I thought I should let everyone know about this. I'm reconsidering some choices I've made regarding WoW. Read the comment on this post for a bit more info.
So, I've been stressed out with World of Warcraft for a while. And I've set out to make my objective to obtain the mounts I want, and quest through the game to play the the lore. But the mounts have been the most, frustrating, time confusing parts of the game to me. It hasn't been fun, it's been nothing but stress. The lack of bug fixes, the RNG, the way it's locked behind skill walls. I can definitely do those skill wall parts. Problem is, once I get that far, how am I supposed to get that mount? This is the problem with not everyone in the raid getting one. It just makes it unfair for those that want the mount and can't because everyone else has got theirs. And there's no reason to do that raid anymore for the owners unless it's out of generosity.
I was feeling down after that. Shadowlands has been announced. And the entire panels around it, bought up nothing about fixing the issues in the game regarding RNG being required to progress. And the lack of bug fixing was never bought up by anyone. There's so many bugs in the game, it's unbelievable.
I get they are understaffed, but there is no excuse why you can't just not make new content for a while.
Earlier today, I was gonna attempt Glory of the Legion Hero, which I already have the achievements for, the grouped ones mainly. And strangely enough, there are bugged achievements in Vault of the Wardens. "Who's Scared Of The Dark" and "A Specter, Illuminated". Both of these are currently impossible to do. It's bugged. There were bug reports for this the moment BFA came out, and it hasn't been fixed. I'm realizing there's some crap going on this game that I'm just getting burnt out from. Come December when the Jingle Jam is on, I'm gonna grind the dungeon reps for the mounts, just to get the Heavenly Azure Drake.
What pushed me over the edge today was those bugged achievements. I worked my way there, did everything carefully, and I can't even do them because they are not working as intended. And have not been patched. I realized I need to take a break from this game every so often. So I may dedicate one day to doing stuff in the game (Excluding Paragon mounts which I am working towards, I fucking despise them with a passion. I just hope the person who designed it no longer works in the gaming industry). Those are the only things to work towards daily, which missing a day could have a big negative impact on it. I have 5/9 of the mounts. All Felcrushers, the Dreamweaver unicorn thing, the Llothien Prowler (Fuck yes, I love this mount). That's it. Still haven't got the Carpet, the Hippogryph, the Moose, or the Stormdrake. I really want the Stormdrake. Not to mention, the other RNG mounts in the expansion. I still need two Fel Spotted egg mounts, and a couple rares, but I can't be bothered with them unless I'm desperate.
I dunno what I'm gonna do. I lost it earlier, but after a walk, I had a clear mind, kinda realized I wanted to keep playing for the questing at least, the only part of the game that works and is fun. This affects me here because it means content is going to be coming out quicker. I do a lot of projects on the side too. I do quite a lot during my day. I don't recall ever wasting a second doing nothing. I'm extremely productive and failure in doing so just makes me weak. As each day goes by, I feel like I forget something. It only scares me when I realize I'm forgetting good knowledge. One thing I never want to forget about life is how far you can get with peace and love. Being violent doesn't ever solve anything. It only adds to a list of problems. I think of it as the tree method. Start with the root. The root could be say, a murder. Now move up the root. You got police getting involved, you got the upset family, you got the list of culprits somewhere up there. And eventually, it branches off there too. Like, where do you go from there? What of the victim's families? And if they have a solution, where will that make them end up? Life is filled with things we cannot comprehend. The future is one of them. We need to work together to survive, to be stronger. And it's important to not lose sight of nature, since it speaks much more truth, and gives more answers than humanity ever will.
