Blizzard to WoW testers: Class orders will not be like garrison missions

If you’ve paid any attention to World of Warcraft during its present expansion cycle, you are probably aware that Garrisons have not exactly been warmly beloved as an addition to the game. Now that the next expansion is in testing and class order halls are in place in their earliest incarnation, some players are already calling it the return of the Garrison mission table, a claim which was addressed by the developers with a resounding, “no.”

The core difference, as explained by the post, is that the actual world didn’t contain enough content, thus leading to players having no reason not to just sit in the garrison and wait. Legion is offering players a variety of other things to do and reasons to do open-world content aside from resources for class order halls, which should lead to a different dynamic. Feedback on the setup of the hall is, of course, welcomed by the development team; it’s just a bit too early to be calling doom at this juncture.

So Guild Halls are not garrisons, even though you send Champions (followers) on missions to gather resources for your Hall (garrison) or gold rewards.  Even the interface is the same as garrisons.

Plus every alpha video I’ve seen the Halls function like garrisons.

Yet, Blizzard is saying they’re not garrisons because… there are more dailies outside?  O.o

Indeed. Many people will hate it because it’s not exactly what they want, others will love it because it’s a decent iteration on the flawed garrisons.
There will always be thise that hate it because that’s what people on the Internet do these days…

shaw sbst MatthewWard no, it is not law of the land but, unlike you, he IS in alpha and has used the mechanic so he does have some weight over the dozens of blind Blizzard haters on this site.

Hounddog74 Daily Quests are FarmVille Design and not MMORPG  worthy.
In this Genre you should want to log in for the experience of the game, not because you have to complete your chores.
I dont need another Job.

Actually WoW Dailies kept me from resubbing whenever i was pondering it (together with the Lobby game feeling).

My concern with the Guild Halls is what about us who don’t want to join a guild?

While I strongly disagree about them being the best part of the expansion they would have been infinitely better had they been account/faction/server wide instead of having to slog through that crap on every character. One of my favorite things about Black Desert is that the things I do on one character have a positive effect on my other characters. I don’t have to build “faction” or energy with the same NPC 50 times, just the once.
And dailies in MMOs are one of the worse things to ever happen to the genre. It’s bad enough when you have to farm rep, but it’s even worse when they timelock it behind having to do the same quests every day and God forbid you only play a couple days a week, you’re screwed. Curbing it to 3-4 would be fine, but it would be even better to just have it all available at once with a weekly (or longer) reset so people who wanna knock it all out at once could get it out of the way. It used to drive me nuts that for the majority of any week I’d be doing nothing but dailies because I’d only have a couple hours to play.

Sure Blizzard, we believe you. Next you’ll be telling us you beefed up the development team for faster content releases…oh wait…
The information is out there if you want it, we’ve seen how these things work, they are basically Garrisons 2.0.
