Apr 27th 2010 4:58PM People are forgetting a couple of things that are also coming with Cat, Guild advancement system which we have not see ANYTHING about except that it's coming. The rewards for 25 man bosses might be better for guild advancement, we don't know. Lets keep a big picture perspective here
Also I notice people complaining are not mentioning that there WILL be another tier of gear it's called Hard modes, so now when you see a player in TOP gear you know they are a good player cause they are able to A. Clear the zone to open the Hard mode and B. Kill the hard mode level of the boss. You won't have to worry that the guy in 25 man gear was the ONE guy that got carried in a 25 man guild (but we all know it is easier to carry people in 25 man than in 10. 20 good players can carry 5 OK players in 25 man content in 10 man maybe 1 or 2 tops and I suspect for hard modes that number will be 0)
As it currently stands a minuscule percentage of the player base has the top gear in the game I277 from ICC 25 hard mode because like many posters have mentioned getting 25 players together is hard getting 25 GOOD players to work perfectly together requires IMHO more work than should be dedicated to a game.
I bet the players with the 25 man hard- mode achievements are going to get the cool vanity items and pets, but since 10 man hard and 25 man hard are the same gear level groups of players who are all in hard mode gear that they got either through 10 man hard or 25 man hard will get together for the "cool" epeen" toys so they can show they are the best players.
Jan 13th 2010 11:26AM WOW actually did this with Wrath quest drops. I am going to try and find the article where one of the developers talked about it. The concept is that as you kill the same creature for a specific drop, for a quest the percentage chance increases the more of then you kill till you are getting one from every kill. What I don't understand is why they did not make that change retrospectively to older quests.
