VP stuff that not everyone can reach as of yet. With the cheaper pieces still requiring two weeks of caps to obtain just one.
you can get 489 vp gear without doing ANY dailies, in the case of Klaxxi, and only a few dailies in the other case. With the nerfs to reps, you get VP faster than you can spend it.
Assuming you can get gear from Sha, which is more RNG. Or on an overpopulated server any Sha kills turn into a complete mess of 100+ people all trying to flag and kill each other.
RNG in your brain decides if you can right click the corpse or not, I guess? It's a quest item that everyone gets.
Crafted gear that is either expensive and or tedious to make. Some professions have that easy, others such as Blacksmithing got completely effed over right now. Or for those such as myself that go double gathering to help supply my guild, and play the AH game.
MMOs and tedium, go hand in hand, expensive? well, that's the cost of getting into raid finder week 1 of availability I guess? Sometimes, you should have to put in more effort than pushing a "que and afk" button.
PvP gear? Why are you even suggesting that. I'll wait the week before you're complaining about these scrubs in pvp in 'your' raids. Seriously let that sink in.
PvP gear is equivalent to pve gear this expansion. Many BIS items for me are PVP items because of the budgetting and fact they're gem slotted.
You're ducking the problem by giving cop out answers. The requirements are being adjusted toward 460 because they're too tedious as of right now. Other gear is available, yes. But not -every- player plays like -you- do. Blizzard has to make it accessible enough that people can put in some effort and be rewarded, without having to go the extreme end of this tedious and unnecessarily RNG dependent grind.
Not every player plays like me, heres 12 alternatives "Those are all too hard, I'd prefer to afk"
There's Accessible, and then there's "Hit 90, do LFR, log off til next week"
Every expansion this term accessibility gets broader, and broader, It's to the point now, that requiring a full set of BLUES is "Inaccessible".... I shudder to think when having 2 trinkets is considered inaccessible when Emerald Dream hits.
I'm not saying it's impossible, rabble rabble rabble. But it's being adjusted so that it's more accessible. But making it unnecessarily tedious to even so much as get in is not the best design for LFR.
I guess it's bad design to push any form of character progression, in liu of having a game where the goal is to just do enough to get into the welfare office.
