    Meh this doesn't look nearly as fun as they made it out to be.

    So .... it just takes 63 days to complete.

    Seems like another system I'll just completely ignore. Nothing it does upgrades my character, and I plan to spend as little time as humanly possible in the new zone since I doubt we can fly there. Will just do the campaign for the double legendary or tier set or whatever dumb shit is tied to it and then stay in Oribos like I have the last two patches.

    If it does end up being really required I'll just ask a friend what order to unlock things in and just do whatever he says. Systems like this add nothing of value to the game, unfortunately.

    A game designer really looked at this and thought "players will find this fun to do" huh.

    So instead of coming back for 9.2 I should come back 3 months after 9.2. Got it.

    Looks like fun, seems like all those actually playing the game instead of treating it as a glorified lobby for their raids or M+ will have a good time.

    8 month to full research

    More systems, yay.. goodie. Shadowlands really needs a trigger warning for my anxiety :P
  1. Ophenia's Avatar
    Overly complicated systems are now the norm in every single game, I don't know, is there really a demand for that ? If yes then I'm clearly out of touch haha
  1. reemi's Avatar
    another reason to play Classic instead.
  1. Vintersol's Avatar
    Another system no one asked for.
  1. Very rare pepe's Avatar
    New systems are ok IMO but we don't need completely new systems every patch, just seems bloated and not needed.
  1. kranur's Avatar
    Systems ... many many many many many many many fucking systems.

    Good thing no one believed them when they said they finally realized system suck and will move away from them lol.

    Want some nice gameplay? Here .. level this system for 6 months.

    So.. many... systems...
  1. Dispirit84's Avatar
    How deaf to community feedback can one company be? We heard you guys are getting tired of all the systems introduced in Shadowlands, so in 9.2...we brought you another system! Top notch work guys. Good job.
  1. Darkeon's Avatar
    If you need an entire front page to describe and explain your new systems, you may have overdone it.

    What a shitshow.

    Last "gift" from Sephuz?
