    No, it's not. The issue is players having no patience. You can't even finish Sanctum upgrades till end of March anyway. You only need more than 5k anima per week if you want to buy cosmetics on top of that. 5k doesn't even require doing all world quests, nevermind anything else.

    It isn't. War resources was just table missions. Anima gates covenant progression and a ton of cosmetic stuff.

    Can you link to a post in this thread where I'm in rage mode? Otherwise, it seems like you're attacking the poster again like that other guy, and that just makes me a sad panda.

    I raid, run M+, do my torghast, my covenant daily, do world boss, andtry to keep my table running (Venthyr here so gimped on table). How are you getting 5k a week with no world quests? I usually get my 1K Friday give or take a day.

    I don’t really care but 5K?

    If you do the weekly dungeon quests (God knows I don't), they're 175 anima apiece, and the weekly PvP quests (which I also don't do) are 250 and 500 anima respectively. So that's a good bit to start off, but it won't get you anywhere near 5k unless you grind WQs.

    So to get anything beyond the sanctum upgrades you need to do all the anima WQ's every day for 6 days a week...
    I don't think that is 'nothing'. Especially when WQ's are boring, tedious and a bunch of them only give 1x35 token.

    Why do dungeons and raids drop such pitiful amounts? why do WQ's with 1 token reward even exist?
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    2. no its not a daily, but it is an option, so any one specific day you can do the world boss for 250 anima
    3. you seem to have done some of the anima world quests cause uhhhhh.....

    not including world boss there is 945 anima up. as you can see, 140,105,105,105,105,70,105,70,70,70
    and its even more then 945 cause im in warmode meaning a bonus 10% anima.

    "For Necrolord, I'm getting at least one quest for 500 Anima almost every day, often times 2 quests for 1000. I'd say on average it's probably 700 Anima per day. For Venthyr, I've seen 4 or 5 quests that gave any Anima at all in 2 weeks, and it's only 1 to 3 pieces of 35.

    For the last 5 days, I wrote down exactly what I was offered: Necrolord 500, 1000, 1000, 500, 1000 ; Venthyr 0, 0, 105, 105, 0. That's 4000 Anima compared to 210."
    yes and? that only equaled to 5000 anima, as each time you did the quest it removed the reward, meaning once you did all 10 dailies you no longer got anima.

    but here you go

    todays world quests equal 945 anima.

Could it be higher if I cleared all anima world quests? Sure. But I'm spending my game time on the things I enjoy doing, WQs aren't really a part of that, especially to get like 1% or 2% of the anima I need for the next upgrade.

    Now if anima is supposed to be a WQ only thing, I'd be fine with it. But it drops from most content, so it seems to be supposed to be obtainable by any gameplay style. It's just that raids and M+ don't reward any decent and consistent amount of anima for the time you spend in them, and Torghast gives none at all.

    945 available today from just world quests. s0 very easy for you to get 1k in a single day, do all these thats 945, if you then kill some rares give 35 each, or even just have warmode on like i do and boom youve got 1k.

And no, many take way longer than 2m. Actually, i can only think of the rings one being that fast if you do it right. Those are rarities and you know it. Oh and lets not forget you have to do that 4x if you want the cosmetics from all covenants.
    Hey if you want to waste your life like that, go on ahead. No chance i will do that. I'd rather stop playing.
    Thankfully, i don't care as i hate AP grinding and no cosmetic is worth that time commitment.

    But, i also know Blizz will make changes to it.
    that is not how world quests work buddy im sorry.
    all world quests have ATLEAST a 24 hour timer.
    yes world quests spawn every TWELVE HOURS not 6 hours.
    but they spawn and will last until that time the next day, meaning as long as you log on and do your world quests once a day you are fine.
    if you want to get the most out of a single day you can do them all, wait a few hours then do the new ones, but you dont need to, ALL WORLD QUESTS (except the pvp quest) have atleast 24 hours on them. (the pvp world quests are every 6 hours)

    also there is many that only take 2 mins lets look right now
    colelct 10 anima cones, yeah literally 2 minutes
    ride a flayedwing, yep 2 minutes
    kill 3 mobs on the back of flayed wings, yep 2 mins
    kill 1 mob and carry its slime 2 feet, actually literally 20 seconds
    speak to 5 owls, and 5 people, yep 2 mins
    carry 5 anima cones to the middle, yep literally 2 mins

    Are you seriously too dense to see the disconnect here?
    Because once you have high level followers, and you have unlocked all the upgrades for your base, you are gunna have 0 use for anima other then those cosmetics.

    when expac first launched i did every single anima world quest for the first week, then after that only the ones that were 70, then once i hit 35k i only did the ones that give atleast 100, and thats how i am now, and im constantly at anima cap, even after cosmetics.

    i mean if you ACTUALLY PLAY THE GAME and do the anima world quests, you will freely be able to buy all the cosmetics and upgrades as you unlock them, if you take your time and only do some of the big world quests it might take a few more months, but it 100% wont take 2 years to get them all.

    not true, i mean close, but not true.
    4k is the TOP and that is only head, shoulders, and chest, the rerst goes 3k, and then down to 2, then 1.5k, weapons do cost 3.5k aswell, and so do backs.

    Are you so sure about this? Mine seem to spawn about every 5 hours, look at the time left on your picture, and I looked at mine. It seems like they are close to 5 hr increments

    8 hrs left
    13 hrs left
    17 hrs left
    22hrs left

    This is consistent with what I see in game.

    2hrs 58M
    7hrs 46M
    12hrs 54M
    17hrs 22M
    22hrs 10M


    But you are right I have 875 anima available right now (Did WB this week already)

    Yeah sorry i was wrong on the 6 hours, that is a new thing, im used to BFA where there was only 2 spawn points for world quests, the daily reset, and then 12 hours later.


    in shadowlands there is new world quests spawned every 6 hours.
    but they all last ATLEAST 24 hours. which means as long as you log on once a day yo ucan do them all.

    also only 875 for you? odd, for my its 945, and thats WITHOUT world boss.


    oh its the 70 from the pvp world quest, yeah so if you turn on warmode there is an extra 70 anima in ardenweald for you (again warmode also gives you extra anima, so if you want anima, warmode is a buff)

    Doesn't require all world quests, not doesn't require world quests at all. And if you need till Friday, you're doing something wrong. I've yet to have a week where i don't finish it immediately on reset day, usually with quite a bit of anima to spare.

    5k is easy. 10k is doable but requires some effort. Neither requires running dungeons or raids.

    What's it with you guys and throwing strawmen everywhere? No, you don't. You need more than 5k if you want to buy the cosmetics now, while you're still upgrading and still want to finish upgrades as early as possible. Alternately, you can just delay one or the other.

    You're all being greedy. Anima is fine.

    Actually, the timers aren't synchronised (different zones can have refresh at different times). But for each WQ that runs out, a new one is activated in the same zone, so the total number of WQs active is static. Also, they all last 24h except for the Rare Elite for the epic calling, which is synchronised with the calling.

    I missed doesn't require ALL. I am not doing anything wrong as I don't really care about getting it, so only do WQ when I have to on the do 3 WQ covenant daily. Even when it is defend xxx, I would rather spam a quick heroic (not sure why M+ doesn't count) to fill the bar.

    I CHOOSE not to do WQ if I don't have to and am ok with not getting anima. Raiding gets you 35/boss. Stupid when a WQ can give you 140 (and I am not getting gear drops in raid, so...), a M+ gives you 35 at end (again stupid). I know you get gear in raids and m+, well in theory you do. Only 3 raids drops since release, but that is another thread

    So for people like me who work all day, the time raiding and running M+ is more fun than grinding out anima. So no, not doing anything wrong.

    P.S. I am Venthyr and our command table is broken so not a lot there
    P.S.S. good thing Anima isn't really important so I am cool with this choice

    The most difficult thing for people to do is objectively look at something they don't like and be able to accept that it is not bad, that other people like it, and if it was changed to the way they'd like it that other people would not like it and want it changed back. The second most is to receive something they didn't want or ask for and be grateful for it, not immediately demand what they wanted instead.

    Past the 1000 anima per week quest until you unlock all of soulbind, it's not attached to player power in the slightest. It is theoretically completely optional past that point. And the 1000 anima per week is so ridiculously easy to get. 250 from world boss, I usually get a 250 WQ at least once a week, 350 by completing the 2 dungeon weeklys from Oribos, leaving 150 anima, which is incredibly easy to finish up within a couple of minutes.

    You're being absolutely ridiculous, this is nothing at all comparable to artifact/azerite power, which offered constant increases to player power.

    Completely correct, and that has already been extensively covered in this thread on several separate occasions. I definitely agree that these rewards being cosmetic and thus optional is a huge improvement to previous expansions. It just isn't material to the argument.

    Why gate these rewards by making people grind? I can't speak for anyone else, but I personally don't enjoy grinding and wish it was relaxed a substantial amount. I would have a lot more fun if anima rewards were roughly quadrupled.

    That doesn't really work with the argument you keep making. Because you would still have to grind for anima regardless of the amount being quadrupled or not. The method to get anima won't change when the amount of anima you get does. So if it is a grind now it will be a grind later. Just do a few dailies a day and you'll have surplus anima. Weird right? Playing the game actually gets you more.

    The rewards are not gated by a grind. 6 or 7 dailies a day that take less then an hour to do is by no means a grind.

    People on this thread defending farming world quests daily on 4 characters for cosmetics for what i am guessing is at least 6 months to a year. If this is not detached from reality i don't know what is.

    Please, you do that. Don't come tell the rest of us that that callous distegard of time and fun is something the rest of us want to go through though.
    It is completely unnacceptable. You will see when rewards get buffed how you wasted days of your life on nothing and trying to defend the indenfensible to justify it.

    it does not take 6 months to a year, you are literally crazy.
    also who activly plays 4 charecters? seriously, how fucking much of the community do you think has 4 main charecters?

    are you gunna complain next that raiding takes too long, and so we should be able to just log on and auto-collect raid gear, cause clearing the raid 4 times a week would take forever?

    "Why make players play the game to unlock rewards"

    How long have you been playing wow, that only now you are complaining about having to unlock rewards instead of just logging on and being given all the loot and rewards the game could offer?

    I'm sure we'll get more in future patches, to the point where we're spewing anima out of every orifice like some sort of interdimensional anima god. But not in 9.0.
