As a practicing altaholic, I must voice my opinion about the low level raid finder idea. DO IT!! It would be a way for people like me, people who never raided before wrath dropped, to experience the content we so desperately want to see.Picture this: You're leveling your monk a year from now. As you ding 80 in Icecrown, your mind turns toward Hyjal. BUT then you realize that you never killed the LK. As urgent as the battle against Deathwing is, someone needs to stop Arthas! That's when it hits you. You need to farm some Justice and buy some t10. Once you hit the ilvl requirement, it's off into the first section of ICC. As you clear each section, the next opens up. Finally, after weeks sitting at level 80, you set out to kill the Arthas. As you want upon is wasted corpse, you turn you attention to Hyjal where The Kingslayer is desperately needed in the fight against The Destoryer.(of course, blizz would need to ban cata lvl gear from the ICC raid finder. Thats like trading Steelix to someone with red version.)As far as I am aware, there are only 3 ways that this old raid content could be experienced without resorting to using max level toons. Of the 3, only 1 is in game, and that method is remarkable difficult: guilds for non-max level raiding. The other 2 methods would be the raid finder and Vanilla/BC/WRATH/CATA/future expansion servers.Blizzard has stated many times that they don't want to create time machine servers and that players wouldn't use them anyway. Quite frankly, I agree 100%. No one would want to spend all that time leveling up a new toon and even if they did it would be boring and people would leave the servers. And even if that wasn't a good enough reason, I also agree with blizzard's position that WoW is meant to evolve and change; creating a time machine server would be counter to the very nature of an MMORPG.So the best solution that would make the customers happy and comply with Blizzard's position is raid finder for low levels. Granted, a fair amount of tuning would need to be done. The question of whether a raid finder version should be created for each fight would arise. I think it could be a good idea. It would preserve the value of having killed Arthas for those who did it before, and yet give a chance to everyone who didn't have the pleasure. (and just think about the new colors of raid finder t10 for mogging!)
