Firstly: Do not de-rail the thread or QQ about how LFR should/should not be within WoW, etc etc etc.
Hey all with the most recent blue:
What do you make of it?
A run-down of changes:
- LFR will no longer award higher ilvl on the end boss of each raid, they will now be the same ilvl across the board through the whole dungeon (476 Vaults and 483 others).
- If they decide to give a bump for end bosses in future it will be normal/hc ONLY.
- LFR in future content patches will award slightly better than normal mode loot, however, it will not have power against the previous raids hc loot.
- Terrace of Endless Springs and Heart of Fear are now divided into three separate queues that will unlock 1 week after the previous queue unlocks, example: 1st HoF section. One week later: 2nd HoF section. One week after that: Terrace unlocks on LFR.
I personally checked on beta and these changes have occured and items adjusted as needed. The reason for these changes was to alleviate some pressure on the raiding guilds, so it designed to not interfere with their progress path, you can still run it however. By the time all of the bosses are available in LFR difficulty with the new changes, normal/hc raiders will have had two full weeks to work on normal difficulty and one week for Heroic difficulty with the two new raids (after Vaults is released).
