I Want a Pretty Dragon
Really, Blizzard? Let’s just rename this game to World of Dailycraft… or better yet… World of FuckMeInTheEyeCraft.
So this post is a rant. Wall of nerd rage and shouty capitals incoming. You have been warned.
I was simultaneously working on 3 rep grinds: Golden Lotus, Tillers and Cloud Serpent. The operative word in that sentence is “was”. I’ve now abandoned the pretty dragon people, for now. I want a pretty dragon. But I can’t have a pretty dragon. You know why I can’t have a pretty dragon? Because I have no time to pay attention to them, to get them to love me. I want them to love me. Someday they’ll love me. /sadface
So now I’m down to Golden Lotus and the Tillers. The Tillers will be the next casualty. I hit revered with them so I can plant my motes of harmony. That’s really what I wanted their rep for. I have enough plots now to farm 1 Spirit of Harmony per day and two plots for ingredients Crix needs to make our raid feasts. But when I go there to harvest, I see all those blue ! and I’m all… I MUST DO ALL THE BLUE EXCLAMATION POINTS and before I know it, it’s an hour past my bedtime, and I’m a grumpy cranky bitch the next morning.
All the blue exclamation points can suck it. SUCK. IT. The Golden Lotus can suck it. When I hit revered with those sadistic assholes, then the Shado Pan can suck it. Then the Klaxxi. You know what? They can all suck each other. Fuck em all. Right in the ear. ALY DOESN’T DO DAILIES. I just hit honored with the Golden Lotus. And as a reward…. I unlocked… MORE GOLDEN LOTUS DAILIES.
Oh yeah, being honored also unlocks GL valor gear! Yippeee! Oh wait.. it doesn’t give ENOUGH VP for me to actually buy anything. Fuckers.
WHY BLIZZ WHY?!!!
This is why we’re running face first into 10 man raiding wearing dungeon blues. That brings me to the next thing that I hate which I’ll be forced to run… LFR. At least it’s a little more bearable with the changes in loot distribution. As if that’s not enough, 5.1 will bring exciting new content! That’s right! A new faction AND MORE DAILIES!!!!! /confetti
They really need to up the VP rewards. I have enough time between getting home and going to bed to either do dailies or heroics, but not both. If I were to get valor capped just by doing dailies, I would need to do 200 of them/week. You mean I’m not doing that many already?! It FEELS like I’ve been doing 200/week. But I have the valor for less than half of the cap. All this effort, where’s my reward? Oh yeah… MORE FUCKING DAILIES.
I feel like I’ve been duped. That one year subscription, get a flying pony and invited to the beta. The Blizzard developers are sadistic. That’s all there is to it. I couldn’t quit now if I wanted to. I’m still paying for it, I may as well keep playing it. And hope it gets better. All I know is I’m not the only one feeling the burnout 3 weeks into the expansion.
Something’s gotta give.
