Can we do the same to culling of strat? ...and random the Frozen Orb already!

The only thing CoS needs is an option to skip the lore. The instance itself is just fine.

Really nice. One of my favorite instances and better loot now? Gimme gimme!It was my first random normal instance in the new LFG tool as a freshly dinged 80, and it was fun for me. I don't really care explaining people what to do, and I like the abilities of all the drakes (personal preference green>red>amber). Having not found utter morons who don't know back from front I have only wiped twice in all the times I have run it (it was in the same run, one of them due to a dragon attacking us while we were on foot).I love it.

I'd rather it be a 100% for getting the make it count achievement.

Please remember that the extra loot comes ONLY if you queue up for a RANDOM HEROIC and happen to get Oculus. You can't just queue for heroic Oculus and get the extra gems, badges, etc. I see quite a few posts both here and on the general forums where I don't think people understand this.

well, if it's the case that you only get the extra loot from getting it on random, then no mount for me most likely. i have not once gotten occulus on any of my toons while using the random dungeon finder, even though i'm usually running 10-15 randoms per day. :(

/facepalm.....oculus, rather than occulus

Nice doesn't even begin to describe this.This is HUGE.

For people (like me) who already didn't particularly mind this instance, this is definitely a nice change.I wish that they'd done some tuning of the trash packs instead, or added clear directions to help people find their way up the instance. But this'll work.

When people already get the drake, it should change to drop a single frost emblem to keep people interested.

It's kind of appalling how many players shy away from anything that might actually be challenging right now. As much as I appreciate how Blizzard has made raids more accessible (as someone who got only as far as 4/6 ZA and 2/4 TK in BC), there's just this attitude of "if I don't get immediate gratification, it isn't worth it." Think about it - is Oculus really that difficult in T9+ gear, which is obtainable by everyone, compared to H Magister's Terrace in Kara gear, or even in Sunwell Badge gear? Or rather, are we all so spoiled by ilvl 200 heroics being a /faceroll that we are simply unwilling to deal with it?Anyhow, I got Oc last night, and the only reason we didn't get "Make It Count" is because the healer disconnected right after the Mage. But hey, I'm as guilty as anyone - when we killed Eregos, it was only the second time I've bothered to do it, in the entire year Wrath has been out.

It would appear this only works if your have a pug in the group, we did a guild run random dungeon got oculus, completed it and got no extra goodies. :(
