I wanted to respond to some comments in the recent interview blitz we’ve seen. There were various comments that I’m going to sum up as the following.
- They want us killing more trash
- Reaping is too easy
Most of this is about the trash comment. BfA Mythic+ is already longer than Legion by a good bit overall. There are no short dungeons. Dungeons like King’s Rest always push the maximum timer.
Trash is wayyyy harder in BfA than Legion. They’ve taken steps to reduce this, and that is appreciated. But when you look at things like Fortified, Sanguine, Bolster and how those interact with BfA dungeons design we spend a whole lot of time on trash as it is. Tyrannical in general feels MUCH better balanced as far as what you spend your time doing.
If they want us killing even more trash I think it needs to get neutered back down to Legion level. Where we’re pulling big and fast. BfA trash design just doesn’t let you do this due to how dangerous the trash has become.
Just a bit on Reaping. I agree that it’s maybe a bit easy, but it’s also been fun. Even when you look at the MDI and them pulling huge reaping packs into bosses and such. Like there’s a lot of good fun factor there, and I just want to emphasize that. I HATED M+ with infested, that was not a fun affix at all.
BfA trash takes plenty of time as is. Whatever changes they want to make, I really hope it also ends in a net less time spent on trash.
