    I don’t mind the table missions all that much, it’s a mindless system that I wouldn’t care if gone or stayed but yes to the rest. Those grinds are not fun at all. Bonus rolling and getting some azerite rock isn’t rewarding..

    Not sure what grinds? BfA only had one grind - and that was for the bumblebee mount, and that was far from mandatory content.

    The rest - I've played since day 1 of BfA with no other grinds, so I'm unsure what grinds you refer to?

    Not everyone exposed to the new Corona Virus(SARS-CoV-2) will catch it, not everyone who catches it will develop the disease (COVID-19), not everyone who develops the disease will get sick, a small percentage of those who get sick will be very ill, and a small percentage of those who get very ill will die.

    Don't panic.

    STOP it already. All of these things sucked so bad, and are just such a stupid pointless grind. Go back to gearing up through Dungeons first, then Raids second. You want to gear up, you run a Normal dungeon, then get better gear in a Heroic dungeon, then better gear again in a Mythic dungeon. You want even better gear, run a Heroic Raid, and you want the BiS gear you run Mythic Raids. That's it. No fucking AP grind, no Artifact weapon. No Corruption bullshit.

    Have tokens or badges that drop off bosses in Raids, that you then purchase gear from Raid NPC vendors in the main city.

    Design the class and specs so good from the start of the new expansion, that none of these stupid grindy systems are even needed whatsoever, go back to something similar to the MoP and WoD class type builds and systems
    Quit then. No one will care. Just go

    And Azerite Power has also been there before Artifact Power existed so I am not sure I see what you are trying to say. There will still be an AP Grind whether they call it Anima Power, Azerite Power or Artifact Power.
    There are 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary and those who don't..

    I agree, be gone with all these grinds, the game was way more interesting without them.

    I'm not sure you know what you are asking for...

    Essentially you will be left with what WoD was.
    OKish classes, good raids and no other impactfull endgame-content.

    Honestly; the WoW-playerbase seems to have an abused-housewife syndrome. You dislike all these features sooo much, but you still keep doing them.

    I really wish people would stop wanting reasons beyond finding things fun innately to be convinced to repeat the same content 120716253 times in the faceroll overworld. But here we are.


    I mean if you're chasing rewards as a motivation to play a game, you're already kinda sad IMO. Wanting to get the satisfaction of advancement while you do the same dumb content over and over again sounds like you wish real life worked that way so you could keep flipping burgers and eventually wind up as a millionaire. Nah. Gitgud, move past the burger flipping, or stay the same.
    This post actually breaks my brain.
    Dislikes repetitive content but wants people to just spend their free time farming mats instead of enjoying a player power progression system where they can pick and choose what types of content they enjoy. :thinking:

    Motivated by rewards from a game is normal... and you don't need to do the same content over and over again unless you think heroic dungeons are the same thing as +15's or LFR = Mythic raid. If you do think that I suspect you just aren't good enough to do the harder versions and want an excuse to not try.

    It will not be ap grind, it will be anima grind. And you'll feel forced to do boring unfun repetitive content each week to reach that cap.

    And yeah they lie all the time. We just had war3 reforged remember?

Eventually we found ourselves with the infancy of post max level leveling with the followers in WoD, and you know the rest.

    Unfortunately, if you don't like this idea, it won't be going anywhere. Blizz has grown fond of the idea of setting up these additional leveling systems, as it technically allows them more knobs for fine tuning.
    They need to give us something like paragon levels from Diablo then. Not these moronic overpowered abilities that the entire class is balanced around and if you dont have them you get shafted.
    If what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Then I should be a god by now.

    I dont have a “whole” day to play like you said, Im not a kid without any responsabilities and instead of progressing my key Im choosing between Uldum or Vale dailies or anything else.

    In those “boring” expansions you could just log in and play the game the way you wanted to. You didnt have to farm all the crap just to try a new character.
    You don't have to fucking farm anything. Stop acting like if you are not super up to date you'll be useless. You can easily blue parse with level 35 neck and no essences.

    Shit you're not limit or method. So stop acting like you have to be level 80 super hard core to get anywhere.

    well we will still have an AP grind in Shadowlands but apparently it is being capped so you can only get so much a week from, hopefully, a variety of sources (player agency). the mission table isn't that bad. we won't be getting anything resembling tier gear until 9.1 at the earliest. essences and corruption will be gone, this is their final expansion which (hopefully) means that warforging and titanforging is gone for good as well.

    But all the other stuff I listed in the first post here are completely toxic horrific terrible game features that need to be stripped away permanently and nothing new like them whatsoever ever introduced again to WoW.

    You want to gear up you run dungeons you want even better gear you Raid. End of story that's it No other ways to get epic gear.

    And if Blizzard does their job properly you shouldn't need these stupid fucking bullshit add-on systems that help your character. They need to design the class and spec correctly from the start and none of this garbage is needed.
    Sounds pretty dull as raids are incredibly boring. They should get rid of them altogether or just have one each expansion so they can focus on literally anything else. How you can like raiding the same thing thing over amd over but also complain about any other sort of grind being boring is beyond me. Especially going through the trash in raids. It's all the same every expansion, just different paint job for most part.

    It's fine to have something to grind for in casual content to slowly increase the power of your character. I really wish raidloggers stopped trying to design the game for people who actually want to play it.

    Once you remove AP and potential similar grinds, you are only left with legacy content for mounts, pets and toys. That and dungeons+raids. No thanks
    The whole day? Get a job or play a different game.

    Did OP actually watch Blizzcon? I doubt it. Or maybe he did and still wanted to just bitch.
    WC3RF says hi. Nothing in ALPHA/BETA is confirmed..
    Let's look at the test results. You are a horrible person. It says right here, you're a horrible person. We weren't even testing that. Don't let the horrible person thing get you down though. Science justified your parents choice to abandon you.

    Congratulations you play a lot. I haven’t gone crazy on it ether and low 70s now. Still not fun, not exciting, not anything I’d like to see returned.

    This is cute. Reminds me of my little kids praying in bed before they go to sleep. It will also pretty much have the same result. It also ends nicely with the bolded raging...same as when my kids wake up and find Santa didn't bring them what they wanted.

    Yeah...Blizzard is just waiting for topics like this and go "You know what...this guy is right..let's change everything"

    If they want retail to be an actually good MMO, they need to remove Mythic and LFR difficulties. Not a popular opinion, but it's the only way they can make modern raiding interesting again.

    you can get everything you want but than they will scrap mythic raiding, so that gear is accesibly for everybody and we will again have to do dailies for rip grinds to buy shoulder enchants. was that so much better?^^
