How? As a casual player, the highest my ilvl is gonna get is from Zereth Mortis cypher gear, which caps out at 252, and isnt being increased in season 4. The lowest ilvl gear from normal raids in season 4 is gonna be 278. How am I going to get an invite to a slime cat run when my ilvl is over 20 lower than what the raid drops?
“Just run M+ to get better gear!” Oh, so now its not “dedicate enough time to running 3 full clears of normal raids” but also “dedicate enough time to get into M+ and upgrade all my gear”?
Blizz’s ‘solution’ was ‘we hope this encourages friendship moose style stuff’, but that only worked because it was a single boss at the end of a single raid. Slime cat requires a full clear of multiple raids over several weeks. Thats not going to be covered by friendship moose style community events.
