Well the only thing I'll bother with is the flying mount, which I'll then proceed to never fly with.6.2 is a let down. Just like 6.1. And just like 6.0.
Thanks perc for putting all this info together, makes it easier to plan for 6.2. (I secretly hope you are a pro flyer too, lol)
Looks like hoarding those Apexis Crystals is going to pay off (even more).
So Apexis crystals are still virtually useless then? The gear is bad and expensive, the rewards are pitiful and cheap (1 daily to get the follower). The new rep grinds are just that, grinds - no one liked how the current WoD grinds worked because "kill 5k of X mob" is not fun or content. Also feels really cheap that the 1 item that might be worth getting is a flying mount. Just after they announced there will never be flying again... Here's a plan - if you're going to make us only use ground mounts (let's face it, most of the flying mounts look horrible on the ground) maybe work on making some good looking ones? You know, ones that aren't just a recoloured boar or wolf? Also, people need to get over the "recoloured special edition" mount thing. You got what you paid for, you made that choice. If you want to whine about recolours, then it should be pointed out that your precious mount (that can be bought on the Blizz Store btw) is simply a re-skinned Drake. It's an OK looking mount (the apexis one) but since it can't fly, 95% of it's awesome is lost. I heard FFXIV will have more subscribers by the end of Q2 than WoW...
Not impressed at all, 6.2 is looking to be one hell of a boring patch, how am I going to convince friends to come back by saying " Hey guys there's stupidly expensive stuff to buy and all it requires you to do is grind "I've hated this expansion thus far reputations are horrid and so are apexis crystals, it could be tollerable if they gave us unique mounts at the least but given how everything is copy pasted it's just not worth it. I had hoped Blizzard at the very least would of listened to people complaining about how awful the reps are but looking at that Saberon faction it looks like they've swept concerns under the rug once again.
I believe FFXIV has already beaten WoW in terms of sub numbers. SE even stopped losing money and had a healthy profit once the revamp hit the servers.
I understand the negative comments. This expansion isn't exactly turning out to be the most thrilling. However, I'm looking forward to venturing into HTC, if only for lore reasons. One can only hope that there is a shorter queue than current LFR. And enough tanks who actually want to raid. I honestly don't have an hour to wait in a queue only to have half the raid bail. No way I'm going to grind TI mk. II. I'll find my enjoyment playing alts and keeping my fingers crossed that LFR queue times will become reasonable again.
cool people complaining about tannan, excellent less competition! :)
I can not browse this page by my ipad anymore! just after 2-3 seconds wowhead.com redirects me into the appstore to certain apps to buy! please stop that aggresive advertising.
Whine whine whine $%^&* and moan #$%^& and moan #$%^& and moan!Am I doing it right?
Anyone would think that WoD sourced flying mounts were only intended to be used IN WoD content...Here's a thought; if you want to play a game that has absolutely NO bearing on anything that has gone before it (except a few core interactable characters & a vaguely connected theme/storyline), stick to console games. WoW is an EXPANSION based game where everything you do &/or have done will shape you into being what you become in the future. Mounts are account-wide & any you get in current content (but cannot use fully IN current content) can still be used by other characters who are yet to reach the illustrious heights of your main, in content where flying IS allowed.I sometimes get the impression that some players out there (not all, just some) would be happier if WoW had no levelling system & was a totally separate game with each 'expansion pack', with negligible continuity to anything that had been released before.If, after however many years of playing WoW, you've still failed to grasp the concept of the underlying basis of how WoW is designed, via continuity, etc then maybe time to ask - "Why do you play WoW?". If it can be condensed into sheepishly following friends who play & DO appreciate the concept of an expansion-based MMO, then simply stop playing.REAL friends will still be out there for you to associate with, no matter what games you do/don't play - you don't HAVE to play WoW to 'be with friends' if you don't like playing it... and REAL friends will appreciate your individual choice NOT to play WoW if you choose not to.In the end, choosing to come to a game-based forum to deride a game that you are no longer happy with (Oh, wait... some people derive some kind of perverse, gratuitous pleasure from doing so - they're called TROLLS), why do you feel the need to spoil other peoples' liking of said game? Constructive criticism, I get, but no-one is holding you at weapon-point, forcing you to continue to subscribe to WoW... it is only you that's failing to cancel your subscription to a game you feel little empathy for - you'd be a much stronger person if you did what you said, instead of typing empty threats.I'd rather play a game with one million happy people, than one and a half million that included whiners & dissatisfied, disillusioned amongst its number.Play because you WANT to, not because you want a game to be something that YOU want it to be & isn't likely to be any time soon.
I'm actually looking forward to 6.2 a good deal. Everything looks fun and interesting to me, and I can't wait to dig into it all.
Don't see any point in mounts who can fly being made anymore if they wont release flying at all :L
Everyone is upset about the Corrupted Dreadwing, for both its price and causing the Dreadraven to lose its uniqueness to those who bought the Deluxe edition. As some one who has the Deluxe edition with the pet and mount. I think the Corrupted version is extremely cool and I don't care at that they are using the model. It is a badass mount, I'm also fine grinding the hell out of Apexis Crystals to get it, because it is so cool.
