It is Done
Tonight I started at just over 2,000 reputation short of being Revered with the Mechagon Trudgniks. I wasn’t expecting to get all that rep in one night, but the “find the chests” WQ was up so I popped it with a quest to spare.
So I’m flying in the current content once again. I wish I could say it wasn’t a slog this time, but it really felt like a slog. This “pathfinder” business started, what, in Draenor? I think it was Draenor. And the funny thing is, it took a month, grinding as fast as I could. I think it took less time in Legion, and it definitely took less than a month this time.
But it FELT like a slog through two pointless rep grinds.
I wonder if others feel the same way about the duration and pointfulness.
It’s funny, in that it feels like it was deliberately time-gated to drag things out. But if it takes less than a couple of weeks before you see people zipping around on flying mounts, how much of a delay was it?
I know I’m not alone when I say that I feel that Blizz is introducing time-wasting content to try to engage players longer – by “engage” I mean “engage players in time wasting activities”.
Okay, listen. Nobody’s kidding anyone here. Of COURSE they’re trying to drag things out, keep you involved longer without any real reward.
But what Blizz needs to do at this point is maybe put more effort into making it look less like they are.
Next up: something like 1000 manapearls to max out my benthic gear. And maybe by then they’ll have new content.
