"This means that even a month later, the content has NOT been burnt out by the casual gamers. it also allows raiders to feel somewhat superior as they are seeing content others arent, while also providing incentive for players to at least TRY normal mode raids!
If others want to try and burn the content in two weeks through LFR. How is your gaming experience diminished by it? I can't honestly understand what's the big deal on people that isn't you doing something that you don't want to do. I mean, what could you possibly do when someone that is not you storms Mogu'shan Vaults on the LFR...
it also allows raiders to feel somewhat superior as they are seeing content others arent
Perhaps we should just tell the devs that we should close all raids until the Top 10 guilds clear them on heroic, so that they can feel superior to everyone else as they are seeing content that you, the raiders not-as-good-as-them aren't seeing. Does it make sense?"
I just had some serious reservations on even bothering to buy mists.
I wonder what UI that Rogue is using. It looks really smooth

Edit: For those looking, people are saying the rogue UI is a simplified version of TukUI.
Here's a link of someone else using the UI. http://www.wowuigallery.com/topic/tukui-v10

Well, they probably LIKE the nerf. Makes the boring gear grind quicker -> more time for RL / other games.You hardly ever see the likes of Paragon, Method, etc on the Blizzard forums complaining like those idiots.
Thank you very much!
I usually don't use UI pack, thats why I have no idea which this one was, but it just looks awesome! I think I'm going to download every single addon from this pack without WTF files and configure it myself, its more fun than have a complete UI pack!
I hope the legendary items in LFR will stay. It's just a gem, so it doesn't even look cool. Besides, this way more players get to experience the quest and more players will feel like continueing the quest in the next patch. Therefor keeper it in like it is would be quite good to get more people to raid.
I seriously hope the mage preview robe means that Tier 0 2.0 is on the way! I'd love re-painted, high-resolution versions of the classic sets.
Given that they introduced a 25-point achievement for completing Part I of the quest, my initial thinking was that they would make it so that the quest is able to be completed by a large percentage of the population (whether through letting the items drop in LFR, and/or by making the items drop for everyone in normal/heroic). If the drops are restricted to normal AND only one Sigil of Wisdom drops per week, only a very few people are going to get the achievement (not to mention being able to continue the quests for the three remaining 25-point achievements).
I have no problem with making legendaries restrictive, but if that's the case, I think the achievement should be changed to a feat of strength as with all of the other achievements involving legendaries.
So basically, the person with the most OP class at that time will get a legend if your guild intends any kind of min maxing.
So now everyone can get a legendary weapon? Sadness.
And it's why I'm not playing and many others are quitting. There are serious problems when a company can't see their own flaws. I'm not phased by difficulty levels in dungeons but I think they are missing the point. Raid difficulty should be a choice on a guilds part rather then a path of progression. All difficulties should the same gear but the dungeon should be harder. Each difficulty should award different amounts of currency per kill. All 3 difficulties should take the same gear to beat, but higher difficulty should require more skill and awareness.For a lot of people clearing things on a higher difficulty is not content.
The developers consider the Normal-Heroic transition to be part of the raiding progression. Of course, it's your choice to decide if you want to go and deal with Heroic content or not.
A good example of how progress would work this way below. 1 being easy 100 being hard.
LFR patch teir 1 raid - difficulty 15/100 - currency per boss kill: 5
Normal patch 1 teir 1 raid - Difficulty 55/100 - Currency per boss kill: 15
Heroic patch 1 teir 1 raid - Difficulty 70-80/100 - Currency per boss kill: 25 <--- This difficulty never gets nerfed, It should be for hardcore players and nerfs should only occur on broken mechanics
LFR patch 1 teir 2 raid - difficulty 25-30/100 - currency per boss kill: 10
Normal patch 1 teir 2 raid - Difficulty 60-70/100 - Currency per boss kill: 25
Heroic patch 1 teir 2 raid - Difficulty 90 - 100/100 - Currency per boss kill: 40
LFR patch 1 teir 3 raid - difficulty 35/100 - currency per boss kill: 10
Normal patch 1 teir 3 raid - Difficulty 70-80/100 - Currency per boss kill: 30
Heroic patch 1 teir 3 raid - Difficulty 100-130/100 - Currency per boss kill: 50 <-- over 100 = extreme bosses that you should wipe on for literally weeks maybe months
in this setup hardcore raiders can get the challenge they want because blizzard is counting on people to use heroic difficulty for progression.
NOTE THAT IN THIS SETUP YOU WOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO ENTER A HEROIC RAID WITH ANY LFR OR NORMAL GEAR ON. the idea is to make heroics, heroic and as such you will need to progress properly through them. This means that useless players wont be able to kill the content on heroic, just because they are geared from normal.
EVERYONE WINS! hardcores are happy they can brag, they are still rewarded for greater effort and casuals can still feel like they are progressing through the story.

It's great that we don't need to be in a raiding guild anymore to get what raiders get and see all the content, makes for a much better game and hopefully one day raiding guilds will be a thing of the past and the game with just a lfr mode.
