Nah I’m good refuse to touch BFA contentagain.. seriously though imagine having to play BFA during the pre patch to gear.. joke....
Best way to gear new characters is to just wait until the pre-patch event starts - for now, just level alts as all the 'catch up' gear for fresh characters is trash and a sad joke (like getting a ilvl 60 weapon from the Naz quest when your character has an ilvl 80 artifact from Legion).Blizzard dropped the ball - visions could have been good had they made changes such as dropping way more currency, lowering the cost for each run, dropping more upgrade items to reduce upgrade time, etc.Sure, if you have characters already leveled and geared and have friends with the same, then just trade carries in M+, Ny'alotha, or visions.Oh and don't get me started on them removing this week's previously scheduled Timewalking event - that would have also been a decent means to gear new characters, but the next one now shows as December.
Unfortunately the gear rewards in World Quests are bugged and not scaling properly. They are supposed to scale up to item level 81, but only my characters who are ABOVE that item level are receiving gear that that ilvl. I have characters are 75, 78 and 79 who are still only receiving ilvl 69 gear from WQs.I've reported it as a bug to the developers, I hope it gets fixed soon.
Please put together a guide with consideration to people that never actually did any BFA content before pre-patch (no leftover prismatic pearls for benthic gear, they have to unlock world quests, etc.). My friends are having to go through a big chunk of BFA before they can get their essences and cloak, and it's made worse because they chose to level in non-BFA zones to get to level 50.
lol - benthic gear takes farming pearls for hours/days and to get the gear tokens you have to go through a huge 3-4 hour quest line to get your cloak first. This is not how you "catch up" alts by investing tons of time into them.
whats pristine? O.o
It is REALLY SAD that the leading thing here isn't Uncanny crafted 72 gear... You are recommending people waste time in Nazjatar when cheap better gear is already craftable and sold on the AH...I'd put this as #1 too - first thing a level 50 should do is buy every slot of Uncanny - because that *immediately helps* you with world quests by upping your ilevel for better rewards./doh
so catch up gear for the catch up gear?
