I’m progressing nicely into the Legion content with members of KGC (our “Keen and Graev Community” WoW guild). We’ve completed all regular, heroic, and almost all of the Mythic dungeons. We’re currently working on finishing up our Suramar reputation to unlock the last two.
Dungeons in Legion are pretty good. I definitely like them more than WoD, MoP, Cataclysm, and BC. WotLK is a good contender, and I feel like the dungeons are of the same calibre.
I like how most of them feel like an adventure with a goal tied to a story rather than just mindless trash or completing a boss for no reason. A big part of that adventure is due in no small part to most of those dungeons being tied to the zone quest chains.
We’re preparing to do Mythic+ dungeons in the coming weeks which should be pretty dang fun. They’re just like Diablo 3’s Greater Rifts.
Raids are also on our agenda. We want to recruit a few more people to fill in spots. If you’re wanting to raid with us, I’m pretty sure you can do so from any server. We’d love to have you on Fenris in the guild, though.
Our play times are usually evenings, from 6pm PST until most people just want to go to bed. We’re all older, and have no absolute set schedule (yet). Families/Jobs/Self/Individuals first as far as we’re concerned.
The Gearing Up Process
Getting loot in Legion is sooooo much better than it has ever been. Let me qualify that statement with a few reasons I gripe and a few reasons I celebrate the pinata that is Legion.
Loot is individual. This means that you’re not rolling on items or fighting over the same item. The dungeon assigns out the gear to those who participate.
Loot is random. Here’s where I find myself complaining sometimes. RNG (or RNGesus as we so fondly say) can be cruel. I went so long without getting any items at all while everyone else around me was scoring fat loot rolls. I have finally started getting some gear now, and it feels good.
Loot can ‘proc’ higher quality. The same item — let’s just say Sword +1 — can proc as a “Sword +2” or a +3, etc. There are like 3 or 4 degrees of quality. Again, I like this but if you haven’t prayed to RNGesus you might be stuck getting loot that isn’t an upgrade.
Loot can have a variety of stats. So not only is it random that you get loot, and random what quality it is… it’s also random (to a degree) what stats are on there. If you’re like me and want Mastery and Haste, but you get Versatility and Crit… yeah. Grumble.
The Artifact Power Grind
I like having my one weapon. I’m not sure yet how I feel about having to grind the resources to upgrade it continually. So far, so good. I have my weapon’s iLvL significantly higher than anything else I’m using. What I have to figure out is how many of these daily quests I should bother in order not to fall behind the iLvL curse.
I’m moving forward at a decent pace. The RNG of it all is a roller coaster, and RNG being woven into this odd daily grind has its ups and downs. Overall, tons of fun. KGC is looking for more people to make sure we have 10+ on every night to do some content. The goal is to always be available to do things. If interested, let me know!
