“Rare”: More than you think?

Usually, near the end of a game day, there’s sort of a ‘relaxation’ period. Last night, Ay got the call to weave the bedtime stories for the crew.

These so called stories are pretty much just sight-seeing trips through zones long past. Ay will jet himself here and there between the worlds. Take to mindless flight, while letting everyone else silently recall their memories of the areas Ay is zig-zaging through.

Ay does’nt do any serious ore farming during these flights, but will ocassionally drop down and pick a few up along the way. Never hurts to keep some stock around. Now then, if he happens to come into a zone which does hold a long sought after treasure, he will take some time to pass over the needed areas. Such as it was for the Storm Peaks, and the long sought after TLPD.

Normally, this is rather a quiet and lonely zone. Very few players of either faction show up anymore. So Ay’s travels through the known flight areas go un-hindered. Something was drastically different last night though, I could hear Ay grumbling all the was back in Org.

His normally free of hinderances, peaceful search patterns were rudely interrupted. He counted no less than 8 other seekers of the infamous, albeit elusive, drake. Everyone of these intruders hailed from different realms. A quick look at his timepiece told him, “Ay, we’re no longer on Fenris soil.”

With all the new realm merging Blizz has graciously laid upon us, will our favorite old rare hunting become even more rare? Obviously, with the number of treasure seekers increased, the odds of finding that treasure will decrease. RNG, is going to play an even larger part in the hunts.

The info you’ve gathered over time about your favorite hunting grounds, times to go hunting and such, is being altered. You now have different realms and their intricities tossed into the pot, so-to-speak.

To be clear now, these are Ay’s personal thoughts and opinions. Others will certainly view things in a different light accordingly.

So, what are your thoughts about realm mergeing and rare hunting? Have you noticed any differences?
