"We don't want to shut anyone out. So, we're addressing that with Challenge Modes in Mists. You'll have normal and heroic mode dungeons, and then Challenge Modes, for players who are looking to prove their mettle."Yeah.. no. As far as I understand it Challenge Mode is going to be a timed run where everybody gets the same gear. That might certainly be interesting for some people, but to imply that it somehow represents a straight up third difficulty setting for heroics is bullshit. It's a completely different ballgame.I enjoy challenging heroics. I also enjoy long dungeons. What I don't enjoy is the "gogogo" mentality in PUGs, so no, I don't want to "prove my mettle" by racing through dungeons against a clock, I simply want to overcome challenging encounters in 5-man content. But GC's quote pretty much sounds like they are going to make dull VP-mazes like the HoT heroics from now on and if you want a challenge you can do this timerun stuff. Thanks, but no thanks.
