Thread: LFR in MoP

    LFR in MoP

    In MoP, will we be able to play all of the raids in expansion through the LFR tool, rather than just the final raid as we got in Cataclysm?

    If so, will the LFR gear we get from the early raids be equivalent to Heroic Dungeon gear? Basically, what im saying is will there be something resembling raid progression in MoP through the LFR tool.

    Yes. LFR Raids open one week after the Regular Version opens. All raids from here on out will have an LFR version.

    LFR Gear will be slightly higher ilevel than Heroic dungeon gear.

    This was only because they added LFR with patch 4.3, and didnt feel the need to go back and do the LFR versions of earlier raids.

    Unless they decide to undo LFR completely (which I am pretty sure they won't. Its a pretty 'successful' tool) it will continue to exist for every raids from now on.

    I don't know that we know anything about gear for future tiers after 14 but it would make sense that you could move from LFR-T14 to LFR-T15 after perhaps running a few new dungeons or whatever. As far as I know though, every raid released from now on will contain an LFR version. Since it's extremely popular this only makes sense.

    Yes, all raid instances in MoP will have versions for LFR . The first two raid instances will become available 1 week after release for LFR and the other 3 raids for the start of MoP will be ""gated" and released a few weeks later

    Didnt get a chance to beta or anything like that but hopefully LFR is more punishing and not just stand in one spot 95% of the time and pew pew.

    Mostly that's because normal Dragon Soul was "just stand there and pew pew" except for Yor'Sahj and Hagara.
    Praise the Quest Writers for they give life to otherwise boring expansions.

    I think that's the plan they have going forward, in order to not have people play catchup a la TBC.
