    Players scream ... We want Ulduar again. It was the best raid !!!! Blizz makes Ulduar inspired raid. Players scream ... Noo that is all wrong, it reminds us of Ulduar !!!

    Can't please them all I guess I am one of those who wouldn't mind raiding another Ulduar, so looks nice to me.

    Zone in, go forward for a couple hundred yards, encounter Marrowgar/Leviathan.

    Turn left, encounter Ignis/Putricide. Turn right and encounter Razorscale/Sindragosa. Go straight and encounter XT/Lanathel.

    Click the portal, go to Kologarn / Lich King
    Copy paste of every instance ever. Go in, fight boss, go to next boss.


    It's my own fault, I keep reading these things and I keep wondering why I am astonished every time at people's ignorance, or the things they whine about :/

    Well its just an image, don't get your hopes high yet, it may end up a stupid linear raid like Terrace of Endless Spring

    I like how people here get so offended if someone doesn't like something. That's what makes you a fanboy if you actually get hurt/mad because someone has the nerve to state that they dislike something. It's pretty dumb.

    But yeah I'm not too excited for this raid. The whole mogu and mantid stuff doesn't interest me. The entire tier of raid content so far has been pretty good when it comes to how fun the bosses are and the challenge on some heroic fights, but for lore purposes and art I just am not into it at all. None of it feels like Warcraft to me. I don't care that we don't have an end expansion bad guy like we usually do, but I do wish we were fighting something we knew about already. Like I would have preferred another Burning Legion focused expansion over MoP for sure. I want to go to Argus or Xoroth a different planet. I think that would have been awesome. Or an expansion solely focused on the Titans would have been awesome too but I suspect they are doing that for the next expansion.

    Oh well.

    Lol really? I didn't think anyone was considered a no life on WoW anymore with how casual the game has become.

    You do realize though most people would be upset if the patch came out during holidays right? And no one said the patch would be out 'when work starts'. It said the PTR would be out then, not the patch.

    PTR, split between normal and heroic modes, LFR... all things that completely killed the epic side of raiding.

    Why are people so sure about Trolls? I mean, nobody said there will be trolls there.

    My bet is most bosses will be Goblin, with last boss, being the Thunder King, will obviously be Raiden.

    You did do the quest line with the Trolls coming ashore in Kun-Lai, retrieving the Thunder King's remains and resurrecting him? There will indeed be Trolls and most likely Saurok (probably wings of the fortress for each).
    I do however like the Raiden comment. This also just made me think of Big Trouble in Little China.
