    30% Siege of Orgrimmar nerf

    Very simply put, the past two expansions end-tiers were nerfed as time went on. ICC saw the player 30% buff, and DS was hit with the zone wide mob nerf. Do you think SoO will be affected by a nerf of this sort?

    (This isn't a thread begging for it to be implemented, or adamantly demanding it not be put in; I'm just interested in opinions on the matter)

    I'm actually surprised their isnt some kind of growing buff already implemented, considering their passed reputations for it

    Nope isn't needed we've got a minimum of six months before the next expansion (and more likely eight actual), by all means start the nerfs at two months before the next xpac but not now.

    That is what item upgrades are for.

    There wasn't one in T14, the nerf came after T15 came out.

    There wasn't one in T15, the nerf came after T16 came out.

    ...Why would we get one in Siege now? Item upgrades are the new nerf system, haven't you heard?

    I expected that 5.5 would bring some short-lived story quest chain to segue into WoD, and would also bring the nerf/lootbuff up another tier. So they'd up the chance for loot drops on LFR/Flex, and continue bumping up the loot drops on the prior tiers. I want to see 100% drop rates for MSV/HoF/ToES!

    This. They already stated b4 implementing item upgrades that they were made to allow guilds struggling with content to progress on bosses without having to get new loot. If this is true - then they'll have no reason to nerf the content

    Contrary to my prior post, another reason why they wont, is the mount you get just from killing garrosh

    I haven't done the math, but I wonder if the item upgrades are equal to the typical 30% buff.

    However, kudos to Blizzard for implementing a nerf to the game that not only makes people not pointlessly bitch about it -- but like it.

    He's meaning that their past reputation of nerfing the end tier content (ICC and DS) like the OP stated

    OT - Highly doubt it...with the four levels of raiding happening it feels like Blizz thinks there is suitable content for everyone and room for progression for people in raiding

    when new content comes-nerf away. i dont really care. but since they added Thunderforged/warforged + upgrading system i dont see any point in doing so when its a current tier. even if its the last

    Between Item upgrades and warforged gear, the content nerfs itself over time.

    Ideally no one has ever hit the level cap of the last expansion, looked at their dungeon blues, and thought "I win."

    With 2/2 item upgrades & warforged gear now, I don't think this will be implemented.
    Also as mentioned with 4 different difficulties now, this should keep both casual & hardcore raiders happy enough till the next expansion.

    Im surprised we haven't heard anything about a progressive nerf yet for SoO. DS already received its first nerf somewhat 1 mount after it came out, and we're already 2 months into SoO now.
