    Can we not do this? Let's stop pretending it takes anything other than raw time spent in-game to accomplish anything. The only difference in between you and a "shit player" is hours played.

    In that context is it really something to brag about?

    There are guilds that clear the same content I do on 6 hours a week. You have no argument.

    Man brings his car to a shop because he's got an issue. Mechanic looks at the car, spends 10 minutes under the hood to fix the problem, and bills the customer for one hour of labor (the minimum).

    The customer is shocked, "What do you mean one hour? It took you 10 minutes!"

    The mechanic replied, "True, but it took me 20 years to learn how to do it in 10 minutes."

    Those guilds didn't start off clearing that raid in 6 hours. They beat their head against a wall for endless hours to be able to clear it now, at the end of the xpac, in 6.

    This elitism is dumb as hell. You are no better than any other player, your /played is just bigger. Congrats! Don't conflate the results of endless hours of practice with talent.

    No, we need the items they've removed in the name of 'prestige' bringing back if anything. I loathe being pigeon-holed into content I don't enjoy for fear rewards being removed.
    Blood Elves are basically High Elves. Slightly different eye color and backstory, but if you want to be a light skinned elf, that is basically a Blood Elf. Giving that to the Alliance would blur the line between factions.-Ion Hazzikostas: Game Director for World of Warcraft

    Still, it would be nice to have a little more variety and options.

    Also, I just have to say, I find myself distracted by your avatar and signature whenever I see them. Well played.

    No, I mean, there are guild that raid literally 6 hours a week, every week, never anything more, and achieve cutting edge. You're making a fool of yourself.

    What makes that 1% more important that they need (demand) extra incentive from Blizzard? Are those 1% paying more? Are those 1% bringing more income for Blizzard?

    So you think catering to the 1% of the player base is important for the health of the game?

    But then again everything can be bought in this game for gold.

    Mythic+ runs, Arena carrys, Mythic gear, Mythic mount drops etc etc.

    Can't compare player run economy to a vendor item. You can't "buy" mythic mounts on day 1.

    Buying gear/runs/mounts/carries are possible because content can be overgeared, especially previous tiers or lower difficulty.

    Also Arena gear/mounts doesn't always need to have the #1 spot to get X reward depending on what it is, unlike old grand marshal where it really was 1 or a few people getting it at a time.

    then you really didnt play legion.

    I got a coolwarframe, a really cool demon dog, and an amazing infernal mount, others got those and also a twisted dranei demon dog, aswell as lots of cool water mounts and rep mounts.

    Might just be I hit the diminished reward spot myself. I already had a fel warframe.

    I don't know 0ersonally it's gotten to the point where for me a mount is a mount there isn't a reason to go off the beaten path for one. Maybe instead add cosmetic option like the mage fire orbs or quivers to achievements like glory of the hero/ raider and keep them as the sole source. Something to get people off the beaten path and add that wow factor.

    Does anyone else think wow needs some kind of reward for difficult parts of the game that isn't simply recolored and eventually given out freely to everyone? Some kind of thropy prize in the same vein as pvp elite skins?

    Sorry this is kind of ranty it's a tricky subject to sum up.

    As you said, we already have them. Challenging tasks that are time restricted, which means you can't just cheese to complete in the next expansion.

    NO, absolutely not, or well, at least when it comes to cosmetics.

    Items that improve your characters, like actual gear and/or other improvements, like powerful consumeables, enchants etc can surely require some prestige and effort to get.

    But cosmetics, mounts, pets, toys, transmog etc should NOT require an insane amount of effort or skill to obtain. They are cosmetic and doesn't improve your characters per se. In fact, I would love to see a bigger stock of these things in vendors, both ingame and in the actual shop OR include some kind of loot boxes in WoW that award mounts, pets, toys etc (even old ones with a current source), that you get from playing the game or buys.

    People dislike loot boxes however for some reason, but as long as they don't give you any game-improving items (like gear) and are obtainable with both ingame and IRL means, they are like a perfect system. Overwatch is flawless in this as an example!

    if by prestige you mean an endless grind sort of thing to increase some number then definitely no. if you rather mean things like titles or rare transmogs or mounts then yeah I would say it’s a good thing.

    wasnt it like insanely more difficult to have 2 high warlords any given week? like they both had to have way more honor than a single one
