Honestly, what the hell is this? I know WoW is a game for casuals but seems that as of this expansion, it's a game for casual casuals. I play the game quite a lot and I simply find myself with nothing to do.
JP and VP can't be farmed anymore.
Apexis can't be farmed in any efficient way, other than the daily assault quest.
Heroics only give garrison supplies, that most people don't even need.
Here's a mindblowing notion. Maybe the fact why heroics have such long queues, especially as dps, is not because there are too many people doing them, but because there are too few people interested, as there is literally no reason at all to farm heroics and once you got your decent ilevel required to join LFR, hcs got nil for you. Also add the fact that many people buy AH boes instead of farming gear.
So now, that we concluded heroic farming is a thing of the past. Let's look at the other options for spending time in WoW.
*LFR. Okay, should take you about 30 min to complete it.
*Ashran. Depending on the faction balance, it should take you 1 hour tops if your faction is winning, or it may not even be worth joining it (ie. Horde on Sylvanas). Well that's if you enjoy zerg pvp anyway.
*Battlegrounds. Considering how fast you get geared with welfare pvp gear (now comes in boxes too, so you don't by any chance waste any time gearing in an...MMO), it should take you a 2-3 days at the very most to get fully geared.
*Arenas. Ok, the time required for capping is now even shorter. Not that it took you long in previous expansions anyway.
There are no rep dailies to do. Yes, I know you hate dailies but, guess what, they gave you something to do. And whatever rep vendors there are they sell junk like toys, followers and blues, with the exception of the apexis vendor that requires a shitload of apexis which you can't farm anyway and by the time you do farm some, you already have better gear anyway.
Other than the raids I do 3 times per week, 3 hours each, there is nothing for me to do that would keep me occupied for more than 1 hour.
I now see why Blizzard was so hellbent on adding garrisons. Without garrisons I would have NOTHING to do at all in the game.
Last time I experienced this precise situation was roughly 5 months after SoO was released in MoP, as I was logging in, afk-ing, slacking, looking for wpvp, more slacking and afk-ing and finally logging off. This was between raids. And shortly after that I just quit WoW until the WoD release as I couldn't justify paying a sub for such light content.
Where is the fucking content, Celestalonski?!
Oh and if you're gonna suggest doing achievements and pet battles, go have sexual intercourse with yourself.
