    What should I be doing right now?

    What should I do on prepatch day?
    1. Determine what the trial cap is. Are you sub off and leveling? Check xpoff, someone will have more info.
    2. Use your Black Empire Gear at cap (whatever that ends up being).
    3. Go to Shatt and buy all the gear you can use https://www.wowhead.com/npc=18525/geras. There will be a portal available in the portal room for 10s.
    4. Learn Wrath and BfA Engineering (might be hotfixed).
    5. Unlock your artifact wep quest (do not put in relic gems yet!)
    6. Enchant your artifact wep (needs to be applied while the ilvl is low).
    7. If Legion Dungeon gear is still ilvl 44, run those until you have a full set.
    8. If not, run BC dungeons to get socket gear. Honestly, you can solo.
    9. Socket BC gear.
    10. Socket relic wep.
    11. Train your new Engineering/professions.
    12. Work to unlock Allied Races.

    Should I sub now/later?
    • If you want a DH you need to sub AFTER you get out of the zone. You have no way to lock your xp at 10 and will pass the vet level very quickly. That's really the only requirement around this. Make your DH, get out of zone, sub, lock your xp, unlock before you sub expires, etc.
    • When you do sub, make sure you park your toon by the xp eliminator guy. Some people are "1" xp from 11 on PTR, just discovering a new area can ding you.

    What is prepatch day?
    It's really the start of SL for twinks; level squish happens, new zones unlock, etc. 50's just can't do the SL content yet.​

    When is prepatch day?
    9/15
    9/22
    One of those most likely.​


    Hopefully this helps keep track of it all, let me know what I'm missing!

    Parachute cloak will likely remain BIS for agi toons, plus the on use. But like helms, will need to be made before prepatch.

    For whatever reason if Shatt gear doesn’t make it live, the wod intro quest rewards offer decent blues with seemingly 1-2 more secondaries than current BG rare pieces. I’ll post a screenshot when I can

    Great information, gems/socket gear seems very interesting for low level twinks. Hopefully they don’t change it.

    I’m glad Northrend Engineering is available aswell, it got fixed real quick when they launched BFA.

    Any idea how many sockets total for TBC vendor gear? (So I can spread out MoH amongst my twinks)

    I feel like the 29th is way more likely than the 15th tbh

    10s not able to use glyphs :(

    hunter and holy priest S tier from what I’ve seen. Healing specs still out dps their dps counterparts.

    Feral Druid looks promising based on high mastery scaling for the spec. But I don’t see it outdpsing a resto Druid playing cat :(

    Tbh I can’t really hit enough people in duels to tell.

    nope: level 25 requirement

    WoWScrnShot_090420_090223.jpg

    don't know what's the best, but i do know that level 10 mages will be in a disadvantage in SL.

    can't access the mage order hall once you start on your artifact quest, can't access the teleport ability, and can only have one artifact per character.

    Half of them are busted, test results right now would most likely be unreliable.

    Well that sucks, esp if we need to enchant artifact weapons early on

    You should beable to buy weapons from class hall vendor that are very close, use them until the dust settles and we get concrete info on enchants imo.

    As far as I know, there will be no way to replace the enchants once you socket the relics past the ilvl restriction.

    Idk if I would wait too long to upgrade artifact tbh - especially if the ilv 44 relics get fixxed.
