'Ulterior motive' implies that Blizzard is hiding the motive; they are not. They may not be exactly trumpeting it from the rooftops, but hiding it? No. They've made no bones about the fact that they expect raids to last more than one kill of the end boss, and that they expect people will aim for their best-in-slot sets.Do they intentionally slow players down to keep them running the content longer? Heck yeah, and they've mentioned that a time or three, too; this particular need was on open display back in Wrath, both when discussing how expensive the ICC emblem gear was to buy and a year later when talking about the weekly VP caps (and particularly how those caps allowed them to both slow players down and give them more options to keep up with the fastest allowed pace.)
