    You guys realise that if they hadn't put that shitty gear on TI it would've just been purchaseable for JP like in previous patches?

    In fact SoO is probably the most restrictive raid patch ever, you can't buy VP-equivalent gear without raiding either.

    Yes but now they are giving warforged gear out.

    the only thing I would change about timeless isle is how the rare bosses work... give him a timer(say 2 minutes) in which he will always heal up to full hp... right after he spawns... that way u have at least 2 minutes after he spawned to get to him... or if you are there you hit him once and you can leave and get the loot in the mail box.

    Ever? Ever!? I mean, Hey You Pickachu is still out there. Link's crossbow training still also exists.

    The point is that, WORST EVER is subjective.

    I agree with the OP although "worst idea ever" is obviously overstated. One thing that's not talked about enough is how Timeless Isle is connected to the death of LFR more than any other factor. A shitty alt with shitty 496 timeless isle gear is in no way shape or form ready for SoO LFR. They go in and do 40k dps or 20k hps and basically just taking up a spot but then 50-75% of slots are taken up by them. So why in the hell would someone with actual gear want to go in and carry knowing they would literally have to do well over 3 or 4x the damage or healing of someone with timeless gear. The problem was not nearly this bad in ToT because the gear required to get in there was fairly well itemized and not just trash with a 496 tag attached to it.

    I have a feeling we will see Timeless Isle design being a part of WoD. If so, I hope they execute it better.

    If my alt was full 496, i would probably do more than 20k hps or 40k dps.
    The reasoning people do that is either
    Bad
    or
    Dont care
    both associated with LFR

    On the PTR groups cleared it just fine with 496 gear. The difference? Generally beta testers actually care about the game, and know how to play. That is the issue. I can go on a hunter in full Timeless gear and out dps others by a long shot, and probably some with higher ilvls than me, just because I actaully know how to play my alts

    I think Timeless Isle is a pretty cool place, but I suppose the fact that I haven't gotten Honored with Shaohao let alone grinded enough rep to get the mount, or a single Bloody coin, kind of indicates that in practice I agree with the OP.

    Nothing in the years that I've played on PvP realms, the dozen plus characters I've leveled, has made me wish I played on a carebear realm as much as the Ordos faction. I get why it exists, because so many realms are so, so, so imbalanced now. But my realm isn't, and it just encourages maximum douchebaggery ( /1 "Huolon up, help me kill him" "jklol me and my friends just need more people to murder"), and has no depth or story or objective besides kill or be killed.

    No, Nintendo's Virtual Boy was the worst idea in gaming ever. Full stop.

    If Guild Wars 2's model demonstrated anything, it's that the greatest enemy of fun in a game is the players themselves, who care about nothing except finding a way to break, minimize, or undermine any system to get the shiny as quickly as possible and then complain that they're bored. I'm really not sure why Blizzard decided to take baby steps towards emulating it with Timeless Isle.

    100% agree with the OP

    You don't have to feel they already confirmed that. It will have some things about timeless isle along with the normal questing. Dynamic events, possibly some chests. Which wow used to have in vanilla.

    i say a lot of things.
    some of them may be sarcastic, rude, or insulting.
    but if you read carefully, i dont aim to insult people, and very rarely trolling ~ its my honest opinion. if you think im talking about you, go get some coffee and read it again later.
    have a nice day.

    whats worse it that they force you to do it everyday for the rest of your life, oh i forgot, they dont force you to do anything in wow you dont want to
    but you still feel the need to complain, try switching to blacksmith or enchanter, crybaby is a poor profession for making gold in wow

    Well I love the Timeless Isle. I have fourteen 90s and each one gets to be geared so I can play them immediately at 90.

    Don't like the Isle? Don't go there. Simple.

    E.T. the video game (Atari 2600) wants to dispute that claim, from within the desert landfill where tons of copies of it are buried.

    On-topic: The achievements like "Bigger Bag" are just a time-sink. For me, I lived with it long enough to earn exhalted/buy the damned dragon from Shaohao, and then told him to kiss my Blood Elf ass.

    I wouldn't say worst, but it is really bad. Dailies are worse IMO. Well, let me rephrase that, Dailies as a substitiute for actual content is worse. MoP as a whole was in my opinion just plain terrible. I feel like the only good thing to have come out of this expansion was the Monk class. The daily wall when you hit 90 was the worst intentional design that I have personally ever experienced in a game. Timeless Isle is up there though.

    Going to go ahead and disagree on pretty much every point. I enjoy the isle, and I still run my characters through old raids to fill out item slots and what not.
