Ooh! Shinies! Creating Shiny New Upgrades In This Week's Card Design Competition

What to do at Level 120
Raids, Warfronts, a new PvP season, and world bosses are still a couple weeks out, but there is plenty to do to get ready while you wait!

Gearing Up
  • You can purchase an item level 320 cloak from any reputation vendor that you have earned honored status with in Battle for Azeroth.
  • Normal mode dungeons at level 120 reward item level 310 gear.
  • You need an item level of 305 to queue for heroic dungeons. You can bypass this by creating a 5 man group and zoning in manually. Heroic dungeons reward item level 325 gear.
  • Mythic 0 dungeons are available. Make sure you complete all 10 dungeons weekly. They reward item level 340+ gear.

World Quests
  • To unlock world quests you must reach Level 120 and complete the quest Uniting Kul Tiras (A) or Uniting Zandalar (H). This means that you must also have completed the War Campaign quests up this point, which involves doing all three war campaign foothold quests in the zones on the opposite continent.
    • If you have not reached Friendly with the required factions, continue questing for the reputation.
    • Your emissaries can reward Azerite Armor and other useful gear up to item level 340.
    • Increasing your item level also increases your world quest rewards item level. The general rule of thumb is every 10 item levels you have increases the rewards to your item level + 10 to a max of 340 at item level 330.

Reputations
  • Champions of Azeroth is the most important reputation. Every rank up in reputation rewards your Heart of Azeroth with 15 item levels. Upon reaching Exalted you can also purchase a piece of item level 355 Azerite Armor. See our Champions of Azeroth Reputation Guide for more information.
    • Purchase (or make if you are a Scribe) a Contract: Champions of Azeroth as soon as possible. This rewards 10 reputation for the Champions of Azeroth when completing any world quest in Battle for Azeroth zones.
  • Prioritize 7th Legion/Honorbound reputation as well by completing world quests on the enemy continent. This reputation is needed for a variety of different unlocks.
    • You need 7,500 reputation into Honored to unlock one of the final 2 Mythic only dungeons Siege of Boralus or Kings' Rest, depending on your faction. The other dungeon is unlocked by completing the zones and and unlock chain.
    • You need to reach Revered in order to finish the War Campaign.
    • You need to reach Exalted to unlock the Dark Iron Dwarves or Mag'har Orc Allied races. (depending on faction)
  • All other reputations are also important. They each have a piece of item level 335 gear at Revered and a piece of item level 355 gear at Exalted.

Azerite Power Farming
  • Don't forget to farm Azerite Power for your Heart of Azeroth. Every rank up increases the item level of the neck piece by 2 and can unlock new Azerite powers in your Azerite Armor slots.
    • Make sure to max out your weekly Island Expeditions bar by collecting 40,000 Azerite during Island Expeditions over the week. This rewards 2,500 Azerite power and 1500 7th Legion/Honorbound reputation.
    • Heroic dungeons are another source of Azerite power farming.

Pathfinder - Part 1
  • Players are able to start earning the requirements for the first part of the flying achievement in Battle for Azeroth. Earning the Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part One achievement will increase your mount speed in all Battle for Azeroth zones. Here is a list of the requirements. Note that you do not need to complete both the Horde and Alliance questing zones to complete the achievement, but one or the other along with the War Campaign.
    • Battle for Azeroth Explorer - For this achievement you must fully uncover the map for all Battle for Azeroth zones on both continents.
    • Kul Tourist or Zandalar Forever! - For this achievement you must complete the main story quest chains in either all Kul Tiras zones or Zandalar zones.
    • Ready for War or Ready for War - This achievement requires completing either the Alliance or the Horde War Campaign quest chain.
    • Wide World of Quests - Complete 100 different world quests in Battle for Azeroth zones.
    • Azerothian Diplomat - Earn revered status with all Alliance/Neutral or Horde/Neutral reputations in Battle for Azeroth.

September 4th Unlocks
This is a short synopsis of what you can do until September 4th. On this date, several more options unlock.

  • Uldir Normal and Heroic mode unlock. Complete these for item level 355 and 370 gear.
  • Warfronts become available. They can reward item level 340 loot and your weekly quest grants you a piece of item level 370 gear.
  • World bosses should also unlock at this point and be on a rotation. Basic world bosses reward item level 355 gear and your faction specific one in Arathi Highlands can reward item level 370 gear.
  • Battle for Azeroth PvP Season 1 starts. Be sure to cap your conquest for the week in order to earn gear as well.
  • Battle for Azeroth Mythic Plus Season 1 starts. Complete a +10 during the week for a chance at item level 370 loot. This will also give you up to three pieces of gear in your weekly chest at reset, normal pieces being 380 item level and Azerite Armor pieces being 385 item level.

    Small correction, you unlock the first mythic only dungeon for your faction by completing Zandalar Forever or Kultourist respectively, the second is by the rep gate.

    Great summary. You should add a reminder to buy a contract for your preferred reputation (Champions of Azeroth) when reaching friendly with them.
  1. Ophenia's Avatar
    Should add that the weekly cap on Islands also grants 1500 reputation to Honorbound/7th Legion.

    This is correct. The reputation needed is actually 7,500 rep. Gaining this reputation alone does NOT grat you access to the oposite factions respective dungeon. Insted it unlocks the final questline you must complete. With the honorbound or 7th legion, depending on your faction, you must complete all of the questlines associated with them up to and including the final part that unlocks at 7,500 reputation. Only then can you run mythic kings rest (alliance), or siege of Boralus (horde).

    Let's not pretend there's more content than there really is, ok?
    We can combine most of what you've put in separate categories:
    You gear up by doing WQs and dungeons.
    You farm AP by doing WQ, dungeons and Island Expeditions (which don't reward as much AP as stated in the tooltip btw).
    You gain reputation by doing WQs and quests (most of which you'll do while leveling up).
    You do Pathfinder mostly by leveling up, doing WQs and farming rep.

    As you see basically what you really CAN or SHOULD do at 120 at the moment is:
    - WQs (rep, gear, AP),
    - dungeons (gear, AP) Why are mythic dungeons still weekly locked? So we don't have too much to do I bet,
    - professions,
    - pvp,

    Island Expeditions are the worst way to farm AP after you get the weekly bonus. It's quicker to do WQ and farm rares btw. So much for "the most efficient way to farm AP", Ion.
    Enough to say after doing all mythic dungeons this week all I'm left with is doing WQs and hc dungeons (even though my chances for upgrades from them are low).
    I SURE AM HAPPY ABOUT TIMEGATING CONTENT TO PUNISH ME FOR PLAYING THE GAME MORE THAN YOUR AVERAGE CASUAL GAMER.

    I still dont understand why every faction rewards cloak at honored. Where is the variety?

    Is this true? I hit friendly and got a quest starting this but it did not level up my artifact, it's still at 12.

    It boosts the actual item level, not the necklace's artifact power level.

    Itemlevel, not Azerite level. Start is itemlevel 280, so it should be 295 now.

    BUT BUT BUT SOME PEOPLE BINGE THE CONTENT AND WILL ALWAYS COMPLAIN THAT THERE IS NOTHING TO DO; LOOK ON THE FORUM AND YOU KNOW WHY THEY INTRODUCE TIMEGATING CONTENT.

    It doesn't matter how quick and how much content they add, there will be always complaints. It is fine like it is, it was always like this at the first weeks of an expansion.

    That totally doesn't sound like MoP at all.
    I guess Horde players can go screw themselves then, because we can't do Stormsong Valley storyline.

    Great to see that every faction gives a cloak at honored . That way you got a different one to wear when the others are in the laundry .

    Which expansion besides legion had more to do? If they had more to do - most players would be punished for playing "only 20hrs" a week. So is this your problem or blizzards that you don't have a job/want to put all of your free time into a game? I myself had days of so I could grind trough the most stuff in week one and then casually play couple hours a day until raids come out. And couple hours a day might not be enough. Shall I blame blizzard for putting too much so I am missing out? Or shall they invest in stuff which wast majority of players won't see at all? Casuals are paying for the game, not 5% of hardcore pvprs/pvers. Deal with that. Enjoy the summer.

    I thought we're supposed to move forwards, not backwards. You know saying "yeah, this expansion is worse than Legion in terms of starting content" is a bad thing, right?

    I don't care if you have better ways of spending times than playing video games. I care that I'm being timegated from the content. 40 hours of content is 40 hours of content even if you spread it across a month. Blizzard isn't fooling anyone. Why do you care if I blow my load over a week?

    "If they had more to do - most players would be punished for playing only "20hrs" a week."
    WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? Who was ever punished in this game for having too much to do? I mean... split raids perhaps, but that's another topic with a completely different problem at its roots. So you (a hypothetical person) didn't make it to 120 in a week and you missed out a week of warfronts or mythic+ runs.
    SO.WHAT?

    You know why timegates exist in WoW? Let me tell you.

    There are people who play an hour a day and they would "feel" bad or left behind. But because they're paying customers as well we can't have inequality of outcome in a video game, so let's put a bar that doesn't let anyone through until mr. casual player has enough time to catch up, so when the bar is removed everyone starts to nibble at the new content at the same time - both mr. Iplayalot and mr. Iplaylittle.
    You know why that sucks? Because it's not rewarding to anyone, and even better - it's punishing people who have to wait at the bar for weeks to get to play the content promised on the box of the game. Remember vanilla, TBC and wrath? You know, when timegating and LFR wasn't a thing, nobody cared how much/little you play and the game was at the height of popularity? These were the good days.
