    not interested in pets or toys. so its a no thanks for me

    This seems a bit odd. When they said they weren’t gonna do more emissary mounts I figured the reason was so that people didn’t feel onligated to farm them but this seems to lead to the same result. sigh

    Toys are OK. I got the mount for the achievement, so I will not be stressed if I don't get some of these.

I had about 5 alts, so it usually take 80mins to finish 4 reps per day, so I grind 6 hours per day, every day till you get the mount that you need, then it will significantly take less time for the next mount etc etc. The rep tokens missions helped out lots and I usually dump them on my human characters, coupled with WQ quest and Darkmoon festival 10% rep.

    My last mount required 22 boxes, and the hypogriff and moose mount I got them when "I didn't bothered" (they just happen to drop), but I've heard horror stories of players trying >50 boxes but no mounts.

    These are mine.

    The reason why certain players say it is quicker is because they had RNG God smiling on them.

    No idea what you were doing, but I was clearing 3 emissaries in about 25-30 minutes once flying was introduced.

    Would love to see this website unless they were just being facetious. I got the 10000 WQ achievement in April 2017.

    So toys are fine but mounts aren't? Such double standard.

    For whatever reason, many people care about mounts much more than toys or pets. I know I do, personally. So I'm very happy with this change.

    So did I. Never bothered to ask but they brought it up pretty frequently asking me if I'd finally gotten the last two things I needed. I didn't until well into BFA.

    Opened 47 stormheim cache. Still no mount. Actually no got suramar and val'shara mount from "basic" legion rewards. No warden costume either. Got all argus mounts.

    I piss on your random system Blizzard.

    You're are confusing emissaries cache and paragon cache.

    The first one is piss easy to get. The actual relevant one you have to refarm your exalted bar again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again.
    With any true farmer simply doing every single WQ of aimed zone, on multiple humans alts preferably.

    Paragon system is random hot garbage finished by a nice pint of piss.

    Because that's exactly what they want. Instead of adding content, they're adding more "reasons" to do the already existing content.

    You're right, my mistake.

If the drop chance for these toys are as low as they were for the paragon mounts/toys in Legion, then I'll probably pass on these toys. I should be happy when I get a reward, and not for the moment when "I don't have to grind reputations anymore".

    I would like to see an alternative method to get them, either a currency system or making the toys BoE would be fine.

    Whether or not you are a collector, how do you feel about the Paragon Toys? Will you be grinding reputations? Why/Why not?
    I coulda cared less for the mounts in Legion myself, except the Hippogriff. I already have a couple hundred I don't use. Just give me the azurite, and maybe a little gold or something.

    Most of the collectors are after mounts mainly, so toys are something they may ignore more easily.

Toys, on the other hand, sometimes add an effect (there's even a few that have actually been useful), and pets of course are actually functional for pet battling.

    I can understand people who think the collection tabs are overall meaningless. I have a harder time relating to people who think ONE collection tab is worthwhile, while the others add nothing. That just seems like a weirdly inconsistent approach.
    Well I mean it is cooler to ride around on a dragon than it is a pony and and rare/unique mount is always desirable to many players for the 'cool' factor. Some toys can be really cool too when they have a connection to events (like the toy that plays Sylvanas lament of the highborne) but most are pointless things to play around with while waiting for a boss pull in a raid

    As for pets, unless you enjoy pet battles they are completely useless.

    lol so if it was mounts its "Waaah I'm forced to do stuff I don't want in this game because I'm a grown adult with no self control" and because it's not it's "waaah these rewards are dumb"

    No wonder Blizzard stopped giving a shit what players think, ya'll are a bunch of whiny children

    I'm on the fence about it honestly. If they have the same drop rate as Legions Paragon mounts then... no. Those were far too rare, and doing that much work for toys doesn't appeal to me. However, if the drop rate is noticeably better I'll probably be game for it.

  17. #117
    The chances on the ones in the Argussian/Army of Light chests were kinda ok. They were attainable in 5ish chests I think.
    The ones from the first Legion zones definitely are a no-go.

    (That said, I agree with the feeling that this should not be a thing at all. I grinded the rep to exalted. what else do you want from me, you random meaningless faction?

  18. #118
    Took me 80 tries to get the Highmountain mount. These paragon boxes can fuck right off, especially now that we aren't getting 1.5k rep tokens, and that you can't even get legendaries from them.

    Since they are random, no, I am absolutely not farming them. I did the Paragon caches a few times in Legion just kind of incidentally and got lucky on a couple mounts, but it feels soooooo hollow to not get anything good in a cache. Blizz are obsessed with RNG and it honestly ruined mount collection for me which I though was a fun thing to do until a couple expansions ago. Only the hardest to obtain mounts were RNG previously, now it's just every mount and it's not worth my time for some off-color of a normal mount.

    you’re probably right but there’s still a few who will collect anything they can xd
    I know someone who spent years getting nearly every toy in the game and now they will undoubtedly have to grind rep again for this. It’s just so unecessary why not make it all cageable pets?!
