I saw a reply from someone who likened boosting to cheating. But then the same people who share a similar say things to people that force boosting rather than boost organic grouping.
You cannot force people to make a group or join a guild just to enjoy the game. Most people’s answer is to boost through anything beyond Heroic Dungeon/LFR because people are forced to premade group. Premades are toxic, friends or no, and no I’m not the common factor if I haven’t even stepped into that content yet due to finances.
Three Pillars? Nah. Not my cup of tea. Old content? May as well, low on achievement points due to too many fights on the forums on my old account.
The game is a better vet than a human. Discord “killed” any social element you perceived the game to have. I put that in quotes as Discord feels like a blessing to use a lot of the time as I use it as my primary Social Media platform. Realms are a thing of the past, at the rate of which everything is connected, may as well take the notion of accountability to the BNet level, like on Discord. If you mess up on Discord royally, you get put on a blacklist by common servers.
If gear cannot be given, do something like Paragon in D3/4/I where you gain power always from doing everything, and pushing the three premade pillars is no longer the ultimate source of power. Sure, it still will be a source of power, but not the only way like it is now and has been since WOD, borrowed powers or no. Builds should prosper and flow, and maybe take notes from Project Ascension, like a lot of notes, regarding power acquisition and flexibility.
Then put people into Paragon brackets and enable a free for all Brawl for BG’s. MMR has to be incorporated into WoW also, hence the vetting comment. There’s no excuse not to, game would be better with “dead on arrival spectator sport” harder queues that clearly work for other games, “MMO” or no.
Finally, make everything evergreen. Legacy should be a difficulty, as should Scaling from a floor level to a ceiling level. same deal with item levels. Gear, other items, instances, what have you. Let JP/VP/Honor/Conquest be useful again!
