    And that is perfectly fine and expected. They can't make stuff everyone likes. Perhaps Shadowlands will treat you different - if not then there are plenty of good games out there!

    That's why games companies ignore the people that bitch nonstop and buy it anyway. Their feedback literally means nothing. Then they're surprised when they get ignored because their feedback is meaningless.

    Thanks again for your opinion. People might agree with you but it's still an opinion. It is objectively dishonest of you to present your opinion as a fact. You should stop doing it.

    Can I get a source in that please? Your speaking as if it is fact. Or is it just your opinion that only morons say things that you don't like.

    I think that people get too tied up in their own little bubble. They talk to 7 people who agree with them and all of a sudden it's the "majority" of us think this. This very site is proof that almost everyone can dislike BFA but they will fight for pages on why they hate it.

    they made a very BS flaw with this system.

    Back in legion at the start of the expansion, be it on our mains or alts, we all got the quest chain to get an artifact weapon, which we needed in order to advance though the game. This wasn't bad because we'd just be starting out on a fresh lv100 character, and each artifact weapon quest was unique, making it feel less like a chore to get it, and plus because it was at lv100 he got experience to continue leveling whole getting the essential thing we needed.

    With the cloak, they Think their doing the same thing, how we can't really do 8.3 content without the cloak, the visions and all that crap. I did the full quest chain, and got my mains cloak up to some decent corruption resistance, so any corrupted gear I've gotten is mitigated.

    But this is where they f**ked up. Nobody minds doing stuff like this on their mains. However, having to do this on your alts, having to do the Exact same ques chain every time on another alt (unlike the different artifact chains in legion) it becomes very tedious after the third time. Even when you can skip some of it now, its still an hour or more of your time you need to put to it, just to unlock a feature you need to order to play 8.3.

    And some might try and argue 'well you don't really need all your alts to have the cloak'. Wrong. Because as I found out, even on casual alts, as in just doing something different on another class for a break from playing your main, the new system has made gearing alts at 120 a trial, because an alt can now get corrupted gear from doing dailies, even if they haven't done any of the 8.3 content yet, you still get corrupted gear, and without the cape to mitigate the corruption it makes playing an alt all the more difficult, forcing you to go though the same bs quest chain to get a cape on an alt your probably never get past lv1 on the cape corruption protection.

    There wasn't any kind of bs like this in legion. You could just play your main and raid and gear and do whatever you wanted, and then casually play an alt to pass the time in enjoying another class for a break. But now, your being forced into a monotonous system that died in the water 3-4 alts ago.

    It is not that far wrong. As least from my perspective. As for evidence of this views, this forum can provide some.

    I recall during Legion people were complaining about the Legendaries they were receiving because either they were not BiS or did not improve their characters.

    Then there is the ongoing arguments about loot drops form LFR. Some consider there should no rewards because people who did them did not need them because they do not "raid".

    I swear , 99% of your posts are just you bitching about what other people post .
    And I couldn't tell you how many of your posts are about anything, because I couldn't care less.
    My greatest fear is that one day, my MMO-Champion ignore list will run out of space.

    It may be pretty easy for people to miss that the 8.2 quests start with regular quests and that they're necessary in order to make the 8.3 stuff available. Players who were looking for the legendary quest-line would probably look for legendary quality quests first instinctively and especially if people are working on alts or freshly boosted characters may have ended up focusing on the wrong quest-lines to proceed to the Cloak, even though the quest log will tell players to do the 8.2 normal-quality quests.

    Unless you can provide sub numbers (which you can't) or an adequate representation of the mood in the playerbase (which you can't, MMO-C does not represent even a fraction and draws in a lot more whiners then anything else), then yes it IS your opinion. You have nothing to support it that would make it more then that. But sure keep believing in your opinion. Saying it is anything more then that is simply a lie though.
    While I too have no sub numbers to share I am 99% certain that the end of WoD saw a ton less activity then what we are seeing at the moment, considering there was an actual draught of content with no WQs, no M+, no new Raid... but that is just my opinion.

    As for the cloak article. It is kinda obvious. It is meant for casual players checking 8.3 those that do not constantly visitIcy Veins, Wowhead and MMO-C and it is timed now because next week the last wing of LFR opens and you cannot do the N'zoth fights without the cloak. Even though I am sure there will be people zoning into it without the cloak and wipe the groups.

    Blizzard (obviously) knows the level of all legendary cloaks on HER game, so this poll is just another try to promote this absurd patch.

    once it got to the point i needed 8 pages, i stopped giving a crap. seriously.

    at this point, at the rate they're nerfing it.... there's no reason for me to stay on top of it. especially considering my corruption RNG isn't very good and what few items I do have, are still under 40 corruption.

    I've heard rumblings, ONLY in the forums about RNG making you a god. But hasn't RNG always been a huge factor in that scenario....

    in AB, for sure. but i haven't played BGs really since Wintergrasp. But Lumber Mill comes to mind when slow fall can be a good thing.

    My husband still doesn't have his cloak, mostly because he's still finishing the 8.2 content. With the last wing of RaidFinder coming out soon, I imagine it's important that people know about the cloak.

    This is even worse for the neck. I really didn't like that quest chain, and I even skipped it on my mage. He can't do the main plotlines in BfA zones. He can't queue for dungeons. He's just been leveling up on side quests, but I'll be damned if I end up getting ANOTHER neck.

    It's a complaint that is rarely voiced these days.
    Even if people say "there's nothing to do", then it usually means "There's nothing to do i haven't done X times already" or "There's nothing to do that i enjoy".

    Developers should obviously see past this complaint and not frantically add content into the game so people have something to do for the sake of doing it.

    The problem of this questchain isn't its length, nor its design (altough it could've been better), it's that a lot of people aren't that happy with the game, so anything that's not super fun gets amplified by a large degree.

    I mean, at the end of the day it's just a 1-2h chain, that's not much.
    However, you don't solve the underlying problem of it if you just drop the cloak into people's bag, then they are most likely too bored by dailies and visions in order to upgrade it, what do you want to do then, drop the upgrade item into people's inventory as well.
    Continuing this train of thought leads to a point where the game plays itself.

    I don't think you can currently view at a single point or system within WoW and say "that's the reason why it's not fun", there are people that are unhappy with the overall state of the game, which however leads some people attempting to isolate the issue onto this one problem.

    That aside, i also believe that a not too insignificant portion of the player has become completely detached from the focus on <current content> as well as power progression and simply treats the game as some sort of massive collectible game.

    The questline is fine for my main, albeit massively grindy for alts.

    the things that annoy me most are -

    1) The graphical effect of corruption. I wish there was a way to hide this and don't want it ruining my transmog for the next year

    2) A way to remove corruption before even starting the quests. Alts can get corrupted gear to drop from all sorts of sources, but until they've completed the whole quest chain in its near entirety there's no way to even remove the effects. Tried to level and gear up my Hunter - Currently she's so corrupted that if she tries to even move she basically just explodes.
