I don't feel like I accomplished anything, because I didn't need any of them. 496's? I have nothing below 502. And even for my alts maybe I'll use one or two but they are pretty terrible.
I'm curious if everyone still thinks this is great content in a month. Even if you have 10 alts you can be done in a week. You will also be skipping everything with your alts. No heroic dungeons, no scenarios, no LFR. You do Timeless Isle for a few evenings and then SoO LFR. Have fun farming SoO LFR for 6 months (also with players who have no clue how to play their class because they skipped everything).
It's indeed also quite cheap. It looks creative and new but they reused models on almost everything and let's be honest the island doesn't look breathtaking or anything it's just a forest and a bridge (not anything like when you fly over pandaria and see the good looking palaces and buildings etc.).
I'm not impressed but the epics keep me going a little but I think I will be done with it very fast.
I also finished proving grounds gold in one go. Looks like some fun, bit of a challenge. I think a lot of players will find it very challenging. I will try endless mode this weekend see how far I can get.
The celestial protectors were also way too easy. Much easier than I expected. I invited some people at 1:00 AM last night through general chat and thought we would need at least 20-25 people. We did it with 10-15 and one tank and one healer (me in dps gear ilvl 508). I got tier legs, thanks! lol
Catching up oke. Casual playstyle sure. But a world boss getting one shotted by a few randoms, without knowing anything about him and doing it with barely a decent group... that has nothing to do with a casual playstyle or catching up. Like previous world bosses weren't easy enough? (And what's up with graveyards being 2 meters away from these bosses? God.)

You can get 535 items, vanity items, SoO ilvl items from the Celestials and Ordos.
This much hate for 489 epics?
489 epics are like 430 blues in 5.0.
They are 64 ilvls behind normal raid gear.
Get over it.
I don't get the drama. The gear is abysmal most of the time. So far I've got 1 usable cloak for my twink out of approximately 5 or 6 cloak tries. The random stats are almost always crap.
The only "problem" as i see it, is that SoO LFR will flood with even more newbies who got geared fast.. the items itself are useless..
My girlfriend said she does't like metal.
Now she is Single
No Just kidding
She is Dead
Magister's Terrace during Burning Crusade, Forge of Souls, Pit of Saron and Halls of Reflection during WotLK. End Time, The Moonwell and the Attack on Wyrmrest during Cata
as far as i see it, Timeless Isle is just like those dungeons
check my stuff out :Y ronibro.tumblr.com
and in another world where this is done, the alt!OC is bitching about how it takes forever to gear up alts and how disgusting it is how blizz is pandering to Elites.
Man..so now LFR "veterans" piss on "newbies"? Seriously..what kind of low self esteem do we have that we even need to distinguish in LFR? "You..new kid...go run LFR 5.0 and 5.2 and don't you dare ruin my LFR 5.4 experience"?

Now they can scream "WTF BLIZZARD? Epic gear from an island that put raidgear to shame? It was so much better in the past..I miss 5 mans!!!"
