    Preppin for the Free Weekend

    So I'm thinking of hitting up the Free WoW weekend. I haven't played since pre-WoD.

    I powerleveled through MoP through archaeology and Troll Warbringer farming while in dungeon queues. Got my best leveling gear that way, and I hit rep max pretty quick. After I got my levels I went back and did the quests to cap off and rep and gain a bit of money. I'm planning to do something similar here.

    My characters are level 90, pre-WoD, and I'm looking to bump em up to 110 as quick as possible. I don't have BFA and I have to catchup through Legion anyways. Since not having WoD (back in the day) capped my characters EXP, my garrison followers are higher level than my toons!

    I heard things like people leveling up like crazy over invasions, but I think those are gone now? What's the best way to level up alongside questing?

    Also are there any good tips for rep grinding through Legion catchup mechanics or anything like that.

    When you level through Legion content, you can use the Legion invasions (that take place in the Broken Isle zones) to power level. It's roughly an entire level per invasion or so, but the invasions only happen every 6 or 9 hours or something like that, so you'll only usually see 1 or 2 up per day.

    u skipped legion, one of best exp, and want to play bfa, the 2nd worst exp ?
    the free weekend is only 3 days, u won't hit max, in fact i'm not even sure u'll see BFA content in first place, legion content is great but i seriously doubt u'll hit 110 by 3 days from 90
    U are going first time WoD, u'll walk all WoD, u'll also walk all legion
    my advice set better realistic goals, don't aim for 120

    No Legion rep catch up mechanisms if you are a long gone player. Alts could catch up with BoA rep tokens.

    Legion invasions are every 12 hrs and last 6 hrs. Might be a tad harder to do them now that they are old content and less ppl are there to help. Was pretty nice to basically quickly find groups with WQ addons killing the Elites and other players clearing some mobs in other areas.

    So atm I think questing is your best bet...but without the pathfinder achievement for Legion, you will also be doing it on foot

    I don't have BFA and I'm not hitting BFA max. Prolly best that you not delete the parts of the OP where I stated my goals.

    I'm aiming for 110, which I think is possible in 3 days with the right prep work. But again, WoW's changed a lot since I last played, so I'm not sure how the catchup mechanics or powerleveling works. For all I know they could have stomped that all out and gated the hell out of it like they seemed to start at WoD with the garrisons thing.

    Isn't the BfA part only Lordaeron and the intro quests? You are better off just playing through Legion stuff normally rather than trying to rush to 110.

    90-110 is the fastest 20 levels in the game aside from those in the 1-60 bracket. I'd even say it's faster than 40-60.

    You could do most of it in a single day with WoD and maybe a legion zone being bumped off. Legion Invasions are still around and still lucrative.

    Upgrade your heirlooms if you've the money. They were all reduced in price recently.

    You didn't miss much with WoD and Legion. So good call to remain unsubbed since MoP.

    If you're hoping to unlock allied races then you're out of luck. 3 days isn't long enough.

    For the free weekend I was thinking of farming raids for mounts and things. I can save the lockout with a lvl100 on a second account I'd never bother subbing again, and run through plenty of my main account. How are lockouts working now? From memory this won't work for mythic, but how about heroic lockouts nowadays?

    40 levels is *easily* doable in 3 days, even without wod/legion pathfinder. Especially with heirlooms.

    Powerleveling is still doable, the person carrying you just can't be above the level cap for the content you're working through. So like if you're working on the legion bracket, they cant be over 110.

    If I'm remembering correctly 90-100 can be done solely with WoD treasures and bonus areas, which takes a couple hours tops. It'll be a bit slower for you since you won't be able to fly. Turn on Warmode for this as well, it's doubtful you'll find any enemies to fight.
    Shut your goddamn mouth, Gene!

    so ur goal is to get to 110 and enjoy legion ? well lvling in WoD now scale with ur lvl (do u know scaling) so u can lvl in any zone, and WoD best feature is questing, ignore any investment in garrison since it now give some trash not worth the invest at all
    as for legion i don't know how will the system work now that artifacts are dead, but lvl as normal, and legion is far better to lvl without flying
    but why did u ask about reputation ? why would u need it for lvling?

    i doubt he has heirlooms higher than lvl 90, or the gold to buy it

    Saw the free weekend in the bnet launcher and thought that I wouldn't have mind to play around with a Zandalari or Kultiran, but it's behind a massive timegate. Too bad. Just waiting for classic at this point.

    Role a tank and spam dungeons. Not having pathfinder really screws you over in terms of questing and doing treasure hunting.

    You are doing tops two or three invasions so wait until one is up before selecting a zone for questing. Also remeber you can your weapon from legion at lvl 98, it is insanely good at that level range.

    Alternatively if you can and have the gold, in wod there is a potion that gives 300% xp, so do a bunch of quests, stack them, drink the potion and then claim those quests.
    Your problem is that you’re more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.

    You can make a 110 trial and get them unlocked instantly this weekend because ability to make 110 trials are included in this deal.
