    Karazan a 5man?

    Would there be any interest in Karazhan as a scaled up 5 man in the next expansion. I'm thinking all the bosses to give it an epic adventure feeling. Make it hard, and non-queueable like heroic scenarios or challenge modes. All bosses would drop either heroic level blues or scenario style caches with a chance at epic off the final boss.

    They could split it up into 3 dungeons (D1 = from huntsman to stage, D2 = from curator to aran, D3 = everything else) piss off all the TBC kiddies.

    TBC was released in 2007? I think it's safe to say that the majority of TBC players, even if they were "kiddies" at the time, aren't now.

    Why do we need another thread about obscenities like this? Rehashes are plain awflu.

    And without going into details on why rehashes are foul, there is another reason.

    When people pay real money for next expansion, they expect new content, not Scholomance revamp, Deadmines revamp, or a some other revamp. And very horrible revamps at that. Which came at a price of original versions of instances being taken away from us. Which were something more than "go straight through tunnel to kill few bosses".

    No I want to see new content not just a rehash of something I must have cleared 70 times during BC and about 200 times since. This is also the same reason that those asking for Vanilla and BC servers would quickly get bored of them (which blizzard has correctly realised and why they aren't willing to make such servers).

    More or less this.
    Also, Kara is far too big for a 5man. 5 mans generally have 4 bosses or so these days, so they'd need to do a complete redesign and break it in at least 2 or 3 wings (Probably Lower, Library and upper tower), and they'd need to prevent most of the bosses being skippable. Basically, they'd need to ruin the entire instance to make a messed up rehashed mess.

    Instead of Karazhan call it something else but use the same music, same art work, same style etc. Capture the same feel and atmosphere.

    Also bonus is that the art work and stuff is already created, just re-purpose it for "new" content!

    I think the raid should be left alone, but maybe something in the dungeons of Kara. Put in an instance down there sounds fun.

    No more lazy rehashes, thanks.

    Karazhan itself should be left alone. There are 2 other parts of Kara that can be turned into instanced content- Kara Crypts and Mirror Kara
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    What? Why? I'm sorry tbc was...5-6 years ago? if they were barely old enough to play and understand wtf was going on (12-13) they are now of legal age (in the U.S. I know other countries have different age limits). Plus that'd be a dumb idea Kara is fine the way it is, we don't need another BWL/UBRS where they have instance portals within instance portals...

    I remember somewhere along the line, I believe it was toward the end of BC or maybe the beginning of WotLK. Blizz had more in store for Kara, that it's story and adventures weren't at an end. I'm sure by now it's all been scraped or mothballed.

    I know this would be a re-hash, but given it was one of the more successful instances it might not get the huge backlash that we got with ZA/zg. Making it non-queueable like heroic scenarios would make it more of a "fun" thing.

    Damn, angry kiddie here much? It's pretty hilarious that the only thing you contribute is trying to take a (non-funny) shot at people who played the game like 6 years ago.

    Why not expand the unused crypt dungeon underneath. In any case, no need to butcher another good instance.

  17. #17
    I agree the crypts could be amazing as a scenario or 5man.

    The crypt is better left alone. It's incredibly creepy and atmospheric, and a large part of that is because it's empty and unexplained. Sticking in some of those cartoony skeletons and ghosts would just diminish it.


    That being said, Karazhan itself is fine as it is.

    I don't really want to see Tier 4 going to the BMAH for no good reason. I guess I would support it if there was enough room in the loot tables for lookalikes of all nine sets. I know a lot of Priests who would kill for an Aldor set that wasn't restricted to Mages.

    And you know if they split it into 5-mans they'll probably lose half the weapons like they did with ZA/ZG. Sunfury Bow or Wolfslayer Rifle, choose! Then hope the other (likely the gun, knowing Blizz) becomes available as a drop... an expansion and a half later...

    And His disciples said unto Him, "Can we get Kings instead?"
