hc dungeons just to make them harder and new bosses is one thing, what we need is still a better stepping stone to WP/AK beyond, it adds more variation, think you are misunderstanding me.
im already geared for the HM primals and on garuda as we speak, just need a group to go in and kill her, but my point stands is more places to get relevant items at lvl 50 with more variation to do so, more harder stuff past WP/AK is something else in its own right. they need to add more easier instances and not just harder ones, at least im hoping they do this, before WP/AK, cos let me be honest, there isnt, and hence the huge frustration that people have in there, it smooths things out, its pretty rough step to there.
i dont find those personally hard, but my skill set isnt what im concerned about, im concerned about people managing it through, skill will come over time, and i know they intend to add a gear check to those instances, but think of it this way, the most enjoyable way to aquire gear is through dungeons, and be much nicer to have something between the last pre 50 dungeon and WP/AK that isnt hard so to speak
Hardmode instances are being added because currently outside of AK and WP there is no instanced content at max level worth mentioning other than coil(which requires doing AK 60+ times along with killing the primals). Hardmodes will be a stepping stone between(hopefully) darklight gear and crystal tower, if WP and AK aren't enough to get to that point or atleast getting several darklight pieces then it's not a matter of gear that's holding people back it's skill.
you really didnt read what ive wrote, dunno what your dislike is really with smooth transitions, guess your elitist meh i ignore your kind really, but job gear only covers a few slots, AV last boss isnt actually a walk over, its a nice boss, but i guess you havent noticed, the transitions from these areas are rough, they arent smooth enough, and the lvl 50s you speak of are the ones that have been spending a lot of time in game, i know i have to get to this stage, and lets remind you, wow is still a success with its "handout", it has one thing right even if loot isnt an issue, it has a very smooth transition from instance to instance, something ive not seen in other mmos, and lets not forget where other mmos stand shall we
You cannot come into quite a few mmos and expect things to be like WoW where decent high level gear is literally handed out through instances or dailies that can be rolled over(after playing it for 5 years i'm honestly tired of so many handouts). This game is not WoW and it does not try and be it like so many mmos before it(because look what happened to so many of them not long after they came out), in this game if you want gear you work for it and if gear you have isn't cutting it for content that requires said gear then it's time to skill up.
This is a game that came from Japan and guess what? they don't care wtf WoW is and how it handles it's subscribers(WoW is not and most likely will never come out in Japan). If they want something more "hardcore" then that is for them to decide, we only got this game because of the Final Fantasy fanbase over here and some changes to it have actually been to make things more casual because they know hardcore doesn't sit well with a lot of people here.

The only class that really has trouble going into AK with just AF gear is warrior. Everyone else, it's fair game. I'm saying this because I've done it with a group of af geared people. Is it fast or efficient? no, but is it doable? yes. I like the way they have it setup because, even though a lot of people are having trouble with AK, it's not lack of gear or "rough transition" as you put it, it's just a lower quality of players. Not saying you're one of those but it is the truth. There are a lot of people these days spoiled from getting gear and facerolling through content easily in other games and they're expecting it in this game as well. Well, it's not happening from the looks of it, and I like it.

Why would they want to introduce an easier dungeon than the dungeon that people are already tired of steamrolling for gear as it is?you really didnt read what ive wrote, dunno what your dislike is really with smooth transitions, guess your elitist meh i ignore your kind really, but job gear only covers a few slots, AV last boss isnt actually a walk over, its a nice boss, but i guess you havent noticed, the transitions from these areas are rough, they arent smooth enough, and the lvl 50s you speak of are the ones that have been spending a lot of time in game, i know i have to get to this stage, and lets remind you, wow is still a success with its "handout", it has one thing right even if loot isnt an issue, it has a very smooth transition from instance to instance, something ive not seen in other mmos, and lets not forget where other mmos stand shall we
And yeah, some of us don't mind the transitions being "rough" anyway. Hell, that's really how it should be I would think, because some people prefer challenges. This idea that grinding X long enough should make X+1 a cakewalk so you can grind it long enough to make X+2 a cakewalk is silly and boring.
Heh, some classes in MoP could hit 90, solo normal mode instances in their quest gear to get enough gear to move into heroics, solo those, and end up geared enough for the first LFR tier. 5-mans were REALLY undertuned in MoP.5 man dungeons are not hard at all either, you can do it in questing gear.
FYI extreme mode means it's an actual step up from HM Primals. Think like current HM Ifrit/Titan/Garuda -> Extreme, sort of like going from normal to heroic difficulty in WOW.
FC housing is something I'm looking forward to. They didn't explicitly say it but I am 99% sure this will draw on a lot of gathering materials and maybe even some basic crafting. It might make gathering classes worth it on my server!
All things that should have already been in the game on release. Now its lacking end game as hell. Nothing to do but like one dungeon

Housing looks good, but I'm really curious to see the other 2 areas, since we already got to see Limsa's during beta. I'm sure they're just not finished enough to be done yet. Also curious what the cost of a home willl be, dunno how many million to keep back to get one.
However if you want a large house expect to pay nothing less than 1-2 million due to they do not want everyone having a large house(think they actually said they will be in limited quantities starting off).
4 level 50 dungeons
3 hard mode boss fights
1 tiered 8 man raid
2 World Bosses (odin / behemoth)
Artifact weapon quest
With new content on the way when most people are still working on gearing up in darklight gear? Yeah, totally nothing to do in the endgame.

Really excited for player owned housing. It looks like there will be a lot to do involving it! I'm wondering though, if it will be just your house in an instance or if there will be instanced neighborhoods maybe? It looked like there were many houses in the video, so I'm really curious how it is going to work. Maybe they were just grouped up to show the different variations in houses. I don't know! I've never played a game with player owned housing so I have no idea how it could work.
I'd really like to be able to see other players houses without having to join a party with them but at the same time there's a lot of things that could go wrong if they allow too many people in each area at the same time each with their own house.

Curious as well, though I assumed it'd be instanced otherwise we'd run out of place real quick. Maybe an instanced area where a bunch of people have houses (like instanced....neighbourhoods or something). It looks like it could be a lot of fun though! I never imagined really being into the feature, but after watching the video I think I could spend ages customising and just "bumming" around in my very own space! I did actually enjoy that feeling to a much smaller degree in SWTOR where you could have your own ship, so this would be even better!
