    Lol wtf are you talking abt. I play a few dif classes and on my hunter im obviously nightfae. You don't have to choose to be offended. Never claimed I was elite or that nightfae players can't be elite.

    Just arguing that a slightly higher % of casuals went nightfae compared to other covenants.
    But you're basing it on... what, exactly? Why are people somehow more drawn to "cute and pretty" (I think NF is boring) when they're casual players...? That ties uncomfortably into your line about kids and women...

    People are either casuals and pick based on cosmetics/story, or they care more about performance and pick based on the content they want to excell in.

    A casual player, man, woman, child, picking Night Fae is not somehow "more casual!" than someone going edgelord or generic good guys... It's just such a weird position to have.

    Its also the cute and "pretty" covenant that kids and a lot of women will love.

    Nightfae also has podtender. A cheat life mechanic to forgive the casual for not avoiding a mechanic.

    How about campaign missions? They can cheese it with 1 follower and 4 troop to do lvl 60 missions.

    They got the earliest mount.

    They get the earliest double potency slot.

    They get convoke which is the easiest I Win button up to 1500ish rating to ensure nightfae players get at least 207 conquest gear. The podtender in pvp is easy to counter for 1500+ players but not in lower brackets. The hp bar doesn't even show up unless u look 100ft in the sky.

    If you like this covenant then I'm all for you enjoying it. Idc. But its pretty easy to see all the advantages this covenant has.
    Sounds like someone grasping at straws to justify not picking Night Fae :P
    I have enough of EA ruining great franchises and studios, forcing DRM and Origin on their games, releasing incomplete games only to sell day-1 DLCs or spill dozens of DLCs, and then saying it, and microtransactions, is what players want, stopping players from giving EA games poor reviews, as well as deflecting complaints with cheap PR tricks.

    I'm not going to buy any game by EA as long as they continue those practices.

    If you read it a certain way, i talk abt fairies. You could take offense and think I'm hating on the fairy race lol. If you can see all sorts of isms, its not too much of a stretch to think its racist too lol

    I am not speaking in any sort of absolutes. Do you think men women and kids are 100% the same? I think there are slight % differences in things they are innately attracted to, or slight % differences in the levels at which they play. That was my only point.

    If you took 100 men, 100 women, 100 kids, do you think they would have the exact same split when looking at the content they do? If I said 25% of men play noncasually (define that how you want, heroic or mythic raids maybe? +15 keys?), would you believe that 25% of women play noncasually? 25% of kids play noncasually?

    Either way, my main point is nightfae has more benefits. Nightfae is the "pretty" covenant, and those picking covenants based off of pretty zones and not to minmax, are more likely to play nightfae.
    I wouldn't say either way because we have no data for this kind of nonsense assumption. The playerbase is definitely majority male but there's no reason to think that the same percentage of each gender doesn't play at similar levels. I definitely don't get the "kids" playing at a different level argument. What exactly do you define as "kids"? It's not exactly uncommon for younger teens to be better than a lot of adults playing the game either.

    And I hope you can treat people without sexism ageism elitism and every other -ism you certainly have in you.
    WoW forums in a nutshell:
    m8 i've been around since Feb 2005, I know it all.
    i outgrew the games playerbase.
    So I was using a gold dupe hack. I don't know why i was banned for this. It is so unfair.
    People need an incentive to play content. "Its fun!" is simply not enough.
    Btw iam multi glad so plz dont tell me how to play, kkthxbye

    The most recommendation is "play what you like" I would imagine. Either way, we don't know because we don't have that kind of data. Feel free to provide it.

    How many women are in method or other WF guilds? How many kids? How about how many women or kids are in your standard raiding guild? How about your leveling guild? How abt discord?

    Its easy to see more in the latter.

    Id define kids as 13 and under or anywhere around there

    I do. I treat everyone with the same respect. But you'd be blind not to notice trends. Treat ppl as individuals but you can still see groups

    Wtf is this even trying to prove...? Or is it just a perfect example of fragile masculinity on display? You're reminding me of the people arguing why women couldn't be astronauts based on how many there had been up to that point in time.

    How about just accepting that lumping women and children into the same category and claiming that they're casuals and will all go for the "pretty" stuff, is a dumb hill to die on.

    My only point in this thread was that nightfae is the covenant with the most positives. That it is also picked more by casuals. That casuals (by this i mean ppl not concerned about minmaxing and choosing "The Best" convenant for their spec) are more likely to pick nightfae because of the aesthetic.

    As for the quote in question, they want me to explain why I think there is s slightly higher % of women and kids that play casually, compared to men

    And I'm asking you why casuals would be more inclined to pick "pretty". You haven't answered with any sort of logic behind that reasoning.

    If looking at what people went mental over from a purely aesthetic point of view, Venthyr and Necrolord were at the top. NOT Night Fae. Casuals are casuals and will pick whatever they like. There's nothing to say that Night Fae is a more "casual friendly" cosmetic option than the others. WoW players tend to be pretty damned edgy or all about the "good guys".

    Because casual players play for fun and congregate in areas they like. The common sentiment across all forums and in game chat, is that ardenweald is the most aesthetically pleasing. You don't have to agree and I even stated it as an unpopular opinion.

    But the stats do show that nightfae is picked the most. You can hypothesize any reason you'd like as to why that's so.

    Thos who have gotten MH + OH as night fae: are you paladins or shamans, or something else? Because my shaman is night fae and I couldn't even pick staff, so I'm guessing paladins and shamans are MH+Shield users strictly in blizz's eyes. I have a night fae druid as well but still need to catch up with her. My venthyr priest had to choose between MH or OH, but staves are MH so I picked that obviously.

    Ah, so you're not saying that Night Fae is more casual, but rather that casuals just tend to pick it, you're saying that casuals are just congregating to it based on what you've seen.

    That's different from my experience, as I've seen so many polls and know so many people having picked Revendreth as the most aesthetically pleasing whilst shunning Night Fae for being "uwu"... whatever the hell that means. But I can respect that your experience is different on that matter. Ardenweald was my favourite zone for its story until I got to Revendreth. As for the "women and children line" part of the discussion, I'll just choose to move on from that as a walking proof to its inaccuracy.

    Somehow, this does not surprise me. They get extra reps, most new easy to get mounts require a night fae to get and so on. Tbh it feels like these are designed by different teams and the night fae team did better.

    I could 100% believe that different teams did each zone and covenant. The Revendreth team seems to have a boner for annoying orientation and unintuitive layouts.

    Yes, ty for trying to understand my post. The minmaxers likely picked what the guide told them to pick. There are excellent players in all covenants and you can't tell anything about anyone based on the covenant they picked. But it is of my opinion, that a higher % of casuals choose Nightfae. It is also my opinion that nightfae has a lot more positives to it than other covenants. My conspiracy theory is relating to whether or not blizz assumed it would be the most popular among casuals and whether or not this is the reason it has more positives when compared to other covenants.

    I really like revendreth too but it has a lot of terrain / elevation to navigate around. With the ppl I've seen discussing zones / covenants, this is a major reason they picked ardenweald over Revendreth.

    I believe Blizzard sees only Shamans as MH+Shield users. I finished my Kyrian campaign as Paladin and got to choose 2h or MH/OH. Shamans artifact weapons were also MH+OH or MH+Shield in Legion.
