Mostly just related to Bjora Marches.
With all of the complaints to masteries, is anything going to be done to make them a little more viable? It feels kind of bad running around trying to collect 30 essences from mobs, and if you come late to the meta or get downed fighting, it's hard to gain all of the essences you need for the special action key.
Perhaps it works this way already and I'm just missing them, but can the harder mobs drop more essences? Or just have one essence at the end that accumulates all of them? Say, an elite mob drops an essence worth 5 stacks?
Also, the stacks seem to fall off really fast, and the buff doesn't last nearly as long as it should.
Secondly, is the Drakkar meta once per account per day? I did it on my Firebrand earlier and just did it on my ele? Most of the loot from these meta events is so dismally low that I really don't see the point in limiting the chance at getting chests from them. I rather enjoy the meta, but it feels pretty bad doing it and knowing I won't continue to have the same chance at certain items. I imagine even with the updated Boreal weapons being added the drop rate will still be so low it won't matter. This kind of applies to all world bosses though. Like Teq who I've only ever gotten spoons from. The Death Branded Shatterer with the infusion lottery.
It's like you're trying to discourage people from playing what they want to play or working towards these rng rewards, and perhaps somewhere down the line it was designed to increase the longevity of the content, but the drop rates are so bad on the majority that all it does is make people give up and not bother. Especially when you make it once per account per day?
Anyway, I'm sure it's all been said before, and here we are anyway. Just tossing it out into the wind.
