By now, I seem happy with how my alts feel themselves at this stage of Legion.
My main Micromantica is at ilvl 854 – this is very good. The next LFR raid access is going to be 835, so I am way over it. Common mobs finally crack like nuts under my ice spells. She’s at 19 knowledge and 30 traits considering her artifact weapon. Profession skills are nice enough not to worry about them. She’s got all reputations over Revered. She’s eagerly grabbing every new Suramar storyline every week. So yes, she’s good.
As for other 11 alts, they’re good as well. Their ilvl is at least over 820, knowledge at least over 13, traits over 21. Almost all of them have completed the first leg of Suramar questline and ready for the biggest rep grind with Nightfallen.
At this stage it feels like I need to switch to One Day – One Alt playing style. I really need to put an effort in one alt per one sit. I feel like I should proceed through Suramar, grind world quests and reputations to notice the change.
So, then One Day – One Alt from now.
Dungeon Issues in Legion
I really grew to hate the dungeons. Not only I have to revisit them all the times, but I also meet jerk groups there more often than not – say, it’s one normal group out of five. People are being expelled for the slightest mistakes. All hells break loose in group chats. The other day I just don’t want to queue up at all even if I need to go there very much.
I’ve never seen such attitude before, not in any expansion. Even when everyone farmed Pandarian dungeons for tokens, the attitude was civil.
I could guess the reason is that dungeons are obligatory, and people run too much of them. Not only quests, professions and all are tied there, now it’s also 80-dungeon marathon. People want to run them FAST, asap, and the smallest delay – a slightly unexperienced player or a player who died is a nuisance. People don’t even resurrect anymore or take a boss wipe as a challenge – they just kick the players out immediately. Yes, the one who died is not resurrected – he’s kicked out. No matter the cause. Gradually you start to feel: if you managed to kill the final boss and weren’t kicked out, it’s a bliss, a miracle.
I was the victim of the said behavior and witnessed it done to other players dozens of times more. I don’t want to run dungeons anymore. I’m fed up with group content.
P.S. Don’t even start me with ‘run with the guildies!’ advices. When you have 4 or 5 dungeons to do on different alts, and same dungeons too – as a routine, you can hardly find a guild group for every run. Eager to run many low levels for no personal profit just because you don’t like a group finder. Not an option.
