Another end of page post so I can scroll to the previous pages
You are aware that the system can lock dungeons in a pool because of missing item level? So for example: they can tune the new dungeons to 490 and put them in with the 5.0 ones.yeah, that will be fun and exciting for players who have ilvl 502 from LFR. Why even build them, they will get destroyed so fast nobody will be able to tell they are new dungeons at all.
Not to boggle your mind, but the ´separate pool´ was required because the newer heroics were more difficult than the older ones. ie.. players with ilvl 440 wouldn´t be able to handle the new ones.
Everyone below that point will only get 5.0 dungeons.
Everyone above that point will get 5.0 and 5.2 dungeons.
Maximum randomness and 5.0 dungeon folks still get the chance of a raider carrying them through.
The forum goers would still whine and there would be a few jerks that QQ and leave the high level dungeons b/c they could take longer, but we shouldn't design around those people.
I am a raider. Why on earth would I want to faceroll scenarios and daily quest (beyond exalted) mobs with my raid gear? It's not the content I want to play.here is a better solution.. sprinkle in scenarios, LFR, daily quests, weekly quests in order to get your VP.
I hate scenarios. Not only are their rewards pitiful for the time invested, they also are extremely annoying. I am a CLOTH DPS. I DON'T WANT TO TANK mobs because the other DPS are blue/green and we have not even a chance of playing aggro-pingpong.
LFR is okay, I guess... at least I can toy around with alternate specs on different encounters while getting my VP.
For the record: As Shadow, apart from the trinkets, the valor rewards are pretty crappy. So I probably won't even bother with capping them this time around.
I'm a shadow priest and I think they hit the mages a little too hard. Esp when you think about that many ToT encounters aren't exactly mage-friendly.They weren´t overnerfed.. they are fine now.

1. Make new 5 mans that drop ilvl 490 item. (Slightly higher than the 5.2 LFR requirement.)
2. Add them to the 5.0 pool of 5 mans for everyone whose ilvl is high enough for them. (ilvl 460?)
3. Let the old 5 mans drop that gear as well.
And now the twist:
4. Scale everybody's ilvl down to 440 in the old 5 mans.
You could even limit point 3 to LFD runs, so that people who want the original items for mogging can stil get them.
So again, you don't need a separate queue, you don't need updated loot. The raiders who do their daily heroic right now aren't going in there for gear, why would they need to for new dungeons? You make them drop 463, problem solved. I get 80vp and some rep in a new place, yay.
