They want to make sure that there are some gold sinks for those who have accumulated wealth players to keep buying tokens.
Blood of the enemy and conflict and strife nightmares are back : )
No more pet battle dungeons?
I hope they do allow solo island expeditions at some point. I'm fine with it being a back burner issue for now but.. I want to be able to farm for those mounts at my leisure sometime in the future.
Pathfinder makes the game more enjoyable. Having it from the get-go trivialized content for every expansion we had it. Hell, even 8.3 felt super easy because of flying.Tentacles everywhere, giant mobs running around- Oh wait, I clicked fly. I'mma go drop down on chests and then fly away again.>.>Like, imagine how non-threatening The Maw would be with flying.However... Despite being a fan of it... I feel like it should be easier to obtain when flying -is- released. Me personally? It takes like two weeks to unlock flying. I just do normal stuff and BAM, it's open. But my friends don't have two hours to play every day, and when they do, they don't wanna grind emissaries for it.So I often find myself piggybacking friends who play too many alts, or just don't play as frequently.This way? Taking out the reputations and just changing it to 'finish your campaign, basically'? Very good.Pathfinder, to me, has always been "See all the zones, do the quests, play through the content while it's relevent and get flying as a reward when something new takes you elsewhere." Flying is an exploration mode after you've beat the game,in my perspective. <3 But it doesn't feel like it when you're on your third healer class and only Honored with Turtlebois.This sounds way easier. <3
I agree that flying shouldn't be available immediately, but I also think having to wait a year to be able to fly is excessive. Pathfinder for 9.0 should reward flying in 9.0 content. And so on for each new patch, if there're new zones being added. This stuff shouldn't be coming after the content's become irrelevant IMO. Like how we couldn't fly in BfA zones until 8.2, when Nazjatar and Mechagon released. That's way too long of a wait!
"They also don't want people to just be reserving a whole bunch of names."Im calling bull@#$% on this one.I have five wow accounts. thats 250 names. they KNOW they aint stopping something like this by limiting me to 50 characters.This one is just a bull%^&* excuse for not giving us 100 instead.
Flying in its current form is bad for the game. Flying should be more than just a convenience for leveling. The entire mounting system needs a revamp to be actual gameplay.
