I caught myself wondering why I would run old-world instances. The loot is nice.. but I can’t imagine running a level 60 instance over and over again for a particular drop.. especially when I’ve been assured that 1 day in the outlands will replace all my old-world items.
So far I’ve run the old-world instances for two reasons:
– To complete quests (better exp)
– Specific (non-armor/non-weapon) loot wanted ([item]Mark of the Chosen[/item])
I don’t see any reasons beyond these two.
Instances I doubt I’ll ever do:
– Molten Core (40 man)
– Blackwing Lair (40 man)
– Naxxramas (40 man)
– Onyxia’s Lair(40 man)
– Zul’Gurub(20 man)
– Ruins of Ahn’Qiraj (20 man)
– Temple of Ahn’Qiraj (20 man)
Unless we take on one of the 40 mans with a bunch of level 70’s I doubt I’ll ever do a 40 man raid. The 20 mans are a possibility.. especially Zul’Gurub… I’d love to get the [item]Swift Zulian Tiger[/item] but still.. 20 people is a bit hard to manage. Idaknow.. seems like a lot of content going to waste.
I wonder if we’ll see the same thing when the level cap is moved to 80.
