I'm not a fan of the fact that your character can be permanently left behind if you're busy for a week or something and you can't farm any Coalescing Visions, unlike how you can infinitely grind the HoA.Still, at least the Horrific Visions look good!
The issue for alts will always be the time needed to gain better gear vs just waiting for the expansion at this point. We are looking at less than a year, probably more like 10 months before Shadowlands, so if I'm not raiding with alts, the time spent wont be worth it for me.
Seems like the most efficient path for me, as a non-raider, would be to just do the three assaults per week on one character, and just the one on my other alts, and have them all just stockpile the currencies until I finally decide to run horrific visions on them and do like 10 in a row.
“...of work”And here we have the very reason I stopped playing regularly for the past month.
Most of this seems good, but it feels like the reward for the dailies is a little too low, at only 50. 100 seems like it would be more reasonable, and more in line with the other rewards.
There is a difference between the satisfying sort of work that comes with learning a complex encounter and succeeding and the sort of work that this is.This is just tedious, so many games have decided that tedious grinding is more relevant than teaching yourself a skill.I have no issue with them locking rewards behind a skill wall, because then the content itself is also fun. Learning the skill is half the reward. There is no "reward" for doing a tedious grind until the end, therefore the game play itself is not fun and a waste of time.Just make Horrific Visions a 2 cap completion a week and take this grind for the key out of the game. I don't want free stuff...I just want the content to earn the stuff to actually be satisfying...I know this isn't as time consuming as some of the grinds they've done, but the fact that I have to accept this grind "isn't too bad" is the real problem, we are frogs in a slowly boiling pot of water accepting the bad because we are used to it...
This is an mmo. Grinds are a part of the genre. Always has been always will be. Go play something else if you don’t like it.
WoW and majority of other MMORPG's have been always about grind. The only difference from expansion to expansion is that some grinds are time locked and some aren't. Since day one of WoW, we've been endlessly grinding gear, reputation etc. Some expansions were more alt friendly, some weren't. Some mechanics were better and some were worse. But one constant has always been there, a grind. That being said, if you want to play a game where you are handed things for free, this is not a game for you. If you have some constructive feedback, leave it. But endlessly complaining by saying absolutely nothing e.g "omg this is so bad" is just waste of characters and personally, I would remove those types of comments instantly. They are literally no different then if you write "potato orange sky sea". This community started degrading couple of years ago and it keeps getting worse and worse due to "never-satisfied" group of morons.
Whats the rewards for the Visions of N'zoth ? I can't find anywhere i know we upgrade the cloak but just that?
You can spend the rest of your time doing the Horrific Visions, Mythic+ or whatever you like!Thank u so much blizz that u are giving the permeation to do whatever we like !
