Winterhawk hit on a VERY good point here that I think is being over looked by most, and completely ignored by the original article.While doing ZG/ZA are without a doubt on 'farm' status for many, they are still a nightmare to PUG. As was mentioned in the article, after dinging 85, gaining the ilevel for Troll heroics is incredibly simple. Problem is, that gaining that ilevel doesn't mean that the player has the "real" gear they need for their spec. We call it 'cheating the system' in our house. Where you see players with 318 pieces on in Troll heroics, because they have a 346 of the same type, but wrong spec, in their bag somewhere.So the result is that people rush to the Troll heroics as fast as possible, whether their ready or not (I've seen people who in there who don't even know what the 'skull' mark is for). And as has been discussed before, the Troll heroics brought the raid mentality to 5 mans for the first time. Meaning that one person, even a dps, making a small mistake(like killing both hatchers), could whipe the whole group.So put together, constant ZA/ZG point runs, with the demand that everyone do EVERYTHING right or whipe, with the frustation of PUGing with people who really aren't ready to be there, and at this point I think EVERYONE is sick of the Troll heroics.I say add the 4 lvl 85 dungeons to the higher point payout level, and give these players a chance to earn good points, while getting ready for the Troll heroics.
