Timeless Isle has to be one of the worst content drops from Blizzard ever.
Isle of Thunder at least had some scenarios and things for you to run, gave you some story to play through and do, but the Timeless Isles? It’s just a wide open, run around and kill stuff festival with a little bit of pointless gambling thrown in.
It’s most basic target is greed. Of course, you could say that of most of WoW and the apparent quest for purples. Search for chests, kill the world bosses, farm rep, repeatable quests that basically require you to farm stuff. Boring.
I did get my cloak and I was pretty excited about it but the fact that you see a bunch of people running around with them too makes it seem a little less special.
Oh, and the numbers? Getting sorta silly. I still run Heroics to cap VP which I can use to upgrade my gear drops from raids – take a look at this number (no special vehicle was used):
I typically do between 150k (without trying) and 300k (if I use DPS cooldowns). It’s basically impossible for some tanks to keep agro off me, fortunately, things die so fast it’s not really an issue.
Amusing so far. Paranormal Society is up to the fifth boss on Normal mode. The first boss was fun, a lot more moving around and some randomness which I do like better than mindlessly beating on a mob. Second boss was amusing too, but not overly difficult. Third boss is a bit of a resource management task with a DPS check element – gotta sort out the best order of ‘purifying’ people to beat the enrage timer. The fourth boss wasn’t too bad once we sorted out the projection aspect of it, we one shot it once we realized the proper level of pride for projections.
The fifth boss is proving to be a bit of a problem, mainly due to lag and the length of time required to actually get to the boss. Yeah, I get that the whole fight is ‘the boss’ but when you have to burn through a bunch of trash waves to see a the Big Bad, it feels a little tedious. I’m sure we’ll have it soon.
I admit, I’m getting kinda bored with it.
I also gave Final Fantasy Online a look or Defiance. *shiver*
At the moment I have little else to do but cap my VP each week and raid. Yeah, I could do world bosses once in a week, but that’s two bosses once a week – takes about 5-10 minutes to do.
