    It's funny how times change. The rare occasion I would ever unsubscribe I'd see a new content patch and come back. Now I just laugh and pity the people that support WoW. I remember the traffic on these posts even the FB page for mmo-c. I hope they heavily restructure in the coming years.

    MMO-C was never the biggest community.

    And pitying people for enjoying something, even if you don't, seems rather pathetic in itself, I have to say.

    Worst end patch in WoW history.

    You'd have to be brain dead to enjoy this low effort "content".

    I want the alpaca and bug mount, so I'll do those dailies for them and then i'm out too probably.
  1. Solarnova's Avatar
    All of these mounts locked behind playing a certain amount of time in a row tells me all I need to know about Blizzard's desperation. Forget it. Those daily quests are AWFUL. Single-tap quest objectives, long spawn times, 200 people all doing the same thing in the same area thanks to CRZ--which we've wanted removed for a decade now. Enough already. This is the direct opposite direction of what needed to be done, 8.2's Mechagon is how you do it right--this is not.

    Call me "brain dead", cause I'm enjoying myself.

    People always complained on these forums, go and play your Final Fantasy 625.

    Patch is ok, for a person like me with job/kid/family that play 1h a day and sometimes more on weekends there is more than enough content to keep me busy till Shadowlands.
    If you are spending your whole day playing WoW, there wont ever be enough for you.

    Alts, transmogs, pet battles, pvp, mount runs, filling up collection tab, glory runs, gearing my main, etc.

    WoW has plenty things to do, if you are bored just quit, maybe you’ve grown up. :P

    I received no gear reward from the new Uldum assault, so not sure if bug or intended
  1. Lucetia's Avatar
    Anyone know where to get the "Wounded Wastewanderers" quest? Not seeing it in the camp.

    Nevermind. Looks like you have to progress through the Explorer's League quest some.

    Just did it with @icedwarrior and I got gear (a 3rd pair of bracers on same toon) and he got nothing. So might be a bug.

    I'm already over this patch. This constant grinding for legendary cloak upgrades, with daily homework. No.

    I will unlock the allied races and then once all wings are available in LFR, do the raid 1 time. Other than that, I'm sticking with Classic.

    Because constant grinding totally isn't a thing in classic too, riiiight?

    Out of the Cache of the Aqir Swarm I received 200 war resources, 5500 Coalescing Visions and 58 corrupted mementos. No Gold, No gear. 2nd day in a row that I didn't get gold from one of the chests, though I think I got an ilvl 415 item yesterday (which was below what I was already wearing).

    The vale info doesnt seem to be correct for eu? Wrong pet battle and wrong events. Edit: Uldum seems also wrong for eu, pet battle is different.. Seems to be the stuff from yesterday before the reset, not much point to it now.

    Same but no gear. These fucking assaults are too much a pain in the ass to do and not get gear . Blizzard has shit the bed on this patch

    Thanks for the summary, very helpful!

    I did not get a piece of gear from the Cache of the Aqir Swarm. This post is wrong. I should be able to report the post, as I can report to comments, because it's just flat wrong.

    Agreed.... Did the set of quests this morning before server down, and doing one through due to the head having a shit drop rate for the "Getting Ahead" quest, I was farming those bastards for over 20 minutes due to the low spawn rate just for 1 quest. I can't even imagine trying to do that crap during prime time.
