Yeah, I'm only doing the dailies there once or twice a week, I don't have time to sit down and do that daily, and I'm certainly not going to once I'm valor capped (nor am I going to spread out my time to aid in that).

Besides... unless you are a blacksmith, I see absolutely no incentive to unlock the rest of the island. Blizz really screwed up on this, because there really is no incentive for anyone else.

Engineers get to create a new part THAT IS TOTALLY USELESS BECAUSE BLIZZ REMOVED THE ITEMS THAT NEED IT.

There is the new "world boss" but considering my curse of RNG, that's a pointless effort.

So yeah.. Blacksmiths... get to work, the rest of us will be back here at the camp.

I think the numbers are all a shell game. Unlocking seems to be progressing at a steady pace no matter what the participation numbers are saying.

Guild healer when both ToT wings on LFR last night, got 2 pieces, keep bitching about RNG and I'll keep tossing out "sucks to be you."

Like I stated before they have a very specific method to count progression towards unlocking.

1) You have to visit the island at least once that day.
2) You do one daily.
3) You have full participation for the day.

You don't count towards it if you never visit the island.

Sa participation percent is totally meaningless because people who have zero desire to do the dailies will go to the island to raid pushing down participation percent.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

But the point remains, unless you are a blacksmith, who cares?... If they wanted participation, they should have locked the raid behind it. As it stands, only the BSers care (and the daily addicts).

Exactly. Who cares, except for people who want to do it. Three people could visit the island every day and do a grand total of 3 daily quests and you'll have 100% participation. Or you could be on a super high pop realm and have 1000 people visit the island on a day with 900 of them being raiders and 100 doing dailies and have 10% participation.

Why the fuck are people complaining that optional daily content is fucking optional yet people bitch that the previous optional daily content was "required."

Can't win. Don't try.

Probably because Nalak is the big reward at the end of all the unlocking?

Yeah, you're all forgetting that progression rate on the island decides how soon the raid boss that drops tier starts spawning.

(On our server, it looks like we might possibly hit stage 4 today.)

*shrug*

There's just so much weighting to count participation levels that unlocking is a steady process that never goes too fast or too slow. We were at 19% or so Participation last night and really close to unlocking phase 4. Like I said earlier it is a shell game, or a thermostat that lets you push buttons to change numbers but doesn't actually change the temperature.

If this is in relation to the RNG for world boss loot that was Halabar saying that not me.

Punch Sagara, I will pay you the going rate. Can you send Ami a lit bomb as well for me? Make sure it is gift wrapped.

Klaud won't send me a bomb. I'd just punt it right back. :D

So, did I ever tell you about my panda monk? She's Mistweaver/Windwalker, but I haaaaaaate Windwalker.

She also thinks you're pretty cute, and wants to have some Special Snuggle Time with you, Bara.

Never said I wasn't going to do a world boss. You are mistaking that with me not wanting to bust my ass on dailies to unlock said boss a week earlier (if that is even possible) or even a day earlier. Let all the BS's unlock all that shit.

Realizing I'm a BS and have stopped doing dailies is making me slightly uncomfortable in this thread. Guess I'll get back to doing them on my alt. Argh.

I'm not sure you actually unlock it slower or faster by not doing them if you don't go to the island. May only slow it down if you visit it and don't do anything.

Well considering doing ONE daily is considered participation for your entire account "busting your ass" isn't necessary. You could do one or one million dailies on your account and that meter wouldn't move a tick farther.
