You know, I'm weird about grinding. It's really weird to explain. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I hate it. I think it definitely depends on what part of the game I'm playing and even what type of game I'm playing. If I really want to progress in the story and actually complete the main story, yeah I hate it. It's just stopping me from doing that. And if it's absolutely required to not get stomped, then it's a complete drag. But if I want to do some questing, gathering, thing getting, exploration, ect; it's sort of addicting and I love it.
