I for one would like to see some heroic 5 mans that feel like a raid. It would seem the best solution for that casual player that feels left out and relieve this pressure to let everyone experience everything and release content so frequently. Where are the Blackrockesc type 5 mans anymore, a 5 man where you enter and know you can spend a good amount of time killing more than 4 bosses and some challenge in there. Additionally, remember how in the old occulus your drake mounts had varying hp depending on your gear level, why not implement that somehow into new heroics, except apply that to the boss/trash health? I hope this isnt off topic just seems like an idea for satisfying this ever growing need for challenge but also keeping current content viable for non elitist/casual gamers alike.
Meh maybe now my guild's 25man team may make some actual progress on easy @#$% made easyer >.>
Personally, I cannot wait for these nerfs to hit. My realm is FAR from a raiding realm, with almost all guilds that do raid not 7/7 normal. My guild has finally put together a good group of players and we were going to tackle Firelands next week anyways, this nerf news, is new news to me. And im excited.
I couldn’t agree more. If they want to make the content accessible to everyone it should be accessible from the beginning, not after a huge nerf. If I can put some effort and after some time I can kill a boss it makes me feel good, on the other hand, if I can’t kill a boss after months of dedication and suddenly they say “don’t worry its being nerfed” I feel like a failure.
hell no they shouldnt, if you cant even do the bosses as they were originally intended then you shouldnt even try. people who want to put the time into downing the bosses, well, down the bosses. all these nerfes are doing are making it easier for the people who dont want to spend the time to progress through it with everyone else able to get it and that's just not right.
Since casters were thiefing the start of Shadowmourne out from under classes.....can't really blame Blizzard for implementing it this time.
But it doesn't make since; they should punish the casters for it, not the people who got their axe stolen.
Too soon! I mean, the T11 nerfs I was OK with, because they weren't current content and nobody would be progressing on it anymore. But with the new raid not even on the PTR yet, this means a massive, MASSIVE nerf for current content raids for people who are still doing them every week, and with 4.3 nowhere in sight!
You and me, bro, should hang out.I've never really seen any pve content that was all that hard.My real complaint about vanilla was having to get gear for a raid that was pretty useless after that raid (a tank problem more than anyone else's), and that it was either run with 39 other people or gtfo.BC brought some nice gear options for non-raiders to grind out, and brought 10-man raids. Better.WotLK brought the option to do every raid 10-man or 25-man, plus it allowed casuals to gear themselves pretty well at whatever pace they could manage. Even better.Cataclysm doesn't seem that different from WotLK to me. I didn't play Cataclysm until July, but it's JP/VP, unlockable vendors and raid content. Only thing missing is an epic off the last heroic boss in a dungeon. Hell, they're even adding three dungeons in 4.3 that should be more or less analogous to Frozen Halls.Lucky for me, people's complaints bounce off my face. It's hard enough for me to pay attention to /g chat.
in my opinion... why not take the time to MERGE REALMS based on population... before going on to new content >_> on the realm I play on(Black dragonflight) it is less than 500 alliance characters (that is including alts.) to.... god knows how many horde.. when the pop is that outta balance, if your guild healer/tank has some issue IRL and isnt able to raid... there is no /2 "LF healer Firelands!" ... but post that hordeside and you will be spammed with replies... not to mention.. other than the original tidal wave, the events of Cataclysm have truly not had much to do with deathwing. it has all been elementals/Twilights hammer. besides the occasional flyby over a zone.. what has Deathwing actually done this expansion?
I think what everyone is forgetting is that it's a fricken game, so stop QQing and just have fun geez. If it bothers you that much, you don't have to play anymore. You're not forced to play this game. I'm a hardcore raider myself, but I don't care what happens. World of Warcraft wasn't designed for just us. It was designed so that all players could have opportunities to enjoy the game that they pay for. It's no skin off Blizzard's back that you're mad about it. So again, all of you who are upset about this need to grow up and get over it or cancel your account, because all of this whining is stupid.
