    I love Timeless Isle.... just my 2 cents

  2. #222
    It needs work, but its a vast improvement on world of dailycraft.

    Need rares to have more health or scale so people can get there, needs to be bigger and with multiple events at any one time scattered around the area, needs a better alert system, or more predictable events, as well as random rares.

    But its preferable to dailies...
    capitalism works you say?
    Want to try again?

    Some will like it, some will hate it. I wish people would stop acting like their opinion is fact.

    Exactly this. No one is forced to do it, there's rares where you can save up coins to for example gamble for a pet or an upgrade for your timeless items. The items aren't that good even though they're 496(535 upgraded). They´re kinda equal to SoO LFR(I would even replace a upgraded timeless item for a SoO LFR because it's giving me the right stats+sockets etc.

    Many people including my self don't have the time to run LFR with multiple chars a week going through many LFR to get gear to move on to the next raid tier.

    Also you get a mount(huolon) and multiple battle pet drop around the isle which I love.

    Only thing I dislike about Timeless Isle is the item which makes your own faction turn on you. That is what is the biggest failure ever, no one should be able to turn on their own faction, not in WoW, not in ANY MMO game.

    And also it gives me a place where I can run around on my ground mount not feeling forced to use my flying mount.

    Exactly, opinions aren't facts. And seeing how the poll went in another post most people preferred Timeless isle then any other content MoP brought(which is basically the same since TBC). No one likes to do daily quests for 5 faction each day, I was spending just over 2+ hours a day for 3 weeks back at MoP release and I was like 1-2 weeks away from exalted everywhere except Golden Lotus. Just to be able to purchase the items with points.

    Good idea, but too small a scale to work imo, not enough to do and not difficult enough.

    OP, if you literally hate anything in this video game or any other, it's time to reconsider the direction your life is going in.

    Under your bed.
    I went there to get the 3 mounts and 20 battle pets. Tanking SoO in full timeless isle gear and a blue weapon was a pretty fun experience lmao

    The thing is, that if the content that's put out there for you to do doesn't engage you, so you choose not to do it; you find the game somewhat lacking and you log off. I don't think that's healthy for the game if large numbers of people are choosing not to participate in that content.

    And the fact that the 'dailies and progressive story' is split amongst several different options. For example I voted 5.1, but the deciding factor between that and 5.2 was the solo scenario gating that kept my Holy Paladin from participating. :\

    Battlebeard you are so damn right.....the timeless isle is the worst bullshit i have ever seen in a game.

    Ok, dailies like MoP 5.0.....a hell too, but dailies like the Argent Tournament, the best thing ever. I have done them the 10th or 11th time with an alt only two weeks ago. Blizz should remind themselves on them. They were the best way. Same goes for Thundering Isle and Molten Front. I liked them too. They weren't as great as the Tournament, but they were very good.

    And there is another BIG BIG downside on this Timeless Horror. When something like Dailies comes out with a new patch, well you have a calculated amount of time/afford you have to do per Day. You can plan ahead. When you get up in the morning you exactly know: Today i have to spent about an hour of time for everything and after that i'm free. With Timeless Horror you can't. There are bullshit amounts of things you can do to improve or you can achieve. And if you don't want to fall behind the others you HAVE to do that. This sums up to 2-3 Weeks of hours over hours of stupid grinding and a lot of nights without sleep. I for myself was nearly burnt out after Timeless Horror and was an inch away from quitting WoW due to enormous exhaustion. I decided for myself: FUCK YOU Timeless Horror.....i stopped doing this. Completely. At first I tried only to do the weekly for my Valor Cap. I stopped that too. I can't stand to see another turtle. I dreamed of Turtles....rotating Turtles.......NEVER EVER AGAIN. I rather go 4 days a week on HC Scenario and HC Dungeon than to set one foot on this fucked up Isle.

    If WoD will be like Timeless Horror as a whole.....bye bye WoW

    You hate Isle of thunder, you hate timeless isle

    this game is not for you, no need to make a topic about how you hate the game

  13. #233
    Yep have to agree with the OP Timeless Island is putrid.

  14. #234
    Play Ride to Hell: Retribution. Then, come back and lecture us on "worst idea in any game, ever".

    Because you can't back that post title up.

    Too many "I prefer to work for my gear" comments in this thread. The stuff from Timeless Isle is 496. Equal to what people were wearing a year ago when Heart of Fear and Terrace of Endless Springs were relevant... If you're content with using that then you do not seem to grasp the concept of MMOs; that is an endless grind to get the best stuff before the new best stuff is out.

    ^This was my problem w/ Timeless Isle, I was bored w/ it w/in the fist day or two. The overall idea of it sounded great but there just wasn't enough substance to keep my attention. I like the whole exploration idea and wish Blizz would go into it much more (kinda like GW2). Overall the isle was MoP's Ruby Sanctum... just bullshit content to give ppl something to do and catch up alts until WoD!, only problem is it got boring literally on day 2.

    The one thing they should've done is have the Moss Covered chest, w/ reduced rewards ofcourse after first interaction, regenerate weekly at random locations. Give ppl sort of a weekly easter egg hunt rather than a one time hunt.
    As far as the 496 ilvl tokens, I did use them to fill in missing pieces on alts but I think they were just entirely a bad idea. If ppl can't earn that ilvl gear through the somewhat raiding and cooperative play in lfr than they have no right to it because it does just hurt the players and added more "class ignorant" players into the LFR pool and it already has more than enough.

    Overall I think Timeless Isle was a good idea just really piss poor implementation. They could've done much better w/ it and made it so much more interesting and longer lasting PVE content or atleast I think they could've.

    i disagree that its the worst idea created in any game ever. having played everquest and star wars galaxies, the timeless isle is really not even in their league.

    however, it does suck, i go there as little as possible, and i really really really hope the 'timeless isle model' is only a small portion of the next expansion.

    For a week it was fun, but now I think it is killing the game. I only go on Tuesdays now, in hopes of a better drop from Celestials.
