I might have misunderstood some things, but this is what I gather so far...You are being "punished" for being someone who enjoy LFR by getting gear which has... 1. No set bonuses (because "proper" raiders are unhappy for others having something nice), which 2. Looks awful (same reason?)..... and 3. Us LFR'ers won't get chances to get raid-drop pets since we are foolish enough to like/enjoy/use LFR?What is the point of it then?Personally I will never have the chance, time, work schedule, life, or priority to be in a raiding guild and activly raid. And now Blizzard is basically ruining the fun for us who finally had a chance to gear up half decently without being forced to live like that. Yay! I am sure more people than me has the same issues.At least I am being saved from having to stack up on more transmog-gear....Just seems to me that us casual gamers, who also help keep the game alive, are being frowned upon and forgotten. Well, not "forgotten", but basically shown that we're not as important as the hardcore raiders and PvP'ers.
Honestly I think this sucks horribly. I work two jobs and I don't have time to raid with the guild because I am at work. So LFR was the only way for me to gear up and get set bonuses. If I have no chance of getting any set gear, why should I even play? I can't think of a reason.I agreed with LFR having lower I-Lvl gear.. even lower set bonuses. But to eliminate them totally sucks.
But if you're in raid gear, you shouldn't need to go to Timeless Isle. Timeless Isle = casual Isle. I skipped it in it's entirety since I was raiding. There shouldn't be LESS of a disparity between raiders gear and casuals gear- there should be MORE. If you spent 50 hours working hard at your job, and I showed up when I liked and maybe put in 10 hours a week, but our paychecks and benefits were the same- you'd be pissed and wouldn't want to work there anymore. If I'm putting in MORE work than a casual to get that raid gear, I deserve to get a higher payout for my time invested.
I haven't ordered WoD and I won't be buying it now.
aww yeah, mythic here we come
In the new Group Finder, will the groups be able to run Normal and higher raids or will they be limited to LFR difficulty raids?
