So this morning I read that Blizzard won’t be giving us any new raid content in 4.1, and I breathe a sigh of relief. Not that I don’t want to have new raid content! It’s just that we’re hardly ready to be done with this content. Our raid group is at 6/12 bosses killed right now, having put in attempts on one other boss. That’s five encounters we haven’t even seen yet – we need to focus on what we have, not what’s coming.
More advanced raiders may complain that they’re already bored. Less advanced raiders, the sort who never got past Saurfang in ICC, may want new content to drop so they have a new set of three bosses to farm. But middle of the road groups like ours? This is perfect. The 5 mans in 4.1 will give us a chance to gear alts or new raiders more easily, fill in those annoying missing slots (wands, please, Blizzard. Maybe some trinkets too).
Now, if 4.2 doesn’t drop til, say, November, we may have to bring this up again. But right now I’m looking at a good chance to not just kill everything in this content tier, but also to start working on heroic modes, and that sounds like good news to me.
Also: Efflorescence as a smart, three-lowest-person, heal? Yes please!
