As for the allied races, meh, and now WoW has too many elves.

Maybe when the worgen models are updated, I'll change my druid from Night Elf.

(I've only been subbing for a month here and there)
I have only been back for like 2 months now. I quit before finishing Warlords. I got tired of the Raid grinding. The drop rates on anything decent are stupid low and you get dupes half the time.

I found (and delivered) some lost mail and now I'm the Postmaster's bitch. No good deed...



Also, why are all of these factions so damned stingy with rep? And why did Blizzard decide on exalted as the requirement? Reverence isn't enough to become allies? I might be done by the time the expansion is released.

The worst part about rep grinds. When I started years ago around Pandaria, you could equip a tabard and run dungeons over and over for rep.

Now you can't even buy a tabard until you are exalted. Instead you get tons of repetitious questing. Not even story based quests, its mindless repeating tasks. Its lame. The rewards aren't even worth while. Its like "now you can buy a tabard, some boring toy, some armor way weaker than you have after 1000 hours of grinding."

I feel like this could be fixed it rep was account wide. Like, do the main quest line on 2-3 characters and end up exalted. It would make more sense too from a gameplay perspective.

It sounds like it is account-wide, but not cumulative. Like, if I manage to get there for the Nightfallen on my main Alliance character, I'll just have to do the Embassy quest line with a Horde character to unlock the Nightborne, but that Horde character can't contribute to overall rep.

I play so much that I've got several alts exalted with all the legion reps. Argussian reach for the void elves is the worst of the bunch, but I have it... on the horde side. If my lone and neglected and not-exaltedalliance warlock can just do the quests to unlock the race that would be swell.... if it really works like that.

Kinda miffed at Blizzard for calling them 'allied races' it sounds way too fricking 'alliance'-ish.

This really exemplifies probably Blizzard's main conflict when designing game play.

You play a lot, you have exalted on several characters, probably all decked out 110s.

Then you have someone like me, I have one 110, and I can barely find the time to get one exalted rep for one Legion faction.

These extremes are so extreme I doubt it would even be possible to design a system that worked for both of us.

Mostly my irritation is that Flying is gated behind it. I really dont care about Exalted rep, I am not sure I care about allied races. I just want flying.

(yep, just created a void elf alt, even though I don't have any ally sided alts exalted with argussian, yay!)

Even as an super infrequent casual, you'll make pretty good progress, if you log in for maybe an hour or two, once every 3 days ... just long enough to knock out a handful of World Quests for a useful Emissary.

High Mountain
Nightfallen/Suramar
Kirin Tor (lets you choose rep for either of the above)
Armies of the Light
Argussian Reach

It helps to use the groupfinder for most of the WQ's, because it helps complete them faster, and there's always people nearby doing them, especially if it's for an emmissary.

The flying atunement for WoD was much worse than Legion's... also there's a lot of people with flying mounts that can take a passenger, teaming up with one to do WQ's can get you through them that much faster.


Also, keep in mind that by September, the Broken Isles will be in your rear-view mirror, and probably not some place you'll return to for much of anything.

I'm going to have to do flight on a different character, because DKs have 6 dungeons as part of their class hall campaign, and I don't dungeon. I have a level 100 hunter and, if Wowhead's info is correct, it looks like they only have one dungeon, which I could probably suffer through.

I try to switch to other characters but I keep coming back to my Warrior.



I played Fury up through like level 100 or so but when I came back in Legion they had changed things and I kept dying so I did most of Legion as Protection. Only recently did I switch back to Fury and get the hang of it.

I really hate how they have gated Flying so hard. I get why its gated, it kind of breaks some immersion in doing quests or whatever, but it feels a little too gated with this while rep grind nonsense.

I got into the alpha for the next expansion, but I am totally MMOed out at the moment - I never even got the flight for this expansion. I may go back and do it at some point, but lately other games have interested me more than WoW.

Just the last boss, in LFR, will suffice.

I didn't find it too bad, either the LFR or pathfinder as a whole.
Pathfinder was just long-winded.

LFR - Looking For Raid.

You queue lke you do dungeons.

I like doing LFR Raids, peraonally. I like Raids but I don't care about serious guild level perfect normal raids. I did a bit of that in Pandaria and dozens of wipes over hours is not my idea of fun.
