    What's the longest 1st Tier of any expansion?

    Give it a couple more days and we'll be playing in it.

    Thanks Blizz for pacing it out, but less content is less content.

    And on a personal note the worst first tier of any expansion, but that's probably just me.

    Tier 11 was out for 8 months and 2 weeks.

    10th of October (cata launch) to 28th of June (firelands patch 4.2)

    We're currently at 6 months and 2-3 weeks, 13th of November to today. If patch 6.2 launches before July 25th (almost guaranteed to do so), then this was not the longest first tier.

    Oh, I apologize if the OP ruined your oh-so-godlike raiding experience. Don't like it when someone bashes something legit?

    Or did elitism ruin your ability to sensibly talk?

    Maybe OP's family was raped and beaten by a band of rabid calculators. You don't know OP's bundle of sticks story, you should check your privilege.

    Depends what you're into I guess. Raiding has been quite good, best opening raid tier of late in my opinion. Outside raiding it's quite fun until you hit lv 100 and get your garrison done, after that it's quite boring. I'd give it 7/10, but mainly because of raids.

    Yeah, because remembering dates (or checking google) and then counting months/weeks on a calculator totally helps me murder raid bosses.

    He's not bashing something legit, as this objectively has not been the longest first raiding tier. Unless a couple of days is 6 week long, in which case, that's a fairly broad brush.

    Damn math elitists.
    And I saw, and behold, a pale horse: and he that sat upon him, his name was Death; and Hades followed with him. And there was given unto them authority over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

    Cataclysm came out in December though, right? I didn't calculate the days if that matters but still.

    Can't remember actually, I just did a quick google and that date seemed about right, maybe that was the prepatch date. I figured someone else would check

    In any case, even if it is the longest, we'd then have to get into how it's not the longest, because Highmaul didn't launch until 4 week after WoD launch.

    Cata Launched Dec 10th.

    Tier 11= 203 days
    Tier 17 (current) = 181 days (today)

    edited to Highmaul opening day. would be 200 days from launch of WoD to today.

    Ya but who ever separated them made a mistake. They're the same tier it's like separating the onixya lair re-open and ToC

    Was Ruby Sanctum explicitly announced to be the same tier as ICC? I know Highmaul and BRF were. Just like MSV/HoF/ToES were.

    They always make the first tier too short anyway. Extend it by another month so we don't have to wait so goddamn long in the final tier.

But Vanilla = 60 levels, alot of dungeons, alot of zones.. so if you compare it to WoD amount of content released in 1st tier, WoD is nothing. But this vanilla counts Patch 1.0 - 1.4 ... so dungeons in next patches are counted too
