if i haven't shaved for a couple of days i.e. monday morning, it's a 3 pass: 1WTG, 1ATG, 1XTG.

otherwise it's usually 2 passes: 1WTG, 1ATG.

i used to only do 3 passes, but my skin has thanked me for shifting to one less pass when shaving on consecutive days.
Remember: this is all just wasted time and lives talking nonsense to strangers about pieces of metal, hair and chemical compounds.

I could have sworn I replied to this post last year... at any rate,
my pass count is now at around 1.5. WTG all over followed by
XTG sideburns, moustache, and chin. Diminishing returns on the
rest of the face, and my neck is another story altogether.
