No New 5 Mans - Will They be Missed?
So, looking at some of the changes for LFR, it feels more and more like LFR is going to be a permanent replacement for 5 mans, after the initial expansion has launched. By that I mean, 5 mans will be the stepping to stone to LFR/initial raid tier, then LFR will take over the yoeman's work for things like alt gearing.
If what's being reported on the PTR holds true we're going to be able to choose what spec we want for purposes of loot drops and coin rolls and according to a GC tweet it will be on a per boss basis, not when you que. Right now we have the increased drop rate for LFR and we're seeing 502 ilvl items in failbags in the newest tier (I opened a bag and received plate healing boots ilvl 502); more VP gear for more slots; It does not appear that any new 5 mans are in the offing this x-pac.
So I guess the issue is, will anyone miss the new 5 mans that come along as an x-pac matures?
