Why would you even want to waste your time?

Hope springs eternal. There's still the offchance that you'll end up in a super experience group that's killed all the bosses and just needs an extra player or two to fill their raid. Happens once in a blue moon, but it's generally enough of an incentive for people to give it a shot.

Another *potential* is the very small guild that wants to find a PuG or two to fill up slots.

*shrug* more of a side-benefit, but better to have glasses half-full.
But honestly? I'm am waitng with this huuuuuuuuuuuuge smirk on my face, becaue this is going to be one. HELL. of a wipefest.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Yeah I find this whole thing not helpful for the social side of the game. Most of my FL contacts are from BC still. And Real ID doesn´t replace the "Random meeting, let´s chat for a while thing"

I know it´s a time issue but wel if I go pugging, I need much time.

And well after a while, you know the guys who sign up regularly and build up a core. Itemlevel is only one thing. The bigger pool means more it´s more anonymous.

No, it'll be ToC all over again.

Walk in, listen to Deathwing Guardset A talk for about 10 minutes, then kill them.
Listen to Deathwing Guardset B talk for about 10 minutes, then kill them.
Listen to Deathwing Guardset C talk for about 5 minutes, then kill them.
Special appearance by Alexastraza and Korialstraz, as they try to convince Deathwing to Step Upon the Path of the Titans
Engage Deathwing when he laughs at them, tank and spank allll the way.

... and in phase 3, the floor falls away and the entire raid plummets toward their death, only to land on the backs of a flight of red drakes. Combat with Deathwing, now glowing with an arcane blue aura, re-commences, with a somewhat familiar 1-1-2 attack sequence.

The Eye of Eternity was merely a set-back.

No lies, whenever I did the Blood Council fight in ICC, I laughed my head off when it opened with, "Naxxanar was merely a setback!"

Also, I'm kinda tired of the whole floor falling away crap. For once, JUST ONCE, would it be too much to ask that the raid get sucked up in a vortex through the goddamn ceiling?

Perhaps Deathwing chould swallow random members of the raid, who then have to DPS their way out of his stomach, before the corrosive acids dissolve them into goo. They could even add a few hostile tentacles (polyps?) in his gut, as a homage to all the Old God minions that preceeded him.

Falling mechanism already in place, vortex sucking needs programmer time.

I have a feeling that Deathwing's Death fight monster hootfest of superfluous bad guys and amazing assaults will need to be completely epic, and mind blowing to keep from losing a large portion of their player base. 12 months into the expansion they are releasing the final raid for the expansion. To me, it feels like "sorry, we know things didn't go right. Lets move on."

Reasons I have seen given by people who have quit or have threatened to quit the game this expansion only:
Too easy
Too hard
Too grindy
Not grindy enough
Gear is too hard to get
Gear is too easy to get

Hopefully you can see the pattern.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

5k gold says Nefarion and Onyxia make a (re)(re)appearance.

Bonus points if the raid features (corrupted) Therazane, (corrupted) Neptulon, (reanimated) Al'akir, and an Elementium-Plated Ragnaros for the mandatory "Council Fight".
