I remember when wow was just do dungeons till you're geared enough for raiding. That was fun....
I kind of resent the author of this article just a little for making it sound like the content on this list is mandatory ... It's not, this is just a list of content the game has to offer that players can do. Most of it is not required for anything and can be done at your pace for fun, whenever. For min/max raiders/pvp, there is actually very little that you have to do for preparation for your end game content. In fact, this is definitely the least "mandatory grindy" expansion since WoD.Not sure why people have a hard time understanding this.
Bloody hell. This is the first expansion in 15 years that made me go from "awesome!" to "let this torment end!" in just 5 short hours it took me from finishing the main campaign to getting to know all the "endgame activities" SL has to offer. I hated BfA, but even it did not have such grind and so many mechanisms that artificially lengthen the gameplay time and make it genuinely unpleasant. The BfA zones were at least easily accesible and easy to navigate. They even managed to make the dailies worse than ever.This &*!@ is not for me.
I really hate how everyone treat players that wants cosmetics as third class players that don't deserve any conveniences, most players do that and this is way too much.
Except Replenish the Reservoir is bugged for Venthyr since early beta and it's still not fixed, so I'm very frustrated right now. Renown LVL 2 forever. Been doing WQ's for 4 days and delivering anima without seeing progress. Googling it also didn't help, 100s of the same topic but no solution. Sending a ticket was hilarious, they send me to WOWHEAD and put it on resolved. But nobody here knows about it. Even on Twitter wowhead reacted surprised that Blizzard forwards people to this site to complain.
This is all optional content, you know.You don't need Anima.Here's the list of my chores: Get to lvl 60, choose a covenent.Do the mythic dungeons to gear for raiding.That's it. Everything else is just extra stuff you -can- do if you get bored. Anima is more for fun exploration, mounts, pets, that kinda thing.I'm ilvl 174 now and ready to clear them again next week. The weekly quests give me something to do if I wanna kill time, same as everything else on this list. <3
8 Mythic is not good idea for time
If this week's renown 3 is somehow too much for people i'd assume they never cared about AP for heroic/mythic uldir azerite traits, nor did they grind every reputation to be able to craft the things that were way more mandatory than any of this. Personally having 3 characters to renown 3 at this point has been great. Not once did i feel like i was taking away from my main cause i was missing out on AP or rep. Sure, if you're someone who has to do every possible thing available this is bad. I however don't understand the mentality of "i have to do everything, please dont make me do things" myself.
For the Weekly PvP / Dungeon Quests you need to pickup a quest (trading favors) from the inn keeper first to show the quests.
This is confusing AF. The levelling experience was great but then you hit end game and are faced with learning what feels like about 12 different mobile games all at once. It's crazy.
golden bfa tbh, all u had to do was emissary, story and war campaign..... shadowlands has to much activities to be done.... nothing for casuals :)
People complaining about how much there is to do.. Its actually super easy to get it all done.I now have my second toon to 60 at Ilvl 170 with renown 3 and 810 soul ash.This expansion is so far the first one ive ever gotten two characters up to date in the same week.All while maintaining a full time job, and only playing for a few hours each night.Sure not everyone can play each night, but it really isnt that much work, and if you cant put in a few hours each night, or a big session on a weekend, most of it is completely optional, you dont need to get all your soul ash, you dont need to be 170 ilvl week 1.
This is a bit much...they really neede to pushback the raid to jan..Im not going to be ilvl in Time for it for normal..guess im stuck in kindergarten and will be stuck in lfg mode..#$%^..I wanted to raid normal and heroic this expansion..guess that not going to happen
