    True, but it's clear these are the three things the OP wants to do, but can't due to the fact the content has been heavily gated behind a timer now. Professions where something you could spend hours upon hours doing, farming, crafting and selling, now it's restricted so you can only make things either 3 hours,10 hours or 1 day and your Garrison gives you all the resources you need. So you find yourself just sitting around waiting for things to come of CD.

     

    There is other things, but pushing people into gameplay they don't want to do isn't a great move.

    Crafting is not gated behind garrisons. Do you even play WoW? All thoughout WoD there are resources that can be mined, picked, skinned, disenchanted ect ect none of the above require any type of cool down or gate behind the garrison.  Now if you are complaining about taking 28 days to create a ilvl 640 item well again that is nothing new it took 28 days to do it in MoP and expansioms before.

    After the past two embarrassing expansions (that introduced a few good features to be fair), I am enjoying myself in WoW like I haven't since Wotlk.  Blizzard finally nailed it after all these years.

    I've realised there's a brilliant strategy that means I am going to get an awesome wow experience again, I'm going to wait 7.5 years and get 50 levels of awesome blizzard levelling experience (questing is blizzards trump card IMO) all for the price of 1 expansion - something to look forward to :)

    rpg/mmorg history: Dun Darach>Bloodwych>Bards Tale 1-3>Eye of the beholder > Might and Magic 2,3,5 > FFVII> Baldur's Gate 1, 2 > Planescape Torment >Morrowind > WOW > oblivion > LOTR > Guild Wars (1900hrs elementalist) Vanguard. > GW2(1000 elementalist), Wildstar

    Now playing GW2, AOW 3, ESO, LOTR, Elite D

    "...you send your followers on missions to earn XP gains, gold, garrison resources (used to construct buildings among other things) and more. These missions require a certain amount of time to complete ranging from 10 minutes to many hours which creates a time management mini-game of sorts.

    Each follower has special abilities that allows them to be more successful on certain missions than others. Missions have enemies with varying abilities and if you send followers who can counter those abilities, the greater the chance for success. This chance is displayed as a percentage which allows you to play with odds - should I send a follower on a one hour mission with a success rate of 80% or on a 5 hour mission with a 56% success rate that could yield larger rewards?"

    Heh. SWTOR much? Oh, wait, silly me. WoW has done this all along, was always first, and everyone else if the WoW clone...
