Invasion to Nazjatar

Was home sick at the end of last week so couldn’t do much but when I felt better on Friday evening/Saturday I remembered that putting a character through the Nazjatar intro quests gives quite some nice gear upgrades, so I set out to get shit done while I wasn’t feeling so well to really enjoy anything but well enough to sit and do some mindless grinding.

There were some of my characters that had already started and/or completed the Nazjatar story lines:

  • Dwarf Paladin, iLvl ~400
  • Orc Rogue, iLvl ~398
  • Troll Warrior, iLvl ~355

But in the meantime I had gotten quite a few more 120s and the Benthic gear tokens were already piling up a bit so I devised a strategy how to best spend them. Unfortunately I didn’t write down the exact item levels, but I remember them mostly…

  • NE Demon Hunter, ~370
  • NE Warrior, ~370
  • Worgen Druid, ~360
  • Human Rogue, ~350
  • BE Warlock, ~340
  • Pandaren Monk, ~340
  • BE Priest, ~330
  • Orc Shaman, ~315

So I started, first running all the 4 Alliance toons through the intro quests, grabbing the 370 weapon, 385 Head/Shoulders/Chest piece, then finally the 400 Benthic Legs/Feet/Hands piece. Then the 4 Horde toons.

And then I handed out the Benthic tokens I had banked. And then I did all the Nazjatar WQs that gave Benthic tokens or Manapearls (haven’t spent those yet). And then I did most emissary quests that were up over the whole weekend and grabbed all the WQs with gear upgrades. Now I have too many Benthic Chest and Feet tokens spare, but whatever.

This is the final outcome now:

  • Dwarf Paladin, 406
  • Orc Rogue, 403
  • Troll Warrior, 382
  • NE Demon Hunter, 395
  • NE Warrior, 391
  • Worgen Druid, 383
  • Human Rogue, 382
  • BE Warlock, 378
  • Pandaren Monk, 369
  • BE Priest, 375
  • Orc Shaman, 383

So now I’m just unsure what’s the best strategy to upgrade with Manapearls is – get one item really high (430), get a few to medium high (400 to 420ish), or get the 385s to 400? I tend to think getting a few to 420 is the best bet, because then there are still some lower level slots where upgrades can be found easier. W e’ll see.

I did mention this very rare grinding mood, so there’s a few more things I did

  • Did “The Missing Crew” for the Champion on all missing toons (9?)
  • Herbalism to 175 on 3 Alliance toons and 1 Horde toon
  • Mining to 175 on one Alliance toon
  • Did the “Pick 10 Akunda’s Bite without being shocked” 4 times
  • Found 9 Anchor Weed nodes on one toon for the quest
  • About 5-8 other Herbalism/Mining quests
  • Got Alchemy from 70ish to nearly 140
  • Got Jewelcrafting from 60ish to 130

And oh my, I love Flying so much. I think I wouldn’t have done *any* of those things without it.
