    Dinoriders indeed, come on blizz get more original ideas of your own, more and more of this expansion seems to be rip offs from other games / movies.

    I know that it was only a teaser, but honestly it did not show me enough to get me excited about anything.

    That's my biggest complaint with this raid and all raids Blizzard puts out now. They're always simply linear. Go down this hallway and kill a boss and then take a turn kill another boss, keep going down the hallway kill a boss, turn again and kill the final boss. Ulduar, Black Temple, etc were amazing because of how open they were. From what I can tell by the maps and videos of this raid its another linear place.

    Don't get me wrong I'm sure this raid will still be awesome. I'm just sick of linear hallways.
    Actually if you look at a video preview of the raid you can see that there are a lot of paths you can take towards the end of the raid

    Please, tell me how you did Reliquary before Bloodboil, or Mimiron before Freya.

    Just because the illusion of the "option" is there doesn't mean that people raided the instances non-linearly.

    As long as this game, and min/maxing exists, there will be a designated "correct" way to go through normal modes. The path of least resistance will always outweigh any "non linear" raid.

    I find it funny that people say "ZOMG GAIZ, THERE'S ONLY A LINEAR PATH!" like that is some huge game-breaking thing in a dungeon.

    It feels like people just use that as an excuse to bash the game.

    Clearly people forgot that people always did Black Temple the same way. People nearly always did Ulduar the exact same way, same with ICC, ect.

    Such an obvious cop out.

    A plethora of Heroic raiding guilds a few took a non-linear rout because it WAS the path of least resistance this tier.

    Some guilds skipped Spirit Kings Heroic to do Elegon Heroic. Others did not.

    Some guilds skipped Empress Heroic to clear 2/4 or 3/4 Springs Heroic first. Others did not.

    It was easier to skip and granted more loot, but if you could kill the harder ones by staying linear (Kings/Empress) in a decent amount of time, your guild often ended up with more points on WoW Progress. That is of course what determines guild ranking.
