This week I decided I was done with Battle for Azeroth (BfA) in World of Warcraft (WoW). I completed an emissary quest and an invasion for the Honorbound and that gave me the reputation I needed for the rest of the Vol'jin quest and the Mag'har Orc allied. I look to see how much time was left on my monthly subscription and there was a week left so it seemed like the right time to unsubscribe.
The question was what did I want to do during that week. I knew I wanted to the Vol'jin quest so that was first on the list. I enjoyed all parts of this quest line and as Alliance only, I never would have seen it. It'll be interesting to see how this gets investigated more, I am assuming it'll be within the Shadowlands expansion.

After the Vol'jin quest, I decided to confirm I had all the Horde allied race quests. I decided to do the Zandalari introductory quest since I was interested to see how it was handled. You help her with some activities to become queen and see her address the people as queen. It was good to see Queen Talanji hold her own with Sylvanas but certainly not as interesting as the Dark Iron Dwarf quest line. I decided the Mag'har Orc and High Mountain Tauren weren't different enough to do now.
I confirmed I had the Kul Tiran Humans, Void Elves, and Lightforged Draenai available. Since I already did the Dark Iron Dwarf questline, that only left the Mechagnomes that I already decided weren't worth the reputation grind. Instead of the other Allied races whose reputation quests are available as World quests in either Legion or the main BfA continent, Mechagnomes require travelling to a separate island to complete the quests and don't have any champion missions. I don't see it as worth the grind.
Since I have quite a few Alliance characters, I didn't have much incentive to complete these quests. I can do them any time. However, I only have one Horde character and I had missed the Demon Hunter questline along with most of Legion so I decided to create a Horde Demon Hunter as my last task in BfA. Odd it's a Legion task, but I have spent a lot of this end time in BfA discovering what I missed in Legion. With the experience buff I was level 105 by the time I finished the introductory quests and got the first Legendary weapon. The quest line was fine and a good length but would have been much more interesting while I was doing the
As of yesterday, my access to Wow is gone. It's a relief in one way in that there isn't much that I want to do. In another way it's always difficult when I don't have an MMO that I'm playing. I may join back for the pre-Shadowlands patch. That would be nice to see an would be a good opportunity to level another Horde character (probably a Vulpera warrior) to have available for when I do play Shadowlands. I'm going to try to wait to actually buy and play Shadowlands after the first or second major patch happens but when I read about peoples it might be difficult. I'm not sure what this means for this blog. I'll still be posting my Civilization turns and I have ideas for other posts but my experience has been previously that when I'm not playing an MMO I don't post. In any case, thanks for reading and the blog will still be available for me when the urge to write returns!
