New major systems locked behind a reputation grind, never seen that before. So much for "listening and learning", like all the other times they promised they would change. It's like an abusive partner that promises to change whenever you threaten to leave them.No matter how bad things get, Blizzard will never change and will continue to perpetuate the only things they know and focus on monetizing the game above anything else, including player satisfaction.
The article: "That statement still holds true, as Cypher of the First Ones is a separate system which takes place in Zereth Mortis, but isn't connected to The Enlightened rep directly. "Also the article: lists a number of cypher things that unlocks dailies for the enlightened rep?
Daily quest might give you rep KEKW.
This is unacceptable. Why forcing raiders into this mess called Zereth Mortis? Why cant we just get it by raiding? Like make Jailer drop second legendary recipe or something.This trash timegated rep grinding game design needs to stop.
Just attach it to a weekly quest on a week you think is a appropriate... dear god blizz how hard is that. Don't gate power behind god damn reps because if you do then even if the content isn't bad people will automatically be annoyed with it rather than giving it a fair shot because they feel like the have to do it or they end up punished. On top of that 28 days repeating the same few things even if it only takes 25 minutes a time is still 11 hours of play time that could be used to do things people actually want to do.
The most I read news, the less I want to play Zereth Grindis.I planned to play 9.2 few weeks after 9.1 release (already boring) but I think I'll just wait a whole new Xpac.Shadowlands is absolutely bad at almost every level. This is disappointing and an horrible design in many categories.
I'm assuming the person who wrote this doesn't follow Wowhead.
I don't mind the grind for ONE character but this is gonna suck bad for alts. Ugh
I don't want a !@#$ing grind to have this ^&*!. Locking an insane power increase behind reputation is just silly. FFXIV is hooking me in more and more at this stage.
The rewards aside, 28 days for Revered seems long, no? Isn't it usually ~a month for Exalted? If so, that seems like a poor choice even in a vacuum, never mind that this is coming after Archivist Codex rep took so long before they fixed it in 9.1.5.Even when thinking about legacy grinds like the Predator title, Grand Gryphon/Grand Wyvern mounts, and Balance of Power quest line, they are all 3-4 weeks. Grinding this rep to Exalted is going to stop being fun before most people get there, including those who normally don't mind grinding or waiting a few weeks.
