Thanks for the info! ^-^
I'm excited to see this raid! I feel like this one will have more of a "Warlord" feel to it than Highmaul. Taking down the Iron Horde's weapon and armor foundry will feel very rewarding.
Wow. The last part of LFR is over a month away from the first part?

Crazy attempt to slow down content consumption.
Any chance we could get an increase to the ilvl of world boss loot to actually make them worth doing?
Yay for the 2 month LFR release cycle. Can you please narrow that down to something less painful? I can understand a month... But 2? That's a little... Extended. Nothing like forcing someone to do something else because you refuse to release stuff for people.

Its not my fault you made LFR stupid easy. Increase its difficulty. Make it what it used to be, Stop this "Tourism mode" crap people still hound people with. Give LFR back the Teir gear that it's always had.

But nah. Nevermind. Lets just continue with the "If your not within a raid guild you don't deserve to raid" mentality.
I actually like the lengthened schedule more. Gives guilds that haven't completely progressed through highmaul a chance to catch up. It also means that at the end of this expansion we likely won't have to wait 2 years for new content.

The only content being lengthened now, is LFR. On day 1, Both Normal and Heroic are opened up fully. All bosses. You could theoretically down Blackhand on the 3rd of February.

1 week later, Mythic fully releases.

Then, After a whole 1 month, and 3 weeks from day 1. FINALLY, finally, LFR will be able to down Blackhand.

*insert picture of national geographic aliens dude* "Content"
agree lfr need Increase its difficulty and bring back tier.
current model for it to easy and loot drops lacking or not drop at all with one boss only drop one thing for spec!
And as for fixing Ashran? can we get a schedule on that? You know the other thing that you all hyped up WoD for but sadly ignore?

You don't get to have engagingly difficult content without at least a small commitment of time and performance. If you think LFR is boring then try normal mode. You don't need a guild.

The comment was based on how LFR used to be. LFR used to be more difficult, and take more time. This expansion just made it exactly what everyone used to call it. "Tourism Mode". Everything is scripted to be easier.

LFR used to be exactly normal, with a little health reduction and damage reduction. Same mechanics, Same everything. Just a little easier than normal. Now, Its a walk in the park compared to Normal.
Garbage that they are making people wait over a month for the last LFR wing. Gotta make sure to gate those LFRs so people dont progress through them to quickly /sarcasm...
