I was thinking how long it took to get to 60, then 70. I enjoyed running the content and was not a big fan of the 2x exp because it threw off my progression. When I built an alt, I made sure to get the signets. We had to earn 80 with the UM release. Now I see new folks bolting to 80 in a week or so. There are two concerns that I have with this:
- We have a lot of folks that have not had to learn mechanics and some of these that I have done trainings with were players that only had a month or two under their belt. Others get upset when you offer to help them learn.
- I have seen many new players complaining about not being able to get BiS just as quickly. Many expect R15s and leg mounts. We council our new guild members that we will help, but begging is not allowed. Have had to kick a couple for this.
We have a lot of great content and lore that is rushed past in the the race for 80, then complaints of not enough content. Rather than making it easier to get to 80 and end game shouldn't it be tougher? I am still here because I enjoyed Elemental Evil, Tyranny of Dragons, etc. If players have to earn it, wouldn't they appreciate it more? I know I do.
