While most people are starting Shadowlands, I've been finishing up a few things before I take another break from World of Warcraft. Before Shadowlands released, I finished up the prepatch quests on Kanter, my hunter, and got the pre-patch weapon on Kantra, my priest.
I had come to a standstill on the Tiller quests for Kintri, my Vulpera rogue. A quest required flying and I was still in my low 20s. Finally, over Thanksgiving break I was able to focus on finishing up some of the quests in Jade Forest and made it to level 30.
First, I had to either avoid or wait on the queues. Area 59, where my Horde characters are, had a two hour queue on Monday and Tuesday when Shadowlands started so I decided to do something else and play in the morning when there weren't queues. I thought I'd want to play my alliance druid, Kantree, to get him to level 40 (he's at 45 now), but I don't seem to be motivated to do that. I had to wait for a couple of 20 to 30 minute queues earlier in the week but I haven't had any queues during the day the last two days.
Once I hit 30 I was able to advance the tiller quest line and get the last two votes so I could join the Tillers Union and get my reputation to exalted. I've turned in the quest for the final 4 plots on the farm (not that I've used more than 8 at any time). I'm at level 31 and the agility food (Sautéed Carrots) work at level 32 so I'll make some to have them available.
At this point, I'm ready to see the Horde introduction to Warlords of Draenor so I will switch Chromie time to that expansion. I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as Mists of Pandaria, but I think it is the best opportunity to see something new since I think most of the Pandaria quests remaining are similar for Horde and Alliance.
Overall, I'm very happy with the leveling experience so far. I'm looking forward to trying out Warlords of Draenor. I don't think I'll make it all the way to level 50 before my subscription runs out but I'm enjoying it and maybe I'll come back to level Kintri and Kantree another time. The ability to see more of individual expansions rather than jumping between them is a great change to the game.
