DS GDKP25 - Anyone running these?
For a GDKP run to work, you would need to offer something that isn't easily found in trade, which is heroic bosses, and considering only 2 guilds on this server have cleared 8/8H, and both of which did it in 10man, not 25 yet, there is nothing for a 25man run to offer.
Also, there are currently 2 guilds on Horde that run 25man. No joke! So to organise a group that can clear content on heroic and on 25man would be hardwork.
The difference GDKP brings to the table is generally that you have a very high chance of the item you're looking for dropping in a 25 clear. Certainly, baring a bit of bad luck, a good chance of at least one token for each slot for each class will drop. Whether you get it or not depends on what you're willing to spend. For those wanting to gear up an alt quickly or wanting to obtain a rare weapon/trinket they are pretty far down the queue in their own guild this is a better way than LFR.
You make great points and certainly heroic modes would be an incentive but my limited exposure to these tells me it's not yet viable for GDKP.
I think you'd find it hard to get a strong core of players willing to go each week (mainly your tanks and healers) I don't think the incentive to go is QUITE there anymore (are there people with the gold who are willing to spend? Do people value this gear as much as they did back when GDKP was fruitful?)
Not to be offensive, but the quality in player on this server has dropped severely since WoTLK, with no powerhouse 25m guild and 10m guilds that are only just seeing HM Deathwing, will the gold hungry alts/casuals be capable of doing a smooth and profitable 8/8 clear?
With more nerfs incoming, the possibility of hard modes plus faster clears will eventually happen (you would think) if you can get that strong core of carry players, you should at LEAST see the backs of Morchok and Hagara on heroic.
Really depends on realm interest - whisper me if you're keen and I'll start noting down names.
8/8 Clear (sadly not GDKP, but SNK DBAD loot rules apply)
Xmog theme : "I love this! I found it at a clearance sale! It was 20% off!"
so wear your most fabulously mismatched outfit. (or something you found at a clearance sale!)
With Kind Regards
