you'll have to wait 4 months for a new raid now. And again I fail to see the reason why someone wants to plow through the content as fast as possible.
I'm raiding 3-4 days a week for 4 hours each day and if I had to guess I'd say that we still have 2-3 months of progressing to do before we'll kill the last boss of T14 in heroic mode.
But for some people there's nothing to do other than farming the same bosses again for 4 months. That's double the time that MoP has been out already. Sounds fun I guess?
I think Blizzard did a good job with the difficulty this time. You can't tune encounters to block guilds that probably raid 24/7. There's no way anyone other than those will ever kill such bosses. And for this "rest" 5.2 will probably arrive while they're still progressing or are just done with Sha HC.
I made this thread because it really perplexes me what someone who goes raiding every single day for god-knows-how-long has to be thinking to make the decision to spend most of this time in some dungeons in some game. Or to phrase it more general - to do the exact same thing all the time for weeks if not months or maybe even years (Diablo2 anyone?).
I can understand people that are playing for such a long time but are mixing it up a bit. Some raids, some PvP, some dailies, some pet-battles. But usually there's a point when things start feeling like a chore and most people call it a day. And that's the thing - I can't even believe that people raiding so much or playing things like Diablo2 for years doing the exact same grinding (seriously wtf? there's no new content coming out, what's even the point?) are having fun anymore.
Okay, there's that feeling of competition with raiding in WoW. Being the first to clear the content might be nice but is it really worth sacrifing so much time? SO. MUCH. TIME?
What do you think?
