Well... you don't have to get the datacron *shrug*

I chatted with another player that was riding on the balloon with me. It wasn't terribly FUN but it was somewhat entertaining

Turn up your music, get your toon nekkeds, dance. That is all.

TBH, I don't understand the indignation over this. It's one of those things they do in video games to you if you want to collect all the meaningless easter eggs or whatever: jump thru this flaming hoop....now jump thru this flaming hoop...and hee hee, here's a hhop that's not flaming, but will just annoy the hell out of you and a few months later you'll all be talking about "hey, remember having to do such and such back in the day? yeah, that was crazy!" Lighten up. For realz.

I know they want obscure locations and such, but I have to agree... 30 minutes after you get on the balloon. It's not very conducive to managing game play time, but it does reset the IRL WorldBoss (Wife!) aggro counter if you go sit with her for a few!

You are still lucky if you finally reach the datacron.
On the other day, we rode for 30 minutes and then everyone were thrown onto the ground. I was not AFK but maybe someone on the balloon went AFK and it bugged then just threw everyone onto the ground. Wasted more than 2 hours to get that datacron.

Well actually I did some crafting in the balloon, not all time are wasted.

Got the datacron (both those balloon ones). Spent the entire trip yapping to a stranger I met while waiting for the balloon. The topic of the conversation? Star Wars Galaxies
