    And glad it's gone, don't need any more green geared pug leaders that require +20 ilvl than the raid drops to boost themselves in normal. If the gear is the only incentive, then you won't have a bunch of overgeared leggo farmers taking all the spots and every run expecting that as a standard.

    P.S. Mythic0 (non keystone) dungeons drop 370 too, and hc dungeons drop 355. Forgot about that.
    What he said. Have had many other sources of 385 gear since then, and no legos. And the Azerite pieces won't warforge either

    Only thing normal is any good for is az farming for either super perfect traits or dust from scraping it. Sure, you might get some insane titanforged item but to much RNG. Just targeting a specific m+ and doing it between 8 to 10 is a lot more efficient to cherry pick specific slots.

    Just play a warrior and get your friend to be your pocket healer. Enjoy the massacre. Fuck Solo pvp. Wow is a team game.

    " hey guys, there were nothing but Heroic BoD pug raids in group finder this morning on Darkspear, but no Normal groups? What gives ?"

    or anything similar to that ^^


    this is such a weird topic to "discuss"

    What’s your ilvl and what time did you que? I’m on Stormrage as well and whenever I go pug a random boss from heroic I missed during alt raid I find tons of groups.

    If your ilvl is low (370-380) you probably won’t see the majority of groups. Most of them list with an item level requirement which is usually 390-400 even for normal.

    It also depends on the times. Activity has always dropped around 1-2 am on Stormrage, it’s an EST server so keep that in mind.

    let me guess

    you are around 370-380 and wanted to gear up in normal

    well here was you mistake - if you would have itlv that people want for normal raiding aka 400 itlv + you would see dozens of groups

    your mistake was wanting to raid without overgearing content by at least 30 itlv

    you should know better.

    If you are on EU realms make sure to hit the checkboxes for displaying german/french/spanish/italian/russian server listings. They make up the majority of the european playerbase after all. And most are searching international anyway.

    Nobody bothers with normal because you outgear it from M+. Was the same in Uldir.

    ^^ Pretty much this. I feel like normal has lost it's place.

    you're going to see less and less groups doing normal because there is zero reason to run lower difficulties once you out gear them. unlike legion where people routinely farmed normal and heroic for ap and leggos.

    Good. I hated having to slog through boring and easy content just for a chance at legendaries. (which would more often than not be garbage and go straight into the bank, good game design)

    Good, maybe we'll see less stupid requirement pugs where must have +20 ilvl than what drops on normal to queue for normal, because those groups will never fill when these +20 ilvl players have no business in lower difficulty mode and should be instead in heroic at least.

    The only issue that hurts viability of normal isn't that you have no reason to run it when you're 400+ ilvl, it's that you probably won't bother when you're 370-380 either because you can easily get no effort welfare gear like emissary rewards of the same quality as normal raid loot.

    I pugged a lot in legion. It's not wroth the hassle with all the other catch up gear this expansion.

    Never forget that Trump supporters feel "fiery partisan passion" when an accused rapist is being forced onto the Supreme court. Deplorable to the end.
