Now that we can actually play them, what do people think?
I’m pretty meh on the re-hash of weekly tasks, myself, so far.
Disappointed it’s so easy to complete all the tasks, actually — not even done with my Monday playing, and already I have to wait for next week to have more to do? Aside from the silver tasks, of course — but the time gate is an artificial and annoying obstacle.
Speaking of annoying: redeeming completed tasks is atrocious. Seriously. Having to go to collect each individual thing is terrible UI, made worse by the fact that getting to that portion of the screen is clunky to begin with. And the “Overview” has to be passed each time? Come on — it’s a useless screen I never need to see, as far as I can tell, so it shouldn’t be an additional impediment (click) on the way to completing the tasks. Just so, so bad. My quick-fix solution for consoles at least is to map RS click-in (doesn’t currently do anything, right?) from the World Map to go directly to Campaign Rewards/Tasks.
Also annoyed at the tax-tasks, but people have already explained why this is bad. No need to beat the dead horse.

I’ve set purple daemons as my PVP defense, so that’s cool, at least. Hopefully others do the same — not that it’s hard to complete the Gold Tasks anyway, but. Little community cooperation is nice to see.
Also realized, for anyone wanting to save time, might be a good idea to keep Explore runs at 4/4 fights to allow for one battle to complete the task. Same for delves—keep ’em one boss battle away from completion, and you can get that done (and a nice amount of Monday seals) in no time.
Gl, hf, everyone. I look forward to hearing from The Horde
