Agreed but...the reality is that the Troll dungeons are FAR tougher than Occulus. Occulus demanded a different mechanic for the final fight, but the reality was that an experienced group could knock out an Occulus in >15 minutes. The goody bag was enough incentive that at least some groups would put up with it.On top of that, players hadn't been essentially forced to run just Occulus for months on end. Even if they massively nerf the troll dungeons, I frankly never want to see the inside of them again.The incentive to get groups to stick with the troll dungeons will have to be massive. And most players will still probably drop. This whole issue is just one more example of how ham-fisted Blizzard has been with tuning this entire expansion. I am frankly amazed at how much tinkering they have done with a system that was essentially working well.Were Wrath heroics faceroll by the end? Yes. And that was a GOOD thing. The reality is that for most regular players, after the first few times running them, the novelty is off, and running heroics is largely like doing dailies: part of the grind. The dungeon finder firmly cemented this mentality, for better or worse. And when running the heroic is something you feel like you need to do, rather than want to do, it's better to just make it faceroll so that players can at least get a kick out of pushing big numbers, tanking 20 mobs at once, etc.
