Hello. Following a Wowhead guide, here is few tricks to do in Pre-Patch.
Your other characters can work on a care package kit for your Demon Hunter. Here are some items they can mail over:
- Bags: Tailors can make several large bags that are BoE— Hexweave Bag, Royal Satchel, and Illusionary Bag.
- Cooking materials: The best way to power level cooking is to learn the recipes from Sungshin Ironpaw and then loot The Joy of Draenor Cooking for Grilled Saberfish and Saberfish Broth. Most of the 1-600 reagents are sold by Sungshin Ironpaw but you should stock up on Golden Carp for Toasted Fish Jerky/ Green Curry Fish and Crescent Saberfish Flesh for Grilled Saberfish.
- Profession materials: Leveling professions in the pre-patch still requires Draenor materials, so stock up on herbs, Sumptuous Fur, Felblight, True Iron Ore, and Savage Blood. You can also speed fishing along with Nat’s Fishing Journal and Nat’s Draenic Fishing Journal. That said, you do not need to have a high skill level in order to unlock and learn Draenor recipes.
- Mark of Honor: These PvP tokens are BoA and can be turned in for ilvl 710 pieces of gear.
- Reputation items: This is more for fun, but you can spend Timewarped Badges on BoA commendations which grant 500 reputation with an old-world faction.
- Enchants and Consumables: Save up some enchanting scrolls, Draenor gems, bandages, and flasks for any group content your Demon Hunter does.
Pre Patch Gearing
When you leave the starting zone, you will be wearing a full set of 680-690 gear. This will be good enough to get you into Hellfire Citadel LFR. The Demon Hunter Artifact Weapon in Legion will be a Warglaive, but Demon Hunters can equip other types of weapons (1H axes, swords, fists), which come in handy for the pre patch. Keep this in mind when purchasing Mark of Honor weapons or seeing what Hellfire Citadel bosses have useful loot. You can get your Demon Hunter a full set of ilvl 710 armor through Mark of Honor via the vendors Holly McTilla and Malukah Lightsong. These tokens are from PvP and are Bind on Account, so you can grind out the tokens in advance on a different character, and then just mail them over.
- 1 Mark of Honor for belt, bracers, cloaks
- 2 Mark of Honor for shoulders, gloves, boots
- 3 Mark of Honor for helms, chests, pants
- 5 Mark of Honor for weapons
