explain to me please.
You were doing it wrong from the jump if it takes you that long to get to level 20, but that is besides the point of this
Like I stated, this game is obviously not for you. Hell, no game is truly for everyone anyways.
If you do not want to do missions/bounties/raids and grind to get materials to level up armor/weapons, make your character better and participate in other events that the game has, then you will find anything wrong with it to not like it.
As I said, I played WoW and had over 100 DAYS in game played. This is about an 1/8th of that in scale and is not as bad as most of you portray it. Raids in WoW required 40 players and you would go a month or 2 hoping for your class armor to drop, and then hoping that you are in a position to bid/win the armor piece out of the others in the raid of your like class.
Say one boss drops gloves for classes....you will kill him and he might drop 4 gloves....but there are 8 various classes in the raid. Some might have 2-3 of the same class and might not have one that week for your class. If it is for your class, there was something called DKP (dragon killing points). Your attendance and killing certain bosses would net you more DKP. You save these points to "buy" your pieces when they drop. To be fully geared out in that game took quite a long time.
This is more of a grind than Destiny in every way and should be, but I have seen players go into a Destiny raid and walk out with every class armor piece that they need and a weapon or 2. This happens from time to time, but on the flipside, you can go a few weeks and not get something you need as well. I have 2 Warlocks that I raid with every week and even running 2 weekly, it took about 4-5 weeks before I even got 1 chest piece to drop for them in the latest raid. I still have only had 1 helmet drop for them also. It happens like that though and it is random as intended.
Also in WoW, you have to get to level 60 before you can even consider doing a 40-man raid, and even then, you have to grind it out to get the proper weapons and armor before you can jump into the raids. That doesn't touch on the armor crafting, weapons crafting, jewel making, alchemy (potions and buffs) and everything else that you had to do besides from raiding. You can't just log in, raid for an hour and be done with that game. You might have to sit in an area and kill the same mobs over and over again to get the proper material to make something of a higher rank to sell or use for yourself.
Again, not everyone is going to enjoy grinding out gear or missions all the time, and even more are not going to be all about RNG and how random drops are. They want "if I kill this, then X will drop 100% of the time" and this is not the case in this game or most other MMOs for that part. That is what makes certain pieces held in higher regards with the players because they are powerful and not everyone can get them.
