Cinder and I have opened up our shared blog topic challenge for everyone to join in on. The more the merrier!
I took a completely different style to levelling in BFA than any other expansion. Normally I’d group up with a bunch of friends and we’d run through the quests and queue dgn but this time I really wanted to see the story so I decided to quest by myself so I could read as much or as little of the quest texts and poke around sightseeing and it was by far the best choice I’ve made.
I had a ball actually reading quests and finishing off each quest line and zone achievements before moving to the next. I had taken a few days off from work so I didn’t have to rush I picked up every side quest I came past but im still surprised by how many I find now that i missed. I do want to go back and finish all the little ones ive missed before BFA ends.
I felt I was levelling really slowly since I was taking my time but I reached 120 on the Thursday night after release so it was actually quite fast. I only popped into dgns when the story brought me to them because I didn’t want to see spoilers for the quest lines.
My ally levelling was a lot more fractured because there’s been huge gaps while I’m been on my Horde doing the main story and then world quests and gearing on my Horde girl. I was determined to see the Ally story in full, just like Horde so I picked up every quest and fully completed a zone before going to the next
While it felt a little strange at the start not being in a group, I actually had a lot more fun questing this way and I’ll be doing the same next time too.
