I want to share my thougths on how ascension can be better than it is.
I would dicribe myself as a casual enjoying every part of the game. I like to mix some BGs, solo Arenas and Dungeons (M+) with a few raids.
But I really miss the open world. I know you did good changes to open world (like the eso like invasions...) - but I think there are some imbalances
XP Aura delete
I think this will fix multiple prob at once. Open world leveling feels so much slower cause you every time find a dude with aura in bg or dungeon to level. This is in my opinion the main imbalance. I can imagine that auras are a big money mule, but maybe potions are the next one^^
Lower DPS/Buff Monsters
Most of the time monsters in open world are one or 2 hit. There is no challange in killing them. (And often in BGs dps feels to high aswell - but this could be a balancing thing)
Maybe add some custom questlines or whole areas like some vanilla+ servers
Im switching between ascension and turtle over the last.. gosh dunno. They really got me enjoy exploring the world again. The content of wow is played so often - I can understand everyone whos grinding their way to 60.
[ ahh and delete TBC - but thats only me hating this addon ]
