Weeee...MMO Champion posters deliver once more...First two pages already full of complaints.
Looking forward to those dungeon challenges. Something for all those "TBC was soooooo great" types. It is a variation on the "You did SH on heroic, now do it in a 45 minutes timelimit" (also applies to Strat in Classic)

- Challenge Mode dungeons will use the Dungeon Finder tool.
I don't really care one way or another, but I think we will still have the same amount of qq in the forums about this.
I just came back to WoW after a short break, and have been running the new 5 mans. If that is the level of difficulty in Mists, then it might be a good compromise. I can still heal stupid, finish my run and get my satchel of useless goods without having my blood pressure go nuts. Now, LFR on the other hand I find stupidly to easy. Even if I can't heal stupid, we generally succeed with no real problem. I've seen both tanks go down and still succeeded. Now that's a head scratcher.
Cataclysm heroics were DIFFICULT ?? Are you kidding me ? Well, good riddance I've unsubbed 1 month ago. Things are heading exactly where I thought. Hello GW2.

Alas, crowd control is another casualty of LFD/LFR and people that totally refuse to learn how the game is played.
Shattered Halls and Stratholme were challenging instances in their time, a time where your tank couldn't pick everything up and let ingrates zerg everything down. Thunderclap was warrior AoE, and it wasn't even available in Defensive Stance.
trust or not, not everyone wants to spend 3 hours in a dungeon

Should be a 1% debuff, everlasting for achieving gold. 5% seems far too much only to maintain a level of challenge in that particular heroic dj. As I can foresee this would be your personal proudness : "Hey look I got 14% of debuff because without it I would BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN (with the lemons)"Completing the Challenge on gold will incur a stacking debuff on future attempts: it’ll start with a 5% debuff, but if you manage to finish with a gold medal time on that run you’ll receive a 10% debuff on your next run, and so on.
I understand we got no real news, no datamine or PTR ... but this Blizzcon ressurect and one .jpg stuff ain't appealing to me. Alsocoming from MMO-C is like Blizzard's Soon and I hate that. Can we have actual news and not ala "Path of the Titans" stuff that will not actually make it into the game ? Can we ?We will hear more about Mists of Pandaria in the upcoming weeks
The challenge modes are strong feature, very strong imo.
My part in this story has been decided. And I will play it well.
Imho gearing != having fun in the game. I can having fun in multiple things, even farming while talking with guildies in TS about random s!*t. Gearing should be affordable to everyone, especially in heroics if they need/want to be prepared for raids. It doesn't need to require much time. I'm not totally convinced about this feature, but it seems a good compromise between giving something challenging to hardcores and making the gearing process available to everyone. Just hope that gold medals rewards are very cool pets and nice transmogrify armor P.S: for everyone saying "but i won't do the same istance over and over", i respond "but you are doing LFR over and over to get gear for you char"; also, you don't need at all Challenge modes gear, since it's all vanity gear
Not looking forward to this. It's just gonna be another feature most people won't give two craps about, because all the Challenge mode rewards are purely for bragging rights/vanity. Like achievements...which most people also don't give two craps about.So yeah. This feature will hardly even be used, yet people are still complaining about it for some reason.
