Dec 2nd 2009 10:45AM I've run some raids and some dungeons blind in that I didn't know what was going on (even a few times with me tanking) and it isn't described to me. For dungeons I find it usually not that challenging, but it is pretty fun and rewarding.
The problem is that you have to be with characters who know their class very well and are very adaptable, and because of the strategies most raids have laid out, a lot of people don't reach that level. Mediocre or even bad players can still get through hardmodes, carried by better guilds or simply by learning a basic strategy and rinse/repeat.
The other problem is that even though I would love to do raids blind, I don't think I could find enough people willing to join me.

Nov 2nd 2009 2:24PM You clearly do not understand probability (or have a complete misunderstanding of the situation). Assume we have four players who roll on a piece of gear, A, B, C, and D. In reality, however, players A, B, and C are all rolling for player B. D has a 25% chance of winning the loot. If, however, players A and C follow the loot rules and do not roll because they do not need the gear, D has a 50% chance of winning the loot.
Nov 2nd 2009 1:54PM I agree. If the raid feels that it is acceptable behavior, that is absolutely fine. But doing it while leaving them in the dark is stealing loot from people that need it.
Oct 28th 2009 2:25PM From level 1-60 its simply not worth it. There aren't enough stats on most of the gear (until around 50 really) to justify taking it. Once you hit 60 there is tons of gear with spell power and it becomes a much more important stat, but most of the time you aren't sacrificing stam/int.
Same would hold true (I assume..) for non-casters.
Oct 28th 2009 2:05PM It doesn't really affect you, though. You're arguing that other people can roll on disenchanted items but you're assuming that if you don't offer to disenchant for everyone that they'll just pass and let you have it. You have the same chance of getting mats as you would before this system.
Oct 27th 2009 4:24PM I don't see why it would be that big of an issue. Leveling as a DK in any tank spec/gear is still pretty easy, although it might be a bit slower than a DPS spec/gear setup. Also leveling a Disc priest isn't too challenging, even if shadow is easier.
Oct 27th 2009 4:18PM Really this just makes me wish there was at least one pure tank and one pure healer in the game.
Oct 19th 2009 2:26PM There's a quest in game called 'Better Living Through Chemistry' which is the name of a song on Adema's latest album Planets. However, most people I know have never heard of Adema let alone that particular song.
