The issue is that any world quest that has the "Find Group" icon will just have the group finder stuck on "Searching..." if you are below level 50. A lot of people are running into this issue since the Legion invasion and BFA assaults have world quests accessible to players under level 50.We're no longer able to look for a group/other players to play with , especially for these "Find Group" quests that often require more than one person...I don't have a solution to dealing with the RMT advertisers in LFG, but it does suck to have this affects actual players a lot more than the RMT advertisers, who can just advertise on boosted level 50 characters.
So, if you choose Draenor to level with Chromie Time, you can't open your garrison or visit others' garrisons for sharing the traders which are hardly ever available or easily group for the GROUP quests.I agree with the folks saying this isn't helpful to players, especially casual players/subscribers who work for a living and hand some of that money over to Blizzard all year. Not cool. The crappy cheaters will cheat. So they just do the bad, lazy teacher thing of punishing the whole class for what a few people do. Ugh. Blizzard gets my money. Do they have to kill the fun mood for casual players, too?
Ran into this trash today as well. Couldn't figure why LFG was stuck on searching as I was trying to find help to do a BfA incursion rare elite on my lvl 44 I was lvling and there is absolutely no way to solo that content at that lvl. Eventually just from floating in the area, others came along and I hopped in. But this utter trash. Their own UI opens the LFG for these group WQs / quests, but if you don't notice the disabled PG tab (like I didn't for several minutes) and also mouse over it, you have no idea what's going wrong. I submitted a bug report because as far as I'm concerned this is a bug.
This is my only complaint so far about the changes to leveling. This makes doing some quest so difficult as you are leveling. The quests that recommend having 3 people to kill elites or the world quest for the world bosses if you decide to pick Legion as your questing area can't be done. You end up having to wait there and hope someone else is also doing the quest when before you could just join a group with someone else or start one if you need help with killing something. I hope this is eventually changed because as it is now it just makes certain parts of leveling difficult and annoying and you end up having to skip them until max level.
Experiencing this issue now during 9.0.1. I'm doing a BFA assault on my level 43 Warrior and can't solo one of the elite world quests mobs. It's 3AM and nobody is around, and icing on the cake: I can't even find/start a group for it with the LFG tool. Real nice Blizzard, choosing the lazy workaround to combat boost sellers over the player experience.
This change is ^&*!ing trash... if you don't have level 50 you are basically banned from doing any elite quest unless you are lucky enough someone is already there... basically you can't farm unless you are max level... STUPID STUPID changeBlizzard you can aswell delete half quests for low levels cause they wont be able to complete them solo....
