I'm a raid-geared tank in a casual raiding guild. We clear 4/7 bosses currently, so have a few VP to clear up afterward. I grind those off in trolls because it just takes 3 of them vs more heroics.However, I have on occasion done heroics just to have a change of pace. I find the quality of players in heroics to be, quite frankly, terrible, but because I so far outgear the instances, they are still tolerable. I can skip some of the bosses and have some quick runs.I can also have some painful ones when the DPS pull additional groups or simply can't play (2k DPS on a DK? Seriously?). In the end, I generally get frustrated from enabling terrible players, and head back to trolls.I seldom wipe in "zandoms" - this is perhaps due to a higher quality of player running them, or perhaps it is because I explain what I want people to do on Jin - but they are SO grindy these days it's not funny. I am starved for variety.Whenever we kill a new boss in FL, someone in the raid always says "Yay, one less troll instance I have to do". There is something wrong when the enjoyment of killing a boss for the first time is partly derived from lessening the post-raid VP grind.
