    If they went into the next expansion with all the lessons learned from how covenants work now.. it probably wouldn't be a huge deal. Its not a terrible system NOW. My worry is they would revert it to time gated boring grind outs they were at the start. It is just in their nature to always back step to that.

    I think we won't get a good WoW expansion again until the Microsoft buyout is officially complete, and they bring in some fresh blood and name a new WoW game designer, and let Ion retire.
    M+ came from ion's oversight and that single-handedly made dungeons relevant post the first 2 weeks of the expac. WQ's are also a flat upgrade to dailies. While recent expansions have had problems so has every expansion post ion and every expac looking forward if he is in charge or not. You just want to be mad the game isnt catered directly to you, and I'd hate to see your vision of the game and dumpster fire of content that would include.

    Locking players out of 3/4ths of a story/cosmetics based on some stupid arbitrary choice for 2 patches then removing it is one of the worst designed parts of any game I have ever played. Anyone that thinks covenants are good or would be good are absolutely brain dead.

    Just make them reputations. We've had reputations for years and they've worked just fine.

    Not surprising. The game gets along fine without sub-factions that limit player-choice once you join one of them.

    The only thing that'll be part of a flight, is your dragon mount.
    FOMO: "Fear Of Missing Out", also commonly known as people with a mental issue of managing time and activities, many expecting others to fit into their schedule so they don't miss out on things to come. If FOMO becomes a problem for you, do seek help, it can be a very unhealthy lifestyle..

    That, or they're pointing out that Blizzard went ahead with Covenants despite them not being balanced. I honestly have no clue which they were trying to say though, not even context for me to figure out which interpretation matches their intent.

    Ok, i thought it was obvious that Covenants weren't balanced. They still aren't. So, i dunno how it could be read in any other way, but there you go. I edited the original post to give more clarity.

    Aaaaah. I get it. They did (implement) covenants anyway.

    Sorry for misunderstanding

    saying one thing and meaning another is what i count as lying. it was like he mentioned that no player power will be locked behind ZM (yet it was thanks to unity needing revered to get and its a legendary so it is a player power, not to mention the leggy belt)
