Just a tip to all those, like myself, who will be rolling fresh Zandalari Troll alts; based on my time on the PTR lately. I’ve written a few tips to ease the leveling experience!
When you first zone in, you’ll appear at the Great Seal in Zuldazar. You’ll immediately see a portal heading to Orgrimmar, but don’t take that portal right away! Go pick your Loa first!!
One of the arguably best racials in the game is the Zandalari Troll racial: Embrace of the Loa.
Picking your loa will grant you a buff. To change your loa you need to visit the shrine in Zuldazar. The cool down is 5 days so during your leveling time, make sure you pick the loa that best fits your needs.
Wowhead has a great article describing each, along with the location of each shrine:
For a rough summary, here is what each Loa does:
Akunda - healer buff - chance to get an extra healing amt.
Bwonsamdi - shadow dmg proc and heals you for the damage.
Gonk - movement speed boost
Kimbul - DOT buff - bleed damage that can stack up to 3 times
Krag’wa - tanking buff - proc to increase health and armor
Pa’ku - burst buff - boost to crit
Also, don’t forget you can also purchase experience bonus potions with 5 Honorbound Service Medals or 7th Legion Service Medals on your main:
These are Bind on Account so you can purchase these on your main(s) and mail them to your new Zandalari Troll. These are likely much cheaper than the Elixir of the Rapid Mind as many of you will have better access to service medals than the thousands of gold the former potions will be selling for on the auction. Be sure to run a few Incursions before patch day and you can stockpile up on some of these handy boosts! The vendors are right near the Warfront command tables.
Those are the two big reminders I’ll be keeping in mind this coming patch day. Good luck to all our new Zandalari Trolls AND Kul Tiran humans!!
