It all depends how they design catchup with t16. As it stands to make it into flex you will have a hard time running LFR. First through the t14, then t15 (they improved bonus roll %) and are then vaguely ~500. Which might be enough for t16 LFR but hardly for flex. Capping valor for weeks just to get into flex seems not interesting at all - flex should be more like an alternative for those who don't want LFR and might go for nhc later. Knowing how many pug players are really bad and raidleaders adapted with demanding absurdly high ilvl for invites this would not really help. So if they made normal ToT pugable (some nerfs?) for those with 500ivl it would might help amd the motivation is the 1ilvl more on the gear here compared to t16 LFR.
More content to do - win/win.
Why do we need this????? Why did they get rid of Separate Lock outs???? Why did they destroy 25man raiding??? So they can have more required raids.... Now I will have to do LFR then I will have to do Flex raid and then do my Normal raid..... That is 3 raids per week compared to back when we just had 10m and 25m.... What is the point of this????
I personally want
then you balance normal around like like 525-535 on a per wing basis basically progressively getting harder.
i prefer super high heroic gear'd people. id love to see a full 566 mage (or 570) busting out 900k pyroblasts n stuff even if im not the mage doing so. 553 normal and 536 flex and 528 lfr gear is fine too.
I was actually hoping for much higher ilvls, considering the wrathion quest cloaks are 600 :/
I'd of liked something more like 605/615/645/675, with the final Legendary being something like... 700.
Yes, I am insane and I love stat inflation :x
Please let the LFR ilvl be 521, then it's right bellow the current normal mode thus normal mode raiders won't have to enter LFR at the tier launch to get upgrades.
528 for lfr gear, 6 points above vp gear this tier. Thats the same as the upgrade last time from vp 496 to 502. Perfect.
Why any normal raider would do lfr at 528 when they will likely have 522 upgraded to 530 gear i'm not sure?
If its 521 then SoO will lose interest for lfr very quickly and more people do lfr than normal/heroic. Got to play to your audience here.
So, what's LFR for, again?
I use it to cap valor and buy valor gear/upgrades, mostly, because it only takes 2-4 weeks to gear up in an LFR tier with coins.
Flex might appeal to me but I'm unsure my schedule will allow that even with virtual realms.
