I can understand it too. He is kinda lazy, or at the minimum averse to doing stuff again.
Idk, I have no magic suggestion, except that I bit the bullet when the current patch came out, I did 2 weeks of naz/mech on mage and dh at the same time. I did nothing else, m+ was worthless because it was the period just before it gets harder, so I did just that on those two chars, but it was all going towards pathfinder anyway so I guess I didn’t feel it as hard.
Or if this reasoning is better: I didn’t mind grinding it, because I was working on several fronts towards advancing my chars: flying, professions, essences it all came out of those two weeks…
After a month or so I started on disc and resto druid, didn’t bother with mechagon on druid, did it on priest because I found value in the health redistribution essence. But these two chars were literally 20 minutes a day each. Aight maybe 30, but that’s together with herb farming on druid, as it is the supplier for 3 chars.
Now I have this new alliance dh that I put in really just basics of “work” because primarily I wanted the horse horde gets for completing war campaign on both factions. I played it until that point, now I just log it and don’t do much on it.
