"AT FIRST I was a bit narked about the lack of pet, however the rep boost made me go and grind Cenarion Expedition and the afternoon ended with me happily flying on my new Hippogryph! I'm also sitting in the revered zone of the Kurenai now so hopefully by the end of today I'll be riding Talbuks like a boss.So if you're annoyed about the lack of pet then stop whining and go use your new package to earn yourself a pet or mount."That is a pretty lame excuse you know, speaking as if the item does a really noticeable change in rep gains. If it was 50% perhaps, like Guild Tabard.But 7% isn't, and it would barely affect your rep amount at all.Allthough, I don't really care.It would be nice with pets, I admit that. But then again, pets are no fun unless you work for them.Just like mounts.
All I was saying was the item just pushed me to get rep grinding done, kind of a "well I might as well try this out and use it the way it's supposed to". I thought it would add more on but once I started I just kept going. The rewarding feeling of earning the mount and then having the mount was much better than pets I've just bought from auction house/vendors without any rep or other requirement needed.Even though the 7% adds on very little per kill it adds on a wee bit more of a noticeable amount when you kill bosses and when rep grinding, every little helps.
And I disagree; there are probably going to be people who are going into ToR expecting to see the familiar faces from the movies(yes, it will happen); you'll also hear the standard "Well, WoW did it first"(same as we did for RIFT), so you'll be seeing people coming back.I agree the subs will probably not have a mass increase, but I don't see them dropping any faster either.
Once TOR has gotten over 5 mil players and lasts for 3-4 years, then it can be said they got it together. But like the other games that have come out, there will be a few die hard players for them.
So once again no pet?That cash shop needs some more content I suppose...
Seriously, its been 7 years and all we get is 7% exp and rep boost for like 2 weeks and only on kills not even quest this is pretty lame why not a pet or an event to give people stupid little items we don't really care about but must have.Any wow player that has been playing since cata reps will be max and exp wont matter. Wait I can lvl an alt for 2 weeks to actually make use of it thats always fun seeing I have like 85 of every class, OR I can go back and do old rep grinds which take away time from roflstomping people in random BG's my weekly arena, weekly raids, weekly random dung for vp on top of my everyday quest. Thanks blizz for 7 year reward.One more rant. What about the people that have been playing for the whole 7 years like me and probably 1 million other people. WHAT DO WE GET BLIZZ WHAT DO WE GET?Flame on trolls flame on...Snuffey A.K.AQQ Master
