Over the weekend, Guild Wars 2 players on Reddit opened up a discussion about dailies in the game that spoke to me. I used to be the kind of GW2 player who logged in to do dailies every single day because there were always enough of the type I wanted to do that it was fun and rewarding and didn’t take up my entire play session. I never felt like I had to sideline my desired play to do them.
But over the years, dailies have changed a few times, to the point that now I don’t bother. The Reddit thread touches on why: They’re stuffed with content I don’t want to do or that is a huge hassle or that takes way more time than it’s worth, like event completion in annoying expansion zones (some of which my toons haven’t got), daily adventures, daily bounty hunter. Meh. What hadn’t occurred to me is that players who own both expansions actually have it worse; expansionless peeps at least aren’t stuck being assigned to stuff in Heart of Thorns – or stuff that can’t be soloed.
It’s gratifying to know I’m not alone! Where do you stand on MMO dailies? What’s your favorite and least favorite type?
