Why 25 man raids man may still be better in Cataclysm

 The WoW blogosphere had been pretty quiet as of late I felt but today, wow! A flurry of posts suddenly!

I know, I know, everyone has been buzzing over Blizzard's huge announcement today about 10 and 25 man raids dropping the same loot in Cataclysm.

People have been making the same points, all equally valid, about why 10 man raids will overtake 25 man raids, especially since 10/25 mans will now share the same lockout.
  1. Easier organization
  2. Intimacy & sense of comaderie
  3. Less logistics
  4. Less people necessary
  5. Casual friendly
It seems the entire blogosphere has collectively agreed that 10 mans will be much more attractive in 25 man raids. Yet I want to throw an idea out there.

I think Blizzard is amp-ing up to make an announcement for Cataclysm that will make 25 man raids more attractive than 10 man raids.

Far fetched? I think not, it really feels to me that Blizzard is setting the stage for something. And what is that something? Here goes...


Remember a little feature called Guild Advancement?? I bet that 25 man raid achievements are going to tie directly into this and there are going to be 25 man raid only perks that 10 man raiding guilds can not receive. I believe that is where 25 man raiding guilds will be able to gain an advantage over 10 man raids.

It makes sense to me that Blizzard would go this route as they are going to be heavily stressing the guild progressing as a unit to level up the guild. That is why Blizzard is now comfortable with making 10 and 25 man raids drop the same loot.

Some ideas I had for the potential 25 man only perks are:
  • 25 man exclusive crafting patterns
  • 25 man only mounts & pets
  • Much larger gold increases from boss downs
  • Much higher rate of crafting reagents drop from bosses
  • Larger guild bank
I think this route means that 25 mans still have a slight advantage over 10 mans but not to a point where 25 mans are obviously so much better.

So what do you guys think? My theory holds water or it is full of crap? Let me know in the comments!

Till next time, RL calls!

P.S. Another topic that is building buzz it seems is the new add on featured by MMO Champion, AVR. So far ixobelle and rhidach have written about it. Looks interesting...

  1. That's like Houston Texas being without a Country station. They also apparently believe that their customers who like a particular song they hear on the radio, are likely to purchase that song, which could add to downloads from i - Tunes. But mostly BBC Radios 4 and 5 because, being speech orientated, they're more
    like what I do, so I can learn lots from them.

  2. The developers are saying that Defiance is a pixel perfect shooter, so if you aim at your target's head it WILL be a headshot instead of the invisible dice rolling a 5 and telling you that you somehow missed. Aside from the obvious difficulties of pitching so brilliantly in such a high pressure situation, Larsen's
    feat is even more impressive when one considers that the Dodgers had four future Hall
    of Famers in their lineup: Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Pee Wee
    Reese. t love the unself-conscious little boy or girl, the undaunted miniature explorer who moves with
    unbridled enthusiasm to experience life.

  4. There are many free online games readily available for young
    kids, teens, as well as grown ups. Then came the ultra-popular Arkham games, that place you,
    like never before, into Batman's shoes as he skulks around and knocks hoodlums heads together (literaly). We carry R4 SDHC, DSTT, R4i SDHC, Acekard 2i, EZFlash Vi, M3i Zero, and now the i - Edge.

  5. - Approximately 80% of Facebook users acknowledge consistently checking a former ex's Facebook page. If you already have your Facebook fan or business page created you will need to have 25 fans or "LIKES" in order to create a custom URL. And it's not like Facebook to remain behind the hidden object games frenzy.

  7. It iis based on computer with electrographic sensor technology.
    Age Level - A good factor to write about is the
    appropriate age level for the video game that you are reviewing.

    If you want to be able to hit the ball further and harder, you should keep
    in mind to keep your grip on the bat loose, your swing should begin
    with your legs and hips, and finally, you must always follow your bat through.

  10. The most attractive feature of an online radio tuner is
    its ability to record what you're listening to. Her first movie was Holiday in the Sun in the year 2001, Help in the year 2004. Do I have a niche or speciality that is going to make my station unique and successful.

  11. In most cases they are, but when it comes to updates,
    patches, etc to the mmorpgs. While having a passion for playing games
    is important, getting a rewarding career in game design
    will require students to be a cut above the competition.

  13. Once the game is 80% complete you will need to work on the sound. t want to forget to buy your all star game tickets at Angels Stadium from an independent ticket broker that cares more about customer satisfaction than the bottom line. People are now looking to be able to connect to things like their vehicles through their smart phones, and now Buick has announced the release of their new e - Assist Fuel Effeciency smartphone games.

  14. Try simple games and check how your internet connection is and then move on play
    more games. However, every character in the game (even supporting players) should be presented in this same detail.

  17. I understand that those are the products designed by manufacturers to make
    them money and if they are endorsed by winning popular professionals, sales will be high.

  18. Congress tried in 2007 to pass a measure that would lock in
    the rate that could be charged through 2010 at 7.

  20. Much like Safari, the Camera app, the App Store and i - Pod, Game
    Center has no option to be deleted when editing your apps.
    Say you're doing as well at Chemistry, and as you are doing at Maths Extension 2, then instead of splitting your study time equally between the two (just because they are both worth 2 units each), you should spend more time on Extension 2, simply because it scales higher. In this addictive puzzle game, catch that damn fly and avoid those tricky obstacles.

  22. Whilst you could get a partner or close friend to
    give your shoulders, back or feet a good rub down, to truly feel
    long-term benefits you should enlist the services of a trained professional to give
    you regular massages. Palma has a range of top-notch clubs,
    and Tito’s is one of the most popular.

  23. You might need heavier line and tackle to account for powerful river flows.
    Sea fishing can take place from a boat, from a pier or jetty
    or from the beach or by an estuary. One can find another 2 options as
    to wholesale fishing rod, which might be hollow-tip rods and
    reels and spliced-tip rods.
