    Actually, you're skipping a considerable part of it. Which you didn't notice because you never actually played it. But go ahead, live on in your little dreamworld where the only goal in a game is to get through it as quickly as possible and have the least possible amount of fun doing it.

    So, question. I was relatively late in beta and I don't want to overindulge so I am not pressing with renown or anything like that. Do we have any idea what is involved in the different max level renown questlines? I think the Maruuk have none but the rest do.
    Dragonscale Expedition has one questline in two parts called The Sealed Titan Facility. Is this about Tyrhold, the Vault or something else entirely?
    Iskara just has one in the Chieftain's Duty and I will presume that's just more tuskar lore (which is welcome)
    Valdrakken Accord is the one that is likely the most important though. We have The Silver Purpose and The Garden of Secrets. Two different questlines. Second one COULD be the one about Ysera? First one should be something that people who did the beta early have probably seen already by now.

    Honestly though does balance matter all that much unless you're interested in PVP?

    PS: Obviously I don't mean balance as in getting your class completely nerfed to the point it's doing fuck all damage compared to the rest, but more like if it's nerfed to the point where it's not OP compared to the rest.

    Yes? Specs that are considered awful in the meta will struggle to find groups for anything.

    But isn't that more of a community issue? Surely there's groups that just allow for anything unless they are racing or something.

    Pretty much. So many M+/raid leaders who just glance over weekly DPS ranking and form their judgement based on that.
    Sometimes, the light of the moon is a key to other spaces. I've found a place where, for a night or two, the streets curve in unfamiliar ways. If I walk here, I might find insight, or I might be touched by madness.

    Does it matter? Are we really challenging the idea that there should be at least a reasonable level of balance among classes? While the meta will give an advantage and a disadvantage to people trying to find a group, the community is not insane, it's just very sensitive to differences. You are not going to be outright denied unless the balance is very bad. Which it usually isn't because effort is made to keep it within reasonable bounds. Are you really advocating it shouldn't matter?

    Seems like you never played Feral. Or Survival pre-9.2.

    I'm just saying it's probably a minority that actually takes that stuff into account and rest play whatever they want. Besides, complain about it to Blizz for a while and they will change it up.

    I guess for Survival. I did play Feral. You had to have a lot more rating than needed but you could find groups. And again, it is because the spec sucked. So yeah, balance is pretty important.

    I mean sure it is a minority. It is a minority that raids and does M+ too.

    Now that you say the stuff about the sounds, I'm also not a fan of that weird "glossy" filter the dragonriding mounts have sometimes. It's ok if they would get them during the flight but imo it looks ugly when they are on the earth.

    Btw I keep reporting these because they are all over the place, they go live as they are far too often and they ruin any sense of immersion while questing.
    The majority of voiced discussions I've seen so far have fucked up timing with the NPCs constantly talking over each other. If you encounter them, please report them as well. Seriously I'd rather have slightly akward pauses than whatever this is and I don't even get how they can be that poorly hooked in the first place. Like, basic addition?

    I always found that a problem with the NPC dialogues in WoW. Especially when coming from other games where that kind stuff is polished and is pretty smooth.

    While it sucks it is harder to get good gear from M+ now, I feel like it is a bit more fair now between M+ and raiding. A 15 is by far easier than killing a mythic raid boss and I think timing 20's is a bit more on par.
    It sucks, but it's fair.

    Honestly for me this ruins the immersion so much. I tend to take time off when expacs launch yet I never rush. I'll walk if the NPCs walk, read everything, check every interactible and ofc I want to listen to dialogue. And it just messes up immersion so much.

    Do we know if the 28 Nov release date is Sunday -> Monday at midnight, or Monday -> Tuesday?

    Also do we know if it's a global launch? Trying to plan things out.

    Nvm found an article. It's midnight between Monday and Tuesday if you're in Sweden like me.

    Assuming the leak is real and that the pre patch arrives on October 25th, we're probably going to get an announcement on Mon/Tues to give players the usual 2 weeks notice.

    It sucks, but it's fair.
    generally, i have the exact same opinion as you.

    but in reality, it drives me away from the game. here is why:

    i am a pug player since years. my weekly shedule is difficult and there is low chance i will ever again return to organized raiding or guild. so, let’s take this as a given fact. when i play wow, i play pugs.

    and there is where the problem shows up. the SOLE reason i played second half BfA and all of SL only M+ (and nearly no raiding at all) is the fact: i can do something, without wasting my time. when you join heroic pug raids, for every wipe oy boss, you have to wait 20mins to fill up grp with ppls again (cause every try 1-5 ppls leave). at some times you need 3 days, just to clear 1 HC raid. you wait 80% of the time and play 20% of the time. pug raiding, designed as it is, is such a giant waste of time. additionally i can not even do quests, while grp is formed. because of that idiotic you-are-in-a-raid 2005 rule.

    in m+, in contrast, i can do quests while grp is formed. i am not standing in Oribos and waiting. and even if the grp sucks, or you have a leaver, you at least played the game until that point. i was not just standing around in the dungeon, for 20 mins, again and again. also, when the grp breaks or the dungeon is over, i can find another grp and be ready to play the game in a dungeon again, in like 5 minutes. not another 20 mins, like when waiting for the next raid.

    in short: playing pug raids, in contrast to m+, is soooo much more of wasting time without actually playing the game. that’s the reason why i prefer m+, (as long as there is no desserteur debuff in pug raids, or something else that counters raid hopping). its just way more „playing the game“ and way less „wasting your time and standing around“.

    and here i see the problem with the upcoming changes: it directs m+ more into some „get grp, try, declare it as not good enough at 10% of dungeon, leave, repeat“ direction. it is still way better than pug raiding, but it will move it more into a „quickshot try and repeat“ direction imo.

    summary: the changes counters directly, what made pug m+ attractive (or way more attractive than pug raiding) to me and others. and therefore i don’t like it. even when i have in general the same opinion as quoted poster.
