Dungeons on the other hand, while initially fun, have low replayability outside of mythic+ (which becomes a grindfest) and offer little to no tangible rewards. Many folks were hoping for content that would keep us interested beyond another bland mini-zone and the usual gear grind. And we are disappointed.
    It's not about bad groups. It's that no one wanted to bother with them because they weren't worth it. Valor came from the dungeon completion after all, the side bosses did nothing.

    And then you're flat out wrong on bosses being skippable in mega dungeons, since they weren't. You're also ignoring the fact that both mega dungeons had a hard mode that was able to be toggled whether it was by a speed run (Kara) or by doing a certain order of bosses (Mechagon) and rewarded those who did so.

    Projection and inability to grasp what is written is your game, clearly. So yes, your crowd.
    Except that you have no idea what the pandemic effects were on Blizzard. I do. I happen to know that the majority of their full time Irvine employees were vaccinated in February and March as per company mandate. I'm also aware that their rendering software was made available to employees at home as early as May of 2020, and that their main campus in Irvine has been operable ever since Irvine dropped into Orange Tier back in April. Unlike your opinions, those are *actual* facts. Blizzard is just using the pandemic as cover to save money for their shareholders and buy themselves more time.

    Speaking of time, I don't think I'll deign to let you waste any more of mine. On to the ignore list you go, and good riddance to you, oh self-styled rodent queen.

    I 100% believe everything you just said, Oh fragile one.

    I did chuckle though, I'll give you that.

    I'm honestly not very sure how to feel about this. On one hand I'd like to see how the story goes on and I'd like to challenge myself again in Mythic, yet on the other hand I had more fun playing TBC and roflstomping everything than what I had the entire time in 9.0.5

    I think I'll just stay in TBC, attunements are better than the treadmill grind tbh.

    LFG skipped bosses on Mechagon. And the majority of players experience dungeons through LFG. There's a perception issue here because people who engage with forums like these are those who are most likely to engage with higher level content like mythic plus. It's easy to forget that the overwhelming majority of the playerbase do not.

    LFD didn't skip bosses, it split the dungeon. Both halves still had to deal with the same bosses in their respective wings.

    Sounds great except for another dungeon I will have to wait until it gets added to LFG before I do it. Mythic only dungeons should never be a part of the game.

    Any chance you got a source for this?
    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    At this point for the patch? Yes nothing should have. Shadowlands itself had the initial hit from Covid and the previous wildfires had a few big ones near their offices which people who work there probably live in the outskirts. Covid shouldn't have been an issue for a company as big as they are since pretty much last summer or earlier. A lot of companies had work from home up and running may 2020.

    No bosses were skipped. You still had to do them all. You are right otherwise though. Mythic only content should never exist.

    It is so very typical that trolls who just come here to shit on the game also have no idea at all what they are talking about. It's almost funny...if it weren't so annoying to read this kind of vomit.

    If you can't do baseline mythic dungeons at this point.....idk what to tell you. They're easier than Cata heroics.

    There pushing the patch because they realize how many there losing to ff 14 and dont want to give them enough time to get hooked. Get ready for a bug filled patch and so many issues. You saw it here first granted im happy for 9.1 because of flying

    Yeahp, they just had a 7 month drought for funsies. Nothing impacted it, nope.

    Seriously, I got a bridge to sell, located in China. The first ever patch developed entirely through at-home labour, and some think it had no effect...

    I am not sure how the gearing is for Season 2 but world quest content would allow you to out gear mythic 0 for 9.0. So the only issues with it being mythic only is that you can't auto queue for it. If they keep the gear requirements the same for future expansions they should unlock the ability to auto queue for M0 instances. They are not that hard.

    That isn't an original thought. And if Blizzard was trying to stop people from going to FF14 then they would have timed the patch around a date important to FF14.

    Not surprising. It's all done on the PTR anyways, and has been for some weeks.

    Maybe I'll get my ven'ari rep up from friendly this time.

    You know... I think in going to keep playing FFXIV instead. Just started and having a blast. 9.1 doesn't really offer me anything I really want to engage with.

    Sad thing to say considering this is the first time I've chosen another game over a WoW patch.
