    For random dungeons, how many levels per run are we talking about? (Or, worst case, runs per level?)

    You were (mostly) granted this on the ISBoxer Discord (no camera), but for everyone else, here you go (with terrible audio quality).

    For me, everything up to the final boss of Arcatraz was quite terrible, so nothing's changed there, and Auchindoun has the very difficult beholder boss that can be a show-stopper (unless it's been nerfed, I don't know). On the other hand, Cata dungeons can go [redacted] right in their [redacted] for the [redacted] [redacted] that they are. Finally, I don't think I've multiboxed all of the MoP dungeons, but I've probably done most, while leveling. Right now, they can definitely pose some challenge to those who aren't familiar with them, so we'll have to see how the end up after the squish in SL.

    I can dig it, and I hope it stays.

I believe that is their response to this, because, yes, otherwise you could queue and no one else wants to do Cata. I suspect people will still have their favorite timeline and other timelines will get ignored quickly.
    Okay - I figured that something had to be put in place for the less desirable/populated timelines, where the available dungeons are likely going to be somewhat dormant/avoided.
    Do not send me a PM if what you want to talk about isn't absolutely private.
    Ask your questions on the forum where others can also benefit from the information.

    Regarding the DK starting zone, are you guys not using the daggers to poke the truth from officers?
    I did a run a few months ago and either I was extremely lucky or officers are the way to do the quest, as each officer gave me the information first try. Would make sense to me because officers would have more information!

    Love DK starting area, including the daggers. Not sure I need more DKs though.

    I'm skeptical of the level collapse. Does it seem like it's going to work out, in general? I mean, certain items got overlooked in the item level crushes. Or at least one item, the Lucky Rockets(?) from Lunar Festival haven't been worthwhile in years. Just thinking there have to be some unforeseen effects of a player level crush.

    Hmm. Can you still get the armor set for leveling an Allied Race without a boost token?

    Doing my best to get motivated for the WoW Headless Horseman mount hunt of 2013... so far failing. and now in 2018, let's see about those HH mounts! [Edit: Actually got an HH mount in 2018... on separate account 6. One to go! In 2019, my last BNet accout, the main one, got the HH mount. End of an era.]

    I multibox because I have no time, have a life, have a job and[/or] money and have little patience for drama and temper tantrums. -- heffner

    maybe it's buffed now, a month ago i did a group of DK's and it took 45minutes to get all 5 done. I was fuming.

    heritage armor will work the same, except the levels required are squished from something like level 8-60 instead of 20-120.

    It seems you cannot get to level 60 just by questing anymore. But have to run other content, as like dungeons or anything else that gives XP.

    This is what he found:

    1.) It is a linear leveling expansion. Order is Bastion, Maldraxxus, Aredenweald and Revendreth in this order. Without any option.
    2.) Bastion brings you up to level 54, being the most lucrative region. Just playing the campaign will bring you to level 54, at which point you can go to maldraxxus.
    3.) Maldraxxus does only offer enough content for 2 levels, from 54 to 55. The final quest in maldraxxus, tho, starts at level 56, and you cannot progress anywhere before you hit it. Preach suggests this should be done by grinding.
    4.) Ardenweald will allow you to quest up to level 56. It is a very linear experience with some few more opportunitues to do some side quests, which are on the linear story questchain path. Once you reached level 56, you can go to revendreth.
    5.) Revendreath has a first quest hub you have to play, while it is easy forgotten if you focus on the story quest only. You should do that first quest hub, otherwise you wont have a lot of side quests in the whole leveling experience in revendreth. The final quest will be at level 60, while the questing content brings you up to level 58. Means, you need to grind dungeons or mobs to get to endgame and to the final quest. Endgame will not be unlocked until you did this final quest, no matter what level you are. You need to quest through the zones to get there.

    Even with warmode on.. i also got to maldraxis at 54. I hate grinding mobs to level. Im wondering how fast it is to level via WQs on your alts if you choose to skip the story! I have a feeling, skipping the story is not a good idea.

    Wouldn't party sync work at all?

    So interesting not sure if you can avoid this, 3 characters hit level 50 (out questing in Time Walking new feature) just now and you get 60 seconds before a forced port out of Time Walking....
    Then my 4th a few minutes later and the catch up character was left alone.

    Any way around this?
