Hi Everyone, first I am unable to access the official forums at this time, at work dont have my token. If someone would want to post this to the official forums that would be awesome too.
Since Pinnacle of Storms came out I am noticing that it is very hard to get a raid with no bosses killed in it. Normally I have been getting raids that are either on Lei Shin or on the trash on their way to Lei Shin. I see the issue as two fold. First the Lei Shin boss requires quite a few mechanics which usually some people in the raid fail on. Even with determination this can still lead to many a wipes. I think we were in there over an hour last night with 6 wipes on the boss and my wife and I just gave up and left the group because even with determination we weren't making progress on the boss.
How I see this fight going is every wipe we loose a few people from the raid. Even with determination it just seems people don't want to stay around. So if you are DPS you are looking at a 30 - 40 min queue to get in and have only 1 boss to kill which is very frustrating after waiting in queue that long. After you kill the boss it tries to give you priority for a fresh raid but doesn't always and can end up putting you back in at the same place since it seems that very few people leave the raid in between the first and third bosses in this raid. There was a blue that posted that he stays for the boss he already killed since he can use another coin. This however is not ideal not everyone will have coins left or want to use it on that boss again, maybe they already got what they needed.
So this creates a perpetuating issue. If you are in queue for 30-40 mins you get Lei Shin and kill and then requeue. If you are lucky you get a fresh run after another 30-40 mins but after the 2nd boss you leave the group because you have no need to want to stay for the last boss. I think a fix for this would be at least maybe with this particular boss until people get the mechanics down might be to offer at least some gold for people who stay around to kill him. Maybe not give them access to another piece of loot without a coin but at least give them some gold for suffering through some more wipes on a boss that they don't really need. This issue is especially exaggerated if you end up with multi instances that are all on the last boss in a row which if you drop from them then you get a 30 min deserter but you don't get a hundreds of gold repair costs.
Please share your thoughts on this.
