    More likely 31st of May or the week after. 9.2.5 releasing is not tied to the start of season 4. Season 4 will start at a later date.

    Well - live is a little bit of an 'overstatement' ... there is literally no new content for me in it, no new gear, nothing.

    Due to COVID-19, Germany is running out of sausages and cheese.
    The government considers this to be the Wurst Käse scenario

    You can get fated gear from LFR that is better than Cypher gear currently.

    They're also implementing Cypher weapons.

    And you can complete the quest for tokens that can be traded in for normal ilvl weapons and trinkets of your choice on LFR difficulty.

    LFR doesn't provide any gear upgrades for my main and doing LFR just isn't feasible in reality, doing all wings of an LFR is a 6-7 hour commitment (of no new content).

    Fated raids don't start til Season 4, which is like 3+ months from now.

    What gear does your main have currently? If you're not raiding, doing rated pvp or m+, the best you can get is 252 armor, 246 weapons and 242-246 trinkets, + whatever you can get from, say, timewalking cache etc..

    If you have better gear from either of those activities, you'll be able to obtain gear at a higher ilvl from those same activities in season 4. If not and you're currently using ~252 gear, you'll be able to get 265 from LFR in season 4 and 278 weapons/trinkets as deterministic rewards from vendors.

    iLvl 270 or so, I can't get into a raid group so I can't raid and the M+ have dried up totally in the last few months - so my only remaining option is solo content.

    Well, you're saying that you can't do m+ because it has dried up over the last few months, but 9.2.5 may also solve that problem for you. From my recollection you play primarily or exclusively as Alliance, but 9.2.5 introduces cross faction grouping which will significantly expand the pool, especially so for Alliance players.

    Now, you may choose not to play with Horde players after 9.2.5 and that's your prerogative, but you'd basically just be barring yourself from engaging with your activity of choice.

    The issue is the ratios ... adding extras to the pool doesn't shift the ratios, basically the friends list is permanently off line now and there just isn't enough dps spots to even get an application in.

    Even had a group with tank and 3 dps wait 2 hours for a healer with no luck.

    All I can remember is Crossfaction dungeons, the Blood Elf and Dark Iron heritage quests, and Fated raids with Season 4 (Whenever that may be).

    "Hero", is what they've all been saying. This world, it isn't worth the saving."

    Thanks, I didn't know about the heritage quests, that means there will be new armor and achievements right? Nice if so.

    Personally really excited for the Blood Elf Paladin stuff. Having a red/black themed set for blood knights exclusively feels nice.
