Hey. So i got to level 58 and took the quest to Outland. That quest telling me to talk to Thrallmar mage at Orgrimmar portal room and what not to take a portal to Nlasted lands and walk through the Dark portal to get to Stairs of destiny…
At Orgrimmar portal room.
-Cant find the mage
-Guide tells me to take a portal to SHATTRATH instead.
-Teleport to Shatrath
.Guides player to Stairs of destiny
-A ride with my mount?
-Player terribly confused!
Back at the good old times when all was not messed up by Blizzard.
Go to portal to Blasted lands at Orgrimmar go through to the blasted lands. Talk to NPC standing at the table, go through the Dark portal and
I mean was the phasing exactly for this sort of thing? So that things dont need to change until its time? So that tjhe trip to Outland for example could be done as it has allways been done… I mean the Legion is yet to happen… REALLY it is in the future, not in the past as far as character and Outland quests are involved… Exepy Cataclysm allready messed timeline up so that i start in the future, then go to past from there and hop through time more but with less sense than anything thus far. Even Dr Who would say #Too wibblywobbly".
Was this all really necessary? What made the design of the game so lazt, that all these inconsistencies and confusing stuff was “Must be there”?
Even in just travel point of perspective, why does things need to be made more complicated when they aere easy and well done?
The timeline seems like a mess and with the portals seemingly having limitations and they apparently cant exist in so many places at once and phasing cant fix stuff where it was meant to be the thing to make timelines and such feel consistent and cohesive? Is the engine too outdated even if they say everything can be done here? Is all this mess due engine limitations or flawed design or both?
I mean so much is also removed. Zeppelins and boats that cant seem to be fixed. Parts of quests and intos like going to Vash’Jir which should be possible with phasing like should be possible the assault to Twilight highlands. Well made stuff that has taken time to develop gone waste by being removed.
Finally i found the mage and this made it easy, but it was confusing when the tracker says “Take portal to Shattrath” and the portal is marked on the map while the mage was not. Could not see the mage but that was due my visual impairment. Still, the points i made stand. Especially timeline and cohesive storytelling stuff.
Feels bad to rant so i just stop and try to get to Stairs of Destiny. Good gaming folks
Oh… Please support this if you will. Thanks <3
