I need frost badgers. 38 to be exact. Since we are working on Sir Lich King and are not going to reset anytime soon, I’m going to be farming badgers from doing randoms and the weekly.
Now, you say, that’s 19 badgers a week and you’ll get them in 2 weeks! Nope, not so much.
- On raiding nights (3 of them) I don’t have time to both raid and then do an instance.
- On some non-raiding nights I may be doing other stuff… IRL!
On a given non-raiding night when I’m not doing other stuff, I login, do my random… and then what? Sometimes I’m done with my random in 30 minutes. I don’t have a million alts. I have 2 alts at level 80, so I guess I could cycle through them and farm frost badgers on them. But who the hell cares if my alts get frost badgers? It is a priority that I get badges on my main, and the alts can wait.
I would absolutely love if we could do our randoms for frosties over the week on our own time. Blizzard may think it’s helping casuals by limiting it to one-frost-run-per-night, but that assumes a casual playstyle that not every casual player has. Many casual players have fewer nights with long playtimes rather than short snippets every day.
