    Firelands dailys have ruined the game for me

    When the recent patch came out, we all were faced with a decision: what toon do I devote the next 30+ days to grind out all the dailys for?

    Sure, if you have no life/job you can mindlessly play WoW on all 20 alts, and this issue isnt a problem.

    But for those of use that play 2-3 hours at night, the prospect of a 30 day long grind is just too much.

    I have played for almost 6 years, and I have never felt so much stress from the prospect of doing a crap ton of dailys. It seems like casual PVP is the only way to go.

    Why continue to do the same old 5-mans we've been doing for 6 months? Firelands raiding is only for very dedicated guilds. For some reason, I dont see any PUG raids for the nerfed raids. Probably because running them for gear is pointless when you can PVP or run 5 mans for better gear.

    This game is really testing my resolve.

    I missed the part where doing dailies every day without fail was a requirement.

    But lol @ your assessment of firelands, your realm should be able to throw together a pug that can at least kill Shannox.

    Firelands is pretty easy to pug, at least the first few bosses anyway. But I also do not do the dailies. I hate them.

    Four years after the introduction of the daily quest concept and people still refer to them as "dailys".
    Things like this (and rouge, enchancement, inscriptioner and shatratah) make my eyes bleed.

    Also, if the Firelands dailies would not have ruined the game for you, I am sure anything else would have, any time soon. You played this game for too long, or find you have nothing left to do in-game anymore. No problem, just quit playing for a while. It's not like someone makes you play, right?

    Are you retarded or something? The dailies doesnt take more than 20 minutes to do...
    Women always wonder why when they have sex with many men, they are considered whores, and when guys have sex with many women, they are considered players or studs, I like to put it this way, its like padlocks, if a key can open many locks, its a master key, but if a lock can be opened by many keys, its a shitty fucking lock.

    You don't now and have never needed to do dailies. I have limited myself to 3 85s (so I can devote time to each), I do the dailies every day on only 1 of those.

    I think you're forgetting the main thing here: no one is forcing you to do anything on WoW, you dont HAVE to do dailies, or HAVE to farm dungeons/raids, you can do anything you like! Stating that the dailies have ruined the game for you is total BS, it's you that's ruining the game for you! Log on and do what you want, and you'll soon find happiness and joy come too.

    Ehh, I they're not game breaking for me (At least) but I refuse to do 'em just because I personally think Firelands is a joke and a half. I get all my upgrades from raiding.

    I may change my mind at some point, but I doubt it.

    OP, I don't really think anyone actually 'likes' dailies in a sense of game making enjoyment, but I could be wrong.

    And so far the dailies doesnt give any nice reward that affects ur gameplay

    If you want to go casual or already are a casual player then PvP is definitaly the way to go. That's what I did.

    Casual PvE doesn't work since Cata.

    (Casual = not planning on playing, no raid calendar etc., simply person who doesn't plan his RL according to a game)

    I'm sorry that WoW is too hard for you.. maybe you should move to Rift

    since you started playing during vanilla.. I understand how big of a change it is to not just be able to log in find a raid group and get through the content anymore..

    at least that's what I remember from vanilla.. and TBC.. everything was quick and efficient..

    How can something completely optional ruin the game for you? they take 20-30 mins tops, maybe less. please lock this thread.

    Why do you HAVE to do them? The rewards off the vendors are vanity items... the gear you get off them is really not that good, and the dailies don't have anything to do with the firelands raid or the rep associated with it.

    /confused

    Even without a really viable spec to do those (pve and pvp holy on my paladin) i do them in 30min. max when i'm alone. When i go with a guildie it's like 15minutes.

    The dailies revitalized the game for me. Now I have something to do on my main and favorite alt everyday. The dailies take (I have both Shadow Wardens and Druids of the Talon unlocked on both toons) about 60 minutes get to done on both characters. I also have a new set of achievements to go after.

    Everyone plays the game differently, and I can see that having 10 toons that you care about can be tough on someone who wants to get the dailies done on all of the toons but can't. At the same time though, you can't progress through the game on 10 toons at the same time keeping them all up to date on date content, dailies, etc. So I really don't see the problem here.

    The Firelands raid is *very* PuG-able on my realms (Medivh & Shadowsong), even if you only get the first 2-3 bosses down in a few hours... I consider that very PuG-able since it is still the current tier of raiding. Past tiers (T11) get PuG'd all the time on both realms as well.

    I really don't see how Firelands dailies ruined your game, do what you've been doing before, and leave out the "ruining" part?

    Organise a pug yourself, I see them on a daily basis.
    And how can something optional ruin the game? You don't have to do the dailies.

    Someone isn't a fanboy just because they don't bash the game with every word. Quit trying to start something.
