For a battlepass owner, what do you think is a better deal? Finish all quests (including weekly we just received) with the +20% extra exp (so more +50 gold before the expansion drops, specifically 3000+2100+2100+1200+1200+1200 exp, or +350 gold) or wait and finish them when the expansion drops (so faster early progression with the new battlepass). It was easy for the last expansion since we knew we were going to obtain full-fledged new quests... but what about now?
Thank you in advance to everyone and have a nice day!
It will depend on how many packs will you buy. If you have enough gold to buy all the pack you want, just wait for the exp to drop and start leveling up the new battlepass, if you need gold, its easy to rush it with the old battlepass.
So I would consider this to options and see what is better for you.
I mean you won't get more than like 7-8k exp by doing all those quests which means that it's like 5 more levels at best or 250g or 2 packs so if 2 packs is worth to you then go ahead. For me the answer is obvious, saving today's and tomorrow's daily (and then doing all 3 on Tuesday) and saving the weeklies is the way to go, 2 extra packs is not worth honestly, I much rather get that strong start cause as you said with that amount of exp you can get immediatly to level like 25 and then if you got the pass (I'm gonna buy it, it's 100% worth it) then you can easily get to like level 30 I'd say.
I have never been into min/maxing of things, far too much effort for me, so I haven't considered gold yield for completing now vs gold on the reward track that you could fast track through in that time period due to the xp from the quests and all that.
I've just decided to split it. I'm playing some BG at the moment because I'm a bit drained of the standard meta. I got the win 5 in BG so I'll do that one because I won't be playing BG for a good while, post expansion. Maybe towards the release of the next mini set at the earliest. But I will be playing a lot of ranked, so I've left the ranked wins because I'll get that one quickly and it will give a boost to the next track. The last weekly one is something like play 50 battle cry, so that will probably be done naturally through BG but if for any reason it doesn't, no worries, I'll finish it after.
Thank you everyone for your inputs! Actually, all quests (3000+2100+2100+1200+1200+1200) are around 11k exp (with +20% battlepass exp). With actual battlepass, would be 11k/1.5k = 7.3, rounding up = 8x50 = 400 gold.
At new expansion, with the new battlepass is +10% exp, so aroung 9k9 exp (10% less wrt now). That would get to lvl26.5 on next battlepass, earning:
3 barrens packs
Random (barrens) epic
Random (barrens) legendary
2 YotP packs
Without accounting for other goodies (golden cards, Mankrik, cardback, etc.). Probably while completing quests will get to lvl27, so +50 gold, 650 total.
Only saving Weeklies/2 Dailies for the new pass so i can get to that 15%xp bonus asap (and eventually hit 20%) i am collecting quests before the new pass for the gold because the new meta is far more interesting to me than the last one was didn't even hit 300 but will for sure for Barrens.
I am going to get maybe 4 wins out of 5 (2500xp) in preparation for Barrens though or atleast a few wins depends on my dailies
