We have a misunderstanding
The way it was said here, it sounds we wouldn’t need to complete current tasks, but skip to epic tasks and when we complete epic tasks, we could do legendary - if this is correct, then we need c10 mil less to get to legendary tasks, but it’s still c25 mil more than it was. If not, then we just need all basic + all epic tasks which is as sucky as it was.
Idk how major gold gains from explore justifies this - I personally can’t achieve major gold gains cause explore is making me want to poke my eyes out, and I definitely did not notice major gold increases in my guild. Even if there is major gold gain from explore (considering that that got nerfed quite quickly), why wouldn’t that be fixed by reducing gold from explore instead of taking away LTs.
And more guild keys does sound nice, but it will not replace 1 mythic per month for 30 people which is what guilds who make 20-30 LTs could definitely achieve.
