Patch 4.3 Raid Finder introduces a new opportunity for casual players and semi-hardcore alts to experience end game content.
Blizzard have decided to gate access to end-tier gear. You can’t buy tier 13 with valor points. You have to raid to get the gear.
Will Raid Finder Work?
Are you serious? Does dungeon finder work? Sure, I’ve had some great pugs, with everyone pulling their weight and treating each other with respect. But they’re rare.
Usually I get lumbered with new 85s, lazy angsty nubs who delight in ninja looting, ninja pulling, sleeping in the fire and randomly going AFK. When you’re not even wearing any raid gear, but are doing 40% of the dps, despite stopping to combat res the fire hugging healer, you know 4 nubs are being carried. Again.
Blizzard’s answer is to dumb down their content further, which drives me even crazier.
Is there an antidote to Raid Finder?
If patch 4.3 raid finder is as bad as dungeon finder tool then we’re going to need a solution. Sure, you can dump your bf/gf, sell your children, pack in your day job and rejoin that hardcore raid guild. Or join a “brand new” social-raid guild composed of 20 dps and 1 healer.
I think a better solution is to resurrect GDKP, gold dkp.
With GDKP, you can be assured that your pug members will be buffed, prepped, and focused.Â Players are less likely to stand in fire when they hear the sound of their gold burning.
Are you going to be using raid finder?
