It is assumed that your goal is to get to a reasonable entry level for Nighthold Normal and that you have a fresh 110 character with minimal progress in World of Warcraft. Reasonable entry level here means 860+ average item level equipped (in-game recommended item level for NH Normal according to Group Finder), and Artifact Level 35 (one point into your paragon trait).
Catching up may be or maybe not depend
where you left off and how long you have been away. You will focus on three
(1) Getting to Artifact Knowledge 25
(2) Getting 35 traits in your main spec
(3) Getting geared
Will be straightforward from their
progress and I assume you know what to do.
