I’m not sure about them myself. First the cost, the key payout is equal, traitstones are spread out, and there is a lot of other resources.
Most of these rewards can be earned easier elsewhere or as you said, the writs are in too low a quantity. If the writs were more useful, and one of each token rather than the bad ones were given instead, I’d be more fine with epic tasks on an individual level.
The thing is, while with a complete troop collection, this valuation technically is a better deal, but that “less than 20%” is perhaps my biggest pet peeve. I think most would rather a small chance at a nice payout than all these fluff rewards that give us an average.
LTs are a precious alternative to outright keys and can bring a guild together if they get a mythic with team building and a morale boost. One of my newer guildies completed an LT as an introduction, and everyone got a Vash. I can’t believe I have to even state the obvious that a mythic drop chance however “small” is better than a new resource you shoved down our throats.
I really appreciate the efforts here, but can someone please tell 505, or who ever pushed this new task system, that the best methods of gaining gold give us most of these rewards naturally? Pet rescues, delves, ingots, traitstones, etc.
When the literal only new benefit is a few deeds, I’d rather tokens and writs were in the LT pool instead.
TLDR: I appreciate the matching key payout, but I can’t accept trading a mythic drop chance for pvp and explore rewards.
