Mar 22nd 2012 3:09PM LFR is in itself a way fro "casuals" to raid, so you can't really say raiders vs. casuals anymore, you have to be specific.
I see the addition of Scenarios and Challenge modes as extra ways for people who don't like to waste several nights a week wiping to a specific boss encounter to learn it a way to "progress" or just have fun on their own or with a group of friends.
You also didn't mention Pet Battles, which seems like the ultimate casual time sink.
Jan 27th 2012 10:26AM I like the XT hard mode best I think. Doing extra DPS burst leading to a longer fight overall with extra mechanics for everyone and an actual stretch on healer mana.
Oct 6th 2011 11:50AM They don't need to make the Shoulder Enchants BoA like they did for the Wrath expansion because Therazane has a tabard and Sons of Hodir didn't. They expect you to be able to work at least one of the factions up during your time running 5-mans if you don't feel like doing the daily quest grind.
Aug 22nd 2011 1:25PM For fresh alts or new players, the ZA/ZG tier *IS* harder than the others. Yes, most of the actual items from there can be replaced with higher iLvl gear from VP or crafting without having to raid, with the exception of the head/shoulders and possibly a few other niche items. Requiring the higher gear level for them isn't a waste.
I would agree that the rewards for the previous launch instances could be boosted now that the benefits of ZA/ZG are less than they had been.
Feb 22nd 2011 4:24PM I'm guessing they will find a way to implement Spirit Link for the shaman cooldown. They've taken a crack at it in the past but it didn't work the way they wanted so they canned it. Since there's something there that they can build on, that's where I'd guess they would go.
Jan 5th 2011 4:33PM Buy the PvP wand for cheap and replace it when you get a PvE wand? Those 346 relics aren't cheap, so a relic for a low amount of honor was an easy way to an iLvl 352 relic that is almost as good statwise.
