One less reason to do raids, well thanks Blizzard... really smart move.
What a terrible idea, this is a step-backwards. Do the devs even play WoW? Getting tier sets is probably one of the most rewarding feelings that you can get from raiding and now they're removing that feeling? Why?
So much for “class fantasy”, sounds like a lot of classes will have the same sets look-wise. I don’t like the sound of this, I enjoy seeing the new tier sets for every raid and what the art team has created to keep that class fantasy. I will be very upset if we get 4 generic looks each tier based on what the raid looks like. They’re probably just trying to cut as many corners as they can to get this new expansion out faster.
People are too early judging this decision. That's very vague what he is trying to say so why are jumping into conclusions? Just wait and see what happens. Gosh.
You know something is wrong when you wish Ghostcrawler was still around.
Finally. I hate tier sets. They are necessary and hard/impossible to replace even if you get gear 50 ilvl better (like current frost mage situation...)
I mean, Heart of Azeroth items will probably give us all the functionality that the Tier sets used to give. We're going from an expac where you sometimes had to juggle tier, sometimes older tier for the 2set, and two leggos.. to one where Leggos don't exist (in that form) and tier with 2/4set bonuses doesn't exist.Hell why not, we might get some kick-ass faction sets out of it too.
So the Azerite armor bonus are completely replacing the tier set bonuses. Seems like a good change to me. People won't be forced to run a raid on multiple difficulties, just for a chance to complete their tier set.
This sounds freaking terrible.. Some things just need left alone. Tier sets and their bonuses is one of them.
Good news: less loot drama about "I already have 3 pieces I totally deserve this 4th one over that other guy". Bad news: incoming mythic raiding death, it already nearly died in Legion since it's way more effort than hc raiding / mythic+ dungeons and the rewards are minimally better. I foresee people are just gonna clear hc in 1-2 hours and then spam mythic+ for the rest of the reset because why bother with mythic raiding? Mythic raiding is gonna be for method and maybe 50 other guilds in the world who do it for prestige / fame (especially if it keeps getting tuned around these top guilds). RIP I had fun with you, mythic (earlier heroic) since Cata, but if no people to play with, no go. :(
I honestly feel like, with all the legendary options this expansion, that this should have been done during Legion...not an expansion where our major component is a neckpiece.
Well lets just remove raiding altogether now...blizzard
SO happy if tier sets are actually going away!
It looks like they're experimenting with things like those trinkets like Aman'Thul's Vision in place of raid sets, I hope they aren't going to get rid of gear synergies altogether, provided they don't fall into the same trap they did with legendaries this expansion.
this is a great change, I hate feeling like Im losing out on one bonus to try and gain another.also sounds like to me they grew tired of making bonuses specific to classes and want more generic gear.
