I just got the level 3 Storehouse. FINALLY, right? MY OWN TRANSMOG JOINT.
So I sprint the hell over, all thrilled, and I start trying out different combinations of the stuff I have in storage. This could work with this, and that might go well, and let’s try that weapon, and how about dem shoes when all of a sudden, the @#%$er moves, the dialog closes, and I am filled with nerdrage.
I take a deep breath. I try again. Off Warpweaver Farshlah goes to look at that other box. You know, the one he looked at a minute ago.
WAT ARE YOU DOING
IF YOU MUST WANDER, WHY THE HELL CAN’T YOU AT LEAST STAY IN RANGE
It’s not like I can RUSH! I can’t just mog any old thing together! My combinations must be chosen carefully! They require thought! A solid judgement of color! A sense of proportion! SOMETIMES I HAVEN’T EVEN SELECTED AN ITEM YET AND HE MOVES.
Okay, I thought.
Let’s try organizing Void Storage.
I’m going to click on this shield here, and then click on the second tab, and then click in that sp… WHY DID YOU MOVE, YOU SON OF A MOTHER TRUCKING
I just can’t.
My followers are always birds of a feather, so to speak. Thermalix is swamped with followers who can counter Minion Swarms, and I’ve only had one mission to get a follower retraining certificate. This is a certified pain in the whozawhatzit when considered from the perspective of my Plan: Gobligeddon*.
The first time I used my inn to recruit a follower, I searched for the Scavenger trait. I had not gotten a follower with it Hordeside, and Bombelina was in the throes of a resource shortage due to the way a high population server can clear-cut the entirety of Gorgrond in a minute or less. (I have since discovered that if I log on at four a.m. server time, TREES EVERYWHERE.) Once I started leveling this follower, though, it occurred to me that the Scavenger trait is actually kinda pointless. Number one, it’s not like you get that many missions for garrison resources, and number two, the mission probably has a threat said follower can’t counter and will fail in attempting anyway.
So screw that. My current plan is to look exclusively for followers with Epic Mount, and pray to Gawd that they also have an ability that would actually be useful to me (if it’s Minion Swarms or Timed Battle, I will possibly have to punch someone). The higher level missions are always ridiculously long, which I find problematic. I only play for a couple/few hours in the evening, and sometimes in the morning before I leave for work. I’d like to see my
salvage crates followers more than once in a blue moon, thank you very much!
Can someone tell that Tauren representative to get out of the middle of the room? He BOTHERS me. He just STANDS there and scratches himself. He doesn’t walk around, or tell jokes, or say hi, or anything! No, he just stands there like a creepy cow.
Now, about those “
eff over disrupt the enemy” daily quests … I had gotten one from Khadgar’s elemental-thing that wanders around my garrison (I think?), but after that, I forgot about them completely until Cav inquired if I wanted to go irritate some ogres. I next proceeded to shatter Cav’s faith in my intelligence by asking where he got these fancypants quests. He could not get his head around the fact that I did not know. After attempting to glue together the pieces of his broken mind, he finally told me, “that table in your town hall …”
Oh! You mean that troll guy I ignore because he always says the same boring thing to me when I leave the building!
Why the hell did Blizzard make it so that everybody in your faction is doing the quest in the same place on the same damn day? I mean, really. PITA on a high pop server for sure, as you have to be constantly on the lookout for things that aren’t dead. They’re hard to find.
* Every single active follower will some day be either a goblin or some sort of mechanical contraption, like Pleasure-Bot 8000. Since you can’t search for followers by race (or, errr, metal type?), retraining certificates would make this much easier!
