Guild Thursdays

Recommended Posts

I still have one boss left to see now, hoping we'll get numbers on Thursday so we can do that at least, as I'm guessing it's the one that's annoying to pug?

Yes. It can't be done on Normal or above without some level of intelligent communication between raid members since some people get shrunk and have to jump inside little robots and input a series of commands to disable them while only the people who AREN'T in the robots can see what the code patterns are.

I'm probably going to be in Edinburger on Thursday evening so won't be back in time.

Looking bad for this evening, isnt it. Most ppls subs ran out, other ppl are hold till 8.2 and worst of all, the treacherous paladin went off to some scottish village!

Going to try it anyway, just want to get the one boss done at least. Also Sharp is now available again. Please be online, we'll PUG a couple if needed.

Sorry, FFXIV expansion is next week and I got no love for WoW anymore...

Yeah kinda the same here.  I am willing to give 8.2 a go but FFXIV and Shadowbringers have me super hyped right now.

I will be back for the patch as well, looking forward to some new nonsense

Accounts are still active, just not playing much except occasional alts. Will be back for raid though.

I miss doing dungeon runs but I also get that they got a bit pointless.

Loz and I talked about this on Monday night. I honestly feel the "seasonal resets" have killed this expansion for me. I got my Heart to lvl 47 in early April by really maximising the weekly gains. If I'd kept going it would have capped out at the end of April but on Wednesday there will be some mechanic to let a returning player leap forward and catch up in no time. My item level will be similarly trivialised through updated WQs/dungeon rewards at the same time.

I'm sure this always happened to some extent but it feels far too prevalent and in your face now. My account is active and I may well log in again but it is tough to find the motivation tbh.

I was thinking about this some more. 8.0 was flawed but I enjoyed it. However 8.1 felt like a reset you get between expansions not within one. I can't really place my finger on why. Item levels always increase but never has patch made me feel that everything I had worked on that expansion was so pointless. Maybe its Azerite gear and necklace stuff or maybe it was the weird release dates? Don't know but it slowly drained the enthusiasm right out of me. Hope 8.2 will do some interesting things...

Blizzard have said that their major patches are almost like mini expansions, to which they want everyone to be able to dive right in, so they have all these 'catch-up' mechanics and what not. Now, they certainly helped me when I came back for a bit, but I can fully understand how it feels to be someone that hasn't taken such a long break to have someone be almost up on par in less than a week.

Considering the amount of 'WoW refugees' we are seeing come to FFXIV, they are really trying to keep people coming back and playing, so making it a lot easier to jump in, but ofc, that has other effects.

They seem to be going back on that a bit. They've said recently there'll be no catch up or replacements for the new heart essences/powers this expansion, so what you earn now will last you to the end and its not going to get any easier / harder / faster to get.

I remember when the internet's moan was how hard it was to gear alts / change character, so its a tricky one since different groups want different things.

Well, well, well, what a patch release day. just check out all this hype! but as ppl pointed out: the raid is 2 weeks yet. HOWEVER, if a few ppl are around this evening, we could do a guild mechagon mythic for everyones favourite new heart trait: the vision of perfection. The mythic version of the new 5man is already available, to be released in 2 weeks to the "general public" as 2 seperate heroic instances - think kara.
