Might be missing here, but the portals to the ancient era feel like they’re just there for the sake of it. They don’t really advance the story or add any interesting background info that makes the world feel more alive. Except for the first portal to it, there’s no real sense of wonder since it’s basically bugs, dinosaurs, and plants on repeat.
I’d hop in hoping for something interesting and come out feeling like I just wasted my time which could have been spent advancing the plot or farming.
Here’s to hoping more gets done with the era and if not, maybe it could just be removed…?
