If I’m being really honest, I’m having a harder time with the patch 8.2 content than I anticipated. Sure, I knew there’d be a gear gap if I tried to skip over Nazjatar and Mechagon entirely, but I didn’t expect it to feel quite so bad doing the next logical content step from where I left off. For the time being, I’m going to blame it on my severely underleveled Heart of Azeroth, because otherwise, it means I just forgot how to play, and I’m not quite ready to admit to that just yet.
Anyway, Impressive Influence is completely amazing for what I’m trying to get done, even if I spend way too much time lost and die a lot.
When I logged in on Tuesday, my Battle for Azeroth reps looked like this. Not even halfway through neutral with Waveblade Ankoan, and no Rustbolt Resistance to be seen.
But 24 hours later, it looked like this – very nearly Honored with Waveblade Ankoan, and I managed to start on Mechagon and get almost to Friendly without a single daily or world quest done.
Overall, I’m pleased with the rate at which I’m progressing (even if I did manage to complete an emissary in there so most days won’t look nearly that good). Completing this before the end of the buff is more than reasonable, and may even leave me with some time left over on my token to pursue something else. Now I just need to figure out what something else might be.
