I am sick to death of the Zandalari dungeons. Even when running them with a geared guild group they're just too long--aside from the stupid cap that means I can't just run normal heroics until my eyes bleed to get to the weekly cap on my non-raiding alts, for the most part it takes less than half the time to run a normal heroic (especially ones with optional bosses) than it does to run a troll. And (fill in favorite deity here) forbid you try to pug the Zandalaris! My pugs (which I always run with at least one other friend) are hit or miss--sometimes we get a really good group and just blast through, but wiping over and over because your pug lock can't manage 5K DPS on the last boss of ZG is just demoralizing. Aside from that, they're just *boring*. I mean, yeah, they were cool when they were new, and I kind of got my fill of ZA back when it was a raid. But being forced to alternate between ZG and ZA to cap points is...ugh. I've gotten to where I don't even bother running them anymore--I just take longer to get upgrades for my non-raiding alts because I just can't stand the thought of looking at those two dungeons anymore.

I was sick of them fast. I ran ZA quite a bit the first time around, plus farming Zandalar rep and mounts before the 60 version disappear, so the locales became engrained in my mind.While the revamped versions are very well done, they still look the same. On the other hand, most of the other dungeons are extremely well done artistically speaking, and I haven't tired of looking at them. But WoW is a very reward-oriented game, so of course I've skipped over the lower tier as the time spent vs. reward is much lower than doing the Zul'Agains.

I still run "old" heroics fine, queue times are less and it's faster and generally easier. You still get people new to them occasionally, but no biggie. There's also of course a wider variety of gear to help out. For those farming VP, I'd say even just removing the stupid weekly cap would help. You could easily run twice as many old heroics as troll heroics for a more enjoyable time usually...Oh well.
