    I remember when -years ago- Blizzard argued that too many currencies are bad for the game.

    175 anima.. really? Even 3 of those are rather pathetic..

    Getting trolled with the same item pieces or the worst stat combination each week isn't enough, even the consolation prize has to be below a 15 minutes worth of world quests?

    your too late see 3rd post 175 anima is a joke, so is 250 soul ash and what's the point of stygia in 9.1 again? id rather that token could be used to give us the slot we actually want even if its 3/4 ilvls below our current reward. the reward should be something useful to 9.1 instead of stygia if they dont want us to use it to gear like torghast knowledge or catalogue pages

    according to recent PTR notes, you can buy the token for alt-gear with stygia. so either stygia stays relevant and they go the "who cares what i said yesterday?" route, or the PTR is using stygia as a placeholder right now. some mounts from the new faction also cost stygia iirc.

    but yeah, all 3 currencies are useless for most main chars.
    if only there was a currency that could be useful for main chars, i don't know, valor or conquest/honor maybe.

    On topic, i think the legendary effect for Venthyr hunter should have been baseline or at least via conduit. it is the only covenant ability for hunter that has zero use in AoE while all others can be used in ST without it impacting your ST gameplay. heck depending on gear Wild Spirits is stronger for ST than the Venthyr ability is.

    Why not add Valor reward instead of stupid Anima?

    Another new currency. Woo!

    Now make it drop from enemies at random and allow us to exchange it for those things and trade goods. Like we had in lots of expansions until they decided not to bother any more.

    Man I unsubbed like 4 months ago and I already forgot what some of these currencies are used for....

    I really am not liking the complete lack of imagination from blizzard this expac, and most of BFA. it's like an AI spreadsheet designs the game based on what it thinks MMORPG players want, and left out the fun part of the equation.

    I had more fun auto attacking with a paladin on tbc classic than i have in retail in half a year. Retail just feels off, like a version of WoW made by and for people who hate the golden age of WoW

    Yeah but that was the old guard. The ones who could actually make fun games, that grow in value, size and player count.

    When is the last time WoW saw a sub jump that was unrelated to classic, an expac launch, or just a patch? When's the last time WoW was in such a good state that word of mouth alone brought in new players?

    We've become accustomed to things being so bad that we only expect jumps for classic launches, expac launches, or major patches, and yeah that's always existed to some degree, but word of mouth and WoW used to matter. WoW's word of mouth with the community these days isn't exactly glowing in praise, and hasn't in a long time.

    This current team that inherited WoW after Legion was designed isn't even the B team. They are like, the D- JV drop out team.

    The Hunter legendary would be better if Flayed Shot did the damage instead of KS. Reason being that you first need the proc during a pack, but you also need it to proc early enough that you get the actual damage from the bleed to tick. Lastly, gonna have to be careful and pick which target you use it since it’s a tiny 8 yards.

    As I am one of the 5 Necro hunters I don't know if this has been reported yet but the bag of munitions leggo is bugged and currently gives the shaman effect.

    Well the Kyrian warlock one is useless. 8 seconds of 40% crit is not that great considering you need something to die with your ability on it. 100% was probably not going to see play, but 40% definitely won't. It isn't overpowered(I usually avoid it) in Torghast so what would somehow make it so in actual play....the night fae one is also pretty bad and won't ever replace an existing legendary. The other 2 probably the same.

    Jesus H Christ, another freaking currency added to WoW.

    WTF, just stop already with the many new systems, on top of systems in each WoW expansion lately, and this stupid currency crap of Anima and Soul Ash and now Stygia. No wonder why Shittylands blows. Go back to a revised MoP style already. They've made current WoW so freaking lame with all this crap.

    Never do Artifact weapons or AP grinds, or Netherlight Crucible crap
    Don't ever create Azerite gear, and have an Azerite grind, no Essence stuff, and Corruption garbage
    Nuke the lame Covenant gear, no Soulbinds, no Conduits, no Anima, no Soul Ash.

    Can we have the next expansion with no "Systems" please. And Ion needs to take a different position, give us a new WoW game leader, fresh blood is needed.

    Good idea, rewards are not high enough though to make it really a worthy constellation for a terrible vault.
