    Apologies if this has been said elsewhere, but why does each kill grant so little progress toward completing the assault?

    1% progress on virtually everything you do makes finishing an assault on just one toon take forever.
    Further proving the point that this is by far the most alt UN-friendly patch in years, possibly in the game's history.

    You know you get also 4-5 quests with the assault?
    Most time iam at 70-80% when the quests are done.

    Or you could, ya know, do the events and rares and stuff around as well? I've never heard of a single person killing only regular mobs to "fill the bar", like -ever-.

    events which can at times take ~ 1 minute and require no killing reward a minimum of 15% progress and up to I think 30% for more difficult ones. rares reward more than they used (were 5%, now I think it's at least 10-15%) and chests reward 5% though for some reason not all assault seem to give some for them. download the handynotes BFA assault add-on for chest and rare locations and use the co-ords here every day for the event locations.

    on a good day depending on the events you can easily get it done in ~ 20 minutes per toon.

    What's the deal with these mantids. So many rares, and absolutely none of them drop anything for collection?

    The events around the assault give 10-15% progress (I don't remember exactly how much, but they give a lot), and killing rares also give extra progress, I believe.
    I did a Necromancer thing. Check it out! All feedback welcome!
    Update 08/17: I changed how the Bone spec's golem mechanic works, as well as some other minor changes.
    I also did a Bard thing! Questions, comments and ideas, all welcome!
    Update 09/02: Apparently the mods decided to merge my class concept thread with an existing one.

    Kinda wish there were more unique toys dropping off by rares otherwise they are meant for catching up ap for main+alts.

    Yeah this assault is completely useless...

    Don't focus on purely killing mobs to advance the meter. Look for stuff to click and do the dailies. It's not as long as you think
