I never get the gripes on grinding, i think the word should just go away.
The original word (as i think it) of grinding was to sit in one spot, all the time and kill the same mobs over and over and over. Get a level and go to another spot to do the same thing. Who really does this in Vanguard?
ALot of people consider everything outside of questing, grinding. So then the quests, which are the majority of them, have you go kill certain number of mobs or different mobs in order etc.....isnt grinding?
The way people classify it, then everything is a grind. You grind out diplomacy, crafting, harvesting, exploring, levels, skills..you get the point. With everything in this game you are doing pretty much the same thing over and over again to raise skills and levels.
i don't get it. You can do whatever you want in this game and its all fun. So ill see you in Telon, grinding away
