Today i logged on to see some 70 level hunter shouting from the rooftops "I got a ______" The item's name was in orange text, something I never saw before. In my curiosity, i right clicked it to check the stats, and it has immense amounts of DPS, as well as creating it's own arrows, 200 at a time, with a 30 sec cooldown. Now, i asked "Where did you get that" he says raids and left it at that. Some other 70 said they could only be used in a certain raid instance. I wondered, "what is the point of that?". lets take a look back in time, shall we?
Before the burning crusade, they had 5 man instances levels 15-60. Those were fun, you didn't spend hours making a huge raid, and loot was easier to divide. Then the level 60s complained, and they got things like onyxia's lair, molten core, etc. That was really cool, because when you do the same 5 man instance over and over again, it gets boring. Now, there are 10 man level 70 raid instances like zul aman. I was just wondering: Why? Why do we need to make things so challenging that we need special ultra powerful gear just to do it.
What are your thoughts on this.
