    love it.
    Difference with rep grinds is that you can only do so much in one day. Least with this, you can grind as much as you want.

    But to be fair, even a full on free of charge account shared essence system wouldn't bring me back at this point, it's about a year too late to implement that.

    They have to make sure to improve everything for Shadowlands at this point. BFA's appeal is gone, well and over a long time ago. Last chance.

    No one's accepting shit and this take isn't nearly as smart as u think it is.



    For the people who were already enjoying game this makes it better, and for those who didn't enjoy it because alts were too grindy this solves that problem too.


    I have a high standard for Blizzard but I'm not going to whine when they put in a change that makes my gameplay significantly easier.

    Let us not pretend it's because they listen, as opposed to it being because that now, after several time of the feature being active and consumed by a good portion of the playerbase, it's time to stretch it out a bit further by squeezing those who were waiting to focus on alts.

    We are truly blessed for having a benevolent company like Blizzard looking after us.
    Finally someone who gets it.

    Surprise surprise people, obvious poorly designed flaws that should have been fixed before day 1 are also obvious to Blizzard. Disincentivizing people from playing the many different classes Blizzard worked so hard on as alts to stretch out existing content isn't exactly a genius move. But they do it to stretch out subs. It was literally the same thing in Legion when they finally allowed us to purchase the legendaries we wanted instead of leaving it all up to RNG... a few months before BFA released. It's not the Benevolent Blizzard listening to our valued feedback, mulling it over for months on end, then finally deciding to give it to us after a change of heart.

    Pretty clueless tbh. Why give something away for free when you can get the customer to pay for it.

    At the start of a patch, rerolling is harder, and it is intentional.
    They *always* relax requirements and nerf content as a patch goes on for a period of time. Granted I was hoping they stuck to their guns, making you have to do content to get currency rather than have everything automatically attainable is a compromise I'll accept.
    Why are you attempting to apply critical thinking to this situation? We all know the reason Blizzard didn't do it is because ION IS DA WRST GAEM DEVELLOPER OF ALL TIEM and the only reason they're bothering to change it is CUZ DA BEAN CUNTERS SAY THEY LOOSING TOO MANY SUBS TO PPL QUITTING CUZ GAEM SUX.

    Rejoice! They heard the feedback and actually made it happen in good time.

    Edit: Haha, what a shocker. Mostly negativity from the usual suspects.
    Oh well, don't utilize the update then. For those of us still wanting to play, this is pretty sweet.
    My rejoice knows no bounds. I almost didn't click the thread, fearing yet more cringe worthy click bait.

    I'm hoping it's more a desperate move to try and stop classic from destroying sl.

    5 Echoes of Ny’alotha are needed to purchase a rank 3 essence.

    Weekly Echoes of Ny’alotha cap is 3.

    Alts are finally fixed. Enjoy your new grind.

    This community fucking sucks. It's an improvement. Please. Just leave it at that.
    NEVER! Ysera and Alexstrasza could come out of the damn computer and give you a back rub and people would still bitch. Where is my Wrathion foot rub at huh Blizzard?! Don't expect anything positive from this community, just enjoy the change and maybe make a joke or two.
    Retail sucks. Classic sucks. No positivity, only negative feedback. Why is everybody so damn miserable? Must be somebody else's fault, it couldn't possibly be my INSANELY TOXIC ATTITUDE.

    As I was telling a friend of mine. It's too soon to be happy about it. For all we know it takes 20 pieces of currency for 1 rank 3. Then you get 1 per activity per week and you could farm up the Rank 3 you wanted faster in some cases.

    Are these confirmed to be the final numbers? Asking for a friend because I'm still waiting for my pitchfork to arrive.

    Now pit that "grind" against doing the 1-2-3 Essence-route with alts.

    "Listened to feedback" yea right . Like this wasn't part of their dastardly plan to begin with, but this makes people think they give a shit about your "feedback". If Ion had a mustache, he'd be twirling it right now like some evil mastermind.

    Blizz caves and gives us account wide rank 3 essences: reeeee Blizz doesn't listen

    Queen of Hamsters nailed it. There is no pleasing some of you.
    My greatest fear is that one day, my MMO-Champion ignore list will run out of space.
