I added up all the rep I need and it's 35k if I get like 600 a day that's only 58 something days fuck me did they reduce the amount of world quests that spawn a day or what? I should have done this when I was looking for a job now I'm way too busy to spend 58 days doing dailies.

y'all leveling Zandas have your full Zanda Troll dungeon party yet? Just got a full Kt one (druid tank, druid healer (me), shaman, boomkin and rogue), always neat.

Protip: if you still have old extra WoW accounts around without subs attached, you can upgrade them to BFA while it's on sale right now for cheap; gives all your accounts access to the 110 boost. Should be way cheaper than actually buying a boost!

e.g. right now, I have an extra account that's on Legion. Upgrading to BFA costs me $37.99 CDN during this sale. Much cheaper than $75.00 for a boost on its own!

I'm a sucker and changed my Paladin into a Zandalari Troll. I will miss Arcane Torrent but I will not miss having to actually play as a Blood Elf. Absolutely disgusting.

Still can't figure out why I can't continue the horde war campaign. Frustrating, I want that horse :(

1 top 60 (well, 20 to 60 with allied races I guess) is still a breeze, if they would just make it so everything up to 110 (or previous xpac basically) was the same speed, leveling wouldnt make me want to kill myself everytime >_>

ok I don't follow anything about Alliance, because I haven't played an Alliance character since TBC

but are all the playable Kul Tirans fat characters? not all the female Kul Tirans?

You can only play as the bulky ones.

Man the war campaign really is something this patch.

So yeah it appears you do need to defeat Jaina to progress the Horde war campaign in 8.1.5. Makes sense once you actually do it and see why but bit weird to require it on Horde but not Alliance. Oh well, done now.

That sucks. I beat her on my Alliance toon, wasn't planning on doing it on my Horde.

So, I haven't played since WotLK dropped (holy crap, it's been more than a decade) but I'm itching to get back in.

Problem is I'd want to play on a laptop (travel a lot for work, real-life responsibilities make it tough to stay planted in front of a stationary screen/monitor for a long time). I know it's not the preferred way to play and that I'll be spending more as a result, but any good laptop recommendations?

Don't need to be playing it on ultra settings; just want a stable FPS and a solid machine.

Any advice? I'm a total computer/tech novice here.

Man Blizzard is just handing out rep like it's going out of style if you haven't done the trolls capital zone before I went from Friendly 4k to honored 5k and I still have 4 more quest lines to go wohoo! I'm turning in quests and getting 75-250 per quest I'm so happy I started alliance and faction changed back to the horde.

I'd be lying if I said that KTs going live didn't make me want to resub and race change everything I have to them.

I'm falling for their usual, predictable tricks, but damn if they don't know me.

I'm gonna be 100% honest with you here:

the best feature of 8.1.5 is that 8.2 has to come on to the PTR "soon" so we can get an idea of what the remainder of this expansion will look like. I have a feeling (scientific, I know) that this, 8.2 I mean, is the final make or break moment they're gonna get.

using Azeroth Auto Pilot, the actual quest part does nothing for me because Ive done these so many fucking times, not only do I have my own optimal path but I dont need no way point telling me where to go. I do like the auto accept / auto fly to next point etc functions tho, so I'll keep it. One weird thing tho, why the fuck is it telling me to go to Loch Modan after WPL? That makes no sense, EPL is RIGHT THERE next to WPL wtf?

Anyway, I'm shockingly enjoying Boomkin. I really didnt like it last time I tried (years ago) to the point where I was going to go Feral to level this KT, but Feral really didnt do anything for me unfortunately, but Boomkin seems much better now. I like the proc based gameplay, Starsurge hits like a fucking truck, the tree ent cooldown is amazing and only 1min, and I took a peak ahead in the talents and noticed that laser from the sky is just a flat damage spell now, it doesnt drain your entire resource bar, and thats much better.

The plan is always to go resto but at least I'll actually enjoy a dps spec to do world quests and shit (well assuming I dont get bored out of my mind soon)

It tells you to go to places where there’s the highest concentration of quests and the “speed of completion.” You won’t always do full zones and they’re trying to get you through ASAP

wow that sucks

so if I'm not good enough to do the raid, I can't continue the story?

I thought Jaina was the end boss of the raid that just came out, so I assume she's super hard I heard
I mean you can do the raid on LFR which is like a 350 ilevel queue. You can get a big chunk of gear from Timewalking right now. It's just a pain in the ass to be forced to do it when you don't want to.

but I heard some of the LFR end bosses are still really hard for people who don't normally raid? which I assume is pretty much everyone in LFR

like in Uldum, I thought I heard the end boss (can't remember the name because I've never tried Uldum) was hard in LFR and took a lot of coordination?

I did Jania the first hour it was up in LFR and we one shot it. Never tried it again. I have found reset day to be the best time for LFR.

Is there anything we need to do to take advantage of multi-core performance for WoW? I believe it was enabled in either 8.1 or 8.1.5?
in 8.1.5 two new things happened --

They enabled DX12 in Windows 7, which is the first game to ever do so.

They also wrote a new DX11 renderer to take advantage of multi-core systems. The old DX11 version was primarily written for old single-core CPUs.

So in the Advanced settings, you will see three choices now. The old one is labeled DX11 Legacy, for compatibility players as a backup.

Read the details directly from Blizzard:

Hit 349 after finishing the war story just gotta beat Jania in the raid and that's checked off now all I have left is finish the other two horde zones and hit exalted with the z trolls but hitting exalted should only take two or 3 weeks.

So the new Heart of Azeroth quest gives you +10 ilevels on your neck. I did it on my main, but can't be bothered to do it on my alts. Finished most of the 8.1.5 content already, including getting Bruce the Brawler mount. I'm bored again.

Unlocked KT and Zandalari but no way am I leveling again right now.

At least the neck piece upgrade takes about 5 minutes only.
