@threesixteenAnd your arrogant response pretty well sums up everything "people like me" despise about the elitists of this game.Got news for you, friend: there is no skill to getting the "rewards" you remember so fondly. There is no "hard work." There is only time. If you have the time to commit, you can get anything in the game. That's the whole point of grindfests like the questline mentioned here: it all comes down to how much time you can spend in game.Now, if WoW wants to go back to a model where I'm constantly at a disadvantage to people who have 40 hours a week to devote to a game, then so be it; there are a lot of other games out there, and I'll find one that fits my playstyle better. But Blizzard seems to have adopted the philosophy that my $15 a month should buy me the same amount of "game" you get; that's why I'm still playing.I have no problem with there being some rewards that are always out of my reach; that's fine; people who want to spend five nights a week raiding deserve to have something to show for it. What bothers me is when content is locked away from all but a priviledged few. Blizzard's struck a good balance now with hard modes and the rewards that come from them, while still having regular modes so all of us "mediocre" people can still participate.I simply can't understand longing for a time when fewer people could see all the game had to offer.

But it's NOT locked away-you can see it if you choose to put in the effort to see it and not have everything handed to you on a silver goddamned platter.I'm not an elitist. I don't raid, do PvP or any of that. I have a job, a family, friends, outside interests and I understand that if I want to see, experience something I have to make the effort to see it, not whine like a 10 year old. Blizzard has made the process so much easier to see all of the content there is-if you choose not to put in the work, that's on you. Blizzard doesn't owe it to you to let you see everything that others work for. Now put on your big boy pants and start working towards seeing it all. There's a lot I haven't seen or experienced simply because I don't enjoy PvP or raiding, but I don't whine I can't see it, or get the gear it offers. It's MY choice not to just as you have achoice to do the same.
