And to be honest, even people who have raided a long time depended on one person who was good at communicating strats otherwise they were helpless. I agree they should probably try to read it, but to a non raider just glancing at it is going to confuse them. I want to be angry that we have to hold people's hands on even how to use the dungeon journal, but it's just reality and I can't be mad at people just because they can't do what I can.
It seems that they make LFR easier every patch, and yet they have to keep nerfing it. I know it's not raiding school anymore, but... Well, I reckon the target audience will be happy. The box that can't be closed when opened.
I'm just sad that LFR keeps turning into this afk-fest just because people can't pay attention for fights that are easy to begin with, or God forbid ask for help.
PG is also extremely boring, making it through broze without dying from boredom is a challenge
Too bad people report for fun
These days you need to stand in some of the fire and avoid other fire, but you also need to do so while targeting add X while ignoring add Y, and on top of that you have to interrupt add Z so have your focus/macro combo ready for that. By the way, you can't just blindly debuff everyone these days, and not just because they put massive cooldowns on dispelling skills. There are some debuffs that you need to dispel, but you have to wait for the right moment to dispel them or you'll damage everyone in a 10 yard radius. There are other debuffs you ignore unless they hit three stacks because if you dispel every single one of them you'll eventually blow the super special one-fight-only debuff mechanic on yourself and will start randomly attacking your raid members. Other fights you want to let the yellow "debuff" expire because then it turns into a giant buff but you want to dispel the red debuff ASAP because it wipes the raid. We went through phases of standing around for half the fight so that you would have your mana when it really counted to going balls-to-the-wall all fight long but these days we're going balls-to-the-wall and then blowing extra cooldowns at crucial phases so that we can heal through the two or three unavoidable make-everyone-feel-the-pain mechanics.
As for tanking, just about every fight features tank swapping mechanics with stacking debuffs thrown in for good measure. On top of that they need to either turn the boss away from everyone to avoid wiping the raid or turn the boss toward the stacked group so that everyone can share in the pain and avoid one-shotting the tank. I long for the days of tank-and-spank-and-stay-out-of-the-fire. If only raids were that simple...
Personally the majority of these people who say "i don't have time to raid" really just mean "i want to one shot all bosses and never face a challenge" Sure, there are some people who are time locked most evenings or some times even more, but to those people i will just say "too bad." I do not personally have the patience to go and learn how to play the guitar, that shouldn't mean it should be made infinitely easier just for me. I don't have the time that i want to sacrifice to be able to become a top 25 guild raider, those guilds shouldnt all suddenly reduce their hours and rules just for me.
Quite a ridiculous suggestion for anyone to want everything changed just for them.
