Find out why Patch 5.4 is the best yet.
Not only is Siege of Orgrimmar an engaging raid instance, bringing the story of Mists of Pandaria to an awesome climax, but the new Flexi raid difficulty is genius. Easier than Normal but harder than LFR, Flexi raiding allows a pre-made group of up to 24 players to raid the final tier of this expansion in an environment that scales.
My 10-man raiding guild has already taken advantage of this new raid difficulty to not only progress through content faster than we normally would, but also to take all guildies we have online at raid start. Players that previously would have missed out due to unexpected, last minute commitments are now able to log online, say, an hour late, and join the raid group. More importantly, nobody goes on standby!
Our experience so far has been fantastic; some unsubscribed players have returned and guild morale is rising once more.
The icing on the cake comes with the introduction of the Timeless Isle, which prompted some of us to level long-neglected alts. Within an hour of hitting level 90 my Burning Crusade Warrior was raiding, thanks to the copious quantities of epic items obtained on the Isle of Fun.
This and so much more leads to a great big thumbs-up from me, but how about you? What’s your favorite part of Patch 5.4? Did Siege of Orgrimmar bring you back to WoW?
