BFA Update : Slow and Steady Wins The [blank]

This is my second (or third) fully mobile written post. Please forgive the typos, grammar, and formatting errors that I somehow no longer feel responsible for due to the format. FREEDOM!

I am inching along in BFA. My Druid isn’t 114 yet and my Paladin isn’t 113. And my desire is to start another character on his/her journey to 120.

I’m enjoying it and first time through all quests reading everything and comprehending what is going on. Currently no desire to race to max level or the gear grind. The simple truth to this is that I burned myself out mid Legion on maximizing ilvl every week and thought I was enjoying it. That was until they did a gear catch up mechanic in 7.2 (I think?) And quest stuff started dropping that was higher than the Mythic+ items I was grinding out hard. This will happen again. I’m better off waiting for it than pushing myself up against it.

I’m more interested right now on exploring the game, my characters, working on tradeskills and making in game money so I don’t have to pay a sub. Tokens are the lowest since pre-legion right now and I want to take advantage of that.

All of this may change once I start re-doing content. I expect it to. But there is no rush for that.

My only gripe in BFA right now is that Azerite gear bonuses don’t swap on spec change – forcing the choice between dull play or multiple gear sets. Neither are attractive.

Well, I have a second one too, actually. I want to max out more tradeskills AND play more characters on both sides. However I can’t mail tradeskills items between factions on my own account. This seems counterintuitive to me. It’s my account and I should be able to share items among my own characters at will.

This is a silly restriction that really should be gone sooner rather than later. Highly unsatisfying and unecessary barrier to fun.

For example, I want a tailor to upgrade bags for all of my characters. I should be able to mail them to them (and them only).

Otherwise, lots of fun to be had so far. Happy to be playing.
