    If Loot was to be removed from LFR, would you still do it?

    Would you?...

    Mod-note: After further review of this thread, I think it is best to close it while the time is good. This discussion has come up, like many (and I mean, MANY) before that. In the end, it always leads to some directed hits on users, playerbase or the original poster. I do not find a full reason for a topic like this to exist every month in a new flavour and color. You are getting a nice padlock on this topic, and take it as it is.

    I don't do it as it is.

    Although I don't think this will end well.

    This thread will go places I suggest adding a poll. Just try and make it a decent unbiased one. I'd suggest "Yes" "No" and leave it at that. If you want more usable info, maybe

    "Yes and I do atm"
    "Yes but I don't atm"
    "No and I do atm"
    "No but I don't atm"

    I don't run it as it is. I have 9 alts I still need to get in LFR gear, but I just can't bear it. So no, I would not run it if it did not drop loot.

    No, since the only reason I do it is to gear alts.

    What could possibly be the advantage of removing the gear? It's end game for tons of players, and part of end game is character progression through gear progression.

    No. Will see the raid in time on normal and heroic so an easier difficulty that doesn't even award anything for the time and stress you put into it would be entirely useless. Even with loot I'm only using LFR a few time per alt to get some basic gear and that's about it.

    Would you raid Normal if you didn't need the gear for heroic?

    Why do people find it so difficult to understand that gear is, in itself, content? A large part of the point of LFR is to aid in gearing.

    Not at all. It's all I really have time for anymore, so I use it to gear up my guys for soloing.

    I don't run it anymore. Takes too long. I have 10 alts and working on another and the way I gear them is I go to timeless isle and do Dailies and find boxes around with gear in them. That's good enough for me till new expansion.

    Time for another "I am above LFR so Blizzard needs to change it so I won't have to do it" thread.

    The person who voted yes must have been trolling.

    There would be zero reason to d LFR otherwise. The experience? Watered down boss mechanics with people who have little idea what to do or how to play their classes? Not much of an experience. I only do LFR to help get me some half-decent gear for the start of a raiding tier, though this is less necessary now with flex. Also transmog as well.

    LFR helps me gear up to solo old content and that is something I really enjoy. Before I get asked about the gear color yes changing LFR from epic to blue would annoy me because Raiding in all forms is endgame and all endgame content has epics. It would feel like a slap in the face to me from blizzard just so they could please the 0.1% who still want to feel special.

    To sum it up and I think I can speak for some. If you remove My/Our character progression we will remove our sub.

    I only do it once on my main already just to get the thingy down in the armory all green.

    I only do it for the legendary quest on alts. So if it didn't drop that stuff anymore then I wouldn't do it. I think LFR has actually prevented me from gearing as many characters as usual this expansion, I just can't be asked to do it.

    Hell fucking no. I hate all of you! RRAWRRR!!!

    No seriously, the reason it exists in the first place was never experience but a way of getting gear "up to date" without making 3-4 dungeons every content patch.

    I've already stopped doing LFR, even when some of the loot in there was an upgrade. I haven't been in LFR since I got my last Titan Runestone during ToT. I considered going in when SoO LFR came out, but I eventually decided that not even 4set tier bonus is worth doing LFR.

    Pretty much on the same train here.
