3-4 months of nerfed firelands is a bad idea,.. i really think no1 has a problem with nerfed regular content, and if they do thats fine, at the least, less people would be upset then as many that are now.
nerfed heroic content, why?
heroics should be optional,.. we are going to be more easily out gearing next tier now. i just dont get it.
Why was the slow incrimental nerfing of ICC buff abandoned, that was fun and felt better then taking 25% chucks of bosses HP,.. and made you feel awesome as the buff got bigger over time
i was at %3 on reg rags prenerfed, just needed a lil buff to get the kill, or just better execution of the people handling just 2 meteors we had floating around at the end. after nerf, one metoer, that luckly picked one of our good kiters and besides that, just everything was hugly simpler,.. the kill felt unsatisfing.
the point is, if it was ICC stylle and we just had a 5% incremental buff to our dmg, hp, and healing,.. we still probly would have had the 2 meteors and the fight wouldnt have been the drastic change we got..
and as much as im QQing about the reg rags kill, the bigger issue i think is heroic nerfs, that i dont get,.. rags is over tuned and probly should get hit to tone him down a bit closer to the rest of the fights. but besides him the heroics should be optonal and nerfed through the natural progression of gear upgrades,.. even going into next tier..
i remember a blue post making the point of how content gets nerfed by it self just by players outgearing it even going into a next teir.
gawd , its so weird to be casual and it makes sence to try and go ahead and get fully heroic geared before the next tier to come out,.. over gearing us for the new content thats coming. not to mention how much more fun the new 5 mans would have been not only to see the rp lore story in them but to have actual meaningful upgrades in them. they supposivly drop gear in between reg firelands and heroic,.. but if most will be in full heroic gear going into 4.3 .. less reason to get excited over the 5 mans besides clearing it the first few times just to see the cool story bro of it. there may may a cool trinket or something interesing that may make it a reason to farm even if its lower ilvl then heroic firelands..
the easy mode lfr will be replacing our heroic firelands gear anyway,.. and i think that is fine,. but i can see the 3 new 5 mans not being done much if that lfr is all its cracked up to be and feels like a huge BH raid of tier gear.
i know people find it hard to belive that bliz wont rush out a product to compete with the dec 20 swtor date,.. but for the sake of argument just as a mental exsersise lets just say bliz is comfortable in waiting till 4.3 is sufficiently tested and not releasing 4.3 till jan..
again i cant strees enough i know there are many diffrent camps and people with diffrent opinions and reasons to back there opinions on a sooner date or whatever,.. feel free to start a post on those assumptions somewhere else,.. for the purposes of this post and as a mental exsersise lets get beyound the what if it comes out at a certain date and talk about if it is coming out on jan, what are the implications of that
First of all i agree with you to a point... For guilds like ours who were half way through heroic content the nerf was too much.. We went and cleared the place on heroic with the exception of Ragnaros in 2 days.. The third day we messed around.. The only thing left for us is Heroic Ragnaros.... However that will be at least 1 month worth of work.. I am guessing the same amount of time Heroic Nef took..
Now the flip side of this is one of the things that made Firelands so difficult for most guilds.. Heroic Tier 11 was very difficult and not many people were walking into firelands geared up in full 372's... Us and a few other guilds were and it made normal mode a lot easier seeing that 372 is 6 points gear wise from full Tier 12.. I am guessing its 399 ilvl next tier thats too big a jump from 378 so they want to give people time to get into the 380's..
I think they should have done the 5% incremental nerf... Hell they nerfed Heroic Beth twice in 2 weeks.. When we did it Aura Mastery didnt work and resistance auras didnt work AND the adds had an additional 10% health.. Then they did that nerf and then the big nerf.. We were close on Alysrazor and that fight became a joke.. Baleroc there is no worry about an enrage and Domo all you have to do is survive through the orbs phase 1 time since you kill it easily before the 2nd time..
We are gonna spend our time gearing up alts, selling mount runs and working on Heroic Rag and finishing up the meta from the last tier.. If all that is done and its still not out then we will probably go into hibernation mode or something
The normal mode nerfs are laughable and any 10 average players can clear quite a few of the heroics in a 10 man now. At least they won't totally nerf the next expansion's raids to the ground.
P.S. Hows the pan-flute
