So, I was just posting some auctions and to my surprise, in the top right-hand corner, was a new buff applied, called Winds of Wisdom. I was immediately taken back by this, so I immediately checked what was going on. It’s a buff which does the following; Experience gain increased by 100% (confirmation below) and will be effective between 20th March to 20th April!
Blizzard obviously aware of the current situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) and the need for everyone to start self-isolating has undoubtedly given players of World of Warcraft a little incentive to abide by the current restrictions and alleviate a lot of the free time, by offering this buff. Thankfully at the time of this blog post, there are no restrictions with this buff. I wore full heirlooms + Warmode and the 100% Experience buff and completed a Legion Assault – which may I add is an insane experience gain! I got almost three levels in the space of one assault, please bear in mind I was gathering as well! I haven’t completed a BFA Faction Assault yet as there wasn’t one available, but I’d guess the experience gain from this is also incredible. In fact, @Warcraft on Twitter has just confirmed it!
With the weekend finally upon us, I was eager to get some auctions posted, but this new development has put a hold on that. Due to my previous issues IRL I was unable to fully appreciate the insane experience gains from the recent Alterac Valley battleground event. Given this new buff has no restrictions and can be used in every aspect of gaining experience, I’d think it’s fair to say this could be the best experience buff anyone’s experienced to date.
Now what will be interesting, is when The Darkmoon Faire visits with the carousel buff WHEE! , or interestingly, experience potions ( Elixir of the Rapid Mind & Excess Potion of Accelerated Learning) If these all stack too, then OMG!
Wowhead has recently published a great article, that I’d urge you to read. It has guides on class leveling with everything you need to know, check it out HERE.
To put how crazy this is into perspective, as of yesterday afternoon the EU WoWToken was at 194,195g as of this morning at 07:15 the token is sitting at 231,571g!
Anyway, I’d love to stay and chat further, but I’m going to do some leveling… I hope you’re taking part too.
Cya in Azeroth!
