The WoW Insider Show Episode 234: In which Alex guests {WoW}

Feb 28th 2012 6:17PM I can understand not being able to use another guild's perks, but if I'm helping a different guild raid, I should be able to use their money for my repairs. I have access to their feasts and cauldrons which are from guild rewards. Why not their repairs?

Feb 28th 2012 5:30PM I was thinking the "old style of dungeon finder" meant the Burning Crusade style where there was an actual window that you would open up in-game. You'd select your role, put notes for yourself, etc. A little similar to the Dungeon Finder we have today.

Here are a couple of photos that I scrounged from the web:

I liked this style of Dungeon Finder because it promotes community on the server. You could build a server-wide reputation that way (with your faction at least). The only way to find people on your server to group with now is by spamming Trade Chat (because no one uses LookingForGroup Chat).

Also, Blizzard needs to incorporate some kind of temporary guild perks for people who are picked up to fill in for raids and rbgs. For instance, if I were to help a different guild raid Dragon Soul, I should have access to their guild repairs, guild perks (if they're a higher-level guild), etc...if they choose to let me.

Dec 28th 2011 3:47PM I don't think Blizzard effectively captured the "epic" feeling of defeating Deathwing. In fact, I don't feel like we actually fought Deathwing proper, just bits and pieces of him. We fight amalgamations and tentacles but never Deathwing himself. Yes, his head does slump down for us to beat on, but come on.

Deathwing can one-shot anyone in Uldum when he randomly flies over and spews forth his fire, and he can destroy whole sections of Stormwind and Orgrimmar, but he doesn't directly attack us at all during his raid encounter aside from shooting an elementium bolt.

Then we have Thrall who stands around and *usually* gives us the ability to float from platform to platform (usually because he seems to sometimes drop raid members to their deaths). In Hour of Twilight he gives us a nice damage buff but during The Encounter all he can do is float us around.
