    They call this incentive? Items should drop more frequently in 25-man, regardless. I hardly doubt any 25-man guild that's on the verge of collapsing into a 10-man guild is going to change there mind over this.

    And WTF is with all these different tiers of loot within the same tier?!?!?!

    LFR mode, LFR pro mode, Normal mode, Thunderforged Normal mode, Advanced Normal Challenge mode, Heroic mode, Thunderforged Heroic mode, Heroic Elite mode, Super Sayan over 9000 heroic tantric mode.

    No wonder there's so much number inflation in this game. And to think that there used to only be one type of gear that dropped for everyone.

    Garalon is much easier on 10m, the damage requirement is much lower and theirs less raid damage, on top of the kiting situation being much easier.
    Ambershaper This is fight is probably the same on 10 and 25, constructs are the same, monstrosity has less life so stacking the debuff is easier, also explosions mean less people to top off.
    Shekzeer. Only 1 person gets visions in 10man, I don't see how that makes it harder, with only one person to dispel, losing people being feared out is not that big of an issue. Also ads don't even need to be prisoned because of their low total health, they can actually be tanked next to shekzeer since there is only one ad phase.
    Protectors is not harder, its on par for elite and normal. The only real qustionable fight would be tsulong, and thats solely on the day phase where ad management and assignments require raiders to rotate more.
    Only one person gets visions of demise in 10m? Yea you definitely know what you are talking about.

If you want a solution, Blizzard, then have one raid size of 15 players. It would be the least disruptive thing you have done to raiding in the past two expansions.
    Try leading a 25man progression raid on a dead realm, and then come to me. Even in the worst of times you can cobble together 10 people, but on dead server, where realm forum activity in the last month has been nothing more than bump posts to recruitment threads of 2 raiding guilds one bieng 25m and the other being 10m that disbanded a week earlier, and you'd change your tune. Back in WOTLK and CATA we could keep our standard were they have been since the beginning of BC but now we've lowered our standards just so we can get back ups and fill the raid properly even with an 80% attendance requirement.

    It'd be nice if they'd take some responsibility. After all they are the ones who made this change and saw an "unsurprising" decline in 25 man raids. Where do they get off talking about it like they weren't involved?

    OMG 2 people get visions. So much to dispel. Please, on top the fact that zerk rage breaks the fear, you 10mans sure love to whine.

Seriously since everything is unique equipped I don't see how your states is really any more relevant to the dps check that was garalon. Not to mention the top tier dps need to carry on garalon (rogues and warriors) up till then had shit optimized gear, well rogues are a different story but at least for warriors, with out proper trinkets this tier carrying was much harder/ is harder.
    Im not saying one is harder than the other. I think both are almost the same some harder on 10 some on 25 man. But what i said about the upgrade system is true and now 25 man gets upgraded gear (thunderforged gear is upgraded normal/heroic gear ) more faster than 10 man meaning that 25 man will get higher ilvl then 10 man. Assuming both are almost equal in difficulty and hc ist tuned for non-thunderforged gear i feel betrayed that 25 man is getting "nerfed" once 5.2 comes out.

    Yeah, my first thought was "Our poor, poor DKP system." We already have a bad time dealing with 489 vs 496 vs 502 vs 509. We have our raid members pay for each item slot once, per difficulty. So if I get a 489 helm out of MV and pay DKP for it, then I can get a 496 helm out of HoF for "free" assuming there isn't someone else paying for it. So yeah, this can lead to people "holding out" and not taking upgrades because the want first-shot at that 496 "real upgrade" and not the interim piece.

    Now we are going to have random half-steps dropping too? So the first person, with highest DKP, gets their 522 item, then next week the Thunderforged 528 item drops; what happens? It's not really fair to charge the first person full DKP again. Charge him an upgrade fee? Someone who doesn't have a 522 items needs to pay full price + upgrade fee to get it?

    What a freakin' hassle. I personally don't care about loot much at all, I'll get it when I get it. I've never horded DKP to hold out on a specific item; if someone drops and is an upgrade I say "Want" and if I have highest priority then I take it. But some people aren't like that, and all they are doing here is introducing more drama. Just keep the Valor Upgrade dudes in there if you want people to bump item levels.

    lol you're completely right.

    LFR is 25 because of difficulty. It has nothing to do with the fact DPS queues would be 14 hours if LFR was 10 man.

    I would have against it if it is a fix ilvl increase, or get something that you just cannot get in 10man, but I am OK with them have a slightly higher chance, just like now it is more likely for them to get gear that isn't going to get DE'd or goes to OS (hence more actual upgrades).

    Since 10man can still obtain these TR amours, I am OK with it.
    I don´t think most people think it is a horrible idea as much as it is just a meaningless addition that will accomplish nothing. 25Ms already have a slight gear advantage ( average number of drops per player).. this will just add a tiny bit more onto that in a different mechanism. They could have just as easily bumped the rate of drops a little higher for 25M.. it would mean the same thing...25Ms will gear slightly faster than 10Ms

    But neither change is going to keep 25Ms from falling apart. It is just a new, complex system added for no real benefit. Do you really think if a guild is on the verge of collapsing to 10M that the guildleader can say ´but the RNG chance you get a thunder-forged item is less in 10Ms´ and that will do anything to sway people?

    In his defense.. stone guard WAS easier in 25 than 10 until they hotfixed it a couple of weeks later.

    What makes 25 probably easier than 25, is that it gives you tons of versatility. I remember when my guild was working on Nefarian 25 man, I went protection so we could have an extra raid cooldown for crackles. In 10 man swapping an extra healer has a lot more impact than on 25 on your dps, same goes for extra tanks.. not counting the many more raid cooldowns, 3 battle rez.. and obviously, you nerf the encounters faster since you get more gear faster.

    While the only thing that would make 10 man easier is the fact there are less people to manage.

    But obviously system is not perfect, so we have fights where 10 is easier and some where 25 is easier right now.

    Hate the pampering of the 25 man whine babies, you already get more loot drops as is that should be more than enough to keep you happy.

    Why? If you can organize a raid, then do it and get the real gear. If you cannot, then just run LFR and get upgrades. If you cannot run regular raids, then you still have progression gear through LFR, and that is the goal.. all players can progress their gear.

    Thats just a side effect, but good luck trying to carry 3 mouth breather DPS in a 10man thats 60% of your DPS having there thumbs up you know what. That same 3 dps in 25man LFR is only 17% of your raid. Sure it will hurt you but get serious here if you cant compensate for 3 slackers in the undertuned LFR you have more issues as well. But try to compensate for 60% of all dps spots being waste yeah thats the reason my friend.

    Does this apply backwards to MSV, HoF, and ToES? Or is it new 5.2 Raids forward????

    its litearlly 1 piece of loot more, the only thing it solves is rng, and even then it can be god awful considering class stacks. I've cleared Sha of Fear for literally a month and a half and last week was the first time a sword dropped, we have 5 dps warriors, a prot tank, and a pally tank, think about it. The nightmare is unfathomable. Oh shit I forgot about our two frost dks.

    To be fair, the only people that actually need to put additional effort into 25 mans is the organizers. Since there is no way to actually identify them (fairly) in-game, everyone who lumps themselves into that size raid group will be given an equal RNG based chance for better gear. I find this amusing because;
    1- 25 man players are not necessarily better than any other player, they just raid in that size group.
    2- The system still doesn't reward the TRUE heroes of 25 man raids, the Guild officers that organize and deal with the drama that that size group must sadly be a victim of.


    But, like I said, no way to really give these people true recognition without the mindless dps that fills the spots getting all hot and bothered. Really, better to not offer any incentive at all and just let the raid size dwindle down to 15 or 10.

    That was one of my thoughts also. The real difficulty with 25Ms is organization. With this change, they are adding a ton of annoyance on the loot distribution of the guild... ie.. the raid-leaders are now going to have even MORE of a headache.

    How do you think 10 mans started? Pandering to crybabies who have dinosaur computers or a million and one excuses why they don't like 25 man raiding aka "i just want purples!"

    Oh yay, more pandering to the 25-mans

    ---------- Post added 2013-01-23 at 03:09 PM ----------

    I raid 25-man on my main and 10-man on my Monk alt, and this seems like a terrible idea

    I guess it's nice to see them making an effort for 25mans but I agree with alot here in that we really don't need more ilvls per tier of pve gear. Going to be 5 levels of a tier now? LFR, Normal, Normal-Thunderforged, Heroic, Heroic-Thunderforged. That's a little bananas. Personally I always enjoyed the BC model of raiding with some 10man raids and some 25man raids but I understand why it's different now.
