>I also today I learned I can upgrade honor gear for honor.
Lol doh, I only knew that because I'd seen it on wowhead tbh, although
the coenant gear having a "Rank 1 of 7" suggested it, but nobody said
where to do it.
In my case it wasn't an option till now anyway, as the upgrades are
unlocked by covenant campaign, not renown... and guess who managed to
pick the one covenant (at least for the sake of my alts I *hope* it's
the only one) that has a required dungeon early in the campaign!
Anyway, my bf and I have been gearing (he luckily is not the same
covenant) and this week figured we've got high enough gear to duo it
now, and we had a shot tonight, success! Not super easy, I'd say ilvl
195-200 would be easier than the 185-190 we're at, but we made it
anyway, so I can finally catch up :-)

Hehe nice to get a big upgrade like that, I think I'll be on for
similar once I get through my campaign questlines, as I'll get the
latest WQ reward buff plus the covenant set piece upgrades - although
I'm just happy to get more of the story tbh, gear is a bonus!

Druid and the maw is a good combination, I'm very jealous of them
while I'm plodding along on foot, with no stealth :-P Elethium is up
and down a bit, certainly not low enough that I'm considering
prospecting it yet (although I maybe should look and see what the
prospecting rates on it are, perhaps I'm mising out on good stuff!)
>Besides that. I like the expansion so far. Well. Too much flying and

Beats me, I guess we're expected to hearth there and not Oribos once
we get it, well I probably will do that as I visit HQ so often, but a
separate one would've been nice. And I really miss my whistle to get
out of WQ areas after doing them, to the point that some particularly
annoyingly located quests I purposely leave till last in a zone so I
can just hearth out...

Wow, congrats! :-) 374 here, looong way off, although I'll get Blanchy
in a couple of days, if I can find her up... I did enjoy my luck in
the closing days of BFA, where I managed to find the last friendly
alpaca to feed on the same day as the world boss dropped Mollie the
alpaca! Very cute mounts those, although the movement isn't too
comfortable so I'm not using them at present.
>Also. 2 days ago I hit 100 exalted reputations too. Woohoo! :)
Yay, grats again :-)

Doh, timing - that said, it's still possible to stick alts on follow
and tab between them to tag, so long at it's something you could solo
anyway... I've long done that in old raids, as it hurts when a
legendary I can't equip drops (my one and only warglaive is sitting in
my druid's bank...), so I make sure to take a class which can use it!
>But all in all. I'm having a laid-back experience in this expansion. :)
Same, I rapidly realised that the gearing this time is very much
designed for group-orientated people, which I'm not, so I scaled back
to just doing callings and some extra WQs for rep, covenant stuff,
world boss, Maw weeklies for rep, and Torghast.
Actually really enjoying Torghast since they improved the droprate on
interesting abilities - I'm not geared enough to get that far yet but
I'm clearing lvl 5 on normal wings ok, even if I couldn't finish
Twisting Corridors lvl 1 this week (reached floor 15, so not that far
off, better luck with powers or a bit better gear will do it). Will be
nice to be getting covenant story each week again from now on, so
there's stuff to do, if not so much as I might like, but hey, it gives
me time to do stuff outside WoW!
