This pre-patch "event" is sapping all my excitement for SL. IIRC, the Legion invasion pre-patch event was a much more frenetic pace, gear and toys and pets were more easily obtainable, and the event itself was loads more fun. You could hop on for 30-60 minutes and feel like you actually accomplished something if you were trying to catch up an alt.I dunno what Blizz's plan was, but they succeeded in making this Scourge event the opposite of fun. Kill a rare. Tab out for 19 minutes because the event gives you nothing to do in between. Kill another rare. Thus far I've not gotten a single drop besides scourgestones. And the conversion system to farm scourgestones, so you can get Argent Commendations, so you can buy gear, is an insulting time suck. On average I've been getting around 20-30 scourgestones per boss kill, which equates to 3 AC's. It takes 15 AC's to buy a piece, so 5 rares + 80 minutes = 1 piece of gear. The chances of me finding the time to collect all the xmog appearances I'm missing are slim to none, and that's to say nothing of the fact that the 34-slot bag -- which I was hoping to get on all my alts -- seems to have a very low drop rate. Then consider that much of the "catch up" gear isn't really catch-up gear because the chest, helm and shoulder pieces lack Azerite traits, making them more of a downgrade.
I have been out here for over 6hrs now trying to get good gear for my priest and I've had a whole ONE piece of gear drop from the rares. Meanwhile my boyfriends character is getting one drop after another and has pretty much gotten all but TWO pieces. So wtf with this rng bs?
This event literally has me on the verge of quitting the game again. Not only has it been a huge let down...but the fact that I can't even get drops from the rares to gear up anything is really pissing me off.
For me, the most annoying part so far has got to be the "Werk in Progress" quest. Pilot an Abomination, sure. Take forever to kill anything with it, especially the summoners who keep using Drain Life to heal themselves.... no thank you.
I dont have any thing from the original scourge days so I think its really cool to have a new keepsake. Looking forward to getting it, fingers crossed
