My Pre-BfA To-do List
It was recently announced that World of Warcraft’s next expansion, Battle for Azeroth, will be releasing on August 14. We knew it was coming eventually, but now all the things I want to get done before it comes out feel more real. I mean, I know it’s not real, but, like, it’s real. So here is a list of things I want to get done before Battle for Azeroth comes out, along with some deadlines of things that you should get done if you ever plan on doing them. I hope I can provide some inspiration for your very own pre-BfA bucket list. Let me know what things you guys are wanting to wrap up.
WoWhead also did an excellent guide about things to do before BfA.
1. Kill Heroic Argus
My raid group has stalled somewhat, and I am no longer raiding with them, though I am still in the guild. Though I love 99% of the people, a snowball of factors has made me rethink my position on the team. So, I still need to kill Heroic Argus for the achievement! I definitely have an appropriate ilevel so I won’t be too much of a carry. There are great resources like Friendship Birb and Perky Pugs for people seeking the achievement and accompanying mount. The in-game group finder is a bit hit-or-miss, but it’s possible to get lucky.
2. Milk the FUCK out of gold missions
Gold missions are quite lucrative if you can have two or three going at once, especially when you can resend your minions through the app without even getting on your computer. If you have a few alts who are getting them, you can easily make 50k+ a week.
3. Have a go at Brawler’s Guild
I haven’t done anything with Brawler’s Guild since the expansion it came out (Pandaria?), so maybe during the lull I’ll give that a shot and see what happens. It hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it’s possible that currnet achievements will be moved to the Legacy tab and new ones will be added with BfA.
4. Farm Artifact Appearances
I’m still missing quite a few artifact appearances, so I may want to go back and get them. Once BfA comes out, the Mage Tower appearance and Mythic +15 appearance will be unobtainable, so I want to take a whack at those. I haven’t been much interested in either of those things during Legion. Let’s face it, I’m not going to want to come back to the Broken Isles to do old content, so may as well do it now.
5. Glory Achievements
Legion, Tomb, Argus, will all still be obtainable in BfA, but since it will be old, few people are likely to want to come back to farm them. I’d like to get them done so I can have the mounts. Same goes for Dungeon. I also have quite a few old ones I still need to get.
6. Farm Mounts and Pets
I’ll still be doing my weekly/daily mount circuit trying to farm up those pesky rare drops. Get a customized mount circuit at TelsaWoW!
7. Finish Pet Battle Achievments
I did very little pet battling during the meat of Legion, so I’m slowly going back and getting all those achievements, and writing about them of course. There are also some older ones that I want to go back and get, like the one with the plushie.
8. Get all my alts to 110 and professions leveled
I’d like to catch up all my alts and get them to 110 and get their professions up. It’s nice to be able to make your own gems and enchants.
9. Unload all old materials
If you’re a hoarder like me, get your bags and bank cleared out before everything in them becomes worthless.
