Am I missing something ?

By the end of this month I am going to purchase a new groupset ( ultegra ) for a major upgrade . The only tools I need are a set of cable cutters/crimpers and probably a
torque wrench (just because). The wrenching , routing and adjusting seem pretty cut &
dry , the trickiest part may be FD height and alignment (thank Jesus for reading glasses
for these old eyes) and possibly wrapping the bars , so is it really that simple or is there something I'm overlooking .
