No New Dungeons? What Does That Mean For WoW?

by on March 13, 2013


Yep, the word is out – there will be no new 5-man dungeons, at all, for the rest of Mists of Pandaria.

That’s pretty startling news – but what does it mean?

Well, several bloggers have been looking into that very question – and they’ve got some interesting theories…

  • Azuriel thinks that the very notion of a 5-man dungeon is outdated in modern WoW, and he thinks we might be inches away from them disappearing entirely“Are they necessary for anything anymore? “Practice for raiding?” I don’t know if anyone would agree that they have such an effect, if they ever did. “
  • And The Grumpy Elf actually thinks this is a really good thing that will free up resources for other areas of the game“As far as I see it, no new five mans means we have the potential for more content, better content, and I actually am being pushed to play those characters I do not play often more. “

What do you think?

Sounds like Blizzard wants people to use LFR and Scenarios, not 5-mans. Considering that a 5-man instance has just the right amount of length for PvE content for me, this seems pretty silly.

Or perhaps we’re overlooking the obvious: developers are being pulled into Titan, and WoW’s development will be winding down.

I think that it just shows that they like scenarios, and that these will replace 5-man dungeons.

The upshot? Its one more thing that you can queue for solo, and that doesn’t depend on class makeup or the “holy trinity” of tank, healer, and dps. One more way that group content is diluted. One more way that guilds are made less relevant and the idea of playing with friends is diminshed.

My guild still runs 5 mans together. I can’t think of anyone queuing as a group for a scenario.

Seems to me that blizzard is trying to break up guilds, break up friends and alliances.
