If a ARNG specialist already has WLC/BLC, does this soldier promote before the soldiers on the TPL? Or is having WLC/BLC independent from the promotion list? I ask because I have received mixed answers from different NCOs. I thank you all in advance.

For ARNG, soldiers will first be selected for promotion off the EPS list. That soldier will be reassigned to that position and will get a promotion order after they complete their NCOES. Because that position is filled when the next person on the EPS list is selected (whether they can promote right away or not), a soldier that has completed BLC but is lower on the list can not be selected for promotion first because they have to fill an E-5 slot to be eligible for a promotion order (which are filled with people higher on the EPS list but may not have BLC).
