Frost & Flame Prelude Discussion
I thought we could discuss what we like or dislike about the recent patch.
1) I really like that you can do whichever fractal you like up to the highest person. I've never been in FotM before and now I'm lvl 3 :) Did lvl 10 first (2 of my guild with lvl 11 were in and 3 of my guild with lvl 1-2) which was surpisingly easy (if you have someone in your group who explains what to do at each boss). I died only twice (once a wipe when we did something wrong and once falling off some climb :) ) and was downed due to zero agony resi 3-4 times. But overall a nice experience, even though I generally dislike PVE. And afterwards we did lvl 5, which was no problem either (except the fractal with the huge stone statue...we got knocked off by those blowing faces in the wall quite often :P) So I'm grateful for the patch for finally giving me the oportunity to going in any of the lower lvl fractals and try these out.
2) I like the laurel system. The cost for ascended gear, while quite high (~1,3 (or something like that) ascended items a month if you do both monthly and all dailies), seems reasonable, given you get them for literally nothing (the dailies).
3) While I like that the daily thing has now changed, I had hoped for something more interesting.
4) the Story-"event": Haven't got too far with this one, as it felt super boring...walk from spot to spot, hammer some signs in or light a bonfire. And each NPC (granted: I only did three, then bailed out of boredom...:) ) tells the same line.
But overall I'm really happy with the patch. What do you guys think?
