lots of mechanics like dodging stuff
For once i want to feel like a "unit" in WoW. In my imagination a fight were we are part of the battle, not doing the battle alone(maybe something like Hyjal human base but more epic). Like we are in the midle of battlefield fighthing alongside with the army. We will fight the opposite army's heroes or do attacks behinde enemy line like killing general or something witch might involve sneking, fast killing guards/patrols making diversions. OR. Besieging/defending a citatel/fortress. SOmething that will feel like we are part of the army. Not the 10man army whitch goes in the bigbad lair and beheads him.
Imagine for a raid like a battlefield. In the heat of the fight (Galakras is close to this type of fight):
Big battleground. Two armies gathered on opposite sides of it. They clash. And we start killing each other. We the players will recieve an orders from our general like:
1. Breach the enemy frontline at point X.
2. Our line is about to break! Go reinforce point X.
3. The enemy is circling us! Go stop them.
4. Enemy hero is wreking our forces. Deal with him!
5. Enemy artilery is about to come in range and annihilate our forces. Destroy them!
6. Defend our archers
and so on and so on. There might be many objectives, there might be lets say 10 diffrent objectives, but the fight consist only from 5, so each week we get 5 random objctives no matter the order and there might be even bonus objectives for extra loot perhaps. Well i dont see how loot will be done but hell it sound like one dinamyc fight :P
Or defending a castle:
1.Rouge assasins in the castle trying to kill the command core. Find them and stop them!
2.The classic - Enemy is attacking! Defend the walls! And you will be relocated to North/South/East/West wall
3.Enemy is moving a ram to the North/South/East/West door. Stop them and destroy it.
4.North/South/East/West wall is overrun! Go reinforce it and stop it from being overrun
5.Enemy airforces are about ot bombard the castle! Get on the gryphons and stop them(airial combat yay)
6.Some blackop/ninja attack in behinde enemy lines like kill Commander X/ Blow supplyes X/ Destroy Bridge
And many more.
On the other hand i would like the Raids to be like Ulduar, But dont get me wrong. (I started paying WoW in the end of ToC so i dont really know what was the feeling doing htat raid when it was current)
What i mean is that we need ot have and NPC with us. For example in Ulduar we had Brann, Explorer league and Kirin Tor. Also 70% of the bosses we already encountered in a way (Freya and Thorim) and for the reas we all have heard about from teh quest in Storm Peaks (Hodir, Mimiron) and that was exciting. We fought them. They fought with us against Yogg-Sarron. The feel was epic because we had the epic feeling we are part of the story.
Nowdays raid are boring on that level - we only know the big bad end boss (maybe) and the rest of the bosses are just some random(like really random) NPC noone heard about up until they enter theyr room. Shining example is ToT. We litteraly went in there ALONE!!! And from my PoV that felt stupid. Like really stupid. Again dont get me wrong ToT was a great raid instance. What i mean is that we had a wareffort outside the citadel with KirinTor Offencive, Sunreaver Onslaught and Shado-Pan Assault. Three factions witch come from 3 major ones with same name Kirin Tor, Sunreavers and Shado-Pan AND we freaking went in the citadel ALONE!!! None of the leaders or subleaders of these 3 factions went inside with us to help us or altest hear his voice explaining things or explaining who these bosses are a la MSV
I would like to have a NPC related to that raid with us in the fights in a way, like Ulduar, like ToC, like ICC, like Hyjal, Like SoO. Even to have NPC involved in the very fight like (again) Hyjal, like Sinestra, like LK, like (in a way) Valitra Dreamwalker, like Razorscale, like Halfurious.
General idea - make us feel part of the army that is attacking the big bad lair in attempt to kill him. I think this will be much more fun and epicfull
