Hank, you've never had Oculus on random? Seedcake, you can understand people dropping on it? Two days ago I was spamming randoms for badges. I got Oculus not once, not twice, not thrice, but four times. Three of them in a row. I got Old Kingdom twice and HoL twice. I got FoS once and ToC once, after an entire group stuck around after one of the HoS runs. It's painful to get into Oculus and see the entire group drop instantly. Fortunately for me, being left alone seems to remove the 15 minute debuff. I didn't mind having to do Oculus the three times because each time I did it, people got the Under-20-minutes-achievement-thing, and I just happen to love Oculus, especially when people let me red-drake it up (hey, how often does a mage get to tank?). If people can learn it, it's really a breeze now, and the vehicle mechanics *can* be fun. With the nerfs and all, I highly recommend sticking around for what I find can be one of the quickest Northrend Heroics, so long as:1) Your red-drake-rider knows what they're doing.2) At least one of your yellow-drake riders knows what they're doing. Heck, I've even gotten the Amber Void Achievement with the LFD tool, and Emerald Void. It was fun and not once have I ever had a single wipe in that dungeon. People are just bitter and prejudiced about it these days.That said, I suck at Amber drakes and refuse to take them. Ever.
