Field Medic Title
I've been having issues chasing the field medic title where the same quest (A fevered letter) has dropped 3 times in a row in Highmountain. is this meant to be the case?

Yeah its a frustrating one but I've missed having something that felt grindy like this.

I'm about halfway to getting mine atm. I had a big hang up in Azsuna, I got the Bloody Note early but it took me a few hours to finally get one that wasn't another Bloody Note -.-

Pop quiz mate, Can we confirm that this is not going away in BfA?

We've already confirmed that this is going away with pre patch as First Aid as a whole is being removed.

You have until then to finish it!

Listen, there's nothing wrong with enjoying grinding. I'm a fan of it myself when I'm in the right mood, it's nice to have something mindless to do.

But I have to say....you missed having something grindy to do....in Legion? Did you finish the other three hundred massive grinds in the expansion?

Oh don't get me wrong I love it.

Nothing else in Legion really felt like a grind, at least to me.

It's a little sad that you feel this is good game design.

I think grinding can be good game design when done correctly and MMOs will always have that element because its a very core fundamental of character progression that represents time and effort with your character. When you see someone walking around with the Insane title you know that person is Insane for doing that grind and it invokes that reaction. To me it's fun content but I recognize it's not for everyone. I think keeping it to cosmetic rewards like titles, achievements, etc. is fine.

why is it developed this way if it isn't a daily for first aid but a quest with a yellow marker

flawed or intentional timegating

team knew what they were doing or theyd hotfix it

That doesn't even make sense as a complaint about it. Yes there's an RNG element to the drop but you could hypothetically finish the Achievement in an hour if you're the luckiest person to ever touch the game. Grinding out Field Medic or other things added into the game like this can take some time. That's kind of the point.
