@DarkseidThere's a small subset of raiders, essentially just the guilds on the front page of wowprogress, for whom there are no guides written, because they are the ones who write the guides. This is blizz not only taking away the need for them to write guides, which they enjoy, but it also takes away the opportunity for them to see these encounters without such assistance. And before you say "They don't HAVE to use the DJ!" Yes, they do. Upper echelon raiding is a bloodthirsty, machiavelian realm that most people who frequent this site have no clue of the specifics of. Exodus and Ensidia exploited bosses for world firsts. Premonition poached members from other guilds to unlock ICC heroic the first week. Stars runs a roster of over 100 raiders to pick and choose from. Premonition stacks any alts they can find, be it 11 feral druids, or a half dozen holy pallys, or swapping out their main tank for a DK in blues if it make the fight easier. When they're in progression mode, anything that can give them an edge in the race will be used. Because if they don't, the guild behind them will.@EldoronYou doubt that it's high end guilds like paragon complaining?Here's an EU thread complaining about the DJ. http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/2098122483Let's look at the first ten posts of people complaining.1: Paragon World #12: Inner Sanctum World #243: For the Horde World #44: Apex World #175: Storm Legion Unranked6: Paragon World #17: Paragon World #18: Flying Shrimp World #30359: Ensidia World #310: Paragon World #1Multiple members of Paragon complaining, along with many other top tier guilds.Here's the North American thread.http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/2548994977Pretty much the whole threat is various members of Premonition, the world #7, US#2 guild, including Xav, their GM, complaining about the DJ.We're not talking about random trolls trying to keep the casuals down. These are respected raiders from the best guilds in the world voicing their concerns about how this change will affect their gameplay. Their concerns are legitimate, even if they don't affect you.
