    I don’t expect little Timmy to do that for a few more weeks

    The mount being 100k means 20 mask clears

    Not too tough
    to rush mount is not tough,but after getting all upgrades and sockets,idk

    I will buy a Heroic version carry for the last boss/mount. Tag the boss and die without the cloak mattering. I can see the last fight and not grind any cloak quests. The gear isn't an incentive for me either. I can do my activities with a non cloak mid 440's item level on all 14 toons. My wife upgrades her cloak every week and she doesn't appear to enjoy doing it very much. WoW is a nice game that allows all of us to pursue different goals with differing efforts. Stay safe!

    Seems like your wife is doing something she does not enjoy in her free time. Why?

    I have I think 4 more upgrades left and it’s at 7.4k

    So figure about 35k to 50k

    The sockets are something only high level players really care about

    So 30 runs worth
    Super casual means 10 weeks

    Again if you go for sockets you go for more masks

    She is a focused individual who sees that reputation goal line. She has just gotten her 100 exaulted reputations and she sees the cloak as necessary to grind rep for pets, toys, and mounts. Her end result is worth the drudgery/annoyance of Purple World but it appears to not be an enjoyable time. Conversely, I have a friend that enjoys constantly testing his playing abilities by doing hard content. Failure is just fuel to try again, change some things, and overcome whatever was stopping him. Both have the same level cloaks every week but enjoyment is not shared.

    I just don't get why everything has to be tied to raiding?

    Why can't we have new systems just be their own thing without locking legendary items to them or extremely powerful items like sockets?

    I honestly think it would be better if the game included a diversity of content without making a daily chore for raiders.

    This is the problem I've run into in both Legion and BFA, and what's killed my desire to play alts, which in turn has killed my desire to play the game.

    I get bored with one play style, which is why I've played with a full stable of alts since Wrath. In Legion and now BFA, each alt I play feels like they are so far behind that it's overwhelming to think about what it takes to get them up to speed, and feel like playing a different alt, that first alt now feel neglected.

    WoD was the first to hit with the unlock fatigue, of redo'ing quest & story lines on every single alt for all the character specific stuff to unlock, but if I recall, once unlocked, I didn't feel like my alts were being left behind if I wasn't doing dailies, etc. on those alts. WoD was the last time I logged in to do stuff "for fun", because I didn't have anything that felt mandatory, so I'd do pet battles, and transmogs run and other stuff that didn't progress my character. Since Legion with my alts always feeling like they are losing out if I'm not leveling the artifact Weapons, or the essences now, and what have you, it felt like I was logging in to do stuff I had to do, versus in the past, doing stuff I wanted to do.

    This is it in a nutshell. I spend 3-4 hours every single day just doing WQs and raiding 9 hours a week. I feel fatigued regularly after doing WQs and I hate it. After I'm done with them I just want to log off and do something else rather than spending my time in game to do something fun, like examples you gave being transmog runs, pet battles, or whatever.

    If you are spending 3 to 4 hours doing just world quests you are doing them wrong or purposefully doing way more then needed. Of course you will be burned out. It is always funny when people to things that will lead to burnout and then complain they are burned out.

    I can kinda get it. The rewards from the content are massive and can't be obtained from anywhere else except I think maybe farming raid trash? (Do memento mobs drop them each time they are killed or once a reset?)

    Those sockets are a extremely powerful reward. I just think blizzard finally hit bedrock on what their players are willing to care about this patch and its come as a shock to them.

    I just want a "skip all the 8.3 introduction stories and go directly to the point" button. Did it 3 times already, I can't anymore (I saw we can skip the moshugan palace scenario at least...)

    Depends on how many alts you are trying to maintain. If you are trying to maintain your main and a couple alts, that could easily take up 3-4 hours doing world dailies.

    In WotLK, I had every class at max level and able to pug into ICC. Each day when I would log in I would look across all those characters and pick which class felt like fun to play that day. Since Legion it doesn't feel like I can maintain more than 1-2 alts.

    Yeah, no wonder why you think WoW is shit. It's clear as day now.

    3-4 hours everyday doing World Quests. Oh brother...

    Essence drops and trinkets. But of course the most popular trinket drops off the first and easiest boss in Nyalotha (honestly, Skitra is the easiest boss, but since it's LFR we're talking about, where tanks don't know how to communicate, Wrathion is the easiest for that mode.)

    There are three skips:

    Both HoO parts and the Mogu'shan Palace part.

    But yeah, it's obnoxious on alts.

    Wait wait wait. First skip is with Magni in HoO. Then with Raden and MSP. The third would be the Mini vision you are supposed to fail due no cloak?

  16. #136
    That one can't be skipped, as far as I can tell. Nor can the followup where you succeed with the cloak.

  17. #137
    It will be funny come Carapace and N'zoth LFR when people get insta MC'd because they don't have a cloak. I wonder if blizzard will just remove the sanity mechanic entirely from those fights or make the cloak not required.

    They're trying to bring back people by saying there's a new legendary to get.

    They completely missunderstood that legendaries are supposed to be special and almost no one should have them. This cloak should literally be a white item.

    I suppose you can't even enter the last wing if you don't own the cloak. (I hope..?)

I refuse to have to do the same grind over and over, when they take an excessive amount of time. I want to have at least a little bit of a life outside of the game too and if I'm spending(even if it did only take an hour per alt cloak) 10 hours doing alt cloaks, then another 5-10 hours per week to gather currency to upgrade the cloaks, then having to spend ridiculous amounts of time on essences I'd literally have less of a life I currently do and would likely be sleeping less too.
    Nah there actually 2 skips. One as you described and the other is Ra-den titan guy. You just talk to him a 2nd time after he points you to his scenario thing and lets you skip it. Then you get ported back to the chamber.
