Christ, what is there to be excited about in Cata?Everything? ZG gone as a raid means you'll actually be able to be involved in that area at an appropriate level rather than farming it as an 85 which is dumb and boring. No one was going to get together a 25-man raid of 60s to do that content as intended--this is great news.To all those who still think the sky is falling: Why? Changing the game after this many years is good--it keeps it from getting too stale.
Is nobody actually looking forward to this? Seriously, people, stop clinging to your vanilla security blankets and look forward to stuff! Change is good! Yes, it's sad that all the palces you went to when level 60 was a massive achievement, yes, it's sad that people can afford an epic ground mount by the time they hit level 6, but remember this, those of you who farmed up the quintessence needed, those of you who did the Scepter line, those who gather the supplies, and got yourself attuned to Naxx. Those are your memories. No two bit game company can ever take memories away. I still remember the first time I stepped into Zul Gurub, at level 60. I was barely geared for it, I was in mostly green and blue strength gear, as a hunter, and I was using a crocolisk pet. Stupid, noobish, and fail, I know.Please, stop complaining because 'You've not got the mounts' If you want moutns so bad, go farm exalted with your factions, go get the Frostsaber, the Ravasaur. Earn your gold, purchase the red drake and the Wolly mammoth and the motorbike. But most of all. Find a friend, a person you can trust, maybe three or four, go to Zul Gurub, kill Bloodlord Mandokir and the prophet, Thek'al. Hell, why not kill all the others, and Hakkar. Gather up Zanadalari rep, have a look at the old sets you could have worn, and actually ENJOY THE CONTENT NOW BEFORE IT GOES INSTEAD OF JUST COMPLAINING THAT IT IS GOING TO DISAPPEAR. For Endy's sake, enjoy what will soon not be there, lament it's loss, and don't try and appear like a whimpering &*!@#.
I can imagine it would sound more like:Valnoth: Zul'gurub is gone as a raid instance come Cataclysm...kkthxbai.=/ A very point-blank message, I mean that's it?I'm sure it will turn into something else, like a 55-60 leveling zone with lvl 60 dailies that grants Zanalari rep, and the mounts being rewarded at exalted? I like this idea imo.It's because the place has been gone for beta since... well forever, really.... Since the build that added northern Stranglethorn I think. He just confirmed it.
Quit your QQ. I'm gonna explain this with one sentence.WoW ain't fun without change, I bet NOTHING will be the same in a few years.
if it was because of the mounts i feel like they would have just taken out the mounts. i think probably they're somehow dealing with the issue of how it's a complete area empty of mobs in the eastern kingdoms plane but exists separately as a raid instance with mobs. zul'farrak has the same problem.This reason makes the most sense in my opinion, that they'll just make it non-instanced
omg stop whining over two mounts, two mounts that don't even look good! ......but there's no need to cry over two ugly looking mounts :)Opinion =/= factJust cause every mount isn't a glitter pony doesn't make them ugly.My opinion on this change to Z'G is to wait and see what they do with this, though knowing Blizzard they will pull an Amani War Bear on the mounts or a Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian on them.Personally I don't mind if the raid goes as long as the stuff replacing it is worth it.

Besides, you can still get the mounts, and for the Troll Raid, Zul'Aman is still here... Without the bear.
R.I.P. Good old ZG, I have enjoyed many vanilla raids inside of you.
No... No...! NO! Something very cool must happen involving Loa RIGHT AS THIS OCCURS.
OK, now i see like no point in make a character only for lvl 60. I gotta farm these mounts now :/
OK, now i see like no point in make a character only for lvl 60. I gotta farm these mounts now :/I think the downleveling system kind of put the last nail in the coffin for that concept anyways.
Christ, what is there to be excited about in Cata?Seeing crusty old QQ'ers like you /ragequit WoW cos change scares you. :D*stands on your lawn, refuses to get off, just like Cata refuses to not come out*
Brilliant move on Blizzards part - this will keep a lot of players playing (and paying) all the to the end of WotLK in hopes of farming up the mounts.
crap. Wonder if will see the boss morph modules again.
crap. Wonder if will see the boss morph modules again.Hey. ZG is a quest hub now, and you get to do quests for another raptor.This will make all people have to upgrade to Cataclysm, since Vanilla realms won't exist. Smart move, Blizzard. Make people accept change. /applause!
So i read about this, i went to zul'gurub for the 170'th time, i killed high priest thekal, and.... WTF it dropped, seriously. i ran out on the streets screaming. with tigergasm.

... we better be able to get the mounts from elsewhere..This! I have been trying for 3 yrs personally goddamnit! We cant have it taken away yet D:
"Gone as a raid instance" does not say it's gone from the game. Probably means it's going to be a 5 man dungeon or something else and no longer a raid.this. Although I dont think 5 man would be good enough. I think that would be a slap in the face to ZG. ZG was known for its completion time. Id hate to see ZG become a 5man run.
Removing ZG is a good idea, i mean what new player knows about ZG? nothin they will never play in it.But i do hope that they keep the mounts from ZG and get them in a diffirent way then farming zg for 6 months and no luck.
