LFR only, most likely. Maybe some Flex if I can be bothered to look for an Openraid group and if SoO will be available cross-realm.

N/H and Flex for me. The day Flex was announced was the day LFR became dead to me and I haven't shed a single tear over it.

N/H + Flex

Flex when we can get more than 10 people, which should be most weeks. N/H for weeks where can only get 10 or want to clear older content for some reason.
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.

Is this board going to need to be renamed "maingeriatridin"?

Nah, for everyone "me", Bara, and the like, there are plenty of still going tankadins, and various other new people.

Hell, I've not been a tankadin in a very very very long time. Outside of ICC, and the beginning of Cata, I haven't been a "Tankadin" since T5/6 except for part timing it.

When we ran into too many tanks in our final push in BT, I just swapped to Ret, and really only part time tanked things after Dual Spec landed, until ICC when we ran into a Tank Shortage. Then came HP, and I.... went to the dark side.

I just love this place. I haven't played WoW in over a year, and I still don't go more than a few days without checking.

QFT. Maintankadin or not, this is the only place I know I can get a decent convo on pretty much anything. *Looks at Flex lockout thread* Almost. And even the it's better than anywhere else.

If I was still raiding I'd probably do Normal/some Heroic and LFR for valor. Flex probably only if the regular raid group was short people or something. Mainly because running Flex would require getting into another organised group. Also seems like it'll tend toward large groups, and I hate 25 man.

But doesn't really matter, since I never even log in now.

I'm not sure what I'll run. In a way, they are not competing activities for me: Flex at least initially will be a guild thing, and my guild raids only once a week, while LFR is essentially a solo activity I can do whenever. So I'm not really fearing the "burn out" thing that sparked the long Flex/LFR thread.

However, heroic scenarios have already taken a big dent out of the attractiveness of LFR for me. I used to think it was the most interesting way to get VPs. But hc scens are just SO much more time efficient, I am not sure I can be bothered with LFR anymore. Also, it feels like LFR gear will be much less of an upgrade for my gear (522+2/2) than it was before. Is it just 2 item levels better? Not sure I want to spend 500 VPs per piece upgrading to get that.

I suspect I will run only LFR a few times for orientation; perhaps more if there are any more fights like Will of the Emperor where practicing as a tank would be really useful.

Ideally, my guild will be able to focus on normals and Flex will take off like ICC PUGs, so I can join them in weekend nights when my guild is not raiding. But that may take consolidated servers for that to happen as my server is pretty dead.

One other factor that was really ignored in the other thread.. if you have your damn cape, there's a lot less reason to be running LFR, as you will only run what you need to fill specific slots.

Probably just LFR for me, with a little Flex if I have the time to jump onto someone's cross realm run

I marked all three, because I really don't know. Depends on my guildmaster and if his tolerance for absentee BS is lower or higher than mine.

It tells. :P

Going from 0 to 1000 valor is just running a couple of HC Scenarios. You can Valor cap within the hour. LFR is such a slow method to cap, I don't think anyone is running it purely for valor at this point. Sure, the valor is a nice extra if you happen to run it, but nothing more.

You missed the bit about not wanting to have the hassle of forming an organised group for things. I don't do Heroic Scenarios.

Form a group, yes. Organized group, not at all required. I'll just post LF 2 DPS HC Scenario in /trade, and invite the first two that respond.

Up to you, of course.

Even if you wanted to be picky, the 5 minutes it would take you to find 2 people for a HC SCN is still a factor of 5 less than the time you'd be in the LFR queue.

It's interesting to see that LFR will still have its place though, perhaps when only the people who actually want to run it, run it, it'll be a nicer experience for all involved.

Considering that most of the people who run LFR are kids that know nothing of teamplay and yell GOGOGOGOGO every 2 minutes, not sure if it'll be a nicer experience.
