Ya, I think the raiding process is ridiculous.. Tbh, they need to find another way to test raids without so much player involvement. Whats to keep people from pretty much staying in bullroarer? you can pvp there, run raids there... by the time it hits live everyone knows how to beat it, because of youtube BR videos. No fun there. Tired of all the farming..
Also, please stress this, its too easy for anybody to get the top gear. Most of it is luck based, aka horse lord recipes, which is just stupid. Nobody wants to spend a year in a crafting instance praying for the recipe to drop.. Also, i believe top tier raids need to drop the best jewels and gear. as of right now u can get most of the best gear simply by farming simple instances that take within 10.min to run. Why spend hours raiding when its not even the best gear? No reward there... So no point honestly. Difficulty is great, I love it, but the reward... No. waste of time..
Dont even get me started on pvp, its a lost cause. Though, they gotta find a way, hopefully the council does, to make it more even.. right now its just ridiculous. Nerf Waterlore!
