Before BfA release 

  1. Get one stack of flasks, three stacks of food,  empty your bags, head to Stormwind and Orgrimmar.
  2. Get on Discord for voice chat with me!
  3. Decide in which order to level your characters, entirely based on enjoyment, not on gold making.

  8. #TimeIsMoneyFriend
  9. Get your water, snacks and stretches in.  Walk to the kitchen and back. Jog up and down the stairs twice. Blow a kiss to yourself in the mirror you sexy goldmaker you.


Fifth Hour in BfA

  1. It’s time to start concentrating.
  2. Do you want to level your main up to 120 asap?  It’s time to focus on that.
  3. Do you want to level your profession up fast?  Focus on crafting and gathering.
  4. Do you want to enjoy the storyline and new world? Explore the main cities and look for the places to catch the rare 50g fish.
  5. Want to do the Heroes’ Welcome?  Head to the major cities and start secretly donating bags to new players.


Sixth Hour in BfA

  1. You deserve a really big break around about now, so pause your game and leave the room, go fix yourself up a proper meal.
  2. Afterwards, head to the Auction House and mailbox and start assessing your undercut auctions, your sales, and adjust your numbers according to the feedback.
  3. This is when the real Battle for Azeroth Gold begins in earnest.

    I love this list. I personally don’t play on the PTR or in Betas, and while I’ll take new information re: gold making, profession changes, spell changes, etc., I do my best to avoid lore spoilers and most screenshots because i like the newness, surprise, and general eye candy that comes with an expansion release. For that reason, I don’t usually have a ‘master game plan’ because I’m not 100% clear on what is where or how every last thing works. Consequently, I usually miss the boat on something. There are in-depth guides galore though if I want to drown in minutia, and Dugi or Zygor for questing. Give me a few bullet points to help me make it through the first night, pat me on the head, and send me on my way. Thumbs up.
