Whoever thought of this idea wasted Blizzard's money and resources. Opting out of the zone-wide buff is like opting out of gear upgrades. No one in their right mind would want to opt out of it. And even if they opt out for e-peen boosting purposes, it's not something that you can track at the moment anyway. What a stupid idea to make it an "optional" buff.

Not really, since being able to opt out of it gets rid of most of the QQ that always comes with such nerfs.

It's "optional" status probably took as long to add as it took you to make that post. Also, as far as ePeen goes...I think it's actually refreshing that people have an option for doing something "the hard way" that isn't tracked. For once, the difficulty level of the game is a simple matter of preference and *not* a matter of bragging rights.In other words:*makes dismissive wank motion with hand at your post*

Stupid idea is stupid. New content is being thrown at us far too quickly and since we have to finish it fast before the next best raid goes live lets just make everything easy as pie! I'd say normal vs hardmodes was enough tbh.

Does this make ICC too easy for you? Go do hard modes, where this buff IS NOT AVAILABLE.Good luck! =D

I would be amazed if anyone turned this off. Now, if they add achievements for completing goals in ICC without the buff -- other than the heroic modes, of course -- then it might get used. Until then, people will claim they've turned it off a lot more than they actually will.In fact, I look forward to the first person to get busted for claiming his raid cleared ICC without the buff and then having their own logs getting thrown in their face, showing otherwise.
