Wow Rogue gear
I, like many others, am full-blown casual this expansion. My guild is a barely-there assortment of people who log on, play solo in silence, and log off without any real interaction. There are no guild raids, no guild dungeon runs. I don’t even read chat anymore because there’s never anything there.
I think that this is increasingly common in the game, as the role of guilds as an organizational tool has been replaced by in-game grouping systems.
This model suits me just fine right now. Heroics can be queued for and run in silence. LFR covers raids. World quests give gear upgrades. Artifact Power provides a feeling of progress and something to grind.
But it seems that so many of the progression paths in the game run through mythics.
- Unlocking the Suramar questline… mythic Court of Stars and Arcway (I know that has changed)
- New remade Karazhan? Mythic only. (yes, that has changed, too)
- Want to craft a legendary weapon? Mythic dungeon runs required.
- Following the profession questlines? Mythic dungeons.
For players like me, these represent a real obstacle. The only way to do mythics is to have a group, or to venture into LFG, where you might be judged based on your item level, kicked for low dps, or called names for dying to boss mechanics. You have to actually interact with people.
Now, my item level is fine. My dps is fine. I don’t die too often. I don’t get kicked. And yet I still feel put off whenever I have to go into a mythic dungeon. I know it is an MMO, and I know what that stands for, but the designers have done so much to turn this into a solo game that the mythic system seems almost out of place.
Right now I’m spending hours trying to get into mythic Darkheart Thicket as a dps. Tedious and boring, just hitting refresh on the LFG tool. This is not my preferred part of the game.
I’ve done some more of the new Broken Shores quests on both my shaman and my rogue. Both are interesting, with a bit of class flavor. I really look forward to the parts of the game that are tailored to your class, race, or faction. It gives the game replayability. I’m actually curious to play on my priest or druid now, just to see how their story progresses.
I think I preferred the shaman one, just because the new follower we got was an actual lore figure that I know (and hate). The rogue’s new follower was a lesser lore character.zibra blog before and after blogging to promote your business adult education classes iowa department of education masters of education psychologist education requirements harris county department of education responsive education solutions pacific driver education blogging your way to the front row education memes blog gael even blog off grid living blog title generator colorado department of education kim kardashian education blogging platforms like medium trumps education blogging beyond the classroom blogging courses blogging after retirement blog about food k-12 education blog difference between vlog apple education pricing higher education news blog logo blogging guide substack blogging with wordpress jobs higher education what after blogging education department jobs baldwin county board of education blog as a business
