It would motivate people to get a +15 while removing the FOMO, instead of just removing mount acquisition forever.
    Yeah, that's fine. That's just rewarding people for doing difficult (or semi-difficult) content. If that was how they did it, I'd have 0 complaints and it would be superior to how it's currently handled.

    5-10% of the existing m+ playerbase though, not the wow playerbase as a whole.

    Thanks for the clarification though, I thought it was less considering m+ players only.

    It's not casual content if 5-10% of m+ players do it, even less if you count every wow player.

    im mean yea of the M+ player base but every one who did a single 2+ key is counted in in those statistics, a +20 Necrotic Wake will place you on rank 84,997 (i checked my alt) that means 84,996 chars have done a higher than +20 NW key this season alone

    like i said every one who did a single +2 (not even in time) key in counted in so there are more ppl than you think doing +20s

    I'm (fairly) sure that's ranked by runs, not the actual number of individual characters that have done that run or higher.

    A +20 NW will indeed put you in that ~80,000 range of runs on RIO, but those runs aren't distinct by character by any means.

    Casual and 5% in the same sentence. Holy hell this thread is just a gold mine lol
    You tried, and you failed. What have you learned? That's better not to try at all.

    Sometimes I feel as if people here forget there's players who actually just log on to collect pets.

    I'd say even doing a 10 starts to push the border on casual honestly

    Speaking of high end rewards, it seems like Mythic raiders will be able to earn teleports to CN, SoD and Sepulcher only after clearing all of them on mythic difficulty in Season 4.

    Keep in mind Blizzard said season 4 will be relatively short compared to previous seasons. What do y'all think of an incentive that will in all honesty be most useful for transmog farming in future expansions but will only be available to high end raiders?

    I believe the dungeon teleports became available with the launch of 9.1 and could be acquired before season 2 began. In other words, they were useful for high end m+ pushers for most of the expansion.

    With Sepulcher technically not being the final raid tier in season 4, I personally think the teleport should be a reward for clearing all the raids on heroic in season 4.

Hell my wr 30 guild is casual atm on farm we only raid 1 night a week and log off till reset day

    You cannot pug a 20 without putting in hours of work to get a score that would let people accept you.

    You just have an incorrect view of casual.

    This right here. We don't need more FOMO and we definitely don't need more ways for people to sell boosts.

    Ah yes, and Method doing 29 mage Ny'alotha heroic joke runs also makes them a "casual" guild.

    It is the time-limited aspect that sucks, not the reward itself. I have the MoP CM gold set on my paladin, and I wish I could get it on my other characters. It wasn't remotely difficult to get; it was boring and took about 5 hours total, I didn't have it in me to repeat it on another character in MoP. I would absolutely have gone back and done it on another class had it remained available in WoD, because WoD had so little content to do (I didn't care for any of the CM weapons).

    FOMO in games sucks the life out of them if done poorly, and WoW has been getting worse when it comes to FOMO for years now. The only time I don't hate FOMO is when the time-limited nature is on a schedule. For example the HH mount/valentine's mount/violet proto-drake are all examples of FOMO that is tolerable. You might miss out on it this year, but as long as the game is still around next year you'll have more chances at it. D3 is another example of how to handle FOMO at this with how it cycles cosmetic rewards on a seasonal basis. If WoW went that route and rotated through already existing cosmetics rather than completely locking away the older ones I think it would be much better for the game.

    Keep the timestamps on achievements for people who want the prestige of having done it when it was current, but let everyone have access to the more visually interesting rewards later on.
    So add in a token that you get after you complete the challenge a second time you get to buy old sets like rbg mounts?

    I kind of think that is a dumb reward tbh.. if you clear mythic when are you ever going to use that tp? By the time you have it you have all the transmog and odds are will get the mount so you wont be going back for it.

    I think the other way around pretty much, what really is useless is making stuff that just adds to a huge pile of useless things. 16th recolor boar you get by accident as you were doing something else? No thanks, if anything we need less of that because it adds to an ever increasing pile of stuff that NOONE uses wants or displays except when trying to make the most ugly PC possible.
    I wouldn't mind if timewalking was expanded to include old M+ seasons tho, just as they were, same talents and classes, with preset armor and talents from that season, and if you want the 2500 rating thing, you can simply timewalk back with your friends and earn the rating.

    If Blizzard would ever devote the time and resources necessary to change how textures are made for wow (colors baked in) and make them dynamic (assignable colors), then we'd probably see less recolors... which is exactly why Blizz probably won't ever do that. Recolors are an excuse to reuse assets. Giving us any sort of dye system would render making recolors redundant as far as weapons and armor are concerned.

    I like having lots of options for transmog and having mounts in a variety of colors that can match the outfits I put together. I just think it's a waste to make stuff just to remove it later. Like say the old elite pvp sets. Why shouldn't pvp'rs who get high ratings be able to get an old elite pvp mog? Pve'rs can always go back to solo mythic raids for their mogs a few expansions after the fact, but pvp'rs just outright lose the opportunity to ever get the old elite sets since they're tied to a specific season. I don't see any reason why someone who hits a high enough rating in pvp shouldn't be able to buy an old pvp set if they prefer that to the most current one.

    No. Normal gives a mount, and heroic a title. Which are the two difficulties most people can do regardless of their guild situation. It's ok if you don't get the portals because they are just nice to have things but not so much an issue if you can't get them, compared to a title or mount. And it mirrors the M+ rewards. People who only want cosmetics shouldn't be forced to do high end stuff imo.

    Interesting point about Diablo 3 - as soon as I realized that they were re-using seasonal rewards I quit that game. Felt super bamboozled by Blizzard and the whole seasonal reward-structure lost all their meaning for me.

    I mean sure it will probably be rare (unless the tuning becomes very forgiving which is very possible) but I don't feel you save such a huge amount of time. You can get to SoD and Sepulcher in a couple of minutes from Oribos anyway.

    You seem to believe the only people playing is the ones doing 25+ and mythic raids, when the game was basically fueled by people paying their sub to do daily quests. You play in a WR30 guild and you call yourself casual, you really have zero idea of how this game actually works.

    It's true that casual and skill are not on the same spectrum (one can be casual and good, or hardcore and bad) but this just shows how the vision of the game is completely skewed and full of bias depending on how someone plays the game.

    I'm not trusting anyone until they talk in generic terms and if they say stuff like "i do X" i immediately dismiss them because it's literally "i play the game like this so should everyone else". From what i've seen lately, Blizzard is starting to disagree with this kind of reasoning. We'll see how it ends.

    Back on topic: i feel again laughable how most people are against the idea of a seasonal elite xmog for high level m+ just because they already know they are not going to reach that level of gameplay/effort/skill and still pretend they should have a chance at it. And this comes from someone who doesn't have the time to eventually do something like that - it's literally comsetics. You don't need them for ANY reason. Remeber that FOMO only exists if you feel the need to have something, so it's a "you" problem and not the game.
    You tried, and you failed. What have you learned? That's better not to try at all.

    But thats the whole argument the last few years, people that never had it, suddenly request it and even worst they request it in -their own time table-.

    What i have understood lately, by the biggest screamers on here at least, is that basically they are expansion/patch hopping between games and they want the game to change to the timetable they want cause their life changed and they dont have the time to play all the games they want to play.

    Despite never wearing the elite gladiator set when its active, and farming transmog runs for 10 years, nowadays the request seems to be "Give them to me now, in 1 sub cause i dont wanna pay more than that".
