    People complain about bosses dying in the first week.
    Now they get to complain about them not.

    Wrath had 2 of those bosses with limited attempts and they were both enjoyed by most of the community, I see no reason why the shouldn't introduce another one.

    No, not letting people play the game as much as they want to is artificially extending the tier.

    No crap, if it takes you more than 30 attempts I think its a good time to take a breather and idk watch a movie go outside something other than sit trying a boss for the 31st time.

    Most heroic modes take more than 30 pulls for guilds on first kill. /newsflash.

    Also I like this. At least it's better than just having one hour per reset like on Algalon.

    No, Algalon was bugged and you couldnt engage him anymore after the first pull. We already had feedback on limited attempt bosses, and it was mostly negative.
    Another thing that gets me is the general chat when inside the Garrison. It totally reminds me of every prison film I've ever watched. The prisoners confined to their cells are talking to each other through the walls. Their chat is mostly pointless, vulgar and revolving around stuff they ll do once they get out. This is EXACTLY the content of every Garrison chat I've ever had to tolerate.
    LOL!

    For those that have done 12Hc bosses and want to finish the tier as quickly as possible, this means you can't finish it as fast as you'd be able to if you just had unlimited attempts.

    You've never done early heroic progression, I see...

    Guilds like Blood Legion, who could effectively use each of their alts for an attempt won't mind so much... Guilds with less time are going to get screwed.

    Get your alt raids ready?


    On a more serious note: I don't really mind this kind of stuff too much, 30 pulls can be 2 full raid nights which is quite a lot, as long as there isn't anything related to doing it within X amount of pulls (ToC style). In general disturbing progress like this too much isn't good, but blizzard chose a "when it feels right" approach, which I guess this fits.

    Top guilds sometimes do over 100 tries on heroic bosses.

    Not on all of them of course, but some.

    Attempts don't make anything harder though, it just means instead of actually playing the game you get to wait around for cooldowns to come back up and discuss tactics so you don't waste your weeks attempts, its really not all that fun

    If I remember heroic putricide especially, top end guilds would first use the 30 attempts on numerous alt groups to learn the fight before actually doing it with their "mains".

    I dunno about bugs, but there was a 1 hour timer per reset until they removed it some time later.

    Paragon said they had 500 attempts on heroic Rag before they killed him.
