When you need to see the next place to go for story updates, where do you look?
I don't put much effort to look for where to go as the game has a new button usually at the top of the game menu that takes us to that week's release. If such a button didn't exist, I'd expect the Book of Lore to let us access the map. And if we're going to talk about the Book of Lore, it should have a section for main story quests as well as one for some of the filler/holiday releases as well. It'd be more organized this way. While it's not too tough to remember what the map names are to use the /join feature, it would be a lot better to have everything readily available from the Book of Lore.
For following along with the main story, which do you find better/more useful?
- Book of Lore's story tab
- World Map's story tab
Now this is a slightly tricky question. Both the Book of Lore and the World Map's story tab sound ideal places to check. I think both are fine. The map is likely easier to get to since you don't have to click on too many things nor scroll to reach the latest story update like on The Book of Lore. However, it would be better organized when on the Book of Lore. Assuming the map changes each week to show the new release zone, it'd be hard to consider the map the most reliable means of following the story. While it can be done through the story tab, Book of Lore should do it better.
Of course, with the Book of Lore it can also be frustrating to navigate. It could use a search function at least. I've been playing this game since the very start back in 2008 and I keep up with the info about it at least weekly so I don't need to rely on the Book of Lore nor the World Map to know where to go, but for the benefit of those who do need help understanding where to go each week, I think both should be improved upon.
But another option would be to create a new command. Something like /release or /update and then you'd be given a message that tells you the new map name. It's simple enough to click on the new button that shows at the top of the game menu on Friday but what's the harm in having an extra command to do the same thing?
And here's some more feedback regarding the Book of Lore's Achievement Badge Section. Could we please give that a search function? I don't enjoy having to scroll for a long time to find one specific shop and I have doubts anyone else likes doing that too. Relating to this, whenever we open a shop, it closes the Book of Lore and this means we have to go through all scrolling again which is frustrating. Any chance when we do click on a shop, the Book of Lore can remain opened in the background. That way we can view the shop and purchase things from it and go back to check other shops through the badges section. If the Book of Lore is meant to be a helpful tool it needs to be a lot less confusing and frustrating.
