Absolutely no need to rush this, as only lvl75 really matters
So , they treat 8.3 as an alpha Shadowlands as expected.
I don't regret grinding those paragon boxes and dropping the game until patch day now, hooray for grinding early like it's my job to play this game!
So no more extra gold (2k for roll, Island, emmisary box, and 5k for 200% Island Quest) from max HoA lvl?
Wohoo! my alts will finally be above level 60!
I haven't even bothered with AP. This is all no-sensical to me.
I pre-loaded my AP work and maxed 16 boxes. Seems like a good strat is to go ahead and turn in 8 of them week 1 and hold the other 8 for the following week while rebuilding my AP to gain the AK benefit.
Awesome post, thank you! This knowledge will allow us to be a lot more efficient, and have more fun, by providing more time for other things in the game. I am so glad blizzard set up this catch up mechanic so that we (I) don't feel the need to grind every world quest daily that provides azurite rewards.
All I need is account bound essences...
You may think it is stupid, but it is convenient to get gold from the WQ and missions. Endlessly grinding AP with diminishing returns is sort of meh; whereas gold has numerous great uses.
