The other day, I was logging onto my priest to check some things out. No one in my guild was on, and so instead I was going to log off and play Allods. I was about five seconds away from logging off the game, until I got a whisper from a druid friend asking me for some help with an achievement. I honestly did not want to, but I hardly do stuff with this druid friend. So I decided to help him. He needed help with the Flamewaker Sentinel part of the Master of the Molten Front achievement. Now in order for me to get to that area on my priest, I had to do my round of dailies to get 7 Marks of the World Tree to turn in the Druids of the Talon quest. Well, I goofed. I turned in my 150 marks in to the Shadow Wardens quest, so now I’m out 150 marks. That also means that I couldn’t get “Into the Flame” quest to access the area where the achievement is at. My husband told me I could get Druids of the Talon Dailies; I just have to keep doing dailies until I get an additional 150 marks. *grumbles*…Ok. So when I ended up logging off of my priest, and onto my hubby’s shaman. I’m not sure why, but I ended up doing his shaman’s round of dailies for the day. Unfortunately after doing his shaman’s dailies; my son woke up, and so I ended up leaving the computer to put him to bed. My husband took over and got my druid friend (and his shaman) the Achievement! Grats to the both of you. I was pretty frustrated the other day. Why? Mainly because the whole process took about 2 hours to do. I only get about 3-4 hours of play time a day. So needless to say, I was very irritated when I logged off of WoW.
“It doesn’t take that long to do them” – This may be true to some extent, but I am also very impatient when it comes to my dailies. I am also duel PvE healing speced on my priest, so I really don’t kill things quickly. I also have a very hard time believing that dailies are not a waste of time. (Woah woah, Calm down.) I know Dailies are worth it in the end. Personally, it’s just me. I have a hard time getting over that, especially if I look at it time-wise (e.g I only have an hour left to play, and I only did dailies?!)
Dislike VS Rewards – Dailies are a great way to make gold, especially if you have multiple toons that could do them. So the best way for me to have the motivation is hoping the future rewards outweigh my dislike for doing the dailies. I’m not talking about gold, because I hardly use gold now. I’m talking about the rewards that you actually can access when you do your dailies. That may include mounts, trinkets, pets, or gear. Keep in mind that I actually have to want the rewards enough too. The same goes for anything for me and not just dailies. I’ve been recently going for 100 mount achievement; I am still missing some mounts that you get from reputation, because I have yet done the dailies for them.
Summary – I don’t do dailies, unless I have to do them.
With that said, please enjoy this screenshot from Allods.
