Gating Content Behind Follower Missions...

Attunement to Karazhan will require follower ilvl of 850. Blizz can make retention mechanics if they want, but with followers thank you very much. Quoting myself so I don't have to type again:

It's literally a time gate, not a content gate, not even a gate where you have to grind something, you just click with your mouse about 4 times and then you have to wait 12 hours. MMOs need retention mechanics to get people to continue playing and all but this one, literally time, something that can't be seen, touched, heard or smelled... is the only thing between you and progression in your campaign. That is bad design imo.

This also applies to campaign order hall missions. Dear devs, people like Legion, they WILL play for months anyway, please reconsider this.

This is false, and based on misinterpreted datamining. The ilvl 850 follower mission associated with Karazhan is an "Investigate" mission, which gives you a quest for some bonus loot, exactly like the existing missions that send you into dungeons or into Emerald Nightmare.

The attunement questline for Karazhan primarily involves Mythic dungeon content.
