We are a week away from the Battle for Azeroth worldwide launch. Our magnificent raid team completed what we set out to do (Ahead of the Curve and Violet Spellwing mounts for all raid members). We still had several weeks between the last AOTC run and the BfA launch. Kudos to the team leadership for finding things to do to keep us all hanging out over the last several weeks. This is the most fun I have had in WoW since Wrath of the Lich King. Aside from the group events, I set out to complete a list of toon-specific goals to complete before the expansion. There are less than 8 days left, how are my Battle for Azeroth pre-expansion goals looking?

Character Goals Progress Update

Quite a while ago I posted a little chart about the goals I made for my alts before Battle for Azeroth drops. At the time of that post I still had 3 alts that had not reach level 110. Of those three, two of them are now at level 110 (the remaining Alliance warlock may get the free 110 boost because I don’t think I am going to try to hit 110 over the next week). Be that as it may, that does mean that I do have a level 110 of every class (including a level 110 Horde character). So having all classes/alts at level 110 before launch … check.

Now the more daunting task is completing the Order Hall, Class Mount and at least one hidden appearance for each of those classes. So here is an updated chart:

Class Order Hall Hidden Appearance Class Mount
Demon Hunter
Death Knight

As you can see I have made quite a bit of progress, unfortunately I am not finished yet. I am working on the hidden appearance quest for the warlock. The hidden appearance for the warrior requires an exalted reputation with Valarjar before the pieces drop, so, in essence I am working on that as well. The important item of note is that I FINALLY got the hidden appearance to drop for my shadow priest! I hate being at the whim of the RNG, which is why I worry about the Rogue and Warrior hidden appearances. I think I will be able to finish the Order Hall and Class mount quests for the Monk and Warrior, however I don’t know about completing the remaining hidden appearances.

Speaking of Artifact Appearances

Aside from trying to get the hidden appearances, another thing I set out to accomplish was working on a couple challenge appearances. I particularly focused on my paladin and shadow priest. Their gear scores gave me the better advantage. The protection challenge appearance is no joke, just as all the posts said. It is difficult but, in all honesty, it was fun. So I managed to complete the protection and retribution paladin challenge appearance and the shadow priest appearance. Here are some screenshots:
