room the other day, I began daydreaming of mogging with it. And the Zandalari, I guess, even if I don’t roll a Zandalari character, because I’ve heard that the Zandalari recruitment scenario is Talanji’s coronation, and I’d rather like to see that. On the Alliance side, when I get there, I’ll probably only push the Proudmoore Admiralty all the way to Exalted, so that I can unlock the Kul’Tiran Allied Race. Unless any of the others have something attractive to wear… then maybe I’ll do those, too.

Have A Heart (of Azeroth)

When each character went to receive her Heart of Azeroth, I wanted her to be wearing an outfit that was representative of a Champion of her Class Order.

Now that the Twelve Classes and the Blue Team have all received their Hearts of Azeroth, it’s time to start moving folks out to Zandalar/Kul Tiras. In fact, the Blood Elves have already gone and gotten their Hearthstones set to the Great Seal, so it’s really just the Tauren and the Blue Team who need to get going.

This has been a good week.

* Kamalia dinged 120 in Vol’dun. Having gotten distracted by what turned out to be not just a node but a full-blown hub of sidequests, she still has to do the last two major storyline chapters of the zone. I plan to try to complete Vol’dun before tackling the rest of the War Campaign and all the other stuff there is to do now that she’s reached the level cap…

* The three classes whose complete Order Hall sets I most wanted — Paladin, Druid, and Monk — have all managed to reach Exalted with Suramar. Those three characters are also Exalted with Highmountain, so they’re now ready to roll out to Dazar’alor.

* My Demon Hunter, Rogue, and Warlock are also done with Legion stuff. I don’t intend to level in Zandalar with them anytime soon, though, so I’m not sure whether I want to send them to Dazar’alor anyway, leave them in New Dalaran, or take them “home” to Silvermoon.

* My Monk had reached ~175 World Quests completed since obtaining the Hidden appearance for her Brewmaster Artifact, so I took an evening to clear the map of World Quests and get the 200 World Quests tint for the Hidden appearance.

* My Demon Hunter got the last Mission Table mission that she needed to reach Exalted with the Army of the Light. Now I can go do the Lightforged Draenei recruitment scenario and find out what all the fuss about T’Paartos was about back when Patch 7.3.5 was new (Having spent my tweens and teens reading Star Trek novels, however, I can’t help but think that T’Paartos sounds like a name for a Vulcan woman, rather than a name for a Draenei man…).

The point of making a To-Do List is to feel a sense of progression, achievement, and accomplishment by crossing things off of it when they are completed, yes?

It’s the end of the year, so now it’s time to revisit the “Bucket List” that I posted at the beginning of the year, with all the stuff that I actually managed to accomplish crossed off.

* Complete the Good Suramaritan (27 January) and Suramar Insurrection (15 March) storylines with Kaelinda

* Level Hunter (April 20), Druid (May 4), Paladin (May 12), Warrior (May 28), Priest (June 3), Death Knight (June 11), Monk (June 14), Warlock (July 1), and Rogue (July 2) to 110

* Complete 7.0 Order Hall Campaigns for Druid, Warlock, Rogue, Hunter, Monk, Warrior, Priest, Paladin, Death Knight (last Order Hall Campaign completed on 28 July)

* Do enough of Broken Shore with each character to obtain their Legionfall Champion

* Do Argus campaign with Kiralaira

* LFR Emerald Nightmare with Kerisa

* Do the Blacksmithing questchain with Keija at least until she can craft the Demonsteel set

* Level Kaylynda to 110 (May 28)

* Recruit Nightborne, do Void Elves, and Highmountain Tauren

* Kerisa needs to be Exalted with Dreamweavers. Keija needs to be Exalted with Valarjar. Karaelia wants to be Exalted with Valarjar because Valarjar tabard is pretty and has colors suitable for “I wanna be SHINY!” Mogs. Kaohana needs to be be Exalted with Valarjar to be able to obtain the Hidden appearance for the Holy Artifact. All Tauren will want to be Exalted with Highmountain (still working on this…).

* Continue Paragoning Highmountain with Kamalia and Suramar with Kaelinda until moose and flying carpet mounts have been obtained (I abandoned Paragoning for Highmountain because the moose mount for recruiting the Highmountain Tauren Allied Race is cooler looking anyway, but I am still stubbornly plugging away at Suramar with Kaelinda)

These objectives were not achieved, and I may or may not get around to doing them because I’m getting itchy to just move on to Battle for Azeroth content already

* Do enough of Broken Shore with Kaylynda to see the Anduin-retrieves-Shalamayne cinematic

* Do the Xe’ra’s Revisionist History Of Illidan questline with Kiralaira

* Do the Deaths of Chromie scenario with Karaelia to earn the bronze version of the plate dragon head shoulders

I didn’t accomplish everything on my list, but I’m pretty happy with what I did accomplish!
