Are you not reading what was said? You asked why no LFR would be available. As has been pointed out to you the first part will be available in a week.

Considering the fact that you never even had LFR AT ALL until very recently, I find it hard to believe how you are "2nd category customers".

No its so the world first boss kill isn't by LFR.

I is being released by wing for 2 reasons.

1, So that it can be broken down in LFR to smaller groups of bosses instead of 1 x 16 boss mega grind we get 4 x 4 boss easy in and outs.

2, To give people with a raid group a chance to see things before those with out a regular raid group.

I don't really agree with holding us back a bit but meh, I have other things I can do while I wait. been like this since MoP launch so not that big of a deal.

And those hardcores that you do not care about could just as well say that they don't care that you are not able to just waltz in an slay Lei Shen in the first week ;-)

We are trying to take the interests of both casuals as well as hardcores (and everyone in between of course) into consideration with the staggered release of the Throne of Thunder raid.

You may not approve, but we feel it is fair compromise for everyone if the players who prefer to use the Raid Finder gets to experience the content, but not so soon that Lei Shen is being farmed for weeks via the raid finder before normal/heroic raiders even gets to have a go at him.

Having the end boss of a raid dungeon on farm status via the raid finder diminishes the epic feeling of defeating that boss for the first time in normal/heroic raids, and we would like to avoid that with Lei Shen as much as possible - at least in the beginning while the raid is still fresh for the normal/heroic raiders.

We know that the players who raid primarily via the Raid Finder want to see the new content sooner rather than later, and to accommodate that we plan to release the first two wings faster than the last two.

Let's get real here, they could just replace the loot in 5.0 lfr with the new 502 epics and most of the slot machi-I mean lfr raiders wouldn't even care about the new raid.

and the hardcore raiders dont care about you little casuals getting all bosses for free in lfr therefore they will now remove lfr so you can cry when you are 0/12 progress after 1 month still and dont get to see !@#$, like in the old days when real men played the game, not little kindergarden crying school girls.


For free? i pay same fee as you, also time is money kid. You also call me kindergarten crying whatever, for me you are it, so vocal every time anything is not like you want, lol.

You may not approve


I do not, but im over it after a couple hours, I will just do it later or maybe gear up and try normal, Whatever, im over it and for me this thread can aswell be closed. Thanks for all the replies.

edit: All responses except for Vaneras unsproffesional(imho) answer he felt he needed to add smileys to. I thought as a GM you are suppose to be in the middle, not on one of the sides. Also please... epic feeling? they are doing it in their guild, with friends, on normal/hc mode, where nobody will grief them... I think They would feel pretty epic either way if i had LFR or not.

As you said you are still gearing, you can still run LFR for MSV HOF and ToES with an increased chance for gear to drop.

And because all of these raids are now available for cross realm maybe go to open raid eu or with friends from different servers and get normal/heroic gear while you wait for the new lfrs.
