I really enjoyed the warfronts I did when they went live. I did about 3 I think, 1 for the main piece of loot and a couple more times with others just for fun. I did get nice pieces of gear upon completion but none of them were upgrades for me due to raids and mythics etc. It would be a great gearing option though.
The first one was all wtf are we supposed to do, mainly running around just trying to kill things, but the following ones had a little more focus on my part. However I got gradually worse with each one and collected less and less items to hand in and spent more time farther afield killing mobs.
I even somehow managed to capture a flag/location 🙂 Go me!
I can’t wait to get back into these because I love them at the moment. Mix this in with expeditions and I am finding I have things to do constantly. In fact, I feel like there is too much to do now. I simply don’t have the time to do it all!! I think Blizz went the other way on keeping us busy, but my god I love it.
I also did a few more expeditions but we failed on a heroic one again 🙁 So depressing, we were running around like mad people trying to locate azerite and just couldn’t find any! It was so frustrating. As you can see we were not even close to completing it.
We did manage to complete one on heroic though, so it isn’t all bad. I still find these loads of fun.
I have seen a few people around the traps saying they only do these is mythic!! HOW?!?!?! I am too scared to even contemplate mythic until we can nail heroic versions!! Just another thing I wish I had more free time for.
OMG! I hadn’t thought they would be as much fun. I think it depends on who you do them with though, I could see these being horrible with PUGS.
Our first one was Whispering Reef and Pracey was trying to explain everything to us whilst ensuring we didn’t fail. We did cream the alliance AI in that one.
The next one was The Rotting Mire and this was a very close call. The numbers don’t reflect it, but at one point the alliance were about 600 infront of us because we couldn’t find anything to kill/collect, until we happened upon three Surok camps with so many fat bags of Azerite we claimed the victory.
The next was the Verdant Wilds. Again we had loads of space and spent a fair amount of time killing the alliance which I think helped to our victory. We did get better as we went along.
I did keep running off to mine and collect things whilst Moryty and Pracey killed mobs which was not entirely helpful (I would be that bad PUG). I was so easily distracted by the shinies! We had a few really close matches which I thought we would definitely lose but we found stashes of azerite just at the right times.
The Whispering reef had our closest match but we still managed to come out on top!
According to conversations you should do the 7 per week you need to cap the azerite, however you don’t really need to do more. They are meant to be a side to the main quests/stories and give you something different to do.
We did do all 7 though and had a good laugh at the same time. I would like to see these scale with group size so you can have 3-6 people running around and the mobs just have more HP or require more effort.
I really enjoyed them and I doubt I would ever actually do a PVP version, the AI was enough for me, but I think I would be happy doing more than 7 a week if people needed a third wheel.
