First off, I like the Timeless Isle.
It gives people something to do, and allows returning players to catch up.
I also love LFR and Flex raiding.
However, the problem arises when the two of these are combined.
What Blizzard has created is a true hell. Screw Satan, he aint got shit in LFR SoO.
What happens now is that clueless players, new or not, can jump straight into the latest tier of LFR with 30 minutes of Isle farming.
This results in the majority of your LFR consisting of dps that hover between 30-50k dps.
Often said players are obnoxious and refuse to take advice, or follow simple instructions.
I literally had a wing 3 of SoO where 8, count em, EIGHT dps were between that margin. This was with 2 stacks of determination.
And this was not an isolated incident, earlier today I had the great displeasure of spending 2 hours on Galakras, again, because of players like this.
Ofcourse, you had this in far lessser proportions in previous tiers, with people geared in pvp crap which they got by afking BG's.
But it has never been as bad as it is now.
Therefore, I feel that something needs to be done.
Lower the itemlevel of Timeless Isle gear, but keep the stats the same.
Increase the required itemlevel for SoO, and make Timeless gear not count towards it, UNLESS you have Silver in the proving grounds.
