Things To Do Before The Visions of N’Zoth Patch Release

Rise of Azshara has been live for months and players have visited the Eternal Palace, fought through the dangerous depths and defeated the powerful ranks that lie within, finally reaching The Last Prison where they faced Queen Azshara herself.

Some have visited the dungeons located throughout Zandalar and Kul’Tiras, trying their best to race through while dealing with dangerous emissaries of Azshara.

And others have spent their time in the proving grounds, fighting other players of the opposing faction for the glory in 2v2, 3v3 arenas or 15v15 battlegrounds.

However, the 8.3 patch release date is right around the corner and while sticking to the same activities is fun, some often wonder if they could be doing else to set themselves up for the patch release.

In today’s article, we’re listing some good options for players who want to be as prepared as possible for Visions of N’Zoth.

Reputation Grinding

For the past expansions, Blizzard has decided to not let players fly in the main zones until they have unlocked an achievement called Pathfinder. This achievement is often split in two, one part releasing alongside the expansion and the other released in a later patch and Battle for Azeroth was no exception.

Although Pathfinder Pt. 2 released in Rise of Azshara some players have decided to stick to other activities they find more alluring than farming reputations with some factions in exchange of a flying mount and the ability to fly.

Well, in Visions of N’zoth the new allied races, the Vulpera and the Mechagnomes, will be released. To be able to use them, players will require to have Exalted reputation with the Voldunai for Horde and with Rustbolt Resistance for Alliance.

We believe this reputation requirement could incite players to farm up their reputation and, while they’re at it, unlock their Pathfinder achievement.


Tailoring, Blacksmithing, Mining, Skinning, all professions have proven to be very useful in the early days of every release we’ve seen so far. This is because Blizzard has included craftable high item level gear that requires players to max their profession before being able to access the recipe.

If you’re playing a leather armour class, you might want to max leatherworking, and the same goes to Blacksmithing for plate armour users and Tailoring for the cloth armour users.

This can give you an advantage over unprepared players that don’t have access to these pieces of gear. Why wait for an item to drop when you can make it yourself?

Alt Leveling

Some players feel tired of playing the same class for endgame content, and that’s fair. However, the Wow 15th Anniversary event has been going on for a while already, and it is confirmed to keep going until January the 17th.

The Wow 15th Anniversary Event allows players to access a 15% exp bonus that will surely help them get any character ready at a very fast pace. This could represent an opportunity for someone who’s looking to try out a new class in the upcoming patch.

We believe there isn’t a “right way” to play World of Warcraft and not everyone enjoys doing things the same way others do it, but sometimes we get distracted trying to do the same things over and over and forget there’s a world of opportunities to explore.

We hope this article helped you find out what you want to do before the patch release, so you are prepared to face N’Zoth’s madness and save Azeroth alongside your faction!
