    so raid finder

    is gonna eventually have all the bosses the actual dragon soul raid has right? cuz i was curious today and ran it and it went better then expected

    It will next week have all 8.

    I really really like it. The hardcore raider in me, loves the ability to practice my rotation movement etc. in a raid environment when ever I want. The alt-roller-in-me loves that I can raid on all my alts without a massive time commitment of pugging.

    ya,alts is probably where im gonna use raid finder the most(sucks my alt is like 351 item lvl).i was basically just bored and curious on how pugs were and it didnt seem that bad

    although the new heroics drop like 378 item lvl gear so maybe it wont take that long to get geared for it

    Its a bit too easy but that's what makes it successful for groups who have no clue what they're doing. Could have a bit more oneshot abilities like the ice in the hagara fight to make people learn not to stand in shit.

    What leethaxor said its nice for an altoholic

    What I liked was when I killed myself at Hagara on my hunter (FYI you can't disengage over the ice wall) was I got a message telling me what I died to and how I could avoid dying to it in the future.

    Deathwing needs to be killed a several thousand times before he's weak enough for LFR.

    I've healed it twice and it's just fun chaos. I had a big smile the whole time, having a ball watching the insanity of it all. It's the like Keystone Cops raiding. Blizz really did a good job with it, hope it never really becomes too serious.

    This! I love destroying healing on my priest knowing I'm the only thing standing between chaos and order :P

    The patch dropped on Nov. 29th and the first LFR nerf was announced in the December 2 patch notes.

    On the Hagara fight, the "Ice Ialls now move 15% slower on LFR Raidfinder difficulty".

    Okay, I'm far from elitist and I'm far from a great raider, and I thoroughly enjoy the LFR, but really, 3 days and the Ice Walls had to be slowed. Give the player base some credit for being able to adapt before nerfing right out of the box; although on Hagara it's pretty funny seeing all the red 0 health frames on Healbot as that phase progresses and seeing all the comments in raid chat.

    Especially as if you die to that mechanic you get a server message telling you that you died to the Ice Wall and that you should start running earlier next time...

    Okay, the WoW gods got me back, I died on the Ice Wall last night, I ran into the damn thing cause it's going so slowly; I'm Smiting the crystal behind me, I see the wall come up, I spin run and BAM catch right up to the wall in front of me and die. I deserved it.

    I got kicked in the ass by the ice wall on normal 10 man...3 beers in and not paying attention. Luckily I was dpsing like a noob and not tanking so it mattered a little less.

    LOL i did exactly the same Slowed Walls caught me out.
    I actually randomly became the raid leader and succesfully co-ordinated 4/4 kills reading the tacts off of my iphone while doing it

    Was fun tho i was suprised at how well it went and my dad absolutely loves it (he finds real raiding a bit to stressful bless)

    cuz i know you get one from killin deathwing,was thinkin about runnin raid finder today for my weekly raid finder pug but im just wonderin if i actually manage to kill deathwing(unless i missed some info and deathwing would be added in later and not with all the other bosses)would i get the destroyers end title

    cuz i know when i did the first four i actually got the achievement for it and it was the regular achievement so im just wonderin

    Destroyer's End is from Normal and Heroic, not available on LFR

    As far as I am aware there are no titles, or achievements for that matter, in the Looking For Raid difficulty.
