    Well, timeless island doesn't give you VP beside the 200 weekly one does it? and it seems to take forever.

    I'd rather have both.. you can plan dailies when you have limited time, camping rares on timeless island is kind of boring.. so why not have dynamic events happening while we're questing.

    The biggest problems with dailies:

    It was a mistake on Blizzards part to make one rep unlock the dailies for another
    It was a mistake to tie rather important storyline into D.O. dailies and rep.

    Beyond that, the playerbase equated them with something that simply must be done, each and every day, for all available factions. While Blizzard should have expected exactly that sort of behavior, you can't blame irrational player behavior on the game itself.

    As many say here, I would like a combination of both.
    I find Timeless Isle extremely boring at the moment, it's just ginding without any apparent goal.
    Atleast with dailies you can do them and be done in 30 min, after that do other things.

    I think they swing too far with either.

    as most ppl i love dailys i did not mind them, i worked my way into all exalted and achievements at the start of the xpac at this point i have nothing else in me to do timeless isle, what they really need it to do it was more like that BC zone where you créate bunch of spots where ppl will usually meet, choke points or w/e u want to call it, on a pve server ppl will just move along and on a pvp server they will fight if they want.

    right now i hate the retarded ammount of rares they added to the isle, i loved the thundering isle i think thats the perfect balance right there, set of dailys and add rares as they did on timeless if you want to hunt your way.

    mixture of both and both offering rewards that will allow you to pick what you want to do that day, kill rares or do dailys for the same result. or you can call them weeklys idc.

    is like archeology, they went overhand with it and i find imposible to grind all that crap.

    The main thing I find a bit boring about the timeless isle is that once i've gotten the chests, on the alts I most want to farm the place for charms and coins...they can barely handle the elites.

    Yet the characters I have that can easily handle them, are the characters that do not NEED to be farming them.

    I'd actually prefer if they LET you choose which set of "dailies" you want to do each day. That way, you aren't stuck with the "damn these are friggin' annoying" ones, it reduces the number of people piled in each area, and, if you get burned out on one, you can just switch to doing another.

    Don't know why they didn't do this sooner, frankly.

    This thread has been an interesting read. There's more support here for dailies than I would have imagined given the rather violent reaction to them in 5.0 and later. Most will agree that the way dailies were set up in 5.0 was not very good so I doubt if anyone wants to see that again.

    I said earlier that I'm for a mix of both directed and undirected things to do and a lot of people have come down on point with that. Most of the people that I play with treat TI like a big giant daily anyway running the same routes day after day. A couple of them have even told me how much they enjoy TI and how happy they are that there isn't much in the way of dailies on it. Sort of ironic.

    Anyway, good thread. I hope someone at Blizzard sees it.

    People prefer dailies? Oh really? Wow yeah i remember all the people here commending blizzard for their great work with 5.0 daily grind.

    Please...
    There is a reason there will be no more dailies in WoD and timeless isle was fine but the emphasys on exploration got wrecked by the fact the island was extremely small and thanks to the pvp griefers coin

    Both were executed badly.

    At the start of the expansion there were just way too many dailies and too many good items were locked behind reputation that required doing dailies.

    Timeless Isle is too small and boring. It became an empty place in just two weeks.

    I hope WoD will have a good combination but I doubt it. If you are unable to make proper content after 9 years of the same shit I lose faith. 9 years of developement and what do you get? Timeless Isle...

    p.s. I never had real problems with those dailies. I just did them to get what I wanted and it wasn't a big deal for me.

    From the 2 options we have now I would chose dailies.
    but devs said they are going to improve timeless Isle style questing in WoD so I have big hopes for it.

    Frankly, I just saw those as effort needed to get what they rewarded. They didn't reward anything essential; every service rendered by them was a bonus.

    The activities weren't particularly hard, or even necessarily time consuming... maybe an hour or so, MAX, a day to finish them all, and that included travel time.

    They were what was required to achieve an ends, just as killing thousands of Yaungol are for the timeless isle. The only difference is that dailies had far, far less competition, were generally more enjoyable, offered story progression, and let you progress in a much less spastic manner.

    I really don't see anything else on the timeless isle as "equatable" with dailies beyond the rep grind... And I honestly don't feel blizzard should try that sort of rep grind more than ONCE per expansion.

    I hate both.

    I preferred the Isle of Thunder, the PvP wasn't as horrid, it was pretty dynamic (not as dynamic, but still) and it also had dailies. I had the income that the dailies provided (as I was PvP oriented) and had as much fun as I did on the Timeless Isle before it become a horrible PvE-geared death pit.

    Why don't they just use that model? A hub of optional daily/weekly quests with dynamic events. Holinka mentioned that in Warlords of Draenor, PvE players would have the same item level as PvP players so PvE gear being a problem shouldn't factor into it either.

    I don't mind this either, although after a while I can't be bothered with it and it makes you feel like you've missed out if you don't do them for a couple of days.

    Timeless Isle is way better, it's fun to run around and chase rare bosses and such. Surprised how fun it was. Dailies on their own are one of the worst things to be added.

  16. #136
    I like the idea of rare spawns that aren't tagged in the traditional sense. However with dailies I actually felt like I was accomplishing something instead of waiting around for more rares to show up. Aside from gear drops, TI was kinda pointless for anything aside from introducing Kairoz for the next expansion.

    Like Hovis bread, both combined to a satisfying degree. I actually enjoy dailies!
    Isn't it ironic how education is important, yet people forget all about it when they visit the internet?

    Yeah, gotta agree, and it makes little sense. "Where is the guy who ordered me to kill those big ass wolves the last time?" "Well, it's my watch now, and I don't give a crap about the wolves. Gather some herbs for me"

    My Main is Horde, but i wanted that feel like back in vanilla and started an alliance alt. Im on a High populated Server (EU-Frostwolf) with 98% Horde.
    Timeless Isle is so shit since im not getting farmed by Blood-Coin Crews but even every other Horde Pack... All i can do is get invited by a friends whos alt is on a 98% Alliance Server... And i wont pay 20€ to farm Rares on a dull island

    dailies were fine when you werent forced to do them for gear and rep. Dungeon grinding used to be so much more fun than dailies
