    Oh okay. I hope you are right. 8 dungeons is acceptable at launch, as long as they add a few more later.

    The detail and effort they put into Pandaria dungeons and most likely will be putting into the WoD ones greatly diminishes the low quality BC ones in my opinion. Most of the areas with 2-4 dungeons could've easily been just single dungeons, they just had different layouts for each of them with the same models, textures and design. The endgame has also shifted a lot since BC from dungeons/reputations into a lot more accessible raiding.

    Which is even weirder because the 5 man dungeon content has been in steep decline for long while now...

    Why are we posting in a 4 (edit: derp) month old thread?

    BC dungeons were low-texture messes and had barely any mechanics and shared assets/themes. Of course simple minds only look at numbers. But there were so many bosses amirite? Let's add another upscaled blood elf talking about magic, occasionally casting a fireball.

    Problem with MoP/WoD dungeons is that Blizzard spend waaaaayyyyyyyy too much time iterating each one. Players blaze through them regardless of how much production went into each. That's the only credit I'm going to give BC dungeons. Winged dungeon hubs offer a lot of bang for the buck.

    A game without obstacles or challenges is not a game, it's a sandbox.

    First of all, MMOC should - if they don't already - pay you. Forum would be even dead-er without you and you sure generate a few clicks as well. Best part however is this astute analysis

    Compared to what exactly? I've seen better textures in a millenium past and some of the rehashed TBC surroundings look actually worse than Garadar looked seven years ago.

    And on topic. Yes, the upcoming expansion's creative direction is questionable, the quality of new stuff is and - surprisingly - the quantity as well. Lack of dungeons is just one example. As always YMMV.

    Less 5 man dungeon content at level cap does not mean less content overall.

    Just compare endgame options for TBC as opposed to MoP and possibly WoD.

    I keep failing to see the point of this threads.

    Don't like it, don't buy it.

    I don't know, let's remove the first raid tier and find out.

    Also while really the same they have lower versions pre 100, then 100 lvl version then heroic version of them and also challenge mode. It does require tuning and other things.

    I am not really bothered. I am more interested in quality. 5 or 15. You do each once or twice and it bores you after that.
    Hey everyone, everyone will care about garrisons so lets make that instead of more dungeons.
    Hey everyone, only 5% of people see heroic encounters, lets remove everything past normal.

    Also lets not forget that your opinion is the opinion for the "broad audience of wow players."

    TBC 5 mans were some of the most varied and exciting 5 man dungeons this game has ever had. Yes, there were dungeon hubs, and yes they had similar themes, but thats common sense because they were in the same location. Similar themes does not mean same art assets, or same dungeon. I would rather have 15 brand new dungeons that some share similar themes than 5 new dungeons and 2 rehashes from vanilla wow.

    And how do you know how much time they spend "iterating" on each dungeon? Do you work for their development team?

    Are you stupid or just pretending to be? There's SEVEN new dungeons and ONE rehash. And even without any knowledge on those new dungeons they're already far more superior than majority of TBC Dungeons.

    I'd rather have less dungeons and more raid.

    6 new dungeons and 1 rehash. Also, I agree with the thread. I rather have dungeons back to similar hubs and the whole shindig with the actual use of the summoning stone. Makes it more immersive imho.

    *WOD Announced, 7 Dungeons, less than WOTLK/TBC Expansions*

    How do you know?

    MoP managed to only make a few dungeons and they were largely awful. Definitely not anything as memorable or fun as say Shadow Labs or Old Hillsbrad

    I must be missing something because I generally have no love for dungeons. I queue up, go in, kill stuff, get gear - do I still need more gear? If so, repeat. If not, rejoice that you can move on.

    Very few of these dungeons even have anything interesting about them, the three Dragon Soul instances were the only ones I can remember as being actually engaging. I wouldn't even be able to associate names, pictures, or bosses with more than half the dungeons in BC because they had no purpose that I could tell besides clearing for loot.

    And most of them were in the same spots so they all looked the same - Hellfire, Tempest, Terrokar, Steamvault... not really hard to make 15 dungeons when they're clumped up in groups of 3 or 4 and share the same building, with identical appearances and mobs.

    So only 7 or 8 in WoD? Math sounds great to me!

    yeah sorry but you're full of it

    each heroic dungeon in BC was the same dungeon you did through the leveling process. if you can't remember bosses in ramparts then wow.

    You've just described most PvE encounters in every MMO ever

    I do believe they said they would be adding some later, since the playerbase was a bit upset that there were no added dungeons in MoP. I could be wrong though
    Thank god this game isn't just for Rym, we'd have a pretty shitty time - Me
