With this week’s scheduled maintenance, the Community Feast will become available every 1.5 hours, reduced from its current 3.5-hour schedule.
After this change the event timer will always be visible on the map to show the 15-minute meal prep timer before cooking begins, the 15 minutes while cooking is active, and the 60 minutes of dining time for adventurers to chow down on the soup that you worked so diligently on.
Grab your chef’s hat and ladle. On your mark, get set, COOK!
It’s gotten much quieter in the game in the last week or two for those of us not on full servers. I ran the siege on an alt at 6pm today and there was less that half a dozen players at the start, and a similar number waiting for the feast later on. The areas where you need other players to farm the mobs are now pretty empty for most of the day. Making the feast every 1.5 hours means a lot of the time we won’t see the boss. This shorter schedule needed to be in at launch, now it’s too late.
While it might be less fun, it’s no loss. Rep gain actually seems to drop if you raid up. It’s either the grouping or the player number, but in a 30+ raid I usually got 500-600 rep while with just a handful solo it’s always around 1000.
you can always try to look up a group for it on a more busy server trough lfg.
But its not a bad thing when there are not many people there. You will get many more tasks when there are few people around. And its way less laggy. Sure you might not get legendaey 2 soup but the more tasks you get give up way more rep in the end
