    Best stuff requires raiding. Totally out of line with the rest of WoW. Whoever came up with raiding, really, when we could all be picking daisies?

    I like LFR. I really do, i think it has an important place in WoW.
    But crying because you can't complete a COSMETIC quest in LFR and needing to do normal is such a bullshit. Just pug it. It ain't hard.
    English is not my first language, feel free to point out any mistake so i can keep learning.

    you get the first 2 base skins just by leveling and progressing the basic story - now thats easy ^^

    some of the hidden base skins also are

    I don't even know what you want to tell me, or if you have understood a word that I've said before. I'll just withdraw from this thread and leave you whining kids to it.
    I just hope Blizzard will never approximise the different loottables from LFR and the rest of the raids. Do easy content - get crappy loot. Be allowed to see the content, experience the lore - and be content. You want more ? Accomplish more!

    Btw, by "getting more" did you mean a chance for legendary drops, chance to roll loot to the current max ilvl of mythic gear, full tier sets, and trinkets? Oh wait, sorry, that's also LFR. I guess Mythic gets a title and mount? But normal and heroic really don't have all that much incentive over LFR atm. I think you're just a bit biased on the subject to realize that objectively.

    Like I said earlier when someone brought up hobbies: if you don't put effort into your models, they'll look shittier than those of someone who does.
    all the thing you posted have an higher chance to happen the more difficult the content you do, legs drop more likely in mythic than lfr, the chance to have a piece titanforged to max ilvl in lfr is the same as to win the lottery; titles and mount aren't mythic only the meta mount is not obtainable in lfr but is from normal onward, titles same.

    What is the difference between a artifact skin and mounts and titles?
    You cannot count on luck. Thinking that people will walk out of one LFR run with BiS titanforged gear is quite off the reality.

    You have a reason to do it, if the reason isn't enough don't do it
    Your entitlement blows my mind

    My point is that it is possible, even tho the chance are about 1/1000000000000 (10% per 5 levels of warforge)

    of course, most posters here have never seen such pugs ^^ and dont really know what a true casual WoW player can or cannot do in a pug raid

    As que times increase (as they always have, and will), do you really expect to finish all 3 wings in less than that? Once 30 min ques come back around for DPS (which the majority of players are), there will be almost no difference in time between setting up a run on your own, or wasting time fapping in LFR ques. Hell, with how bad some LFR groups can be compared to an organized normal raid, you will very likely finish normal clears in a shorter time frame than all LFR wings.

    The only real difference is that the latter requires a modicum of effort.

    OP this is probably Blizz way to put an incentive from normal mode onwards for raiding, which isn't a bad thing as it can play in a form of character progression, this puts a good additional middle ground that uses relevant content, at least its not locked to mythic.

    For a long while, a lot of mmos which also includes WoW have diluted incentives for non organised groups to enter more progressive content other then entering the bare minimum which is LFR, I do applaud Blizz for providing something that people actually like to grind out pour into at least normal mode raiding.

    tbh this would be easily solved instantly if they just made the base Valorous skin - from world bosses and the recolor - from Balance of Power

    Yes we know your guild finished it in 1 hour. Now can you stop repeating that? We are not talking about a good guild. We are talking about pugs. 80% of the time everyon ragequits after the 5th wipe on Nythendra. The other 20% is great. So 1 out of 5 weeks you will be able to do it. The other month, you're out of luck.

    Why do raiders care if others get it, its just an apperance!!!

    Meanwhile, you're crying about raiders getting a special apperance, just like PvP:ers do.


    Seriously, join a group through LFG or create your own. Yes, theres certain groups that got weird requirements, but guess what, theres group that just invites based off of your ilvl

    There are four skins on that row, one requires doing dungeons (something all PVE players do), one requires killing world bosses (something most PVE players do), one requires mythic dungeons (something a lot of PVE players do) and the last requires doing non-LFR raiding (something ~18% of PVE players do).

    The non-LFR raiding one is the base skin for that row meaning it must be unlocked in order to unlock any of the others.

    Do you see the problem now?

    As they should. Increased difficulty=increased reward (especially when talking about organized vs queable), that should be common sense. Adding a skin to incentivize those doing N and H over LFR is hardly ruining your game experience.

    Honestly, the fact they require a normal or higher raid for a skin, doesn't bother me. The fact Mythic Dungeons are required for a skin is more bothersome, because I have no desire to do a Mythic Dungeon, but I want the skin that is locked behind it.

    Now if a pug cannot be completed in 3 hours (That includes either setting one up or joining one). I can sure do 1 wing of LFR in those 3 hours.
    And for that reason things like this should drop in LFR as well.
    Depends how good the group is, In all honesty, You can clear EN Normal in 3 hours with ease.

    • For some reason the hardest PVE skin to obtain is the "base" skin for the 3rd skin tree.
    • This means that in order to obtain the skin for killing some world bosses or the two skins for doing some dungeons, the player must first obtain the skin for raiding which isn't available through LFR.
    • This puts that entire row of skins out of reach for the majority of players (<20% of players raid normal).

    Obviously this issue doesn't affect me however unlike some raiders I don't see the point in taking satisfaction in this injustice, it's wrong, just because it doesn't hurt me doesn't stop it being wrong, the player base should stand together when Blizzard do stupid shit like this not laugh at the ones being victimised.
    This is where you are wrong, the hardest PvE skins to obtain are the third and fourth color for the 3rd skin. Finishing a Mythic+15 Key and Glory of the Legion Hero are much harder than doing EN in Normal Mode.

    This Row is the "organized" PvE Row.
