@Whyisretgimped QUOTE "Running heroics in LK was less challenging and more mindless, but it was also faster"First off, what is with this 'faster' everything? Sit down and enjoy the time you spend in front of the game, whether you play for 5 minutes or 5 hours. How fast you're moving through content should mean nothing to you unless you suffer from severe ADHD, which I'm starting to suspect the majority of players do.Those high-speed chain-pulling LOLAOE dungeons were also incredibly boring. You ran behind the tank looting everything that sparkled and spamming 1 or 2 spells with no further thought. How is this fun for anyone with more than a single digit IQ?QUOTE "Honestly, it was more fun to try and push an LK heroic faster than I should and risk dying on every pull than it is marking targets, dealing with incompetent DPC cc and wiping because a boss has insane mechanics that often rely on luck. "You can STILL risk dying. You will always have incompetent DPS and CC is currently not required on every pull, just a little bit of basic thought. If we nerf the game down to the level that all the 'incompetent DPS' can get through everything we'll have another 'roll face on keyboard' expansion for anyone else who can figure out the basic idea "behind don't stand in the fire." Rather spend a few minutes teaching that newb hunter in your pug how to trap than bemoaning how hard the instance is.Besides, I quite honestly detested those morons who insisted chain pulling their way through everything in Wrath in a huge hurry. Seriously? Why? Where exactly do you need to get to so fast?Quote: "As an aside, it was also nice to be able to run heroics with my not-so-awesome gamesauce wife and watch her enjoy getting a mega geared toon that could destroy any wobbly that tried to mug her while she gathered herbs."Your not-so-awesome gamesauce wife has plenty for her in cata. You can get really decent gear without ever running a heroic. Gear that will at least let you decimate any open world mob.In fact that's my problem right now. I have a few pieces of high level gear and dailies are quite frankly mindlessly boring. I hit one or two skills and the mob is dead. Next. How is this fun? It's just basically repetition with no challenge.Spend some time educating your not-so-awesome gamesauce wife so she can play the game with a little skill. She'll thank you for it.Gods, I still can't believe there are so many people with this mindset that posts like this are getting upvoted. Do you guys seriously all just want something that spews out virtual loot with no challenge? Rewards just for pitching up? Isn't there something inside you guys that gets a kick out of overcoming a challenge as part of a team? Just what the hell happened to people...
