timegate ilvl rather than drops on a weekly schedule, and give a range of ilvl cap for mode hardness.
Give participation reward cosmetics monthly to encourage reclears after beating the raid once.
For DF professions:
Actually let us grind for skill points instead of weekly hard caps that block us from grinding it out. It’s a boring waiting game and I unlearned DF professions and stopped doing solo stuff in DF over this.
Current state is them doubling down on Meaningful Choice from Shadowlands Covenants and turning it into a waiting out your sub time waiting game over skill point tree.
For normal DF activities:
Stop flooding our bags with currency items to force “engagement” with NPCs to artificially boost MAU metrics. It’s airport oribos all over again.
Currently playing old content because I like the grind. I avoid the current xpac regardless of content as they’re always held hostage by systems that ruin them. I like DF but not the freemium game trashing systems they pull. Gearing in this game is meaningless/valueless, so there is literally zero reason to play whatever is the current xpac that’s trolled out by Blizzard.
If that gear doesn’t then disappear into the nether if you don’t get it, I don’t care. Seems like it’s what the trading post is though.
I never really cared for professions. Some bloke will always farm it and then I just need the mats, which I would have needed were it me. The only thing I would change is up the drop rate of the patterns, and make it BoP or BoA for good measure.
It’s nowhere near as bad as the different anima currency flooding the bag since we have a reagent bag, but it can still be aggravating, particularly if you partake in various levels of content.
So excited the excessive timegating on LFR has been reduced!
Any word on whether or not heroic/timewalking dungeon gear will be getting another ilvl bump like it did for Season 2 and the Aberrus raid launch?
Currently heroics/timewalking drop 389 gear, which is enough to meet the 386 minimum for Aberrus LFR, but it will be far short for the new 424 minimum for Amirdrassil LFR. Is the intent for new and returning players not to gear up via dungeons for LFR, but rather by participating in the new world events instead?
I don’t know if they’ve stated directly that the ilvl of heroic/timewalking rewards will be increased but it’s inconceivable that they wouldn’t be, especially since they’re now making heroic/timewalking dungeons contribute to Great Vault loot.
