It’s like paying for a steak dinner and getting Fritos because of the hotfix patch and requesting the SH mission requiring progression, *like most expansions*? Lol, you’re silly. There is no reason you are FORCED to do progression otherwise. The zones are NOT locked. Get fellowshipped from a friend into deep shade if you want, or cothed to the door, or have someone else click and remove the rock so you can zone over, same for in Shadowhaven. Zero zones are locked to progression in this xpac. You can be assisted beyond all obstacles. Make friends, ask for help, join a group, guild, fellowship, you have so many options and none of them are forced. Grow up.
