Nice, that was a lot quicker gearing than I got lol, you're already
way ahead of me on Renown too as I got bored and stopped playing back
in the low 30s... was actually thinking of picking it up and
progressing a bit nearer 40 soon so I can be ready for 9.1, but, eh,
that's not even on the PTR yet so no rush!

I should upgrade a few pieces for anima soon, still got some that
would be beneficial to take to 197, but the speed of getting it was
such a drag. I put basically all my anima into the upgrades, maxed my
transport network so I have the portal to Oribos (so I moved my hearth
to my sanctum, seeing as the innkeeper is right next to the Oribos
portal), the rest are lvl 2 and not moving particularly fast, none
interest me enough for the grind so I might go for gear next.

Ah cool, I did enjoy the one dungeon I did with my bf, might have a go
at some of the others whenever he next resubs, especially if we get
some better gear in 9.1, we're of a lvl where it's rather challenging
right now (to the point where awkward mechanics would wreck us),
another 10-20 ilvls would help there.

Yep! I actually enjoy it for gameplay, when I get good powers (and
when I'm NOT in Mortr'gor, that one just sucks, tiny platforms which
contain 2 elites plus a load of non-elites, cmon... I can do anywhere
else on lvl 8, while that place has me cursing the unfairness of
fights on lvl 5) but the rewards are just not worth the time spent, so
once I maxed my legendary I got bored.
Sort of sums up Shadowlands for me so far, "got bored". Partly me I
guess, but also partly the expansion, shame this is the 3rd expansion
out of 4 where I was bored waiting for the .1 or .2 patch to hit
though, at least it usually gets more interesting for me in later
Meanwhile, I resubbed to Elder Scrolls Online last week and am having
fun there, they have a double exp holiday event at present (actually 2
holidays in a row = 3 weeks of it), which I'd avoid during ordinary
levelling, as outlevelling my gear makes fighting anything somewhat
painful, but as I'm past that stage and just wanting champion points
for the recently changed max lvl talents system, it's great! One day
I'll run out of content there but that won't be anytime soon, I'm only
about halfway through the original game, never mind all the expansions
