    Is there a point raiding after the last boss is killed in Heroic?

    After all, the hardest part has been already claimed. It's like in a sports championship, you don't continue playing once the winner is announced.

    There's this concept called "fun." I know it's foreign to most of the people on this forum, but perhaps you should look into it; there's a school of thought that suggests it's integral to why people play games.

    Yes, for the enjoyment of doing it yourself.

    there are 2 points:

    1 - sharpening your skills for the next expansion. if you stop, you get rusty.

    2 - having fun

    For world race competitive guilds the point is to gear alts and prep for the next xpac/tier.
    For everyone else the point is for enjoyment.

    edit: Oh, I thought you meant after you yourself had killed the last boss in heroic. Not after anybody in the world had. Wtf? Why would you cease to do something because someone else has done it? That is childish.

    Gear matters for the next tier/xpac.

    People like mounts/achieves.

    Raiding is *gasp fun.

    Sorry guys, I know how bad you wanted to each get a Heroic Garrosh mount, but someone else has killed Garrosh, so you're all forced to farm it for the next 3 years as a 1% drop rate in the future because there's no point in us killing him any more!

    OP you like creating a lot of inciting threads. OT: Even if I ever did, I'd find something else to do.
    Blizzard do not destroy Jaina Proudmoore's character. Make her who she once was, not full of rage and vengeance.,If you are curious about me or about my writing aspirations, feel free to pst me.

    Mounts, keep clearing until everyone in the normal raid team gets one that wants one.

    And that one concept... you know.. that one thing called 'fun'.

    Those are the most addicted people, so yes, they will wake up and play WoW to gain BIS, and redo it all again on alts.
    Free-To-Play is the future.

    What, you mean like so-and-so got World First H Garrosh, guess I can stop playing?

    Or like, my guild and I finally got H Garrosh down, guess I can stop playing?

    Because the first one is ridiculous, since raiding is about personal achievement. That would be like saying "Usain Bolt broke the world record in xyz track race, guess everyone else should stop."

    The second one, I suppose some people would stop there if that's their end goal. But that is not everyone end goal-- people still like to farm bosses for gear, mounts, pets, fun, et cetera even when the bosses have been killed. Even though my guild raids Heroic modes every tier, and we're shooting for H Garrosh, raiding is primarily a social activity. Even after H Garrosh goes down, we're still going to hang out and raid twice a week because we enjoy spending time together.

    No they aren't. Most of them play very little outside of the race. And there are people that will never set foot in a raid that play 24/7. So don't try so hard.

    By all means!

    -Getting everyone the heroic mounts
    -Selling the heroic mounts
    -Having full best-in-slot going into the server first leveling race
    -Starting up a alt raid to see if you can get server 2nd lel.

    Is thata female goblin mage or a female troll mage? I can't tell.

    As others have said, for fun. But you know that and are just stirring things up. At least I hope you are since if not it's a rather sad attitude toward what is, after all, a game meant for enjoyment.

    For a lot of people who raid it is all about the gear treadmill, for others it is about the challenge. For people who did it on heroic, I wonder how much they feel the need to continue doing it. Sure for the fun of hanging out with friends sure, but I am curious how many people who raid actually enjoy it. If I were to guess at least 90% of people doing LFR sure don't seem to be having fun. I personally never really enjoyed pug groups much either, because while you get more skillfull players than LFR you still get the same attitudes. Guild runs I think can be fun if you actually like the people in your guild.(which I do, but my schedule is different than the majority of people in my guild)

    The reason I cancelled personally is because I don't really see the point of it. There isn't a single tier set for any class this tier that I like the look of, it will all be replaced shortly after the next expack comes out anyway. If it were actually fun(for me) then that would be a different story. But then again I am not normally a fan of repetitive gameplay, the only game that I have played where despite the repetitive nature I still enjoyed, and I have been playing games a loooong time, is Path of Exile and that is because the skill system and the loot system really suck me in and keep me interested.(and even then I have to take a break from it before coming back). The loot system and the character progression systems in WoW aren't interesting enough to keep me interested and neither was the content.

    If you're not playing in the championship you have no reason to quit playing the game once the championship is over.
