Red Skills, are simplified versions of Legendary Skills.
Legendary Skills require you to do 3 tasks that require Attention (type "yarr" in global), or Resource Management (sacrifice rotbeard plunders), or Patience ( fire off skill x times in one day), or wait on the phases of the Moon.
Reds merely make you grind some.
Which is what you were going to do, for one reason or another, anyhow.
So, I don't really understand the complaint.
We now have a way to (hopefully) improve some Toons, possibly Meaningfully, and all you have to do is blow some Raid Tickets.
This sort of complaint is what happens when we forget the difference between a Product, and a Service.
