Didn't say I had a problem with it, but I'm not surprised it was easy to read that into my comment. :) I just think it's...odd. Particularly when Blizzard JUST got done adjusting drop rates to slow down the legendary acquisition, it's weird that they'd suddenly double the rate. (Or is that halve the rate? Oh well.) One possibility is that the US and Europe won't get the double-lockout until 4.3 hits, so Firelands won't be the rage any more. I don't know how far "behind" China and Taiwan are, but this will help bring them up to speed...if that's needed at all.I too am annoyed by the Legendary rate for non-elite raiders. My guild's caster will be getting stage 2 in two weeks. We won't even complete one before Dragon Soul comes out. We've been killing Rags for weeks now and we're even 3/7 Heroic modes. Then again, a chunk of that slowdown is because we're a 10-man guild. I don't have a problem with Legendary weapons being rare, but this is fairly ridiculous.The most interesting part of the Dragonwrath chain is the Foci "Delegation" stage and the solo-instance run before that. Our raiders asked last night "after you get stage 2, what's next?" And my answer was "oh, we just kill more bosses and collect a third drop from them." There response was (naturally) "well that's lame." So I agree Pyro, I'd love to see more "do this boss different" like the Shadowmourne chain. I also really loved the addition of a solo hard boss kill as part of the chain. I absolutely adore the idea that getting a legendary actually tests the skills of the individual raider and not just "how long does it take to collect X?"Zul'Gurub actually reset every 3 days, but wasn't on a set timer. If it reset this week on Tuesday and Friday, then next week it would reset on Monday and Thursday, eventually cycling back around to Tuesday/Friday. I never did see either of the mounts drop while the raid was current. I finally got the Raptor a few weeks before it was removed. Never saw the Tiger. :/
