Warning: This post might contain teeny tiny spoilers as to what happens in the Tomb of Sargeras raid and beyond. Also, it’s just a rant. Now you are warned 🙂
My happy and exploring posts will be back tomorrow!
Seriously! Blizzard. We need to talk.
I waited weeks and weeks to be able to take out Kil’Jaeden.
I would ask to hear stories and adventures, told by my friends, of what would take place inside Tomb of Sargeras, when it would be my turn. (told in a none-spoilery-way, of course)
Every wednesday I would look to the LFR finder and see if a new wing had opened. I would enter, and be content with not being able to move forward, but instead, just find joy in doing it, a little bit at the time. Staying away from all WoW-related sites, to avoid spoilers. I would cross my fingers, that the next patch would not hit too soon.
Slowly I have managed to built up hype for Kil’Jaeden…Till today.
Yes, yes, let’s just get this out of the way;
Let’s all just be grateful that LFR even exists, so I, someone who used to raid very hardcore – who no longer has time for it at all, can actually get to “raid” and see the storytelling, I know.
But, that aside, I just need to get this off my chest;
Surely LFR got put into the game, so everyone would be able to feel as if they “participate” in the development of the story, right? Giving them a chance to see it too?
So how is it, that the sky in Azeroth suddenly has changed, even before I have went to the Deceiver’s Fall in Tomb of Sargeras this week and rid this planet of Kil’Jaeden? How?! Could you not have waited just one week, after you enabled Kil’Jaeden for LFR? One day?
Staying spoiler free has been no easy task, I tell you. I rarely visit Twitter, granted, even less these weeks, because of it. Or any other media lately, WoWhead and what not, to avoid knowing what will happen. I did knew small parts, how could I avoid it, but still.
To make matters worse, I cannot even follow Velen and Co. into the abyss, after I kill the Fallen Avatar – but have to do so by queuing up and “artificially enter”.
I know, that LFR is “artificial raiding” anyway (really?) but still. What is the harm in allowing me to enter the Deceiver’s Fall in the right way?
I just want cutscenes, NPC interactions, lore, storytelling…
I got into LFR today, and the team had wiped, before I entered, so the interaction between Velen and Co. was nowhere to be seen, either, and I spawned elsewhere too. I left. 30 minute debuff ate half my gametime today. (LFR should really be made into tourist mode, just for the storytelling aspect, I think)
The seeing of Argus in the sky afterwards was a big part of the encounter for me; I know it would have felt so awesome…But now it’s there already.
I was too late to the party. I tried my best, though, but I did not know I should have stayed on Draenor to be kept spoiler free. (Part of me thinks, that having Argus in the sky 6 weeks ago would have been better than now; so close to the “finishing line” for me)
I imagine the majority thinks this is just cool, especially those who level up and have no way to do ToS anyway (heck, I most likely would, too!)- and I know I probably belong to the minority with these thoughts. But thats ok. So it shall be.
I understand where you are coming from, too.
I am on a Broken Isles/Azeroth/whereever strike now. I shall not look at that sky, until I am able to take down Kil’Jaeden, in the way I want. (Why hello there, Garrison, good to see you. Oh, what is that in the sky there? That’s right! It’s not Argus, that’s for sure!)
Well done. You upset your Unicorns and Rainbows-Druid. That is quite the accomplishment. Way to go.
PS. Eliminating the position of Russell Brower is still worse than this though, just so we are clear. Nothing will ever top that.
PPS. I know I am making far too big of a deal of this, and this post is just coming across for what it is; bitchy. Maybe I’ll even delete it tomorrow…I am still going to play WoW forever (who am I kidding, Azeroth and my friends means so much to me) but that does not mean, I have to agree with everything that goes on.
Phfew. I needed to vent…There. I’m so sorry. Had to be done! At least it happens very rarely. I’m only human, after all. A quite passionate one, mind you…
Alunaria’s Avenue is a happy place most of the time, and so it shall be again tomorrow. 🙂
Thank you so much for lending me your shoulder this night, and for listening to me whine and nag and bitch and moan, and here is a happy Orca!
In fact, just because this was such a rant, you can have two happy Orcas 🙂
Tomorrow I feel much better…
Sleep well everyone 🙂
