Im sorry but i had to chime in, i have to give credit where its due.
First, to the OP
This is the dumbest thread ive come across in a LONG time. Sure the cross realm zones is kinda a pain, but not see the upside to it? are you on drugs? Try forming a sha grp at 5am on a low pop server, and youll be glad CRZ exist. Also, when your a lowbie, leveling, its kinda nice to have some people in desolace (or any random, remote region) to help you finish up that quest, kill the elite, or atleast to make /1 a little interesting.
Lets complain more before its even out. Im sure the game on the PTR = the game on the LIVE realms, becuase no changes were made, ever, from one to the other.
Yea. Dailies suck. Bad. But 5.1 brings the boost of rep to alts. I wish they had added in a BOA tabard, purchasable at exalted, to speed up rep on alts, or provide rep in dungeons on alts, but hey, whatever.
And the big difference between the enchants, Sure, the enchanters need to go farm the reps, Not every toon! which is great if you have lots of high level toons. My enchanter farmed the reps, all my toons get the enchant. Seems pretty awesome to me.
We havent even scratched at the surface of this expansion, the entire wow population is barely into challenge modes, and how many people do you see walking around with all the reps at exalted, geared, with all the cool rare items they added in... and combat pets at lev 25? not one, ever? yea ok
And second piece of credit to where its due, Blizz.
This expansion has its bugs, and its problems, sure, but it is STRIDES above the previous expansion. You cant go more then 10 yards in pandaria, without coming across a rare mob, a quest, a rare item like a mining pick or whatever, or a critter to combat with. Not just the fact theres loads of more stuff to do in the same-ish amount of space, but how many times have the realms crashed since MOP was released? Maybe once or twice? Seriously, do you remember ulduar? where all of northrend would crash every time you zoned in? Sure the maintenance can be hefty, but atleast its just tuesdays. i have yet to be in a raid and have the realms crash. Remember cata? a large portions of players would DC in org! latency and DC issues were rampant, blizz fought with AT&T and other companies, and the issues were endless. This is the best and smoothest patch by blizz so far, and they deserve an thumbs up for really taking it to another level. I remember the first couple of days after the patch, there was SOOOOO much to do, stuff to farm, and so on.... and its still full of stuff to keep you out of the forums, and in the game. (thanks for that, btw).
OP: What reality do you live in? /tin foil hat saves lives.
Blues: /thumbs up. next time, add tin foil to packaging plz.
