My old complaint against IBS was the too thick requirments for meta achievs.
My last gap was "No Quarter" and "Champions".
I was in need for Forging Steel, last week i did it, my main problem is my choices is to complete was the grind for runic armor(not spending gold), or do the JP in Grothmar to complete "Vixen Steelshots footsteps", i hate JP's, but i realized the grind for armor was worse, than i take 1hrs~2hrs trying the Khan-ur JP and finally did it and get title "Forging Steel".
but "No Quarter" have only grind options: tengu weapons, storm caller weapons, or CW strike x50,(did x25 already).
the "Champions" was almost because i didnt have done yet "top challenges".
Icebrood Saga to me was in general(despite my hate for DRM's) a great expansion. the maps are in art state, achiev hunts was a plus for visiting old places, even being a JP hater, i endend loving light puzzles.
For first time we dont have too much desert centered maps, i like tundra/forest landscapes(drizzlewood), the charr lore, everything there.
beside, i already have did some metas except champions and no quarter, but i guess new players will love less tough requirments too.
i loged in now, and have here the news, finally done all metas in IBS.
