Sharding has been a good thing and a bad thing but yesterday it became a nightmare thing! Superbloom almost finished, purple bag about to be awarded when BAM the tree disappears and suddenly your “NEW” superbloom is still back behind you not even to the green bag stage and very much not done.
You shrug and say ah well and go to plant a seed. It’s nicely growing and fully contributed when BAM it’s just… gone.
Add this to a day some time ago when we finally found Greenbeard (an extremely difficult rare) in Nazmir only to have him vanish when we were in the midst of killing him. Goodbye pet!
I must say I’m not a big fan of sharding. It’s nice when we’re all packed together with Moonguard and Wyrmrest Accord to have them suddenly all leave, but right in the middle of events is not particularly great timing. Is there a reason we had all that sharding? It wasn’t like we were over-populated on a quiet Friday afternoon.
