I’m not sure how many people have asked themselves this over the past 8 months or so – but is Legion a bit of an alt killer?
I’m a little bit torn on this. Personally I love levelling alts, and having one of each class at level 100 by the end of Warlords was a personal achievement and I was really happy with that. Even still, I am now half way there to getting all classes to 110, now having 6 of the 12 capped.
This isn’t my issue at all, personally I love the new questing zones and I’m able to cap a character pretty quickly now, knowing the most efficient routes and paths to take.
My issue, is the further maintenance of the characters at 110. I personally feel like the emissary quests are almost necessary, or at least, I feel like I am cheating myself if I don’t do them, on all of my alts and my main. Why is this? The legendaries. I’ve seen a lot of people say things like “If you don’t want to do the quests, then don’t and just don’t get the rewards from them.” – which I totally appreciate and understand. I for one though, feel like they are almost a requirement. That juicy chance on a piece of orange is too good to pass up, especially when the legendaries tend too be good until late levelling in then next expansion, and we’re able to get more than one and wear two (currently anyway).
This isn’t much of a moan, but I sort of reflect on these emissary quests like “If I have 6 characters, that need 4 quests a day, that’s going to take 30 mins a character, thats 3 hours dropped just for the chance of orange.”
So is that worth it? I already work a full time job, so coming home to do 3 hours of quests a night, only getting to play on the weekend then, isn’t really worth it for me anymore.
How does that reflect on you that raid and work full time? I stopped raiding with my guild because I wanted to focus on levelling alts and enjoying the game my way again, but are there any players that manage to juggle a handful of alts emissary quests while keeping status and attendance in a raiding guild?
All I really know now, is that now that 7.2 is out, I am not going to be completing these quests every day, to ensure that I can make the most of the new content on my main. I’m sure that the changes to flying will change how people feel about these quests, but I suppose we will see!
Let me know what you think about the emissary quests in the comments and give me some feedback on how you manage your alts and raiding career all at once!
