To start with a little history, I have been playing wow since vanilla and have been an active raider since Molten Core.
During that long wow career, I have leveled a bunch of ALTs and currently have 10 90s, an 88 and an 85.
I have my main (deathknight) and a primary alt (priest) which I actively raid normal, and LFR (I have some heroic kills, but don't consider myself a heroic raider). In addition with the current state of wow, if I wish to gear my other alts, I am only left with attempting to run them through LFR which is time consuming (hour+ for each run consisting of 3 to 4 bosses). I don't mind playing but after running ToT LFR on 5 toons and killing the same bosses, I am really burning out on the content.
In the past, with the inclusion of late-catch-up dungeons, I was able to run the raids on my main/alt, and use the dungeons as a progression path for all my other alts.
Here is the possible solution:
I have been thinking about this a lot since the mention of being able to run old content dungeons and what a proper reward would be.
What if the revamped dungeons used a personal loot system (similar to LFR) and dropped LFR ilvl gear? (Not saying include tier sets but just LFR ilvl gear)
They could be updated every tier and give player who are not interested in raiding on 11 toons a path to have them all be decently geared?
What do you guys think? Am I over simplifying things? or is this a possible solution.
Additionally, given the number of wonderful dungeons that aren't being used regularly would revamp and refresh them and give players options other then raiding for progression. If you think about it, you could even do away with valor gear entirely and just use dungeons as a means to progress.
