Two and a half months into the expansion, I finally ran LFR for the first time. I ran on my resto druid because that is who I am raiding on, currently. Just did the first three bosses in Mogu’shan Vaults.
It is a cakewalk, but not a total faceroll because a lot of people don’t know the fights. Our LFR group didn’t explain the fights to anyone. The tanks just ran up and pulled. For the first fight, that was not a problem. Everyone can clearly see stuff not to stand in. On the second fight, it was a little tougher as people didn’t know what to do when they got the fire debuff. The third boss actually caused a wipe, as no one knew to go into the spirit realm.
My druid healing is not great these days. The priest and paladin in the raid totally blew away my healing numbers. I can’t tell if its me or the class – I’ve heard people saying that druid healers are not too effective right now.
The loot system was disappointing. On all three fights, all I got was a bag of gold. I would prefer to see what dropped so I had some sense of closure on the boss. That’s the way boss fights go – we show up, we do our thing for five minutes, then the boss dies and there is epic loot. Without the loot at the end, it seems so anticlimactic.
So I got nothing from my run, and I didn’t see what other people got. This does not inspire me with excitement to go back again. I guess I will, but not with any real excitement.
