BFA is enjoyable, the zones are all pretty at least on Kul Tiras. A nice change from Legion at least. The Azerite gear is a decent enough mechanic even if it is sort of like reforging of old.

 

Got a late start and just finished my first zone, Drustvar, but what a zone it was. Witches' covens, giant pig monsters, assassinations at weddings, little girls singing creepy songs about their villages being massacred... y'know, the good stuff.

I thought about picking it up and giving WoW a try for umpteenth time but I read you don't have access to the new races without grinding reputation. Is that right or am I missing something?

That is correct, Allied Races are reputation rewards. It gets better, the majority available right now are gated behind the last expansion's reputations. If that's a dealbreaker, I suggest steering well clear.

Currently available from last expansion's content: Nightborne, Highmountain Tauren, Lightforged Draenei, Void Elf
Currently available from new content: Dark Iron Dwarf, Mag'har Orc
Announced, listed on the official website but actually not even available: Zandalari Troll, Kul'Tiran Human

I've bought the last couple expansions but only played for a few days before dropping it each time so I'd be starting fresh. I wanted to play a void elf.

Hopefully there's a free trial of BfA eventually. Don't have the time to justify the subscription fee lately, let alone the cost of the expansion. It also sounds like my old guild won't have the numbers to form a viable raid, 2007-2018, end of an era.

Wizards of Legend. I love it on the Switch even though it lags occasionally.

If you've got a character close to max level anywhere (since you bought the previous expansions, I assume you had boosts) you could probably knock the rep out in three weeks, assuming you have time. But that doesn't sound like fun at all. I unlocked the allied races because it was content I'd done already anyway, but I think for new players Blizzard seriously dropped the ball with their allied race unlock requirements. Races are a huge draw and telling new players "no, you can't be them" is a massive turnoff.

I missed that little girl and the tea party, I guess I should have followed the road.  I started with Drustvar too, they did a good job having each zone have a consistent story.  Working my way to finish the Alliance story line, had missed a fun quest chain in Stormsong where you get to burn orcs alive, which is always fun.  Easy to do with a healer as the dungeon queue's are nice and short, even if I have to deal with idiots and self centered scumbag DPS untermensch.

Lots of fun and pretty funny, too. I think I'm nearing the end of the main game and will have the DLC to start afterwards.
