8.2 has been out for a month and…
Am I exalted with the two factions on either main (Alliance/Horde)? No.
Did I play for more than 2 days on my primary main? No.
Did I complete the meta-achievement for either zone? No.
Did I unlock all the blueprints in Mechagon? No.
Do I feel any compelling reason to log into either of my mains at this point? No.
I unlocked flight. That’s my sole accomplishment this patch. I have zero desire to do anything more.
Leveling some alts is about the only thing that has any draw for me, and that’s probably only going to last until they hit level 110. Getting close to the level cap will likely see the same apathy creep back in.
Why the lack of G.A.F. in the new zones? It’s simply too time consuming. To run 3 battle grounds, 1 emissary, all Mechagon quests, and all Nazjatar quests takes over 6 hours for us. I simply cannot allocate the time for a near-full-time job to a game. Three BGs typically take an hour-ish (unless 1 of them is Wintergrasp or Ashran, then it’s an hour and a half to 2 hours) and the quests for the emissary are typically handled during the time waiting in the BG queue. Either we’re doing something wrong, or the zones are not meant for grouping, or I simply suck so badly at WoW now and have reached a point where I should unsubscribe and uninstall.
