    only reason we havent finished hof yet is the lack of raiders on our realm. we are currently 5/6 but we have been looking for a healer and dps for almost a month now. No responce at all. If we had the last members we would have cleared most of the heroics by now. We have the skills. Just not the last members. Impossible to find raiders for the guild. And finding pugs is even worse

    Even semi core guilds should be able to clear t14 normal. It wasnt exactly hard. So timing of the new patch is perfect.

    The guild I recently joined moved to our server as theirs was very low population. We managed to get Sha (Normal) last reset, so we're happy we're getting the Feats of Strength, and we've got a good enough team now due to the higher population of the server, to go forward in Patch 5.2 and start clearing Normal Modes.

    I'm thankful the patch is coming this soon, but sadly I am lacking a little bit of gear. I've been farming endlessly as much as I can and still none of the drops I wanted from Normal or Looking for Raid. I just hope I have more luck in TotTK LFR.

    They said the next season starts one week after this one ends. That the new seaon is able to start you need the new gear, so you need the patch. The patch will come maximum 7 days after the season ends.

    Just finished T14 normal with my guild. It could've been a few weeks later progress wise, but for stuff to do outside raiding the time is right.

    My guild just finished heroics including elite protectors last week (sha 2 weeks earlier) which gives us about a months worth of farm time before the new patch hits. I would say that the patch is spot on for us. It gives us enough time for last minute tweeks to our roster and hopefully get those last few drops that individuals need.

    So is it coming out March 5th or the 12th?

    I'm not whining, I'm responding to a question, it's different.

    If it's not for your progress (or even if it is...) it doesn't bother me, which is why I can't see 'sense' in it being held back from everyone while we wait for people most people don't care about to finish content most people don't care about....

    Again, none of this is a dig at you (hence the smiley) I just can't see why you've drawn the line where you have.
    Pure opinion, since that's all the OP asked for.

    Heroic.Is.Not.The.Standard.

    How many times does this need to be said? Normal is the standard for raiding progress, heroics are for people who want more challenge. If we waited around for everyone to beat heroic before moving on, we would still be waiting for Firelands to launch.
    Never said it's the standard. Still, too few compared with other tiers. Dont'give a shit though, I have my 3 fos.

    5th/6th. There's no way in hell they're releasing a major content patch for WoW the same day they release a Starcraft game. Imagine the strain that would put on Bnet (hint: see the Diablo 3 release).

    Im still kinda concerned with the time theyll have to test stuf, 25 mans normals havent even started i feel like theyre trying to rush this for wahtever reaosn and 25 mans may get the shaft cause of that.

    They've got two weeks until the release, plus another week for Heroic testing. It wouldn't be the first time they've run the PTR for some time after the patch released.

    Not to sure thatd work too well, trying to cram heroic 25 man testing together with ppl actualy raiding 25 man normals on live, I sincerely dont think they ever kept the PTR running for heroic raid testing after patch went live.

    Wonder when is a good time to start saving valor. I imagine it will take time to get rep with the new factions and wont be able to upgrade post release of patch.

  15. #255
    Well, I had barely enough time to complete Normal mode. We were statrting Heroic modes on MSV when the announcement for patch 5.2 came. It was actually more a problem on not having enough time to raid like before than anything, and having the core reformulated once due to people quiting.

    I sure would like more time to work on more Heroic modes, but I can accept that requires dedication that maybe I can't put on the game anymore. Still, I think it's odd that so few guilds managed to complete even Normal modes this tier... Let alone Heroic... This may indicate a drop in interest in raiding, overall.

    It sure stings a bit that I probably will not be able to raid on Heroic level anymore... This adult life keeps me away from the game... Oh well such is life...

    There is valor gear available at Neutral, and supposedly it takes very little effort to reach Friendly.

    I'd imagine there is a certain amount of overlap with LFR when it comes to 25 man normal. Given that they added the stacking buff for LFR wipes, I am guessing that mechanically the fights are the same as 25-man normal. LFR just uses smaller numbers. If that is the case, it would take very little time for the devs to do a balance pass on the numbers for 25N. 10H testing is almost done. They should have plenty of time before the patch release to test the 25H fights as well.
    All this complaining is simply further proof that Blizzard could send each and every player a real-life wish-granting flying unicorn carrying a solid gold plate of chocolate chip cookies wrapped in hundred dollar bills, and someone would whine that Blizzard sucks for not letting them choose oatmeal raisin.

    New seasons tend to start 1 week after a major patch, but previous seasons have almost always ended with that patch.

    Season 8 End corresponded with patch 4.0.1
    Season 9 Ended with launch of patch 4.2.0
    Season 10 Ended with launch of patch 4.3.0
    Season 11 Ended with launch of patch 5.0.4
    Season 12 Presumably ends with launch of patch 5.2.0

    25m Normal testing is slated to start tomorrow and Friday and supposedly there's going to be a lot of encounters tested. 25m Heroic will probably go on throughout next week, and it seems they're about done with 10m Normal and Heroic testing.

    Meh, we had about 3 weeks of non raiding when i joined, due to lack of people. But atm we are 6/16hc, probably getting spirit kings this week, maybe will of the emperor too. Could have done better, but im glad we got atleast some progress (were stuck in hof for ages). Hoping to do better next tier.
