    You guys should do a Q&A only focusing on classes/specs and their design. Weird that it's basically never adressed.

    I really pure heartedly agree.I play the game not because of how good or bad rewards are, but because of base gameplay of my class, and satisfaction of moment to moment actions and all-in-all feeling of being "name class+spec".Well, its probably more correct to say I dont play the game not because of how good or bad rewards are, but because of base gameplay of my class.

    Problem with class design is it's simply too linear.

    Move everything back to WOTLK style.

    I guess PvP vendors are TOO HARD TO YOU to add in game.

    We would never find the vendors. Don't you know it's in fact impossible to find pvp vendors?

    Bring back vendors please !! no one cares when they get gear now because it will just be replaced by a 5 ilvl piece in 3 days time. there is no reward or pride in the gear we get. We dont get to window shop for gear and plan our gearing path. 0 choice 0 fun

    +Dularr I'm guessing old school and retarded? He mentioned how gear is replaced every WEEK by a 5 ilvl upgrade, not between expansions... for example, MC 40 gear would still be relevant in later raid tiers UNTIL TBC, same deal for the next 3 expansions since some set bonuses were ideal for certain fights and specs.

    +Dularr ur talking about from one expansion to the next. I think people's points are during one expansion, during one patch

    Son, it looks like you spend over 1/3 of your time sleeping, go to bed.

    If we know straight up that we're never gonna ever stop gearing, thats not fun. we need to actually RECIEVE that feeling of accomplishment for a bit before we go back to gearing. nobody wants a non stop gear train

    As a casual, I agree with this. I liked working towards a few pieces, maybe a set, and be happy about it. But now it’s just replaced and it’s never ‘the best’. I tried on my main at the start of the xpac and I had fun. But then Warfronts came out and caught up the whole community (and my alts) in the matter of a week. That’s what killed BFA for me. They lifted the veil. I no longer cared or wanted to get better gear because I know I’ll always be able to be to be around 10-15 ilvl of the top end raiders...

    +Chr Bac ? Endless? they just need to create a higher tier weapon or armor for hardcore player to grind.Not that Difficult right??

  • Wild Open

     (Mar 22, 2019)

    So they're saying that having a clear end goal considering gear, you know, getting your set, feeling good about getting your bis, is bad because then you don't have anything to work towards anymore? Wtf is this reasoning? NOT having this end goal makes every single piece of gear meaningless, as you're just gonna replace it with something minorly better. You removed all the satisfaction from getting gear! It felt GOOD to finish gearing your character. They're so disconnected from the reasons why peop...

    i think an end goal is valuable. but it's true, when you've reached that, you're done. you've reached your end goal, literally. that's fine though. what's important is the duration it takes for you to reach that and then the time in between where you set your next end goal.

    This mindset of "the game was never actually good and we've been fixing it" is nonsense. You had a good formula. There's a reason this game had millions of subs at one point and there's a reason all your videos get downvote bombed now. You're attempting things that aren't broken and you're the one's who end up breaking them.The pure arrogance is astounding.

    Exactly. Apparently Activision rounded them all up into a big theater, and brainwashed them. The typical low paid Blizzard employee sees the sh*% this game's became, the upper management are blind as a bat+.
