    Is WoW too inaccessible now?

    I don't have time to play the game for any hardcore Raiding, or play the broken PvP, so I've thought of just pugging Raids.

    But apparently, the game is so hard right now, pugging is almost impossible. Is this true?

    Not at all, I see dozen of pugs doing pretty much any available raid, premade battlegrounds and rbg on my realm.

    I'm so confused. Since when was it too hard? The only time I've ever heard pugging was a problem was Cataclysm's launch.

    So it's easy to jump into?

    Nope - you can PuG all raids. Your success will depend on many factors.

    Of course, you realize that you can also find a guild that raids casually. So if you don't really like PuGging, join a guild.

    No, it's not true. Raids are eminently puggable at the normal level currently even though they won't be walkovers. It's a little early to be pugging heroics I think.

    I see PuG groups all the time for MV and HoF. You can do MV in heroic blues, HoF at 470+

    LFR for raiding
    Regular BG's w/ weekends for honor/conquest
    LFD for justice/valor


    You have the same options as the "hardcore", if you want achivements/titles or more rewards in raiding deal with it, you have to put in the effort if you want extra rewards

    LFR says hi. It is laughable to even try to claim the game isn't accessible.

    I also resorted to pugging since I haven't found a pure weekend raid yet.

    Joined 2 mgv pugs this week, the first one disbanded after 4 wipes on stone guard, the second one cleared the raid with a total of 7 wipes in 2 hours. It's a gamble.

    HoF pugs are much rarer and tend to wipe on Zorlok quite a bit, but it will all be accessible soon enough.
